Things we liked, or didn’t like, from around the internet this week.
Over at The Hand Mirror, Anthea takes apart Sam Judd’s article about teh horrible fatteez, and the Queen of Thorns does the same with the latest manifestation of the-only-good-incubator-is-a-pure-incubator meme.
At Feministe, a discussion on how to encourage your kids to delay having sex without “being all shamey”. It’s honest, nuanced, and to me (Emma) anyway, still very problematic.
Sandra gets her rant on at Letters from Wetville: Breaking news! Men demand more opportunities to care for the elderly for no pay, make cakes for the school gala and clean floors. Do you think she’s being just a bit sarcastic?
The Pervocracy goes Cosmocking again. This time, their sex tips based on Fifty Shades of Grey. That’s right. Surprise BDSM.
you might be able to guess what your partner likes if you stick to the cultural standards. When you do BDSM, you can’t guess. Kinks are too complicated for that and the stakes are way too high.
Captain Awkward opens a discussion on green flags in relationships. What are the signs that this whole thing is going well?
Red flags are glaring, at least to people on the outside of a relationship; green flags are more idiosyncratic and have to do with what you want from romance and sex and togetherness. Each happy couple is happy in its own way.
