Does Pooh's whole body rotate yet his head sorta stays stationary in that gif or am I seeing it wrong? This is disturbing.

I must need more coffee.

Saria, about your post about "asking for it".

Some people you can't talk sense to. My RM/SO thinks that a woman plays a part in her attack. I've tried and tried to explain it to her.

She feels fine letting men off the hook.

I guess she forgets that my ex, who dressed like a boy like her, was raped. By a friend.

It's so sad, Minxy. I was caught so off-guard by hearing another woman say those words that it took me a moment to sort of compose myself.

Well, Sadie Kate, I'm sorry to see you in these pages again.

You brought the whole thing on yourself. I do feel sorry for you because I love you, but really, why don't you learn from experience? Scrills says that raccoons remember how to work live traps if they've ever been caught in one, so why can't a cute little dog learn her lesson?

You spent the morning in the crate of shame. I hope you're proud of yourself.

The introvert in me is very annoyed that you asked me for a ride somewhere, even though I barely know you.

I LIKE DRIVING BY MYSELF. Now I have to try to make awkward small talk with you.

I realize that we're going to the same place and I'll be talking to you once I'm there anyway, but it's the "trapped in the car" part that stresses me out.

Watching Drive, which I've found out was a book with a character named Irina, a Mexican woman. Irina became Irene, a blond white woman in movie. Good work, Hollywood!

Had to give in and have a toasted cheese. Had to. It kept me from going crazy while lunching with the oddparents.

Apparently whatshername waltzed into the producer's office and said she wanted the role, and such is the power of blonds that she got it.

The reasoning was that she seemed the type needs to be protected.
It's like that post I shared about black women (and women of color) never being described with adjectives like "fragile", or "dainty", or "elegant".

I don't particularly care for Junot Diaz, but this is good:
http://www.theatlantic.com/entertain...t-book/262169/


Quote:
Still, [Junot] Diaz admits that writing in a woman’s voice comes with certain risks. “The one thing about being a dude and writing from a female perspective is that the baseline is, you suck,” he told me. “The baseline is it takes so long for you to work those atrophied muscles—for you to get on parity with what women’s representations of men are. For me, I always want to do better. I wish I had another 10 years to work those muscles so that I can write better women characters. I wring my hands because I know that as a dude, my privilege, my long-term deficiencies work against me in writing women, no matter how hard I try and how talented I am.”

For one of the most lauded writers of his generation to say he needs another decade of practice to write better women is no small thing. But Diaz told me that he’s often appalled by the portrayals of women in celebrated novels.

“I know from my long experience of reading,” he said, “that the women characters that dudes [write] make no ****ing sense for the most part. Not only do they make no sense, they’re introduced just for sexual function.”

He gave a high-profile example, though he wouldn’t name names.

“There’s a book that came out recently from a writer I admire enormously. A woman character gets introduced. I said, ‘I promise you, this girl is just here to throw herself at the dude, even though the dude has done nothing, nothing, to merit or warrant a woman throwing herself at him.’ And lo and behold. This brilliant young American writer, that everybody sort of considers the god of American writing, turns around and does exactly that. When I asked my female friends, we all had a little gathering, and I was chatting. I was like, ‘Have you heard of a woman doing this?’ They’re like, ‘Are you ****ing nuts?’”

On the other hand, Diaz said, “I think the average woman writes men just exceptionally well.” He cited Anne Enright, Maile Meloy, and Jesmyn Ward as examples of younger writers who write great male characters—and pointed to two of his idols, Jamaica Kincaid and Toni Morrison, as timeless masters. But he also detects an across-the-board improvement even in woman-penned books that are less than high-brow, especially in Young Adult fiction. “Look how well the boys are rendered in The Hunger Games,” he said.

I am wearing this dress to a wedding on Sunday:



It was my go-to dress for opening nights but I haven't worn it in over three years, so it's like wearing a new dress. I love this dress. I'm excited.

I'm not a fan of his writing but I've loved Diaz in every interview I've read. It would suck if it turns out he's just a really good actor and doesn't mean any of it.

I think he would have slipped up by now. I wish he wrote characters that weren't groan-inducing for me.
I wonder what author he's talking about. Heh.
