Link Roundups

HannahGrace thinks that a contributing factor of rape culture is the idea that silence equals consent. It doesn’t! Read this blog to find out why the word “yes” is so important to say/hear during sex!

Devystation is concerned with the mortality rate in our land of the free.

Kate found this article, which talks about how ageism is affecting women in the workplace and in their daily life. She loved how Tira Harpaz showed women that you can keep your self from disappearing, as she says what happens to women when they are in their 50’s and 60’s, by being with people who are paying attention to you and care about you and your work.

FemOnFire found this article that illuminates the flaws in the American myth of masculinity à la Rick Ross and Don Draper

JGrand50 asks readers to check out Rookiemag.com, a website started by a 16 year old feminist. How have I missed this?

Kelly J. saw this poster on another blog post and thought that it was very “sparking” for conversation. The picture is clearly an old fashioned photograph, but it is interesting to see how things were publicized and shown in the women’s light in the generations before us. This picture is offensive without the words on it and then with the words as well it is nothing but a sexist, outdated and disgusting photo!

  1. Heya! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to
    ask. Does operating a well-established blog like yours require
    a lot of work? I’m completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start
    a blog so I can share my personal experience and feelings
    online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations
    or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

  2. @StartaBlog – the short answer it no – running a blog like ours is not a lot of work! You have to be dedicated to writing frequently, reading others blogs, and using social media to advertise your work, but other than that, it is very simple! Here’s a post I wrote about blogging recently – get in touch with me if you have questions or just want to chat!!
