MMMMonday! Memorial Day.

It's MMMMonday! Each Monday, we bring you special, maintainer-curated content intended to enrich your VP experience. Please note that you can find past MMMMonday posts using the "mmmmonday" tag.

Also, a quick reminder about the other places you can find VP: vp_bulletins for local announcements; contact_vp for questions and feedback on the way VP is run; the Vulvapedia for basic questions; and don't forget about our sibling community over on Dreamwidth! We're also on Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter.

Because it's Memorial Day in the United States, we're inviting you to leave comments to last year's Memorial Day MMMMonday post with thoughts of anyone that you are remembering today.

(TW for mentions of misogynistic violence ahead)
Also, while this day is primarily about honoring and remembering those who have served in the armed forces, we also want to remember the victims of the Isla Vista shootings this weekend, and direct everyone to the #YesAllWomen trending topic on Twitter, where very important discussion of misogyny and violence against women is going on. (Trigger warning for lots of things about that discussion - mentions of violence, rape, misogynist attitudes, threats, etc.) If you don't feel comfortable or safe joining in on Twitter, but you do feel comfortable here, you are welcome to leave a comment with your thoughts.

Take care, everyone.
