This scene was actually when I went from feeling more or less neutral on Joan to actively disliking her.

Because wow, that was patronizing.

I loved that scene in Elementary.

1) Firstly, because it immediately deconstructs the “hero throws and breaks something in frustration” cliche (Sherlock throwing a glass slide in HoB, anyone?) it might even be seen as a parody of that cliche.

2) Secondly, because the dynamic is different between a man and a woman than it would be between two women or two men, the visual of a man smashing something in a temper in front of a woman can be taken as threatening or borderline abusive. Joan Watson immediately shows that she is not intimidated by Holmes’ behavior.

3) Lastly? One of the running themes of Elementary is the deconstruction of Sherlock Holmes as the solitary, antisocial genius, and his becoming a member of a community. Holmes’ gifts are given their due respect, but no one in Elementary plays the game of Because Sherlock Holmes is a Bloody Genius He Can Do Whatever He Wants So There. When Sherlock goes after Moriarty (“M”), Captain Gregson suspends him. When Sherlock doesn’t want to talk about his addiction, Alfredo says “You’ve got to get over yourself.” And when Sherlock behaves like a spoiled child, Joan tells him “Use your words.”

You see Joan patronizing Sherlock. I see a member of Sherlock’s community teaching him how to behave like an adult member of that community.

The first five minutes of How to Train Your Dragon 2!

Not too spoilery, if you have already seen the first and second trailers. The one really new stuff is the dragon races that was also glimpsed in the trailers too. It is an edited down version.

Let me tell you something about today. Today was the hottest day of the year in New Jersey, I woke up sweating despite air conditioning because it was 95 degrees. Now, i did what any logical person would do and I put on my favorite pair of shorts so i wouldn’t be sweating throughout the day.

        Even in my shorts i was sweating my balls off but I went through half of my day as normal, no boys stared at my ass or tried to grope me in public yet when i went to the the cafeteria a teacher told me to go to the office because he finds my shorts inappropriate. I head down to the office to find a group of girls wearing shorts and skirts sitting in a small room in the office, we where all ordered to call our parents or to change into the clothes they had offered us from the school store. These items of clothing included sweatpants and a large heavy sweatshirt. I obviously refused to where those because it was 95 degrees and when you are sweating the key to cool down is NOT to put on more clothes. They told me I would have to stay in that room the whole day if it came down to it.

      I was able to leave the office when my friend gave me a pair of yoga pants. The man who made me go down to the office brought down several other girls as I was leaving, at this point they didn’t care how long the shorts where they just sent everyone who was wearing a pair down. They warned me that if I put my shorts back on they would right me up. 

     I put them back on anyway because just walking down the hallway in those yoga pants made me faint, dizzy,and extremely hot. Thats the main issue, it is hot enough for people to pass out in school but to the school system they would rather a girl suffer from a heat stroke then to have a boy become  turned on. My shorts don’t say “COme fuck me in the middle of class” they say,”Its warm out”

The sexualizing of innocent students is not okay

Risking students health is not okay

and tHE LACK OF FEMINISM IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM WILL NEVER BE OKAY

Today was literally horrible

I hate our school so much

I can’t reblog this enough omg

God, this reminds me of my school - I was so terrified to wear shorts because my sister got in trouble for wearing shorts. The rule was 3 inches above the knee. She wasn’t wearing booty shorts. She was wearing basketball shorts, and they go to just above her knees. She fucking SAT DOWN and the shorts rode up A LITTLE.

And what did the teacher do? Before class, he apparently walked to every girl in shorts and measured their shorts. My sister’s shorts measured AN INCH above her knees, and she got sent down. My dad had to take time off work (which was an hour away from our house) just to give her “appropriate” pants, even when everyone could clearly see that her shorts came down to her knees when she stood up.

