At the height of the "#MeToo has gone too far" movement, Stranger alum and New York Times columnist Lindy West wrote a column titled "Yes, This Is a Witch Hunt. I’m a Witch and I’m Hunting You." In the column, West argued that the criminal justice system doesn't adequately deliver justice to victims of sexual assault, and that she believes the number of sexual assault reports do not, in fact, exceed the number of sexual assaults in this country. And so, obviously, the #MeToo movement has not gone "too far," you fucking morons—and, yes, she's looking at you, Woody Allen. But, because she's Lindy West, she said all of that with enough clarity, force, and humor to make even the most panicked of sex-panicky cautioneers crack a smile. Her new book, The Witches Are Coming, uses that column as a launching pad to explore an issue that could use a little more light. by Rich Smith
