April 7, 2013: “You caught up on him on goals, and then he gets the empty netter.”
Does anyone remember a series of tweets by Mark Lazerus about how Kane never lets Toews catch him up in goals? He even asked someone to provide the numbers on this. And once, he predicted Kane would be the next to score simply because Jonny had caught up with him again.
Malia Hale + Really hating math
me too Malia me to
Iii…. this annoys the crap out of me. It’s such a stereotypical “girl” thing. “Oh look, Malia’s wild and ferocious, but she hates math! See? She can still be a hot girl!”
I mean seriously. Pick economics, or history, or literally any other non-“boy”-subject. C’mon.
Uhh, I wasn’t aware there were “boy” and “girl” subjects. Jesus, who doesn’t hate math? Guys hate math too. I’m a girl and I hate math, does that make me stereotypical? I think it makes perfect sense for someone who spent several years as a coyote to find math confusing and unenjoyable.
Yeah, that was actually my point- there AREN’T boy or girl subjects, or there shouldn’t be. But it’s a cultural trope that girls don’t like/aren’t good at math, so it’s an easy/lazy way for the show to shorthand that Malia is still “like other girls”, and thus a “safe” love interest for Stiles, even though she’s pushy and wild and uncouth (“unsafe”, “non-girly” things). It’s playing to our cultural coding to push a romantic relationship between them.
It definitely *does* make sense for someone with a thus-far elementary school education to find high school math confusing and unenjoyable, absolutely. …but that would also be true of *any* subject she were in. So, they could have reasonably picked any other subject, and it would have been plausible that she were struggling, but they picked the one that makes her more suitably, culturally, feminine.
Singer CeeLo Green took to Twitter today to make an attempt to define what rape is, shortly after pleading no contest for charges that he slipped a woman ecstasy without her consent in 2012
I have never thought about it in this context
that’s actually really, really creepy.
I once pointed this out to my mother and she just stared at me, in stunned silence for ages.
There will always be a girl who is less sober, less secure, with less friends walking in a darker part of town. I want her safe just as much as I want me safe.
I know a lot of people don’t like Malia, but personally I feel more sad about her squandered potential. Her scenes that *aren’t* all about Stiles are good - there’s potential in her trying to find her birth mother, and about her conflicted feelings relating to her adoptive mother’s death in relation to that. There’s potential in her trying to find her feet in a new environment, dealing with school and her adoptive father and living in a house again and people and social requirements in a way that’s not “lol that crazy Malia, she eats deer!” But is actually serious and thoughtful and could provide a parallel for other people who feel isolated or removed from what’s considered normal. There’s potential in her dealing with the knowledge that her birth father is a psychotic murderer, and how that affects her and who she is, both generally and specifically to what happened to her adoptive mother and sister.
But instead we get Stalia, kissing scenes every thirty seconds so we don’t forget they’re dating (NO HOMO!!!!!! LOOK NO HOMO!!!! KISSING A GIRL!!!!!!), and the only emotions she’s allowed to show are related to whether or not Stiles likes her.
Malia isn’t the problem with s4. Even Stalia isn’t the problem. But both are symptoms of the exceptionally poor writing this season, the complete collapse of any coherent plot, and the utter failure to manage even a single character well.
If anything, Malia as a potential character is a victim of season 4. Because she could’ve been awesome, if she’d been handled properly.
A shark jump is when a show does something so preposterous and beyond belief that the show can never go back to the way it was before - eg. After Fonzie jumped over a shark on a pair of waterskis, Happy Days could never again just be a show about a family with teenaged kids and a guy living over their garage. TW hasn’t jumped the shark. The writing and plot have just become shitty beyond belief.
UGH THEY BOTH DO THE SAME THING
THAT ‘YEAH MY BRO DUDE FRIEND JUST PUT HIS ARM AROUND ME’
‘SO I’M GONNA HOLD HIS HAND’
‘BECAUSE THAT’S A BRO THING’
‘JUST GONNA SQUEEZE HIS HAND. FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME’
HAND-HOLDING IS MANLY, OKAY, DON’T JUDGE THEM
BROS CAN GROPE BROS
SO LONG AS THOSE BROS UNDERSTAND QUITE CLEARLY THAT JONNY AND PATRICK WERE EACH OTHER’S BROS -FIRST-, OKAY
THAT IS NOT JEALOUSY THAT IS JUST DIBS
The fact that Kaner switches the bottle to his other hand just so that he can hold Tazer’s hand
And the fact that Jonny can’t decide which of Kaner’s hands to hold.
Team Canada knows how to make an entrance
[on diversity in media] I think its social responsibility. I think it’s our responsibility to stand up and say what we want. It think if you look at television in the past two years, it’s becoming the decade of the female. Like, all these new shows with female leads. Even if you look at television, as well as cable, as well as films, there’s been a resurgence, as far as the leading woman in Hollywood, which is great. And I think we’re also at the point now…you know, it’s interesting…x
I need feminism; because the bra straps of a twelve year old shouldn’t make a 40 year old married principal with two daughters “uncomfortable”
So am I allowed to walk around adult women who are mothers and grandmothers at work with my cock out or what
in what world is someone’s dick equivalent to a fucking bra strap
Two posts up is a stellar example of a pedophile.
