The Friday Five

This week’s roundup of our favorites from across the interwebs to help you make sense of men and women.

1. When Street Harassment Is More Deadly Than Catcalls by Holly Kearl of Ms. Magazine says: While people may think it is a stretch to connect catcalls with assault and attempted murder, sometimes catcalls escalate into something worse and women never know when that might happen.

2. Mourning A Miscarriage by Amy Klein of The New York Times says: It wasn’t the loss of a baby. It was the loss of my own hope.

3. Two Trans Guys Have A Son. Are They Raising Him Gender-Neutral? by S. Bear Bergman of Slate says: Once we know a kid’s sex, we think we understand what they should wear, how they should behave, what they should like to play with, and so on.

4. Men Have Biological Clocks, Too by Jacoba Urist of The Atlantic says men and women are roughly equally likely to be infertile, but for years the focus has been on female treatments.

5. A Good Men’s Rights Movement Is Hard To Find by Jaclyn Friedman of The American Prospect describes how the rise of men’s rights activists is hurting women—and men.
