Nutshell: I. Am. Groot. A

Have you been loving the Guardians of the Galaxytrailers that show snippets of the film with groovy 70s rock? Well, then you’re gonna be blown out of your socks when you see the film. A fun-filled, self-aware, tongue-firmly-in-cheek explosion of special effects, smackdowns and fanboy shoutouts that definitely delivers. Scared the Powers That Be wouldn’t be able to bring…

Baltimore Screening Pass-palooza: The Hundred-Foot Journey

This looks adorable. And it’s got Helen Mirren in it, so it’s definitely worth a look. Plus free passes to The Hundred-Foot Journey, so why not, right?

Oh, here’s the synopsis:

In “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the…

Sexist Response to ‘Supernatural’ Nerd HQ question on Female Guest Stars Sums up Show’s Problems

iwriteaboutfeminism:

During Sunday’s Nerd HQ panel at Comic-Con with the cast of ‘Supernatural,’ an audience member asked if the dynamic on set changed for the male dominated cast on episodes with a female guest star. The responses she got from star Jared Padalecki and panel moderator Aisha Tyler perfectly, and…

I feel like you are totaling missing the point. Why do feminist have to look so deep into everything. Quit being offended by every little word that comes out of some ones mouth.
If they want their show to be about masculinity then so be it. Its art and art is to make the artist happy not you so get over it.
Take a fucking joke for once in your miserable little lives and move on. You’ll never be happy if you take everything so seriously.

It became apparent to me by the end of her rant that it had nothing to do with feminism (and shame on you for painting all feminists with the same brush) and everything to do with being mad that the writers won’t change a character’s sexual identity, never mind how detrimental that idea is to the gay community. What is it with women trying to force male couples, anyway? It was one thing when Willow realized she was a lesbian on Buffy because a) it was the writers’ creative decision, and b) they did so thoughtfully, with consideration for story telling and character development, and also the gay community. Sexual identity isn’t a choice and suggesting that writers change their characters’ sexual identities to service a fan’s personal desires is just wrong on multiple levels. 

Yes. Apparently she watches the show, but doesn’t *see* it, missing all the times the boys (and any other Hunter) has to choose between their lives & hunting. It’s a messed up life that they never would have chosen if they’d known then, yada yada. She’s also missing all the times the boys - but especially Dean - are taken down a peg or three when they’re being a little too “butch”. I could go on, but that’d be preaching to the choir. But then if she noticed all that, how could she feel all that glorious butthurt? *eyeroll*
