"Rain on roof outside window, gray light, deep covers and warm blankets. Rain and nip of autumn in air; nostalgia, itch to work better and bigger. That crisp edge of autumn."

The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath, 26 August 1956 in Paris 

Speak to me Sylvia.

Lena Dunham, the creator and star of the HBO series Girls, has a new collection of personal essays called Not That Kind of Girl. She joined Fresh Air to talk about oversharing, feminism, OCD, and why she thinks most depictions of sex in movies are destructive.

You’ve got to wonder, at a certain point, how many times can I fall in love? You have to start asking where your limit is—whether or not you’ve already hit and now you’re just doing something foolish by even trying.

I got a new job again and a raise again and I’m interviewing for the graduate…

This describes so much. I have everything and I still spent this week in knots worrying about being unloved and found out.

I do mind the gap.

annfriedman:

Alice Robb quoted me in a piece she wrote for The New Republic in which she argues that some gender gaps don’t matter. I disagree with her. It’s worth paying attention to gender gaps because they’re often a way of discussing and quantifying deeper problems. For example, it’s one thing for women…

Thank you Ann Friedman

When New York Times columnist Charles Blow was 7 years old, he was sexually abused by his cousin.  The traumatic experience sent him on a path of self-questioning in hopes of understanding how it happened, why it happened, and what it meant. His new memoir, Fire Shut Up in My Bones, is a unwavering account of his abuse and how he healed. 

In the interview Blow discusses the correlation between victims of child sexual abuse and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender identity:

"What the data shows us indisputably is that people who will later identify as LGBT have disproportionate rates of having been victims of child sexual abuse. So there are two ways to think of that — one of which I completely disagree with and one I agree more with.

On the one end, the abuse is making these young people LGBT. The science for that is completely flimsy. I completely disagree with that idea. On the other side … children who will eventually identify as LGBT are more likely to be targets of sexual predators. If you think of it that way, it changes our concept of how we need to nurture and care for children who are different. …

If you look at it that way you realize that in some cases, not all of course, in some cases the predator is targeting children who they already see as kind of having some kind of characteristics that will later be different. And that difference means they’re isolated. That difference means that they are already outside of the social mores, that the predator behavior is now somehow justified because this person is already outside the norm.”
