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 David French’s Atlantic Piece Is Missing, on Slate—“The problem was that most of those children weren’t orphans in the way people generally think of the term. The vast majority had lost only one parent or lived with extended family.”
The Complicated, Messy Identity of a Transracial Adoptee, on Slate—“In the Atlantic, David French says questioning a white family’s ability to raise a child of color is wrong. I know it isn’t.”
She Never Saw A Classroom Until College. Now She Has A Ph.D. And A Lot Of Thoughts About Education, on Forbes—“Much has been written about the abuse she suffered at the hands of her brother, the gaslighting from her parents, and how she ultimately gained the courage to break away. Less has been written about the title and central theme of her story: the power of education.”Between Brock Turner and Brett Kavanaugh, when do girls matter? on Simcha Fisher—“If you don’t want men to be dragged down by decades-old accusations of rape, then you need to crack down on minutes-old accusations of rape as they happen.”
