Do you know where your college student is?
Here's some lovely things I've been reading between studying for Women in US History Between 1600 and 1870...
The Atlantic has a detailed article about... pubic hair. Is women having pubic hair becoming a thing of the past? This article is fantastic both because it is highly informative, and because it has a truly incredible variety of euphemisms for pubic hair which I will immediately be adding to my vocabulary.
Time has an old but lovely article on fanfiction, in Harry Potter and other fandoms, particularly the legal and ethical questions about using someone else's character. It makes me want to read fanfiction instead of studying.
And finally, Danah Boyd asks some very difficult questions about media discussion of LGBT bullying. It's a good read, if not super-depressing. On a related note, what do you think of Facebook's new suicide prevention tool? I think it's pretty neat.
Reading fanfiction is always better than studying. I've been watching Doctor Who, so there's definitely fanfiction in my future. : )
The insistence that women shave all and any hair they find on their bodies is increasingly disturbing. I mean, pubic hair is a sign of sexual maturity so by shaving it off you're saying, 'I'm not sexually mature yet'...
