On The Best (and Worst and Last) Time I Went To a Sorority Party

this was beautiful, especially for repeated use of the phrase "delicate chemise." also I feel sure that if Smell-o-Vision had taken off, John Hughes would have dutifully let us know the truth about how beefcake types smell.

On Talking to Anne Helen Petersen About Leaving Academia for BuzzFeed

@JonnyFoy She is leaving an academic job that she has been at since 2012, not going to work at Buzzfeed straight after finishing her PhD. So she wouldn't be looking for her first academic position if she wasn't going to Buzzfeed, as you're implying. Also it's pretty ridiculous to assume that things she's published on websites like the Hairpin (as awesome as they are) would represent her scholarly writing, and since you seem to have assumed that I would guess that you know far less about academia than you are pretending to.

On "The Logic of Stupid Poor People," Or, the Only Thing Worth Reading About the Barneys "Shopping While Black" Arrests

@tofuswalkman "how did americans learn to hate the poor so intensely?" because we're told our whole lives that America is a colorblind meritocracy, therefore poor people must be lazy and stupid? but yeah. sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live in a place where compassion is a national value.
