Blogroll Amnesty Day

Today is Blogroll Amnesty Day, a day for bloggers to share the love by linking to smaller blogs or just blogs that we think deserve more attention.

This year our pick is The Sin City Siren. (Follow her on twitter too.) Here's a piece of her latest post, just to show you why you should be reading:
Okay, okay. Are you getting sick of the pregnancy-related posts, yet? (Hopefully not.) Well, make room for one more. I had no idea there was so much about pregnancy and being pregnant in America that would spark my feminist thought-machine!

A very popular question I get these days is, “So, is it a boy or a girl?” I try my best to smile patiently as I answer, “I don’t know. We’re not finding out.”

Usually this is enough for the casual observer. But every now and then the subject really ignites a passion in the other person. They must know what gender my fetus is, damn it! They find it horrifying that I don’t know and don’t care to know! Indeed, some people are actually sort of pissed off that I do not care about this construct called gender. Or to put it another way — that I do not care if my fetus has a tiny little vagina or a tiny little penis.

“But, you must care what you get?!” They stammer incredulously. And then, almost conspiratorially, “Tell me the truth: What do you want? A boy or a girl?”

My answer is always the truth and always the same, “I want healthy.”

That’s right. I’m some sort of pinko-commie-hippie-scum! I’m a pregnant woman who does not care about the gender of her fetus! Egads!! Panic! Mass hysteria, thy name is American Culture.
Go check it out, and if you have a blog, participate in Blogroll Amnesty Day. If you're on twitter, use the hashtag #blogroll to follow other people's posts.

Extra bonus pick: It's been awhile since we linked to The Rotten Little Girls, which we lovingly refer to as the Junior ESC. Check them out too!

We were introduced to Blogroll Amnesty Day by Blue Gal, so even though it's not Podcast Amnesty Day, I also want to give a shoutout to the new podcast that the lovely BG is doing with the hunky Driftglass: Driftglass & Blue Gal Podcast. Listen, learn, laugh, love, and...um, lemon. I don't know, I ran out of L words (lesbian?) and I panicked. Just go listen.
