The GOP’s Sexualized Assault of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez | Dame Magazine
The smart, outspoken, social-media-savvy Democratic freshman congresswoman from Queens is confounding to Republican men, whose only response to strong, intelligent women is sexploitative vitriol.

Anna Delvey and Elizabeth Holmes had the same tell: their hair | The Outline
Rich people get biweekly blowouts, trims every two weeks, root touch-ups every month or so, and monthly conditioning treatments, not just because they’re obsessed with themselves and how they look, but because it’s something to do, and the idle rich need to structure their time. Ruth Madoff, wife of disgraced Ponzi schemer Bernie, was known to be "religious" about maintaining her blonde, going for foil highlights at the tony Pierre Michel salon in New York City every six weeks. For men, it’s often golf or some other leisure pursuit, and for women, it’s tending to a physical appearance that helps guarantee a continued existence in privileged spaces.

I Was A Cable Guy. I Saw The Worst Of America. | HuffPost
That’s the thing they don’t tell you about opiate addiction. People are in pain because unless you went to college, the only way you’ll earn a decent living is by breaking your body or risking your life — plumbers, electricians, steamfitters, welders, mechanics, cable guys, linemen, fishermen, garbagemen, the options are endless.

They’re all considered jobs for men because they require a certain amount of strength. The bigger the risk, the bigger the paycheck. But you don’t get to take it easy when your back hurts from carrying a 90-pound ladder that becomes a sail in the wind. You don’t get to sit at a desk when your knees or ankles start to give out after crawling through attics, under desks, through crawl spaces. When your elbow still hurts from the time you disconnected a cable line and your body became the neutral line on the electrical feeder and 220 volts ran through your body to the ground. When your hands become useless claws 30 feet in the air on a telephone pole and you leave your skin frozen to the metal tap. So you take a couple pills to get through the day, the week, the year. If painkillers show up on your drug test, you have that prescription from the last time you fell off a roof. Because that’s the other thing about these jobs, they all require drug tests when you get hurt. Smoke pot one night, whether for fun or because you hurt too much to sleep, the company doesn’t have to pay for your injury when your van slides down an icy off-ramp three weeks later. I chose pot to numb my head and body every night. But it was the bigger risk.

I Was A Cable Guy. I Saw The Worst Of America. | HuffPost
On paper, the way we were rated, I was a terrible employee. That I was a damn good tech didn’t matter. The points were what mattered. The points, I’m realizing now, were why I spent the better part of 10 years thinking about bathrooms.
