I am starting a completely unoriginal blog series. Just like Rachel Held Evans writes Sunday Superlatives every week, I will occasionally (weekly if I don't get busy/lazy) share the best of what I've read each week.
I already routinely tweet or share to facebook articles/blog posts on virginity, feminism, rape culture, etc. But I know not all of my blog readers have liked my facebook page or followed me on twitter. Plus I sometimes get really excited and share a dozen links all at once, and I know that can be overwhelming! So this weekly summary will be a shortlist of the very best, according to MOI, that you can easily bookmark for later and read at your leisure.
I should also add that sometimes I discover content well after it's been posted, so just because I share it as the best I've read this week doesn't mean it was written in the last week.
Without any further ado, here are my inaugural Sunday Shoutouts!
Most Entertaining: Hands down, the "Spell Block Tango" is the best video I've watched all week. My love of Disney combined with my love of Broadway means Todrick Hall's Disney version of the "Cell Block Tango" is perfect for me.
Most Educational: Confused about hymens? Me too! There's so much misinformation out there about women's bodies and first sexual experiences. This blog post covers ten common hymen myths.
Best Scary Halloween Post: Jezebel asked readers to submit their scariest true stories and then picked the best ten. I'm glad I read these stories in the middle of the afternoon and not at night!
Best Historical Halloween Post: One of my all-time favorite feminist writers is Soraya Chemaly. In her article "What witches have to do with women's health," she ties together historical and modern misogyny in the field of medicine.
