YEAH. Not only is he the worst though, but he’s the guy that the author chose to write a book about. His story is the one that gets told, he’s the one we’re supposed to identify with and root for.
Hoo boy, if you liked Alice, you might not like book 3. I loved her character and it made me hate book 3.
I read it as “tauntrum” and thought you were making a Star Wars pun at first : D
as long as they keep churning out good movies.
This is beautiful, thank you for sharing. The difference between the versions breaks my heart.
I actually didn’t like the spinning camera, I wish they had kept a static, silent last shot like for all the other Star Wars.
I knew about it going in, but I’m disappointed all over again that the radiant Lupita Nyong’o was hidden behind a CGI character. I loved Maz, but I would have loved even more to see Lupita in some gorgeous space couture. When I saw the woman who was the First Order informant, I thought “Why couldn’t that have been…
I was so disappointed in Captain Phasma! Her only job was to order a massacre and then suck and get captured immediately.
God, I wish they would make KOTOR into a movie. I’ve never been so floored by a twist in a video game.
Yeah, I’m at the age where I can go either way depending on how I dress and if I wear makeup.
I read the woman’s post this way too, but then I have a very difficult relationship with my mom. When she calls, I don’t pick up. I never call her unless I absolutely have to. I don’t enjoy spending time with her and don’t see why I should subject myself to a conversation of being constantly criticized and interrupted.
This is awful. I like a lot of Kink.com’s stuff and always thought that they could be trusted to take care of their performers. The thought that I might have gotten off to someone unwillingly being abused makes me sick.
Yeah, I actually don’t mind referring to women as “females” if you refer to men as “males” too. It just raises my hackles if someone only uses “females”.
Cool. Does this mean we can chill out on the baby joke shit? It’s really demeaning and sexist to a talented female artist to reduce her to her looks.
I think it’s that (bad) parents tend to feel competitive towards their kids of the same sex, or they identify wayyy too much with them and try too hard to improve them.
I think a lot of the problem is that there are just so few women currently in tech. So if you have a statistically normal distribution, with a smaller group, you’re going to get less outliers and less extreme outliers.
I know women in the tech industry, and I personally never ever heard stories of discrimination.
ALTHOUGH. It has so much potential for the long game. Allie could start introducing tiny little typos, little inaccuracies, that eventually metastasize into a full-blown novel of craziness as dark beings from the nether regions invade our dimension through the portal that is 500 Days of Kristin.
I’m amused by it at a piece of performance art even if I never read it anymore. But I’m enraged that so many amazing sites that people put genuine work into are being shuttered (The Vane, Millihelen), and this trivial piece of irony gets to continue.
I loved the idea of Jezebel as a women’s lifestyle site. A little politics, some book reviews, op-eds, thighlights, etc. etc. It hasn’t been that in a very long time.
