Happy Friday! Be sure to stop by TSP and check out what we’ve been up to this week.
“Anti-Immigrant Rhetoric Raises Gun Sales,” by Neeraj Rajasekar. “In short, anti-immigration legislation and rhetoric can shape public attitudes, and social anxiety can predict the likelihood that locals ‘lock and load.'”
From Our Partners:
“Why America’s Women of Color Have Lost Ground Since the Great Recession,” by Marion Johnson. Limited access to health insurance, minimal representation in the government, and discriminatory voter ID laws all contribute to this troubling trend.
“College Men Having Sex With Men: Are They Exclusively Tops or Bottoms? (No),” by Eliza Brown and Paula England. Research shows that most men are “versatile” rather than always one or the other.
And a Few from the Community Pages:
- Feminist Reflections reflects on rape culture and pop music.
- Cyborgology asks why we don’t like our neighbors and peeks at Mizzou’s Yik Yak.
- Sociological Images looks at resistance to trans-friendly public bathrooms and asks who gets to break the rules.
- Give Methods a Chance talks to Clifton Evers about mobile video ethnography.
