ugh lol mte tbh
@Jia Tolentino it's because trans women are sex perverts who are turned on by the notion of having lady-parts!!! It's not about female identity, it's about erotic compulsion!!!! (A lot of things in this article made me gag but that one was the WORST.)
Wasn't the former CEO (aside from being a weirdo and a racist) one of those free-market Ayn-Rand-reading types? Gee, what could be more free market than trying to legally stop other people from making and selling things that you also make and sell?
@I AM DIAPHENA That makes me understand the lyric change less. Is that rude?
What is this lazy, not-nearly-as-good-as-the-original cover tbqh? Morose piano is no substitute for funky drum machine beats, capricious like the feelings of new and possibly-requited love. Also, starting the song with "oh it's you I know" (which LOL) instead of the original "there's this boy..." gives me major "no homo" vibes.
@I AM DIAPHENA Sometimes, yes! But usually it's because CNN is all "oh, this person looks Asian, nobody will understand any of what they're saying unless we read it in an OTT, stereotypical YU WAN CHIKEN? type accent."
This is so sweet!
Off-topic-ish, I am so stoked that the English voiceover for the Japanese robot technician doesn't have, like, an "ethnic" accent. I notice that business on American news media all the time and it drives me right up the fuckin' wall. You stay not-racist, BBC!
@Don'tcallmeJenny And Jenny, I get that, but.
I HAVE A LOT OF SOLANGE FEELINGS. I've always thought she seems way cool and fun and super relaxed. I like her taste a lot. She is incredible on "True" and super fun in concert. Yes, her Met Ball outfit looked like a complete disaster, and yes, before this elevator thing probably a lot of people had never ever heard of her. Yes, she is second-string to Beyonce, but she has had to be second-string to Beyonce her entire life. Wouldn't that piss you off sometimes, maybe just a little bit, in your most private and intimate elevator moments? I'm not saying that it is right or defensible to physically assault somebody, but isn't it maybe, like, even just a little... understandable?
I guess what I am saying is that 1) I don't know the details of what happened and I'm not going to pass judgment in any direction and I hope everybody directly involved comes out of this relatively OK, and 2) I RLY DON'T APPRECIATE that "Solange" is treated as the lesser in every single one of these quotes.
On Going Blonde
AHHHH, YAS. I am also a natural dark-hair who just bleaches the whole thing, so this speaks to me. I like to think that it just filters out people who are intimidated or otherwise put-off by "dumb/frivolous/too party," but is it really their loss over mine? Is the hair color I chose mostly for hilarity depriving me of the secretly rewarding companionship of surly Morrissey-types?
