Lydia Sargent: There’s No Such Thing As Legitimate Rape Because There’s No Such Thing As Rape

Welcome to Hotel Satire where gals learn how to be the gals that God intended them to be—that is, not men. We had been enjoying our summer, what with the Olympics and the Republican Convention.

Lydia Sargent: Waiting in the Wings

I watched the election results until well after midnight on November 4. I was struck by the incredibly emotional crowd response to the election of the first black president at Obama’s acceptance speech rally in Chicago.

Lydia Sargent: Recent Troubles?

As someone who has been actively critical (protesting, committing civil disobedience, producing alternative media) of the U.S. government’s imperial foreign policy (among other things), watching the American media’s spin at the Opening Ceremony of the Beijing Games was similar to being on one of those carnival rides that tilt and spin and go up and Read more…
