Here are some of the people writing about some of the stuff I wish I had time to write about today.
- The U.S. Is Becoming a Terrifying Nation for Women
Why are conservatives insistent on thrusting American women into devastating situations?
- Let Donald Trump be our unifier | Eve Ensler
Donald Trump is not a leader or a presidential candidate. He is an outcome, a viral manifestation of a serious malignant illness. He is the mirror of our emptiness, the emptying out that has been happening to our country for a very long time.
- Time for These Two Democrats to Go
There are two Democrats whose resignation from office right now would do their party and country a service.
- RuPaul gave me life: How “Drag Race” pulled me back from the depths of depression
I came to understand that drag is about more than artistic expression and celebration. It is armor, too, reminding the wearer of the joy and privilege of being alive.
- I was a devout Catholic. Not being able to get birth control shook my faith.
I couldn’t afford an IUD. But I couldn’t afford to get pregnant either.
- The angry white man
If playing by the rules only gets you so far, why bother? If one thinks society, the universe, God, or whatever isn’t playing fair, why should one play fair with it? Why not rage against the heavens and let it all burn?
