You like Ezra Klein as a writer? Don’t take away his traffic. I don’t mean to pick on anyone, and this isn’t directed at anyone in particular, but it happens far too often on Tumblr. We have to start somewhere, right? So why not here? — Ernie @ SFB

Boy genius Ben Shapiro takes to Breitbart.com to complain that Maxim’s list of hot women includes two women that he doesn’t think are very hot. One of them — Hoda Kotb — is old, for crying out loud! The only reason women like Kotb would find herself on the list is that she’s a liberal and, of course, Maxim is well-known for only celebrating the hotness of liberals; it’s one of the pillars of the liberal conspiracy to take over America.
But Shapiro will have none of it. Making lists of hot women is something he obviously takes very seriously and he will not bow to the ghastly liberal agenda. After all, he’s the author of Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans so you can be sure he’s going to speak his mind about which women are hot and which women aren’t. Once Kotb and Kamala Harris hear that the boy genius thinks they’re not hot enough for Maxim’s list, you can be sure they’ll feel pretty badly about themselves. Luckily, and thanks to Maxim, millions of other men will continue to objectify them so I’m sure they’ll be just fine.
If you are bold enough to click over to Breitbart for this gen of an “article,” do yourself a favor and don’t look at the comments; they’re everything you expect and worse.

Even though Tumblr has been around for several years, I’d never taken a serious look at it until recently. I’ve mostly used Tumblr as a perfect procrastination tool, especially at the end of the semester. There are lots of academia-themed humor tumblrs such as When in Academia, Acadecomic, Academic Tim Gunn, Academic Tyra and All My Friends Are Academics. Other sites provide anonymous spaces for sharing experiences in academia, such as the often depressing Academic Men Explain Things to Me. But Tumblr can also be used in the classroom, as Carol Holstead and Doug Ward pointed out in their recent guest post. Lynda Barry’s posts on her Unthinkable Mind class are a great example of that type of engagement–I’ve been following the class from afar all semester.
