In creepy Reddit megathread, thousands of women recount the first time they were perved on by a grown man
by David Futrelle
[T]housands of “women of Reddit” stepped forward to tell the horrifying yet in most cases completely unsurprising stories of the first time men started perving on them, in many cases before they were even teenagers.

“Who Do You Think You Are?”: When Marginality Meets Academic Microcelebrity
by Tressie McMillan Cottom
Populists and capitalists conceptualize academic public writing as a democratizing process.

Using data from a public academic blog, I conceptualize the attention economy as stratified by attenuated status groups. I also discuss the methodological promise of digital texts for sociological inquiry.

Tanya Tagaq Voices Inuit Womanhood In ‘Nanook of the North’
by Brigit McCone
Nanook of the North is an iconic 1922 drama that recreates traditional Inuit lifeways through the representative struggles of Nanook (“Polar Bear,” played by Allakariallak), his wife Nyla (“the Smiling One,” played by Maggie Nujarluktuk), another woman identified only as “Cunayou,” Nanook’s young son “Allee,” and baby “Rainbow.” However, we are shown older boys, described as “some of Nanook’s children,” eating sea-biscuits and lard at the trading post, adding to the film’s casual, hand-waving vagueness about Nanook’s family relationships. Male helpers pop up for group hunts, as though from nowhere, but Nanook’s family is never placed in a wider community context. Despite describing Nanook as band leader, he is never depicted leading, and is frequently infantilized by director Robert Flaherty. By framing his drama as “documentary,” Flaherty converts Allakariallak and Nujarluktuk from active collaborators into passive subjects.

Undisclosed: Here it Comes
by Rabia Chaudry
I’ll be honest. I’m a little nervous. I had no clue (why? because I am ridiculously naive and don’t have the time to think even a week ahead) that our podcast would get covered by the NY Times, the Washingtonian, the Rolling Stone, PBS Newshour, Huffington Post, People, Vanity Fair…and the list goes on.  Considering the success of Serial, I certainly should have anticipated it, but not thinking this venture will be at all comparable, I kind of didn’t.
