Excellenter Reading

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while and haven’t, but there we are. This is a list of writing by others which informs, or is especially influential upon, my general worldview (rather than being excellent on a particular topical topic). It is far far from exhaustive because the other times I meant to do it, I did not do it, and now the time I am doing it, I am doing it at 2:46am after a boozy Saturday and can only think of a few candidates. They are, in no particular order:


Bad Feminist – Roxane Gay – VQR


What My Bike Has Taught me about White Privilege – A Little More Sauce


Live Through This – Charlotte Shane – The New Inquiry


Schrödinger’s Rapist: or a guy’s guide to approaching strange women without being maced -Phaedra Starling – KateHarding.net


Ten things I hate about feminism – Deborah Coughlin – Feminst Times


No sexting please, we’re British – Ian Dunt – Erotic Review


On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs – Steve Graeber – Strike!


The Riddle of experience vs memory – Daniel Kahneman – TED


Broadly orthodox Keynsianism – Red Eared Rabbit


Liberate Men’s Sexuality – Margaret Corvid – New Statesman


…and the Slut Lived Happily Ever After – Karley  – Slutever


The philosophers I rely on most often, sometimes without namechecking them as it can break the flow or tone of an essay – Foucault, Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Gramsci. That’s not to say I ignore the others.

Keeping Workers Quiet – Alana Massey – New Inquiry


Why I am not Charlie – A paper bird
