Against innovation

Buttermilk. It’s a thing. And it makes for the most delicious muffins.

RIP Shulamith, you brilliant wrongheaded beautiful with the coolest name ever.

I think you will find this quiz useful. I know I learned a lot about myself!

This is the problem with sexism. It takes the valuable and often constructive energy of social stigma and wastes it on the wrong targets. TO RECAP: Kristen Stewart cheats on her boyfriend with director Rupert Sanders, becomes the town pariah, and is dropped from the movie of which she is the eponymous main character. Rupert Sanders cheats on his wife with his much younger ingenue and….nothing. Chris Brown batters a woman and receives a VMA.

Of course, it’s hard to imagine a celebrity culture that wasn’t monstrously sexist.
