Weekly Awesome 5.8

May 8, 2013

~TIAW on Pinterest and Tumblr.
~A review I wrote over at SOAM about the new documentary Birth Story which is about Ina May Gaskin and the midwives of the Farm.
~I shared this comic on Tumblr, but there’s more to the story over at Epbot.
~Dooce writes about Mental Health Awareness Month. I remember a time in my life where things were very hard for me, and I was entirely unsupported because my depression and crippling anxiety were not understood. Really, I’d have given anything to feel better. Mental illness isn’t, like, this fun thing we do because we’re lazy (that would be Netflix). Share this post so that maybe one more person can understand it.
~I want this on a t-shirt.
~My daughter has never been into dolls and I’m too old for the American Girls doll trend so I’m largely oblivious to them. But I did notice the books at the library the other day and something in the back of my mind was disappointed. For one thing, there seems to be a recent explosion of new girls’s stories, and I wondered where they fit into history, and how they could possibly be quality when there was so much quantity. Also, they seemed to be far pinker. In terms of covers. DEAR GOD IN HEAVEN, why must everything for girls be PINK? I read those books as a kid and LOVED THEM. And they were off-white. So THERE. Anyway. I digress. I guess I wasn’t alone in noticing this.
