What I’m Reading Since I’m Not Writing January 6, 2005 Lauren Bakerina writes an amazingly entertaining ode to eggs. The incredible, edible kind. My Life As Nothing – On growing up Atheist, or rather, as nothing at all. The moral politics of “Meet the Fockers.” Framing of an article often tells us more about the author and his or her institution than the article itself. This one in particular deals with father’s rights groups, Christian groups, and one fundamentalist nutjob who believed God sent him a message to circumcise his son in the bathroom with a steak knife. Apparently LiveJournalers make fun of us non-LJ writers. That’s good because we’re making fun of them too. Apophenia writes on the acquisition of LiveJournal by Six Apart. The Extrapolation Factor: Shelley at Burnigbird takes issue with “people behaving badly” in marriage laid at the feet of one gender. An insightful and provocative post. Equally provocative is this post by Dru Blood on parenting, and those of us parents who proclaim we don’t want to be like THOSE parents (you know the ones) in response to several dicussions about parenting on other blogs.
