Ashley C. Ford, published a rebuttal to last night’s piece (also on Elle) explaining why Linda Chaver’s piece didn’t make sense. It’s really good as expected, so you should read the whole thing, but this is my favourite quote:
So... I have some... feelings about the execution of this but I want to see if I’m off base. What do you guys think about this “social experiment?” If I don’t reply right away it’s because I’m off to see STAR WARS! but I promise to come back after the movie’s over.
I don’t care how goddamn ridiculous this show is I watched every season and I loved the shit out of it. I learned a lot about photography and modeling and how to read a photograph from this show.
Franchesca Ramsey’s new video from her MTV series Decoded. I literally only knew one of these (g*psy) so it was kind of cool/completely bewildering to learn about the history of the language we use today.
NYT just released an interview with Nicki Minaj that you need to read immediately. It is so brilliant and amazing and feminist that it will make you forget that Rihanna trolled us all yesterday by calling Rachel Dolezal a hero without even giving us a release date to soften the trolly-ass blow.
Ok firstly, this is a pity party. I have an exam on Saturday and I’m woefully underprepared and I feel like shit and I missed the SuperBloodMoon because a demon toad was parked outside my door and I could not rebuke it. I’m moping.
Gather round my children. It’s story time.
So.... obviously Rihanna’s #BBHMM video slayed, which I knew it would because my queen never disappoints me. That said, the hot takes are flying fast and hard because that’s how white feminism operates.
“In essence, a fuckboy (sometimes stylized “fuckboi” or “fuccboi”) is a (usually straight, white) dude embodying something akin to the “man whore” label...”
What is it with people on the MP getting all huffy that if you get your nails done professionally you’re “on a power trip.” WHAT THE FUCK? And then others are chiming in about how getting your nails done is so gross and it’s demeaning to make people touch your feet. Umm....? I feel like that says more about what you…
Nooooooooo! I was really pulling for Cristela. I’m not Latina so I don’t get to say if it was an “authentic” show or not, but I genuinely enjoyed it. (Unlike white people) I really enjoy seeing shows centered on other minority cultures. I like seeing how much of their experience is like mine and how much of it is…
Is this why you like Rihanna, but not Nicki or Beyoncé? Genuinely not trolling lol. I know we chatted about it before and your distaste for she who shall not be named is legendary, but I agree with pretty much all of this.
Fuck Patricia Arquette. Really not here for this Patriarchal Patty bullshit being lauded as feminism.
Is anyone else having issues with Chrome right now? About 15 minutes ago it crashed for me and just refuses to reopen. I had to resort to Safari (THE HORROR). I can't tell if it's on my end or not. My Chrome has been crashing a lot lately and it's been really slow but I thought maybe it was my home wifi. Anyone?
