Lots of stuff this week. I have a new method of keeping track of the links I want to highlight. Plus, I was under the weather and had a lot of catch up reading to do.
The Red Queen continues her series on the Inner Third World, w/ Reproduction on how a woman’s right to have children and to choice is viewed differently based on their race.
Natalia Antonova discusses why the concept of Purity at All Costs is not something we should embrace. Pretty powerful.
Shark-Fu is doing a once a week spot at Feministing, and I think this may make their blog worth reading for me again. This week she tells us what she would do if she had a chance to talk to the Veep candidates when they come to Saint Louis.
William K. Wolfrum reveals that Jesus has quit Christianity after taking one look at the Republican platform.
Ojibway Migisi Bineshii talks a little about her Ojibway Heritage.
When I tell people I have Ojibway heritage they often ask where the Ojibway are from. If I am in Michigan I have to inform people that they are from right here. I have to change consciousness around towns and cities being “founded” in 1701 or 1844 and tell them that the Ojibway have been here long before that.
It makes me reflect upon my own Ojibway heritage, and how it affects the facets of my daily life, from how I raise my child to how it influences my Paganism.
Love me some Kate Harding. Didn’t you know beating genetics is as simple as exercising only 3 to 4 hours a day? How exciting!
Also from Pam Spaulding, the Soulforce Equality Ride, and why we need it (see the included picture. If you have to ask…)
I agree w/ Some Watery Tart about Matt Damon. I would add one though, so it can be an odd number. I like odd numbers.
And Tobes gives us an update on a ND gang rape victim.
I know it’s a long list, but there is always so much good stuff out there!
