Lashings of Ginger Bee TimerPosted by Lashings of Ginger Beer Time

Equal marriage is now a thing! If you're all very good this week, you should be seeing some lash-reactions to the news soon but, in the meantime, Peter G Tatchell's super excited about it, Helen Croydon tells us why the idea of traditional marriage isn't all that simple, Sarah Brown details all the ways in which the bill sidelines trans people, while Sarah McAlpine hopes it will provide an opportunity to gain further equality.

Oxfordians, feminists or both may be interested in Womcam's 'I Need Feminism Because...' campaign, which is lovely. Less lovely is the resulting 'I Need Masculism Because...' trending topic on twitter, but thankfully it's been delightfully taken over by more lovely feminists, whose mocking tweets you can see here.

Over at Feministe, Jill's written an interesting piece about occupying the middle ground between intellectually opposing sex work while still fighting for sex-workers rights.

Those of you who enjoyed the over-abundance of Doctor Who (if there is such a thing) in Sasha Rocket's post on Friday may also enjoy taking a look at what it would have been like to have 11 female Doctors.

Finally, our very own, beloved Valentina and Zim are both involved in some super-awesome things, which you can be part of! Valentina's Nine World's Geekfest Kickstarter fund is here, while Zim's Indiegogo fund  for the next album from The Mechanism's is here.
