On Beyond Slut-Shaming: In Praise of the "Bad Girls" of Young Adult Literature

Loved this. Amanda Palmer's song "Judy Blume" is another beautiful take on the power of YA to open our worlds:

"so go on and think how you want
you will not be alone in your thoughts
well you will but you wont in a way
cause a girl thought it too in a book that the
library bought"

Our version of Clue[do] is Simpsons and Miss Scarlet is played by Lisa Simpson, aged 8. Make of that what you will.

I am going on a solo adventure to Turin! Anybody got any tips/recs? (long shot, I know). I speak no Italian and have not yet booked anything although I intend to go in two weeks so this is appallingly last minute, but all the more exciting for it.

My boss runs our company's social media, and frequently posts multiple lines of hashtags on a facebook status. At least now that will vaguely make sense?

That said, there is nothing funnier than a hashtag used incongruously, and this is limiting the potential for found hashtags (wild hashtags).

#hashtags #semantic saturation
