The Shaggs Reunion Concert Was Unsettling, Beautiful, Eerie, and Will Probably Never Happen Again | The New Yorker
It doesn’t matter where you go
It doesn’t matter who you see
There will always be
Someone who disagrees
We do our best
We try to please
But we’re like the rest
We are never at ease

Book review: ‘There Was and There Was Not: A Journey Through Hate and Possibility in Turkey, Armenia, and Beyond’ by Meline Toumani - The Boston Globe

The Wesleyan Argus | Sex at Wesleyan: What Vanessa Grigoriadis ’95 Got Wrong
e, she seems to suggest that discussions of verbal consent cater to a need for comfort presumably bred into our generation through doting helicopter parents and childhoods filled with participation trophies. To the contrary, these conversations represent communication that is laughably uncomfortable at best and impedingly cringe-worthy at worst. A desire for explicitly negotiating pre-coital understandings reflects a loss of innocence and ignorance, not, as she claims, naivete. Indeed, these conversations are happening between us kids precisely because we have become more aware than ever of the consequences for both perpetrator and victim when communication around consent is unclear. For a generation known for our supposed laziness and slacktivism, this impulse to lean into hard conversations surrounding sex is something that should be commended rather than ridiculed.

Research with DEVONthink, Zotero and Dropbox
Dropbox integration through the Zotfile plugin Zotfile enables me to simply keep the bibliographic information in Zotero, along with a link to the file in its Dropbox folder. The plugin also has other cool features such as automagically renaming files etc. using the bibliographic data. As a consequence, my files are not synched to the Zotero service either.
