Why Has Kamala Harris's Campaign Fizzled? - Quillette

Why Has Kamala Harris's Campaign Fizzled? - Quillette

For Democrats, the current 2020 election cycle is perhaps the most important in modern history. For the party faithful, unseating Trump—a man Democrats consider to be the worst President in modern history—has become the overriding concern, even eclipsing the party’s lively policy debate. One rising star, and a politician many considered would give the President a run for his money, is the junior senator from California, Kamala Harris.Superficially, Harris looks like the party’s dream candidate. She is a woman—an asset to a party animated by gender politics, concerns about diversity and...

How Britain’s Feminist Grass Roots Turned the Tide Against Gender Extremists - Quillette

How Britain’s Feminist Grass Roots Turned the Tide Against Gender Extremists - Quillette

In the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic and a series of massive protests over racist police brutality in the United States, one might find it hard to believe that an author’s common-sense views on human biology would make headlines. Yet everywhere you look, you’ll see coverage of Harry Potter author , who’s now being denounced as “transphobic” for speaking about the differences between men and women.In fact, so much attention has been focused on Rowling that some have missed the more significant British news in this area: The country’s Conservative government is distancing itself from proposed...

White Saviors Need to Leave the Room - Quillette

White Saviors Need to Leave the Room - Quillette

She called herself Kalamity, though that’s not her real name. She’s the white woman who called me a racist for noting that Indigenous children who live in communities where parents own their homes tend to have a higher standard of living and care than those who live in reserve communities where property is owned communally. This was the day after she schooled me, a Desi, together with a Kenyan woman—the only two non-white individuals in our class—on the proper use of people-of-colour nomenclature.“I’m not sure I like that phrase,” said the Kenyan woman.I agreed. Of all the ways to describe...

The Purity Paradox: How Tolerance and Intolerance Increase at the Same Time - Quillette

The Purity Paradox: How Tolerance and Intolerance Increase at the Same Time - Quillette

How can intolerance be increasing when Western democracies are demonstrably more tolerant of historically marginalised identities than at any point in their history? It is, according to Douglas Murray, “a curiosity of the age” that as racial and sexual tolerance “at the very least appears to be better than it ever was, it is presented as though it has never been worse.” This paradox occurs because, as we address and overcome problems of intolerance and discrimination, we also expand the concept of intolerance to stigmatise new attitudes and behaviours. This makes it appear as if we are...

Black Lives Matter and the Mechanics of Conformity - Quillette

Black Lives Matter and the Mechanics of Conformity - Quillette

The death of George Floyd in May, circulated in a bystander’s excruciating video clip, reignited furious and sometimes violent protests demanding reforms to address police brutality against ethnic minorities. According to the “The Science of Justice,” black Americans are disproportionately affected by the amount of force used against them by police, such as being tasered. Additional investigations have found that black suspects are to be manhandled, pushed to the ground, handcuffed, threatened, or pushed against a wall during a police interaction than their white counterparts. Bias against...

Down the 1619 Project’s Memory Hole - Quillette

Down the 1619 Project’s Memory Hole - Quillette

The history of the American Revolution isn’t the only thing the New York Times is revising through its 1619 Project. The “paper of record” has also taken to quietly altering the published text of the project itself after one of its claims came under intense criticism.When the 1619 Project went to print in August 2019 as a special edition of the New York Times Magazine, the newspaper put up an on its website. The original opening text stated:The 1619 project is a major initiative from The New York Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe...

‘Taking Cara’ Business: A New Mom’s Anxious Glimpse Into the World of Baby-Sleep Consultants

‘Taking Cara’ Business: A New Mom’s Anxious Glimpse Into the World of Baby-Sleep Consultants

Like most new parents, I spend a lot of time stressing over my child’s sleeping habits, fighting to get her down for naps, and dragging myself out of bed in the wee hours to deal with overnight wake-ups. Even before I’d left the hospital, my relationship with my daughter’s sleep patterns had become a big part of my life.My daughter was born jaundiced. And I was told by my midwife to keep her awake at the breast, as jaundiced babies are prone to dozing off when feeding (and, therefore, may not take the full feeds needed to get healthy). As a first-time mom, the experience of nursing my baby...

L.A.'s Failed Homeless Policies Turned My Home Into a Prison - Quillette

L.A.'s Failed Homeless Policies Turned My Home Into a Prison - Quillette

I never wanted a gun. In fact, I wanted to never own one—until around noon on Thursday, August 20th.Since the late 1990s, I’ve lived in Venice, California, renting a one-bedroom Craftsman house a mile from the ocean that someone built out of a Sears-catalog kit 100 years ago. I’m a science-based syndicated columnist and author, currently working all hours to complete a book that keeps trying to kill me. Luckily, I’m writing it in this cute little old lady of a house on my sweet Venice block.Whenever it seems I’m pointlessly pushing words around the page, I’ll step out the front door and...

Radicalized Antiracism on Campus—as Seen from the Computer Lab - Quillette

Radicalized Antiracism on Campus—as Seen from the Computer Lab - Quillette

The campus battle over what I’ve previously called the has recently shifted almost completely from a focus on gender to a focus on race. This has been accompanied by a series of surreal spectacles at the University of Washington in Seattle, where I teach. In the aftermath of the George Floyd protests, student activists have made new demands upon the school’s administration, while scathingly denouncing anyone they perceive as dissenters.Just consider our university president, Ana Mari Cauce—a Latina lesbian whose activist brother was . One would imagine that she’d command a certain level of...

Europe’s Virtues Will Be Its Undoing - Quillette

Europe’s Virtues Will Be Its Undoing - Quillette

Terrible is the temptation to be good.~Bertolt BrechtWe often forget that contemporary Europe was not born, as the United States was, in the euphoria of new beginnings, but in a sinking sense of its own abjection. The crimes of the Nazis affected the entire Old World, like a cancer that had long been growing inside it. Thus, the European victors over the Third Reich were contaminated by the enemy they had helped defeat, in contrast to the Americans and Soviets, who emerged from the conflict crowned in glory. Ever since, all of Europe—the East as well as the West—has carried the burden of...
