an honest question

….where were all these feminist media outlets so concerned about Hugo Schwyzer’s mental health when Shulamith Firestone was dying alone in New York?

a very specific type of male reviewer who pastes their reviews (sometimes, very negative) in every possible crowdsourcing site.

And he seems to mostly review women writers

it’s like a form of marking

Dead Can Dance performing “Children Of The Sun” Live on KCRW

I don’t understand the people calling her bored. For one thing, musicians live aren’t always emoting and dancing around, especially if they’re focusing. She’s also wearing a pretty heavy dress. Maybe she’s just concentrating. And why are you all complaining because the woman isn’t expressive enough for you? She gets to behave how she wants.

“You have been a very foolish boy, wasting your time dreaming of impossible things when you speak of Mr. Pontellier setting me free! I am no longer one of Mr. Pontelliere’s possessions to dispose of or not. I give myself where I choose. If he were to say, ‘Here Robert, take her and be happy; she is yours,’ I should laugh at you both.”

― Kate Chopin, The Awakening

I like a new TV show! this never happens!

Thing I love about American Horror Story: if a man is a sexist prick to a woman, he INEVITABLY gets a nasty comeuppance. As soon as X made his crack about women and sandwiches, I was like, “Dude, you are going DOWN.” And I was SO RIGHT.
