Two of our strongest female writers teamed up to reinvent weak men.

The 6 Male Characters Women Never Get to See in Movies

If you have spent time on the Internet, you’re probably tired of hearing how we need more Strong Female Characters. For some reason, people don’t seem to realize that sexism no longer exists today and both sexes are treated with complete equality, especially in the entertainment industry. If anything, men are the ones being discriminated against. … It’s time to stop this woman-centric hand-wringing on how to make female characters better and focus on helping the real victims of Hollywood sexism by asking: How can we make male characters worse?

I originally wrote this as part of a response to Tess Fowler’s brave-as-hell decision to name Brian Wood as the dude who’d harassed her at a convention. Posting it again, on its own, because there are some things I want to expand on…

Every time I have a conversation with another woman about…

So, there’s a small flock of turkeys in my neighborhood…

If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don’t bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who rest assured are not dumb and are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible psychological reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV Spring Break on Primary Day. By all means stay home if you want, but don’t bullshit yourself that you’re not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard’s vote.

I’d like to remind people again that Allen Ginsberg was a pedophile and rapist, got off on sexual abuse, and supported NAMBLA. That’s the face his victims saw above them. Think about him raping kids while you see how “deep” and “cool” he seems as played by Daniel Radcliffe.

Don’t see Kill Your Darlings.

I’m sick of seeing this utter shit on my dash and no discussion of this.

Thank you for all the signal boosting, I REALLY appreciating it. Apparently NO ONE knows about this (so I’ll try and be less furious about the lack of discussion). Also the text is from Andrea Dworkin’s book, I had to screencap it.But please signal boost, people DO NOT know about this, it’s something that’s being smothered. People are going to see this movie without know the truth, help your followers make an informed choice.

(also, I doubt Daniel Radcliffe knows about this, he seems like a stand up guy, and like I said, no one talks about it. I mean he MIGHT, he just seems like a nice progressive dude so I hope not.)

Ohio State’s marching band did a halftime show about movie blockbusters and it’s amazing.  THEY MAKE A T REX ON THE FIELD AND IT EATS THE DRUM MAJOR.  

(gif of the T Rex)

This is amazing.

THIS IS THE BEST, BEST MOST IMPORTANT EVENT IN HISTORY

SO MUCH INCREDIBLE STUFF. SEMI-LITERAL SHOTS FIRED AT MICHIGAN.

THIS MAKES ME PROUD TO BE A BUCKEYE AND MY INNER MARCHING BAND GEEK IS GOING APE SHIT! They made Clark Kent go into a phone booth and come out as super man and keep a skyscraper from falling over. AMAZING.

At times it is very easy for me not to like this football team, even though deep down there is some Buckeye pride. Obnoxious fans and strength of schedule are two reasons.

However, there is no denying the badassery of TBDBITL. Damnit.

I’m a college basketball girl, but I have to say I look forward to the Ohio St. marching band every year.

Woo! Marching band stuff!

Not going to lie - any time I see something like this I cry because it’s a wonderful example of just how awesome humans can be when they work together. This shit is CRAY, YO. It involves a lot of people working together. It involves a few people who thought “yeah, this will work if we do it like this.” It’s HUGE and it’s WONDERFUL and it MAKES PEOPLE SMILE.

Marching bands, flash mobs, where the hell is Matt…these videos always make me cry happy tears because it’s just so much fun.

17 October: Your favourite one-time companion?↳ Cameca

Played by Margot van der Burgh (Countess Lydia in Anna Karenina [1977]), Cameca was the Doctor’s first love interest, an elderly woman in s01s06: The Aztecs. They made cocoa and got engaged, and it was all absolutely adorable.

Seconded.

So say you are a bored Geographic Information Systems analyst and you are given a High Definition poster of the city you are most familiar with. What do you do? Why, you nitpick of course!

Things of Note:

  • There is no way the Washington Monument should be that far East. Just…no
  • 14th Street should be east of the Washington Monument.
  • The Holocaust Museum has vanished. I don’t know what the fuck that building is supposed to be next the Bureau of Engraving.
  • Using the Kutz Bridge for reference, West Potomac Park is gone, as is the peninsula that has the MLK and FDR memorials.
  • Let’s give everyone the benefit of the doubt that the white building between Steve’s legs is the WWII memorial. (Hee. Hee heh.)

FROM THIS INDEPTH ANALYSIS I CAN ONLY CONCLUDE THAT THE PLOT OF CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIERIS THAT BUCKY BARNES IS STEALING AND/OR MOVING ALL OF OUR NATIONAL LANDMARKS. THIS IS CLEARLY A JOB FOR CAPTAIN AMERICA.

You’re welcome, sorry if I spoiled that for you. At least Steve’s ass looks great.

Bucky is then stopped by Carmen Sandiego because ain’t nobody stealing her schtick.

But mostly, I remembered what I’ve always believed. What my mom taught me. That while some things are just plain awful, most things in life can be seen either tragic or comic. And it’s your choice. Is life a big, long, tiresome slog from sadness to regret to guilt to resentment to self-pity? Or is life weird, outrageous, bizarre, ironic, and just stupid? Gotta go with stupid. It’s not the easy way out. Self pity is the easiest thing in the world. Finding the humor, the irony, the slight justification for a skewed, skeptical optimism. That’s tough.
