Media Whores Offline: The Julia Baugher Story

kiss it!The City Paper's Erik Wemple tees off on the Georgetown University student newspaper's saucy sex columnist for -- among other things -- allegedly (allegedly -- it's a word we've heard lawyers use) serving up sloppy seconds of a cheesy "holiday gift guide" that originally appeared on iVillage.com. iVillage.com, the Lifetime Women's Network of failed online ventures? Guess that's what happens when you let your mother edit your sex advice column. Whatever happened, Julia Baugher is not writing for the Hoya anymore. She says it's because the fussy Jesuits didn't want her to write about oral sex. They say she's a big ho. No, no: That's what we say. And we mean it as a compliment. Julia, you are welcome to write about blow jobs for us any time.

UPDATE: One teensy little criticism, dearest: We know you tried to get out of paying for your hotel grapefruit by claiming to be with the Post. We applaud the effort. (We try to get out of paying for things too!) But sweetheart, everyone knows the Post people only get out paying for oatmeal. It's the Times people who don't have to pay for grapefruit

PS: Offer a blow job next time! We haven't paid money for fruit in years!

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
