Yeah, that was my thought, too. That and the line about testosterone not being inherently male, because women can produce it, too. While this is technically true, being born with testes that primarily pump out testosterone vs. the generally very small amounts produced by ovaries, is not the same thing. I feel like Read more

To add on that, it wasn’t just her, but another trans athlete then took that other top spot while competing. While the article does mock a lot the fact that the girl who made the complaint came in sixth in the race, it does ignore the girls who came in 3rd and 4th. It is true that those girls did not complain, at Read more

I’m so torn on this article. At the same time, I’m deeply sympathetic towards Andraya about her struggles and the abuse she had to face. She is a person who should be allowed to live her life without being the focus of such mean spirited persecution. However, at the same time, I already knew from past experience on Read more

In a more sane world, everyone would just use the NCAA’s testosterone policy, and then be open to monitoring outcomes over the course of years or even decades as we continue to accrue more observations of trans athletes. This is a topic where I don’t really care about people’s opinions right now. I think the Read more

Instead she asks if he’s heard about the “face-swap” fantasy that Trump and Joe Biden had literally swapped faces (a scenario propagated by an anonymous 4chan poster, likely a troll). He finds that reassuring, and she warmly hangs up and laughs to someone camera: “I’m just fucking with him at this point, I’m over it.” Read more

Bruhhh this is so embarrassing. Imagine being as rich and successful as this and still giving a shit about a throwaway line from a not very good netflix show. Just go take a bath in diamonds or something, Taylor.

As much as I would love that photo to be real, it seems to be a fake that swapped actual T**** for Golden Idol T****. Though the actual photo is just as disturbing, but for different reasons.

Definitely grew up with christian rock in middle school. Went to a few christian music festivals. As a family and church we were never conservative, so didn’t buy into the whole “come down and be saved” part of the experience, but overall good nostalgic vibes. I realize that many people are excluded from these things Read more

They could study Neera Tanden. While I am disgusted the focus is on her “mean” tweets, Tanden is no ally of working people. This is one nomination scuttled that is a good thing. Read more

The Amazon documentary (which I will never stop recommending despite being on Amazon) was both horrifying for realizing just how poorly the story was reported (I was a tween when it hit the news), but also a tiny bit gratifying because WOW, the filmmakers sure gave him enough rope to hang himself and she seems to Read more

My read (and honestly why I enjoy it) was always that you know he’s a creep from the jump, but the book is well written enough that, from time to time, you find yourself believing his little hero’s tale before you snap out of it and are like uggggghhh wtf man. But in my opinion it’s sort of peak into a sick psyche, so Read more

Yeah, all of his films are pretty much, “They can’t get enough of me! Young, old, young, young, younger, whatever... ME, the bespectacled nebbish with attractive characteristics...”

I recently watched the newer Bates Motel series and thought it was great. Honestly was better than I expected (not too sure what I was expecting). The acting is great, and they do a great job of building Norman’s story, watching him slowly fall deeper into his psychosis. And I really liked how they ended they ended Read more

If Heidi had gone down to Cancun with the girls to escape the power outages, I wouldn’t have had a problem with it. Less than perfect optics for Ted, but they have the means to get the hell out of there, and very few people would blame them. Ted, tho? HARD NO.

Ted should have let his family go away and stayed in Read more

Honestly now I want to see the group texts after the NYT leak. Gotta be some good “Texas loyalty” screeds in there.

I know there probably isn’t a lot of crossover in the audiences, but Legion really underscored how dance can be used to express conflict along the same lines as WSS.
