You know I am writing over at Hoyden About Town, too, yes? Check out my recent HAT posts page. There are political things, but also lots of knitting! Mostly fannish knitting! Including a Dalek.

Two things I am pretty passionate about: religion! Chinese history! Sometimes these come together and it means I have enough background to write pieces for Global Comment called Islamophobia in China: Violence Breaks Out in Xinjiang, because things are not so much with the happy for Muslims in Western China right now. You should go read that, because there are things about ethnic tensions and the influence of Western Islamophobia you may not know.

Also, while you’re waiting with bated breath for the new edition of the Down Under Feminists Carnival, did you know that you can submit to February’s edition? Details at the DUFC site.
