After one Reddit user expressed guilt over taking coffee for weekend enjoyment, another offered a rationalization: “You weren’t stealing the coffee. You were planning to work from home this weekend. Obviously you need coffee if you’re going to be working.”

If you haven't thought much about lynxes' lice, maybe it's time you did. (Seriously, this short piece is a brilliant take on symbiosis, extinction, and much more.)

I am so excited to come on WAMU’s today as part of their series on sex and dating. (Monday’s episode on cuffing season and the death of cruising was fascinating.) Please tune in!

Thank you so much to Jared Fried & Jordana Abraham for having me on U Up this week for a really great conversation about whether laziness is preventing sex and many other things.

Yes - my piece is about people in their teens & 20s--not older Millennials. I mostly refer to people by their age or life stage (teens, 20-somethings, young adults) not by their generation. (Generational groupings are so broad.)

12/ The new authoritarianism underscores the importance of an old feminist mantra: The personal is political. Foster women’s equality in the home, and you may save democracy itself. END

11/ Yes, Northern Europe has its own far-right parties. But it’s harder for those parties to use gender to delegitimize the existing political order, in part because women’s political empowerment has become more normalized in the home.

10/ Consider northern Europe, where women’s political power has become more normal.

9/ Over the long term, defeating the new authoritarians requires more than empowering women politically. It requires normalizing their empowerment so autocrats can’t turn women leaders and protesters into symbols of political perversity.

8/ In Italy, Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini compared the female president of the lower house of parliament to a sex doll. The gov't is promoting a law that critics say would eliminate child support, and considering one that would make it risky to allege domestic violence.

7/ Duterte has threatened violence against women. In 2017, he told Filipino soldiers that because he had declared martial law on the island of Mindanao, they could rape women with impunity. In 2018, he told soldiers to shoot female rebels “in the vagina.”

6/ Like Trump, Bolsonaro linked his counterrevolution to a counterrevolution against uppity women. In 2015, he told a congresswoman, “I would not rape you, because you are not worthy of it.” Crowds at Bolsonaro rallies chanted that they would feed dog food to feminists.

5/ Trump made Hillary Clinton—the first woman ever nominated for president by a major party—the personification of America’s corrupt political system, while a majority of his supporters told pollsters that America had grown “too soft and feminine.”

4/ Yet the right-wing autocrats taking power across the world do share one big thing, which often goes unrecognized in the U.S.: They all want to subordinate women.

3/ But the American explanations don’t travel well globally. Downward mobility? Not in Poland or the Philippines. Racial-and-religious-backlash? Immigration played little role in Duterte’s and Bolsonaro’s rise.
