Pile of Links, v. 1.0

I always try to build a library of resources and link-lovin’ for the generations that come thereafter. At least until we hit the critical mass point and then society will collapse, leaving humans basically stranded in a wasteland created by capitalism, carnism, and miscellaneous fuckuppery. Cheers! Also keep in mind the About page—this entire blog has a gigantic trigger-warning slapped all over it. The same follows for many of the links.

From Vegan Skeptic: Being Vegan is worse for the environment?

Via Vegan Feminist Agitator we have Another Disgruntled Alphabet for Vegans… And how!

Then there’s Feminism 101: Helpful Hints for Dudes, Part 3, where Time-Machine goes over rape jokes and why they are not acceptable.

Gwen Sharp over at Sociological Images provides a downright frightening example of whitewashing, sizewashing and basically pornwashing women: Gender, Race, and Virtual Model Options.

A guest post on Vegan Salt briefly gets at the difference between “doing all you can” and doing something: Why I’m Vegan, or, Why I’m Not Necessarily a Good Person, or, Making a Deal With the Devil: How to Get More Than a Pair of Socks in Exchange for Your Soul. (Personally, I don’t think the title is long enough.)

Unpopular Vegan Essays has up a post that isn’t easily summarized called On Ex-Vegans.

Just a blog mention this time: Raw on $10 a Day (or Less!) proves that you can have a satisfying, cheap, not-devoid-of-fat-by-any-means raw diet… with pictures!

Bob Caesa has put up a guest post entitled Monsanto: The evil corporation in your refrigerator at Vegan Princess.

Bryanna Clark Grogan has an interesting webpage I’ve been perusing about the soy scare. Does Susan Fallon really believe that you can’t even get pregnant while on a vegan diet… ? ‘Cause, uh, I think the “sleep eating” accusation is wearing a little thin now.

And before I move on to another topic, let’s also cover More Anti-Vegan Sentiment at The Veg Blog about the “vegan” parents who starved their baby to death by ignoring the little reminder at the bottom of the soymilk carton that it cannot be used as infant formula.

Media Girl is a fantastic blog I just found, and I’m reading through currently. Here’s one I really like: Cold-blooded Roe calculus. Also, have another goddamn link list to read through.

I also just found The Hand Mirror, an aussie feminist blog. Go read The minister for police and upholding rape culture.

Over at Maggie Hays’s old blog (new one here) there’s an excellent post by the name of Breaking the Chains of Patriarchy: A Short Story on Resistance to Masochism.

Feminist Students United! talks about rape culture, dismissal, and assorted fuckuppery in This is what rape culture looks like: an explanation.

This article from The Root about Rosa Parks is rather beautiful: Rosa Parks Had a Radical Side: Championing the Rights of Rape Victims. I like my heroes expansive.

And, finally in this meandering list of links, an old post from Angry for a Reason is entitled Rape and Survival.

Maybe not so much a carnival as it is a maze, but definitely go check these things out.

Valentine’s Link-Encrusted Roundup

I don’t feel like writing anything about Valentines. Here, have some posts so you can read other people doing it better and more enthusiastically than I would.

We got some crazy retro valentines over at Sociological Images, proving that “loving violence” has a long-ass history in the U.S.: Shifting Cultural Sensibilities and Valentine’s Pleas.

Andrea Grimes writes in at Heartless Doll about an article in the Weekly Standard about how y’all are just giant hobags. Feminism has turned women into giant sluts—and we love every minute of it!

I just found this blog, and while it seems to be abandoned, there are still some damn good posts on it. Go read up on SDS Womyn’s Caucus Blog.

Elizabeth Carnell’s poem (poem, right?) entitled Steinem finds ‘truth’ behind Valentine’s Day love fools is sooo romantic.

On the lulzy not-related-to-Valentine’s side, I’ve found the manual that the sex pox fun-fems have been using—from the Onion, no less! How Can I Use Feminism To My Advantage?

On the other hand, Sofia Quintero has written a thought-provoking article on The Spirit of Love and Resistence Behind St. Valentine’s Day. I’m not entirely sure if that negates the whole “marriage is a transfer of breeding property” thing, though.

And let’s not forget Sarah Haskin’s Target Women, because here she is talking about… CHOCOLATE!!!!!!!!1

(IMO, carob rocks way harder. Mmm, tasty.)

Oh, and one last thing. Get on your lollerskates, kids, because we’re goin’ for a ride! Valentine’s Day Boycott Led By Male Empowerment Author. I’ll let you read it on your own, but I just want to take on one little thing:

What’s the male version of feminism? Masculism? Manism?

That would be, uh, feminism, good sir.
