Good afternoon, y'all. Sorry I'm late. I'm going to have to start writing my Monday post on Sunday since I started writing with a new writing buddy. So, the good news is: I wrote 1,000 words today already. The bad news is: Feminist Monday isn't up before noon today. Heh. [sigh]
Anyway, let's get started. Today's call for action: Jen Hoffmann's Activism List. And here's today's video:
Literary/Entertainment: Time to Get Serious About Diversity and Inclusion. And how about an article about Weird as a genre that doesn't focus on just dudes? HOW I LEARNED TO LOVE THE WEIRD, FROM OCTAVIA BUTLER TO KELLY LINK. Have some political cartoons: The Daily Don. DRAMA ON FIRST BLACK WOMAN MAYOR IN DEVELOPMENT AT BRAVO FROM ‘INSECURE’ & ‘UNDERGROUND’ WRITER. And Wonder Woman joins Twitter. Wackiness ensues. Sexism and Second Chances, by Brianna Wu. The new World Fantasy Award helps push back against H.P. Lovecraft’s toxic legacy, and it is gorgeous.
General: The Violent Clashes In Berkeley Weren't 'Pro-Trump' Versus 'Anti-Trump.' They were white supremacists versus anti-white supremacists. How artificial intelligence learns to be racist. Amandla Stenberg Is a Voice for the Future and Study: We're Teaching Artificial Intelligence to Be Just as Racist and Sexist as Humans are two articles that came out around the time I was writing that article for Skiffy and Fanty, but too late for me to include them. :) I often wonder if any discussion about Feminism that doesn't make space for race is automatically erasing black women. I can feel it in myself when such discussion occur. It's like white feminism has had such a hold for so long that it's impossible to be inclusive without directly stating "this discussion includes black women." Does that make sense? In other news, you know what shouldn't be legal in the United States? Georgia state senator lets it slip: GOP gerrymandered Ossoff’s district to disenfranchise Black voters. How Navigating Femininity Impacted My Coming Out as a Trans Boy. No country for women, on death row for self-defence in the UAE.
Trigger Warning Section: All-male panel ruled on rape bill during Maryland's legislative session. ‘We’re truly sorry’: Fla. apologizes for racial injustice of 1949 ‘Groveland Four’ rape case, Abigail Breslin Explains Why She Did Not Report Her Sexual Assault and Sexual Assault: Action, Not Just Awareness.
