My Mom Got Extreme Plastic Surgery—It Changed Our Relationship

My Mom Got Extreme Plastic Surgery—It Changed Our Relationship

I was 34 when my mother changed her face. Too old for tantrums, but that didn’t stop me from having one. Not in front of her—even I wasn’t that self-centered—but among my friends. The softness around her eyes and cheeks was gone, replaced by taut skin and sculpted cheekbones.

The face I had loved since childhood, that I had gazed at during story and meal times, and that had calmed me when I was anxious about a test or later a job interview, was gone. Just looking at my mother’s face...

A Taxonomy of Fear

A Taxonomy of Fear

We live in a time of personal timorousness and collective mercilessness. There might seem to be a contradiction between being fearful and fearless, between weighing every word you say and attacking others with abandon. But as more and more topics become too risky to discuss outside of the prevailing orthodoxies, it makes sense to constantly self-censor, feeling unbound only when part of a denunciatory pack. Institutions that are supposed to be guardians of free expression—academia and journalism in particular—are becoming enforcers of conformity. Campuses have bureaucracies that routinely...

Actor Bryan Callen accused of sexual assault, misconduct

As soon as she saw his name, Katherine Fiore Tigerman broke out in a cold sweat. Her shirt damp, she scrolled through the text messages from her best friend alerting her that comedian Chris D’Elia was being accused of sexual misconduct by scores of women on Twitter. She’d never watched the comic’s stand-up. She just knew that he was the best friend of Bryan Callen, a fellow comedian and actor. And Callen, she’d long told those closest to her, had once raped her. Lightheaded, she logged onto Twitter to scan the allegations. She found that many of the tweets referred not just to D’Elia’s...

Too Old for K-Pop?

Too Old for K-Pop?

My journey into K-pop and specifically as #ONCEUncle has been an incredible one. Last year, I answered questions on AGEIST about how TWICE fans made me “Feel Special” and ultimately brought me to this amazing fanbase with the positive vibes they create. “Happiness is ageless,” I said. After all, TWICE is the top-selling K-pop girl group of all time, and their 9th mini album “More & More” has already broken records on Gaon charts with unprecedented sales driven by a rabid fanbase that will do anything for their idols. They’ve even inspired me to do piano covers, giveaways, participate in...

You can use all caps.” Seven years later, never happened sooner than Snyder ever could have anticipated.

Nationwide organizing against police violence has renewed conversations and awareness of how...
