I didn’t have much time for reading this week, so I’m a little light on links tonight! Here’s what I got:
I Loved My Grandmother. But She Was a Nazi., The New York Times. “My grandmother would shrug and answer something like, ‘He said a lot of things — I didn’t listen to all of them.’ Didn’t she see Jews being rounded up and taken away, or at a minimum, harassed by the police? No, she maintained, not in the countryside where she lived. And anyway, she was focused on her own problems, on making ends meet and, once the war began, protecting her children.”
My Boyfriend Weighs Less Than I Do, Ashley Ford on A Cup of Jo.
Art Supply Sales Jumped in January, Thanks to Protest Signs, Report Says, The New York Times.
Former Thinx Employee Accuses Miki Agrawal of Sexual Harassment, NY Mag. This is like 10 times worse than I expected it to be.
The Friend Zone Isn’t a Thing and Women Don’t Owe You Shit, Vice. “‘Friend zone’ shames women for exercising their right to say no, just as ‘slut’ shames women for exercising their right to say yes (and ‘bitch’ attacks women for their right to call you out on your horseshit).”
In Praise of an Aggressively Unfashionable Shoe, The New York Times Style Magazine.
Setting the Table, Edible Philly.
Plan Out A Saturday And We’ll Guess Your Age, BuzzFeed. This is art.
Woman Spends Five Years Grooming Boyfriend to be Great Husband to Lisa, Reductress. Too damn real.
The week ahead…
I’m already over it.
