Signal Boosting: Help these young foodies get published!
Signal Boosting: AIRC is hosting a food drive for Native Elder Nutrition Centers. In these tough times, it’s the most vulnerable populations that have been hit the hardest, so if you can please donate so that these elders don’t go hungry. From the Chairman:
It costs money to deliver food to extremely remote reservation communities where many hungry Native Elders and children live! And right now we just need to make sure we can meet the increasing requests of our food partners!
No Native Elder should be forced to choose between food and medicine … or between feeding her grandchild and feeding herself. Not when you and I can help!
I have never heard of this parent trigger law (no surprise there) but the idea behind it is pretty intriguing, and hopefully worth a discussion. Though at this point I know enough of education politics in US to say that better funding and better conditions for teachers would eliminate half of the problems, at least parents have now a little power.
This is an IGN video, part of some contest they were doing, I don’t even know. But the…game topic chosen in all seriousness is misogynistic icky as hell.
Hey, I just thought you’d like to know there’s been an update to the Bioware saga. I like to call it, “The Return of Straight Male Gamer.” Couldn’t get through the dreck? Neither could I. But from what I gather, it can be summed up thusly: “Arise, my brothers and sisters in homobigotry! For too long our voices have been silenced by the evil forces of social justice and tolerance. But to that I say NAY! Today, we take a stand against all that oppresses us. No more will we silently endure this atrocity, holding back our opinions and thoughts in fear of judgement. Today, we break the shackles that have bound us for far too long. We stand together in solidarity and strength. We are not alone. Say it with me, my brothers and sisters. HOMOS ARE ICKY AND GROSS!!!”
This blog that reported it is kickass too, btw.
ScarJo and others stand up in support of Planned Parenthood.
I thought you might enjoy this post about the term “Facebook-rape”: It simplifies the issues around language use and rape culture, but I wanted to make a strong point to friends who are not engaged with feminism.

Veiling: French gov’t asserts its right to see your body.
Universities are timid about stopping sexual assault, so the assaulted are more likely to transfer to another school than are the assailants, and women on campus still have a better chance of being raped than do women elsewhere. Oh, and don’t read the comments.
Criticizing the critics: fandom’s anti-feminist response to critical analysis.
Here’s a neat law write-up. I… can’t get more specific because besides “Oh SNAP!” I have nothing to say.
Hey, Hathor readers! Let’s watch a show together! Starting this Sunday, we’ll be posting a discussion starter every week for an episode of Firefly– watch along with us and take a look at this series from a critical standpoint. Most of us will be watching for the umpteenth time, but viewers who’ve never seen the series before are more than welcome to join the discussion. Firefly is available via Netflix streaming, and on Hulu, for those in the US, as well as on DVD and Blu-ray.
We’ll be watching other shows together soon, so keep an eye out even if Firefly isn’t to your taste!
