Mimi on the colonialist history of the “harem pant.”

Cara on the social forces of bigotry that drive kids as young as thirteen to commit hate crimes.

The French government is in talks about banning the burqa from public wear? Are you fucking serious? (via)

Renee on talking to her sons about deconstructing gender roles, using Xena as a framework. (For the record, that show was the backdrop of my formative years. The cheese factor is high, and I’m annoyed that the characters — who live and fight in the supposed wild — are always perfectly made up and manicured and shaved, but it’s still a damn good show.)
