I’m only watching this season because of the first Black Bachelorette, but I need someone to discuss it with. For starters, do you think Rachel feels pressure to choose a certain race of man? I don’t remember the cast breakdown from the very first episode, but in light of the whole Lee drama, I’m disappointed about…
Hello Clashers! Long time no post!
Ok, so I do care about all of you but I totally need to do some shameless self-promotion and say that I can officially apply for M.F.A. and start in December!!! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Hello houseguests did you miss me? I took a five month break from Kinja but it’s that time again and somebody has to remind y’all. It’s almost time for Big Brother in fact they are doing the cast reveal on Monday on the feeds so get your free week now if you want to see who we are watching this summer. Let’s hope…
Who’s idea was it to have ads as big as Trump’s ego? I can maybe deal with them if they were just images, but nope, they’re videos as well. And sure, Swedish Fish are pretty damn great, but still. It looks like they found a way to get them past ABP, too. I’m keeping it on because I don’t like them slowing down…
My other present irritant is ending sentences with “...my dude.”
I have never seen or heard someone who can speak so well about the experience of being fat. Her writing at Jez, her appearances on This American Life, her book, when she writes for the guardian, this interview, EVERYTHING. She just gets me. Everything. Jesus christ she’s good.
I can’t be the only person that hates these fucking posts, right?
Want to make sure this is as widely seen as possible. If you have Senators to call, please do.
This might be an unpopular opinion, but stereotypes are often based on a grain of truth. There are a lot of black people where, if you poison their children, they won’t think it’s fair to tell them they have to pay for the poison. Oh wait, not just black people, people in general are like that. Well, whatever.
I don’t know if I’m more crotchety and sensitive to it now, or if there are legitimately more stupid people on Kinja these days, but the amount of people with broken sarcasm/satire detectors just seems through the roof. From this post.
Because you oughtta.
Hi, been a while. Strange days in the world, odd things in the personal life. I’ll lead with the puppy! Meet Artemis!
It’s Memorial Day weekend, for Christ’s sakes. Can’t you do better than a Fidget Spinner and two maybe-nonexistent nail files?
Did you guys see the recent speech from the mayor of New Orleans, Mitch Landrieu? It was pretty good. New Orleans has been removing its confederate monuments, and he spoke at the removal of the last one on why it was the right thing to do (and it still baffles me that there are people who dispute that).
“Behind the rainbows, behind the love slogans, there is a faction. They might only be a fringe, but they are incredibly active and toxic, this is not just a US thing. And they will not cease until all ‘normies’ obey and worship them.”
Someone hijacking a post about cults on Lifehacker to air his grievances about how OMG MEAN!!!! the scary Gawker and Jezebel feminists are.
I’m excited about the new Twin Peaks, so of course I read the piece on The Muse where they rewatched Fire Walk with Me and talked about it. I did not expect the amount of eyerolling that was pulled out of me when reading Rich’s thoughts on the matter.
