On "You Win, Or You Die": On the Women of Game of Thrones

@rathermarvelous frankly i found your comment more interesting than the original essay, which seems to barely scratch the obvious surface of this pretty involved topic.
interesting how, as you say, cersei internalizes, embodies, and yet despises the patriarchy of westeros. although she doesn't identify as male, she wants to act as male, literally reenacting things men around her have done. i'm thinking of the scene where she seduces a woman just as robert would have, becoming a reincarnation of him just as she has before with her drinking, getting fat, having affairs, etc. there's a lot more to say about this!

On Cancel "What Americans Will Look Like in 2050"

here i was, pretty excited to see an upswing in comments around these parts. i should have known! fascinating that an article on the rhetoric of internet pseudo-science evokes such nonsensical responses. some of these complaints about racism or something are completely 100% illegible. not that you could have taken any of that bullshit seriously, but i thought your critique was funny and accurate as ever, jia. thanks for posting it!

@Rock and Roll Ken Doll totally! it's crazy to see how they all have their own personalities. my vegetarianism has gotten a little bit militant after this experience, haha.

@coolallison you have inspired me to try out that album immediately. reinventing axl rose is one of my top five all-time favorites.

thanks for posting the chick pix. i'm three weeks into owning some baby chicks of my own, so anything chicken-related is right up my alley. any fellow 'pinners raised these babies before?
