You wouldn’t think that one of Louis C.K’s accusers would need to write an article entitled, I Didn’t Consent to Louis C.K. Masturbating in Front of Me, but that is exactly what Julia Wolov felt compelled to do after a Toronto comedy-club owner published an op-ed justifying his decision to book Louis C.K. by suggesting that the women gave C.K. their consent before Louis C.K. masturbated in front of them.

Keanu Reeves in The SpongeBob Movie. This is also the entire pitch. (Vulture)

I’m going to link to the Throwing Shade podcast today because, well, it’s one of my favorite podcasts, and today’s episode features Bryan singing the new alphabet song, Patti LaBelle’s alphabet song (MY GOD!), and a discussion of the way doctors used to test for pregnancies (it involved killing rabbits; my mind was completely blown). And that was just the first 10 minutes. (Earwolf)

This pretty much sums up my feelings on Pete Buttigieg: “It’s possible he’s the leader in Iowa polling now, despite having done basically nothing, broadly ever, in that debate or at any other point in his whole life. (This is the most white-man-in-America shit imaginable.)” 🔥 (The Outline)

This fascinating explainer digs into how TikTok is offering teens a platform to challenge and mock beauty norms. (Vox)

Jenny S likes a mystery writer who gives her books a sense of place. Her most recent discovery is Attica Locke. "Her focus is East Texas and her novels are rich and complex, featuring flawed protagonists, who find themselves in tricky situations at the intersection of race, class, and power." Black Water Rising and Bluebird, Bluebird are each the first novel in separate series, but both are steeped in that East Texas feeling. What author do you think writes the best "places"?
