But she dresses American, so it’s okay.

I hate to tell you this, but Eastern Euros in general aren’t exactly known to be super cool with non-whites. The latest wife is probably the same.
Oh, I know. It’s why stuff like this exists:
“Politics, they say, is show business for ugly people. The real question is who writes the scripts and produces the acts. You are governed by the theater geeks from high school, who went on to make it big booking guests on the talk shows,” Gaetz writes. “Ignore them and they’ll ignore you, and you’ll go nowhere fast.… Read more
Oof, I read the first couple of Strike books and couldn’t get over how mean-spirited they are. Just full of awful stuff that, when you look back on, was present in Harry Potter, too—misogyny, fat shaming, transphobia, etc. etc. She has a weird obsession with describing how ugly people are, like GRRM and his food… Read more
I find it interesting that you say she’s not always great with instructions, and would be curious which other Youtube yoga channels you’d suggest instead? I’m very new to this whole world - over my life I’d say I’ve almost always had some kind of physical activity thing, to varying degrees of intensity - but I never… Read more
That fabric choice is really getting me. So, satin looks pretty when it’s nicely embroidered, and if she mess up the seams, it won’t be terrible, but I don’t know why she didn’t just pick a nice flannel? It would have been so much easier for her to stitch onto!
Were they trans though? I never thought they were, I assumed Montrose’s lover was gay and that group were drag queens. It’s like just cuz they had one trans character from the previous episode, everyone who dresses and looks like a woman is now trans?
You’re not wrong. LGBT culture is not as clearly defined as all that, and while many drag queens have identified as different gender identities, many did not. It’s misrepresenting them to assign a transgender label to people within a culture when you don’t know that’s what’s going on, anda misrepresentation of what… Read more
Absolutely—the fact that apparently Montrose’s love interest (from what we saw) also dresses as a cis man at home makes me think that even given the different times the term trans does not make sense for him. I think there’s a tendency (a very recent new one) to call drag queens (and I’m not even convinced this… Read more
I was having this same thought. This episode was all about metamorphoses, and we watch Ruby transform back and forth throughout. From the few people I’ve known in my small town drag scene, it seems that the transformation is an important and informative part of the experience, which helped the stories overlap for me… Read more
That was Shangela and Monet who are drag queens in the roles! Were they not just drag queens doing a little pageantry work with Montrose’s lover? I don’t think we know enough about them I guess, just label it all as queer henny.
The A-plot with Ruby was really incredible and well-done, one of the best storylines this show has done so far. Wunmi Mosaku is amazing in this role, and I’m so glad she’s gotten to take centre stage as Ruby. On the other hand, I really really wasn’t feeling Montrose’s subplot this episode. Everything he does and… Read more
Is it accurate to refer to Montrose’s lover and the other ball participants as “trans women,” or is that imposing a modern understanding on a historical phenomenon that wasn’t quite so clear cut? I’m not an expert on ball culture, by any means, but my understanding is that for some participants it was more about expres… Read more
Dana White is probably one of the most amoral assholes in all of sports. So this definitely won’t hurt McGregor within the sport should be announced a “comeback.”
Jesus Christ, another sexual assault allegation incident against McGregor? The dude is spinning out of control so hard and the enabling nature of those around him has to be insane. Especially since Conor had been tweeting about re-entering the testing pool as a sign that he was preparing a return to the UFC. Which had… Read more
