Things I read this fortnight that I found interesting

It’s round-up time, and it’s a little shorter than usual because I’ve been busy.

Dead name: why Facebook is wrong about who we are (Ray Filar)- Excellent piece on what actually constitutes a real name.

Ungrateful Fat Bitch (Femma Dilemma)- Gloriously furious poem.

Why Police Can Whack You with Sticks, But Not Spray You with a Water Cannon (Wail Qasim)- Important article on violent tactics in policing.

Decriminalise sex work for safety’s sake (ECP)- Signal boost for this pledge that you can sign.

The Queers Left Behind: How LGBT Assimilation Is Hurting Our Community’s Most Vulnerable (Colin Walmsley)- It looks as though the situation across the pond is much the same as here.

My Periodic Table (Oliver Sacks)- The famous neurologist is dying, and has written this beautiful, moving piece which made me cry.
