My first post responding to Hanna Rosin’s assertion that Joan Holloway’s sexual harassers were cartoon villains was already running long, but I there are a couple more examples that I think are instructive. First, Irin Carmon passes on this from Lilly Ledbetter’s autobiography: It didn’t take too long, either, for me to understand that I […]
Hanna Rosin objects to the sexual harassment depicted on last night’s Mad Men as unrealistically crude: My one problem with the development is that it depended on such obvious villainy. Typically on Mad Men the demons are internal, or historical, or temporarily conjured. But this episode depended on some pretty crudely-drawn enemies. The bros at […]

Thanks to the Washington Post, Tom Maguire and Hanna Rosin, we have a glimpse of what might have actually happened to UVA’s “Jackie”: A group of Jackie’s close friends, who are advocates at U-Va. for sex-assault awareness, said they believe that something traumatic happened to her, but they also have come to doubt her account.
