Welcome to Monday ~ 25 February 2013

image by isbambiHappy Monday dear feminausts! How are you all? I’m finally removing all of the boxes from my new house. It’s a nice, cathartic feeling. However, I’m currently at my parents house using their internet – it takes WEEKS, AND WEEKS to get internet connected. Argh, losers. Anyway, the upside is that my parents’ fridge is always full.

On to the links!

She Who Must Not Be Named Award

Anne Summers: Why Only Half of Us Can Have It All.  I love Anne Summers’ writing because she always compares our current situations with what the status quo was when she got into the feminist movement. And, it’s pretty damn depressing at the moment.

blue milk congratulates Steve Biddulph (author of How to Raise Boys and How to Raise Girls) on bringing it to our attention that maybe – just maybe – the world isn’t friendly to girls, and perhaps we should find ways to change that. Good one Steve, welcome to feminism.

Misconceptions

Love this Quote of the Day from Hoyden About Town, talks about pinkification and evolution.

Everyday Feminism talks about sex, pornography and lesbianism: Fantasy vs. Reality: Lesbian Sex in Pornography

The power of words; can a bisexual, African-American, woman use the word faggot? or nigger?
