Not so hot take? Maybe let’s stop blaming actresses for decisions that were made 100% without their knowledge and probably by a white male production manager or production coordinator. Where’s the header photo of Adam Driver? Judd Apatow? The fucking CEO of HBO? I’ve worked on a lot of sets. When I was in film school, Read more

Not to say it isn’t wrong, but 125-150 per 12 is industry standard for production assistants. Does it suck? Yes. You spend years literally covered in PA juice — an endearing term of the liquid that oozes out of garbage bags. But we do it to learn with the hopes of climbing the ranks in an extremely competitive Read more

Absolutely zero chance of this. Do you know how big these productions are? The cast would have no knowledge or control over what anyone below the line gets paid. Not even the director would.

My mother was given a medication to induce drying up, don’t recall the name and can’t ask cause she’s dead but I remember her telling me about it. It exists but less likely to be offered now. The 80s seem to be pretty pro formula feeding.

Thanks to gerrymandering, there’s honestly not a lot half the country can do about it. We voted for Hillary over Trump; Trump gets elected. I’m in a red state, and we vote in our local elections, but somehow the Republicans just keep winning (because of gerrymandering). A lot of us would love to do something, but Read more

Shooting drills are commonplace and teachers undergo training about what to do in case of a school shooting before the school year starts, every year. My office recently had a local PD officer come in and instruct us on what to do in case of an active shooter (we’re located above a bank) and they played the 9-1-1 call Read more

Every time I see something like this happen (I hate that it has become so commonplace) I wonder why these schools don’t have metal detectors. I used to work in the public schools in a large-ish city and at every middle and high school everyone was required to go through the metal detectors upon entering, no Read more

My Kindergartener practices active shooter drills. They teach our babies how to hide and stay quiet so they don’t get murdered in their school.

I graduated high school in 2008 and I never did an active shooter drill or heard of anyone who did in the district. The school district didn’t not play when it came to expelling people. I know a girl who brought a kitchen knife to cut out name tags for the pta (yeah, I don’t believe it either) and she was swiftly Read more

At our university, we have measures in place to close off doors and hallways that also have double doors. Classrooms should have doors closed, which means they lock automatically. There’s a lot of other measures in place, but that’s a few of the obvious.

I was in elementary school from 1991-1997 and I’m pretty sure we had something like that already, even early during that period. They were codenamed “Stockton drills” and they were generally explained as being for an intruder alert on campus, but I’m sure guns factored into that since we basically had to practice Read more

They already exist. My daughter is in elementary school and they already have those drills. It’s called active shooter drill and they practice hiding and being silent. She’s in 1st grade and has to learn how to try to avoid a gun shooting at her school. Dropping her off today I was thinking about how unsafe her school Read more

With this flawless plan that just gave me a rage stroke on fb. For fucks sake, most schools can’t afford basic supplies, but okay.

I wouldn’t discredit the importance of school shooting drills. I agree that the most important thing is to fix gun laws and prevent guns being in someone’s hand in the first place, but when I was in elementary school 20 yrs ago, we had a separate school wide alarm for school shootings that sounded different from the Read more

I copy-edit erotica, and I notice that there’s a lot of breathy utterings of “yes”, and “keep going”, and “please, more” or whatever, and I think that that can help set the tone of “this is definitely consensual”. Read more

THEY. ARE. WRITING. FICTION. Sometimes, you don’t pause after undoing a bra strap, and if she keeps going with you, that’s consensual.

Tell you friend to quiet it down. Their neighbor’s kid was asking what a rogue was!
