Things we liked, or didn’t like, from around the internet this week:
Via Atheist Pinko Sluts, a refreshingly sane article on the myth of sex addiction:
In thirty-one years as a sex therapist, marriage counselor, and psychotherapist, I’ve never seen sex addiction. I’ve heard about virtually every sexual variation, obsession, fantasy, trauma, and involvement with sex workers, but I’ve never seen sex addiction.
From Penguin Unearthed, The efficient frontier of shoes
All bodies are beautiful. Right?
Haters gonna hate. Here’s how not to care.
On gendered language and talking about sexual violence.
Fat acceptance and the problem of health.
In the Sydney Morning Herald today: The great sex swindle: “There is little evidence of real differences between the male and female brains…”
Something extraordinary which a friend of Deb’s shared on Facebook – a murmuration of starlings.
‘Though perhaps it wouldn’t seem quite so beautiful if it didn’t have Pachelbel’s Canon playing in the background. What if it had creepy music from a horror movie instead?
And that’s it from me (Deb). I’m signing off from The Lady Garden, for work related reasons. Many thanks for Emma and Tallulah and Coley for their company: I’ve loved working with you. Also drinking with you from time to time. Ka kite ano.
