Selfless Signal-Boosting (August)

This thread is for recommending someone else‘s writings/events/fundraisers etc: signal-boosting as a complement to our long-standing Shameless Self-Promotion Sundays. Use this thread for ICYMI links and anything else you think other readers might find interesting.

Especially welcome are links to those who are blogging on issues Feministe has not recently addressed (the links can be to older posts, just something you’ve found recently relevant).  Please save the self-promotion links for Sundays – use this thread to let Feministe readers know about the other blogs you love to read, and activist/celebration events you long to attend, especially from those on the margins of the mainstream social justice communities, who tend to not get as much exposure as they should.


Netiquette Guidelines:

  1. Effective signal boosting names the article author(s) and/or organising bodies.
  2. Include content notes/trigger warnings/NSFW alerts where needed as a courtesy to other readers.
  3. Keep this thread focussed on the linking – the idea is to make your comments on the other blogs being linked!  (seconding/thirding etc is fine, adding extra Content Notes for the benefit of other readers is a community service, linking further/related reading is always welcome, but keep it short and sweet)
  4. If you have Reasons to not leave a response on a recommended article, don’t just dump it on this thread  ~ analytical discussions about various links belong on the Open Thread or Spillover.

    This is brilliant and mind-blowing. It’s two years ago, but as relevant as ever: Latin@s, Israel, and Palestine: understanding anti-Semitism by Aurora Levins Morales, a Puerto Rican Jew.

    Article about CeCe Mcdonald in the Rolling Stone. Talks about McDonald’s life but also about the the problems trans* folks (twoc in particular) face. Good read. Here’s the link.

    I recommend Echidne of the Snakes written by a goddess whose day job is statistician. Passionate and intelligent.

    What Californication can teach us about rape culture

    This article examines Hank Moody’s interactions with women as a frame in a much larger discussion on things like Nice Guy Syndrome, male entitlement to women’s bodies, female desire, double-binds, and much much more. Seriously worth reading regardless of whether you are familiar with the show or the character – I’ve never even seen a single episode :P

    Carefree Black Girl: The Life And Death Of Karyn Washington

    The 22-year-old creator of the For Brown Girls blog and the #DarkSkinRedLip project epitomized the Tumblr-popularized image of a Carefree Black Girl. After news of her suicide spread this spring, many were left asking: How could a woman whose mission was to uplift others take her own life?
