There's a cult of Jobs? I like that he use to smoke hash alot. Aside from that the ubiquity of Apple for every little thing is starting to grate on me (music, cell, computer, apple tv, the stupid watch)...

Maybe now's a good time to ask for some, I dunno, "good" book recommendations, as far as things with a modern feminist slant go. I know (i hope) this thread is meant to skewer extremism or narcissism more than anything....but I can't help but to feel a little guilty.

Anyway, I can attest that Roxane Gay is a really cool and generous person, and I was not surprised to find out her books are really kick-ass as well. Any other cool books we should be reading?

Along those lines, I've met Megan Daum (close friend of a close friend), who's a cool person and good writer. A lot of her stuff isn't about feminism at all, although she does touch on it and seems to get lumped into that category.

Beyond that, I'm not really sure what comprises modern feminism these days. I mostly read fiction. I like Margaret Atwood, can't stand Barbara Kingsolver. Thought Gone Girl was clumsy, predictable, and transparently manipulative. Does that sort of thing count?

I did read Lean In, just because I kept coming across op-ed pieces and blog entries that assumed familiarity with it. Hardly revelatory, but an easy decent, and sensible read.

While lacking in strong female roles, this was superlative

Publish clickbait article about a woman screwing around. Check.

Publish clickbait article whining about the entirely predictable response. Check.

Shut down the comments and do a blog post criticizing your commenters but acknowledging how stupid your articles were--huh? http://www.theatlantic.com/notes/2015/09/the-problem-with-social-media-martyrdom/404071/

This is apparently a candid picture of the courageous feminist pioneer: http://img2.timeinc.net/people/i/2015/news/150330/robin-rinaldi-800.jpg

The term "attention whore" comes to mind, although that may just be because of my affinity for rape culture.

She may have made up the stories of her being a slut to cover her crippling insecurities about not being bangable enough to actually be a slut.

Either that, or getting truckloads of cawk really speeds up the aging process.
