March 12, 2007

I’m getting psyched up for spring – the bike has finally come out of hibernation and took me to Brighton Beach this morning. I feel like I can breathe again.

If you’re Jewish, you probably got this emailed to you from 5 different people. Journey from a Chinese Orphanage to a Jewish Rite of Passage tells the story of Cece Nealon-Shapiro, adopted at 3 months from southern China by a Jewish lesbian couple from New York.

Southern Baptist leader calls for prenatal testing for the gay gene and research in getting rid of it. Wait, what? Ha ha ha. It would be funnier if it were an Onion story. I can’t wait till this crap hits the mainstream fundies. Via Queer Sighted.

Carnivals: This month’s Carnival of Bent Attractions (the queer blog carnival) is full of great links, including a salty one. Also check out the 33rd Carnival of Feminists.

New-to-me magazine Make/Shift: feminisms in motion put out a call for submissions. They’re looking for many kinds of contributions. Via Our Bodies Our Blog.

Finally, a Feminism 101 blog. (that’s what it’s called). Via Feministe.

Marriage has almost become a luxury item, one that only the well educated and well paid are interested in.” (married is now the exception to the rule). Via Pandagon.

Last year’s Jewish Feminism in America conference at Barnard is now up on the CROW website in online format. Definitely check out the transcript from the ‘Changing Culture’ panel, it was really fantastic. I may be blogging about this more in detail at a later date.

Lastly, check out yours truly over at jspot on the topic of the HPV/cervical cancer vaccine and why the current propositions for state-mandated vaccinations might be missing something.
