On Our Radar
It's Friday, which means our radar is beeping! Here's what we've been reading in our post-Thanksgiving-feast torpor.
- We're pretty excited that someone noticed how tired Sex and the City comparisons are when writing about "the modern woman." We're not so excited that the New York Times has missed that memo.
- World AIDS Day was December 1st, and we're pretty sure these celebrities have their hearts in the right place with the "Buy Life' campaign, but really? "Sacrificed her/his digital life?" Huh.
- Forbes (I know, right?!) has a blog post up contributing to the never-ending discussion over successful, educated women and their childbearing habits. And guess what? There's even a Sex and the City reference in there.
- Remember how John McCain really, really doesn't want any gay Americans in the military? Well...he still doesn't.
- Courtney at Feministing wrote about the "sister school" experience, and how stereotypes of women's colleges can turn deadly.
- Taking a turn for the very weird, glam-metal-punk-glitter-rock band GWAR disemboweled a visage of Sarah Palin at a recent concert, and it even made Gawker uncomfortable.
- Slate applies "stereotype threat" theory to girls in science, with interesting (if a little generalizing) results.
- The Daily Beast wrote about parental involvement in bullying, and Slate was underwhelmed.
