I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking.

Warning. Contents under pressure.

Rucka says, “Fuck you, you pernicious, sexist, exclusionary fuckwits” and he’s right.

After reading about and understanding the issue people have with the most recent episode of Game of Thrones, I thought I would make a simple flow chart for creators.  Use it yourself; I imagine it’ll be helpful.

I’m sure I remember Jaime raping or partly raping Cersei in the books, though. I haven’t seen that episode yet but still.

Hmm.  I think I should consult a flow chart to see if that’s a good idea.

(My wife informs me that this was not the case in the books.)

Yes, of course it lowered my opinion of the character- but Cersei was praying in the sept, and Jaime came in, and I remember that she tried to stop him but he did it anyway, I think she started enjoying it part way through. And then it turned out she was on her period.

Huh.  You know, if that reading of the scene is correct, maybe it was a good thing to have in the books!  Let’s take a look at a flow chart.


man that flowchart sure is handy

I wish Nick Dear had this flow chart when he was writing the National Theater version of Frankenstein. I went with a big group because Cumberface and we got sort of blindsided. I probably lost some friends for it.

Meanwhile: Child murder? Go for it.

kristiosketches asked: Random Easter related question for you: Is there any significance to Jesus specifically falling three times during the Stations of the Cross? As a kid it always seemed odd to me that his falls are specifically noted and numbered. Is this just so we feel sympathy for him? Meant to humanize him just prior to the crucifixion? Or is there meant to be a deeper meaning behind the three falls (Somehow referencing the Holy Trinity?)

itswalky:

I have no idea what that is.  Is that a Catholic thing?  

Yes, it’s a catholic thing. And yes, the “three falls” are symbolic because catholics attach Trinity significance to every single thing that could possibly be put into a group of 3.

When I say people want to see more diversity in stories, no, I really don’t mean different stories about straight white dudes. I really, really don’t mean that at all. This isn’t about types of stories being told. This is specifically about people. I’m not letting you make this about something else. You are not hijacking this message to make sure we’re still talking about straight white dudes.

The saga continues:

This made me actually sputter with frustration. Saliva exited my mouth. Why do you think your opinion SHOULD matter on this subject? Why should your opinion be given the same weight over people who are actually living these experiences? Especially when my original point was about how minorities rarely get to tell their own stories. I’ve been really patient with him but he’s taken up way too much of my time and he’s still missing the point like he’s trying to actively avoid it.

I JUST WANT TO SMOOSH HIS FACE

I always wonder why some people have such a hard time understanding that it’s possible for them to take part in a conversation without needing to make the conversation about themselves. 

It really doesn’t seem all that difficult. I, as a straight white cis middle-class male, don’t really feel much of a need to make every conversation about underrepresented groups and voices “expanded” so that straight white cis middle-class males are also being talked about. I’ve got no problem being part of, or even just observing without needing to interject, a conversation about the need for a wider inclusiveness in various medias without constantly asserting that straight white cis middle-class males definitely need to be included too, yada yada yada. I’ve never felt the need to pretend to be a part of an underrepresented group in order to listen to the needs, concerns, or voice of an underrepresented group. 

Seriously, I don’t get it. Why is that so difficult for some people?

Other John Green temporarily loses an arm and exposes his femur (?)! His worried husband, Bald John, rushes to his side.

A classic moment in Wimbly Wombly history as AFC Wimbledon take on Swindon Town.

Is that a femur? Only the scientists of the future know for sure.

It’s a humerus, people.

Yes, it must be, because I do find it be funny.
