'S-tty Media Men' list sparks 'Spartacus'-like movement

'S-tty Media Men' list sparks 'Spartacus'-like movement

Take everything with a grain of salt. "If you see a man you're friends with, don't freak out". The names of 14 men were "highlighted in red to denote more than one accusation of sexual assault or rape", she wrote. "I would never put in the creator of the list if they didn't want to be named". But inevitably, it did.

Read the full article here. It was attacked in commentaries as irresponsible.

For months, the creator of the controversial list remained a mystery to the general public.

However, her hopes of keeping the list private and shielded from the public eye failed when Buzzfeed revealed the existence of the list in an article and the entire contents of the list was posted on Reddit. She then added, "We'll get another advertiser".

Then, late Wednesday night, a lengthy piece was published in NY magazine's the Cut website.

Social media support for Donegan has been swift and overwhelming, with a copious amount of media women, non-binary people, and men thanking her for her bravery. "My name is Moira Donegan".

TRAI cuts ISD incoming call termination charge to 30 paise/minute
Indian telecom operators are already going through severe financial issues, and this move will further increase their woes. Back in February 2015, TRAI increased the ITC to 53 paise per minute from 40 paise per minute.

Nonetheless, in anticipation of having her name released, Donegan instead outed herself in a first person essay on The Cut. "Like a lot of feminists, I think about how women can build power, help one another and work toward justice", she wrote. Neither Donegan nor The New Republic responded to HuffPost's requests for comment. She is listed on the site of the New Republic as a former assistant editor of the magazine.

"At the rally in Columbus Circle, protesters chanted for President Trump to resign: So far, 19 women have gone on the record to accuse him of sexual misconduct", she wrote in a piece published on the London Book Review. "I was naive because I thought that the focus would be on the behavior described in the document, rather than on the document itself", she wrote. It was online for only 12 hours but gathered the names of more than 70 men.

"The anonymous, crowdsourced document was a first attempt at solving what has seemed like an intractable problem: how women can protect ourselves from sexual harassment and assault", she added. Despite this, the list became public, after which several men named on the list were investigated by their employers and either quit or were fired. And thanks to Donegan's essay, which is very good and well worth your time, we know in her own words why. "The outrage made it seem inevitable that my identity would be exposed even before the Roiphe piece ran", she wrote. I declined and heard nothing more from Roiphe or Harper's until I received an email from a fact checker with questions about Roiphe's piece.

Dayna Tortorici, the editor of n+1 magazine, tweeted that she had learned a "legacy print magazine" was planning to publish an article revealing the identity of the creator. "All I can say is: don't. It's not the right thing to do". If this were true, she said, "the backlash is well and truly here and it will NOT be pretty". As protests about Roiphe's piece escalated, Nicole Cliffe, the co-founder of the Toast, quickly offered to compensate writers with pieces pending at Harper's who pulled their submissions. Multiple women, including Lexi Alexander, Jenn Hoffman, Mandy Stadtmiller, Ana Breton, Marisa Kabas, Jenny Jaffe and Kate Pasola among others pulled an IRL "I am Spartacus", tweeting that they were the author. "If someone comes for the woman who started the list", she said, "they better be ready to come for us all". "I am not "outing" anyone". Donegan had been approached by a Harper's fact checker, however.

Her point, timely and devastating, arguably also applies to an embattled contrarian like Roiphe-or at least, it describes an experience the embattled contrarian writer would probably also recognize. "I only wanted to create a place for women to share their stories of harassment and assault without being needlessly discredited or judged". On Tuesday, 100 prominent French women - including the actress Catherine Deneuve - signed an commentary saying that they have had enough with France's version of the #MeToo campaign. She says her life has changed dramatically in the aftermath. "I wrote about it for @TheCut".

"The experience of making the spreadsheet has shown me that it is still explosive, radical, and productively unsafe for women to say what we mean", Donegan wrote.
