With all of the attention that we devote to girls and STEM, what about boys and reading?
To my mother and many women like her, Ursela Le Guin was the feminist writer that inspired them.
“When the ship runs out of ocean
And the vessel runs aground
Land’s where we know the boat is found”

Grantland’s Caleb Hannan faces questions about his journalistic ethics as he writes about Essay Anne Vanderbilt, a trans woman working to build a better putter. His ethics may remain intact, but his decency is nowhere to be found.
Lieutenant General William G. “Jerry” Boykin, now with the Family Research Council, wants to be like the Jesus who was a “man’s man,” who had “big, bulging biceps” and “smelled bad.” Nothing is stopping him, but he’s nevertheless concerned with the “feminized” way Jesus often gets portrayed.

In Linky Friday #29, Will highlights a recent column in The Atlantic by Hugo Scwhyzer that asked, “What If Men Stopped Chasing Much-Younger Women?” His argument, that the Old Man/Young Woman relationship dynamic intrinsically harms society, was not received well by commenters, either here or at The Atlantic.

Anyone who’s been watching Game of Thrones has probably seen a trailer for it in the last month, and the pilot finally aired…
Even more of that discussion I can’t believe we’re having. Here I’ll argue that a strict, property-and-contract-only libertarian should still detest the nineteenth century. On his own terms.
I know that this post is going to get me into lots of hot water with a number of guys (which I mean in the most gender neutral way) at the league here whom I deeply respect. Nevertheless, I want to see how far I can run with this. The last time I posted, I raised a…
Among Christmas’s many other attributes, I think you could probably make the case that it is the most intense in its gender divisions. Only Valentine’s Day suggests itself more strongly, but Christmas is when we really do the hard work of imprinting gender on our kids. Consider: Girls’ Toys for Boys. Overheard in Toys R…
This is one of the posts from my other blog that disappeared into the ether with our technical difficulties. It seems to deserve reposting here for a couple of reasons. First, it fits well with “Desire and Deviance,” below, and also with our upcoming discussion of Plato’s Symposium. Second, I think it was just a…
