I will blog tonight. And every night for the next week. But I won’t necessarily have anything useful to say. For instance, tonight, I just want you to read things that other people have to say. Start with this post on Feministe about a very good Bob Herbert column that has only one flaw: Herbert doesn’t quite grasp the humanity of women who work in the sex industry.
Further, read a few posts at Ilyka’s: Occasionally Conversations with my Man Are Instructive, and the more recent I Also Don’t Give Lectures on Particle Physics, If You Were Wondering, and Obsolescence and a Wish for the New Year.
Among the blogs you might also spend your time perusing are ones that appear on the right over there: Blackamazon, brownfemipower’s place, and Renegade Evolution (this last blog being, I edit to add, not safe for most workplaces) – and that’s just for instance; do feel free to follow links to other links above.
My point, if I may be so presumptuous as to claim one, is only that when people tell us what their lives are like, I believe it to be both polite and practical to take their word for it.
