Things we liked, or didn’t like, from around the internet this week.
Woman has breasts, minds blow.
The end is Naenae has a lovely piece on Emily Longley, violence, abuse, and how it is perpetuated in our society. (I – Tallulah – cried reading it, but I’m a big wuss.)
Ms Naughty blogs on recent coverage of porn issues in Australian current affairs, and how, yet again, a survey on “porn addiction” has been used to characters all porn viewers as paedophiles.
For reporter Rebecca Baillie, an 800-person survey of self-identified problem porn users can easily be applied to the entire porn-watching population. Worse still, she then went on to suggest that a compulsive use of adult porn led to an inevitable use of child abuse material.
Clarisse Thorn on removing BDSM from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
Steve Braunias examines the inner workings of the mind of Colin Craig. I don’t think any of us are surprised.
Imperator Fish wonders whose brain is this, and comments on John Key’s lifestyle choices.
And a lovely piece of satire from LudditeJourno: STOP: National Party press release: Vasectomies and limited liability.
Something pretty: a postcard from Berlin, which a friend of mine (Deb’s) who is holidaying there at present sent to me. It was a delight to receive real mail, and especially such a saucy piece.
Dancing couple, by Henrich Zille
1858 – 1929
“Dreaming under trees in the springtime with a girl on your side makes worries disappear.” 1925
