Two years ago, the country was gripped by, of all things, a New Yorker short story called Cat Person by Kristen Roupenian, which dealt with the murky boundaries of sexual consent in modern dating. Recently, in n+1, Tony Tulathimutte published a short story, The Feminist, about the dangerous rage of a male feminist whose good deeds go sexually unrewarded. Diana, Millie, and Chris talk about both stories (as well as other books like The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf, Loner by Teddy Wayne, and The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. by Adelle Waldman) and the heightened emphasis our society places on dating.
