A Note About My Feminism
For later expansion: My feminism is not just for healthy cisgendered middle-class white women. My feminism is for people with disabilities, people of color, people of any class status, and in fact people of any gender. My feminism is, as they say, the radical belief that women are people. All women.

I just kinda get a bug up my nose looking at the history of the movement, and sometimes just like to state baldly that that ain't me. There you go.

BARCC Blog
I've yet to decide what I'm writing about tomorrow. Any requests?

Explo
If you have an item to offer for auction, e-mail me at shadesong AT gmail.com with the subject "Explo!" and a photo and description of your item; if your item is custom, send a pic of examples of what it might look like. Thank you so much!

The scale for story alteration:
$10: object of your choice.
$25: character of your choice.
$50: major plot twist.
More than $50: Pitch me something. We can discuss.

That's $10 each object, et cetera. So two people would be $50, and three objects would be $30.

Link Soup
* Article about Nnedi Okorafor by our karnythia!
* tithenai wants you to help kickstart a retelling of "The Armless Maiden" with Titania in Cornwall.
* United Airlines treats disabled customers like shit.

Daily Science
Observations with Subaru Telescope's Prime Focus Camera (Suprime-Cam) have revealed an extended structure of the spiral galaxy Messier 81 (M81) that may hold a key to understanding the formation of galaxies.

Plans
Work, then a high-school workshop about respecting boundaries. Hooome. Not going to Diesel tonight, because I'll need a nap (4am? WTH) and need to pack for tomorrow, when I'll be leaving for Vermont straight from work. (They finalized the schedule; I'm taking "Using Art to Change our Narratives" in that third slot.) (If I had a ride, I could do Diesel, I guess? But it's not Mark's week.)

Just listen to anyone at all go off about the decision of the woman to drop her rape case against Ben Roethlisberger. All the BARCC fodder you need. *sigh* I'll let you do your own reading if you want to pursue it, rather than bias you with the aspects that got up my nose this morning.

There's the usual slew of "but it's every teen's fantasy" crap in response to the latest case of a teacher raping one of her students: http://www.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/04/12/florida.teacher.student.sex/index.html?hpt=T2 (warning: the comments there are a cesspool of idiocy).

For some reason, I saw this, and was reminded of Elayna: http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/2348.html

You can put 'em in the PayPal notes field; will get a button up tomorrow. :)
