Weekly round-up and open thread
Chella Quint // 24 February 2015
Hello and welcome to the weekly round up. I have finally got into the swing of posting these, but so that I don’t break with my personal tradition, my weekly round-ups will continue to come out on Tuesdays. I think it might be nice if the week started on Tuesday anyway, to give you a sort of run-up after the weekend.
In any case, below you’ll find some recent news stories that caught the attention of The F-Word team this week. Linking does not necessarily imply endorsement or agreement by members of the collective or the author of this post.
Please note that these links range from “ooh yay!” to “oy vey” and some articles may be triggering. Want to discuss these topics or add your own? Please share this post, and comment below!

It depicts the view east from The Meadows, a large park near the city centre in Edinburgh, Scotland. It is a bright, brisk, late winter morning, and some blue sky is visible among the cumulus clouds. The view, while ostensibly of a grassy field with a few people walking along a tree-lined path in the middle distance, also takes in the impressive and unmistakable silhouette of Edinburgh’s own extinct volcano, Arthur’s Seat, which appears to loom up in the far distance, as though hiding behind the trees. It means no harm; perhaps it is simply playing a game of hide-and-seek.
