Things we liked, or didn’t like, from around the internet this week.
Ally’s brilliant column on Equality. And celery. Several of The Lady Gardeners also hate celery.
The greatest typo ever.
From British rugby writer Stephen Jones: the best coach that New Zealand has ever produced. H/T: Ele, at HomePaddock
Following up on Clarisse Thorn’s wonderful post about what she wished she had been told in sex education, which we linked to last week, AnnaJCook at The Pursuit of Harpyness writes about what’s missing from sex education. If you’re not already reading The Pursuit of Harpyness, may I (Deb) recommend it? It’s one of my favourites of the big North American feminist blogs.
Rebecca Watson of SkepChick fame dared to suggest, very briefly, that it wasn’t appropriate for an unknown man to try to chat her up in the elevator at 2am in the morning. ElevatorGate ensued, in which some members of the sceptical and / or atheist community revealed just how much they think that women should shut up and get into the kitchen. The bile has carried on, and on, and on. Rebecca has finally written about the hate that has been coming her way: Mom, don’t read this.
Via Twitter, do feminists have better sex? (Tallulah says yes! Or, last night they did, at least.)
Why some women are wary of talking/writing/participating in sport.
