Oh, God, that's exhausting.
I have ninety-nine problems, and one of them is a woman problem, but it's down there between my terror-of-the-future problem and realizing- my-right-shoe-is-mysteriously-too-tight for my foot now problem
@commanderbanana OH MAN YOU MADE A SIMILAR JOKE TO WHAT I WAS GOING TO MAKE.
@Statham No high fives, please. We're British. I'll accept polite *hmmphs* and no longer than a 3-second moment of eye contact before we nod and move on our separate ways. Anything longer makes me break out in a cold sweat under my itchy sweater.
Aaron Sorkin/the Newsroom really does have a woman problem, tho'.
Can we talk about how this is I think the first Hairpin post ever where the links open in a separate page??? ::DIES OF HAPPINESS IN WHAT IS NOT AT ALL AN OVERREACTION::
@Sharone@twitter You know that you can make links open in a separate page any time you want, right? It may be different depending on your computer/browser, but on my Mac/Chrome it's command-click. Or you can right-click and the option will be there.
@fondue with cheddar Yes! I'm just generally lazy/forgetful. Probably 30% lazy and 70% forgetful on your average day. Thanks for the reminder. :)
@Sharone - Text expansion can make it easier:)
@Sharone Sorry about the reminder, it's just that I never need a reminder that I'm lazy/forgetful. It's the one thing I never forget. ;)
Most/all of these are legit complaints, but for the life of me I can't help but think of this: http://www.wfmu.org/listen.m3u?show=50561&archive=87498 (mp3)
As someone who uses "woman problem" to euphemistically refer to her, er, monthly woman problem, ifyouknowwhatimean, this is somehow even more hilarious.
(I MEAN THE NEW YORK TIMES IS ON ITS PERIOD.)
@TheBourneApproximation I do too! I was also amused.
@TheBourneApproximation and here I thought the Gray Lady was already menopausal.
TL;DR. But TV overall has a woman problem:
I immediately thought of Breaking Bad (two weeks, y'all), but Mad Men, too.
I don't think "Orange is the New Black" has a woman problem.
@bevrockin The only woman problem OItNB has is that there are so many great female characters, I can't decide which one is my favorite.
I love The Walking Dead, but I agree that it has a woman problem. SPOILER ALERT
I never liked or respected Lori, but now she's a dead magical vision of Rick's conscience, which is stupid. The evolution of Andrea's character has been really good, and just when I started actually liking her they had to go and kill her! If anything happens to Carol (whose evolution I am also enjoying), I will be extremely pissed.
Ugh, did I forget to close a tag? Anyway, I just wanted to say MICHONNE! I forgot about her because she's new, but she is badass as hell, and I'm so glad she didn't get killed off. She'd better fucking stay.
@ Hellz yeah Michonne.
Disappointed that calculator doesn't read 5318008
I am not going to click on a single one of those so help me god I swear. ugh.
This is really like a game of link roulette where every one of those articles is going to piss me off, right? Did you sneak Nyan Cat in one of them instead as a delightful treat?
some thoughts after reading about ten of the above links:
I just told my husband a few days ago that I want to have a baby (our first) just so I can try my hand at raising strong, independent people who aren't afraid to go after what they want, and aren't afraid of challenging the status quo. The Pixar piece hit it right on the head: we shouldn't spend too much time congratulating people/businesses for employing women in positions of power because it's 2013, dammit, and it should already be the norm. Sometimes it feels like one step forward, two steps back.
Also, the DIY post on here the other day contributed to a semi-meltdown: Are we really retreating to the kitchen/craft room because the world at large has no place for us?! We have to make a place for ourselves IN the world, not apart from it! It made me want to burn my sewing machine (but, but I do so love to sew...).
Ajlkjdfkjlk. So many feelings on the Hairpin in the past couple weeks!
I thought this was going to be about the New Yorker: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/27/new-yorker-all-male-issue-april-29-2013_n_3169623.html?utm_hp_ref=women
But everyone has a woman problem, so I guess it is about everyone.
I'm a bit confused. If one simply looks at this page it seems clear that virtually everyone is being accused of having a "woman problem"...? It seems to me that this indicates a different problem then what is being claimed, namely that there are those that see a problem everywhere they look, which gives me pause. Is it possible that the hyperbole is taking over and maybe some careful thought is in order?
