- Ms. Magazine is doing a four part series on sexual objectification. Part 3 has behaviors that we can stop engaging in for our mental heath and well-being, including seeking random male attention on the streets. (Britni had some thoughts about her experiences with giving up attention-seeking behaviors on her Tumblr.)
- Dan Soloman has a great piece on when rape jokes are appropriate. The jokes he talks about being okay are more “rape culture” jokes, rather than “rape” jokes. Ultimately, he asks, “If a person in your audience who has raped somebody heard the joke, would they feel like what they’ve done is normal and not really that big of a deal? If the answer to that question is “yes,”… then your joke is shitty and you shouldn’t make it.”
- xoJane staff members share their experiences with “casual sexual assault,” and talk about why it needs to stop.
- A series on tweets from women about the constant vigilence they experience every time they are alone in the public sphere.
