Hi all. Obviously, I’ve only been posting here once or twice a month. I have to admit, the economy and other political/sociological issues have been occupying my time. As a result, I have been posting much more on my other blog, Speak Truth to Power, as well as the group blog I contribute to, The Reaction. So check it out! But I do plan to keep on writing about gender and sexuality, as I have been, albeit not as much as I’d like. And I have plenty in the “to write on” column! I’ve been saving posts for things I’m really passionate about or that I have the time to provide adequate and unique critique. Thanks for sticking with me!

I’ve had several pieces I have wanted to write that don’t really fit on this blog, with its theme of gender and sexuality and cultural production. A few of them have been my last few posts. So I started a new blog. It’s called Speak Truth to Power, and it will have pieces that are more socially and politically minded, with a focus on institutional inequality. After my Master’s Thesis, which as I’ve written before, was a theory-focused, cross-institutional analysis of marriage in the United States, and now teaching Sociology has reawakened the social theorist and critic in me. So alas, a new blog for lindabeth. My goal is for weekly posting on each, although with all the prep work for my classes done after this term is over, hopefully next term I’ll be able to write several times each week.

As I just wrote about this very topic, I stumbled on an opportunity to voice your experiences and opinions about street harassment for a new book on the topic. Please take a few minutes to participate!

I went away for a few days (some excellent weather, great wine-tasting, and refreshing swimming and hiking near Cayuga Lake!), and as a result, I am really behind on my RSS reader. I’m going to take the next few days to catch up, and I want to be able to respond to comments, so I won’t be able to writing any of the 20+ new posts I have in mind (!) for the next few days.
Since my readership has grown a bit in then last 2 months, I thought I’d take this opportunity to draw your attention to some older posts that you likely will not have read. Also, you can check out my “Smart Past Posts” on the sidebar. (I won’t duplicate here any posts I have listed there).

After reading this post on The Feminist Underground, I had to see what my blog rated.
So I know this is goofy and automatically generating, but how it works still says a lot.
This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words:
sex (8x)rape (4x)breast (3x)bitch (2x)libido (1x)
Seriously? Not by my occasional use of the word “fuck” or writing about porn?
Geez, at least “lesbian” or “queer” didn’t contribute to it’s rating like it does in real life.

I’m totally obsessed with witty t-shirts. And I’ve been so pissed about this recent upskirt thing, and I really liked my post title, so I decided to make a t-shirt out of it. Hence, my new Spreadshirt Shop (a.k.a. time-waster for an evening).
My shop is called “Speak Truth to Power” (one of my favorite phrases!) and the address is:
And my first design is:
Believe me, I have way more slogans in my head, so I’ll add more as I have the chance. But I wanted to make one and buy one right now, so I thought I’d put together a shop! All (minor) proceeds go to fund my humble blog.

Hi all. I noticed that my delicious links haven’t been posting daily to my blog like they are supposed to. I am trying to figure out what is going on, but in the meantime, I will “catch up” on the bookmarked posts for this past week a little every day until they’re caught up.
Also, I will be putting a “RSS feed” of my delicious links/recommended reading on my side bar. Alternatively, you can subscribe to my delicious links in a feed reader.
Bear with me as I try to figure it out!
Have a great weekend!
