    Such an intriguing set of links! I agree, everyone should listen to this week’s podcast––it is fall apart funny and yet still manages to be thought provoking. Have a great weekend everyone!

    That is so interesting about Louisa May Alcott! I often think about the fact that LGBTQ people seem not to have existed before, well, fill in the blank: the Sixties?? But of course they did, and their loved ones were aware and in some cases even very supportive. Transness, in particular has been recognized by cultures all over the world since time began. I love that scholars and researchers are writing all of these people back into history.

    Can we really take a few out of context quotes from a woman who lived during an era where women had few rights or choices and declare that her frustration means she was a man? How is that the feminist position?

    Bobby, I don’t know if you’ll spot this, but just in case… I was on the Ulta website and noticed Ariana Grande has a beauty line that includes this product that is giving me Becca anti fatigue vibes. I’m not saying it’s an exact dupe, but giving vibes. Might be fun to investigate it https://www.ulta.com/p/full-nights-sleep-cooling-blurring-undereye-balm-pimprod2032210

    McSweeney’s never fails to amuse…or maybe make me cry.
