On Our Radar: Feminist News Roundup
Here's some of the feminist news we're reading about right now:
• Conversations by people of color on Twitter and other social media platforms are holding the American media accountable for their lack of skill and sensitivity in discussing race in pop culture. [Salon]
• If you were disappinted when Rashida Jones told women to "stop acting like whores," you're probably still going to be disappointed by her explanation of it, even though it's always nice to hear celebrities engaging critically with feminism. [Clutch]
• In the latest installment of comedic reactions to Cosmo's sex tips, someone actually tests out some of the awful advice they give, like eating a doughnut off of a penis, or poking your partner with a fork while you have sex. Hilarity ensues. [AlterNet]
• Wearing clothes you don't usually wear can bring you out of your comfort zone and raise a lot of questions about identity, community, and presentation. One person reflects on their own experience with this in "Fat-Booty Butch Wears Leggings—Confuses World, Confronts Self." [Autostraddle]
