Saturday Link Love: Modesty, Madness, and Parentification

Saturday Link Love: Modesty, Madness, and Parentification October 28, 2017

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.

Your Modesty Will Never Protect You, No Matter What Mayim Bialik Says, on The Concourse—“The Jewish laws of feminine modesty were the topic of a lot of conversations at the all-girls Orthodox yeshiva high school I attended in Brooklyn.”

We’re All Mad Here: Weinstein, Women, and the Language of Demons, on Longreads—“We’re through the looking glass now. As women all over the world come forward to talk about their experiences of sexual violence, all our old certainties about what was and was not normal are peeling away like dead skin.”

When I was nineteen years old, Elie Wiesel grabbed my ass, on Medium—“It was a calculated act and worse than you think; he mistook me for an ultra-religious underage girl who was unlikely to tell anyone about it.”

Literally, Why Can’t I Say #MeToo?, on TSM—“It’s been an issue that I barely ‘believe’ myself. And I don’t know what that says about me.”

When Kids Have to Act Like Parents, It Affects Them for Life, on The Atlantic—“If you’re parentified and you leave your younger siblings, it’s like having a parent abandon them.”
