I’ve a rare Sunday afternoon off. Please recommend me books that are made entirely of fluff. I don’t want anything at all challenging. I want a book I can sink into like a warm strawberry-scented bubble bath, something fascinating and soul-soothing.

@DawnHFoster @TravisBernhardtSure. Those screenshots are from eight years ago- back when Milo was just another wannabe right-wing talking head and hadn’t gone alt-right or developed a following. That’s what the first quote references. We did ‘pal about’ then, and it was fun. Never said it wasn’t.

Addendum: I did however decide that it might be a healthy life choice not to spend ALL my time sitting in a room by myself beating my head against the internet. So now alongside my essays and journalism, I also write for television. And you know what? I’m really good at it.

To be very clear: @DawnHFoster is a great writer and I admire her work and I don’t want to catch ANYONE piling on her or anyone else on my behalf. If you’re moved to show your support, buy one of my books, or better yet order it from your library. And buy hers, too. It’s good!

Stop waiting for the ‘real Nazis’ to show up. They’re here. White supremacy today doesn’t look like the organised party system of the 20th century, because it doesn’t need to. This is gig-economy fascism. Entrepreneurial white supremacy. Serving the interests of tyrants by proxy.

‘The new trophy wife in tech isn’t the hot young model. It’s the most brilliant, accomplished woman you can get to give up her career to have your kids.’ - a woman who works tech told me this two years ago and it still haunts me. #sexism

I was honoured to be invited by to speak as part of their prestigious convention -#openfuture but I cannot in good conscience appear at an event which chooses to dignify a neo-nationalist like Steve Bannon. Unless this decision is reversed, I will not be attending. https://t.co/8UcIpABcd4

Yes, the terms ‘TERF’ and ‘transphobe’ are insulting. So are the words ‘racist’ and ‘sexist’. They also descriptions of real behaviour that hurts real people. If you feel bad because someone has identified your behaviour as harmful, that does not make you the victim.

‘Virtue signalling’ is a cowardly term used by people who secretly worry that their beliefs and actions are unethical and don’t want you to make them feel bad by behaving differently. Don’t fall for it. Nobody should feel ashamed of trying to do good in the world.
the idea of more and more women saying fuck it and refusing to reshape themselves around what men want or are
The idea of more and more women saying ‘fuck it’ and refusing to reshape themselves around what men want or are told to want *even if it means they end up single* is legitimately terrifying to patriarchy.
