Like the links — Love, even!

Links… like sausage but not as pork-y.

At last, the free market provides a solution for men demanding that feminism be explained to them, for reasonable rates!

let’s remember intersectionality.

Another job that #1 should get: writing up reports with obvious solutions that are already being implemented because you didn’t do any real research.

Timeline of incidents

There’s no end in sight to being a tech feminist killjoy.

arrgh patriarchy.  Women can’t win!  Men need to change the rules of the game

Hey look, a kitchen!

Stupid d00dbros who hate women: keeps on going, and going, and going…

Grumpeteers, what cat videos calm your rage today?

Let’s Get This Link-Love Started!

While #2’s away, #1 will play with categories…

Depressing and rage-inducing patriarchy news…

Affordable birth control is great, but SUCH a hassle to get.

“Vague rules that are applied in a haphazard fashion tend to increase community tension,” NO SHIT, Ferguson.

I’m shocked that it took so long for majority approval of interracial marriage.  Goddamn, racism.
This is the awfulest thing ever: that foster kid will never feel at home there, ever.  (FCUK THAT NEIGHBOR)

This is an important post.

Patriarchy, you are The Worst.

Also, I learned a new word today that I wish I didn’t have to know.

Not actually a post from The Onion!


Random links:

This has been all over the web: correlation is not causation.

#1 should apply for this job.

forgot to link love this last week:

sad news: Zilpha Keatley Snyder died.  We love her books.


Awesome things!

this is the funniest thing ever: his name is Figaro Newton!!!


And something that is great:

I find the above video hilarious.

#1 lives in paradise and #2’s giving a fancy invited talk, but some weeks the world’s too much.  I have GOT to stop reading news stores!  Cheer us up in the comments, Grumpeteers!

this is all so true

57 sick sad books a la Daria

How college works.

Atul Gawande writes *fascinating* things.  (Note:  from 2008, the one about phantom limbs if you, like #2, hang on Atul Gawande’s every word)

Regarding #teamharpy and sexual harassment

Dear White Racists

Lousy song messages.  (We also note that Same Love starts out with what’s essentially, “I’m not gay or nuthin’, but…” so it’s also guilty of the same stuff the article author is complaining about with body image.)

Why forcing girls to change their clothing to match some arbitrary dress-code is sexist.

Confidence is not the cure for workplace bias.

This is depressing to me.  I don’t understand other people’s lives at all.  I would rather be a single parent.

Ferguson demands high fees to turn over city files.

The baby’s alarm keeps going off.

I couldn’t finish reading this story because of the heavy triggers [warning], but it is horrific.  Mothers whose children are abused get longer sentences than the fathers who actually do the abuse.

My father is doing this.

memo to self to keep this in mind

This is cool.  I totes want to go into DC1’s computer class and do it.

fascinating!  I wonder if DC2’s gut is different than DC1’s because of the lack of wheat… (and I eat less wheat than the rest of the family)

hey look

I don’t know if we link-loved this result before, but I guess it’s worth repeating

An evaluation of course evaluations.

butt horn or but thorn?  You decide.

Ok, I’m just going to ignore the huge amount of links that #2 sent me about all the interesting fun cool delicious things within walking distance or a short light rail ride.  Because you all don’t want to read and feel jealous either.

This is what a feminist looks like.

xykademiqz nails it again.

I think I would like to be a book butler, assuming the pay was good.

#2 is in a car.  Driving to PARADISE.  #1 is probably in a car too, but just because it’s the weekend to visit the city, which is sadly not in paradise.

It all comes tumbling down for Mutant Supermodel.

Wife beating is not a private matter, it is a felony.

Roxanne Gay is a really good writer.

‘Originally titled, “Daddy’s Penis is Very Small,” this rousing and light-hearted look at a white family’s irrational yet crippling fear of blacks and latinos is a wonderful primer for children of all ages.’

Not sure how to feel about this one.  I think in the end though, he didn’t give the gift of divorce, his dad did.

Does gifted education work, and for who?

My undergrad had this policy.

Long workweeks and strange hours.

It’s the American Way.

Coffee quotes.

Black cowboys– prevalent but widely forgotten. Youtube has a bunch of Herb Jeffries who has a beautiful tenor.

Link us Your Love

Link love: the moving craziness edition, part 1. Links are a mess because of that and because #2 is swamped at work and has had all sorts of after work hours “fun” work obligations which have been causing her literal heartburn.  (Is it the catering?  stress?  too much sitting at the computer? She doesn’t know but she’d sure like to find out by not having obligations or heartburn!)

Or else possibly This Week in Patriarchy.  Unfortunately that’s like every week.

file under argh-of-the-day:
so much very horrible news

This is so true

#1 hates riding bicycles but these make good points:

This has been all over the news, but it’s funny:
 Economics links ahoy!

sometimes the economist is embarrassing .  Also, it’s really weird watching non-economists discuss Time on the Cross because it seems to be taught differently outside of economics.  In Economic History classes the main focus is that slavery was profitable (in one of my classes it was tied with literature on how serfdom was the only way to keep people in Russia from fleeing to Germany, and other forms of slavery and intimidation and horror were used to keep people working when they had better outside options if they could just leave, which they couldn’t).  This profitability argument is in contrast to the “it would have gone away by itself” argument that you sometimes hear crop up.  It wouldn’t have gone away by itself.  Then after slavery was over, they replaced that profitability with prison chain-gangs.  People say that Time on the Cross makes the argument that slaves had it better under slavery, but the focus that I remember was that slavery was awful for all of the reasons that slavery is awful, and instead of getting 40 acres and a mule and government representation as promised and as would have made a big positive difference in the lives of blacks, the South did its best to use terror to create a pseudo-slavery of share-cropping.  Slavery wasn’t “better” because it was a good thing, but share-cropping was almost as bad.  It was a failure of the government to fully reparate and protect the former slaves that lead to bad outcomes post-slavery.  Then it’s tied to Race and Schooling in the South by Bob Margo, which explains the huge economic inequalities caused by segregation.  So Time on the Cross as I learned it (in multiple classes, from different schools, including one from a Fogel student) was really an argument for Affirmative Action.
