More Radical Thinkers

Like “The Radical Idea”?  Think feminism and LGBTQ rights are pretty fantastic?  So do I…and so do a lot more bloggers, writers, journalists, filmmakers, and other people out there.  I don’t do blogrolls, but I WILL post other blogs I like here, as well as other material you may want to check out!

If  you are a blogger and want to have your blog added to this page, shoot me an email with a link at

Wondering where I come up with some of this?  Take a look at my reading list:

The Means of Reproduction: Sex, Power and the Future of the World by Michelle Goldberg…with book information available at

Half the Sky: How to Change the World by Nicholas D Kristoff and Sheryl Wudunn. (Note: I think Kristoff and Wudunn do an excellent job of introducing readers to a number of topics, but do so in a value-laden way that I dislike.  For better coverage of issues like FGM and missing girls, please look at Goldberg’s The Means of Reproduction)
