Exciting Readings from around the TubesSo I'm a bit tired this morning after spending six or seven hours baking in the sun yesterday watching a whole lot of other people run 26 miles. Considering that I wasn't running, I sure forgot how much effort it is to stand around, clap a bunch, eat hot dogs, and wander up and down Beacon Street. My feet were killing me.
So, with that being the case, here are a couple of other interesting things rolling around the world of the internets that I think folks should check out:
Over at the Curvature, Cara has a post about rape apologism in Australia.
Thomas at the Yes Means Yes blog has a bunch of great posts up: first, some thoughts on the Big Ben case. Also, an awesome and lengthy post on essentialism.
Cara at Feministe has some thoughts on sexual assault in Native communities.
At Sociological Images: an idea of what male objectification might look like.
An older post, but I just discovered this site a couple of days ago. Purtek wrote at the Hathor Legacy the post I tried to write last week. Why rape is different from other types of violence. Also, Jennifer Kesler at the same site has a great post on how to prevent rape.
Finally, to make the day a little more fun than a non-stop miseryfest, the Boston Breakers had their first home game of the 2010 season this Sunday (a 1-1 tie with Philadelphia). The next game is April 25th at 6 pm, and you can catch it on the Fox Soccer Channel if you've got it. Go Breakers!
