Links roundup

Lashings of Ginger BeerPosted by Lashings of Ginger Beer

Welcome to the weekly Lashings links round up! Feel free to add your own links in the comments, with a brief description and trigger warnings if appropriate.

Really thought-provoking post about racism and white privilege in feminist organisations. Like the song says, we know our class and ethnic make-up needs more diversity - but what are we doing about it?

Bird of Paradox on the proposed inclusion of "Transvestic Disorder" as a diagnostic category for the 5th Edition of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. There is a petition to remove this category, which "needlessly stigmatizes people who engage in harmless gender-diverse behavior".

Material Woman, the first episode of A Show of Our Own, a new weekly podcast "by, for, and about women, and the issues that affect our lives". The inaugural episode considers "the impact of resources on women’s lives: money, time, a sense of self, or knowledge. Are some of these resources more important than others? How does a lack of knowledge, money, time, and self, affect women as individuals, and as a class?"
