Good Reads

Movie Casting for Warm Bodies Shows Hollywood Racial Inequality – In the book, the character that definitely white Analeigh Tipton plays is not white.

Susan Sontag’s Radical Vision for Remixing Education – “Why not eliminate schooling between age 12-16? It’s biologically + psychologically too turbulent a time to be cooped up inside, made to sit all the time. During these years, kids would live communally — doing some work, anyway being physically active, in the countryside; learning about sex — free of their parents. Those four ‘missing’ years of school could be added on, at a much later age….” Some of this makes a ridiculous amount of sense.

The Media, Body Image, and Anorexia -I am the mother of two beautiful little girls.I am the survivor of an eating disorder. This has more impact than anything I’ve read about eating disorders, probably because Kelly herself has been there.  By the way, if you’re not reading Kelly’s blog regularly, you should do that.
