Odds and Ends to Start the Week

June 21, 2010

INCITE! reports that FIERCE, “a membership-based organization building the leadership and power of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) youth of color in New York City” is looking for a new Executive Director.  Check out the job posting here.

In Sexist Beatdown this week, Sady and Amanda deliver the best Ayn Rand satire ever.

La Macha at VivrLatin@ calls bullshit on the idea that it’s wrong to criticize U.S. immigration policy because things are sooo much worse in Mexico.

Philosopher/feminist/famous person Judith Butler publicly refuses to accept an hono(u)r from Berlin Pride in protest of the group’s racism/anti-Muslim sentiment.

Feministing has a helpful breakdown of the difference between the terms lesbian, bi, and queer (thanks Baruch and Roll!).

And finally, I’m now–fashionably late, of course–on twitter.  You can follow me @bullstonecraft, where I will update you on the blog, my gyno appointments, and other tweet-appropriate randomness (i.e., not an execution).
