Weekly Mashup Stage 75

In an effort to build up the Ethecofem community into a place where any walk of life will feel welcome to come and discuss things we are looking for another regular contributor, preferably of the female persuasion to balance things out a bit, but anyone interested is welcome. We like a variety of viewpoints, experiences, and perspectives. And as always April is on the eternal lookout for guest bloggers as well. If you're interested drop a line at ethecofem[at]gmail[dot]com.

Also feel free to treat this as an Open Thread.

I don't have a lot this week on a count of being in the hospital with the dad all week.

Old Fashioned 'Pirates' Steal 6,000 Copies Of The New Call Of Duty Game: Because that's how REAL pirates roll kid.

If it had been a woman…: You'd think people would be over this "women are morally superior to men" stuff by now...

NC Justice for Sterilization Victims Foundation: "Gov. Bev Perdue established the N.C. Justice for Sterilization Victims Foundation. In the 2009-2010 legislative session, the North Carolina General Assembly provided funding for the Foundation to begin planning to carry out its mission to provide justice and compensate victims who were forcibly sterilized by the State of North Carolina. The Foundation will function as a clearinghouse to assist victims of the N.C. Eugenics Board program. Foundation staff also supports the Governor’s Task Force to Determine the Method of Compensation for Victims of North Carolina’s Eugenics Board."

Boy thought eight years of sexual abuse by sister ‘was normal’: A display of how damaging sexual abuse can be to a child when the abuse starts are a young age.

I know I'm not the only one that feels this way.

Two Items: Metalwala Update; Virginia to Seize Assets of Child Abductors: For as many episodes of Law and Order I've seen that are "ripped from the headlines" I'm at a bit of a loss to see it happen in reverse.

Black Women of Playboy: Eat your heart out Lindsay Lohan: Yep.

APNewsBreak: Inmates with mental illness neglected: "Years of budget cuts, hiring freezes and high turnover led to staffing shortages in critical jobs, especially nurses and doctors. Staff failed to maintain up-to date records, track medications or respond to calls for medical help."

Something for the anime fans.

Where did my comment go? It was polite. No disagreement, even.

Sorry about that Daisy.

I have moderation on and it seems the only option for moderation is that comments are no published until I go in and either publish (or delete) them.

So if you put up a comment and it doesn't show immediately its because its in the moderation queue awaiting approval.
