we’re already expected to do a metric fucktonne of weird shit to please straight guys, why would I add “rimming” to that list?

Variety?

Why do straight women describe so many heterosexual acts so dismissively? Like, I’m not into most of those sex acts but I don’t act as horrified by them as women who actually get near a penis on purpose.

lbr original series vulcan/romulan concepts were based on orientalist ideas about asian stoicism/militaristic aggression and arrogance and included some yellowface makeup, so let’s not even PRETEND please.

Yes, we all knew this, we’re intimately…

Miles O'Blackface

That’s Deep Space Nine, and the Klingon there next to Worf (Michael Dorn, actually black) is Miles O’Brien, (Colm Meany, not black in the show or real life) darkened.

Star Trek is a case that lacks a clear improvement over time, but a bunch of changes, many of which are arguably more racist and terrible than what went before.

The films introduced blackface, we like to think of Michael Dorn as the original ridge type Klingon, but it was Christopher Lloyd in brown makeup, although other Star Trek movies had orange Klingons, or Klingons who had the skin color of the actor playing them. In the original series, many minor Klingons had bad orange fake tans, but the three major Klingons were the actual color of the actors, Kang was played by Syrian-American actor Michael Ansara, while Koloth was actually paler than Kirk, and other minor Klingons were white without fake tans also.


Whether to call dark face paint blackface, let me ask you this: is the intention of the coloration to portray the characters as other, savage, violent? Does adding SciFi ridges make it not blackface? What does it mean when you have to paint yourself brown, grunt and headbutt people to portray an alien “race?”

Most Klingons looked like Michael Dorn in skin color, but the actors portraying them did not. Even Worf’s son was a white boy painted brown.

There was some variety in Klingon skin tone, but throughout modern and occasionally progressive Star Trek shows, actors were made up darker in order to portray the war obsessed, violent Klingons

It wasn’t until Enterprise that we returned to the idea that Klingons possess all skin tones, and the actor playing them were the same color as themselves. But more importantly, Enterprise spelled out something suggested in some episodes of previous media, that the bloodthirsty, death fixated warrior culture was a perversion of their actual culture, that those who had concerns outside of war were oppressed. For the first time, the stupid, angry and grandiose behavior of Klingons was presented as political rather than racially inherent.

hey i know i have a fraught and passive-aggressive relationship with time magazine but please take like a minute out of your day to vote for laverne  cox to be in this year’s time 100 list of the 100 most influential people in the world this year

I hope time gives a full breakdown of which of these questions was closest or most voted on. Why would so many people be certain that Key and Peel or Cicily Strong aren’t important?
The higher number of votes indicates it isn’t just time readers voting no on people they haven’t heard of, but internet vote wars.

Finland’s postal service celebrate Tom of Finalnd with Touko Laaksonen stamps. And I celebrate Finland’s postal service with joyful panic screams!

All this time and I never thought it through that Tom of Finland was literally from Finland

The most circular puzzle is trying to decide if American Psycho is satire or criticism or just a jubilant collection of fantastic misogyny, violence and eighties businessman manliness.
Of absolutely no help to deciding on an analysis of the book/movie is the recent fact that writer Bret Easton Ellis considers Fifty Shades of Gray to be the most important novel of its decade, yes, the fan fiction of the Twilight movie, that Fifty Shades. (Lots of fan fic is mostly original story, but Fifty Shades follows the events and characters in the films very closely and directly, criticisms of either are identical if you replace sparkles with kegel balls) BEE even threw fits over casting rumors for the film adaptation, and his recent screenplay The Canyons is fairly obvious fan fiction for Fifty Shades, besides the similar premise and character descriptions, the male lead’s name is even the same: Christian.
All of the walls are crumbling in my mind. Shock pop novelists are fighting over Stephanie Meyer’s thrice chewed leftovers and apparently care deeply about the right portrayal of her ideas.

Hannibal is popping interesting side characters like they are Pringles, particularly ones that are alive in Silence of the Lambs.
This is to convince us that they really might kill Jack Crawford, and I am not buying it, because how much show do you really have without Jack?
Jack endangering his agents unnecessarily by leaving them in the dark is the whole show, and he really needs to live to contemplate that for best effect.
ANYHOW,
Top ways Jack Figures It Out
1. One cannibal pun too many
2. Nothing in particular, just thinking stuff over
3. Chilton had his gall bladder dramatically carved out of him! Remember that??? Even a little cannibalism would have sent him to the hospital. Think it through!
4. That stray bullet hole, which Hannibal would have looked for and patched, but if you have one new floorboard just under one repaired ceiling tile, kinda tells the same story, don’t it?
