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.
What the Media Gets Wrong about Children Dying of Gunshots, on Skepchick—“The problem with portraying all these gun deaths as accidentally happening to small children means that people will get the wrong idea of how we might go about combatting it.”
I Had 4 Boys—Until One of Them Told Me She Was Really a Girl, on Good Housekeeping—“I was raised as a devout, conservative Christian with strong Republican values in the South. It’s a place where being different can not only be unforgiving, but unsafe. I was, and am, an active member of our local church.”
Dear Parents-to-Be: Stop Celebrating Your Baby’s Gender, on Marie Claire—“If you’re like me—a woman in her early 30s—your weekends are increasingly planned around these pastel celebrations and their games.”Are Millennials having less sex? Or more? And what’s coming next? on Sociological Images—“Sociological questions have lots of moving parts and it looks as if we’re still figuring this one out.”
The Good Guy with a Gun Theory, Debunked, on Vice—“In the mid 1990s, Americans primarily owned guns for recreation, and as recently as 2005, a strong plurality thought only police officers should carry guns in public.”
