Bryson DeChambeau fires back at criticism of his ‘slow’ play
Bryson DeChambeau has a remedy for slow play on the PGA Tour: walk faster. DeChambeau, eighth in the official world golf rankings, has been called out by a few Tour veterans, including Brooks Koepka, for taking too long over his shots. “It’s embarrassing,” Koepka said earlier this year. While DeChambeau, 25, admits to being a...

Armed with a giant phallus, Wild Daughter are taking aim
They’ve shaken the leather and chains in a gay sex club. Now the transgressive trio have their sights set on stirring up the rest of the world“It’s like getting on a runaway train, not knowing when you’ll get off” says James Jeanette, frontman of performance art rock’n’roll trio Wild Daughter. “I used to take loads of drugs to get out of my own head … now I perform instead.”It’s certainly a more exciting statement of intent than you’d get from, say, George Ezra. And suggests why there’s quite a buzz for when said runaway train hits the ICA for a quite unlikely gig. Entitled The Moon Sextiles the Sun, it promises a night of performance and video art based around themes of “desire, addiction and gender fuckery”. Joining the scuzzy, Suicide and Cramps-inspired rock’n’roll of Wild Daughter on the bill will be Melbourne’s Spike Fuck, a transgender artist who claims to have invented the genre “smackwave”, and Berlin’s Die Hässlichen Vögel, who refuse to record or release any music.

No matter who gets into No 10, their Brexit plans are fantasy | Gina Miller

They are in for a rude awakeningAs commentators line up to debate the character and personality traits of the two men running for the Tory leadership – and by default our prime minister – there is only one question on my mind: how credible are the details of how and when they can deliver or resolve Brexit?This does not appear to be a question 84% of Conservative party members are remotely bothered with, as they would prefer the fantasy of an immediate “clean Brexit”.

People are dying crossing borders. It shouldn’t take shocking photos to change that | Maya Goodfellow
The image of a father and daughter drowned on the US border is harrowing. We need a radical shift in how migrants are seen“The politicians said after the deaths in my family: ‘Never again!’ Everyone claimed they wanted to do something because of the photo that touched them so much. But what is happening now?” said Alan Kurdi’s father, Abdullah, a year after his wife and two sons died trying to seek refuge in Europe, and a photograph of his youngest, face down, drowned on a beach in Turkey, appeared on the front pages of newspapers across the world. “People are still dying and nobody is doing anything about it.” His words are still instructive today.

We need to talk about women’s bodies – without shame | Fiona Sturges
I’m delighted that, in a slew of cultural projects, discussion of vulvas takes centre stageAre vulvas having a moment? It’s a ridiculous question, I know, given that more than half of us have them. It’s like asking if bicycles are finally fashionable, or if fingernails are now a thing. But in these supposedly enlightened times, our lady-parts continue to be overlooked, misunderstood, bossed about and violated. Still, it’s been heartening of late to see vulvas (or vaginas, or fannies, or foofs – let each woman decide what she calls what’s in her pants) discussed more openly, shown off in museums and celebrated on television and in books. This isn’t about the vulva-shaped soaps and cushions flooding gift shops, or Gwyneth Paltrow and her daft vaginal eggs. I’m talking about cultural conversations and artefacts that illuminate and educate us all on matters that, by rights, should be common knowledge.Earlier this year, Channel 4 aired 100 Vaginas, a joyful, taboo-busting documentary in which Laura Dodsworth interviewed 100 women and photographed their vulvas. The series highlighted how little the issues that have most impact on women’s lives, from sexual violence to childbirth, infertility and menopause, are openly discussed. This spring, the pop-up Vagina Museum – the first of its kind in the world – opened in Camden, north London, with the hope of breaking the stigma surrounding women’s bodies and sexuality, and has since launched a crowdfunding campaign in order to secure a permanent home.

The invention of Essex: how a county became a caricature
From Loadsamoney and ‘Basildon man’ to Towie and Brexit – Essex has long been held up as both the authentic England and the crudest, stupidest symbol of Englishness. By Tim BurrowsAs a child growing up in the 80s and 90s in Southend, a sprawling seaside town in south-east Essex, I noticed that people on TV often laughed at the very word Essex. Some years later, in 2016, my wife, Hayley, crossed the border into Albania from Montenegro while travelling with an old friend who, like us, grew up in the county. The border guard asked where they were from – and when they told him, his response was quickfire: “I’ve heard a lot about Essex girls,” he said. “But I’m sure you are not like that.”Thousands of kilometres from Essex, the border guard had not only heard of this county in south-east England, but even knew what it had come to signify: a land of crass consumerism, populated by perma-tanned chancers and loose women with more front than Clacton-on-Sea.

Emily Atack: Adulting review – proof that the ladette is back
If you think working and doing your own washing are ‘adult challenges’ for someone in their late 20s, this one’s for youEmily Atack is “going places”. Last year, she narrowly missed out on winning I’m a Celebrity … in which the Inbetweeners actor “found some new love and respect for myself”, presumably not while Holly Willoughby was panic-flicking giant cockroaches off her body with a cue card. Since then, her Instagram followers have grown in number from 70,000 to 1.4 million, she has done standup about her roaring 20s, has released a clothing range and is writing a book, which I can only assume is about how Atack found new love and respect for herself in the jungle, the standup tour, the clothing range and the book. You might ask what is left. A preposterously overpaid column in a rightwing newspaper? Leader of the country?No, the inevitable consequence of all this is Emily Atack: Adulting (W), a reality TV series in which Atack, with the help of family, friends, and that most trusty of agony aunts, social media, sets herself a bunch of “adulting challenges”. These are less about putting on the Fill Your Face helmet in the Bushtucker trials and more like taking her cousin’s stepdaughter to soft play – which many find more terrifying than a kilogram of mealworms heading up their nose holes.
