Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh had thoughts yesterday on the problems faced by Donald Trump, whose campaign for president is falling apart after a recording emerged of him boasting about sexually assaulting women.
RUSH LIMBAUGH: You know what the magic word, the only thing that matters in American sexual mores today is? One thing.

It's tempting to think that somewhere in Limbaugh is a decent man on the precipice of an epiphany: yes, consent is key to understanding rape. Never has it been made clearer what the barrier is: a conservative moral system in which consent is irrelevant.
As Limbaugh is useless at both decency and conservatism, though, we're left with the toxic sludge his paragraph represents—and all the men like Trump whose behavior it enables.

On the one hand, nostalgia is “a corruption of the historical impulse,” according to William Gibson. On the other hand, “Super Mario Bros.” will never not be cool. Luckily, there’s a way to satisfy that retro gaming while still keeping an eye on the future: The GameShell Kit. This thing is simultaneously the last handheld […]
