The best of the rest of the internet

If you read one thing this weekend, make it Ian Parker’s very long, but very excellent analysis of the events leading up to gay teen Tyler Clementi’s suicide in 2010. I’m cutting it out and keeping it for my “awesome journalism of the kind I hope to someday produce” file. (The New Yorker)

College student Brittany Molina was passed a note advising her to “consider that what you’re wearing has a negative effect on men” this Valentine’s Day when she dared to step onto campus wearing a knee-length dress, leggings and a cardigan. (Footage Not Found)

Exhile in Gal-ville: the Atlantic takes on the Hugo Schwyzer versus the feminist blogosphere fight that dominated my January web browsing. Great subject matter, wish it had been tackled with more depth (or perhaps just different emphasis). (The Atlantic)

When did TED stop trying to collect smart people and instead collect people trying to be smart? (The New Inquiry)

I talk to the ladies at Feminaust about how I came to feminism “through words”. (Feminaust)
