I'm a Laurie Penny fanboy, and give her money every month via Patreon specifically so she can do this type of writing.

She single-handedly popped the Milo Yiannalopopoloppoulus bubble that led directly to his current state of destitution. That article was brilliant.

Just like this one...

Oddly enough she appears to have written two articles about the experience.

Yeah, that was before she started her Patreon. She would rewrite articles for other publications to pay rent. Now she can cover rent, travel, and living expenses from the Patreon, so she is more free to choose only the most rewarding work.
