Thank you so much for this interview, Kit and Shelley!
I agree very much, Christine! Thanks for that putting that so nicely.
Thank you so much for this interview, Karl, and I'm so happy that my own interview resonated with you, since I can relate to so much of what you say here.

Sure - but the claim you quote isn't actually attributed to anyone, just given as an example of an absurd claim which the people I'm talking about wouldn't want to be committed to. So that inevitable conclusion on the part of the reader doesn't seem that inevitable.
Almost two months ago, Eric Schliesser generously offered me a guest post slot on his blog, Digressions & Impressions to respond to a recent piece by Joe Heath about what he called "Me studies," or people studying too closely the conditions of their own oppression. My two-part response piece can... Continue reading
