|On the shore (Falmouth, Mass.)|

at The Pursuit of Harpyness I contributed:
- The link to a great post from the Guardian on the junk science of sexual attraction.
- I wrote about the conservative study One Parent or Five, asking why the diversity of family forms generates so much anxiety (and in turn such poor scholarship!)
- I posted thoughts from Jay Smooth on rapper Frank Ocean’s story about falling in love with a male friend.
- I asked the Harpies where they go for their local coffee fix (and shared my own Boston faves).
- A few things I would have written more about if time and energy had aligned.
- A rant about Boston Sports Club advertising (read: fat-shaming).
- Ten things I like about Hanna (in honor of our fast-approaching marriage).
- And finally, three Tuesday Teasers (links lists):
and a few Tumblr-length thoughts over at the feminist librarian reads:
- NOT back-to-school once again!
- I’ve been reading all these FEELS about parenting and marriage lately…
- instead of talking about [how] home-based births are “unsafe”…
- reading books about wage-work care-giving and motherhood…
