Shameless Self-Promotion Sunday

Promote yourself.

Netiquette reminders:

  • Want to recommend someone else’s writing instead? Try the latest signal-boosting thread.
  • we expect Content Notes as a courtesy to our readers for problematic content in linked posts and/or their comment threads (a habit of posting only triggering/disparaging links may annoy the Giraffe (you really don’t want to annoy the Giraffe))
  • extended discussion of self-promotion links on this thread is counter-productive for the intended signal-boosting –  the idea is for the promoted sites to get more traffic.  If it’s a side-discussion that would be off-topic/unwelcome/distressing on the other site, take it to #spillover after leaving a note on this thread redirecting others there.

  1. Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of the assassination of Dr. George Tiller by an anti-abortion extremist. Dr. Tiller was admired for his willingness to help when no one else would, and as an advocate for the agency and autonomy of pregnant people. Read about his legacy and why Dr. Tiller’s work was so controversial. We remember him for the safe, compassionate care he provided his patients.

    I’ve found that when MRAs whine about feminism the real problem turns out to be patriarchy. Same with MRA, Elliot Roger:

    And, the porn industry may not be full of brilliant marketing strategists. But whether deliberate or not, creating male tastes for things that an awful lot of women don’t like is bound to increase sales, as porn becomes the only place you can get it.

    I have an op-ed on Huffington Post today about Colorado’s new revenge porn statute. I coauthored the piece with two other law professors at the University of Denver, Ian Farrell and Justin Pidot. Drawing on our expertise in constitutional and/or criminal law, we argue that the statute is constitutional and good public policy.

    PS. I love this weekly thread. I always find great things here that I probably wouldn’t otherwise. Thank you for providing this forum!

    Posting for a good friend with a good new blog, “Trolling the Patriarchy,” where she chronicles her purposeful misadventures in tindering.

    The bio for the blog reads,

    “If you can’t smash it,
    then troll the patriarchy.

    trolling tinder boys who want to hit it.”

    A trollolercoaster of a ride.

    Apologies, but three of the links I mentioned above don’t work any more because I changed the date on the posts so they would show up in a different order in my list of posts, and that automatically changed their URLs. Here are the new links for the bingo cards:
