over a 20-year period, asking some 2,000 men in college questions like this: “Have you ever had sexual intercourse with someone, even though they did not want to, because they were too intoxicated [on alcohol or drugs] to resist your sexual advances?”, or “Have you ever had sexual intercourse with an adult when they didn’t want to because you used physical force [twisting their arm, holding them down, etc.] if they didn’t cooperate?”
About 1 in 16 men answered “yes” to these or similar questions.
1 in sixteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen are you kidding me
if we got 1 in 16 motherfuckers admitting to raping women on college campuses and are “very forthcoming. In fact, they are eager to talk about their experience”, you better fucking believe tossing out your short skirt and staying in at night isn’t going to keep you safe.
you:oh my url is.. *violently sprays friend in eye with mace spray, friend falls to ground in agony, you take out your fake mexican passport with the name 'hugo fernadez' on it and run as fast as you can to the nearest airport where you board a plane to mexico and take up a career in chicken farming for the next 10 years*
“Why should women be paid equal to men? Men have been in the working world a lot longer and deserve to be paid at a higher rate. Heck, I’m a working mom and I’m not paid a dime. I depend on my husband to provide for me and my family, as should most women… and if a woman does work, she should be…
In case you needed reinforcing as to why last night’s episode was monumental. (The below is merely an excerpt form Seitz’s blog post.)
And as in “Critical Film Studies” — still the show’s aesthetic peak, though this episode came close — you got to see the show’s actors show off their chops in service of a story. When we were watching Abed “play” Jeff Winger, we were not seeing Jeff, but Abed’s conception of Jeff, which was plenty intriguing. But there was something equally thrilling happening at the level of pure performance: We were seeing Joel McHale play Jeff Winger as imagined by Abed. McHale was channeling aspects of Danny Pudi’s screen presence (the intense stare, the birdlike head movements and jabbing hand gestures, the slightly clipped delivery) even as he was playing “himself.”
I’ve read elsewhere that Pudi should get an Emmy for this episode, and I’d be delighted if he got one. He deserved one for “Critical Film Studies,” in which he played Abed playing Andre Gregory in My Dinner With Andre while dissecting his self-image in a candid, unexpectedly serious conversation with Jeff. But it would be ironic indeed if this were the episode that finally won Pudi some kind of industry recognition for his brilliance, because much of our insight into Abed came via McHale’s performance as Abed/Jeff, and from Alison Brie’s equally complex but more emotionally direct performance as Annie, who struggled to separate her feelings about Abed from her feelings for Jeff.
I can’t think of many shows in the history of American network TV that have managed Community’s trick of being pretty much like every sitcom you’ve ever seen and like nothing you’ve seen anywhere, in any medium. It’s at once a goofy, shenanigans-driven comedy, a self-aware commentary on pop culture, and an examination of ethical and philosophical concepts, and it demands to be viewed on all three levels simultaneously; that’s a lot to ask of people who are mainly looking to unwind on Thursday night.
never have i agreed with a thing someone said about a television show so hard
Help! For like two weeks now, I can’t expand the little grey gif box and see the animation. It’ll just freeze on the first frame if I open it in my Dash. It works on the individual blog, so I know it’s not a size issue, and I downloaded missing e., so I’m pretty sure it’s not a Dash fail.
Woof. Why the hate? Sometimes I’m not up to date on what’s going on…
Just another ignorant fuck who doesn’t get it. *headdesk* Gender and sexuality are fluid, you jackass, and people don’t always fit into a box. Learn the goddamn lesson already and stop spreading fucking hate speech like it’s the LGBT code of conduct.
Who takes a gay man who discriminates against other people based on their sexual orientation seriously, anyway? Irony, much?
But mostly, I can’t even adequately address his attitude towards rape right now. I mostly want to cry and scream into my keyboard that this sexist, rape-apologist pig shouldn’t be allowed to give advice to dogs looking for a place to shit, nevermind a woman needing guidance about recovering from violent sexual assault and its effect on her marriage.
