Okay, so since I’ve become a freelancer I’ve been reading a lot. Possibly too much. I’m a keen reader and like to bring some new thoughts in to shake me up! As follows:
Cool website from Michael Yichao, who wrote on the political correctness argument in comedy. The title speaks for itself:
Then, there is Emma Lindsay. Twice: Once deconstructing the idea that rape destroys your personhood (and analyzing how sexual assault is something we, as society, become used to) and once, showing that Rey in Star Wars being a super powered Mary Sue is not as feminist as it might look like. Thumbs up!
Laura Munoz, quickly and eloquently shows why rape jokes in a practical situation are so, so very unfunny (in fact, threatening).
And finally the big one. Reserve time for this. Feministkilljoys is writing how folks protest being not-platformed by throwing words like oppression and censorship – in fact stifling legitimate discussion. I learnt a lot from it. You’re welcome.
