Snippets of awesome

Despite February being a short month, Fuckpoliteness has a huge and FABULOUS Down Under Feminists Carnival up! This is our 22nd carnival and still going strong. Go and check out what local feminists have had to say about Tony Abbott, Muslim feminism, reproductive justice, blended families, child support, living with mental illness, education for disabled students, gender norms, arsevertising, the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer, rejecting US-centrism and more.


Anna has a post over at FWD/Forward (Feminists with Disabilities) with a few videos of people singing in sign. The Auslan vid is this one of a woman signing Truly Madly Deeply. It’s stunning beautiful. Check out the rest.


Gummy shark jelly. Just because.

And lastly, fossils! Fossils of AWESOME. Ed Yong has the low-down on a fossil of a snake caught in the act of trying to eat a newly-hatched titanosaur in its nest.
