Here are some good links that used to be on my front page. I'm putting this here so I can take it off my info page. It's linked from the info page. There's a new post beneath this one.

For when Roe is gone: I'm linking to this because I think it's a good start.

Try also: wildcherrygal has another blog at which she describes how to do a safe, EARLY herbal abortion with parsley and vitamin C. Clip and save.

A good reference for anybody who wants to debunk the endless whining about how women are show favortism in family court. They're not. Go read.

The only moral abortion is my abortion. One of the many hypocrisies of the pro-birth movement.

What happens when the so-called pro-life movement gets its way; women have to place their health at risk.

If you want to stop rape, stop bitching at women who are the primary victims of it, and start bitching at the men who either commit it or excuse other men rape instead of committing it themselves.

Stop bitching that all that feminists believe all sex is rape. That has been thoroughly disproven, and will only identify you as a troll.

MacKinnon was further tied to the quote she did not utter by a March 1999 article by conservative commentator Cal Thomas in which he incorrectly identified her as the author of Professing Feminism and quoted her as saying: "In a patriarchal society all heterosexual intercourse is rape because women, as a group, are not strong enough to give meaningful consent." Not only is the quote misattributed, but the putative source, Professing Feminism: Cautionary Tales From the Strange World of Women's Studies, is a book criticizing the work of MacKinnon and other feminists, written by Daphne Patai and Noretta Koertge.

If you want to read up on feminism--and I'd suggest rather strongly that you do so--here are some good books to start with:

Virgin or Vamp: How the press covers sex crimes And how sexism lurks in our language.

Women Who Kill How the past is not as far in the past as you might think.

Next Time She'll Be Dead How the past has become the present.

Still Unequal: Legal bias Against Women The book FRAs and MRAs don't want you to read.

Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women A useful look at conservative backlash against women.

Against Our Will The book about rape that you must read, or you are ignorant on the subject.

Fraternity Gang Rape on Campus How rape is a part of ordinary life. These guys go on to graduate: do you think they leave rape behind them?

A Woman Scorned Stereotypes about women that prevent us from getting justice.

The Myth of Women's Masochism This belief serves to justify so many others.

The Best-Kept Secret: the sexual abuse of children.</i> Not a fun read.

The Assault on Truth: Freud's suppression of the seduction theory Selling out women rather than offend men and the impact of this decision decades later.

Men on rape by Tim Beneke A truly scary book, because he talks to rapists and supposedly non-rapist men--and the men seem more than a little---or a lot---sympathetic---to the rapists.

In Glory's Shadow Men, women, the military, and the Citadel.

Tailspin: Women at War in the Wake of Tailhook Somewhat outdated in view of Silver Star-winning female soldiers in Iraq, but valueable nonetheless.

Ampersand, of Alas, A Blog refutes conclusively the notion that the wage gap doesn't exist. No one has an excuse to make this argument any longer.

How to really prevent rape. Here's a clue: don't blame the victim. Let's talk about the rapist of all people, shall we?

How come whenever we talk about violence against women it turns out to be all about men? How come so many people want to believe men have it so much worse, and what purpose does that belief serve?

But women do it, too! Then how come men don't do it, too ---form their own groups, their own shelters, or just do something that doesn't involve bitching at feminists? How come men don't do it, too?

Are men equal victims of wife beating domestic violence? Read it. No excuses.

How many men are rapists? Also something you have to read; no excuses.

Anatomy of a rape culture. Read it: no excuses.

It's not enough to cite research: check the date and the methodology. If they're using old stuff it's a clue that new, improved methods don't bear out their old ideas.

Ampersand's research and reasoning are impeccable, so I expect a basic familiarity with his research before posting on my blog. There are anti-feminist trolls at his blog; just be warned.

Had I told you that my brother went to the Citadel? You can imagine.

Holy shit.

I need to edit this.

OJ IS INNOCENT??!??! *jerks sunglasses off like Horatio*

Thanks for this post, though, I saw a few I haven't read yet. So I'll go read them now!!

Here's another good click-to-donate site: Tamponification by Seventh Generation. From their blurb:
Women’s shelters in the U.S. go through thousands of tampons and pads monthly, and, while agencies generally assist with everyday necessities such as toilet paper, diapers, and clothing, this most basic need is often overlooked. You and I may take our monthly trips down the feminine care aisle for granted, but, for women in shelters, a box of tampons is five dollars they can’t spare. Here’s some good news: you can help us contribute to rectifying this situation by making a virtual donation below!
For each virtual donation, Seventh Generation will send a pack of organic cotton tampons or chlorine-free pads to a shelter in your state.

It's amazing how something we all take for granted can be so necessary.

Yes! I did not know that women’s shelters needed such donations. Ever since discovering menstrual cups (and the site’s community, menstrual_cups) I haven’t needed tampons and now plan to donate my leftover unused tampons to a shelter near me.

The link For when Roe is gone is broken.

Can you tag this?
If you tag it something "references" (or indeed "bibliography" or "required reading") then it should show up in the sidebar (and then you don't have to do what I have to do with all those pre-tagging/untagged posts when I want to find a link from back when, google-fu!)

Re: Can you tag this?
Okay. It's linked from the title page, though.
Dec. 8th, 2006 08:04 pm (UTC)
The *really* useful thing about tags is that eventually you might have a bunch of posts full of links, and then you can mega-link-dump them all with one click.
Dec. 9th, 2006 06:18 am (UTC)
Your for when roe is gone link is broken.

However, if you don’t mind, I’m gonna rec, Sister Zeus and her reading list is also a good resource.
Dec. 9th, 2006 02:29 pm (UTC)
No, I don't mind.

Hey, Ginmar.

I came to this page looking for the link about how to do an early abortion, but you don't actually link to the post in question, just to wildcherrygal's blog. I've been poking around and I can't find anything relating to a post about aborting with parsley or Vitamin C.
