Here it is! Your weekly mix of feminist internets:
No Homophobes is a website that tracks the use of abusive anti-LGBQT slurs like ‘faggot’ and ‘dyke’ on Twitter.
Mindy Kaling (from The Office and The Mindy Project) called out the way journalists insult her by thinking that a confident woman of colour who is not skinny is somehow abnormal in our world. Via Upworthy and United in Colour (Black Feminist Club).
Carina Kolodny’s Open Letter to Parents of U.S. Teenagers is brilliant in the way that it lists all the ways that by not teaching our kids how to be active in ending rape culture we are supporting rape culture. Via Jackson Katz.
Have you always been white? How do you know that you are white? Naima Lowe asks these questions in her book “39 Questions For White People” to create a discussion about white privilege. Via Colorlines.
The deceptively simple text asks complex questions about race and accountability. Each page of this limited edition, forty-page, loose-leaf book, was hand inked and hand typed at a small collectively run print shop in Olympia, WA. This work started as an experiment based in my curiosity about how whiteness is framed and understood by white people. The work of creating the book became an exercise in turning the emotional labor of racism into tangible physical labor. I was able to turn all that pain into an object, which is incredibly strange, but also incredibly freeing.
