I'm sorry, but your Scott Pilgrim vs. The World review makes me want to punch myself in the face... because punching myself would be less painful than trying to explain why the film is terrible to the people who think it's God's gift to cinema. Seriously, though, thank you for the review. I hated that movie the first time I saw it, but didn't have the proper context to explain why. Your review put into words all of my gut-hatred for the movie.

Yeah, few things are more frustrating than trying to explain the concept of systemic oppression to boys with an underdog complex. 

You’re welcome ;)

bi-privilege:

why do writers really avoid using the word bisexual to describe their characters? well, you may not have known this, but if a monosexual writes the word ‘bisexual’ three times, then the ghost of sappho will appear, seduce them, and then devour their soul. writers must stick with confusing euphemisms for bisexuality instead.

This explains so much.

Logic’s sound.

Glamour UK: What do you get riled up about in a feminist context?
Gillian Anderson: A lot. I have feminist bones and when I hear things or see people react to women in certain ways I have very little tolerance.
Glamour UK: But don't you feel sorry for modern men? Not knowing whether they should help us with our bags and open doors for us or whether we'll see it as an affront?
Gillian Anderson: No. I don't feel sorry for men.
