Up in the air


You may have noticed there was no newsletter in your inbox last week. It's a boring technical story, but the short version is I couldn't send it because this list is no longer tiny enough for TinyLetter. I'm working on a transition, which you'll hear more about in the next few weeks. In the meantime, you can read last week's newsletter here

This week:

I wrote about how I react when artists and activists I respect run afoul of my feminist politics. And I'm quoted in this Harvard Business Review article about the personal newsletter boom.

I'm reading:

The year of identity and our (possibly) post-gender future. A history of female anger. How gunmen get their guns. Signs you're about to write a Dear Prudence letter. The hidden Kennedy daughter. The cost of work-from-home mothering, and a conversation about becoming a mother. Kenyan women create a women-only villageMen speak out about Planned Parenthood. The death of a barely-known genius filmmaker. A guide to Europe's punk foremothers. Bow before Nicki Minaj. The story of Prince's 'Dirty Mind.' On sex and the sacred text. A scary game from the deep web. The ghost boat.

Pie chart:


The 36,000 Feet Pie.

DVR:

The lessons of Grace Lee Boggs. Interviews about the end of the world. The Great British Bake Off!!

GIFspiration:


People are trying to declare that 
avocados are over. Apparently they are so mainstream that I got this disco-avo GIF from the Denny's tumblr. The Denny's tumblr, you guys. I'm playing directly to some marketing ploy and I don't even care. I would attend an avo-party. I refuse to be overcado-shamed.

I endorse:

This crucial message is brought to you by my pal Dylan Lathrop. You can spread the gospel of chill to the wider world by wearing it on your shirt.

Testimonial:

So many of you subscribed that we outgrew TinyLetter. I think that's a pretty good testimonial.
This newsletter is flying high (and not just because of the weed gummies).
Forward it to your seatmate.
