This page contains my favorite blogs and sites I go to or read, or favorite articles, divided into categories.
The Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN): Obviously this is the place where asexuals can read articles about our orientation and hang out in the forums to meet each other or discuss our issues, as well as work on projects to educate and make asexuality more visible.
Two Whole Cakes: Formerly Fatshionista, this is Lesley Kinzel's site about feminism and body politics, primarily relating to fat activism.
Derailing for Dummies: While pretending to be a guide for privileged folks to continue oppressing minorities, it actually highlights all the poor arguments people tend to use when confronting marginalized people and why they're ridiculous.
Not Your Mom's Trans 101: Really like this article on Tranarchism regarding some popular misconceptions about trans people, sex, and gender. The rest of the blog is good too.
Nanaca Crash: AVery addictive Flash game where you're a character who got booted into the air by someone's bike, and you have to try to control where you land (and on whom).
SCIENCE AND SKEPTICISM:
Pharyngula: Some of the best biologically oriented and snarkily skeptic articles around. This guy is quite a joy to read.
Skepchick.org: A nice blend of science, skepticism, and feminism that I love to read.
WRITING AND LITERATURE:
Impish Idea: Articles about writing and discussions of specific books, much of which revolves around criticism of books I myself have criticized.
Conjugal Felicity: This site makes fun of fiction and terrible authors in detail. Sometimes they quote or link to me because I make fun of the same stuff.
Slush Pile Hell: A Tumblr on which a grumpy literary agent shares his favorite query letter disasters.
Not Always Right: Customer service-related horror stories site which always has loads of accounts that remind me why I never want to work in retail again.
Not Racist But: This is actually more depressing than funny, but it's set up to make fun of these people so I guess it's more of a joke site. Features Facebook updates from public profiles involving people saying horribly racist things and then claiming not to be racist.
This Is Photobomb: People "bomb" photos by doing something silly, creepy, or weird in front of or behind the intended subjects. It's often truly hilarious and occasionally disturbing.
Picture Is Unrelated: Pictures of stuff that is so bizarre you feel like there has to be a story there. BUT YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS.
Cake Wrecks: Photos of professionally prepared cakes gone horribly wrong. (My favorites are always the terrible typo cakes.)
Derp: Awkward and silly pictures of people and animals. All the Herp that's fit to Derp.
The Onion: Satirical news site which is actually less absurd than the real news sometimes.
