I loved how her character could’ve so easily divulged into a spiritual Messiah, hippy dippy BS stereotype. And instead she was just a cold-hearted, androgynous entrepreneur. When people would come to her for advice I always expected her character to dribble out some pseudo-intellectual spiritual mumbo jumbo, and every… Read more
I dug Holly Hunter big time. I saw her as a kind of potential enemy, and I liked her subtle method of playing a villain and escalating her power over people. But I gotta say... the wig was magnificent
I enjoyed Tippy’s little guy friend too. Platonic male/female friendship is dope.
One of my favorite things about Top of the Lake (other than Moss’ performance) is that they made her boyfriend an actual good dude. He wasn’t creepy. He wasn’t secretly anyone’s attacker. He just felt bad about not being able to do more when he was younger and Moss’ character got attacked.
Is it naive of me to hope that Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj have a sit down and Nicki explains the whole thing to Taylor, and then Taylor gets it and starts speaking out about racism in the music industry? Because while she is totally wrong, I feel like I really do understand why TSwift felt attacked here, considering… Read more
This clearly flies in the face of everything that Maxxism stands for. Hell you might as well just go to Lenins & things.
Also: the pitch at which women and men do vocal fry tends to be very close to the same pitch, but obviously the way that women and men speak with “normal” voicing is very different, so the fall in pitch from women’s normal voicing to vocal fry is more dramatic than the same fall in men’s voices. This means that vocal… Read more
I do research on vocal fry as a masters student in linguistics. Myths about vocal fry (but also women’s language in general) are very frustrating, but especially the fact that it’s a woman-only phenomenon. Read more
this is trolling but honestly it sounds great to me.
“I did it for all the fierce black women on the front lines of the movement and for all the little black girls who are watching us. I did it because I am free.” There are moments when living right here and right now are transcendental. For all of the sorrows and sadness and the unfairness that formed the forge from… Read more
My hair is the strawberry blond I was born with. So I’m not sure who you are talking to. Me or the author. Insulting women based on their fashion choices is immature and lame.
Kewl asshat can’t defend the mysogonistic practices and highlighted in this article but wants to be sure their hate and fear of and for women shines through so insults appearance. In a super lame way.
And I don’t understand why people continue to use this as a smoke screen, as though Ramsay and Sansa’s marriage was 1) inevitable within this particular plot and 2) the only way we could have possibly taken Sansa’s plot. I’m not mad that Ramsay acted like himself once he married Sansa. I’m angry that in all the… Read more
I think a lot of the problem comes from the fact that the show runners have consistently changed the books to add more rape than they had already. In the books, it’s not Sansa that marries Ramsay, but someone else pretending to be Sansa. They choose to cut that character out entirely, but keep the rape.
I imagine the idea is that we want to appreciate Ride as an astronaut, and the much publicized fact of her as the first American woman in orbit. She was obviously more intensely private about the lesbian part, and, frankly, it's one of the least interesting things about her career. I think the article makes a good… Read more
