Hmmm I don’t know, cause when it get’s put like this it’s starts to come off as “you’re a racist” rather than, “you’re a weak writer.” She can deal with the first one she might lose her mind at the second.
I feel like she kind of got pushed into making a pride anthem to demonstrate her allyship, but she’s also probably not the best person to write one. The lyrics are clumsy for sure, and the message isn’t exactly revolutionary. But I think the sentiment is probably sincere and I love the representation in the video,…
Love this. Love her.
I think this a case of letting perfect stand in the way of good. I liked it & the end made me tear up a little.
The folks at Jezebel have a weird thing for tearing her down. She’s completely unremarkable to me and I find it odd that they vilified her for not being political enough (like trading on her whiteness and being an Aryan Princess even though she never espoused any kind of political leaning that way) and now she’s…
I have a lot of strong opinions about this video positive and negative but one thing I want to ESPECIALLY say that I loved about this video (outside of Tan France winking and walking with a teapot which was so perfect) is that there is really only one straight, white, cis white male in this whole thing - Ryan Reynolds…
First things first: this was the first dress I tried on, and this is the dress I chose. Only mine doesn’t have the little arm sleeves.
I don’t like the idea that anything a woman chooses is feminist. I shave my legs and armpits. This is 100% because of gendered societal expectations, it would never have occurred to me to do this in a world without the sexist ideas that women should be shaved. My choice to shave is not feminist. Its just not. i’m just…
Counterpoint: your fun, quirky wedding is not as fun and quirky as you think it is. Really, you’re just pissing off your guests.
Oh, this reminds me of one of my unpopular opinions:
People who buy old houses and then totally renovate the shit out of them, sucking all the character and “old” out of them are bad people. Just buy something beige if that’s what you wanted! Some of us LIKE mid-century or victorians and you’re going around BLAH’ing them off the planet.
My unpopular opinion is that I don’t like drag queens. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Specifically, men who are like a caricature of femininity. Relatedly, I do not like the use of the word fish for women.
Sooo....the picky eating thing. I totally understand where you are coming from. And with some people I know I wonder if their picky eating is related to their xenophobia, which makes me roll my eyes about it even more. Like, certain flavors or textures being associated with “ethnic” (I hate that term!) food and so…
Going on Birthright is condoning Zionism, genocide and colonialism, and our ancestors/ survivor relatives would be (or should be) ashamed of us/ it all; the promoters, those who go on it. It’s against everything we should stand for as jews and is just fucked up beyond belief.
Oh my GOD the food thing. I dated a guy and was friends with a (different) guy who were the pickiest eaters on the planet. I don’t know what their issues were (it wasn’t food allergies or sensory issues), but I wanted to smack them and be like “ACT LIKE A GROWN PERSON”.
I don’t even know where to start. I feel like I have so many but here’s just a few that I feel are very unpopular:
So I hate to say this, but I’m also the child of an alcoholic. Are you sure he really stopped, and isn’t just hiding his drinking?
More likely there were a bunch of skeptics who ordered it and while eating the real meat burgers, thinking they were the Impossible burger, they were saying, “Yuk! This is terrible! It tastes nothing like the real thing!”
She got us matching rings, and she proposed to me between a fairy garden and a moon garden. She couldn’t wait until Iceland.
