Happy almost-end-of-the-week everyone!  Just one more day til the weekend!  Here are some of my favorite posts of the past couple days!  Don’t forget to leave links to what you’ve been writing and reading!

Ableism in 30 Rock [Deeply Problematic] – I love 30 Rock and Tina Fey, but there is definitely some blatant ableism going on for the sake of laughs.

We Are Not Spared: The Shapes and Sizes Shame Game [Genderbitch] – self-shaming because of body size/shape/type is a common phenomenon and is shared by all people — cis, trans, women, men, abled, disabled… — but let’s stop it, it’s not healthy.

The Pain of House [FWD/Forward] – it’s about time that we pay attention to the pain that House goes through instead of just his methods of coping.

Freakonomics Fail [Shakesville] – the newest Freakonomics fail involves why more women don’t become high-end prostitutes.
