Saturday Link Love: Relax Ladies, Requiem for the Supreme Court, and the Child Abuse Contrarian October 13, 2018

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.

Relax, Ladies. Don’t Be So Uptight. You Know You Want It, on Medium—“Gen X. We came of age with movies like Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, and Revenge of the Nerds. Date rape scenes were ‘funny.’ Harassment meant you were ‘hot.’ Getting pinned to a wall by a guy at work, at school, or a party was ‘normal.'”

Requiem for the Supreme Court, on the Atlantic—“That Court is gone forever. We will spend at least the rest of my lifetime fighting over its rotting corpse.”

The Child Abuse Contrarian, on the New Yorker—“In all the cases he has worked on, Holick has never concluded that a child was being abused. On the rare occasions when he didn’t diagnose EDS, he attributed the bone fractures to rickets or Vitamin D deficiency. Many geneticists and bone specialists find it troubling that he diagnoses EDS in nearly a hundred per cent of the cases he examines.”
