Recommended Reading #191: Advocating Progress



      “I Haven’t Had An Abortion, But I Would” by Jessica Wakeman (Health and Body, Reproductive Rights, Abortion, Memoir, Sociology) 2/26/14

This resonates with me so much. I have never really been in a position where I truly felt concern that I was pregnant, but I have realized that if I were, and I chose to have an abortion (which I feel I would, though I allow for the understanding that we don’t always know what we would do until/unless we are actually in a position in question), I would have relatively easy access to one financially, socially, and logistically/geographically. I severely dislike that that is not the case for everyone, and I too aspire to do what I can to contribute to a shift so that it is.

      “Dale Hansen Unplugged: Celebrating our differences” (Sexual Orientation, Professional Sports, Sex and Culture) 2/10/14

Important message, and I’m glad to see it coming from a professional sportscaster.

      “I’m Finally Revealing My Name and Face As the Duke Porn Star” by Belle Knox (Sex Work, Pornography, Sex and Culture, Feminism) 3/4/14

Like the last piece I recommended from her (by “Lauren A.”), I see this piece as a simple “FUCK YES.” I deplore the treatment she has allegedly received from different factions. I appreciate and frankly admire the articulateness, thoughtfulness, and awareness with which she has responded.
