Putting on pants without using hands
this was wild from start to finish
If you can write things that make people turn the page you’ll be fine. Nobody will ask to see your qualifications.
By the same token, no amount of qualifications will make someone turn the page if she’s bored.
someone who never actually went to university because he really just wanted to write and is now an actual professor at a real college.
okay so let me get this straight

(I am slapping a huge freaking trigger warning on this. Violence, of a gendered nature, is discussed in depth. The pathology of such violence is discussed in depth. I think this piece is necessary, but when I personally found writing it to be triggery, I need to warn people.)
For some reason, the southern California shooting appears to be the event that has made America stand up and say that it’s time to have a conversation about hating women, and the violence that it motivates.
7 people died, and finally we talk about this. I’m writing this a week later, as the “controversy” is dying down—despite nothing having been fixed—because the core issue is, and always was, more important than we’ve ever made it. Meanwhile, today’s viral fad is about soylent and “food privilege.”
Because apparently, now that a few days have passed, misogyny is no longer a problem?
Apparently it wasn’t problem enough to bother paying attention when almost 350,000 women were raped in 2012.
Apparently we didn’t want to pay attention all the days that came before the shooting, when every day, three women in the US were killed by an intimate partner.
These things, which have been public information for quite some time, should have shocked us into action far sooner than the rampage of a worthless young man who chose to use murder to inflate his own importance.
Why do we value the actions of one man over those of a society? Why is he seen as the diseased one, and not the men who created him?
The answer is as much in our biochemistry as in our gender roles.
