The Time Everyone “Corrected” the World’s Smartest Woman
The Monty Hall problem. A few times I've had long, long arguments with people refusing to accept how it works. It's also a place where pigeons learn better than humans.

#Shirtgate / #Shirtstorm - a bunch of people being disappointed and saying "That's inappropriate", not a feminist lynch mob
Assuming this is an accurate representation (I've not searched myself), the guy in the stupid shirt hasn't been 'hounded', he's just very visibly worn an inappropriate shirt, thus had quite a few people react (fairly mildly) to it.

A PSA About Nude Photos
'*Tasers you* *steals your shoes* SHOULDN’T WEAR SHOES BRO'

Well put. It's theft. But because its of women, and because there's a sexual/titillation element, the victim blaming suddenly appears.

“‘We Have Always Fought’: Challenging the ‘Women, Cattle and Slaves’ Narrative” by Kameron Hurley — A Dribble of Ink
'I’m going to tell you a story about llamas. It will be like every other story you’ve ever heard about llamas: how they are covered in fine scales; how they eat their young if not raised properly; and how, at the end of their lives, they hurl themselves – lemming-like - over cliffs to drown in the surging sea. They are, at heart, sea creatures, birthed from the sea, married to it like the fishing people who make their livelihood there.'

Swedish cinemas take aim at gender bias with Bechdel test rating | World news | theguardian.com
As has been said before, the Bechdel test is not an absolute; you can fail and be a pro-feminist film, or pass and be very misogynistic. It's more what it says about the proportion of films that fail it.

If I Admit That 'Hating Men' Is a Thing, Will You Stop Turning It Into a Self-Fulfilling Prophecy?
Rather good set of points on the supposed claims of 'misandry' not actually having the societal/cultural entrenchment that misogyny does, and that most feminists don't want men to have to have all the bad stuff they get through similar cultural entrenchments.

Little Wars - a set of rules for playing with toy soldiers, written by H. G. Wells in 1913
Who knew H.G. Wells was a miniatures wargamer? Not I. Pity about the sub-title 'a game for boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games and books.' Though at least it's acknowledging that girls might want to play it

Michigan bans women representatives for using the V-word - Telegraph
... in a debate about abortion.

There's an argument that it was for the context of the use: "And finally, Mr. Speaker, I'm flattered that you're all so interested my vagina, but 'no' means 'no.'", but that's not an argument that the people supporting it seem to be using much; given comments like "It was so offensive, I don't even want to say it in front of women. I would not say that in mixed company."

Also, I am wondering if the telegraph was trolling with their original title for this story: "Michigan bans women representatives for vagina use‎"
