THE STORY OF THE MEAN JAR as told by Alex Goldman of TLDR

There is a pretty regular volley of abuse between me and PJ. He makes fun of me for being a milquetoast suburbanite with a terrible sense of social cues, and I make fun of him for being an immature, disorganized mess with terrible taste in music.

The whole thing was getting a little exhausting, so I came up with an idea – The Mean Jar.

The way it worked was every time one of us was unnecessarily mean (and that means overtly abusive, wryly sarcastic, even in drawn form, which happens more than you’d think) the mean one would have to put 50 cents in The Mean Jar.

Our colleague Chris Neary would be the meanness referee, which was a benevolent act, seeing as we often contested his rulings.Once we reached 20 bucks, we were going to go out to lunch with our Mean Jar earnings.

Unfortunately, it was really only effective for about a week. PJ quickly began to see it as an excuse or even a provocation to be mean, dropping a dollar in to belt out a couple of epithets here and there. It wasn’t long before The Mean Jar experiment ended unceremoniously.

TLDR is a podcast from On The Media produced by Alex Goldman and PJ Vogt.

If we’re still conflating harassment with attraction, then the point has not been made clear enough: harassment is about power, not about sex. When making lewd comments to a woman he doesn’t know on the street, a man is not flirting. He’s asserting his dominance. He’s reminding that woman of her “place.” He’s performing a masculinity based on control. This isn’t sexual liberation.

hey y’all, please consider participating anonymously or otherwise. there are so many complex reasons victims/survivors do not report, and i want to help create space for us to feel empowered in sharing them.

you can submit anonymously here (anon asks are on) or using your twitter handle through the hashtag <3

i won’t be posting anything submitted via tumblr in the hashtag until monday 4/14 at 7pm, but you’re welcome to begin submitting now. i’ve already seen a few that are breaking my heart. you are all powerful beyond measure.

another quick clarification: tumblr’s submit option for non-users asks for a name and email address but you can give fakes for both of those—and either way i would never share them.

You can’t find intimacy—you can’t find home—when you’re always hiding behind masks. Intimacy requires a certain level of vulnerability. It requires a certain level of you exposing your fragmented, contradictory self to someone else. You’re running the risk of having your core self rejected and hurt and misunderstood.

Yep that’s why Ima stay right over here

How a Ghanaian entrepreneur turned his “impossible” dream into a reality.

A few years ago, Fred Deegbe was working as a banker - a profession that left him somewhat unsatisfied with the lack of impact he was having in the world. After buying a pair of Oxford wingtips at a store to impress a friend, Deegbe began to wonder if such high quality luxury shoes could indeed be manufactured in Ghana.

Despite the negative feedback he received from those who believed that such shoes couldn’t be made in Ghana, Deegbe wasn’t dissuaded from his idea of starting a shoe company in Accra. With no knowledge of the shoemaking industry, and armed only with passion and his gut feeling, Deegbe teamed up with friend Vijay Manu (pictured right) to start their luxury shoe and accessories company ‘Heel the World’, based in Accra.

Although the shoes are all handmade in Ghana, the goods used to make them are imported from places like the United States and Italy putting the price range of the shoes between $200-$400. This is Deegbe’s greatest challenge: proving that the shoes are worth the money they command.

To hear Deegbe tell his start-up story in his own words, watch this clip from CNN.
