In other news, I was cited in the Tinder lawsuit.

I’m reading:

Say the right thing. The truth behind the gospel of productivity. The heartbreaking story of Shanesha Taylor, in her own words. On not gender identifying and not being a tech bro. How to piss off white guys and be a black country star. An oral history of L.A.’s Palomino. Callahan/Oldham/Bejar/McCombs, and Nick Cave. Cameron Crowe’s 1977 Rolling Stone cover story on Fleetwood Mac. How the captain of yacht rock lost his voice. What pastel hair means for women of color. Let them eat cash. How sexy are vegetarians? Vivienne Westwood loves lettuce. How to quit social media. Dispatch from a men’s rights conference. Justin Vivian Bond on the T-word. A harrowing lesson that not all rape victims are women. Fuck the pelvic exam. What people want Google to forget. The future of Siri and the parables of Octavia Butler.


An international experiment in photo-retouching and beauty ideals. (America is the creepiest.)



Feeling very…. patriotic.

I endorse:


The Notorious R.B.G. T-shirt. I own this, obviously. Very important to rep Ruth this week.
