  • 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.

    so happy this is back!

    this week I blogged about janice erlbaum’s book “Have You Found Her?” about mentoring teen girls

    In the spacefem forums, we’re discussing how to maintain relationships when your friends become parents. and the related all-important question, do you bring the one pink gift to the it’s-a-boy-so-make-everything-blue baby shower just to be subversive? :)

    we also love Kate Goodman’s song Sorry Babe You’re a Feminist

    This is mostly just silliness, but I did an Uptown Funk parody with Disney Guys:

    Li Shang and Prince Phillip are so hot, they make Mushu and Maleficent wanna retire, man!

    It at least has some feminist commentary in that I re-cut it to try to make Aurora and Mulan a lot more interested in the guys and proactively checking them out than the women were in the original song. It’s still a male-centered song (obvs!), but I think there’s a lot of difference between being a supporting character and being objectified.

    Some more on the making-of is here.

    A white man recently “performed” a reading of Michael Brown’s autopsy report (only slightly modified) as an act of what he calls “conceptual poetry.” I call it a horrifying act of racist appropriation: After the Autopsy

    I wrote about the forgotten women of #BlackLivesMatter, inspired by a great piece by Tasha Fierce.

    I also wrote about watching a young black man get arrested on the train, and how it’s even more disturbing in the context of the Ferguson report and SFPD’s racist and homophobic text messages.

    I posted a video and some information about NARAL Pro-Choice CA’s undercover investigation of anti-choice pregnancy centers that lie to and manipulate women to keep them from choosing abortion.

    You might have heard about SB 1318, which is Arizona’s 28th attack on abortion rights since 2009. My “favorite” feature of this bill is that it requires abortion providers to inform their patients that medication abortion can be “reversed,” which is not based in any medical evidence. Unfortunately, the bill passed the Senate after we published this great article about it — that doesn’t mean that you still can’t call the governor and ask him to veto it if you live in Arizona (602-542-4331).

    Also, a rundown on your options for HIV testing (more varied than many might think).

    This week I wrote three blog posts I’m proud of.
    One’s on self-love and the struggle of raising a child (my niece) to love herself, too: I call self-loving a feminist act.

    Another one is one the hypocritical expectations of women and how patriarchy has devalued women’s private parts in an attempt to elevate men, masculinity, manhood, and men’s private parts:

    And the last piece I wrote looks at the misogyny of the recent mob attack and murder of the Afghan woman, Farkhanda:

    Among the top 50 metro areas in the US, Pittsburgh ranks 49th (yes, 2nd to last) in terms of LGBT residents (residency.)

    This is what spring depression looks like to me.

    And in one week, we acknowledge the 5th month anniversary of the disappearance of a local gay black man (Andre Gray), learned that his body had been recovered from the Ohio river and shared his funeral arrangements.

    I recently wrote a response to a study that named /r/ShitRedditSays as most toxic subreddit.

    I’ve also been trying out some link roundup style posts lately.

      Awesome piece re: reddit, thanks for sharing!

    I recently put together some listicles on whether or not men can be feminists – it’s a topic I plan on writing on soon.

    I traveled to the US this month, prompting me to write a tongue-in-cheek guide on how to have the most feminist flight ever.

    I also wrote a little bit about my experience with an eating disorder. I’ve never publicly written about this before so I was kind of terrified to publish it!

    Finally, I changed the layout of my blog to one that I think is a little more professional than the old one. Feedback welcome!

    Please check out the This Is What We Look Like Campaign promoting the presence, awareness, and progress of women in traditionally male dominated fields by filling the web with images of women doing what is usually considered men’s work:
    Please join, and spread the word.
    Let’s change the way we think about women and work!

    This is Nathan Rhodes author of the book “Murder Seen through the Eyes of a Child” I was wondering whether you would like to run a free excerpt of my book in your (newsletter/magazine/blog/website). I would be very happy to send you the excerpt.

    The book features life in the coal fields of Eastern Kentucky. It highlights a family’s fight to protect their land from destructive mining practices.

    My book appears on, so if you are an Amazon Affiliate, you can use your Amazon affiliate link in or under the excerpt if you prefer.
    If you have any questions I am right here.
    Have a great day!
