Sample text

While some of her readers are genuine fans of her work, others are drawn to her precisely because she is such a mystifying mess. The nature of online interaction means that Internet culture is inherently skeptical, if not outright cruel. And existing sexism and the stigmatization of mental illness combine to support a culture in which women who are deemed “crazy” are readily ridiculed and dismissed, even—or especially— when they offer explicit accounts of abuse. It is telling that the very first comment on Trunk’s “The psychology of quitting” post isn’t an expression of support or concern.

One post, titled “Blueprint for a Woman’s Life” advises: Do less homework. Women do better in school than men, but school is not a harbinger of doing well in life. Other stuff is. Other stuff that men do all the time. For example, involvement in sports is a foreshadow of a great career.

So do stuff guys do, and get grades that are as bad as theirs– after all, you should not be the hardest worker, ever.
