Linkspam: Doctor Who, Iain Duncan Smith, and not-so-equal marriage

Lashings of Ginger Bee TimerPosted by Lashings of Ginger Beer Time

What is wrong with Doctor Who? takes a good hard look at inherent sexism, and brushes on the topic of inherent colonialism.

The Work & Pensions Select Committee has launched an inquiry into Iain Duncan Smith's (mis)use of statistics. HURRAY.

The ever-fantastic Jane Fae has written a piece for the New Statesman entitled Gender and consent: trans is not deception.

Bisexual MP - and deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats - has stated that "marriage is between a man and a woman." For shame.

In Avengers comics-'verse, the new Captain Britain is a hijabi lady!

Kameron Hurley: We Have Always Fought: Challenging the 'Women, Cattle and Slaves' Narrative:
I’m going to tell you a story about llamas. It will be like every other story you’ve ever heard about llamas: how they are covered in fine scales; how they eat their young if not raised properly; and how, at the end of their lives, they hurl themselves – lemming-like- over cliffs to drown in the surging sea... Every story you hear about llamas is the same.
Nine Worlds, London's new geeky convention that a few Lashers are involved in running, is coming to the end of its early tickets deadline. They're running full tracks for geeky feminism and queer fandom, and you might even catch Lashings at the queer feminist cabaret!
