GLG Weekly Roundup

In Weekly Round-Up on June 2, 2012 at 8:44 am

This week, people wrote things on the internet! Here is a small sample of some of those things.

– Crunktastic writes a moving essay about black women, nudity, the politics of touch, and capitalism.

– A great conversation about domesticity in poetry with writers Rachel Zucker, Wayne Koestenbaum, and Matthew Rohrer.

– Zach Baron appreciates Kristen Stewart’s awkward, mumbly authenticity.

– GLG pal Martina has a wonderful personal essay about standing up to street harassment.

– The Rumpus interview (in partially comic form) with graphic novelist and national treasure Alison Bechdel.

– Choire Sicha gives a brief history of trigger warnings (and an account of the current debate over whether the term has become too generalized).
