The Toast just somehow hired Roxane Gay to run its forthcoming Roxane Gay vertical which will be called The Butter! Here’s Jess Zimmerman’s extremely well-timed column about Gay’s book Bad Feminist. Setting aside a lot of obligatory we’re not worthy-ing from the Toast team, I’d like to point out that literally no other site is more worthy, and internet publishers of all kinds would do well to pair up this event and the Awl’s recent ginger simul-poaching and draw some lessons about the relative merits of focusing on metrics vs focusing on quality and voice and letting good people get on with their dang work.
