Happy first week of a new decade, y’all! Here’s what we’ve been reading at Bitch HQ as we dive into the 20-teens.
- Gender Focus has up a nice list of their favorite things of 2010. Like an NPR Top Ten list, but with more True Blood and trans rights!
- Feminists With Disabilities (FWD) announced that it has ceased production, and will be maintained as an archive and blogroll site. Big love, FWD. We’ll miss you!
- Racialicious points out some…er…problems with the new Grouplove music video. Up and coming band? Yes. Lynching, warpaint, and headdresses? Not so much.
- Yesterday was Nancy Pelosi’s last day as Speaker of the House, and Ms. has a reminder to her replacement John Boehner that she’s still on the feminist-agenda clock.
- Taking a page from Kelsey’s book, Sociological Images has a round-up of advertising that plays directly to close-minded, normative masculinity as a marketing tool for men.
- Surprise! Teenagers are actually fabulous people that care about things! F Bomb wrote about “Teens and Technology,” and how social media might not actually be the death of all that is good and proactive in the world. Rock on, F Bomb!
