It's time again! We're rounding up some of the most interesting things we read this week in another edition of On Our Radar!

  • Muslimah Media Watch's Ayaan Hassan introduces us to the latest character from the Marvel Comics Universe: Faiza Hussain, a British Muslim super heroine!
  • SKM ponders why Google didn't have a doodle to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the 19th Ammendment on Shakesville.
  • One for the bookmarks: our fabulous TelevIsm blogger RMJ offers a great primer on cis, cissupremacy, and cissexism on Deeply Problematic.
  • The title says it all: Sandip Roy writes on "Why Eat, Pray, Love Makes Me Want to Gag" on Alternet.
  • Gwen Sharp uses a karate studio's rejected advertisement featuring the gender policing of a young boy as a springboard to discuss the murky world of "unofficial/unreleased ad campaigns" on Sociological Images.
  • Gebe Martinez, Ann Garcia, and Jessica Arons look at the "birthright citizenship debate" as a "thinly veiled attack on immigrant mohers" at the Center for American Progress. Take a look at Michelle Chen's piece on Colorlines for more about the debate.
  • Amy Larocca profiles figure skater Johnny Weir for New York Magazine.
  • Spoiler Alert: Carrie Polansky reviews the gender politics of the new film Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World on Gender Across Borders.

Adam McKay is one of a million: a writer and director who can put together a great trailer. Too bad the feature presentation of <a href="http://feministreview.blogspot.com/2010/08/other-guys.html">The Other Guys</a> is so long and boring that it chokes on its own machismo.
