Rollins's Review, December 30
On my favorite Substack columns this week
This is how it is. I could not improve on this essay on the fundamental cruelty and inhumanity of wokeness by H. P. De Veer if I tried.
Principled Bicycling, by Green Leap Forward, is one of those blogs that isn’t about what you think it’s about, while at the same time being about exactly what you think it’s about. I’ve been waiting GLF to post something new so I could boost their blog, which is one of the best on Substack.
bitches gotta eat! by samantha irby is willfully dumb and laugh-out-loud funny. Well worth reading.
I have no idea if Clandestine of Clandestine’s Newsletter is on the level or not, or if any of what’s being said in this post is true. It’s thought-provoking (and spicy as hell), though.
Ken White of The Popehat Report is a divisive figure. His legal analysis is funny and incisive, though, and as an acquired taste myself, I’ve decided I don’t give a shit if he’s divisive—I enjoy reading him.
Megha Lillywhite is the best writer on the subject of femininity, period. If she has something to say about womanhood, or what it is to be a woman, I’m on board.
I try not to boost Substack’s whales too much in these weekly Review posts. Jesse Singal’s post on the distinction between wrongness and harmfulness was so good, and so timely, it seemed like it was worth breaking that rule. Jesse is one of my favorite The Last Reasonable Man journalists, and worth reading in any case. This post is characteristically excellent.

It's one of my goals to write something in 2023 worthy of Rollins's Review!
Thanks Jay, looks like there’s some humanity left out there after all
