Alicia Elsewhere

By in Gentlemen, Society, Writing

Today I have a guest post up on Overthinking It, where I spend too much time talking about blood and Greeks and heroes in the Harry Potter series. Have a taste! Voldemort’s mistake is to think that shedding the blood of others will increase his power. In fact, it increases his enemies, as many of [...]

Pilot Versus Ballerina

By in Gentlemen, Ladies, Society

Sometimes, if you are not a cis white dude, life will up and smack you in the face for not being a cis white dude. Even if all you are doing is sitting around typing crappy prose on your laptop. I was doing just that when the love of my life started scrolling through the [...]

Vodka is not manly, says Caskstrength. “How so?” you ask. It just isn’t. I have harped on this for too long so I’ll make it crystal fucking clear, there [...]

The Drink-Like-A-Man Trap.

By in Drink, Food and Drink, Gentlemen, Ladies, Society

One night, four of us ended up at Seattle’s lovely Mistral Kitchen for dinner, because the rumor mill had it that the cocktails were pretty good. The rumor mill underestimated by a mile. The cocktails were more than good: they were fantastic. Maybe the best cocktails I’ve ever had: well-crafted, unique, and utterly delicious. And [...]

E-reader Ads and Gender Bias: A Rebuttal

By in Gentlemen, Ladies, Society, The Arts, Writing

So lately — on Shakespeare’s birthday, in fact — there was this Huffpo post by Jason Pinter, which then meandered through the blogosphere until it reached my habitual environs (NPR’s delightful Monkey See Blog). The article alleges that there are not enough books for men because of a publishing mantra: men don’t read. So there [...]
