I'm not necessarily defending this strategy, but your comment got me thinking. Cosby is not going to go bankrupt. A boycott of his show (or other books/videos/whatever) won't hurt him in the least, because he is so goddamn rich. But, if you buy a ticket and make a scene, you are essentially buying a chance to have the… » 3/30/15 2:28pm Monday 2:28pm

Isn't "belief in the implicit supremacy of man-on-man sex" just another way to say sexual identification? If I think man-on-man sex is the greatest, I'm probably a gay man. If I think man/woman is supreme, I'm most likely straight, etc. Everyone is allowed to toot our own horn in this department, I think. Explore and… » 3/03/15 1:15pm 3/03/15 1:15pm

For those wondering what Pharrell said: basically that we should be talking more about the alleged robbery Brown committed beforehand, and that Brown shouldn't have walked down the middle of the street. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2... » 2/08/15 11:54pm 2/08/15 11:54pm

The link between birth weight and adult weight or amount of weight gained in pregnancy is tenuous at best. Petite women give birth to 10+ pound babies all the time. Overweight women regularly have babies that are 6-7 pounds and perfectly healthy. Babies are not adults. A 14 pound newborn is not automatically unhealthy. » 2/07/15 3:38pm 2/07/15 3:38pm

O'Reilly seems to focus on Colbert not being able to compete with the Jimmys because Colbert's humor (as evidenced on the Report) is too liberal. I think Colbert will tone the political commentary down somewhat, but I also think the reason they chose Colbert is that they hoped he would bring his younger audience with… » 1/27/15 12:12pm 1/27/15 12:12pm

Unless you say this about every time a story about a white heterosexual man is played by a white hetereosexual male actor, your heterosexism and racism is showing.

No one likes being labeled as a racist. No one likes criticism, period.

I am a white ally. I try to listen more than talk. I try to talk when I notice none of my white friends are talking. I try to acknowledge that, to quote LeVar Burton, they shouldn't just take my word for it - they should pay attention to the black… » 12/18/14 2:19pm 12/18/14 2:19pm

While blatant, violent racism still exists, it is far less prevalent today, but subtle racism has not changed much over the decades. Distrust of black people is a major part of modern racism. As Cox points out, we have implicit, unconscious biases that manifest in a myriad of ways. Studies have shown that these more… » 12/18/14 1:11pm 12/18/14 1:11pm

TV fathers letting us down left and right. It might be a stretch, but there is something about holding the ultimate patriarchal position in pop culture while at the same time abusing all the privilege that comes with it while in private that makes Cosby's and Collins's actions all the more disgusting. It is the gender… » 12/17/14 3:23pm 12/17/14 3:23pm

I can take Allison Williams. What I cannot stomach are all the horrid Melissa Joan Hart Walmart commercials. You've sold your soul, Clarissa. » 12/04/14 8:28pm 12/04/14 8:28pm

Victims are rarely perfect people, like the rest of us. However, their flaws do not justify the violence perpetrated against them. In this case, "progressives" (a.k.a., empathetic people) know that Mike Brown's theft does not mean he deserved to be shot down, just like Cosby's victims, even though they waited a long… » 11/26/14 12:58pm 11/26/14 12:58pm

Darren Wilson

Fuck you. Fuck your feelings. Fuck your "career." Fuck all the people who are expressing concern for you. Fuck your ability to get married. Fuck the small, small number of witnesses who corroborated your story. Fuck your smug face. Fuck your "bruises." Fuck your "victimhood." Fuck you. » 11/25/14 1:54pm 11/25/14 1:54pm

Looks like they dipped generously from the well that is Downton Abbey to fill out the cast! Lady Rose as Cinderella, and it looks like Daisy the cook is one of the wicked step-sisters. » 11/19/14 1:06pm 11/19/14 1:06pm
