Tehching Hsieh and Linda Montano spent one year tied to each other with an 8-foot-long (2.4 m) rope from 1983-1984. They had to stay in a same room while not allowed to touch each other until the end of the one year period.

Oh god I told someone all my embarrassing feelings about this piece last night.

“The buzz word in popular feminism today is empowerment. When I became a feminist many years ago, the word we used was liberation. Unlike empowerment, liberation is a collective concept which means that even if my life is all rosy and “empowered,” it doesn’t mean shit for those women who are doing low paid jobs while trying to raise families. In fact, there is a very good chance that elite women’s empowerment is built on the backs of other women whose exploited labor provides the goods and services that enable a good career and a comfortable lifestyle. The low pay of nannies, cooks, cleaners, sweat shop workers, and day care providers means that wealthier women are freed up to make a salary that no doubt does feel empowering.”

“[W]ho studied psychology in med school and who has spent years doing research on psychopaths after she made the mistake of marrying one herself.”

That is how it usually starts. 

drunkengenius: I was reading this just moments before I noticed the same press release arrive in my Inbox. Hella good targeting, publicist.

[S]pent three years after medical school fulfilling her military scholarship obligation, living on various army bases in the U.S. After completing her radiology residency and fellowship in the Midwest, she began working full time. She prides herself on her work ethic and honesty and, before her ill-fated marriage to a psychopath, was a very trusting person. She not only became a victim of the sociopath she married but also of the unjust legal system. She hopes her story will serve as a warning to other women to take necessary precautions to protect themselves against manipulative men.”

Irritations

ivebeenreadinglatelyannex:

It is irritating to find oneself alluded to in a tone of undisguised contempt on the ground that one has held an opinion which it is impossible that one could have held and which one did not hold.
