Love & Friendship
Well, I realize that today’s celebrity crush is especially unconventional, but you know what?
What more could you want from a celebrity crush?
Friendship Quote Maya Angelou
So guys, who watched the Oscars? I know that I promised to spend more time learning about feminism and less time worrying about pop culture feminism, but damn. I wrote an entire post about my feelings on Seth MacFarlane before I realized that the internet really does not need another opinion on him and deleted it. There are people out there who said what I want to say in a far better, more eloquent manner (see: many of these links). What I will say, quickly, is that there is real value in examining a joke from someone else’s point of view. If you are a man, consider how you would feel about something as a woman. If you’re white, think of how that joke might seem to a person of color. There is never, ever any harm in opening your mind to other people’s experiences. This week I’ve been disappointed to see a lot of people I respect(ed) on the internet steadfastly refusing to even entertain another persons’s opinion.
