So here, have some links.
- The Rise and Fall of Liz Smith, Celebrity Accomplice I learned the Liz Smith is queer from this (very interesting) profile of her. I had had no idea.
- Three Thoughts on Emotional Labour I’ve been thinking a lot about emotional labor in the workplace these last few weeks.
- To Understand Whether Your Company Is Inclusive, Map How Your Employees Interact You know, it doesn’t exactly take an MBA to realize this–unless you’re a white man who has never been on the fringes of a workplace, I guess.
- A Marvel Comics Editor Is Being Harassed Because She Posted a Selfie With Her Coworkers Oh for fuck’s sake…

- These two essays are really important:
