Is Margaret Atwood Not The Feminist We Hoped?
Are you on Twitter? Did you see that Margaret Atwood retweeted Andrew Sullivan’s misogynistic article about the #MeToo movement? I was so disappointed. This article about white feminism is very good and addresses Ms. Atwood’s weak advocacy position. (The Root)
This post about America’s first black astronaut and outer-space spy program Major Robert Lawrence is amazing. (Narratively)
Michael Shannon’s selfie face is hashtag goals. (Lainey Gossip)
Hawaii’s false missile alert last Saturday was shocking, traumatizing, and appalling. When the second alert came through, notifying the public that it was a false alarm, there was A LOT of activity on one particular website. Guess what site it was. Go on. Guess. (OK, it was Pornhub. Duh.) (IFLScience)
This story is amazing. It involves Catholicism, a critique of the literalism of transubstantiation, Mexican wedding cookies, excommunication, and a life-sized anatomically correct Jesus made of challah bread and filled with jelly. Amen. (Tumblr)
Meghan Markle and her fiance went out to Cardiff today and she wore a super cute coat with an even cuter purse. Are royals advised against wearing all-black? If they are, I’m glad she’s not listening to that rule. (Celebitchy)
Did you know that Winston Churchill wanted to build an aircraft carrier out of ice?! To be fair, it probably wouldn’t melt too much going over to Russia. (Mental Floss)

Prince William shaved his head, hopefully ending his futile fight against his baldness. He looks so much better like this. I wish more men would do this. It looks really good, you guys! Truly. Embrace it. Own it. (The Cut)
Have we talked about how Trump compared Stormy Daniels to his daughter after they had sex? I mean, first of all, of course he did, of cooooooourse he did, and second of all, there are not enough barf emojis in the world. (Dlisted)
Due to the Republican tax cut, Apple will pay a one-time tax bill of $38 billion, instead of the $50 billion they owe. Who needs roads and bridges anyway, right? Sigh. (Gizmodo)
I thought I was fully onboard with the return of ’90s fashion, but I forgot about airbrushed sweatshirts. That’s a hard pass. (GFY)
Narfna does not generally give 5 stars to historical romances, but Cecilia Grant’s A Woman Entangled is that rare book. In fact, "this one barely had to flutter its skirts at me before I declared myself for it." What makes you give a book top ranking? (Cannonball Read 10)
