So it turns out that when I decide not to blog regularly anymore, I really meant that I was going to bore other websites with my rambling instead of my own. I’ve been posting intermittently on the fabulous Canada.Com for the past few months, under the careful editorial hand of Mr. William Wolfe-Wylie (who, incidentally, has a ridiculously awesome name), and it just occurred to me that it would make sense to mention that on this blog as well.
Anyway, here are the things I’ve written for them in the past little while, if you’re interested:
- On Quvenzhané Wallis, Marissa Mayer, and Intersectionality in Feminism
- On Massively Open Online Courses and the misguided techno-utopian ideal that they will solve everything (an edited version of this post)
- On the crazy way pregnant women seem to lose their status as anything other than person-with-baby-inside the moment they get knocked up, featuring Kate Middleton.
- On online communities that foster harm to the young adults that use them (such as pro-anorexia Tumblr blogs), and why tech policy is hard.
- On the Madonna/Whore complex, and how that just gets intensified by social media
- On the racist dogwhistle that is the GOP’s preoccupation with in-person voter fraud
I’ve really enjoyed writing for them, since I look at things that I might not have looked at otherwise, and having an editor for the first time since my brief stint with Millennials Mag* forever ago is always a good addition to my workflow. Go check it out!
*Come to think of it, all those articles are now unavailable. I should…post them somewhere. Like….a blog, or something. If only I had one of those.
