How women prepare for first dates | Lalajia's random recommendations
When I have a ladyfriend round I show them where the key is so that they can get out by themselves should they wish to do so. All of them, so far, have looked at me like I was odd.

The Opposite of Rape Culture is Nurturance Culture | Dating Tips for the Feminist Man
Fascinating, relatable, and very important. "This is men’s work to do, and yet it is needed by people of all genders who have men in their lives [...] It can be as simple as sending someone you know this piece, and saying “I’m available.” It can be as simple as posting this piece, and saying “I’m here.”"

I'm available. I'm here.

londonkds | Well, that wasn't nice to wake up to
I always thought that the accusations against Moffat were on the overblown side. He wasn't a shining beacon of feminism, but he genuinely adored his subject matter, despite being a bit clueless. Chibnall, on the other hand, seems to be a proper misogynist. Of course I didn't notice any of this myself. I just thought that he was an incredibly shit writer.

Wow. I like to look at pretty ladies as much as the next man, but... wow. Note also the gratuitous attempted astroturfing in the comments, and @michaellegge's diligent and accurate rebuttals of same.

head/parapet | Stella Duffy
"I know that I, for one, will be much less likely to mention trans at all, in any context, because the upset and anger over ‘getting it wrong’ (and it does seem there are some varying reactions, so this too is subjective) is too painful. And so we shut up. And nothing is said. And that’s really depressing."

Why I retired mycrot.ch
"I’ve now migrated my personal site and blog to the jonliv.es domain you’re reading this on now. My personal website is also directly linked to my reputation, both professional and personal, and I’m making a stand that I don’t want either to say `Hey, this guy’s a bro just like us'." The reasons why are pretty good, too.

In which Muslim women have always been muhaddithat - scholars of the Hadith
"Muslim women’s religious scholarship is seen as sort of a cottage industry: if women study, it is pretty much in the purdah of their own homes or in segregated rooms in mosques or madrassas [...] When he started on the project, he expected to find 20 or 30 women, enough to fill a single-volume biographical dictionary. Seven years on, he has found more than 8,000, and his dictionary now stands at 40 volumes."

Purdah is to religious scholarship as Stalin is to classical music composition: discuss.
