Abandoning Outrage

BY KELLY COGSWELL | I’ve been thinking about outrage lately, and how inadequate it is when it comes to Americans and Trump. Maybe the problem is that outrage requires some level of surprise, and, at this point, surprise seems false, even bizarre, in the face of a president who revealed himself clearly in all his […]

The Temptations of Direct Action

BY KELLY COGSWELL | Right before it happened, I’d turn on the news and watch a black or brown woman interviewing the likes of Al Sharpton, or Margarita Lopez, who was the first out Latina dyke on the New York City Council. It didn’t seem remarkable then, seeing so many women, so many people of […]

How To Cook a Trump

BY DONNA MINKOWITZ | I have to say, it’s hard to write about how good food tastes when Trump is compiling weekly lists of “crimes” by immigrants. I wanted to describe for you the precise degree of crispness and umami of the chicken thigh/ fermented soybean/ potato chip appetizer at the hot new Williamsburg restaurant […]

Poorly Educated Columbia Prof Throws Us Under the Bus

Poorly Educated Columbia Prof Throws Us Under the Bus

BY ED SIKOV | Don’t worry — this column is not about Donald Trump. Not exactly. Yes, he is the worst thing to happen to the world since anthrax. But all of the material I’d been carefully collecting about him for use in this column has been scooped up by other writers: the Mencken quote […]

Trump and All That –– A British Progressive Perspective

Trump and All That –– A British Progressive Perspective

BY PETER TATCHELL | Donald Trump rode to the White House on a wave of hate and vitriol – securing a victory for ignorance, intolerance, and incivility. He has pledged to abolish affordable Obamacare medical insurance for low and middle income Americans, ditch action against climate destruction, cut tax rates for big corporations, ban Muslim immigrants, […]

President Hillary Clinton and the Bernie Sanders Left

BY NATHAN RILEY | Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton don’t see eye-to-eye on the issues, and the Vermont hot shot never says otherwise, but he is working closely with her as the Democratic Party turns its focus toward taking the Senate and slimming the Republican advantage in the House. What Sanders does say is that […]

Income and Equality on Independence Day

BY KELLY COGSWELL | Another Fourth of July, and Independence Day in the US seems especially ironic this year since Britain, the country we won our independence from, just voted to sever ties with the European Union and is already regretting it. Those who voted to leave said they didn’t like EU taxation — even though […]

Hillary And My Vaginal Vote: Best Identity Politics Ever!

BY SUSIE DAY | Dear Hillary Rodham Clinton, I am voting for you to be our first woman president because Sisterhood is Powerful, and who doesn’t love power? For a woman to be accepted as “one of the boys,” she has to be twice as good at the things boys like. War, for instance. That’s you, […]

Cali Drug Price Initiative Sparked Sanders-Staley Spat

Cali Drug Price Initiative Sparked Sanders-Staley Spat

BY DUNCAN OSBORNE | In his interview with the ACT UP Oral History Project, Peter Staley recalled that the high price of an AIDS drug motivated him and six other members of the AIDS activist group to briefly stall the opening of the New York Stock Exchange with a protest in 1989. After sneaking into the […]

Lesbian Political Action Committee All In For Hillary

Lesbian Political Action Committee All In For Hillary

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | The Lesbian Political Action Committee has picked some big winners since its inception in 2012. LPAC endorsed President Barack Obama’s reelection right out of the box, and was part of several other victories that year that were less sure bets — Wisconsin Democrat Tammy Baldwin’s election as the first out lesbian member […]
