So, this week, if you missed it, I did a very serious piece on the misuse of Federal stimulus money. You can read it here, and read the beginning of it over in emo_snal's lj here. I highly recommend reading his FIRST.

I also helped hug_machine with her post, which was so incredibly awesome. You can read that one here. It is about KITTENS, and SCIENCE!

Here are some of my favorites from this week. I'm trying to pick out people I haven't recced too much in the past.

battle_kitten wrote a modernized take on Robin Hood which I thought was very clever.

furzicle wrote a story of a jaded private school principal who finds herself considering money before kids.

imafarmgirl wrote about the different types of people who need disabilities services, and how the people who demand the most services aren't always the people who really need them.

impoetry wrote about having to come out as a heterosexual.

intrepia wrote about how the physiological inequality of sex informs the sociological.

markmade and comedychick wrote about the important lessons we learn from television. wrote from the perspective of a parent, markmade wrote from the perspective of a snarky snarky blogger.

pricelessone also wrote on the subject of the lessons learned from television. I actually felt like hers almost made an even better counter to comedychick's, because it's about the lessons she learned from TV growing up.

m_malcontent wrote a really beautiful vignette of tragedy and mental illness and human kindness.

rivermirage wrote about a Craigslist romance.

Take a look at these, and then if you have some time, give a vote to the ones you like (and to me and my intersection buddy, emo_snal)

having to come out as a heterosexual
Seriously? SERIOUSLY?

He's not even the first person I've heard a story like this from! I had a good friend in college who had basically been raised with the assumption that he was gay (by two mothers, believe it or not, which you would think would mean they were more aware that fitting a physical stereotype didn't make you a gay man) who had a coming out party in college where he explained to all of us that he had realized he was straight at the age of 20.

Except to claim "coming out" for a heterosexual person -- regardless of circumstances -- is appropriative and harmful. IDEFK. D:

We enjoyed many of the same entries. :)

Thanks for the rec, Tea. I wasn't really expecting that.

Thanks for the rec! I think it's my first.
