Each week while I am researching for posts and just goofing off, I find some interesting links. Sometimes they are funny, sometimes serious, sometimes they are just weird. Here are four links I found interesting this week.
Lady Parts Justice
I found Lady Parts Justice after seeing this video of Sarah Silverman (one of my faves!) having a conversation with Jesus. I laughed a lot through the video but it’s about a serious subject… Women’s rights. This isn’t just about the abortion issue either. Here is a blurb from Lady Parts Justice:
Women are not faking rape and they don’t have magical powers to deactivate rape sperm. We are not pregnant before we are pregnant, we can’t have an abortion if we are not pregnant, and I think we can all agree, women shouldn’t be forced to carry stillborn babies. Abortions don’t cause mental instability and the HPV vaccine doesn’t make girls mentally retarded. No woman’s boss should be able to demand information from her to decide if her reason for wanting birth control is moral enough to grant permission.
The bold words are my doing because on the site, each of those has links to news articles. These are real laws and issues we women are dealing with. Click here to check out the site and let me know what you think.
As the boys and I learn American Sign Language, one of the things we needed to learn was the difference between ASL, Signed English, and Cued Speech. I hadn’t heard of cued speech before. We found this video interesting because it explains what it is. I think I’ll stick to ASL, but this was neat to see.
