Weekend Homework: Late for the Holiday Edition
Some lucky few of us will enjoy Monday off. I am amongst those who will be basking in the brand new autumn. That's my excuse (the extra day) for lateness on Weekend Homework.
1. Evelyn Nieves writes about the rise in hate crimes against Navajos.
2. Ethan Miller says that Other Economies Are Possible!
3. John Cloud tells us What's Good About the New SAT?
4. Belledame says This is what intellectual honesty looks like responding to, inspired by antiprincess's "I shame the matriarchy". Both are must-reads, whether you agree a lot, some, a little, or not at all. I want to give mad props to both for their level of psychic engagement, emotional investment, and personal commitment to struggling, analyzing, critiquing, and soul-searching through the serious issues of feminism, solidarity, relationship, femininity, sexuality, vulnerability, and the connections and disconnections between the personal and the political.
Then, when you're done with those, check out Bitch's fresh poststructuralist response.
