1) why are we demanding perfect 20 yr old female protagonists?

story in this week’s issue, “Cat Person,” is both an excruciating bad-date story and, I think, a kind of commentary on how people get to know each other, or don’t, through electronic communication. The story was inspired by a small but nasty encounter I had with a person I met online.

Highlights include our feature article, "Breaking the Silence: My Journey from Secrecy to Survival" and a Q&A about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and their impact on resilience and survival.

This issue also provides a reminder about the State’s annual Crime Victims’ Memorial Annual Brick Dedication Ceremony, an important update about voter registration confidentiality, an announcement about OPDV's two new Forem Fellowship grantees, and an explanation of the State's supportive housing initiative. Look at our publications page and place an order or download publications from our website.

Phase III of the Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative includes a Request for Proposals, issued by the New York State Office of Mental Health, that will provide $30 million in service and operating funding for at least 1,200 units of supportive housing for vulnerable populations experiencing homelessness, or who are at risk of homelessness, including domestic violence survivors.

See the RFP here OPDV Spring 2018 Bulletin The OPDV Spring 2018 bulletin focuses on the impacts on children who witness domestic violence.

It has struck a chord with women because it seems to closely mimic real-life modern dating.

However, male readers have reacted quite differently to the story - whether because they feel victimised, they are “not like other men,” or because the story forces men to look at their own actions.

tons of women in my feed are sharing the new yorker “Cat Person” story but not many men; which is unfortunate bc it’s like a secret window into a private experience our majority has suffered thru & if anyone needs to read that shit it’s men.

— Anya Jaremko-Greenwold (@Anya Jaremko) December 10, 2017 every single woman i've seen sharing this talks about how relatable it is, which is really fucking sad, but if you want to ~get it~, read this — Eleanor Gordon-Smith (@The Real EGS) December 9, 2017 It's am and I can't sleep because I'm still thinking about #Cat Person and how tons of women identify with it & have had experiences just like this or worse — but the men who read it, if they even do, will never ever think that maybe they are like this too — Martha Sorren (@marthasorren) December 11, 2017 I’m seeing so many takes about Cat Person that revolve around Margot being “selfish” and “vapid”.
