I wrote a post about the École Polytechnique massacre and National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women at Persephone. It’s a tough topic, but it’s important to keep talking about it, even though it’s been 22 years.
I’m currently up to my third eye in studying for an exam (fingers crossed — it’s tomorrow!), but I am hoping to start posting here again in the foreseeable future. I haven’t forgotten about you guys!
It’s Tuesday afternoon, so I’ve got a post up a Persephone. This week it’s the omnibus crime bill — nine questionable pieces of legislation conveniently rolled into one! We’re hustling it through Parliament to pass the costs directly on to you! Limited time offer — only on the table for two short days!
Okay, so my future as an over the top sales lady is perhaps dim, but if you’re curious why I’ve got my shorts in a knot about the bill, check it out here.
It’s been a bit since I put my political hat on around these parts, though that’s not indicative of my level of hat usage in general, and so I’ve now got a weekly Canadian politics column over at Persephone! This week I’ve got a post up about the Ontario election that’s happening on Thursday, and while it’s been a total snoozefest for the most part, it’s not been totally uneventful. I’m hoping for a Liberal minority and a Liberal-NDP coalition (oh noez! I used the C word!), and fortunately that’s not looking improbable at this point. Have a read, and then let me know, Ontarians — who’re you voting for and why?
The lovely S. of Narrowly Tailored just had an adorable daughter! A little while ago she asked for guest posts about transitions, and yours truly wrote a post about manufacturing a transition when you’re tilting at windmills that look suspiciously like Area of Study model data. Curious what I’m on about? Head over and have a read.
I forgot to mention this on the blog yesterday (though I did on The Twitter — are you following us yet? You should be! We’re just as charming there as we are here and sometimes I get bored at school and tweet all afternoon), but I wrote up a review of a pair of silicone pasties I got for bosom smoothing purposes. Curious? Understandably so!
If any of you’re interested in what I have to say about the public and private discourse of menstruation, it’s your lucky day, because I’ve got a post up at Persephone this afternoon on just that! Between that and the pole dancing bear, it’s a bit of a grab bag today.
