Backseat Critique: The Amazing Spider-Man 2
It’s another helping of carboob closeups as Hagan, Robyn and Sarah report back from their daytime viewing of the second part in the unfolding tale of the allegedly Amazing Spider-Man! What did they think about this Sony feature? Did this ambitious monster mash of marvel miscreants work, or was it the Hypno Hustler of this summer’s superhero lineup?
Find out more about this, the GB movie ratings system, overlapping movie premises, visions of Dennis Leary, the Blue Danube in dubstep, Stuatu The Watcher, CG failures, turbo-charged diseases, the most understaffed industrial complex ever, awkward mood swings and much more!
Also: Robyn’s Crime of the week with advice for mech-based city invasions and the rise of Fellatio Hardy!
i think it’s a universal truth that everyone in our generation takes pluto’s losing its planetary status as a personal offense
pluto is smaller than russia. why did we ever even consider it a planet?
BECAUSE IT’S A PART OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM
OHANA MEANS FAMILY
OHANA MEANS NO ONE IS LEFT BEHIND
Personally I just accepted the change. I’m not a major science buff, but the reasoning that there are several same sized objects orbiting at a similar trajecctory around the sun was enough reasonging to either declassify Pluto as a planet or classify the rest as planets, and since it was so messy that far out, classifying them all as dwarf planets sounded like the best option.
Experts have repeatedly debunked the myth that transgender non-discrimination laws give sexual predators access to women’s restrooms, but that hasn’t stopped conservative media outlets from promoting fake news stories to fear monger about trans-inclusive bathrooms.
For as long as the transgender community has fought for protection from discrimination in public spaces, conservatives have peddled the myth that sexual predators will exploit non-discrimination laws to sneak into women’s restrooms.
That fear has been an extremely effective tool for scaring people into voting against even basic protections for transgender people, which is why conservatives routinely use the phrase “bathroom bill" to describe laws prohibiting discrimination in public accommodations. When conservative media outlets attack non-discrimination laws for transgender people, they almost exclusively focus on bathroom and locker room facilities.But that fear is baseless - completely unsupported by years of evidence from states that already have non-discrimination laws on the books. In a newMedia Matters report, experts from twelve states - including law enforcement officials, state human rights workers, and sexual assault victims advocates - debunk the myth that non-discrimination laws have any relation to incidents of sexual assault or harassment in public restrooms
Gladstone and Stephen Colbert know who Jonathan Swift is, but not everyone else has caught up.
#3. Stephen Colbert Gets Attacked by a Hashtag Activist Who’s Wrong About Everything
In [an interview, Suey Park] describes how she “saw the hashtag as a way to critique white liberals who use forms of racial humor to mock more blatant forms of racism.” I read the interview several times, reading all the poorly chosen, unconvincing words. And maybe I’m wrong, but, quite simply, despite the loads of verbiage, I’m pretty sure Park simply feels that there are certain no-no words, bad words that can never be used to prove any point or be justified by any context.
I reject that out of hand, as should anyone with an active mind. Park’s lack of faith is not with Colbert, of whom she claims to be a fan, but the rest of society. She does not believe people can hear uncomfortable or provocative jokes in any context that would justify their use without adding fuel to the fire of racism.
…..fuck you, Gladstone.
This article is HELLA long, but I address the following things:
- DC’s persistent use of the Women in Refrigerators trope even in marketing.
- Revisiting the threats of rape and violence aimed at Janelle…
hey guys!! so as you all know, me and my boyfriend shannon have been together for over two years now. he’s an amazing man and works really hard to achieve the things he wants in life. lately things have been very rough for him. after recently coming out as trans*, he’s been battling daily with extreme dysphoria and other body-image related issues, and it only adds onto to his struggle with depression and anxiety. shannon wants top surgery, (a mastectomy) which is the surgical removal of the breasts. but money is an issue for him and his mother, because they can’t even afford groceries at his house. so he’s been binding his chest for 6-8 months to make his breasts less noticeable but it actually makes him more dysphoric because its just a reminder of what he has to put his body through just to look passable. if you didnt already know, binding can cause serious health risks, including lung problems, back problems, decreased blood flow to the heart, blood clots, bruising, and even broken ribs. i care so much for him and his health and mental well-being, so it would mean the literal world if you could donate to his top surgery fund. any amount would mean so much to us. we really need your help and we really appreciate any you could give. thank you so much guys. and even if you can’t donate, reblogging this as a signal boost to spread the word would be amazing. here is the link to my blog, please click the donate button. any amount you could give would help so much.
Religious Anti-Ninja Turtle Propaganda from the Ancient World
As it turns out, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are components of an evangelistic gospel of “outright Hinduism, occultism and humanism” that teaches children “ideals that are contrary to Christian beliefs” with subversive merchandise like “pepperoni sticks.” At least, that’s according to a group of curiously coiffed Canadian men in an early 1990s propaganda film decrying the original TMNT animated series, Vanilla Ice, Bart Simpson and other alleged evils of the ancient world.
They were pretty spot-on about Vanilla Ice, though.
To all my followers who celebrate it, have a wonderful and blessed Easter.
If you don’t celebrate it, and/or are being forced to spend it with family members you don’t get along with, my heart goes out to you. I hope you can enjoy the day, even for a brief moment.
Because there’s no male figure in the home is deeply misogynist and sexist
