Quickies: On the soothing power of horror

The conservatism of video games and feeling demoralized under Trump

Horror is a soothing genre for women – Because it’s upfront about what it’s like to be a woman. Great interview on LitHub with Sady Doyle, author of Dead Blondes and Bad Mothers: Monstrosity, Patriarchy, and the Fear of Female Power.

No shit video games are political, they’re conservative – “Declaring the products of an enormous capitalist machine somehow free of politics is insidious; trying to strip the influence from topics like these is at best a defense of the status quo, and at worst malignant reactionism.”

The demoralizing reality of life under Trump – Dahlia Lithwick on Trump burn out, reassuring us that we are not alone in being exhausted.
