This Week in Blogs: October 4 – 10

Posted on: October 11, 2009

I hope everyone has had a good week.  As always, this post features some of my favorite posts from the past couple days as well as some of my favorite posts from the week that were already featured in Tuesday or Thursday‘s link love posts.  Don’t forget to leave links to what you have been writing/reading in the comments!

New Link Love

Cis [this ain’t livin’] – a definition and examination of the word ‘cis.’

Are You There, God? It’s Me, Miley: On Privacy, Teen Sexuality, and the Miley Cyrus Twitter [Bitch Blogs] – who’s a real teen – Miley Cyrus or Taylor Swift?  I may not agree with this post, but it’s a good read.  And you have to see this rap video that Miley made…it makes me laugh every time:

Moore illuminate evil of a corrupt system [Womanist Musings] – a look at Michael Moore’s new movie Capitalism: A Love Story.

An Education: “mini review” [Entertainment Realm] – Nick Hornby can write about women!

Weekly Link Love

Feminism that doesn’t advance women is no feminism at all [Zero at the Bone] – Chally examines the use of ableist language.

Another Way Language Excludes People [Small Strokes] – feminists often think about how the language that they use is exclusionary. But the use of English in relation to non-English speakers is not often commented on with the same kind of concern.

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?”
