Today, we’re sharing some of the best things we’ve found around the internet, running the gamut from serious to amazing.
- Jezebel posted recently a story of “How My Korean Mother Gave Me the Courage to Transition.” An incredibly moving story.
- Awesome job, Sweden: Feministing brought our attention to a toy company there reverses genders in their Christmas catalogue, showing that all toys are for all genders of child.
- NPR has a great story about the new first lady of China (a former military officer AND singing superstar) and how she’s breaking the mold - particularly on AIDS awareness.
- Not unexpected, but still sad: The New York Times reports on studies that have found that when parents cannot enroll in their state’s Medicaid program, their children tend not to have health insurance either.
- Slate says that all men should get annual exams. Where’s the best place, they say? Your local Planned Parenthood.
- Speaking of, have you seen Fosgood’s Movember posts on men’s health this month? If not, check them out: “Want to Live a Shorter Life? Be a Man.“; “Why Men Don’t Go to the Doctor“; “Marijuana and Testicular Cancer“; “Balls, Cojones, Family Jewels – Whatever You Call Them, Do Your Self-Exam!“
And in the land of awesome:
- Check out this amazing gender-bending meme, where famous men’s faces were Photoshopped onto women’s bodies. (Richard Gere and Jack Black look rather elegant!)
- And following up on Tuesday’s guest post by the Oh Face on the Skene’s gland, we’re happy to announce that Dave will be posting monthly on the Feronia Project throughout 2013. (And he had some nice things to say about us, too.)
- By the way: if you’re interested in a long-term guest posting gig on the Feronia Project, e-mail me at eleanor [at] feroniaproject [dot] org; we’d be happy to talk with you!
