I’m finally getting around to posting a round-up of Harpyness posts for the first time since October 2nd. Sorry folks! But it’s actually been kinda a slow season for everyone over at TPoH, so the links haven’t been accumulating too fast. Here’s what I got for y’all:
- I finished up live-blogging Jessica Yee’s Feminism For Real anthology with the following installments:
- My Secret (a poem)
- Mistakes I Didn’t Know I Was Making
- My Journey to Indigenous Feminism
- This Shit is Real
- Finding Our Voice in the Mainstream Media Madness
- and On Learning How Not to be an Asshole Academic Feminist
- I wrote about travel yearning and nostalgia for place when hunting around in my photograph files made me unexpectedly miss living in Aberdeen with a vengeance.
- I read and reviewed Tristan Taormino’s latest erotica anthology, Take Me There, which features trans* and genderqueer characters. I used the post to muse about the what I look for in my erotic fiction.
- I invited folks to join me for National Novel-Writing Month and asked what other creative endeavors they enjoyed during their leisure time.
- I shared the audio of NPR’s Talk of the Nation discussion of sexuality education.
- I posted Jay Smooth’s TEDx talk on how to have constructive conversations about race and racism.
- and I had a small rant about why folks who hate on social media as time-wasting activity are letting new technologies blind them to the way that people are continuing to connect with one another over the same everyday things we human beings probably always have.
