What I’m reading this week (version 10.03.11)

A bit random this week – which probably tells you something about this week!


Hugo Schwyzer on sex ed [http://hugoschwyzer.net/2011/03/08/against-shame-against-douthat-for-pleasure-based-sex-ed/] and mens’ rights  [http://goodmenproject.com/ethics-values/how-the-mens-rights-activists-get-feminism-wrong/]

PZ Myers on the dangers of feline evolution [http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2011/03/be_afraid_be_very_afraid.php] – not entirely serious!

The Ultimate Goth Guide [http://ultimategothguide.blogspot.com/] – which also recommends one of my favourite blogs, Gothic Charm School

Deborah Merriam at Sustainable Slow Stylish on her epic wardrobe purge [http://sustainableslow.blogspot.com/2011/03/are-you-wardrobese-my-wardrobe-purge.html]

And my friend Sylvia, aka Ziva, has just started her new tribal belly dance blog [http://zivadoestricks.wordpress.com/]

See, I told you it was random!


Continuing to read Ecofeminsm and the Sacred – I want my own copy!   So much of this resonates with me and sounds like my own spirituality and general approach to life –  it’s nice to know some other people think that way too.  Other parts are challenging me about some of my own assumptions and points of view in a good way – a ‘making me think’ way.

  1. Recently I wrote a blog entry offering a leftist critique of the ideology of “Green” environmentalism, deep ecology, eco-feminism, and lifestyle politics in general (veganism, “dumpster diving,” “buying organic,” “locavorism,” etc.). I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on the matter and any responses you might have to its criticisms.


    1. Thnaks for letting me know about your blog, Ross. Very interesting. I’ve had a quick read and will prepare a response once I’ve had a bit more time to read it properly and think it through. Your post feds nicely into some thoughts I’ve been having about the nature and danger of dualism, which will become a post here sometime in the not-too-distant future
