Write like the ghosts of all the women in history who weren't allowed to write are standing next to you wondering what a laptop is and why you're still in your pajamas.

I would pay extra to have a function on Lyft where you can request a car with no air fresheners. I’m still gagging.

Well okay, TIME! Shoutout to 11-yr-old me who read this mag from cover to cover, and then played “dinner party” for the rest of the week, where I’d dress up my dog and and try to talk to her about current events.

If you are interested in learning to see the world through someone else’s eyes, forever after, read this book. I read it in one night and think about this book almost daily. It has changed how I see and hear people, especially women. Congratulations Mira on this astounding feat.

I wrote about masculinity and my ongoing eating disorders for @GayTheMagazine. It was a super difficult essay to write, but I'm happy to have it in the world. Thank you @rgay and @laura_june for believing in the piece.

[cw: eating disorders]

You know what's interesting is the way white literature fetishes eye color and teaches writers to think eye color is super important.

Love love love Tiny Beautiful Things and hooray, finally got to see the play in Boulder @BETCTh @DairyArts. Actors in the talkback after: "The audience could be triggered by anything, so during the performance we just hold all this space for them." ❤️❤️❤️

Loved THE CRANE WIFE? Me too. I loved it so much I interviewed @safe_as_hauses about it + her novel for @adroitjournal.

"I think a lot of that is training in culture. It’s the ways in which we see women who want things, and that need is the butt of the joke."
