Link Roundup

- Another right on article pointing out the rightwing culture of The Twilight Saga.
Stephanie Meyer wrote a very thinly disguised book about Mormon dating from a fundamentalist pro-abstinence perspective. Her books normalize gendered violence, present their young female protagonist as unable to think, defend herself, or even be a whole person without a man, and hammer home an abstinence message. And don't even get me started on the anti-abortion, pro-sexual violence, pro-pedophilia mess that is Breaking Dawn.

- US troops are engaged in combat in the Philippines.

- Republicans in Northern Ireland have been rioting and targeting police.
