The problem is that there’s no standard that really works... There are plenty of HORRIBLE anti-feminist/anti-women movies that pass the Bechdel Test. And plenty of great, feminist movies that don’t. Black Panther didn’t pass, for example, because the female characters (who almost exclusively spoke to each other about Read more

Hmmmm I’m an Alabama voter and I don’t love this but I’m reserving judgment on this one. If he was really going to back down on his Democrat principles, it would’ve been during the election. The fact that he ran as a true-blue Dem (pro-choice, pro-LGBTQ, pro-DACA, anti-white supremacy) in ALABAMA tells me that he’s Read more

As a white Alabama woman, I can tell you that for white people, but especially white women, it all came down to abortion. I tried to use every logical and illogical argument you can think of, even ones I personally disagreed with (“senators can’t do anything about abortions”, “thou shalt not murder (aka abortion) Read more

Alabama resident here: I’m cautiously optimistic that we won’t. I don’t know about outside the city, but here in Birmingham Moore is EXTREMELY unpopular, even with the Trumpiest of white suburban women I know. But then again I was sure Hilary would win so who the fuck knows these days

It’s 2017, so of fucking course the actor that played my adult male fantasy has to go the COMPLETE opposite direction with his life

People with legal sex work jobs need it for advertising purposes these days. As much as it would personally squick me out to search for my favorite porn stars on facebook and follow them or whatever, some people like that sort of shit. The same way people like to follow actors and musicians to know more about their Read more

Alabamian here... legit hoping Moore wins this runoff because so many people hate him that they’ll vote for Doug Jones (dem) in the real election. Probably a pipe dream but like... this is Alabama. My expectations are so low they’re basically non-existent

The photo on this article definitely looks like that girl is being kidnapped

I’m personally voting for the female aesthetic of fucking. men. UP! Succubi, La Llorona, Baba Yaga... let’s just make it really clear we aren’t wearing this makeup for them

I am a twentysomething youth that is too poor to live on her own right now... my dad recently retired and after ~15 years of having a cleaning service come in twice month to help with the deep cleaning (mopping, dusting, anything in the bathroom), decided it would be best financially not to do this anymore. I keep my Read more

No she’s said some SUPER problematic things about race (read her original postings about American wizards and Native Americans and Civil Rights). Also, as the ladies at “Witch, Please” point out, there wasn’t actually that much textual representation in the books, but lots of weird stereotypes mapped onto non-human Read more

Ugh gross! Don’t get me wrong I love young Jonathan (before he becomes an asshole) and George will always be #1 but it’s NOT. FUCKING. ABOUT. THEM. This is the worst

I think since the Tortall books are for YA before the genre became as thematically dense as it is now (Hunger Games, Altanta Burns, etc.), it wouldn’t be as easy for them to screw it up. Like that’s a world that’s built but can also be expanded upon with more adult themes that we don’t always get to see. I would give Read more

Maybe if they combined their org structure but kept most activities separate? I hate that children get raised so gendered but I agree with other comments about boys and girls needing spaces to be with other boys and girls minus the gender politics they’ve been conditioned to play. That being said... I think both Read more

Well if your a feminist that doesn’t believe in monogamy then they’re kinda right... but since he had already bought into the monogamy game by marrying, that’s not a real argument here.

Hi I just came here to say I like your username... Why can’t HBO’s next project be the Tortall novels instead of reanimating the already undead corpse of the Civil War?

Until you said their ages, I honestly thought this was going to be a story of two older Gen-Zers who were given old man/lady names by their hipster parents and found love despite being named “Gertrude”
