Attacking their humanity...?
Thanks for the reply! Of course we can be friends.
What really disturbs me is that the show keeps killing off its black characters. Chancellor Jaha is the only one who's stuck it out this far. Heck, Wells Jaha was one of the main characters in the book, and the show killed him off in week 3. And since then, the life expectancy of black characters on the ground has…
Oh I was JUST talking about this on my twitter. I'll just repeat:
Okay, it's pretty clear from this comment that I was completely and totally misunderstood. It's entirely possible that a lot of that was my own fault for not being more clear. I appreciate your measured response though so I do want to thank you for that.
GT just never learns does it?
I love you, but I'm gonna have to call bullshit on this. I've been thinking about this since yesterday and I think I've figured out why this essay really rubs me the wrong way.
Struggling to remember the affiliations of all the different characters on Game of Thrones and whether they're still alive? This massive chart keeps track of who is who on the show and what their current status is.
It was really difficult to find an intelligent discussion re: #cancelcolbert, so I'm glad I found your article. Not surprisingly, it's difficult to have a conversation about a show that most people, possibly not even the writers for the show, really understand. And I don't mean that as a "the show is so smart and…
I'm listening, but as a historian and not a social justice warrior I have more pertinent things to read, and rely upon people like you to clue me in to these cultural issues.
Getting Things Done, or GTD, is a system for getting organized and staying productive. It may seem complicated on the outside, but the end goal is to spend less time doing the things you have to do so you have more time for the things you want to do. Let's break it down and see how you can apply a simplified version…
Photography can be an expensive hobby. You spend hundreds, maybe even thousands, on a body, then you realize you need to dump a whole lot more money into lenses and accessories. Here are some quick and cheap(er) items you should add to your kit to make it more versatile.
Apologies in advance. This is way longer than I intended (please don't dismiss it!) but I disagree with what you said so very strongly, because you're giving a lot of credit to the idea that the advice from men is well-intentioned and not just borne out of plain ignorance or even distaste for female autonomy. The sad…
INSTITUTIONAL POWER: The ability or official authority to decide what is best for others. The ability to decide who will have access to resources. The capacity to exercise control over others.
Today, I finally saw the Paula Patton led movie, Baggage Claim, and it was.... a predictably mediocre romantic comedy. Girl meets guy, girl wants ring, guy cheats, girl shame spirals and tries to get any one of several ex-boyfriend to propose, girl's plan fails, girl realizes the right guy was (literally) next door…
There is a
longer more fleshed out essay on BEYONCÉ in the works, (which probably won't be published until next week at this rate) but in rewatching King Bey's magnum opus, I have been uncovering gem after gem of naked feminist ideology, and I can't get enough.
I'm back. Last time I mentioned Breaking Bad I was just at the beginning of Season 3. Well I've just finished Season 4 and hour ago and I'm about to go start on the much hyped Season 5 when I finish posting this.
