Link’n’Blogs – 10.20.17: Be A Better Male Feminist – NOW


Related Content from And There Came A Day


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.

My good friend, The Magister (who looks very little like Benedict Cumberbatch),  pointed a group of like-minded men to this article and I encourage reading it. Let us be better. Let us do better. Let us expand our understanding of who we are and how we treat one another.

And let us do it, now.

Polarization. It is a real problem and I am more than certain that I am a part of it. I want to avoid echo chambers, but gravitate towards those who think as I do. I want to be a part of a dialogue that helps and does not hurt, but I am all too likely to stop listening to someone when what the are espousing does not line up with my beliefs. I want to get better.

A friend from high school posted the article Facts Don’t Change People’s Minds. Here’s What Does from heleo.com a couple weeks back and it got me thinking about how better to approach changing people’s minds (or my own).

Two weeks in a row, Link’n’Blog finds itself featuring an article about kneeling at football games. This one from The Washington Post features the two most famous football kneelers: Colin Kaepernick and Tim Tebow.

It is ABSOLUTELY worth your time.

Link’n’Blogs – 9.22.17: Health Care Experts Weigh In

I am not a health care expert. I am terrified of what is happening to health care in this country. I am trying to get educated. I am trying to get active. I am trying to get involved.

One group I listen to on healthcare issues are the people who are the actual experts. This article from vox.com lays out what they are saying and why we should be actively opposed to what is happening in Washington.

I mean, I read this and have no idea how else I am supposed to respond…

Consider this Link’n’Blog a preview for a week-long count down to Star Trek: Discovery. If the new show is as good as the theme, we are in for something special.
