Weekly Mashup Stage 100

Got a link you want to share?
Want to spark some discussion?
Need a place to talk about something that wouldn't be welcome else where?
Then come over to the Ethecofem Forums!!!

This is my Weekly Mashup. You know the drill. Feel free to treat it like an Open Thread.

Despite tax breaks, some NC hospitals deny care to poor: I guess that is how we manage to have some of the best hospitals in the country here.

Experimental AIDS Therapy May Be Beginning Of The End: Could gene therapy eliminate AIDS once and for all?

Colorado boy, 6, suspended for sexual harassment: Seriously how many times is this that a boy (and it seems to be mostly if not only boys) has been suspended for something minor?

Fathers the central figure in family brand campaigns: Looks like marketing agencies in the UK are coming around to the idea that it might be good to advertise family brands to dads.

The Life of Julia: A composite cradle to grave imagining of a woman and how her life would be helped by Obama and hurt by Romney.

Here's the entire set!

One of the UK's biggest soaps has a male-victim DV storyline...: Unfortunately people from the US can't view the video. But I do like the idea that people are talking about female against male DV on a larger stage.

Wife of NC State Senator says Amendment One is necessary ‘to protect the Caucasian race’

Woman accused of severing man's penis in fatal stabbing at Dallas motel: I can't wait to hear people saying he deserved it or for people to start making jokes about it...

London sperm bank under investigation after couple has baby from different race: So let me get this straight. If a woman commits paternity fraud people trip over themselves to declare that the DNA doesn't matter but if a sperm bank screws up its "devastation"?

State Patrol "looking into" Occupy drug allegations; Mpls police claim no involvement: Police giving Occupy protesters drugs?

MISOGYNY –Toxic Femininity: Ginkgo on some of the different types of toxic femininity.

Canadian university contemplates Men's Centre.: Why is it that whenever someone tries to bring up something for men its often women and feminists that are the first ones to presume that men don't need their spaces? You would think that people who are supposedly all about equality for all people would recognize that the life of men is not peachy keen and would not try to say that men's issues don't matter because women have it worse... (Does Simon Fraser University Need a Men's Centre?)

Activists memorialize North Carolina workers killed on the job: A moment to remember the 83 workers killed on the job in NC in 2011.

Hinckley man allegedly paid undercover cop to kidnap his ex-girlfriend, turn her into sex slave: Oh yeah this clown needs to go away to that special place in hell where women that hire people to kill their husbands are sent.

Is it possible to be an MRA without being a Feminist?: Interesting question.

Because I just love coming out of left field with something weird sometimes.

Well now that I've gotten to Stage 100 I think I want to start doing something other than just numbering for these Weekly Mashups. Oh I'm sure I'll come up with something.
