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.
