(Sorry this is late!)
Each week, I’ll be posting a list of the most news-worthy and/or inspirational, informative, well-written, thought-provoking, and/or unique posts of the week. While every post and every contributor is valuable to our community, these are the blogs that I feel are must-reads.

November 7- November 13

Stats for this week: 43 posts by 29 writers

Consent Is Not a Lightswitch- by Yes_Means_Yes

Why I chose this post:

Everything about this post is so unbelievably necessary

Net Neutrality: 50th Media Justice Post- by Media_Justice
Why I chose this post:

I think it’s important as readers/writers/supporters of a blog like Amplify, that we fight for net neutrality. But if net neutrality is still a bit confusing, don’t worry- check out this post to learn more! 

Tyler Perry’s Bravery & 200 Men Who Were Molested- by RyAnYWOC

Why I chose this post:

On a recent episode of Oprah, Tyler Perry joined an audience of 200 men who were speaking out about their childhood sexual abuse. Abuse is always difficult, but when society insists that men stay silent, how are they able to heal? This is not one to skip.

Honoring All Veterans on Veterans Day- by AFY_EmilyB

Why I chose this post:

Emily writes about two updates in the saga that is the eventual repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. One is good news. The other will just piss you off. 

The Way Forward is You…- by kiki

Why I chose this post:

It’s an interesting question: “ Why build a boat without a paddle?” But I think the answer is even more exciting. 


Thank you to everyone who posted a blog this week! You are part of what makes this community great!
