Blog Block

I've started several rambling posts this week, and have just not been able to hammer them out into readability yet. In the meantime, there have been a lot of interesting things I've read by more capable bloggers.

Kevin Drum looks at a report by the Guttmacher Institute about access to contraceptives in the US, broken down by state. The good news? Idaho is somewhere in the middle, not toward the bottom like I would have guessed. The bad news? All the states could stand to improve.

Scott Lemieux voices a balanced view on the case of the woman who was threatened with being held in contempt of court for not watching a videotape of the rape being prosecuted. Careful, it's about as revolting as a story gets.

Wendy Shalit does a good job of poking holes in her modesty-is-empowering thesis on her own (though I plan on putting up a thorough evisceration soon enough) with this "cute" product, link brought to you by Feministe.
