In defense of the sanctimonious women's studies set || First feminist blog on the internet

Selfless Signal-Boosting Wednesday

These signal-boosting posts are a complement to our long-standing Shameless Self-Promotion Sundays, this thread is for recommending someone else‘s writings/events. Use this thread for ICYMI links and anything else you think other readers might find interesting.

Especially welcome are links to those who are blogging on issues Feministe has not recently addressed (the links can be to older posts, just something you’ve found recently relevant).  Please save the self-promotion links for this Sunday – use this thread to let Feministe readers know about the other blogs you love to read, and activist/celebration events you long to attend, especially from those on the margins of the mainstream social justice communities, who tend to not get as much exposure as they should.

Netiquette Guidelines:

  1. Effective signal boosting names the article author(s) and/or organising bodies.
  2. Include content notes/trigger warnings/NSFW alerts where needed as a courtesy to other readers.
  3. Keep this thread focussed on the linking – the idea is to make your comments on the other blogs being linked!  (seconding/thirding etc is fine, adding extra Content Notes for the benefit of other readers is a community service, linking further/related reading is always welcome, but keep it short and sweet)
  4. If you have Reasons to not leave a response on a recommended article, don’t just dump it on this thread  ~ analytical discussions about various links belong on the Open Thread or Spillover.

  1. Signal boosting HA (homeschoolers anonymous); they’re running an amazing series of “sex education” story submissions, right now. (They use trigger warnings.)

    I would also like to boost Homeschooling’s Invisible Children (be forewarned the whole site is meant to draw attention to horrible abuse and neglect hidden by unregulated homeschooling environments in the US, sometimes even death of children, so there is some very upsetting content.)

    Patheos is also something I’ve been drawn to more lately; mostly for the stories from ex-quiverfull daughters who are now mothers and figuring out how to raise children in a loving and understanding way without spanking or violence. But also if you’ve ever wondered what the process of going from “pro-life” to pro-choice looks like, there are a lot of personal accounts.

    I never realized there were so many voices speaking out against harmful upbringing practices in conservative communities and I really hope this new generation of now-adults can enact change in their communities and undo some of the damage some harmful practices have done.
