Author, Speaker, Professor, Shattering Gender Myths. I wrote nearly two weeks ago that I’d be taking a break from online writing.

Author, Speaker, Professor, Shattering Gender Myths

I intend to continue to do so. I want to be a bit more specific as to why. For one, the toxicity of take-down culture is exhausting and dispiriting. The cheapest and easiest tweets and articles to compose are snarky and clever dismantlings of what someone else has worked hard to create. The defenders of this culture of fierceness call it intellectual honesty, but it is an honesty too often edged in cruelty.

So I’m done. Secondly, my family and I have been through a very difficult time as late, the details of which are saved for close friends but which are linked to this internet business. I’m not “flouncing.” And perhaps, in a long time, in a different capacity, I’ll be back to a public life. UPDATE: Perhaps ill-advisedly, I did an interview with Kat Stoeffel at New York Mag yesterday. Also, this. And I will be doing no more interviews. Here to challenge your ideas about everything from politics and the personal, culture and relationships. Power, privilege, and everyday life.

The Raw Story

Go see this movie! It’s very nearly perfect as an entertaining action movie, except for the part where we’re supposed to believe that Scarlett Johansson is a former KGB agent, when the actress was, you know, 7 years old when the KGB collapsed. (The Americans, at least, has warmed me up to the idea of KGB agents that have no detectable Russian accent.) Spoilers, of course. I was a little anxious, upon hearing that this movie was going to be a political thriller, that it would ruin itself by being too cautious. Obviously, the real world isn’t as black-and-white as Captain America shows it. Don’t Call it Normcore. By Amanda MarcotteFriday, April 4, 2014 12:58 EDT Fox News Wages War On The Young Oh no, fun!
