Carnival of Feminists #65

Maria Brumm hosts the latest Carnival of Feminists:
Welcome to the 65th biweekly showcase of the feminist blogosphere! Here’s just a taste of what’s inside:
- Owning privilege is not about feeling ashamed, it is about acknowledging the benefits that one receives without having to work for them.
- And now today an excited colleague announced that he had just discovered this totally new concept on the internet: white privilege! Even though I’ve been teaching the idea for over a decade, and it’s even discussed in our textbook, it was news to him.
- Not a lesbian, not homosexual, but ‘gay’ with such venom I swear her eyes turned red, smoke came charging out of her ears and she was probably trying to get god to strike me down to hell where I stood.
Given that, one would have to wonder, what would a chimp do with human breasts?
