Tea With Chris is a roundup of recommended links, posted every Thursday. Here are a few of our favourite things from the Internet this week:
Chris: I want to paste Tricia Lockwood’s poem “Rape Joke” into every anthology there is, with the requisite content warnings, and my gratitude.
Carl: I would like to co-sign Chris’s Tricia Lockwood link. And to further strain your sensitivities, I will add two articles about dying, and how doctors themselves would not accept the terminal “care” they are often required to give their patients: here and here. This isn’t about “culture” the way we usually mean it here, and I hope that for all of you it is untimely. But it also seems like everyone ought to know.
On a funkier note, read Ann Powers, amazing as always on Bruno Mars … and, among other things, Trayvon Martin.
