This past week has had me on the internet less than usual, I ended up dealing with kitchen disasters and running around doing lots of admin.
This did not mean that I did not see anything that was worthwhile on the internet:
- This is an absolutely brilliant article about the problem with the Fifty Shades Trilogy. Any form of sexual contact requires trust and intimacy, and communication all of which are lacking in 50 Shades.
- I also read an excellent article about some thoughts on stopping rape. The bottom line is that rape, is never, ever the victim’s fault. No matter what! No ifs, no buts, no maybes.
- Since we seem to be on the topic of sex and consent, do yourselves a favour and learn about the “Only yes means yes” movement. This article about the Steubenville rape case is a good start about why it is necessary.
Departing from the theme of sex and consent, this I read a brilliant little story about Heisenberg’s Cats, it was just what my geek heart needed and it is great fun. You should read it.
I think this is true of a number of professions, and the final piece of advice is priceless: Respect the work of those who have come before you.
Love and reflections,
