Weekend Links, Vol. 42: Happy (White, Cis, Corporate, Male) Pride?

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.

Quote of the Week

“So, transform yourself first…Because you are young and have dreams and want to do something meaningful, that in itself, makes you our future and our hope. Keep expanding your horizon, decolonize your mind, and cross borders”

Kyle Albert

Kyle spends most of their time thinking about how feminism and queerness intersect with everything else in their life. When they’re not blogging for bluestockings, talking about structural violence, or avoiding jogging at all costs, they study Gender and Sexuality Studies and Sociology at Brown University. They’re not quite sure where their life is heading, but if it ends up involving tea, gummy bears, crewneck sweatshirts, and some sort of work towards collective liberation, they think they’ll be pretty okay with it. They tweet (sometimes angrily) at @KyleAlbert.
