David Futrelle: Writer and Blogger
I'm a longtime writer and blogger living in Chicago.
Right now most of my energy goes into my blog We Hunted the Mammoth, devoted to tracking and mocking what I call the New Misogyny online. I've written about the misogyny driving the Men's Rights movement for The American Prospect and the Good Men Project.
And yes, I'm also the guy behind the Confused Cats Against Feminism blog, a bit of a viral hit that's gotten media mentions in more than two dozen outlets, ranging from The Guardian to Cosmopolitan to Le Monde. (For a more complete list, see here.)
I've been writing on topics ranging from gender and culture to money and technology for more than twenty years, mostly as a freelancer.
Starting in the late 1990s, I covered tech and investing, at first for Newsday and the now-defunct Upside magazine, then as a staff writer at Money magazine. More recently, I blogged on money and business for Time.com.
I've also written numerous pieces on books, culture and technology for such places as Salon, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times Book Review, The Nation and the sadly-deceased Lingua Franca. I also worked as an editor at In These Times magazine back in the 90s.
I've been interviewed about my blogs and misogyny in general for Newsweek, Mother Jones, Vice (twice), and Catster, among other places. I''ve made appearances on both Al Jazeera English and Al Jazeera America and have been interviewed for NPR's On Point With Tom Ashbrook and All Things Considered as well as the Femisphere radio show on Winnipeg's CKUW (see the show for 6/26/14).
