will-you-boy-how said: "We’re allowed to desire and not just be desired." This is so, so, so amazing. Such a perfect line. Thank you for bringing it into my life.

Thank you! But really, it’s honestly the reason why I keep writing so many things about hot guys (and girls). Sometimes it comes from a confessional place and sometimes not. It doesn’t matter. Women are taught that we are the ones to be lusted after. We are allowed to lust. We do lust. It’s okay. Let’s have nice, respectful fun with it.

Sometimes I write about feminism for Decider. Or I write about a topic that feminists have written about. That’s cool. I like that I get to write about feminism in entertainment in a thoughtful manner.

But today marked the second time in a month where I’ve…

And also, most of my pieces - especially “Dear Ryan Gosling” and “Crush of the Week” - were meant to be simultaneously tongue-in-cheek and were there to try to encourage women to own their weird desires. You like butts? Great. Let’s talk about it. We’re allowed to desire and not just be desired.

But it’s also like, “Ha! Remember a few years ago when people thought a website founded by three business women as a safe space for women to express themselves and be silly was a threat to feminism?” Oh, boy…those were the days…

Ugh.

But today marked the second time in a month where I’ve googled some feminist issue and stumbled upon an article that misquoted a piece I wrote back in the day for HelloGiggles or xoJane as a part of a really mean agenda.

I Just Spent The Day Watching/Reviewing Two New Amazon Pilots, ‘Red Oaks’ and ‘Hand of God’

You can read my Red Oaks recap here

Should you give it a try?

It’s not especially original, but it’s well-made and charming. Craig Roberts, the kid from Submarine, glues the whole thing together and you get to see Josh Meyers as an 1980s perv.

Then, I had to watch Hand of God. You can read my recap of that show here.

What did I think of that show?

You guys, I love bonkers TV. I love Hannibal. I’m not squicked out easily. 

THIS SHOW EMOTIONALLY DISGUSTED ME. The only redeeming character is a victim. The worst part? People are going to think this shit is dark and edgy and “good” because it deals with sex, politics and religion. It’s paint-by-number shock drama and people will fall for it.

So, Red Oaks? Sure. Hand of God? Burn it with fire.

But in the immortal words of Lavar Burton, “But don’t take my word for it…”

Disasterpiece Theater: Dune | Decider

Dune is so terrible and I love it so much, so I wrote about why you should watch it for Decider.

Cameron Carpenter - Organist believe this is real. I think. It’s hard to believe. But it appears to be real.

Not only is this real but I have to spend the next month of my life trying to promote him.

In total, my notes from the meeting where I found that out were “Why?” and “hair.”

Holy shit

Dope trailer for the new Christopher Guest movie…??

I am so happy this is real, but I also need to see someone on SNL create a character based on him.
