DISCUSSION: “Cat Person” by Kristen Roupenian; “People Are Slut-Shaming the Protagonist of “Cat Person” & It Proves a Disappointing Point” by Lucia Peters; “Aziz Ansari, Cat Person, and the #MeToo Backlash” by Anna Silman

Think about “Cat Person” in relation to any of the other readings or viewings we have done so far this semester. How is it presenting similar ideas? What new conversations is it raising? How does the short story form allow the author to explore these ideas differently than might be done in a traditional, expository format?
