Wow, y'all! I carved that original Williamsburg pumpkin, and I'm loving yours! So glad someone got the Feminist Pumpkin down to a science.

If you're still looking for a Great Women in Pumpkins fix, I've carved the entire shower scene of Psycho in pumpkins. Seriously. Check it out! http://yuliyatsukerman.com/pumpkins/

I can't even handle this. I need to go do some laundry and yoga breathing to collect myself.

@Koko Goldstein

So because people are jerks in creative writing programs, we should also be jerks on the internet?

Also, I have done multiple creative writing programs, including one at the graduate level. It was my experience that while my classmates' criticism was often harsh and intense, no one ever attacked any of my life decisions for being different from what they would have done had they been in my place.


I agree that some of the criticism on this article is legitimate and writing-based, but I would hardly say that it is the bulk of the comments. A good deal of the remarks here appear to be anonymous rage directed at a woman that probably none of us know for making poor choices when presented with certain opportunities, or "privileges," since everyone likes to toss that word around as if it has one conclusive meaning to all of us.

Edith, you speak to me. The bras, the recycling, the beneficial bacteria. I am in the same place right now.

Thanks for not writing a "Can women have it all?" piece. I much prefer your "Can this woman throw it all away?"

AHP is so right. Criminal was Instagram before there was Instagram.

Oh, God, Fiona Apple. I got into her so late, but I love her so deeply that surely that makes up for it? The song that brought me to her (however late) was "I Know". That SONG.

Also "Hot Knife" may be the most perfect song ever made.
