When I got to the "Webster's defines" section of that Reason article I had to get up from my desk for a little.

https://jezebel.com/we-should-probably- ... 1831805219

Duca’s real power, though, is on Twitter, where she has, at present, more than 435,000 followers who come for her mix of feminism, centrist political analysis, and sassy clapbacks at her haters. She seems to have particularly ardent fans among young women, and it’s that audience that she frequently encourages to become more empowered, more politically engaged, and more outspoken.

It’s an admirable mission. But her growing platform has also created consternation among her former colleagues at Huffington Post, a workplace Duca left in 2015 after being accused of sending cruel and harassing anonymous emails to coworkers. (Huffington Post has since rebranded as HuffPost, but was called Huffington Post at the time, so we’re referring to it as such throughout this story.)

(Duca repeatedly viewed, but did not respond to, six emails I sent her requesting comment over a period of nearly two months. Duca has an auto-reply that reads, in part, “Due to the absurd volume of emails I receive here, I am not able to respond to everything, and I also miss a lot of stuff. I will try to get back to you, but, if not: good vibes only!!” However, I know she opened them because for professional emails, I use a tracking service, which shows how often they were opened; the service showed that Duca viewed every email multiple times from her iPhone, her Gmail account, and another mail client.)

According to accounts we’ve heard from 10 of her former co-workers, all of whom insisted on anonymity because they continue to work in media and wanted to be able to freely discuss a sensitive work situation and because they were concerned about professional repercussions, Duca left the company in November 2015. Her departure came after an internal investigation found reason to believe that she’d sent several inappropriate emails to and about her coworkers—and herself—from what was meant to be an anonymous account, many said to be in the space of one disastrous night in October. One email apparently referred to a male writer as a “bald freak.” Duca was referred to as a “feminazi.” The very first—and most damaging—referred to a Huffington Post writer as an “overweight fake blonde.”

One person who was specifically targeted by the emails sent that night in October confirms that she saw the one about her, was hurt by it, and that the hurt lingers.

i listen to the new statesman podcast despite her. this is good news in the sense that i don't read the atlantic but bad news in the sense that she'll be spreading her TERF and anti-leftist bullshit to a wider audience.

Oh cool, one of the local papers published a super long article about this ancient alien cultist who lives on the north shore and pushes the Nordic aliens conspiracy theory. They straight up published quotes like this without pushing back on them in a meaningful way, like check out the paragraph directly after this doozy:

In her telling, Pleiadians have cultivated humanity’s progress since the dawn of time, building the Egyptian pyramids, and transmitting teachings to indigenous civilizations worldwide. Minnesota’s Native Americans inherited their star knowledge from Nordic alien astronauts, she says.

“A lot of the Native people say only Natives can do these ceremonies, but the Pleiadians would say it was important that the pure teachings went out.” She describes Native practices as “broken down” derivatives of Pleiadian tradition, “twisted” by the erosion of time.

In 2013, Day spent 10 days holed up in a remote cabin on Minnesota’s Gunflint Trail, working on her second book. Once it was done, she says, Pleiadians guided her out of the wilderness and down a long driveway to an unkempt house on three acres of land beside Lake Superior. It happened to be for sale.


20 paragraphs later you get the faintest of an attempt at rebutting any of this shit:

But while Day ascribes the link between Native Americans and modern-day Pleiadians to alien primacy, tribes don’t mince their words when it comes to outside revision of hard-fought traditions.

In 1993, some 500 tribal representatives declared war on “non-Indian wannabes, hucksters, cultists, commercial profiteers, and self-styled New Age shamans” blending Native spirituality into a “pseudo-religious hodge-podge.”


White supremacy is "dramatic entanglements" now! Having views associated with far-right provocateurs are a "tricky dilemma"!

In ufology, there’s a prevailing mythology surrounding Nordic aliens, other famous races like Greys and Reptilians, and their dramatic entanglements. It can be a busy network of contradictory ideas.

Far-right conspiracy theorists such as British lecturer David Icke and American radio host Alex Jones promulgate the idea that the world is run by a cabal of Lizard People in human skin, deceiving humanity about vaccines, global warming, and the Holocaust. Reptilians have also been accused of running a child trafficking ring out of the basement of a D.C. pizza parlor.

Bedfellows like these pose a tricky dilemma. Day believes contactees who preach about evil extraterrestrials have been led astray by fear.
