Quote Post

Rather than trying to come up with a term for what Zoe Quinn is, I think it’s better to just go ahead and say what she’s not. Someone who slanders activists, fakes or embellishes attacks against herself for attention, and accuses people of misogyny because they dared judge her by her own ideals is not a feminist. That’s the sort of terminology we should be pushing.

If I gave more of a damn about the Zoe Quinn scandal, I’d write something about it myself, but Kazerad pretty much nailed my feelings on the matter with this quote (and his previous writings on the matter, which you’d do well to check out).

I laughed for a full minute upon seeing this on my dashboard.

Not a Tea Party, a Confederate Party

Tea Partiers say you don’t understand them because you don’t understand American history. That’s probably true, but not in the way they want you to think.

As someone who lives in the South, this essay from The Weekly Sift gave me a new perspective on its history (especially of its politics) that I now want to explore further.
