Eurydice Dixon and the sexism of the system – Solidarity Online
"'Starting a conversation' about domestic violence, as Turnbull claimed he wanted to in 2015, is a much cheaper option than doing anything to stop it. Unlike funding the social services women need to secure their independence outside relationships or marriage, 'starting a conversation' is free."

Leila de Lima: The woman who dares to defy Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte - BBC News
"Already known for being an outspoken advocate of 'justice without fear or favour,' she launched an investigation into allegations that then mayor Rodrigo Duterte was running death squads in Davao in his popular anti-crime campaign.

Nigel Farage’s attack on Jo Cox’s widower is a new low. Enough | Owen Jones | Opinion | The Guardian
"When Farage’s power was queried, Kassam responded with a picture of Farage and Donald Trump in the president-elect’s golden lift. Don’t mess with Farage, was Kassam’s implication, because he now has the patronage of the soon-to-be most powerful man on Earth. (You can donate to Hope not Hate’s legal fund here )"

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."

Why Don't Black People Protest 'Black-on-Black Violence'? - Ta-Nehisi Coates - The Atlantic
"There is a kind of sincere black person who really would like to see even more outrage about violence in black communities. I don't think outrage will do it at this point, but I respect the sincere feeling.

"And then there are pundits who write more than they read, and talk more than they listen, and prefer an easy creationism to a Google search."

What Would Orwell Make of Obama's Drone Policy? - Ta-Nehisi Coates - The Atlantic
Orwell: "Thus political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness."

Adam Serwer: "The government needs the approval of a judge to detain a suspected terrorist. To kill one, it need only give itself permission."

TNC: Consider the notion of "imminence." Last year Eric Holder claimed that a lethal strike against an American citizen can only be made if to protect against "an imminent threat of violent attack." But the white paper states that imminence "does not require that the United States to have clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons or interests will take place in the significant future." Effectively, the word "imminence" has no meaning beyond "we think you're a bad guy."

Robert Ben Rhoades: The Truck Stop Killer: Newsmakers: GQ
"I spent a week on the road in Appalachia, visiting truck stops, interviewing the older truckers and waitresses. At first, I would ask about the girl in the Dumpster, but no one had heard of her, so I asked if there had ever been any women found in truck stops. Wherever I went, I was told nothing "like that" ever happened, which was remarkable given the numbers of bodies the FBI had tracked over the past thirty years. The newspapers were equally silent. It seems our profound fascination with serial killers is matched by an equally profound lack of interest in their victims. One library archivist explained that I was looking for the kind of news nobody wanted to read. The girl, he said, "wasn't one of our own. She was a drifter." I'd never heard the word "drifter" used in earnest. It touched a nerve I didn't know I had. I had been a drifter."

A Land Without Guns: How Japan Has Virtually Eliminated Shooting Deaths - Max Fisher - The Atlantic
"[E]ven the police did not carry firearms themselves until, in 1946, the American occupation authority ordered them to. Now, Japanese police receive more hours of training than their American counterparts, are forbidden from carrying off-duty, and invest hours in studying martial arts in part because they "are expected to use [firearms] in only the rarest of circumstances," according to Kopel."
