Quickies: Victors still write history, #ILookLikeAnEngineer, and the wild feminist

  • Black American lives are being erased. The victors still write history – “The policeman who killed Michael Brown gets more sympathetic coverage than the dead teenager did, and let’s not even get started on Cecil the lion.” From Ray.
  • The Feminist in the Wild – Excellent cartoon video written by feminist blogger Anne Thériault. From Holly.
  • Reddit finally bans its most infamous racist communities – “Huffman announced that CoonTown, probably Reddit’s most notorious racist community, was officially banned from the site, as of today — a reversal from his original position that it would stay on Reddit, merely quarantined away.” From Amy.
  • Sexist reactions to an ad spark #ILookLikeAnEngineer campaign – “The hashtag, which was generating thousands of responses and tweets Tuesday, grew out of Wenger’s post at the Medium website, in which she described what must have been a frustrating experience: agreeing to be one of her tech company’s highlighted workers for a recruiting campaign — only to see many people question whether she actually works there as an engineer.” From Mary.
