The SST Abortion Fiasco
Remember this? Yeah I was hoping to forget as well. But just in case you wanted to see a great range of responses to it:
- Octavia Spitfire on the reasons why teens need privacy.
- Some great, strongly worded rage from Queen of Thorns.
- A post from La Ranita which also mulls on questions of age in abortion debates.
- A whole lot of sense with just a dash of ARGH on A Touch of the Crazy.
- A response from ALRANZ and one from Mothers for Choice.
- And finally, a really quite astounding post on The Hand Mirror which I have already linked.
I have very little understanding of the actual budget. Mostly because I haven't read it. Also because I took one gen-ed course on economics and slept through most of it. But I do like to know how the budget will affect people. So I did some reading and here are the best bits:
- From No Right Turn.
- A short but sweet post from Keith Ng at Public Address.
- A release from NZUSA on how this budget sucks if you're a student and especially if you're female.
- Another link round-up from The Hand Mirror.
- A massive Trigger Warning on this post from Sady Doyle at Tiger Beatdown about some rapper I've never heard of who is possibly the most misogynistic sounding dude ever.
- A good post on the Dominique Strauss-Kahn allegations from stargazer at THM.
- Another good post on the above from Tiger Beatdown.
- Even though her delivery is a little bit 'I'm-giving-a-speech-to-my-fifth-form-class,' this clip from Feminist Frequency has some interesting stuff to say about the 'Evil Demon Seductress' trope in pop culture.
