Some links and fun videos for ‘ya. Hope everyone enjoyed their Sunday!
The Homophobia Keeper – Homophobia in literature (particularly in sci fi and fantasy)
deviance, rape culture, and the courtroom – In cases where one is accused of rape, how does the presumption of innocence shape public perception differently than in other crimes?
The Complexity of Fluid Dynamics in Slow Motion – Warning! Objectification of women! (I don’t like myself for liking that link as much as I do…)
Schrodinger’s Rapist – I really like this post, and have used the concept to explain to some of my male friends how I view men differently now that I’ve transitioned, and am more aware of presenting myself as a woman.
Now for a funny video. She’s not actually bad looking to begin with, which is frustrating, but it’s still amusing.
Super Heroes vs the Westboro Baptist Church – I heard me some geeks!
Low cost health care in Chicago – Already used it to save about $20/month on my meds! Awesometastic!
NYT Ethicist’s dangerous advise on outing “transgendered” people – BOOO!!! (But go Feministing) (Also at Dating and “Disclosure”)
I’ve never been super successful at link shares here at The Thang Blog, but I’ll still give it a try. What fun things have you been reading or writing this week? (Or ever. I don’t do this consistently, so lets open it up!)
