This week’s pins,tweets and whatnot.
I Used To Be The Best Mom - a great guest post from Crazed in the Kitchen about how she was a great mom…before she had kids
20 Things We Need To Stop Talking About in 2013 – Seriously, people…there are things that don’t deserve any more lip service. Like the word “slut” : No one is a slut. “Slut” is a made-up word to keep women from having as much fun as men. A person who enjoys sex is just a person and a person who is a virgin is also just a person and everyone should lay off each other’s sex lives. Retire the word “slut” please.
New Mexico Introduces Bill That Criminalizes Abortion After Rape As Evidence Tampering - “New Mexico needs to strengthen its laws to deter sex offenders,” said Brown. “By adding this law in New Mexico, we can help to protect women across our state.” Uh, lady…how about better sex ed programs that includes thorough and emphatic information about consent? ED-U-FUCKING-CA-TION. Teach not to rape. Don’t punish those who have been raped.
Letting Go Of The Thin Fantasy -I love this short and to the point post from The Nearsighted Owl about ignoring the idea that there’s a thin person trapped inside you when you’re fat.
Four Ways the Local Food Movement is Transforming Race Relations in America - “The seeds of better race relations are already being planted across the country in home gardens, community farms, and farmer’s markets. As we build local food systems together, the different parts of the American Salad Bowl are going to mingle and connect more than they ever have before. I look forward to tasting the bold new creations that will emerge.”

Polyamory & Aspergers - This is really i interesting g. I also recently watched the documentary (A)Sexual and there was a bit about Asperger’s & asexuality. The intersection of asexuality and polyamory is pretty interesting,too.
Where the STDs at? - STD hotspots in the US
Attracted To Two Sexes, Committed To One – I can’t relate and it would never work for me but I know some people who are bi and still want to have a monogamous relationship, so…sharing.
