Sex, journalism, armageddon and radical papier-mache: what I’ve been writing

As you can see, I’m still in New York; I have a marvellous new hat, and here is another round-up post. This month I’ve been writing about, amongst other things, sex, politics, the future, nerd guns, protest policing and the mating rituals of the young and foolish in New York City. Here’s the worst of the damage:

Incidentally, this month, which has involved me starting an exciting new job at The Independent, has also been full of more than the usual catalogue of attacks, rapebombing, slut-shaming, death threats, professional slanders, right-wing trolls, libertarian trolls, soi-disant radical trolls and mad people with vendettas, including former comrades, trying to push false stories about me into the gossip press. I try not to let it get to me, but sometimes it does get difficult. Despite all this I’ve managed to keep producing, but that might not have been the case without the support of a lot of wonderful people, friends and colleagues and near-strangers. I am massively grateful to everyone who has offered me their solidarity over the past few weeks – you know who you are, and I hope you know that your efforts are more than appreciated. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I love you.
