  • on “Throwing Like a Girl” (Pondering Postfeminism)
  • About a boy (eddy’s queerrantspace) “I think it’s good that you are questioning your assumptions about gender and sexuality. It’s a scary thing to do, as it involves a lot of introspection, and possibly moving away from the comfort of what the group wants you to think.”
  • Handing Back the Hate (Fat Heffalump)

    (Taking advantage of the shameless self promotion)This week on Happy Bodies:

    Why Body Positivity matters to feminists.
    Erasing the history of birth control in America: “But we have to remember that those improvements–and our access to the Pill at all–came on the backs of women who were treated as objects of clinical and not moral attention, experimented on without their consent for the benefit of certain women in the US. Devalued bodies used in the pursuit of the aims of the privileged.”

    A round-up of some foodie and food policy posts and articles that have caught my attention recently, especially a defense of organic farming as a scalable and long-term solution to the world’s hunger and energy needs.

    6 out of 10 women passing through Mexico on the way to the U.S. are raped.

    Microfinance isn’t a silver bullet, but I wish some of the women in my community had access to it, just so they could stop spending more than half their income on renting transportation.

    Happy Tuesday from Cambodia!

    I called the t-shirt guy out for his sexism, and was surprised by how much pushback I got in my comments: http://bloodandmilk.org/?p=1592
