  • “We have taught women not to trust their own experiences. The project has reinforced for me the extraordinary challenge of saying: this happened to me. I was there. This was real.” At Hook and Eye, Erin Wunker writes about the immense emotional labour that went into the CWILA’s Love, Anonymous project
  • “In every way, including the capacity to make milk, humans are born with breasts and breasts are breasts and also all humans have breasts affected by the environment and personal agency, and these are also breasts.” Such an important piece on the “natural reality” of breast cancer.
  • “What do we with the fact that the central political questions of our time are about emotion, about feeling, about the psyche?” An excellent defense of emotion, and a rejoinder to that Chait piece
  • Body Anxiety, a powerful digital art show on “gendered embodiment, performance and self-representation on the internet”
  • A surprisingly nuanced look at a hate crime in Oakland (except for the choice to uphold a style guide over a person’s self-description)
  • “The need to exert control over other peoples bodies and reactions and disregard for personal boundaries is seen in abuse within interpersonal relationships, in slavery, and in colonialism.” New advice from the Marooned Alien Princess
  • “It’s tempting to believe this is another nice thing about alcohol: that it allows you to press a kind of reset button, lets you take a psychic break from your life before starting over in earnest. You make everything blur together, get yourself low enough, and tomorrow can be something new entirely—it has to be.” A dry January failure: Scaachi Koul gets real about alcoholics and those who love them
