Mad Men and opening presents
Mad Men showcased a very interesting cultural difference between american culture and (generally) asian culture and that is the art of opening gifts. I remember my first christmas in America and I was faced with the very difficult task of opening my presents in front of my mom, stepfather, and 2 stepsisters. I felt awkward. I was happy that they gave me a present but i felt rude opening the...

The Rejected: “He’s renting it” →
“Now, they both reap the rewards of their choices; Pete is rewarded with the business lunch, the big account, the accouterments of the successful life of a successful married man. Peggy is rewarded for choosing her independence by going out with an experimental group; being free to discover herself and work creatively. Both are dealing with a cost-benefit analysis of marriage and...

DISCRIMINATION AGAINST MOTHERS IS DISCRIMINATION... →
“It’s as if the public and private sector here endorses Senator Lindsey Graham’s unconscionable concept of “dropping a baby,” equating childbearing with a casual, willful intent to secure benefits.” This was totally how i was feeling every time they were talking about anchor and terror babies. It devalues the experience of parenthood and childbearing. It makes...

Old Spice Guy + FEMINIST HULK + Judith Butler
Old Spice Guy: "Hello, FEMINIST HULK. I observe that you are using lady-scented body wash."
Feminist Hulk: "HULK FIND LAVENDER FRAGRANCE RELAXING AFTER DAY OF SMASH."
Old Spice Guy: "Wouldn't you like to smell like me?"
Feminist Hulk: "HULK WOULD RATHER SMASH GENDER BINARY OF PERFORMATIVE SHOWERING."
Old Spice Guy: "Your tiny purple shorts hanging on the towel rack now hold tickets to the Sleater-Kinney reunion concert. And diamonds."
Feminist Hulk: "HULK ENJOY CORIN TUCKER'S REJECTION OF TRADITIONAL GENDER ROLES AND CONSUMERISM. BUT DIAMONDS MAKE HULK WANT TO SMASH HEGEMONY OF POST-COLONIAL OPPRESSION. ALSO, STILL PREFER TO SMELL LIKE FIELD OF FLOWERS."
Old Spice Guy: "You puzzle me, Feminist Hulk. Your wish to use lady-scented body wash, even whilst smelling the intoxicating scent of my Old Spice, is unparalleled in my experience. "
Judith Butler: "Feminist Hulk makes a good critique, Old Spice Man. Your discourse is being circumscribed by a learned sex/gender distinction. Please pass me the loofah."
Old Spice Guy: "Hello, Judith Butler. Allow me to scrub your back. So you and Feminist Hulk are saying that my devotion to Old Spice body wash might be part of a larger regulative discourse to maintain an essential ontological gender?"
Judith Butler: "That's correct, Old Spice Man."
Feminist Hulk: "HULK SMASH EPISTEMOLOGICAL FRAMEWORKS, WHILE SMELLING LIKE SPRING GARDEN."
Old Spice Guy: "I understand. Allow me to bake you a cake, Feminist Hulk and Judith Butler, while we discuss intersectionality and the beauty of giant green muscles."
Judith Butler: "Congratulations on making a break with compulsory heterosexuality, Old Spice Man."
Femist Hulk: "HULK IS VERY HAPPY TO SHARE TEARS OF JOY AND ORGANIC WHOLE WHEAT PASTRY FLOUR WITH OLD SPICE MAN AND JUDITH BUTLER."
Old Spice Guy: "I'm on a unicorn."
I'm so fucking sad. I want to sleep.
I need to stop reading the comment section of immigration articles! I’ve been crying for 5 minutes!
I am an Immigrant
I don’t plan to suck the life out of America I don’t plan on having my family come in “hoards” I don’t plan on being a deadbeat I don’t plan to rape your women and children I don’t plan on stealing your jobs (I’m smart so I probably deserve it) What would make you think that I would do all those things in the first place? I did not come to...
I can't handle hate
At the wake of the Prop 8 decision, one would think that I’d be full of glee right now. Alas, that is not the case. I was reading an article today about “anchor babies” and the comment section of the article was nothing but a hate forum for the conservative right. Why do so many people in this country hate immigrants? How different do you think our lives are that you see it fit...
