Saturday Link Love: Culture War, a Latina Superhero, and Lactivism

Saturday Link Love: Culture War, a Latina Superhero, and Lactivism January 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.

The Women’s March Is a Culture War, on Samantha Field—“Finally, one friend asked ‘Which rights don’t I have that I’m supposed to be marching for?’ and that’s when it finally crystallized for me what the people I know aren’t understanding about the Women’s March.”

Week 1 in the Trump White House: So that happened. on Feministe—“Trump supporters who decried criticism of Trump and insisted that we just need to give him a chance! should be happy to know that we did, because it’s not like we had a choice, like seriously, what does that even mean.”

Meet Marvel’s Beyoncé-inspired queer Latina superhero America Chavez, on Identities.Mic—“America Chavez is the queer Latina superhero the world sorely needs in Donald Trump’s anti-LGBTQ, border-loving nation.”

We Will Fuck Up. Let’s Confront That and Do Better. on Feministing—“The thing to try to do, when we do fuck up, is to take a second, accept the fuck up, incorporate it into our world views, and keep going.”

Trump Is Wrong: Torture Doesn’t Work, on Skepchick—“Thanks to TV and movies, the general public still has an outdated idea that if you beat the ever loving shit out of someone, that person will tell you what you want to know.”

Call the “March for Life” what it really is, a March for Lies, on Dr. Jen Gunter—“If you identify with the so-called ‘pro-life’ movement in the United States then you support an organization advancing beliefs based on lies. This is fact.”

When Lactivism Kills, on Grounded Parents—“As a pregnant person, who is literally about to give birth to my third child, the stories that are making me shake and cry are about lactivism, breastfeeding advocacy, and how this movement is literally killing babies and breast/chestfeeding parents.”
