@greenhousenyt @DeanBaker13 The world of journalism is too decentralized nowadays , unfortunately, for unions to have much positive impact on pay. I Journalists should be more like doctors and lawyers and use licensing to reduce supply and thus increase pay! :)

@h_thoreson Yeah, I mentioned this on FB. Interesting report. A little shocked by how once-staid AEI has morphed into a bit of a bomb thrower!

@laurenikay @laurakipnis Fine, agree to disagree. But I don’t think anyone, man or woman, who has delivered an unwanted kiss would consider it “nitpicking” to dispute whether their actions were part of rape culture.

@laurenikay @laurakipnis 2/2 The reality is that both men and women suck at reading body language when it comes to courtship. But because the culture expects men to make the first move, there are, inevitably, going to be more "unwanted kisses" coming from men than from women.

@laurenikay @laurakipnis OMG Lauren, nobody needs to apologize to me for misreading signals & delivering an unwanted kiss. You say consent to be kissed is communicated through body language, and yet women's media is filled with articles complaining about men who miss the signals: https://t.co/sYLqAc4Gaf
