Pointers to meta I think is worth reading.

This unfunny business writeup about awful behavior from a single BNF in SPN fandom has sort of exploded all over the place in fandom this week. If you haven't read it yet, as some of my flistians might not have, you might want to just so you have the context of the conversation. For further reading about the rape culture issue, I recommend "A Mother's Day Plea, disguised as a rant.". Ignore the outbreak of the Libertarian Fallacy from one of the commenters because it will make you want to spit nails; just read the post itself.

I think this is my favorite meta post of the week: "Fannish spaces, girls, and the culture of silence.". This one widens the discussion to all of fannish culture.
