I’m taking next week off from the blog, so this will return on July 31. In the meantime, enjoy!

– We got enough shit for creating a new last name – I can only imagine when people start ‘messing with tradition’ when it comes to their children’s names: What Happened When We Gave Our Daughter My Last Name (h/t @andreagrimes)

– Ooof: Israel-Gaza conflict: 80 per cent of Palestinians killed by Israeli strikes are civilians, UN report says (h/t @roqchams)

– I love this article. Stop assuming men are the default – if you need to be the qualifier of ‘female’ or ‘woman’ in front of it, put ‘male’ or ‘man’ in front of descriptions of men doing it: World Cup Soccer Stats Erase The Sport’s Most Dominant Players: Women

– Finally – Courtney Enlow (@courtenlow) has been Liveblogging the 90s by picking choice films and reminding us (or questioning) why we loved them. You can find the archive here, but these are my favorites so far:

— I Know What You Did Last Summer

— The Craft

— Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead
