Jill at Feministe on anti-abortion extremism and disingenuous rhetoric. Long but compelling.

Barista looks at the Israel-Hezbollah-Lebanon situation and the Australian reaction.

Echidne of the Snakes examines the partisan demonisation of secularism in the USA.

Blogger on the Cast-Iron Balcony responds to criticism of the Left from fellow-leftie Flute.

Paul at Two Peas, No Pod has a piece that’s superficially about public transport in Canberra, but is more deeply a global predicament.

Addendum: Pandagon’s Amanda wades into some sites for “players” regarding speed seduction techniques based on cynical psych-outs and neurolinguistic programming. Any woman still on the dating scene should read it and some of the sites linked in comments, such as this and this, so you can tell when some pick-up artist is trying the techniques out on you. I’m annoyed to realise that I totally fell for “the familiar approach” one time. No wonder that was an unsatisfying encounter – he was more interested in gaming me than really talking with me.

  1. I think calling it criticism is giving flute’s incoherent rant a little too much credit. I don’t usually write political blogs, but even I felt compelled to respond.

  2. Oh well DQ, I’m playing nice today. Flute’s a provocateur, granted.

  3. You might want to check the link to 2 peas, no pod – something going haywire there – unless it’s my browser or something.(Helen Balcony- no relation to Bernice)

  4. Thank you Helen – I inadvertently c&p’d the trackback instead of the permalink. Doh. Should be fixed now.
