Happy Memorial Day Weekend, Disruptors. Go play outside. Seriously, I’ll wait. The internet will still be here when you get back.

Oh, you’re back already. Well, welcome! We have been scouring the internet all week for the badass-est, rage-iest, thought-provokiest writing on feminism that’s not written by us. Tell us about what you’ve been reading in the comments!

  • Kicking it off with friend of the blog Ambidancetrous: Why telling people they have the option to switch roles is not enough. We followed it up with some ideas on how to normalize nontraditional roles for beginners: Use gender neutral language. Have intermediates on hand to jump in as the other role during the lesson. Dance the nontraditional role as a teacher. Do drills as both lead and follow before picking a role.

“As a wise man once said in a very complex song-and-dance number involving puppets, Doctor Who is about the triumph of intellect and romance over brute force and cynicism. Kissing people when they don’t want to be kissed is nothing if not the triumph of brute force, and it sure ain’t romantic. This Doctor is always telling us what’s cool. You know what’s cooler than all the bowties, fezzes, and Stetsons in the universe? Consent.” CAUTION: SPOILERS EVERYWHERE.

Doctor Who always conforms to my feminist values, right?
