My girlfriend was making fun of gap’s “Dress Normal” campaign (a huge billboard in SF in particular) and it reminded me of this video I saw in college; it feels even more relevant now.  Man, fuck our entire western culture of willful ignorance.  The honesty in this billboard is unintentionally revealing like a freudian slip.

Okay and I’d be remiss not to mention the inherent and borrrrrring basic level of gender essentialism here.  Being masculine = being loud, anti-intellectual, and constantly endangering yourself.  Go! Be a big dumb bro with your gargantuan gonads go crash someone else’s car then set it on fire with your farts, jackasses of the world buy all of the things and rejoice together in your sacred bro culture!

Oh & football season is here, season of even more robo-women serving beer amidst fiery explosions of axe spray and bacony beard worshipping godaddy bullshit.

When asked whether he has gotten any offers to venture into Hollywood during his 20-year career, Jung Woo Sung replied, “Going abroad should not be an actor’s ultimate goal.”

He added, “Of course, filming foreign projects is up to the individual, and they will have a reason for doing so.” Then he frankly stated, “Hollywood is a white-dominated industry, so unfortunately the main character has to be white. But I want to be a main character.”

He further explained, “I’m not sure why Asian actors must make it their goal to enter Hollywood, if it means that they will end up playing villains and supporting characters.”

So many men have internalized the lie that they have uncontrollable sex drives, and no way to control their anger. They aren’t ashamed of their abusive behavior because they see it as a something natural to them and maybe even central to their masculinity. It’s scary as hell.

When New York Times columnist Charles Blow was 7 years old, he was sexually abused by his cousin.  The traumatic experience sent him on a path of self-questioning in hopes of understanding how it happened, why it happened, and what it meant. His new memoir, Fire Shut Up in My Bones, is a unwavering account of his abuse and how he healed. 

In the interview Blow discusses the correlation between victims of child sexual abuse and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender identity:

"What the data shows us indisputably is that people who will later identify as LGBT have disproportionate rates of having been victims of child sexual abuse. So there are two ways to think of that — one of which I completely disagree with and one I agree more with.

On the one end, the abuse is making these young people LGBT. The science for that is completely flimsy. I completely disagree with that idea. On the other side … children who will eventually identify as LGBT are more likely to be targets of sexual predators. If you think of it that way, it changes our concept of how we need to nurture and care for children who are different. …

If you look at it that way you realize that in some cases, not all of course, in some cases the predator is targeting children who they already see as kind of having some kind of characteristics that will later be different. And that difference means they’re isolated. That difference means that they are already outside of the social mores, that the predator behavior is now somehow justified because this person is already outside the norm.”

How Racism, Not Shonda Rhimes, Created The Angry Black Woman

It’s not the first time New York Times television critic Alessandra Stanley has come under fire for egregious fact-checking errors in major publications, but it’s certainly the most racist.

On Thursday, the New York Times published Stanley’s review of How To Get Away With Murder, with the lede “When Shonda Rhimes writes her autobiography, it should be called ‘How to Get Away With Being an Angry…
