Tuesday Link Love

Posted on: October 6, 2009

As usual, here are some of my favorite posts from the past couple days.  Don’t forget to leave links to what you have been writing/reading in the comments!

Feminism that doesn’t advance women is no feminism at all. [Zero at the Bone] – Chally’s response to Feministing’s ableist language.

What if my gaze mattered? On the continuing dominance of the white-male-hetero-gaze and how it’s infiltrating the “feminine” world of Twilight [Professor What If…?] – “All the discussion of making the New Moon film friendlier to male audiences has my feminist panties in a bunch. Why must the Twilight films court the male demographic?”

Sexism Watch: The Jay Leno Show- Where are the Women Writers? [Women & Hollywood] – I was kind of surprised (but kind of not) to find out that the Jay Leno Show and Conan O’Brien don’t have any women writers.

New “Old Navy” Commercials Offend…Just About Everyone [Womanist Musings] – they’re not only creepy, but offensive.

And general ableism, really. Thanks for the link!
