Female Lawyers: Lose the Emotion, Bring the Cupcakes
GettyIt was still a struggle for me to find female role models in law school. My Feminist Jurisprudence teacher had shaggy gray hair and shopped exclusively in the “men’s section of Eddie Bauer,” she proudly announced early in the semester. Somehow, she was not a lesbian. The most popular female professors—like Nicole Porter—affected a masculine persona. They spoke algorithmically, wore suits designed to conceal the fact that they had female bodies, and haughtily referenced their clerkships with current SCOTUS justices every twelve seconds. They seemed to favor men, found nothing worth noticing in me, or any female classmate who didn’t fit within their narrow vision of womanhood.I didn’t want to be anything like these women. The only professors I actually thought were cool were pointedly not professors. They were the legal writing instructors, also known as the “mommy instructors,” because they all were women and most seemed to have kids. Everyone knew that they were paid the least, despite the fact that legal writing is by far the most relevant class to actually practicing law.But in Feminist Jurisprudence, I was finally introduced to a legal scholar I admired: Catharine MacKinnon, the radical queen of feminist legal theory. MacKinnon—or “Kitty,” as loved ones call her—has cold blue eyes, impeccable style, scathing opinions, and an iconic striped haircut that would make Susan Sontag jealous. Think of her as the Anna Wintour of the law. She is famous for her pioneering work in the areas of workplace sexual harassment and pornography laws, as well as for her incendiary public statements.Read more at The Daily Beast.

How St. Louis Won the 1904 Olympics—by Stealing Them From Chicago
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos Getty/Public DomainAs the Tokyo 2020 (or 2021) Summer Games finally get underway, it often seems like they have faced challenges unlike any other Olympics before. After the COVID pandemic steamrolled onto the global scene, Tokyo and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) agreed to delay a year. As the July 2021 opening ceremonies drew near, new scandals arose: Japan announced there would be no spectators, Olympic athletes began to test positive for COVID, and the organizers were faced with one gaffe or scandal after another.While this is the first time the Olympics have been held in the midst of a global pandemic, the Games are no stranger to controversy. Since the modern Olympics were first revived in 1896, there has been one dust-up after another of a political, financial, or athletic nature.The honor of ushering in this long history of scandal goes to the first Games ever held in the U.S.: the 1904 Summer Olympics in St. Louis. The Gateway to the West set the tenor for controversy from the start. See, St. Louis wasn’t actually awarded hosting duties for that year’s Games—they stole it. The resulting Olympics had fewer athletes, stretched over an impossibly long period of time, and were largely a hot mess. In the end, they earned an award of their own: the worst—and possibly craziest—in Olympic history.Read more at The Daily Beast.

This State Actually Does Live Up to the Hype
GettyAlaska is one of the most difficult places to plan a vacation to. It’s not because of safety, or how wild it is, although these two things are important. Instead, it’s difficult because it is so awe-inspiringly huge, and there are a plethora of good choices.Do you go to the Kenai Peninsula, a rainforest encrusted place teeming with wildlife where you might spot a whale? Or head to Juneau and Sitka of the Southeast—lands overflowing with glaciers and culture? Do you opt for a more rugged experience in the interior, or a more laid back experience aboard a cruise?But here’s the thing about Alaska: there are no wrong decisions, only decisions to be made. No matter where you go, you’ll be awestruck, inspired, and have your breath taken away—after spending nearly two weeks there, I’m willing to guarantee it.Read more at The Daily Beast.

She Wants to Be the MAGA Queen of Orange County. Will Her Ugly Past Stop Her?
MediaNews Group/Orange County Register via Getty ImagesAfter the abrupt departure of an anti-mask, ex-UFC fighter city council member, Huntington Beach, California, is careening toward a wild special election highlighted by a candidate who filmed herself at a protest with men who would later go on to storm the U.S. Capitol and drink goat blood in a pagan ritual.From late December until June 1, Tito Ortiz served as a Huntington Beach city councilor and “mayor pro tem.” The months-long term was unusually headline-worthy even for Ortiz, a former UFC champion. Before quitting last month, he claimed the Jan. 6 Capitol attack was a “false flag,” called for a boycott of a burger restaurant that asked him to wear a face mask, and got barred from a library (also over a masking dispute).With Ortiz out, Huntington Beach’s city council has been tasked with picking his replacement or else sending the race to a special election. The chaotic process has the city flirting with its furthest-right representative yet.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Tig Notaro Is 2021’s Sexiest Action Star. Now She’s Also a Cartoon. What Will She Be Next?
Erika Goldring/Getty ImagesTig Notaro seems to be everywhere lately. The comedian has been a household name for years, but lately her career has swerved in ways few could have predicted. There was the time she popped up in a Phoebe Bridgers music video out of nowhere last year, and more recently, thanks to a quick casting substitution in Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, the self-described “low-key” lesbian has become 2021’s sexiest action star. “Especially after turning 50, it was a real curveball,” the comedian told The Daily Beast during a recent interview. “But I’ll take it.”Tig Notaro: Drawn, which debuts Saturday on HBO, is another kind of experiment—a fully-animated special that transforms the comedian’s confessional anecdotes into cartoon vignettes.

An Army of MAGA Karens and Kevins Is Being Shitty for Sport
Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily BeastAmerica has done it again.Rather than being discouraged by the tragedy of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have dug in, held on, gritted our teeth, and against all the odds, somehow emerged from a year of unfathomable hardship into our bold new normal, where we somehow act like even bigger dickheads than we were before this all happened.This week I, like millions of people, watched a video of an unruly woman at an airport being told that she was not allowed to fly on that particular airline after refusing to wear a mask and calling one of the check-in agents a bitch. In the video, the woman pleads with a higher-ranking airline employee, who calmly explains that rude behavior isn’t tolerated on their airline, and if she’s looking for another travel option, he suggests Spirit Air.

Even Dershowitz Took a Pass on Trump’s Big Tech Suit
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos GettyAlan Dershowitz has long been the go-to lawyer for prominent MAGA-world figures who are having trouble with the law—from legal advice to legal punditry. But when it comes to former President Donald Trump’s class-action lawsuit against the social media giants who booted him off their platforms, even Dershowitz is currently keeping his distance this time.And that’s not from a lack of trying from Trump’s legal team.Two people familiar with the matter tell The Daily Beast that lawyers for the Trump class-action lawsuit against big tech companies reached out to Dershowitz in an attempt to enlist his support in the case. Specifically, the sources say, Trump’s legal team has asked the celebrity attorney if he would write a filing for the lawsuit, potentially an affidavit, in support of the First Amendment and free speech arguments leveled against the companies.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Inside the Maddening Search for Virginia’s Colonial Parkway Serial Killer
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos Courtesy Bill ThomasAround dusk on Oct. 12, 1986, a passerby happened upon a white Honda Civic leaning nose-first over the edge of a 15-foot embankment just off Virginia’s picturesque Colonial Parkway. The car looked like it had been driven, or perhaps pushed, into a thick stand of woodsy brush along the York River, and was mostly hidden from view to anyone driving by.Something obviously wasn’t right, and the man called police. Responding officers thought at first they were dealing with a drunk driving accident. The car doors wouldn’t open and a park ranger on the scene shattered the Honda’s rear window in an attempt to rescue the two women trapped inside. But first responders soon realized they wouldn’t be saving two lives, but recovering two bodies.The car was registered to the driver, 27-year-old U.S. Naval Academy graduate Cathleen Thomas, whose remains were found underneath the hatchback. The passenger, 21-year-old Rebecca Dowski, was a senior at the nearby College of William & Mary. Her body was found in the backseat.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
