I read Roxane Gay’s Hunger this week. It’s fucking phenomenal and I can’t recommend it highly enough–with the caveat that it is a thoroughly harrowing read. I’m having a lot of thoughts and feelings about it, but it’s going to be a while before I’m going to be able to write about it coherently.
- How The White Establishment Waged A ‘War’ On Chinese Restaurants In The U.S.

- I know everyone’s seen this by now but dear sweet baby Jesus, sit down and shut up, Joss Whedon.
- I also know everyone’s been dying for the answer to this question: Can acid dissolve a body? (I’ll just note that a lot of acid can make it very hard to find the constituent parts. I’m talking industrial accident quantities.)
- I hate the title of this interview with Roxane Gay, but the interview is good. Roxane Gay’s New Memoir About Her Weight May Be Her Most Feminist—and Revealing—Act Yet
- Michi Trota has a thoughtfully critical take on Wonder Woman: Are All the Men Really Necessary?
- This exposé of the trucking industry is horrifying. Rigged. Forced into debt. Worked past exhaustion. Left with nothing.
- The Rules: A Memo for Every Man in My Life
- Sarah Gailey on her inspirations and influences.
- Elsa Sjunneson-Henry writes about disability, representation, and fiction.
- Notes from the Meat Cage by Fran Wilde. This is also about disability, representation, and fiction.
