  1. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) released their “Doing Better For Children” report this week. Lost amongst the overwhelming MSM moral panics about teen drinking and pregnancy was an interesting little factoid.

    Researchers also found little evidence that children brought up in single-parent households were disadvantaged as a result. The report said, with the exception of the US, being raised by single parents only had a “small effect” on health, education and behaviour.

    OECD survey here for those inclined to go data mining.

  2. I left a comment on the blog about women fragmented in art. It’s been a “pet peeve”,
    as the cliche goes (a word I learned in the 1940s and 1950s in Brooklyn, NY) of mine.
    As an artist, I have been making noise about it for the whole 40 plus years of my career. I am a feminist.
    There’s too much to be said about US health care in one comment. I have several
    comments on http://www.notdeadyet.org, which is how I came to this blog site. (And
    thanks, Viv, for help in registering; CFS/ME makes tech learning harder.)
    People in countries where there is single payer (or other forms of health care for all) can’t imagine how bizarre our US system is. (I’m in NYC.)
    It is a delight to find feminists, especially women with disabilities, online and
    around the world.

  3. Thanks for the link (and the great posts to read).
