I'm a freelance writer and blogger living in Chicago.
And yes, I'm the guy behind the Confused Cats Against Feminism
blog, a bit of a viral hit that's gotten media mentions in more than two dozen outlets, ranging from Newsweek
to Le Monde
. It also got a mention on The Reid Report on MSNBC. (For a more complete list, see here
I also run the blog We Hunted the Mammoth
devoted to mocking misogyny and the numerous misogynists within the Men's
Rights Movement. I've written about misogyny and Men's Rights for The American Prospect
, the Ms. Magazine blog
, and the Good Men Project
(before it went to hell).
I've been writing on topics ranging from gender and culture to money and
technology for more than twenty years, mostly as a freelancer.
Starting in the late 1990s, I covered tech and investing, at first for Newsday
and the now-defunct Upside magazine, then as a staff writer at Money
magazine. More recently, I blogged on money and business for Time.com.
I've also written numerous pieces on books, culture and technology for such places as Salon
, the Washington Post
, the Los Angeles Times
, the New York Times Book Review
, The Nation
and the sadly-deceased Lingua Franca
. I also worked as an editor at In These Times
magazine back in the 90s.
I''ve made appearances on both Al Jazeera English and Al Jazeera America and have been interviewed on NPR and on the Femisphere radio show
on Winnipeg's CKUW.
