Saturday Link Love: Kamala Harris, Testing, and Measles February 9, 2019

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!

Kamala Harris’ Crusade Against ‘Revenge Porn’, on Politico—“As a prosecutor, she pioneered the fight against online sex harassment. Then she overreached. Is she a savior, or a threat to the First Amendment?”

Why I talk about abusers ‘testing’ instead of grooming, on Jimmy Hinton—“As the son of a pedophile who was learning and growing and questioning everything about my childhood, this notion of ‘grooming’ victims into being abused just didn’t seem adequate to describe what happened between my dad and his victims.”

It Was All So Different Then, on The Nib—“Who’s ‘We?’ – On the white agreement to misinterpret the world”

Scientists Crack A 50-Year-Old Mystery About The Measles Vaccine, on Goats and Soda—“Back in the 1960s, the U.S. started vaccinating kids for measles. As expected, children stopped getting measles. But something else happened. Childhood deaths from all infectious diseases plummeted. Even deaths from diseases like pneumonia and diarrhea were cut by half.”

RAPED, ABUSED, AND IGNORED: DISABLED WOMEN ARE INVISIBLE VICTIMS, on Dame—“Eighty-three percent of disabled women experience rape or abuse, often at the hands of caretakers. And without a way to report their violations, the perps frequently go unpunished.”

The Literary Canon Is Mostly White. Here’s an Alternative Latin American Reading List, on Remezcla—“The Literary Canon Is Mostly White. Here’s an Alternative Latin American Reading List”
