"I decided to leave my life eight months ago. Since then, I’ve been to Finland with a Latin American ballroom dancing team, toured Sweden with a Greek, met some Canadians in Amsterdam to watch the Olympics, and I’m about to head to Iraq to teach social media to soldiers in war zones."
My god Rich people are so full of shit. If I ‘left my life’ right now I could probably travel to the end of the bus line for about a week until my pass expired , then I’d have to get a job again.
The report also breaks down in grim detail how women characters are more likely to be younger; more likely to be deprived of an occupation, goal, or leadership position; and less likely to be in any sort of leadership position. But perhaps the most upsetting revelation of the study is—much like the numbers of women working behind the scenes—the number of women represented on screen is actually *worse* than it was about 10 years ago. In 2002, 16 percent of characters in mainstream films were female.
Cossacks are the best light troops among all that exist. If I had them in my army, I would go through all the world with them.
Here’s the new trailer for our Web Series ‘Sisters of Mercy’. It’s a Superhero story of two sisters who control space and time and fight against dark inter-dimensional forces. Think Dr.Strange meets Buffy.
This trailer was made for a grant in Canada and the more views/shares we get the bigger an impact our application has. We’re committed to having a Super Hero series that falls more in line with Comics than modern Hero media. We want women of color as the main characters and strong female role models for our fans.
If the trailer strikes your fancy and, like us, you want more Women of Color represented in Superhero media : Please Share! Your support can make this happen—
"Hey Bob , Supe had a real job"
I talked to young people at a party and now I’m worried Fandom doesn’t know about this. Everyone thought I was crazy!—
"Probably the biggest ‘that’s so gay’ moment of the entire movie happens when you realize the hero of the movie, Sam, has a poster of a young and gorgeous Rob Lowe sporting a crop top on his closet door.
The hero of the movie is, to many, obviously gay and, might I add, also the only one in the entire movie that has his head on straight. While everyone else in his family, grandpa included, are off chasing the opposite sex and making stupid decisions, Sam is just singing in the bathtub about he ‘ain’t gotta man’ and enjoying being fabulous.
Funnily enough, even with his fashionably fierce choices of clothing, including a ‘Born To Shop’ t-shirt, many people argue that Sam ISN’T gay because it isn’t actually stated. They forget that ‘The Lost Boys’ was from 1987 when North America was terrified of the gay community because of the AIDs epidemic. Hollywood wasn’t ready for an openly gay hero, especially wherein his sexuality wasn’t central to the story. To be fair, I’m not sure it is today.
The Lost Boys was an incredibly progressive movie. As a horror film, it marked a major shift from the classic gothic Dracula-esque vampire to a modern day, could-be-any-one of us monsters. As a piece of queer history, it is the first horror film, and possibly one of the first films period, that features a queer hero. A queer hero that is very obviously open and comfortable with all of his interests, from shopping to comics and of course, Rob Lowe.”
