iPhone : I wrote about Ellen and George W. Bush's friendship, the outrage, and then starting imagining what it would be like to meet the worst people in history eve.substack.com/p/imagine-your…

iPhone : Christina Sommers Very interesting how some feminists and conservative Christians seem to coalesce time and again. First Prohibition, then the porn wars, then Satanic Panic, and now opposing trans access to female spaces. I’m sure I’m missing a few in there too.

Twitter Web Client : My favorite discovery from reading and writing about this stuff is a 1993 Ms. Magazine cover that reads, BELIEVE IT! Cult Ritual Abuse Exists. Add a hashtag and we could be seeing similar covers soon enough.

iPhone : The '90s are back! And so are "repressed memories," now updated and rebranded as "traumatic dissociation." Anyone who remembers the Memory
Wars or the Satanic Panic of the '80s and '90s may want to pay close
attention to what's going on. thestranger.com/slog/2019/10/0…

Twitter Web Client : I mute a lot (maybe most) conversations because I'm easily distracted by notifications and I really think it improves the experience. I can get called a Nazi boomer fascist libtard all day and I don't even know. Ignorance, baby! It's great.

Twitter Web Client : Lol apparently I'm getting dragged by DSA twitter for a very obvious joke but I didn't even know because I muted that shit. The mute button really the best feature on Twitter. twitter.com/hatzner_emma/s…

iPhone : This guy makes the DSA look so fucking juvenile. If the socialists wants to be taken seriously they should probably kick the children out of the club.

iPhone : Just because Trump uses school yard taunts on Twitter does mean other elected leaders should do it too!!! This is so embarrassing. twitter.com/carterforva/st…

iPhone : Every day our justice system produces disgraceful outcomes like this one. We just don't usually hear about them. And this is toward the more lenient end of those outcomes! But 10 days in jail and a year on probation is a VERY big deal for an individual.

iPhone : A few people have brought this up and I think it’s a good point: Hate crimes are a tiny percentage of violcence. Addressing everyday violence and suicide would do much more to reduce deaths than stifling free speech. thestranger.com/slog/2019/08/0…

iPhone : I’ll be in conversation with the remarkable Meghan Daum at Elliott Bay Books in Seattle on Nov. 1st. Lots to discuss! twitter.com/meghan_daum/st…
