Sarah Polley: The Men You Meet Making Movies - The New York Times
i - love - sarah - polley

"The implication wasn’t subtle. I replied that I wasn’t very ambitious or interested in acting, which was true. He then asked me about my political activism and went on to recast himself as a left-wing activist, which was among the funniest things I’d ever heard."

The “Bernie Bros” Narrative: a Cheap Campaign Tactic Masquerading as Journalism and Social Activism
"I see nothing wrong with journalists being vehemently devoted to a political candidate. But it's important to know what it is... Have pro-Clinton journalists and pundits been subjected to some vile, abusive, and misogynistic rhetoric from random, anonymous internet supporters of Sanders who are angry over their Clinton support? Of course they have. Does that reflect in any way on the Sanders campaign or which candidate should win the Democratic primary? Of course it does not."  glenn_greenwald  2016  2010s  criticism  bullying  internet  media  jeremy_corbyn  hillary_clinton  bernie_sanders  support  narrative  journalism  scandal  harassment  politics  politician  abuse

The Devastating Story of Washington's Peeping-Tom Rabbi | Washingtonian
"'Converts are the most vulnerable creatures of all,' says Wieseltier. 'They have left what they had, but they have not quite reached where they are going. They are in limbo. The only support they have is from the converting rabbi.'”
"And still the conversion process dragged on. Freundel never told her when she might be ready for the final steps: an audience before three rabbis who composed a conversion court plus a ritual purification bath in the mikvah.

"Months passed. Murphy waited. At a friend’s wedding, Freundel even taunted her: 'This could be you, but it’s not. I control that.'”

Stop Saying "I Have A Boyfriend" — Eberhardt Smith
>> Male privilege is “I have a boyfriend” being the only thing that can actually stop someone from hitting on you because they respect another male-bodied person more than they respect your rejection/lack of interest.

"This amazingly puts into one sentence what I have been attempting to explain to ex-boyfriends and friends (male and female) for years, mostly unsuccessfully.
"This tactic also brings up the question of the alternative. If the woman in question was boyfriend-free, would she automatically be swooning in the arms of the creep harassing her? Unlikely. So why do we keep using these excuses?"  privilege  boyfriend  women  men  partner  excuse  harassment  come-on  agency  respect  rejection  life  feminism  writing  alecia_eberhardt

Voter Harassment, Circa 2012 -
"True the Vote grew out of a Tea Party group in Texas, the King Street Patriots, with the assistance of Americans for Prosperity, a group founded by the Koch brothers that works to elect conservative Republicans. It has developed its own software to check voter registration lists against driver’s license and property records. Those kinds of database matches are notoriously unreliable because names and addresses are often slightly different in various databases, but the group uses this technique to challenge more voters.
"The Voting Rights Act of 1965 prohibits intimidation or interference in the act of voting, but the penalties are fairly light. Many states have tougher laws, but they won’t work unless law enforcement officials use them to crack down on the illegal activities — handed down from Jim Crow days — of True the Vote and similar groups.
