@FlufferNutter Jia, pls distribute these Built-in Shock Proof Bullshit Detectors for all. I would love to buy it in an ETSY SHOPPE.

By Lyz Lenz on False Dichotomy vs Who Cares

Yes! This. This is such a silly self-involved conversation that the writers seem to behaving with themselves. And I'm this market. I'm a Millenial writer, who wants a book. (Join the club, folks!) But really, it's a false dichotomy, truly. I feel like it's all hand wringing and lamenting. Spare me. Give me a good story. Also, I think it carefully weeds out all the good writing that happens in the middle. But I do love the Emily Gould essay.

By TheBelleWitch on "The truth is, the ten or twenty minutes I was somebody’s mother were black magic": Ariel Levy's "Thanksgiving in Mongolia"

Another recommendation on preterm birth that is similarly harrowing but with a happier outcome: Kelley Benham's Pulitzer-finalist piece on her 4-month premature daughter.

"There's two guys, and you, so which one of you is a rapist? Cause if we're talking about this room, one of you had to do it, cause you can't rape yourself. How do you feel?"

Wowwowowowowowowowow. Yes. Thank you.

No wonder Jessica Simpson was confused. (Sorry, Jess! I know you have done many thing and made many millions of dollars since then!)
