A Bunch Of Good Links To Read

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 8.442% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

Here’s some nice articles that have made me do the thinky-thing as of late:
The First Meditation on Privilege” – Squid314, not quite happy with the metaphor used in my “Would You Like A Cup Of Coffee?” line, uses another metaphor to try to get across how annoying it can be to constantly be hit on by men.  His metaphor has problems (as does mine), but it’s also an effective way of trying to get across another experience.
The Omniscient Breasts” – a rather fascinating unpacking of what the male gaze is, and how it affects fiction, to the point where writing from the female gaze becomes seen as homosexual.
I Am Not A Puzzle Box” – In which Naamah Darling does an excellent analysis/addition to someone else’s post on women’s sexuality and nice guys.  Includes the boffo line: “To him, women are sex and sex is a prize. Prizes don’t get to give themselves away.” (Also, check out her Indiegogo campaign.)
