Weekly Mashup Stage 90

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.

Woman Gets 6-Months Home Arrest for Killing Boyfriend: So what was that about only conventionally attractive women being able to get away with light slaps on the wrist for major crimes?

Catholic Church’s Pedophilia Investigator Jailed For Pedophilia: Someone should come up with a word for this...

Teachable Moment on Marginalized Male Victims: "Many commentators, politicians and advocacy groups tend to cast victimization with a homosexual or feminine identity under the guise of advancing equality and social justice. While profitable and politically expedient, such projections not only marginalize the significant number of heterosexual male victims of violence, neglect and abuse, but also recast them as victimizers.">

Glossary Added: I learned that the words "mangina" and "misandry" were invented by Men's Rights Activists. Yeah not "brought to popularity" or "run into the ground" but invented. I guess all those times I heard "mangina" in movies means the writers were looking to MRAs and misandry apparently was never a word until MRAs came up with it. I know right?

Treating the Hate: Yes I am shamelessly plugging a post of mine that was submitted to The Good Men Project earlier this week.

Long Life.

We are still heading for Self Destruction: It would seem that after taking Renee up on her good faith when she invited me to post on her blog I needed to be reminded that men are not dehumanized when we embrace destructive concepts of male sexuality...

A place for male victims to talk: It would seem that Hope for Men is gaining ground in its efforts to assist male victims of abuse. (via Toy Soldier)

Inspiration, Day Five: Some tips on keeping the juices flowing when writing.

‘Am I Ugly’ Videos Spark Disturbing YouTube Trend: Yes its a Youtube trend but I think this is just the latest manifestation of an age old issue of being too caught up in what others think about them.

Girl Forced To Run For Three Hours Dies, Two Charged In Case: I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

I like.

Take it easy people!
