I love the Hall of Biodiversity at AMNH so much. Whenever I’m stuck in meetings about the “New Museum,” the feeling I get walking through this space is always what I’m trying to capture.

If [redacted] ever asks you to help open a bottle of artificial skunk smell, do not offer your help.  She didn’t say the thing would spritz like a dizzy coke can.

For the remainder of today… you might wanna stay out of my way.  I’m just saying… ;-)

Oh, yeah…

keep your heart

"Shame on all of us. Shame on us that we need to actually see the video tape of Janay Rice getting knocked unconscious to actually realize that violence against women took place in that elevator. Shame on the Ravens for treating violence against women like an exercise in public relations. Shame on the NFL for being so untrustworthy - whether we’re talking about concussions, players health, and now violence against women - that nobody in their right mind should believe them when they say that they haven’t seen this tape before. But most important, shame on all of us for not actually thinking about Janay Rice at this moment in particular and what it’s doing to her that this video tape is now being released and re-released. We were all very upset with good reason about celebrities having their photos hacked and their nudes out there, and what it means to click on those videos, I’m just wondering, if everybody clicking on this video tape, how does that serve the interests of Janay Rice in this very difficult time in her life?"

NFL Regular Season: Week One

My fantasy football team is getting stomped this week and I’m hard-pressed to care. The last few months been hard on my love of football and I feel like it’s going to get worse before it gets better. It’s not just Ray Rice, but it’s really hard to shake off what the NFL’s treatment of Ray Rice implies (“women can get fucked, we have cap space to worry about”). 

The Browns had their season opener again the Steelers this past Sunday. We carefully arranged couches and chairs into a semi-circle around the TV, welcomed friends into our home like we do every game day. We watched a miserable first half before deciding to go outside and listen to the game on the radio instead. 

There were bright spots: Isaiah Crowell scored two touchdowns (I decided to pick him up for my fantasy team in an act of good faith and Cleveland loyalty), I finished drinking a Bloody Mary in the sunshine, and for a minute, it seemed like we might win. There is always that minute in a Browns game where you feel like things are about to go your way. And then they don’t.

Being a female football fan is even worse than being a Browns fan. The disappointment of being told that literally no one in a leadership position cares about you is so much worse than having to wonder why they didn’t just try for a field goal on that final drive on Sunday. Billy Cundiff probably would have made it.

every time I see a male rapist talking about “I didn’t know that was rape, I thought rape was something else” I worry that people’s takeaway is going to be “this is what rape culture does to men, we need to teach men about consent” and not “rapists are filthy fucking liars”

Had a lot of feelings like this while listening to NPR’s sorry ass report this morning about how some people feel colleges are too tough on rapists. Like, I have literally never heard anyone say that they felt their college’s administration was/is “too tough on rapists.” What I normally hear is, “my college brushed my rape under the rug,” “my college actively deterred me from pressing charges against my rapist,” “my college refused my request to allow me to change my schedule or living situation to minimize contact with my rapist,” “my college didn’t believe me when I came forward about being raped,” etc.  You know, like, that is just what I usually hear. I could be getting it wrong.
