“I Don’t Think I Was Brave. I Was Angry.”

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 00:38:00 GMT2017-10-17T00:38:00Z

In the wake of Harvey Weinstein’s ouster from the celebrated film studio that bears his name, which came only days after the New York Times first reported his allegedly decades-old pattern of harassment and assault, it’s tempting to believe that we’re entering a new era of intolerance for sexual abuse perpetrated by powerful men. But it may be too early to pronounce a shift. As Rebecca Traister pointed out at New York magazine, Weinstein is “no longer the titan of independent film” who is said to have frightened so many women into silence. Women’s voices carry more weight than they used to—but perhaps not enough to tip the scales against men at the height of their power.

It’s tempting to believe that we’re entering a new era of intolerance for sexual abuse perpetrated by powerful men.

Teens Love the App TBH, so Facebook Is Buying TBH

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 23:53:00 GMT2017-10-16T23:53:00Z

You know what they say: If you can’t bring the teens to Facebook, just … buy the app where they’re all hanging out. Or something like that. On Monday, hit app TBH announced that Facebook is acquiring it.

Teens love it.

For Women, #MeToo Is Frustratingly Familiar

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 23:31:58 GMT2017-10-16T23:31:58Z

Last week was a “particularly rough week to be a woman,” as Slate writer Katy Waldman wrote in response to the mounting allegations of sexual assault against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, the creation of the “Shitty Media Men” spreadsheet, and the one-year anniversary of the release of now-President Donald Trump’s infamous “grab em by the pussy” tape.

If you need a hashtag to show you that sexual assault is real, you’re probably never going to get it.

What Would Che Say?

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 23:04:24 GMT2017-10-16T23:04:24Z

This month marks the 50th anniversary of the murder of Che Guevara, the Argentinian guerilla who helped lead the Cuban revolution, fought in insurgent struggles from Latin America to Africa, and eventually met his end in Bolivia. Guevara’s reputation rests on his status as an iconic Cold War combatant and quixotic espouser of revolutionary ideals. That those ideals were often not matched by reality is part of what makes him both despised and tragic.

Memory Machine

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 22:37:00 GMT2017-10-16T22:37:00Z

It’s hard to think of a more uncanny notification from your smartphone than “You have a new memory.” Are phones reading minds now? But that’s a regular occurrence on iPhones these days thanks to Memories, which Apple’s phones now create by mining your photos and videos, setting them to inoffensive music, and offering an edited, movie-montage version of your smartphone-snapped life. And to add a predictably Black Mirror–esque twist, some of the memories may not be the kind if things you want to remember at all.

The Angle: Peppy Brew Edition

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 22:05:23 GMT2017-10-16T22:05:23Z

Signing on: Justin Peters is going to watch Fox News and blog about it for Slate. He started his series by immersing himself in a certain early rising president’s favorite morning show, Fox & Friends: a potent blend of bad faith, cheerful banality, and “pettiness of spirit” all delivered before most people commute. 

Hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade broadcast Fox & Friends on Feb. 17 in New York City.
