The Week’s End // A Round-up of Very Important Reads

Happy Saturday everyone! If you’re looking for some interesting reads to check out while you kick back and relax, look no further, here is the best of the web this week, according to me.

***

Korryn Gaines reacted the way any person, fearing that any interaction will the police might end in death, would react. She dared to be defiantBonus: Maybe the police could have helped ease her fear, rather than shooting her?

To be a woman and to wish to be thin, and beautiful, and perfect goes hand in hand and can manifest in unpredictable and painful ways.

Introvert shame.

Teach your kids that their privates are private, and they have a right to say no to anyone who tries to touch them.

Alone in the tent of a fierce warrior princess.

A story about death, and men, and meat.

Fall in love with a stranger and live infinite lives in infinite universes.

How could anyone think that solitary confinement—particularly for long periods of time—is anything less than torture?

Unregulated, creative, and often violent, communities of Rio de Janeiro.

Addiction and religion can lead difficulties with sobriety and shame. Be proud of every day you survive it, and never give up hope.

The Mysterious, Innocent Complexity of the Playground

And that’s it for this week. Have you read, watched, heard, or written an interesting thing this week? Has something on the internet made you think or feel strongly? If so, drop a link in the comments :)

  1. Reading a bunch of Edgar Burrough’s books…mixed feelings about it. I like his writing, but sometimes they are a little too dated, but, ultimately, they remind me of being a little girl and the wonder I had regarding the planets…and the magical daydreams about said planets….

    1. I had to look up who Edgar Burrough was lol I’ve heard of Tarzan, obviously, but his other books look like fun too. Like how a bad horror movie is good because it’s bad lol. I want to read A Princess of Mars for sure, that looks really entertaining :)
