Link’n’Blogs – 6.3.16 – Feminists and Ghostbusters

I loved Lincoln Logs when I was a kid. Though I never entertained the idea that I would be a designer, engineer or architect, something about putting together these wooden and plastic pieces was simply simple fun. Connecting to ideas through the blogosphere seems similar to this pursuit, hence the title of this weekly post. Each Friday, I intend to post something interesting I’ve read out there on the internets. Hopefully others will find these posts as thought provoking as I have.

I’ll put it out there: I am a feminist and have been for most of my “thinking” life. I am at once fascinated by and repelled by the “dialogue” – if we can call it that – in this country aabout women and the ways they are talked about and treated. Events on a broad scale (the US presidential election) and on a close-to-home scale (events occuring in the school my daughter attended and at which my wife works) have really gotten my antennae up on this. Oh, and Ghostbusters. Have you been paying attention to the reactions to the new Ghostbusters? Whatever is going on here, it’s about more than just the movie. Jef Rouner of the Houston Post has written on the subject this week. Very interesting stuff.

If Only Feminists Saw the New Ghostbusters, It Would Still Be a Smash Hit
