If we think of the douchebag as a social identity as much as an accusation, as a subject with a distinctive persona locatable within the categories of race, class, gender and sexuality, then we find that the term carries a remarkably precise definition.
 
The douchebag is someone — overwhelmingly white, rich, heterosexual males — who insist upon, nay, demand their white male privilege in every possible set and setting.
 
The douchebag is always a white guy. But he is more than that. The douchebag is the demanding 1%, and the far more numerically significant class of white, heterosexist men who ape and aspire to be them. Wall Street guys are douchebags to be sure, but so is anyone looking to cash in on his white male privilege.
 
This narrowness of categorization — perhaps unique in the history of America’s rich history of racial and sexual slurs — is what makes the word douchebag such a potentially useful political tool.

This is a great, interesting, insightful, long read.

brainstormye said: I am going to try NaMoWriMo, if for no other reason than to get myself into the habit of daily writing. Any advice?

neil-gaiman:

Well done, even if all you’ve done is decide to do it. The best advice I have for you is…

0) Have a story to tell. Know something about it, even if you don’t have it all plotted out.

1) Write every day. Make your word count. Train everyone to leave you alone while you’re writing.

2) Look at the pep talks on the NANOWRIMO website. Here’s mine: http://nanowrimo.org/pep-talks/neil-gaiman
