Weekly Mashup Stage 87

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.

Are There Safe Communitites?: "I simply want to add my voice to the beautiful cacophony of voices able to express themselves on the internet."

Fat News!: A collection of recent stories on fat hatred and body policing.

The New York Times is made of Fail: Ozy just found out that the New York Times seems to think women don't read science fiction. And Ozy is not happy.

The New Sexism: I'm not sure about it being new but its damaging alright. You can't demand that men take more child care responsibility while at the same time profiling us as child molesters in waiting. But if it helps you sleep at night keep right on thinking that children are automatically safe around women.

Highway Patrol: No Charges Against Deputy In Crash: I can't be the only person that gets pissed at this stuff right?

Hugh Ristik’s Recent Reading List (NoH): Hopefully Hugh won't be made at me for totally borrowing his roundup of posts he dropped earlier this week.

Stop The Abuse: The Men’s Project: Toy Soldier talking about The Men's Project, a non-profit counselling agency for men namely those who were abused as children.

Who Wants to Control Women’s Bodies?:"Now repeat after me: the anti-choice movement is not about men wanting to control women’s bodies. It’s about a bunch of vile freakazoids wanting to control women’s bodies." Its so sad Clarissa has to point this out.

Very much true.

Love, Peace, and Soul Forever. R.I.P. Don
