Many people warned me that I would have to abandon my google reader or even *gasp* facebook (not sure which one would be more traumatic to me) when I started law school. That I’m still keeping up with the news is probably not a miracle, and more likely a product of how I choose to spend my free time. I’m also lucky to have lots of friends who share links with me (or at least post them on newsfeeds), so I haven’t really missed anything too significant. (though there was an embarrassing moment when I thought the upcoming rally to “Restore Sanity” was hosted by Glenn Beck as a follow up to the 8-28 “restoring honor” rally. I was swiftly corrected by the Jon Stewart devotees in my early morning crim law class the day after the announcement…but now I’m kinda proud of my immediate association.) I hope you’ll forgive me, therefore, that some of these links are a lil old.

Catharine MacKinnon’s name doesn’t usually sit well with me, but this piece on feminist jurisprudence which was cited in my Crim Law textbook is actually pretty neat.

Glad I’m not the only one who was kinda surprised by the whole Franzen fervor (especially in a feminist context).

This list reminded me how much I love non-fiction essays (and how much I miss reading the physical Sunday Magazine and New Yorker).

While watching Teen Mom (yea, I said it) a few weeks back, I saw this commercial for the first time in a while. And I sort of liked it at first. Until she says, “You should buy the same tampons as me,” poking fun at feminine product companies…and then tries to sell me her product. I can’t really sort out my ideas on it, so read this.

Some creepy new technology in which ads (and art) can track your gaze.

Aaaand the dance moves that women find attractive. Personally, they’re both pretty bizarre, and hopefully women and men alike will reevaluate their preferences.
