On Our Radar
Another week, another roundup! Here's what caught our eyes this week around the Internet:
- In the "Beyond WTF" file, Mother Jones dissects the proposed law in South Dakota that could have legalized the murder of abortion providers. Fortunately, Feministing announced Thursday morning that it's already been shelved.
- Racialicious editor (and Bitch contributor) Latoya Peterson has announced her conference and speaking schedule!
- After distasteful comments about Lara Logan's assault, the Huffington Post reports that journalist Nir Rosen has lost his NYU fellowship.
- Also at HuffPo: hurray for Facebook? The "Relationship Status" droplist now includes "In a civil union" and "In a domestic partnership!"
- The Riot's Catcaller Form reveals the misogynistic assumptions behind street harassment. (via Feministing)
- MTV EXIT debuts their "When Will I Feel Love" video about human trafficking by Black Iris and Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast.
- At RH Reality Check and Tiger Beatdown, Bitch contributor Sarah Jaffe continues to profile the ten Democrats who co-sponsored HR3.
- VivirLatino explores the misleadingly-named Secure Communities program, which targets immigrants under the guise of protection from crime.
- Yet another Bitch writer, Anna Clark, discusses the erasure of female voices in global literature over at Book Slut. In the same vein, author Eileen Myles responds to the Vida pie charts at The Awl.
- And last but not least, Sparky at Womanist Musings comments on the fierce heteronormativity of a recent holiday.
