Welcome to another week of feminist web surfing! In Weekend Links we gather a set of the most engaging journalism, prose, poetry, art, and Interweb images or memes we have come across. We hope with this small curation of links to illuminate the work of the prolific and active feminist blogosphere.

Feminist Blog Roll
“This is a queer blog, not in that it exists to serve the TLBG community exclusively, but in that it takes a queer stance towards all systems of oppression and normativity: gender, class, race, global capitalism, privatized education, etc. Posts may be written in English, Spanish, ballroom slang, hood speak, and academic jargon, but all languages and dialects are welcome. While I recognize the problems and complications of cyber-activism, I hope that this blog will be a means of sharing radical information and ideas, of sparking conversation, and will be seen not as an end in itself, but as a precursor for action.” –Radical Faggot
Quote (Tweet?) of the Week
Polite reminder for straight people who say "who cares" when someone comes out: such gestures are addressed to lonely queer kids. not you.

Art Worth Sharing
“‘Indigurrito‘ is Bustamante’s contribution to the many performances that commemorated the 500 anniversary of the conquest of America. The title mixes the term ‘indigenous’ with ‘burrito’, the name of the famous Mexican wrap. In the performance, Bustamante challenged the white men in the audience to go onstage to express their apologies for the years of oppression of indigenous peoples by eating a piece of a burrito that Bustamante had strapped on to her hips.”
