link love

One of us was gone this week, the other will be MIA next week (hopefully she’ll get to tune into the convention!).  But we’ll be back to usual come August.

His only demands were, “don’t shoot me or my unarmed client”  ICYMI.   I can’t even with the police.

These racist narratives MAKE NO SENSE.

On African American women’s voices and bodies

Why yes, I am sick and tired of it.  I’m also getting really sick of comedians and their lame and tired sexist narrative.  C’mon guys, stop being lazy.  (Here is Jimmy Kimmel not being lazy!  Kudos to Kimmel!)  There’s humor in the Clinton campaign that doesn’t rely on sexist tropes about powerful women.  Seriously.  That goes for you too, MSM.  Stop with the false equivalences and double standards.

Yes there is a difference.  We are better than Trump.

My jaw dropped a lot this past week.  Here was one of the first times.  Just… how… wha?

Leslie Jones twitter abuse.

Track whether or not men are talking too much.

This is also my story.  Next time they call I’m going to affect an accent and tell them they have the wrong number and I’m voting for Trump.  We will see if that works better than just asking them to take me off their damn list.  DO NOT give any political organizations your phone number EVER.

The choice is clear.

Historiann on menses and other wimmin things.   Also I’ve been debating calling up Pence‘s campaign to ask about whether it’s more immoral for me to use birth control or to allow fetuses to die given my higher chance of miscarriage.  Or you know, to just update him on the state of my cycle.

Thankfully my doctor knew what to do about granulation, but with my first baby I definitely did not mention it as early as I should have.

If you’re starting to phase out of itemizing and have 25K that you plan on spreading out in donations in the future (for however many years) apparently you can easily start your own charitable foundation with Vanguard for tax purposes.  This is AWESOME.  And we might do it next fiscal year when our tax situation will have settled and we’ll be back at full salary and no longer have any mortgage interest.

This was exactly what my DH said was the plot too!

The secret apartments of ny libraries.

Congratulations to evolving pf!

Link Love: Ants

N. K. Jemisin is an amazing author.  If you like her work as much as I do, please feel free to support her Patreon.  You can get pictures of her cat.  We love us some Seanan McGuire around here too; here’s her Patreon.  She needs a toaster.

Our friend came over and we were talking about the current political situation.  His analogy was, “Do you want ants?  This is how you get ants!”

So here are some political links sectioned off in an ants-only section, because of #1’s Outrage Fatigue.

~~~~~~~~~here be ants~~~~~~~~~

If only this had happened sooner.  Orange baby-hands idiotIn case you missed anything about the shriveled yam in a toupee.

Since it seems like a lot of people didn’t get this (politics): http://www.salon.com/2016/06/23/everyone_calm_down_the_no_fly_no_buy_bill_was_designed_to_embarrass_republicans_not_to_pass_and_its_working/  Like, don’t you think that maybe, just maybe, not being able to get on a plane is a much much bigger deal than not being able to buy an AR-15?

fact checking a subset of  Trump’s most talked about lies: http://www.salon.com/2016/06/22/fact_checking_trumps_garbage_truck_of_lies_his_speech_accusing_clinton_of_corruption_is_riddled_with_fiction_and_conspiracies

In case you don’t spend enough time thinking about gender and double standards.  Being a female politician sucks.  Being a female doctor sucks.  More on abortion.

This is why everyone has to vote.  Texas needs these.

This cartoon, which sums up #1’s attitude, is from the wonderful Sarah’s Scribbles.

More politics.  More outrage.

Let’s hate republicans together.

~~~~~~end of ants~~~~~~~~

And here are some other things not to miss!

We need better medicinePatriarchy is depressing.  “I love getting stalked,” said #NoWomanEver.

Juneteenth.  False narratives– hey, more woman-shaming.  Maybe the ants weren’t over after all.

Productivity, and an excuse to buy new notebooks.

KITTEN!

If you live in Florida, donate blood.  If you live elsewhere in the US, write your congress people.

summertime and the linking is easy

Let’s do this thing.

We very much love this Breaking Cat News (especially Elvis-kitty)

I don’t know where this storyline is going but it sure is cute (it’s getting grim as it goes on)

Let’s play Guess the Race (again)

And then we can go ARRRGH at this

and also Fcuk the po-po at this: “What’s wrong with you guys?“, indeed.  Indeed, sir.

Bonus book recommendations: Citizen: An American Lyric, by Claudia Rankine, and Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates.  Read ’em.

Getting ready in the morning sucks.  (Key problem: morning.  Ugh.)

This cartoon really captures a part of my childhood: SPACE MUSEUM.
