BARCC Updates

Online activism for today

Hello all,

Sorry it’s been a little while since I’ve posted something - I just finished my first semester exams and I can finally be a real boy again, hopefully.  Shira’s been keeping everyone busy with good questions about Julian Assange, which is like pretty close to every sexual violence activists’ favorite subject right now.  It perfectly illustrates so many of the issues we talk about!  Media, power, and how rape is considered a ‘woman’s issue’ - it all fits this Assange story really well.

I’m still coming out of my exam-induced stupor, so you’ll have to wait another week for the standard, way-too-long and tortured metaphors you’ve come to expect from me, but I wanted to get this on everyone’s radar: Sady Doyle’s twitter campaign against Michael Moore, on behalf of survivors.  It sounds weird when I type that, but check it out.

Sady’s piece is probably one of the best excoriations of male-driven progressive spaces I’ve ever read.  Seriously, check it out.
