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)), Content Notes are not needed if your post title is already descriptive of problematic content.
  • 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.

    I wrote about how trauma and violence, left secret, can play out over time: “A bathroom can no more kill / than a blow job.

    I also did some exploring of the stereotype of feminists as “man-haters”: I May Be a Man-Hating Feminist; or, When do tigers matter more than people?

    I’ve been doing some writing about the dating site OKCupid’s expansion of the orientation and gender options on their site.

    A general look at what the new options are (and what they aren’t)

    A critique of how OKCupid handled the first-stage roll-out

    Some major problems with what appears to be the final implementation.

    Though I should say, they’re still best in the business when it comes to having these options at all. eHarmony still requires bisexual people to open two accounts if they want to be able to message both men and women, so.

    I’d like to shamelessly promote the new issue of Crossed Genres magazine — some great stories up with our February issue.

    As all y’all might (or might not!) know, we work tirelessly over at CGM to publish diverse works and writers, LGBT writers, works by and about disabled writers — anyway, have a look at the February issue!

    Is Transition A Cop-Out? Part 2. Do people transition for social approval? What should we do when politics conflict with life?

    Who Do You Think You Are? Don’t trade a cage for a carpeted cage.

    This week I wrote about the “small” acts of sexism that women face every day. Are they a big deal? Or are we making mountains out of molehills?
