The roll out of our FOOD/LAND Issue continues: this week Alison Hugill wrote about feminism and the commons, Natalie Childs talked about doing what you love and exploitative labour practices and policies in organic farming, Kim Bosch gave us some great insights into the food we eat alone, and Rebecca Roher drew a comic about one possible future for foodKeep watching our Facebook and Twitter for new articles as they’re released next week!

Our thoughts are with Beirut, Baghdad, Paris, as well as those cities and countries subjected to violence of a similar scale and beyond all too frequently. We want to acknowledge lives that have been lost and support those working towards a way out of this state of constant war. Love to everyone affected by these ongoing atrocities.

  • “The default for avoiding discussion of racism is to invoke a separate principle, one with which few would disagree in the abstract—free speech, respectful participation in class—as the counterpoint to the violation of principles relating to civil rights. This is victim-blaming with a software update, with less interest in the kind of character assassination we saw deployed against Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown than in creating a seemingly right-minded position that serves the same effect.” On race and the free-speech diversion
  • “Grimes is unabashedly, eagerly feminine, and she wields that power like a blade, thrusting back at a world that prickles at her authority. Many people hear anger on Art Angels. Though there’s aggression here, what comes through strongest for me is Grimes answering her critics with a love letter to herself.” Thanks for this great piece on Art Angels and internalized misogyny, Caitlin White!
  • “I am hoping that you will not ignore the history of sex worker-led initiatives to have their voices heard in decisions that concern their safety, their well-being, and their own lives. Sex workers are the real experts and if we are going to engage in a legislative process that will directly affect their lives, then their lived experiences and realities should be at the center of the discussions.” DEAR MINISTER WILSON-RAYBOULD via Kwe Today.
  • A terrifying but very good Maisonneuve piece on a risky but common surgery and the inequities of women’s health.
  • The first line of this article spoiled the Good Wife for me, but if you aren’t still in season four, I’ve heard it’s a very good read.
  • Always bring a book with you just in case you want to troll Trump.
  • Exit music: WTF, obviously.
