Have a great weekend!

This week’s links:

A beautiful personal essay about queerness and being transgender by Thomas Page McBee, at The Rumpus.

The New York Times covers sexual harassment in the online gaming community.

Autostraddle has a great and informative interview with queer feminist Texas Representative Mary Gonzalez.

Dodai Stewart responds to the commentary on Gabby Douglas’ hair, over at Jezebel. And check out awesome coverage of women’s gymnastics and the incredible Gabby Douglas over at the Crunk Feminist Collective.

And from the wonderful Sarah S:

Slate on race and casting calls

Do you agree with this list of the Top 10 Joss Whedon characters? (Sarah T. does not! Too many dudes, too little Faith/Zoe/Kaylee.)

  1. I agree with the too little Zoe/Kaylee. (If I can’t be Tami Taylor, I want to be Zoe when I grow up.) But—and don’t hate me, ya’ll—I can’t get on board the Buffy train. So for me it would be everyone on Firefly, plus Willow, and call it a day. 😉
