It has been seeming kind of gross to me how many people just viewed this show as “connective tissue between phase 3 and Doctor Strange 2" or about how people were more interested in other characters who might show up than they were in Wanda or Vision, the two actual title characters.
It almost felt like because the Read more

I tried to stay spoiler-free and away from most of the speculation and I think it paid off for me. The fans who have whipped themselves into a frenzy because the final 10 minutes wasn’t a bunch of cameos for people whose names aren’t anywhere in the title of the show seem to be taking it pretty hard.

We wanted children, but were never successful. Over the years when people asked if we have children and I saidno”, it was so often followed by how children are one of life’s greatest joys, or “you should do it”. Now that I’m turning 40, I’m coming to the sobering realization that some people still don’t just stop at Read more

Doesn’t require justification. “I don’t wanna” is good enough.

I can’t even imagine how much my life would be profoundly fucked up by having a kid. I’m disabled, barely able to take care of myself. I forget things CONSTANTLY, often within moments. I suffered head trauma as a kid, I’m autistic, severe depression and anxiety, PTSD. I’m basically just a barely functional human Read more

I love every baby I have ever met and want to meet more. I also really worry about friends who are planning on having kids because it’s an opportunity to “really care about someone other than yourself.” Like, if you don’t do that pre-kid, I’m not sure you should be charge of raising a human. Also, makes me rethink the Read more

Always appropriate to remind people: Anyone who does not want to have children... and DOES NOT have children should be applauded. Read more

So it’s my responsibility to have a baby because I’m supposed to support other people in retirement even though I’m never going to get to have one?* I mean, I’m not one of those people who’s unwilling to pay taxes in to support the public good. I’m happy to pay a higher tax rate (obviously based on income with Read more

HAHA! True. But it was their one big attempt to go after the Disney market, so I guess they figured they’d go all out (even after watching the movie?? Actually the marketing probably came out long before it was finished).

Yes, to everything you say here, from Anastasia being the best of the Disney wannabes (part of that I think is they went the Disney route back with Menken and Ashman and hired one of the better then current Broadway teams for the songs—awful songs being a big problem with a lot of the wannabe Disney films) to how Read more

I feel like blaming the victim of racism instead of the people perpetrating racism isn’t worthy of the title of coolmanguy

Oh Laika... I have such a strange relationship with them. I like Coraline, I like ParaNorman (I didn’t care for it much initially, but in retrospect that had nothing to do with the film and everything to do with where I was in my personal beliefs), and I like Kubo, but The Boxtrolls was a slog, and Missing Link left Read more

I guess you didnt see the news recently about more PlayStation games getting released on PC going forward, huh? Sony finally realized MS has been moving the right direction all along.

It’s not just about the tools. It’s a PR stunt used to deflect anger at the fact that Joann and the lead developer are bigots. They are still profiting off this game regardless. Read more

You’re right, people believing differently than you doesn’t make them hateful. Too bad that’s not the argument I was making.

I don’t know if I’d say Hercules was worse than Cats Don’t Dance. I’m a huge fan of the songs in Hercules, though, and while Cats Don’t Dance has some good ones, I don’t think they measure up to the gospel inspired stuff nor the criminally underrated “I Won’t Say I’m In Love.” Read more
