Tiger Beatdown Lives!

Sort of! We are currently messing around with lots of things, up to and including post schedules and that sort of thing. And thus, the silence. Which is no doubt obnoxious! Sorry! I was at the movies! And so on, and so forth.

However, this leads us to our next request: One of the many things we are hoping to revamp, on the new and semi-improved Tiger Beatdown, is our blogroll. Thus, we request that you use the comments to tell us which blogs we should be checking out! They can be your blogs. But we will probably take you more seriously if you recommend someone else’s?

Anyway! Thank you, for your patience. And your blog recommendations. And your shining faces! And everything else!

    Hi Sady & co.,

    I recommend Natalia Antonova’s blog – I can’t remember if you’ve linked to her before/already, but she is awesome. Here you go:


    p.s. – Where are those badass yellow tiger t-shirts? My roommates and I will send cash money for them!!

    I think you would really enjoy The Crunk Feminist Collective if you don’t already follow it.

    Also, I’d appreciate the shout out to my blog, Feminist Lab. Its an experimental feminist forum with an academic influence.

    I’m not sure what your original blogroll had, but you should definitely include FWD/Forward, Seriously kickass blog.

  5. Well, my favorite feminist science geek blogs at

    And because I don’t actually enjoy being taken seriously, and would squeal with delight if I were added to the TBD blogroll, I’ll just mention that my sometimes-socially-relevant blog can be found at And I have pictures of puppies that glow in the dark. Just sayin’.

    Hey, Sadie! In my view, you should not worry. There is enough internet to keep me distracted on a daily basis. I’d much rather have 3 awesome, passionate TB posts a month than 30 written on deadline. Because that’s what TB is for me: brave, righteous, heartfelt, and super-smart posts on feminism and neighboring topics.

    As to recommendations, I’ve got three pages I found recently that might be useful in a FAQ or links section. Derailing for Dummies is the most TB-ish:

    I was also excited to come across male privilege checklists, including this one for my field:

    And I loved this “Resources for Allies” page:

    And just last night I was talking with a pal, a female doctor, who reminded me how awesome this is:

    We both love it because it helped us see how much our racism and sexism isn’t conscious, which gave us different strategies for handling it.

    I spend a ton of time in the archives of Raising My Boychick by Arwyn. She’s not really pop-culture oriented, but she’s a terrific writer.

    Skip the Makeup by Gina has awesome, intense, in-depth analysis of cultural representations of trans people:

    You should probably add my brand new blog: “White Male Feminism”
    Another white kid and I are working on articles atm, and we’re going to start publishing October 1.

    The topics we want to address are video games, sex, pop culture, what male feminism means, etc., and also local news (from Marlboro College in Vermont)about sex politics and whatnot.

    I’d settle for finding the old blogroll; it disappeared off my browser weeks ago. (sad face) Is it hiding, or did it have to go away for the revamp? Or is my computer just being an idiot?

  15. Among people you may possibly not already know about, I enjoy Bitches Get Stuff Done and I’m keeping a close eye on Mum In The Know, though she hasn’t posted for a while. In not-necessarily-feminism there’s The Sexademic. And I was going to mention Deeply Problematic but now I see who the commenter upstairs is so I guess there’s no need. 🙂

    Sally, could you check your “spam comments” folder? I think my blogroll recommendations yesterday might have ended up there because I posted three links (Askimet settings usually determine that more than 2 links in one comment is spam).

    sugarbutch chronicles: sex, gender, and relationships from the perspective of a kinky queer butch top in nyc.

    that’s what ze said: a genderqueer jew writing about privilege, oppression, gender, bodies, etc.

    this is what a man looks like: a radical trans man writing about gender, antiracism, sexual violence, polyamory, etc.

    and check my blog out too. it’s brand new. 😉
