Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.
The “Incel Rebellion” Is Misogynist Terrorism. So Why Do So Many People Still Put the Blame on Women? on The Mary Sue—“There are a surprising number of people attempting to justify the idea that if women were more open to having sex with these kinds of men, these sorts of tragedies wouldn’t happen.”
‘Unfuckable’ Women Don’t Go on Killing Sprees, on Splinter—“I, too, knew what it was like to feel an extreme sense of loneliness and self-loathing curdle into rage, to feel like you were being unjustly denied access to the romance, sex, and companionship you so obviously were entitled to. Yet it’s unlikely that Rodger would have ever seen me as a kindred spirit.”When Milky Got His Money, on Esquire—“A bank glitch gave a 24-year old, down-on-his-luck Australian man access to unlimited funds. Then he did exactly what you think he did with it.”
[Note: The above article is a bit different from my typical link-sharing fare, but I found it a fascinating read and I am just blown away that this (white) man apparently got away with blowing $1.5 million of the bank’s money.]
New evidence shows that our anti-poverty programs, especially Social Security, work well, on LA Times—“In each case, Weber and Wu found that the effect of each program has been materially underestimated by traditional measurements.”
