Saturday Link Love: Segregation, Princesses, and Hysteria

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

When School Choice Means Choosing Segregation, on Vice—“More broadly, the Minnesota case could address whether school choice is making our country’s public schools not only more segregated but also worse for poor and minority kids.”

If Your Daughter Wants to Dress Like a Princess, Let Her, on Jezebel—“How do you explain to a two-year-old that the things she likes are capitalist, tacky, and play into gender stereotypes? You don’t.”

Hysteria, Witches, and the Wandering Uterus: A Brief History, on Literary Hub—“It was believed that hysteria, also known as neurasthenia, could be set off by a plethora of bad habits including reading novels (which caused erotic fantasies)…”

The Dark Secret at the Heart of AI, MIT Technology Review—“Getting a car to drive this way was an impressive feat. But it’s also a bit unsettling, since it isn’t completely clear how the car makes its decisions.”
