Quickies: #Masculinitysofragile, my uterus is not a tech leader, Black Panther, and Happy Birthday is free

  • #Masculinitysofragile highlights toxic masculinity’s weak points – “Perhaps one of the most egregious effects of the fragility of masculinity is in how when men’s advances are rejected, it’s almost expected of them to react violently. There’s this requirement to lash out verbally or even physically at whoever’s rejected them.”
  • What my uterus can teach you about being a tech leader – “Spoiler alert: my uterus doesn’t have much to say on the matter of technology and how it can improve people’s lives, though my brain has quite a bit to offer.
    The same is true for all the other women who have leadership roles in the tech industry. So why is it that when women get up on stage at tech conferences, the conversation so often turns to child-rearing, pregnancy, and “work/life balance”?”
  • Ta-Nehisi Coates to write Black Panther comic for Marvel – “Mr. Coates also has a not-so-secret identity, as evidenced by some of his Atlantic blog posts and his Twitter feed: Marvel Comics superfan. So it seems only natural that Marvel has asked Mr. Coates to take on a new Black Panther series set to begin next spring.”
  • Happy Birthday is finally free – From mrmisconception. Also listen to the Mad Art Lab podcast about this!
