We made it to the end of another week, friends. This was a toughie.
At the Cut: What You Can Do to Help Women in States With Extreme Abortion Bans. (I personally gave to the Yellowhammer Fund.)
Also very well done, at The Cut, from Rebecca Traister: Our Fury Over Abortion Was Dismissed for Decades As Hysterical. (The kicker on this piece is great, and you should read the whole thing, but here it is: “Above all, do not let defeat or despair take you, and do not let anyone tell you that your anger is misplaced or silly or in vain, or that it is anything other than urgent and motivating. It may be terrifying — it is terrifying. But this — the fury and the fight it must fuel — is going to last the rest of our lives and we must get comfortable using our rage as central to the work ahead.”
Drew Magary is a damn good writer. He wrote about the extremely serious medical crisis he suffered late last year for Deadspin. I’m extremely happy he’s still with us.
We were delighted to be on Show Your Work with Lainey and Duana this week. You can listen to the podcast here!
We rounded up some cute swimsuits, if you’re in the market.
Texas Monthly is a great magazine. This article is a RIDE: Joe Exotic: A Dark Journey Into the World of a Man Gone Wild
Great, at The New Yorker: Jackie MacMullan Is the Great Chronicler of Basketball’s Golden Age
Also at Lainey, this is a really interesting piece about what’s going on with Wendy Williams.
Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan are in a big fight. What year is it again? Because if it’s 2008, I look TERRIBLE for my age. [D-Listed]
This piece at Eater is so good: We’ve Entered the Era of the Large Adult Meatball
You’ve probably seen The New York Times’s giant package about Gen X, and it really is great.
At Pajiba, this is some amazing intel that delighted me: ‘Game of Thrones’ Euron Greyjoy was Jaime Lannister’s Family Nanny in Real Life
At Celebitchy, I am concerned about what’s actually happening with Britney. Maybe….just let her lay by her pool in Calabasas and read her Danielle Steel novels?
At Washingtonian, here are some fascinating logistics: Inside the Pampered and Personalized World of DC’s VIP Diners
At the Mary Sue: Nike Wants Female Athletes to Dream Big—Until They Get Pregnant
Really interesting, at Vox: Target was the first chain to master high-end fashion collaborations. Here’s how it pulled it off.
Finally, we got an email this week from Fug National Daphna, who is organizing a fundraiser in Victoria, BC on May 23rd, and asked us to put out the word to local Fug Nationals. I’m just going to quote from her email: “The fundraiser is to support a refugee family arriving in Victoria later this year, and it’s 100% fug nation material: we’ll have a curated sale of secondhand women’s office wear, a braid bar, short hair styling, skincare, makeup, RMT massage, custom calligraphy, and a major raffle table and door prizes. All the info and tickets are at www.hustle-and-heart.eventbrite.com and sneak peeks are at our instagram, @hustleandheartvictoria. ” Sounds fun!
