On "Starstruck," The Kinks AND Rachel Shukert

@Katzen-party I laughed SO HARD reading "Everything is Going to Be Great" that the blonde-haired, blue-eyed Texas housewife sitting next to me on the plane had me write down the title so she could read it.

@LinaLamont With Julie you sacrifice the vision of Vanessa with white lipstick and a serious beehive. But Vanessa cain't touch Julie's Simple Joys of Maidenhood.

On Et Tu, Sunflower the Centaur?

@stuffisthings Yeah, I know that, but I'm using language in the context of our treatment. But I think it's also problematic to insinuate author intention. Because, why wouldn't you want to civilize cannibal savages? And the answer is, "Hey kid, why don't you take a course on post-colonialism when you get to college and let me finish reading you this awesome bedtime story?"

@Elsajeni Censoring is worse. Period. And what happens when I children grow up and don't know how to approach racism or our racist past?

On Et Tu, Sunflower the Centaur?

@H.E. Ladypants I don't think any one ever creates content thinking to themselves, "Gee, I hope a hundred years from now, some super sensi-types come along and take out all the yucky parts I leave in."

On Et Tu, Sunflower the Centaur?

@Megano! I'm with you. I think it is incredibly dangerous to deny the fact that history is full of cultural marginalization and racism.
