“Top One Hundred Gender Studies Blogs” UPDATED

Update:  There are some really good blogs on the list but, as alert commentators have pointed out, there are some very negative features.  Thanks to those who are uncovering the problems.

=======================================================

Well, who knows how good any of these lists are, but this one has some interesting entries.  People in the dark about feminism might find some light with #19. 

Of course, #23,  which is FP, doesn’t need describing here.

I’m glad we’re in the company of the blogs on the list that I know, but there are plenty I can’t vouch for.  I expect readers will quickly know whether they want to return.

  1. The list is a bit dodgy in their descriptions, though. They link to an MTF and describe her as a “transgendered man.” As well, they link to Warren Throckmorton without noting that he is not just a college psychology professor, but professor at Grove City College (very conservative Christian school) and who counsels gays and lesbians in order to become “ex-gay.”

    So, good list, but don’t trust the characterizations.

  2. “I Blame the Patriarchy: Here you’ll find gender issues explored from a distinctly anti-male, pro-feminist point of view.”

    …What?

    Geez.

  3. I guess my point is that any list that misrepresents a blog so severely oughtn’t be trusted. Goodness me.

  4. Yeah, Twisty did a characteristically amazing take-down of the list at iblamethepatriarchy, on both feminist and anti-capitalist grounds. (Though I believe that she might say, that according to the Twisty Weltanschaung, that these are not so easily distinguishable).

  5. Yikes, so i didn’t really vet it. Should we take this post down?

    In any case, I’ll post a warning.

  6. Having given it a second glance I find the masculinity’s studies section to be suspect as well. Looking at the title of the host of the list, Learn-Gasm, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. Cripes.

  7. I went over to “I blame the patriarchy.” At least the list developers didn’t contact us, so mentioning the list was not a response to an advertising ploy, sigh. I was my own idea. :(

    Still, we’re in some good company.
