That sort of thing is actually pretty common in sci-fi. Remember on Lost when Alex (Rousseau’s daughter who was raised by Ben) had a rebellious teenage phase defined by her desire to escape from the island and be like a “normal” teenager? Except she’d spent her whole life on the island without modern media, so there Read more

I agree that they’re definitely setting up Bahir as taking advantage of “utilities included” in a way that’s unsustainable for Fiona.

I love that video and song but I think this is when I got annoyed by the way Jewel plays with her voice.

Please don’t forget about the actual child who will have to deal with having this last name. This isn’t a political statement; it’s your beloved child’s eternal moniker. I have a difficult name and I’ve had to spend hours on the phone with social security (my name was spelled wrong on my social security card and birth Read more

It’s also because of his pretty curly hair. Richard Madden has talked about how directors never let him wear hats on cold shoots because he’s known for his hair.

Kstew would be everyone’s favorite indie starlet if she hadn’t done Twilight.

She has spoken about how men her own age put her down for being successful or try to use her. She might feel more secure dating someone who already has his own fame.

People have this weird need to overexplain the fact that she’s just naturally charismatic. That and the fact that her on-screen performances go incredibly deep. You don’t see journalists gushing over the ingrained and incredibly watchable charisma of male actors like Joshua Jackson or idk, Alfie Allen. I think there’s Read more

Jay-Z was already an established artist though. I’m not defending Willa per se, but remember Flickerstick? The band that won Bands on the Run? Their prize was a big showcase for the major labels and it was scheduled for 9/11. It was never rescheduled because that was the one day that all of the execs were free to be Read more

This may be complete BS, but I read that there was a weird thing with Scotland’s (or UK?) union rules, where they couldn’t fly in an American actress for a role that wasn’t a series regular, since she was only in one episode last season. Of course, now we’re stuck with her for the rest of the series anyway. But Read more

I won’t spoil you, but the Brianna character is really...harsh. So here’s a reference point for you: remember how on Buffy the characters were as “normal” as ‘90s TV teens could be? But then Dawn came along and the writers made her seem really immature, even though she was about the same age as Buffy in the first Read more

Gender reveal parties are dumb in concept but are mostly fine. Given how hard it is to socialize after having a baby, I don’t think it’s a bad idea to have a bonus gathering while you can.

I’m reminded of the blowback against RuPaul for using those words. Like you’re really going to act like RuPaul is the problem here? Ru’s so clearly on the correct side of the issues that attacking him makes it clear how much of a thought exercise (and not an effort to enact change outside of the internet) all of this Read more

Well it’s because it’s a question that draws attention to a specific hypocrisy in feminism, one I acknowledge I switch my views on depending on how it benefits me and those I care about. When I talk about wanting the same pay and rights as men, I deny that gender is innate. But when I defend my trans friends and Read more

I see it as one facet of the weird phenomenon wherein feminism becomes the dumping ground for people who don’t fit into other movements or, more tellingly, can’t get published anywhere else (see: the amount of gay men writing for sites that were launched with the aim of giving women voices and paying jobs). Is Read more

This, in turn, is not a surprising response from someone who took my comment to task for not accounting for the WOC reaction to the specific branch of the trans-centric conversation I was having with someone else.

I think it’s because the conversation about The Mindy Project ended up not giving us as much fuel as we internet-fighters wanted it to. We finally got a show led by a brown woman and I think maybe we were ashamed to then say she wasn’t giving us what we were expecting from her. Did we want to give this WOC the space Read more

Is there a way to talk about what happens when people benefit from male privilege (as in, others perceive them as male and treat them as such, regardless of their sense of their own gender) during their formative years and then transfer that to feminism after they transition? All women are welcome in feminism, but I Read more
