The October MEN issue of r.kv.r.y.

Well, after much cursing and gnashing of teeth, we have a new website up (almost completely ready--the archives are not yet 100%), AND a new issue! It's a stunning array of work. When we first conceived of the theme, our editorial staff was 100% female and we thought it would be interesting to see what an issue themed “Men” would look like when the work was all selected and assembled by women. (Voila!)

We’re proud to present an interesting and diverse array of voices and perspectives — men writing about their daily lives, about their fathers, about the women they love (or love to hate), about raising children, about their traitorous bodies, and their love for other men. We even have work from a few women writing about men, just to round out the category.

Our illustrator is none other than the talented and visionary photo-collagist, Dariusz Klimczak who graciously allowed us to select from his extensive body of creative work. Truly, it's an embarrassment of riches.

We Represent the 47%

Today I have a letter to Mitt Romney up at We Represent the 47 Percent.

In general, I don't push my politics on people. I feel that who I vote for is a fairly private matter between me and the election booth. But the recent video of Mitt Romney speaking to donors just about did me in. And when that happens, I write to keep from jumping out a window.

Thanks for reading.
