I'm Lena Chen, a writer, activist, and media producer who's been called a "skank" (by Bill O'Reilly) and "a small Asian woman" (by The New York Times). My favorite part of my workday is the hate mail.For the unlikely story that is my life, read on.
This may very well be the first time The Crimson’s made me laugh since Alexandra Petri was a columnist! I couldn’t be less enthused about the presidential election right now, and the only reason I’m even bothering to register to vote is in order to weigh in on a couple ballot initiatives in Massachusetts. I’m done with American politics, done with America, and feel so vindicated that I’m not the only person fed up with the fact that elections are treated like the freaking Olympics by the news media.
I have never registered with a political party, and I cannot imagine a future in which I ever do.
