@Bobby Womack Bill Murray Noah has to get all those wacky animals on the boat, and fancy wife Tilda Swinton just isn't helping!

@shalalas Conflating a dislike of KK and her ilk with a dislike of women or of women's sexuality or expression thereof. It's the laziest form of thinking and not worthy of inclusion in a first draft of an undergrad paper, not to mention on The Awl.

I know April isn't usually the time for resolutions, but if The Awl would resolve to stop publishing bullshit like "She seems really funny, and fun, and I think she knows exactly what she's doing at all times, and that often the arguments I hear people make about her are tied up in their overall feelings about women—that she's stupid, or trashy, or whatever word they prefer meaning "too sexually available"—all subtext for a grown woman who does whatever she wants, who likes her body, who spends lots of time and energy looking a certain way and is happy with what she sees in the mirror" in the new year, that would be great. Thanks!

I think that release probably is unenforceable, but I'd sure like to see that assumption tested.

If I lose my number I'm out of here. It's the only reason I keep coming back here. Seriously, the instantly gratifying feeling of superiority to the 200k'ers is pretty much free happiness any time of day.
