“In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” — George Orwell @heideggrrrl @zenahitz I agree, and well put. @xlorentzen @cejarvis @heideggrrrl This answer is very you and I love it! @xlorentzen @cejarvis @heideggrrrl This is good advice! @cejarvis @heideggrrrl This is spot on. @heideggrrrl @cejarvis Yes! Elevating the tone! @cejarvis @heideggrrrl I do think part of it is a frustration with the hectoring tone in which it’s done? @heideggrrrl ❤️ @heideggrrrl @bdmcclay @cejarvis There are certainly exceptions! (Thus why this place can be so frustrating.) @heideggrrrl And I don’t mind disagreement! I kind of enjoy it actually when it’s respectful and in good faith. I a… @heideggrrrl I guess I don’t think trying to persuade people (especially on here!) ultimately works—it seems they a… @profjoshlandy Yes ok “rarely” not never, haha @heideggrrrl But maybe I’m misreading you, as can happen here?! @heideggrrrl I definitely agree that there is value in diagnosing and critiquing moral failure but to me that seems… @M___p___k___ I love her 💜 @OscopeLabs No it was Sirius satellite radio! A 90s station—“Lithium,” I think? @GuardianJessica Hahahaha
@SueSchneidhorst Yes indeed @SueSchneidhorst For me or them? Haha @PeterSteinberg1 This is such a wonderful letter! “If I wasn’t so tired I’d hop right into your lap.” @PeterSteinberg1 I met her once! She was like 96 years old at the time. Barbara Epstein took me to dinner at her ap… @TheLincoln @elizmccracken Why thank you 😂 @lilyburana @kateward @Carina_Chocano I feel like some of it fucked me up in ways I’m only beginning to acknowledge. @PeterSteinberg1 Oh me too. She’s one of my absolute favorites.The Olsen Twins recreate Dorothea Tanning. @PhoebeR It really felt revolutionary when you heard it for the first time. @kateward It really does! @meghanor But isn’t it weird how we never talk about Hole? They were really so good. Live Through This especially. @meghanor Meghan! I wrote this and then was JUST thinking about that piece we worked on together. It was one of the… @Carina_Chocano That IS fun.

I love hearing that. @Carina_Chocano It really is, isn’t it? Did your daughter love it? @RoArquette It really is. @EdwardHemingway I love Malibu @looks_last YES @PKhakpour It has!! @S___Elliott Yes! I agree. And I love that album. @looks_last Might be mine too.Tell me your favorites. @kdwesson18 I love Hole too, and that album! @passerpiccolo My Catholic schooling (and later CCD) instilled in me a deeply rebellious and anti-authoritarian str… just heard “Doll Parts” on the radio and I don’t know why we don’t talk more about how great Hole was. Instead of… word is out! I'm so stoked to be editing nonfiction for the badass team at @_triangle_house, and if you wanna t…

An… @Abbey_Bender @alexdimitrov lol @alexdimitrov TotallySeems obvious but apparently not: Shaming or trying to control other humans won’t work, never works, often backfires. @xlorentzen Lol for real @SteveGreenwald Thank you! @jonahweiner It is his masterpiece! @lilyburana @walterkirn Yes exactly! 🙏💛My father died in May.

@TamaraMoore5 I really don’t think it’s only women. And I wasn’t writing about myself! @vmspod (And for posting!) @vmspod Thank you for reading Gil @sdmoore Thank you for pointing this out Sarah. And I’m so pleased to hear it perked you up! I hope you’re doing ok.❤️Sometimes I love Twitter. @mr_alphabet Good one @EdwardHemingway Haha I like this one Edward!MASS @rachsyme This is not a multigenerational saga but I have been reading The Portrait of a Lady with my book group an… @jamieharrisonmt 💜💜💜 @NatalieLima09 Mine came from a family that had not one but two VW Vanagons. @NatalieLima09 Lol yes @SteveGreenwald “Dark as a raven’s wing without the raven.” Very nice! @SteveGreenwald I don’t think you’re insane!

You should read a lot of the others. 💜 @abby_aguirre Ugh 😩 I knowNearly all of the comments to this just prove my point.
@unevagabonde And I do take your point! @unevagabonde I love your book Breakup! 🧡 @joannaofottawa I think you’re right! A little more acceptance. But my female European friends worry about aging too. @JLustwerk There are plenty of beautiful older women. I’m talking about societal standards, not specific women. @nellfreuden @RLSWrites ❤️ @claseur She doesn’t look like that. Her hair is dyed and she’s Botoxed to the hilt. Totally fine, but not comparable @scoootchover @RoArquette He’s not aging gracefully! He looks scruffy and gray and sort of old. But people still th… @Thereal_ssteele Yes you’re making my point. We love gray on men. @Thereal_ssteele He looks pretty scruffy and gray to me! @GigiLevangie You look terrific. 💛 @EdwardHemingway She’s amazing. I love her too. @RLSWrites I might be the only woman in America for whom he does nothing.
