"The women of Bikini Kill let guitarist Billy Karren be in their feminist punk band, but only if he's willing to just "do some shit." Being a feminist dude is like that. We may ask you to "do some shit" for the band, but you don't get to be Kathleen Hannah."--@heatherurehere

Linky Goodness: Conversations to Be Had

Cara over at The Curvature has a great post up about the possible inclusion of men more often in discussions about reproductive rights, in which she sums up a complex situation (we've got MRA's complaining "What about the MENZ!" as well as abortion clinics excluding men even when those women want their men to be in the room for the abortion procedure, for instance)concisely. I recommend going to check it out.

And Roy over at No Cookies for Me applies his clear thinking to the ways in which feminists (and other bloggers) tend to argue around issues that are dear to their hearts--unfortunately, we tend to do it with a lot of anger and dismissiveness. Roy gives us a few ideas as to why.

Of course, you're all probably already reading The Curvature and No Cookies for Me, but hey, I've got a busy morning.
