David Futrelle FAQ

I‘m a freelance writer and blogger living in Evanston, IL, with two awesome cats (pictured below, slightly greasy with eardrop residue).

I’ve been writing on topics ranging from gender and culture to money and technology for more than twenty years.

My writing has appeared in a wide variety of places, among them Broadly, TheCut, Salon,  HuffPost, Time.com, The American Prospect, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the New York Times Book Review. I was a staff writer at Money magazine for a number of years.

I was also behind the blog Confused Cats Against Feminism.

Here, as promised, are my cats, early in their careers as cats. Yes, they are much cuter than me.

Sweetie and Pantz, doing the kitten thing.

My thought would be do you send automatic emails out to subscribers or to humans in general? Thanks!

Hi David, found in the wild. Summary; story is about a mother who enforced an allergen-free birthday party for her 12-month old with severe food allergies. Baby’s father and his family refused to even try the allergen-free food and whined they wanted (dangerous) pizza. My comment:

“The audacity.
I hope that mother NEVER leaves her little one alone with her in laws. They sound like the type to deliberately give her “forbidden” foods because they don’t “believe” in allergies.
I hope she’s also re-examining her marriage. What kind of man prioritises his family’s desire to eat pizza over his daughter’s health???”

One Brad Sutton’s reply to me;
“one who is stuck with a wife who wants to rule the roost as self appointed dictator.
The husband gets an EQUAL say in the food.
He can have some non vegan food included and she can have some vegan food included.
A healthy compromise on food placement and safety measures is fine”.

He’s getting TRASHED, but continues to willfully miss the point. He’s actually used the word “misadry”.
