1. Privilege and Pandering (posted March 1) "The Doctor regenerates. The Doctor can look like anyone. And yet, repeatedly, we get a slender British white guy whose only real variations are height and age (even his style is broadly similar from incarnation to incarnation)."

2. #AroAceJugheadOrBust: An Ace/Aro Jughead in Riverdale (posted March 1) "Asexual and aromantic erasure is the norm, not the exception. ... Most asexual and aromantic people don’t even know that there are words for how they identify and often consider themselves – and are still often considered by others – “broken” despite nothing being wrong with them."

8. Building Reality on Ancient Cosmology (posted March 7) "Rather than accept that the Ancient Israelites had a different cosmology than we do today, one that is not in line with a verifiable scientific understanding of the world, many young earth creationists have taken this ancient cosmology and built it into their understanding of the world. The result is a strange mish-mash of modern science (the earth and the other planets revolve around the sun) and ancient cosmology (there was a canopy of water around the earth which fell to the earth during the flood)."
