For a 50-year-old woman, being yourself online is a no-no 20.12.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
For any chance of success, you need to be skinny, Pilates-practising, scuba-diving – and a fan of The Fast Show

For a while, my dating site profile said that the end of my relationship wasn’t my idea. I thought people would find it reassuring that I’m not a dumper, but – if you like – a dumpee. What I found was that most men didn’t find it reassuring at all. It seemed to trigger something – curiosity and then judgment. “What did you do to get dumped? Are you a bitch?” I mentioned this in an online chat one evening with a man called Neville, and asked what he thought.

“You may as well give up now,” he wrote, ignoring the question, “and withdraw from here and save your money.” I asked him what he meant.

Die-ins demand that we bear witness to black people's fears that they'll be next | Paul M Farber 19.12.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
After Ferguson, after Eric Garner, calls for racial justice are made by reenacting the men’s deaths. It’s a storied – and successful – protest tactic Die-ins – protests in which participants lie in public areas to mime death –are effective not just because they are acts of theatre that identify with the dead, but because they are visible expressions of fear by people who believe they might be the next to die. And they have roots deeper than the protest ingenuity that has defined so much of 2014. Across the US and the UK and beyond, thousands of young people are halting street traffic, shutting down shopping malls and disrupting other people’s lives to “die-in” for racial justice.

Activists are staging their own deaths because speaking out against systemic ...
