Female Authors You Should Read

elliottholt:

Time lists 21 living female authors (in addition to new Pulitzer winner Donna Tartt) that you should read. It’s a good list, including Alice Munro, Rachel Kusher, Claire Messud and many awesome others, but it’s too short. In addition to the names on that Time list, I’d add: Lydia Davis,…

Read the whole thing.

Fuck, yes, arm condoms.

in which the actor who plays one of television’s least likeable characters is actually super considerate and cool

How can he be such a despicable cunt, then…

Damn right.

Kathy Keeton, idol, obv.

Ok. Wait. $335,000 a year in 1973 is $1,836,970 today. How many publishers are bringing home a cool $2 mil in 2014?

"[Taylor Swift] doesn’t have to be your taste, and I can totally understand why someone wouldn’t be into her, but choosing to write off a young woman completely because she “has too many feelings” is just typical, old school misogyny. Don’t like her music? Cool. Don’t like her style? Cool. Don’t like the way she words things in interviews? Totally reasonable. But if you’re willing to paint this woman as the CRAZY BITCH EX-GIRLFRIEND because she uses her platform to call out men’s bullshit behavior, you’re contributing to a culture that assumes all women’s feelings are irrational and worthless. It’s mean, it’s boring, and we can do better."

It’s Officially Time To Stop Making Fun Of Taylor Swift For Having Feelings (x)

Yes, this. Eminem can sing multiple songs about killing Kim, and no one bats an eyelash. But let Taylor Swift sing about her very real experience, and the world spins in crazy.
