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!
‘Someone’s Gotta Tell the Freakin’ Truth’: Jerry Falwell’s Aides Break Their Silence, on Politico—“At Liberty University, all anyone can talk about is Jerry Falwell Jr. Just not in public. … That’s beginning to change.”
Medicaid’s Dark Secret, on The Atlantic—“Medicaid, the government program that provides health care to more than 75 million low-income and disabled Americans, isn’t necessarily free. It’s the only major welfare program that can function like a loan.”
Appalled Graphic Designer Shows Girls’ Life Magazine What Their Cover Should Look Like, on Women You Should Know—“Katherine was motivated to change the cover so that others will be more aware of the messages they are sending to girls.” Note: I came upon this post when it was shared on facebook by a feminist friend who was critical of it. She argued that the critique risked stigmatizing and shaming girls who like makeup and fashion, even as it ostensibly sought to empower girls.
Why does the Dept. of OB/GYN at the University of Utah offer a premarital exam for women? on Dr. Jen Gunter—“THERE IS NO GYN EXAM THAT TELLS YOU IF YOUR BODY IS READY FOR SEX. Sorry, I’m shouting again.
Why industry is going green on the quiet, on the Guardian—“Consumers seem to believe that products cannot become more sustainable without becoming more expensive. So anything to the contrary is met with suspicion.”
