And last but not least! I feel a little weird putting this in the blogaround, because there is something very nice about me personally in it (thank you, Jess! I love you!), but I think everyone here is pretty well aware that: 1. Jessica Luther and I are friends; and 2. Jessica Luther is super fucking awesome and a fierce activist and generally amazing. So please know I am linking this because of her, not because she mentions me.

Danielle Nelson interviews Jessica Luther: Listen, Fight and Grow a Thick Skin. Read it read it read it!!!
