Thank you. I thought a similar thing watching the video, and I think that it's incredibly important, mainly because I'm tired of trans people being seen as helpless victims who have things done to them without being able to fight back. I think it's rather minimizing. That's not to say it doesn't happen to some, but at… » 5/30/14 1:01pm 5/30/14 1:01pm

EXACTLY. You taste it from a clean dining spoon, which is then dirty again. Period. If I wanted to eat food that might give me the flu, I'd go eat at the public-run hospital, not pay way too much for a chef that either doesn't know, or, more likely is too good for health codes. I don't care if he thinks they're shit.… » 3/05/14 1:22pm 3/05/14 1:22pm

There's got to be a fresher way of making women-centric movies than "Let's take movies starring men, which kind of star men for obvious reasons like a disgusting look at patriarchy itself." It just seems like by doing that you ignore the ways in which women lead their own lives and just think "hey, let's make women… » 3/03/14 1:55pm 3/03/14 1:55pm

I think this all comes from the one thing that needs most harshly to be critiqued: NYFW's idea of "beautiful." Of COURSE there are more white models. It doesn't have to do with their whiteness, or even their coloring. It has to do with their body type. Black women are typically more curvy, as are Latinas. Asian women… » 2/15/14 3:16pm 2/15/14 3:16pm

I'm always afraid of that. I think that "rape fantasies" are a growing trend because of how glamorized the movies make rape scenes. They need to stop, or, if anything, become horribly, graphically real, so that people stop thinking they're okay. Instead, they'll continue to pop up in movies like these just cuz. » 12/31/13 1:12am 12/31/13 1:12am

Concerning the dress-up toys, my childhood was not that far away (I'm in my twenties), and I fucking loved dressing up dolls. I also loved playing in mud. And reading. None of these were more or less "girly" and my parents didn't discourage any of them, or encourage one over the other. Now, a grown ass adult, I have… » 12/11/13 12:01pm 12/11/13 12:01pm

This. Just fucking this. It doesn't matter how many times I see it or hear it or anything. It still enrages me and terrifies me into a near panic attack when I see anti-semitism this strong and this vocal. Fuck her. I don't care if she gets help. I don't care if she lives. I don't care how wrong that is to say, either. » 12/09/13 10:19pm 12/09/13 10:19pm
