Imagine the baby that would result from a night of passion between Ebenezer Scrooge (before the spirits changed his ways) and Mr. Krabs from Spongebob. Now imagine that baby grew up and married the baby that would result from a night of passion between Yzma from the Emperor’s New Groove and Mr. Burns from the Simpsons. Now imagine the newlyweds had a baby of their own, and that baby was raised aboard a Ferengi Starship, where she was tutored in empathy and compassion by Lord Voldemort. Now imagine that baby grew up and someone told her that any opinions she might have or conclusions she might reach are based on objective logic and reason, and that anyone who disagrees with her is simply being irrational. Now multiply that person’s greed and heartlessness by 100 and you’ll begin to see something that comes close to resembling Ayn Rand.

“Sean never says a word. He just goes in and absolutely gives it to you. And he has, I think, one of the hardest jobs on the ship. He has to be the guy who doesn’t get to play the big emotion. He’s standing there and just giving strength. Yet you feel everything he is going through. And how much he’s doing. And how much he cares. And it’s… it’s very impressive.”

People magazine tried to delete this real quick, but I just wanted to let y’all know that no matter what, we’ll always be maids to some folks. 

I loved the characters in HTGAWM because they were relatable. Both my spouse and I share the experience of being among a handful of black students in a higher learning environment. And while that isn’t what the show is “about”, it’s important that these characters are represented because folks like to think of blackness as this very static, one dimensional thing and way of being. This too is indeed apart of the black experience, because well, we can’t all be rappers/reality stars. We are law professors and law students too!
I had already heard about the nonsense that was the NYT article, and I am not the least bit surprised by these comments from People Mag! The amount of racism that slides up into mainstream media as a “joke” is disgusting! No one expected Charlize Theron to look/act like her character in “Monster” after the film was done. No one expected Jennifer Connelly to act like an addict after she finished “Requiem for a Dream”. I could go on and on with this list. These are professional ACTORS! Once the role is done, that’s it. However, this tweet highlighted the fact that “they” think Viola’s character from “The Help”, is in fact, apart of her identity. Y’all are going to be waiting a long fucking time for her to repeat those lines because in case y’all forgot, Viola majored in theatre at Rhode Island College, graduated in 1988 and in 2002 she received an honorary doctorate in Fine Arts from the college. She also attended the Juilliard School for four years, as a member of the Drama Division’s Group 22. She’s an educated professional, not a fucking maid!

yes to most of this, and i just want to really stress that maids and other domestic workers shouldn’t be thrown under the bus in an attempt to (rightly) defend viola from racism and disrespect.
also to contextualize this tweet, people magazine reportedly told a former editor (who is now suing for racial discrimination), that she needs to “talk like everyone else [there because] she’s not at essence anymore.” they also suggested that ciara wouldn’t keep her loc extensions for her wedding because the wedding was supposed to be elegant.

GO WATCH THIS SHOW, HONESTLY IT IS SO AMAZING. 

IF THIS POST CREATES 1 NEW PUSHING DAISIES FAN MY LIFE = MADE. 

Alright let me help out then:

1) Most of the cast is female. In fact only two main characters are male.

2) Both male characters take typically non-masculine hobbies. Emerson Cod knits almost non-stop and makes pop-up books. Ned is literally called “The Pie-Maker” because he bakes homestyle pies from his mother’s method. Both are shown to be very nurturing and even maternal characters. Conversely, the women? A pair of professional travelling show performers that have gritty sexual scandals the way men usually get (see the entire “Chuck’s father” storylines), a beekeeper who is the single most positive and optimistic character imaginable, and a former professional jockey- Three of four pro athletes.

3) You could very easily make the claim Ned is asexual.

4) Yes, the storyline is about romance. But it’s also about the positive side of a love story, and their only drama lies in overcoming their inability to actually share contact.

5) A very good friend of mine recommended this show to me as “Disney for adults.” I told her it was already on my list to watch because “It’s by Bryan Fuller, from Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me.” Bryan Fuller is now most known for “Hannibal.” The same camera methods and bright colours and lighting techniques Hannibal is known for? Perfected in this show, just using a different tone- The same colour methods in reverse, upping the vivid greens and yellows instead of reds and blues, which sells emotion both ways.

7) Probably one of the best examples of a modern day fairy tale possible.

8) Narrated by Jim Dale- The narrator for the HP audio books.

What’s Wrong With “Taking The Red Pill”?

“Take The Red Pill, And I’ll Show You How Deep The Rabbit Hole Goes.”
[…]
One of the key tenets of the Red Pill philosophy is that women are instinctively hypergamous– that they onlydatemen of “superior” status and are quite literally incapable of loving men unconditionally – and thus men must be as “alpha” as possible at all times. Of course, because women are also incapable of logic and reason and only respond to emotions, it’s only fair for men to play upon their psyches in order to get their way. One of the most popular ways of doing this is known as “dread” game – deliberately making your girlfriend fear your dumping her or breaking up with her. Various ways of inducing “dread” include:
Not answering her calls for a week
Hitting on her friends (in a plausibly deniable way)
Flirt with other women in front of her
Running extremelyhot and cold – being incredibly romantic one day and incredibly distant for three days after
If this sounds suspiciously like “emotional abuse”… well,that’s because it is.

I can not believe that there are men who think this “Red Pill” thing is a good idea.
