(Thanks again to smbmarketingguide.com for this image.) Last time I focused on the links between murder mysteries and food in the blogosphere. Thought I would remind us we live in a land of politics, feminism, and queer (lesbian) topics as well. Here are a few sites to check out on each of these:
Politics and Food: Yep, still matters. Maybe even more after the results in Massachusetts and the ongoing health care debacle. (Yes, health care is about food.) Keep an eye out on Marion Nestle's blog, Food Politics to know what is what. Really, It's important. Not sure who she is? Click here. And for more, check out this "Top 10" list of food and politics sites. Both Nestle's blog and one of my humorous faves (which has a serious side to it), Obamafoodrama appear on the list, but there are 8 more we should all know about.
Feminism and Food: Yes, all those political sites I just cited (watch that homonym attack) should attend to feminism. After all, even idiots know that women are now more than 50% of the work force in the US. But, still, given realities of life, it is crucial to keep this concern for women's lives out there when food and water access are crucial for women globally. Not sure the food crisis globally is about women? Try clicking here. Or try this article. Or this one. And if you think this is unrelated, say, to hiv./AIDS. try this pdf (though it is from 2006): programs.ifpri.org/renewal/pdf/icadtoronto.pdf.
Not to mention a new fave: a site which thinks harpyness is good. Try it. Release your inner harpy.
Lesbian/Queer Matters (and Food?): For some silliness, check out this video of how to make a lesbian joy cocktail. And no, this is NOT a joke. (Might it refer to the island of Lesbos? NO clue.) And here is a great lgbtq manners commentary. What does it mean that all North American lesbians know about the potluck jokes?
And a few more featuring (gasp) religion: Here's a feminist mormon blog where someone says the election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts ushered in the apocalypse for exactly the right reasons. And this irreverent site which pokes fun at the food pyramid/gay conspiracy theme (here's the site's home page.) And yes, the site is Anglican. Hmmm. Am I on a religion kick here? Check out anotherqueerjewishbuddhist on food (and drink) and the home page.
Finally, truly finally, one truly irrelevant and silly site: here. It entertained me, even though I am not truly sophisticated enough to get (read like) Monty Python. Maybe it will entertain you.
