As admirably altruistic as it sounds, the problem with voluntourism is its singular focus on the volunteer’s quest for experience, as opposed to the recipient community’s actual needs.
There is no one that will be harder on Julian Casablancas than Julian Casablancas. Throughout the conversation, he refers to the “dead air” that precedes an answer he gives. He will stop speaking abruptly and declare his answers boring, and he will trip over himself in his general manner—and it’s helplessly endearing. There is also a profound division between the Julian Casablancas on the record and the one who converses while the tape recorder is off. He is an interested subject, but seemingly more interested in not being a subject. When he is not on the record, he’s curious and complimentary, and our conversation runs the gamut from shiitake mushrooms to nail polish. “Put a microphone in front of me…” he trails off, noting his own discomfort. Ironically, that’s what got him here in the first place

"For the record, feminism by definition is: ‘The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.’
I started questioning gender-based assumptions when at eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not.
When at 14 I started being sexualized by certain elements of the press.
When at 15 my girlfriends started dropping out of their sports teams because they didn’t want to appear “muscly.”
When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings.
I decided I was a feminist and this seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Apparently I am among the ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men and, unattractive.
Why is the word such an uncomfortable one?”