Yeah, NASIR’S balls are bigger!
(via) thegodsfavorme:

lol he’s like ‘down boy. we both know who’s balls are bigger’ 


I’m going to go into analysis mode - but look at Nasir. He’s intent on beating the shit out of Lugo. His eyes are like a predator. “I see you, you insult me, and I’m gonna rip you apart”. 
But then bam! Agron touches his face, and Nasir VISIBLY jumps. His attention is redirected. He focuses on Agron. His face, from what I can see, softens. He’s our adorable lovable Nasir again.
It isn’t just Nasir that checks Agron’s temper. (Remember that scene, where Agron draws his blade against Gannicus, and Nasir just says ONE WORD, and he gives his sword to Spartacus?). Agron also checks Nasir’s temper. They’re sort of alike in that way, I guess. 
And also, I love how Agron keeps his eyes on Nasir while Nasir’s in prowling mode. He’s ready to jump in, and when Nasir moves to the side, where Agron isn’t blocking him from Lugo, that’s when Agron jumps in. Agron’s like “No, baby. I know you see prey, but he’s our friend. We need him.” Even better, Agron breaks Nasir’s gaze by re-stepping between him and Lugo
Ahhhhh….Nagron feels.

So CNN just showed a report on the royal visit to New Zealand, which not only actively mocked the cultural traditions of the Maori, comparing the haka to the mating dance of the emu, but also denigrated the cultural traditions of many other groups as being ‘native’ and generally silly. It’s this kind of shoddy journalism and blatant racism that perpetuates an idea of multiculturalism being some kind of childish joke and trivialises the identity of 15% of NZ’s population. If you want to do something about it, there is a complaint here, and the petition associated with it here.  .

SIGNAL BOOST

CNN (and Jeanne Moos, the reporter)…just…really. We’re talking about different cultures! Be respectful, or don’t report anything at all.

CW Doesn’t Want Your “Husbands”… But Will Pick Up “Backpackers”
Last year The CW launched an online distribution platform called CW Seed. As the name implies, this online-only channel was intended to operate as a seeder pipeline. Web series could be produced relatively inexpensively and popular shows with proven concepts could be drafted up to the majors by landing a spot on The CW itself.
CW kicked off their online channel with four projects. One of of those was Husbands, created by Brad Bell and Jane Espenson, a show we’ve written a lot about here at TheBacklot. Another web series was called Backpackers.

So… setting aside Husbands, their actually most popular option, for a show about two straight guys travelling the world looking to get laid, because the latter has a “broader-based appeal”. That’s just great.

I actually like Husbands. Backpackers just doesn’t appeal to me, especially with their main poster (I’m guessing) being two guys and a woman’s ass cheeks in between them. The dude with the glasses is just creepy.

Spartacus Season 3…

To tell you guys the truth, watching this season was difficult. It wasn’t that I knew the characters would die (minus Nagron! :3). My discomfort comes mainly from the episodes where the rebels are in Sinuessa.

Season 2, we hear/see how the Romans treat their slaves. Crucifixion, rape, objectification. There’s sort of a clear line between who’s a Roman and who’s a rebel. Yet in Season 3, this line’s muddled.

Example: Rebels overtake Sinuessa. Most immediately take to torturing/dehumanizing Romans. Justified? Yes, in a way - they’ve been treated like that, so why not reciprocate?

Yet, there’s the “you’ve become what you’re fighting against.” Crixus and Naevia took pleasure in having two Romans fight, with swords, over food. Nemetes raped and tortured Fabia, even offering her to Caesar. How are they no different than the Romans?

And then my feelings get even more twisted. I couldn’t stomach watching Crixus and the others torture Roman citizens, but when Spartacus hosted the games with Roman soldiers, I was all for it. It could be that I’m emotionally invested in Nasir, who believes he’s lost Agron. It could be that Tiberius was among those doomed to die in the games. Or it could be that instead of Roman citizens, Spartacus and the rebels fought against Roman soldiers, men used to fighting with sword and shield.

Why does this set up for April 2014 Bello magazine seem so familiar?? 

Oh that’s right, I know why: 

oh and

Thanks media. 

Ya’ll can put a tanned white girl on the cover in color, but g-d forbid someone with some melanin isn’t in black and white. whatever. 

So tired of this so called “artistic shit” they so afraid of brown and black people upsetting they precious white customers. They probably do black and white because they overexpose black people  all the time. Trying to act like it don’t matter when it comes to black people and photography.
