social justice links: guidelines & intersectional issues
guidelines & intersectional issues * racism * sexism & feminism * classism & democratic socialism * mental health & ableism * other issues
("other issues" currently includes anti-liberalism, LGBTQ-antagonism, anti-polyamory, religious intolerance, and xenophobia)
See also organizations & causes, and social justice ads, and social justice memes

So... I've got pages for my thoughts on racism and sexism, and on each of those pages I had lists of links to articles or videos about those issues. But I finally decided to move those links to a page specifically for links. That saved space on the other pages, as well as giving me a place to include links about issues other than just racism and sexism. However, even that page started getting too long, so I eventually broke it up into a few separate pages for different social justice issues.

Also note that some of the articles I link to on this page may be mostly about a specific issue like sexism or racism, but I try to include things here instead of on those pages if I see much of any intersectionality in it at all. Then again, there are undoubtedly some things I link to on other pages instead of here, even if they do have a bit of intersectionality in them.

Please note, this is mostly just stuff I've seen shared on facebook or learned of elsewhere, starting in May 2014. As such, these links barely scratch the surface of the subjects they address. There is much more research you or I or anyone can do on these subjects, which is beyond the present scope and purpose of this page. (Also note that links I add to this page may include articles, videos, etc., which were made long before I first saw them.) Some of the links I share here will be negative (showing society's problems), others will be positive (showing ways society is changing for the better and/or offering advice on how to help change society and ourselves).

TW/CN: some of the sites linked to from this page will talk about traumatic issues. Also, some use problematic language, particularly ableist terms to describe bigoted or classist people or attitudes.
