Sharing the love

Things we liked, or didn’t like, from around the internet this week.

Woot! The 52nd Down Under Feminists Carnival, hosted by Lip Magazine. Including some posts by Lady Gardeners.

Ms Naughty (site NSFW) reviews the new “romance porn”.

We probably shouldn’t read too much into this, but people with purple bedrooms have more sex.  I (Emma) couldn’t possibly comment. But my bedroom is purple.

Girl on the Net on the ethics of snogging someone you don’t really fancy.

The haters won. Goodbye for now. FTR, I think Jen is fabulous, and I am appalled by what she was subjected to, just for daring to be a woman on the internet. tigtog has more about the silencing of a wonderful woman.

And another story about a woman who dared to say no. Content note: harassment and verbal abuse. I debated whether or not to share this story.

Apparently women in politics are destroying the joint. News with Nipples has some things to say about that.

He’s got a point, though. These uppity women, you let them go to school and then they get involved in politics and then they don’t want to be hit and it’s POLITICAL CORRECTNESS GONE MAD and what’s a bloke to do? Sheesh.

And personally, I’ve (Deb) had a pissy week, culminating in me doing something which I know was the right thing for me to do, but I am now waiting rather nervously for a response, and getting stressed by it. Damn. So nothing pretty this week, because I’m just not in that space. I think I’ll go shopping.

Feel free to treat this as an open thread, for links and grumps and celebrations.

    Surprised to see that you give New Sensations credit for starting Romance Porn when their line was actually created after the much-heralded success of my Sweet Sinner “romance porn” studio with my then partner Mile High Media back in 2009. Our studio was truly the first of the genre and spawned all of the copycats. In an industry where people love to take credit for others’ innovations and ideas, you need to do your research! ~ Nica Noelle

      Nica, for a start, no-one here is giving anyone credit for anything. Secondly, in the actual article, Ms Naughty is saying that the “the sudden popularity of romance [porn]” started with New Sensations. If you still have a problem with tht attribution, I suggest you take it up with her.

          Oh, get your hand off it. Emma’s reply doesn’t require translation. Nothing written in our post linking to the article implies credit to anyone, nor does it say anything about the origins of “romance porn”.

          If you have a complaint, go take it up with the author of the post.

          I do proudly refuse to take responsibility for other people’s reading comprehension fails, yes.
