Dearest Plague Rats, You may have noted that I have not yet said anything publicly regarding the Harvey Weinstein scandal, as well as the slew of other extremely credible allegations of sexual assault and harassment within the entertainment industry that have been plastering our eyeballs for the past month (though I have been discussing little else privately).
Hookup culture, which has been percolating for about a hundred years, has collided with dating apps, which have acted like a wayward meteor on the now dinosaur-like rituals of courtship.
“We are in uncharted territory” when it comes to Tinder et al., says Justin Garcia, a research scientist at Indiana University’s Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction.
My own experiences of rape, abuse, and harassment have been well documented in my music, my books, and my interviews, and so, since I talk about this kind of thing all the time—since I am outraged ALL the time—it didn’t seem terribly meaningful to throw my voice in the ring, and I chose, rather, to stand back and listen to what others were saying. You see, the 51% are rising, and it is in tribute to the valiant voices that are keeping this news on the front pages and pounding it into the public consciousness better than I ever could that I have made a remix of what is probably my most well-known song, “Fight Like A Girl,” incorporating just a few of these voices: Uma Thurman, Ronan Farrow (@ronanfarrow on social media), and my life-long hero, Emma Thompson.

Dan and Marty, also Alex’s roommates in a shiny high-rise apartment building near Wall Street, can vouch for that. “She works at—” He says the name of a high-end art auction house. And yet a lack of an intimate knowledge of his potential sex partners never presents him with an obstacle to physical intimacy, Alex says.
In fact, they can remember whom Alex has slept with in the past week more readily than he can.“Brittany, Morgan, Amber,” Marty says, counting on his fingers. Alex, his friends agree, is a Tinder King, a young man of such deft “text game”—“That’s the ability to actually convince someone to do something over text,” Marty explains—that he is able to entice young women into his bed on the basis of a few text exchanges, while letting them know up front he is not interested in having a relationship.“How does he ”But Marty, who prefers Hinge to Tinder (“Hinge is my thing”), is no slouch at “racking up girls.” He says he’s slept with 30 to 40 women in the last year: “I sort of play that I could be a boyfriend kind of guy,” in order to win them over, “but then they start wanting me to more …
