Things we liked, or didn’t like, from around the internet this week.
A lovely post from FoTLG Megan, about the joy of craft and crafting, and recovering skills and living the dream. It resonated with me (Deb) because I have been Too Busy, and I need to recover some craft space. And because in the past I have reflected on feminism and craft.
On breasts in advertising and how, it seems, sex doesn’t actually sell.
From Autism and Oughtisms, a post that applies in some respects to all mothers, but cuts so close for mothers of children with disabilities: A Depersonalised Motherhood (aka, Parents are People Too. Many thanks for FoTLG Stef for sending the link to me (Deb).
Via Ophelia Benson’s news feed at Butterflies and Wheels, some caustic observations on the way the Vatican uses the term, “feminist”: Vatican’s term “radical feminist” says more about cardinals than nuns they rebuke.
Members of the Vatican hierarchy are using the word “feminist” and even “radical feminist” the way third-graders use the word “cooties.”
