It's a commentary on how the poster thinks "men working" is gendered language and reflects the larger trend of inherent problems in professions like this where women are made to feel excluded or unwelcome.

It should be noted that the original tweet is from an actual social sciences professor working in the field of women and work so she's probably aware of all the research that actually shows language like that making women feel excluded from those professions. Calling out some random worker isn't going to make change, but all the people trying to dunk on her for caring about a sign are idiots too.

There's a mindset academics can fall into called "being up your own rear end" that causes them to lose perspective on everything that isn't specifically related to the field they study. Just because you're smart doesn't mean you're not an idiot.

That's what I mean. This is the field she studies. This kind of thing is well established in social studies and feminist academia. She just didn't apply it well.

if you read the stage notes for Macbeth you'll be amused to find that it calls specifically for "John's Goode wine" to be used in all meal scenes, label out

Not specifically in Shakespeare but you do see references like that in other literature and it only gets stronger heading into the Victorians. If I remember my Chaucer correctly he drops a couple favourite inns during the Canterbury Tales.

Again: all our literature really is just dime novels, itís just OLD dime novels so it feels more important.

I was trying to figure out what this lady was on about and... is she just making GBS threads on Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo for being successful? And then saying she's NOT doing that, she just doesn't think it's a thing she'd do (while implicitly saying they are worse for being that successful) and now people are being meeeean to her about it?

she's specifically going after them for selling product lines, merchandise, etc instead of just the media they made their names for. it's a valid complaint for Marie Kondo, because buying Marie Kondo branded poo poo makes absolutely no loving sense when you read the book which is all about not buying poo poo just for the purpose of having more poo poo.

I'm not surprised that the well-meaning career public servants in a commission like that are going slowly insane right now as they try to figure out how best to ensure the basic safety of an increasingly absurdly stupid and defiant American public. The CPSC is definitely the kind of place Trump would be attacking as part of the "deep state" because they care about safety and consumer rights, not business profits.

Hollowpoints are better for defensive use because they are less likely to exit the person you shoot and kill your neighbors. Cheap hollowpoints won't expand properly, so they'll act like FMJ and are more dangerous to neighbors/family members/bystanders in a defensive shooting.

Hornady also isn't especially pricey for defensive ammo, it's pretty middle of the road.

Yeah, so you'd have, like idk, an article about how awesome an almond milk brand was, because of their clever marketing. If you'd dare suggest in the comments:

"Almond farming is actually terrible for the environment, and you should consider alternate choices like oat milk; here's some actual factual sourcing on that" [link]

If it offended the authors/mods (or simply went against their pet brands/projects) it would show up as:

dreamin of semen posted:

Holy lmao I just went to look up the episode cos I thought it was the same episode as the one with The Internet (it's not, but it does feature The Internet in it) and this was on the IMDB trivia page


Been a while since I saw those movies but I'm not sure I recall any flat shots of trans women being punched through drywall while a laugh track plays


It also doesn't help that Matt Berry's character was probably the most absurd, insane weirdo on the show, so when he starts wailing on a woman there's a bit of like... expectation going into it that the character will do incredibly stupid, horrible things. Kinda like an Always Sunny character, except the writer is a giant shithead, instead of a decent person writing giant shitheads.

Put me in the camp of not realizing how hosed it actually was until a rewatch. I saw it when it came out, when I was about 16-17, and thought barely anything of it, but rewatching it at like 23, after starting HRT, it was loving stunning how messed up and uncomfortable the whole thing was.

It IS the one where Jen takes The Internet to a presentation and breaks it, the horror of which is only interrupted by Matt Berry punching April through the wall and into Jen's presentation. Which is honestly a lot of the reason why it SUCKS; the b-plot is so good, but you can't even separate it from that horrible transmisogynistic a-plot because they share a climax!

Yeah, as a (incredibly) bi woman in an almost four-year relationship with a (99%) straight dude, I assumed this too.

For content, is anybody interested in a quick write-up of some weirdo Taylor Swift fans on Tumblr that are convinced that she is secretly gay and married to her friend, model Karlie Kloss? Because there is a whole-rear end community of these weirdos and it's SOMETHING.

I was rooting for this to be at least partially true and then Kloss got married to a Kushner and turned out to be an incredibly privileged white bitch in like six months, which is super disappointing.

Read After Burning posted:

Oh, for sure! It's just...kind of blatant that it's not from any real political ideology, it's because he's "keeping them apart" or whatever.

I just checked since I hadn't looked into this drama since mid-March, and the "Kaylors" are now beefing with "Swiftgrons"...apparently another faction believes that Swift is secretly dating Diana Agron from Glee, who I believe is married to a man but came out as bi a while ago. Truly a sign of the human condition at large.

Reality TV show editing or not, there's definitely something weird going on there politically: https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywoo...th-the-kushners It was a minor meme at the beginning of this year, aka forever ago.

I literally just found this and was about to post it, good thing I refreshed. That's incredibly awkward, although hilarious. That contestant either made a completely innocent remark/joke without knowing it would set her off....or he knew EXACTLY what he was doing.

I'm curious, how DO chuds view the Kushner dad (the criminal one)? I don't see them mention him much. Is he cool because he did crimes and is the in-law of their Aryan princess (aka also a Republican)? Or do they hate him because he did crimes and had a Democrat son too?

Thatís the thing that gets me too. Karlie works in fashion, which is an incredibly left-wing, queer industry. Like marrying into Kushners and Trumps, shady business magnates is whatever. But having Ivanka and Jared as siblings in law when theyíre in the government working on policy to exile and kill the kinds of people you work with? Accept that youíre going to get a ton of criticism.

Turpitude II posted:

out of curiosity: how come?

Honestly, as a queer woman, it was just nice to think that two famous, mainstream popular reasonably-okay women were possibly in a relationship with each other. The thing to understand is that Taylor and Karlie very much were best best friends to the point where they'd have a bunch of stuff going on together that is genuinely what lesbians have traditionally done to hide being in an actual relationship (living in two apartments next to each other, spending months without seeing anyone else, so forth and so on), so it was really actually up in the air about the exact meaning of what was going on. Add on Taylor's rocky road with boyfriends and it was a reasonable thing to question internally as queer people do (this kind of speculation goes on all the time).

The issue with the absurd fanatic fangirls is the poo poo about calling their boyfriends/husbands prisoners of war, which I never got into. Like, who knows? Maybe they had a thing, broke it off, and went somewhere else. Maybe they are just really close friends platonically. It's not loving queerbaiting, because these are real people living their real lives, not scripted poo poo; and even if it's fun to hope for and fantasize about, your ideas don't mean those real people don't get to make their own decisions and have their own ideas.

And again, Karlie turned out to be a privileged white bitch in the end anyway, so gently caress that.

They said "racialized" instead of "racist" (or even just "racial") I guess.

Yeah that's kinda dumb but it's not nearly as dumb as a dude kneeling nude in a glamor shot.

Racialized is correct language, it's just very academic, coming from critical race theory. It means that the communities are becoming identifiable as belonging to people of race (ie, Black or people of colour), because of the surveillance, redlining, and other efforts that ghettoize them.
