Bloggers Who Make You Think
Essin’ Em from Essin’ Em: Sexuality Happens is putting together a list of bloggers who make you think. She’s currently taking nominations here.
Reblogged from Essin’ Em: Sexuality Happens:
I’m creating a list. A list of sex, relationship, LGBTQ, kink, social justice, feminist, humanist bloggers who have put up at least one post that has made you stop for a moment and think. Perhaps it was about sex and gender, or about your views of relationships, or some privilege you have that you hadn’t realized that you had yet. It can be anything that made you think, analyse, re-examine, say “oh!” — whatever it is that made you stop for a moment and step outside of your own view of the world.
Often, sex bloggers get boxed into a, well, a box. We’re suppoed to write reviews, erotica, and post pictures. Lots of people who are called “sex bloggers” don’t even identify as such. However, just because someone isn’t writing about the sex they are having, but rather about navigating relationships, combating sexual violence or struggling with gender, this doesn’t mean they they aren’t an amazing blogger that can really make you think.
This list is for all bloggers who write in the field of sexuality and social justice. When posted, it will not have a numberical order — rather, it will just be in alphabetical order, because I don’t know how you can really judge the quality of someone’s writing, as everyone has such a different style.
The few rules:
*Please don’t nominate yourself.
*Blog must have at least 15 posts on it, preferrably at least 6 months old (younger blogs often disappear, and then many of the list links are dead).
*Please comment with: The blog URL, the blogger’s online name, and at least ONE link to a post that made you think. You don’t need to explain why, but please include at least one think-worthy post.
*You can nominate up to 10 bloggers. Please do one comment per blogger, for ease of actually creating the list.
*Bloggers must be somehow related to the fields of sex, sexuality, relationships, parenting, kink, poly, monogamy, social justice, equality, etc.
You have until November 30th at 11:59pm to nominate. Feel free to post about this on your blog, tweet/facebook about it, ask to be nominated, just remember that you cannot nominate yourself. Please grab the button above (made by the AMAZING Dangerous Lilly) — just please host it yourself (thanks!).
And so it begins…
Besides the fact that I think you can actually judge the quality of people’s writing even when there are so many different styles out there, I think it’s a pretty good idea. To be clear, nominations are made in the comment section on Essin’ Em’s blog and not on Cuntlove. What are you waiting for? Go. Nominate someone who makes you think. It’s definitely a good way to discover new people or spread the word about your personal favorites.
Now, I just have to think about who I’m going to nominate.
