Saturday Link Love: An All-Meat Diet, the Nyarlathotep Resistance, and Redemption for Rapists

Saturday Link Love: An All-Meat Diet, the Nyarlathotep Resistance, and Redemption for Rapists September 8, 2018

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 Jordan Peterson All-Meat Diet, on The Atlantic—“But [Jordan Peterson’s daughter Mikhaila] Peterson is taking the trend in extra-professional health advice to an extreme conclusion: She is not doing sponsored posts for health products, but actively selling one-on-one counseling ($75 for a half hour) for people who want to stop eating almost everything.”

I am Part of the Resistance Inside Nyarlathotep’s Death Cult, on McSweeney’s—“We still believe utter ruin can be brought to the land through the proper rituals and unhallowed traditions, not by this fly-by-the-seat-of-your-tentacles kind of governing.”

Redemption for Rapists: A How-To Guide for Predators, Abusers, and Churches, on Samantha P. Field—“Here’s my answer, nine years after being ordered to repent for causing a man to rape me, eight years after telling the first person who compassionately listened, seven years after a three-day bender I went on to avoid facing the depth of my hurt, six years after a counselor informed me that being a victim means I’m a “poisoned well” and shouldn’t date anyone, and five years after receiving the first of many death threats for talking about it in public. It’s an answer that has come slowly and at times painfully, but has been shaped by almost a decade of learning to forgive.”
