The Alt-Right is Killing People
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) counted over 100 people killed or injured by alleged perpetrators influenced by the so-called "alt-right" — a movement that continues to access the mainstream and reach young recruits.

The Secret Auden | by Edward Mendelson | The New York Review of Books
He observed to friends how common it was to find a dedicated anti-fascist who conducted his erotic life as if he were invading Poland.

Like everyone who thought more or less as he did, Auden didn’t mean that erotic greeds were morally equivalent to mass murder or that there was no difference between himself and Hitler. He was less interested in the obvious distinction between a responsible citizen and an evil dictator than he was in the more difficult question of what the citizen and dictator h...

Two Faces of Privilege
The first face of privilege includes things that I would argue all people should have by virtue of being a human being. (Sometimes this is not clear, so let me be clear. All people means all people. It is not limited to citizens or residents of the United States, etc.) This would include food, housing, clean water and air, the ability to move about the world freely, and health care. It would also include things we would want to be free of—freedom from being raped, freedom from being assaulted or harassed by cops and so on.

The second face includes things that I would argue no one should ever have—the ability to rape, to sexually harass, or to shoot ‘suspicious’ people of color; the ability to dominate conversations, to pressure subordinates, or to demean or demand favors from employees, tenants, or students. Other examples would include the ability to hold oneself out as an expert on things you don’t know in relation to experts, to be immune to accountability for harming others, to take credit for others’ work, or to have others do the shit work (without credit) that supports your work. [...]

As a result, the solutions are different. For the first face, they need to be extended to all. The problem here is not that the thing itself is bad, but that it is too narrowly drawn. [...]

For the second face, these are things that need to be abolished for any. They could never be extended to all, because they are things where one person holds power over another. But more importantly, we shouldn’t entertain the idea that some people deserve to have these things. We need to do our best to prevent those who have these powers from exercising them, and work to divest them (or sometimes us!) of such power.

The Rise of the Social Media Fembot - Amanda Hess
The fembot has long been a pop culture fixation, but now feminized tech is all around us. Digital helpmeets like Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa and Microsoft’s Cortana are fitted with nonthreatening feminine voices and programmed to respond to sexist comments with cutesy repartee. (If you tell Siri to make you a sandwich, she replies: “I can’t. I have no condiments.”) Creepy techno-Pygmalion stories — like the one about the guy who 3-D-printed his own Scarlett Johansson bot on his patio — captivat...
