Weekenders 4 & Open Thread

Here’s another batch to keep you sorted:

  • A very different type of emissions trading scheme is proposed.
  • The five geek social fallacies are interesting reading. Shorter geek social fallacies: It’s okay to be mean to people who act like jerks, and not everyone has to like each other.
  • Shakesville has a wonderful guest post on what domestic violence is really like, and why victims don’t realise they’re victims as fast as the rest of us do.
  • The Feministing community is awesome. Ann has highlighted a piece about how many stores and abortion clinics obstruct teenagers from using birth control, pregnancy tests, and getting abortions, even though there aren’t any laws allowing them to do so.
  • The F-Word have a great article on attempts to close a loophole allowing lap dancing clubs to be zoned as if they were cafés or bars, and how their calls for his support are embarrassing Boris Johnson, the mayor of London.
