Link love: women's words, the myth of whiteness, and unreasonable fears


Hey there,

In honor of the spookiest time of year, I asked folks on Facebook what they are unreasonably afraid of and the responses were random (wet paper?), hilarious (bananas?), and sort of understandable (tall buildings?). Mine is circular saws. What’s yours?

Here are some links to send you into the weekend:
