Rose McGowan is not a fan of Glamour Magazine’s choice for Woman of the Year. She specifically objects to a statement Caitlyn Jenner made in a Buzzfeed interview last week where she said “The hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear.” As McGowan sees it, if that truly is your biggest struggle, you’re not a role model; you’re a stereotype. This is such a delicate line to walk, because this kind of criticism inevitably gets wrapped up in the same transphobia as the man who returned his late wife’s award last week in protest, but that really was a horribly dumb thing for Jenner to say. What do you think? Is Rose McGowan wrong? (Advocate)

Jon Krakauer is Cannonballer Sophia’s favorite non-fiction writer. "He is passionate about his topics, always maintaining a careful attention to detail that I appreciate." So she was surprised to find out that Krakauer had a new book published this year, Missoula. Sophia dreaded reading it when she learned that the subject was a rash of acquaintance rapes at the University of Montana, but she gives Missoula five stars and hopes others pick this one up, "…learn something, and have a better understanding of what acquaintance rape and its consequences really are."
