It's Monday, and I've no coffee. Are you ready to raise that blood pressure? Let's do this thing. Links behind the cut.
Literary/Entertainment: There's a new book out about Oscar Wilde. Everyone makes a fuss over his sexual orientation, but you never hear about how he supported women's rights. In Search of Wilde's Women. I found this last week: Feminism is for Everybody by Bell Hooks which means I've more books to buy. I like her attitude so much. And last week Microsoft introduced an AI to Twitter as a teen girl and then acted surprised when she was abused. Learning from Tay's introduction. Study: Media Has One of the Biggest Gender Pay Gaps. And one of my favorite links that Dane sent to me last week involves the phrase "walk like you've been sent to kill Captain America." And Kate Elliot on Writing Women Characters Without Quotas. Genevieve Valentine on Queerness in Media. Vanessa Beecroft, Kanye West cannot offer racial amnesty. There are girl cooties on my spaceship: women writing SF. Rachel Acks: Reasons Why I will not be replying to your argument. The Cultural Appropriation Primer by K. Tempest Bradford.
General: This is what it would be like if men were treated like women in the workplace. Decoding Ivanka Trump's Unusual Campaign Role. Let me just say that the way Trump talks about his daughter really grosses me out. Silencing Tactics and You. How the Little Sisters of the Poor puts religious liberty at risk.
