    There is a perception (albeit obviously a self-fulfilling one) in Hollywood studios that films starring African American protagonists do not perform well overseas. Usually this is a factor in limiting the budgets of films starring black actors, as the execs have less expectation of international box office success. This poster, perhaps is one marketing team’s [...]

  • Quick note: in the section, “You guys, not only did you unlock the ire of beautiful women of color with your cover, you also sanitized history. Baum notes, and rightly so, that this imagery “is akin to putting a picture of a Gentile in a stereotypical Jewish getup on the cover of Adolf Hitler’s Mein [...]

  • Guybrush Threepwood commented on the blog post The Wednesday Weigh-In: Reddit rape thread edition   2 years, 1 month ago · View

    I have just been reading the “Top 200″ or whatever you call it on Reddit, so I’m probably reading a heavily edited version of the thread, but… I have to agree that this is a good conversation to have, and while framing it around the rapists in a way that asks them to self-select and [...]

  • Guybrush Threepwood commented on the blog post Marissa Mayer doesn’t particularly care for feminism   2 years, 2 months ago · View

    I would like to offer kind of a defense, as someone close to a couple of women who’ve been working in Silicon Valley for decades, and also someone who watched this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dyvd9fyXpDM In that video, which is really long, Meyer talks about a lot of things that, frankly, we’d want any feminist CEO (albeit this [...]

    So glad I’m not the only one. That article was… ugh. I dislike it being listed as “an important piece” rather than heavily caveated. Admittedly I’m someone who thinks it’s really really hard to write anything about male rape victims without it turning into What About Teh Menz!!!, so I am a harsh critic when [...]

  • Guybrush Threepwood commented on the blog post Update: FBI changes official definition of rape   2 years, 11 months ago · View

    I’m not as well-versed in rape laws as I should be considering I was involved in a Clothesline project, but from what I learned then, my guess is that this brings the FBI’s rape definition (ie the legal definition for the crime that people can get prosecuted for (in theory) in a court) in line [...]

  • I just walked in SlutWalk LA, and I totally agree that there is more to these protests than just a controversial name. The one in LA (in West Hollywood specifically) was a rally followed by a protest followed by a crazy dance party followed by hamburgers. And yes people dressed down, but it was only [...]
