Selfless Signal-Boosting (November)

Recommend someone else‘s writings/events/fundraisers etc: this signal-boosting thread is 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.

    I’ve been loving Because I’m Fabulous, “a little blog about raising a fabulous teen.” This week she posted about challenges getting people to use gender neutral pronouns, and includes a wonderful comic on pronoun etiquette from Robot Hugs: http://secretlyfabulous.wordpress.com/2014/10/29/my-invisible-child/

    I came across two great pieces this week:

    I Was A High School Feminist writes about issues of consent and bodily autonomy with toddlers.

    And a fantabulous post from Glynnis MacNicol wondering what the heck happened to all the Princess Leia toys from her childhood: Where the Fuck is Princess Leia? Help me, multi-gazillion dollar toy industry, you’re my only hope.

    It’s kind of a starting point to get definitions into your brain, but it’s nice anyway.

    Read it if you want a refreshing restart in feminism! :)
