I'm so fascinated by Tumblr. Equal parts in love and horrified. It can be pretty easily summed up by explaining that you can find whatever you are looking for on Tumblr.
I've been chugging away at my new project over there, Sexism! As Spotted on Facebook. I'm gathering a nice little following and I get the occasional submission. Sadly, it's really easy for me to do a couple of quick searches a few times a day and find a TON of fodder. (Like 70+ posts in 8 days.)
While we're on the subject of Tumblr, I was recently asked by a regular commenter, Kit Jordan, if I could pass along my favorite blogs to follow, as she had just started Tumbling* herself. Here's my list. What would you all add?
General feminist/leftist people who I think are cool:
I do want to add that that Tumblr (as with all social media) can be super hit or miss. It's a lot of "for fun" stuff and it isn't always hard writing, but there are a lot of pockets of social justice Tumbling that have really great stuff going on. Often (too often) bigots find their way into the fray so you do have to wade through that, but overall it's a pretty awesome place. Plus the general demographics are very young. As someone who is vastly growing too old for youth culture but works with adolescents, it's important for me to stay connected and Tumblr lets me do that much to my frequent amusement and horror.
*Yes, I'm going with the verb "Tumbling." Get over it.
**I'm updating this time to time.
