On Do You Have Impostor Syndrome?

@Michael Khaniri@facebook no, it's a real "problem," even if it's experienced differently (or not at all) by people of different demographics and experiences. Women, often. Lots of grad students and early-career scientists. Black men and women who are made to feel that they've been promoted due to affirmative action. It's been a subject of study by clinical psychologists since the late 1970s.

On The Great Hope of TV's Female Crime-Stoppers

OK, but what about Amanda Rollins? Olivia isn't the only female cop on SVU anymore! Also there was that awful season when she was undercover and Dani Beck was Stabler's partner.

On Talking to Anne Helen Petersen About Leaving Academia for BuzzFeed

@katherine those writers who don't "fare well" don't do so because, as the original commenter suggested, they wrote garbage. she doesn't seem to have read any of it, anyway. and when it comes from someone who doesn't even seem to know whose writing she's talking about and who has never commented here before, it really doesn't sound like a structural critique to me, but that could just be me! if it looks like a threadshit and walks like a threadshit, i don't need a peer-reviewed study before i'll call it one.

On A Certain Amount of Suffering: On the Women of True Detective

I need one of them to be the killer, so bad, and I need it to be Marty, because of of mental illness or supernatural causes or because he's been drugged by the evil ring of church men.

I'm gonna be totally bummed if Marty just turns out to be Leland Palmer.

On Welcome to Subaru Roadside Assistance & Empowerment

The line about the cat blocking the windshield made me laugh a lot! And also I dont feel super great about chemical sensitivities or trauma histories being lampooned as lesbian stereotypes. :( One's a medical condition! One's a human condition!

Sorry I'm humorless.
