Also.Also.Also: Disney Is Censoring “Lesbian,” “Gay,” and “Queer” from Its TikTok Feature

Disney’s TikTok Voiceover Feature Censors Words Like ‘Gay’ & ‘Lesbian’


Saw This, Thought of You

Facebook Asked Users What Content Was “Good” or “Bad for the World.” Some of the Results Were Shocking.

Olympic Gold Medalist Sunisa Lee Says She Was Pepper-Sprayed in Racist Attack. “The gymnast was waiting for an Uber in Los Angeles with friends when a car sped by and passengers yelled anti-Asian slurs.” I hate this and love Suni so much.

The Key to Julia Child’s Success Hid in Plain Sight. “The chef’s almost mythical origin story can obscure a fundamental privilege she carried: She was American.” Ever since Meryl Streep in Julie and Julia I’ve been on my Julia Childs bullshit, and I really appreciate this critique.
