Pando: Hot or Not founder responds to Nancy Jo Sales' new book: "I don’t think we invented human nature"
Nearly every tweet I’ve read about Nancy Jo Sales’ new book “American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers” has been some variation of “I’m scared to read this.” Indeed by page 20, I started making plans to move to an Amish village by the time my daughter turns 12. The deeper I read, the more I was impressed by many of the young women Sales interviewed, and the more sorry I felt that we've given them this world.  [...] Sales also describes how young girls worship Kim Kardashian and derive their self worth from how many likes they get on Instagram.

Sex-Aufklärung: Forscherin Tuider über Streit um sexuelle Vielfalt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Elisabeth Tuider [...] Fachgebiet Soziologie der Diversität leitet. Ihre Schwerpunkte sind Genderforschung, Sexualpädagogik und Prävention von sexueller Gewalt. [...] Tuider: Mit Verstören meinen wir, dass zum Beispiel beim Thema Homosexualität gängige Vorurteile infrage gestellt werden, um den Jugendlichen zu zeigen: Du kannst in der Vielfalt, die ohnehin längst Realität ist, selbstbestimmt entscheiden, wie du leben und lieben möchtest. SPIEGEL ONLINE: Genau das geht vielen zu weit. In Baden-Württemberg tobt seit Monaten ein Schulstreit, Kritiker wehren sich gegen "sexuelle Vielfalt" als Lernziel. Eltern haben Angst, die Kontrolle zu verlieren - und zwar nicht nur die streng katholischen. [...] >> Sie denken, sie seien umzingelt von neuen Lebensentwürfen, die ihnen ihre Macht streitig machen. << [...] Die Prävention von Gewalt ist Bestandteil von Sexualpädagogik. &! >> ARD Kontraste beitrag vom 06.02.2014 - bit.ly/1AdE0WB &! bit.ly/1AdGl3W

BBC Radio 4 - A History of Ideas, Historian Simon Schaffer on Beauty and Evolution, Feminine Beauty: A social construct?
Feminine Beauty: A social construct? // The French existentialist writer Simone de Beauvoir famously declares in her book The Second Sex that a woman isn’t born a woman, rather she becomes one. She means by this that there is no way women have to be, no given femininity, no ideal to which all women should conform. Simone de Beauvoir suggests that resistance to male stereotypes of beauty can mean greater equality. Voiced by Harry Shearer. Scripted by Nigel Warburton. &!&!&!& via http://www.reddit.com/r/FemmeThoughts/comments/2lqcw6/feminine_beauty_as_a_social_construct/ "it is feminism's goal to break away from that oppression and its labels. This deconstruction also represents a point of departure from the failings of humanism. [...] feminist theory is broadly applicable to any marginalized or oppressed group"

The Dispute Between Radical Feminism and Transgenderism
AND here the critique http://bit.ly/1tXlqLW & http://bit.ly/1ujpPJ9 // http://bit.ly/V1UxtS // http://bit.ly/1orNN4F // "In failing to provide a semblance of balance to the voices in the piece, this account becomes hopelessly skewed, and becomes little more than a radical feminist propaganda piece. Early on in her essay, Goldberg presents an extremely simplified and stereotyped view of trans women’s identities. She writes: “Trans women say that they are women because they feel female — that, as some put it, they have women’s brains in men’s bodies.” First, considering that the length of the article discusses trans people (and focuses heavily on trans women), to reduce the explanation of their complex experiences to three words — “they feel female” — is offensively reductionist. While such a passing nod to trans experiences might be not be out of place in a more LGBTQ-geared publication, in a more general consumption magazine[.]" + http://bit.ly/VkWUIA + http://huff.to/1Bo9aJr

GitHub co-founder resigns after investigation into harassment claims | The Verge
Horvath claimed to have experienced sexism and gender-based harassment at GitHub. She also spoke out about Preston-Werner and his wife, who she says personally harassed her for two years, the former berating her in his office and the latter stalking her at work. According to Horvath, the Preston-Warners were apparently concerned that she would undermine the company's reputation, perhaps due to her outspokenness on the issues around women in tech. + http://www.theverge.com/2014/3/19/5526574/github-sexism-scandal-julie-ann-horvath + http://www.theverge.com/2014/3/19/5526574/github-sexism-scandal-julie-ann-horvath + http://techcrunch.com/search/Julie+Ann+Horvath#stq=Julie Ann+Horvath&stp=1 "" GitHub was generally female-friendly, but her team felt like a boy’s club. She felt increasingly aware of "how little the men I worked with respected and valued my opinion" and observed the same thing happening to her female co-workers. ""
