In this week’s DoubleX Gabfest, editor Hanna Rosin joins nymag.com staff writer Noreen Malone and DoubleX managing editor Allison Benedikt to discuss the media reaction to Mark Zuckerberg’s new wife Priscilla Chan, accusations that Wired’s GeekDad cover is sexist, and a lawsuit to reverse the military’s ban on women in combat.
Hanna Rosin recommends that you check out the company Evil Mad Science and buy some project kits for your kids.
Noreen Malone suggests that you listen to the new Icona Pop song, “I Love It” while drinking a sloe gin fizz.
Allison Benedikt requests that you read Michael Wolff’s grueling-but-worth-it New York magazine feature on his slowly dying mother, “A Life Worth Ending.”
Other items discussed in the show:
- Noreen’s Daily Intel post on judging Priscilla Chan
- Michael Lewis’s 2005 LA Times piece, “How To Put Your Wife Out of Business”
- Jezebel’s post against the GeekDad cover, Wired Magazine Can’t Seem To Stop Alienating Women
