After Michael Sam
I have a new essay up at Hobart today. Here is a sample:

After Michael Sam was cut from the St. Louis Rams, I found myself thinking that he had come out too soon. He should have waited, maybe until after he was made the 249th selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. He should have waited, maybe until he had completed a season, until he was a proven quantity in the league. He should have waited, maybe as I have waited: for the right circumstance, the right occasion. But I know better.

Read the rest at Hobart.

Thanks to hobartpulp!

What if the Hobart Twitter just became all and only RTs of awesome people saying they&#8217;d ordered, and/or telling you *you* need to order, Chloe Caldwell&#8217;s WOMEN?

In 'Women,' Chloe Caldwell Captures Love, Longing, and Contradictions | Bustle

What is refreshing about Women is its storytelling through the female gaze, and how this informs our questioning and resolution of identity. Women doesn’t profess to be a feminist novella, and I didn’t notice this distinction until I meditated on why the book feels so different from classic coming-of-age fiction and memoir. Caldwell describes her lovers and friends the way many women see and consider themselves: the way our bodies match other women, the way we diverge, the softness and confidence of Finn’s “sweet spot” clothing style (a perfect balance of being butch and being approachable). The allure of other women that she conveys is in their ability to be natural and brilliant. There is a desire to have someone who has herself figured out accept you.

'risky and provocative women writers'

fast-machine:

i neglected to mention, the anthology from which my story was pulled was to be an anthology of ‘RISKY AND PROVOCATIVE WOMEN WRITERS.’

i don’t think they wanted ‘risky’ or ‘provocative’ women writers. i’m not sure they understand the meaning of either word.

a friend of mine told me the morning my essay went up on Hobart that a prominent woman writer (not one included in this anthology, i.e. not roxane) known for her writings about women and feminism, had initially linked to my essay and said something along the lines of, “e.e. has some interesting points here.” or maybe she said “interesting arguments.” at any rate, she said something that wasn’t 100% condemning. a couple hours later the same friend told me this woman had deleted her tweet linking to my essay. my friend said something like, “[this female writer] got into trouble, as she always does, as her “supporters” are so intense and possessive of her.”

so what does this mean? are we writers politicians now? catering to our ‘supporters’ or ‘fans’? afraid of open, honest dialogue and discussion? afraid to say anything new, that might not be easily swallowed or digested by our followers?

i find this very depressing. and another reason i’m neither ‘an essayist’ nor on twitter or fb. the second you become fearful of offending a fan or follower or even another writer who is a friend, you have lost the ability to think and to speak freely. you are no longer independent. you are no longer a leader. you have lost your courage. and my respect.
