Links This Week

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Debbie says: This is only the beginning of a wonderful comic from Gallery of Dangerous Women … Cuteosphere, the cartoonist, says: it always disappointed me that Monster Girls are an anime porn thing rather than something used to explore the way society and the media dehumanises women, but oh well shout out to all my […]

Long Overdue Links

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Debbie says So the site was down, and various things happened, and we’ve been posting a little less frequently than usual, and the links have been piling up like nobody’s business. I’m going to trim off some of the old ones from the list, but this will still get long … *** This will come […]

Tuesday Linksday

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

Debbie says: The “it’s all about me and my feelings” club has a new self-elected president, Jen Caron: A few weeks ago, as I settled into an exceptionally crowded midday class, a young, fairly heavy black woman put her mat down directly behind mine. It appeared she had never set foot in a yoga studio—she […]

Tuesday Linksday

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

Debbie says: A very rich selection of links this week: Extreme wheelchair sports provide great visuals: Wheelz does what he calls WCMX, or wheelchair motocross. It’s like BMX, except with four wheels instead of two. Oh, and a disability thrown in just to keep it interesting. Wheelz practically invented the sport. There are other wheelchair […]

Thanksgiving 2013: So Much to Be Thankful For

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

Laurie and Debbie say: There’s so much good news that we’re leaving stuff out! Let’s start with an in-your-face inspiring video. “Say it right or don’t say it at all,” says Sha’Condria “iCon” Sibley, 2012 National Poetry Slam Championship Team, in a video entitled “For All the Little Black Girls with Big Names (dedicated to […]

Everything You Know About Nutrition Is Wrong, And the Critics Aren’t Helping

Sunday, November 24th, 2013

Debbie says: In Woody Allen’s movie Sleeper, which is now 40 years old , a man (Woody Allen) time travels to the future, where (of course), they find him very strange. In this sequence, two doctors discuss their time traveler’s food preferences: Dr. Melik: This morning for breakfast he requested something called “wheat germ, organic […]

Births and Deaths in Real Time: A Different Way of Making the Invisible Visible

Friday, November 1st, 2013

Debbie says: Laurie and I often talk about “making the invisible visible,” by which we usually mean taking something people look at every day (like fat women’s bodies, or male bodies) and providing a different way of seeing whatever it might be. There are other ways to make the invisible visible. In these days of […]

Breast Cancer: Just the Facts, Ma’am

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Laurie and Debbie say: It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the United States, which might be a good thing if it increased breast cancer awareness. Instead, it far too often reinforces stereotypes, gives marketers a hook, and increases the amount of pink in the world. Before we get to the two stories that got us […]

Birth Control: Have It Your Way

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Debbie says: We humans are just so ridiculously good at telling each other what everybody should be doing, when we really mean, “Hey! I found out what I should be doing!” Jill at Feministe provides the latest example. Holly Grigg-Spall, for whom birth control pills were A Bad Idea, has written a book called Sweetening […]

Evolutionary Psychology Gets the Thrashing It Deserves

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Debbie says: Before I start this post on an almost completely unrelated topic, I just want to say briefly that I wish I had the superpowers to protect all the young black men who are at newly-empowered risk of vigilante violence. Justice has not been served, racism is alive and well, and there is almost […]
