    Time Magazine is irrelevant. Time Magazine has been irrelevant for a long time. Was it ever relevant? Time Magazine is old news for an old century. Their person of the year picks not only demonstrate gender bias, but also conservative values and out-of-date-fulness. Honestly I don’t care who their person of the year is. I’m [...]

I [...]

    Oh damn! When I read your headline I was actually excited for a moment. I thought it was some visionary new perspective via which we could collapse the patriarchal house of cards and move on to a more just and inclusive future. Turns out it’s just some chauvinism denier. Uggh.

  • Chelsea Manning is an American hero who should have won the Nobel Peace Prize, but in this bizarro Kafkaesque universe is instead sentenced to a longer prison term than even Nelson Mandela. The idea of Manning apologizing to a military command for telling the truth is upsetting beyond words. How murdering innocent civilians is not [...]
