In this week's gabfest, DoubleX founding editor Hanna Rosin, managing editor Jessica Grose, and editor Kate Julian discuss some troubling responses to the sexual assault of CBS reporter Lara Logan, a new study about bullying published in the American Sociological Review, and Katherine Ellison's op-ed about Julie Schenecker, a mother accused of murdering her two teens, in the New York Times.

The DoubleX weekly "coffee talk" endorsements:

Hanna Rosin endorses her daughter Noa's spelling bee triumph and the bravery of Tal al-Mallouhi, the young Syrian blogger who has been imprisoned by her government on espionage charges.


Kate Julian recommends the HBO documentary Google Baby, which is about the booming surrogacy industry in India.

Jessica Grose recommends the MSNBC story "Mean Old Girls: Seniors Who Bully" and the dog breed Great Pyrenees, which she admired on TV in the Westminster Dog Show and in real life.
