It would be nice if the rest of the GMG sites didn’t buy into the “dangerous/problematic” line of criticism so heavily.
Ps I also think the Confederate show could have been really interesting and it’s frustrating that a kneejerk reaction to a terrible press release killed it. Sure, if you say the Game of Thrones guys are in charge of it it sounds terrible, but if you say Nichelle Tramble Spellman, a black woman who was a writer and… Read more
The 13 Reasons Why example is one of the reasons I find the overuse of the dangerous label frustrating. When it was first released I remember trying to explain to people that the criticism meant it literally — that the way the show explicitly depicted suicide has been credibly linked to triggering suicide attempts in… Read more
I’m kind of impressed at Jezebel for running this.

A female friend of mine is the same way. She hates guys with frail hands.
I’m here to weigh in on the hand thing. I dated a guy with strange, skinny fingernails. Also, he bit them. He was so strong in the eye-dept (the most intense, multicolored green) but it wasn’t enough to make me want him touching me. I think this is extra petty of me because I have the chewed-up hands of an eight year… Read more
That’s not what money laundering is.
I know. Plenty of Republicans can’t/couldn’t stand Trump, but they understood the power of SCOTUS and the rest of the federal judiciary. If something happens to RBG, even a complete Democratic takeover in 2020 won’t be able to undo the damage for decades.
Ah, the classic WTF am I supposed to do with this stupid thing situation.
