Why I Make Terrible Decisions, or, poverty thoughts
"I am not asking for sympathy. I am just trying to explain, on a human level, how it is that people make what look from the outside like awful decisions."

Man Quits Internet: Goodbye, Hugo Schwyzer | The Hairpin
from Mira in comments section: "...when one of the most high-profile practitioners of his extra-gross brand of exploitation leaves the Internet, we're allowed to celebrate it. Publicly speaking as a feminist when you aren't actually a feminist really is a serious problem for feminism, especially when the speaker is a dude, because by virtue of his gender he will be taken more seriously by more people who are more willing to listen to him than will any dozen actual feminists who happen to be women. It's naive at best to pretend that this doesn't happen."

plus golden real-time reactions (also in comments) to his redone 'Goodbye Part 2'
