I’ve got do a little rant about The Mindy Project b/c it’s on my mind a lot lately.
This season of The Mindy Project has just really let me down. There’s just something about it that is off putting. It still has its moments and laughs but there are episodes that I’m pretty sure wouldn’t even pass The Bechdel Test which is sad given a female lead. There’s so many no homo and bitches be crazy jokes in it now that I’m always at a slight level of irritation and I used to really, really like the show.
On the flip-side Brooklyn Nine-Nine is pretty fuckin fantastic. It’s funny as hell with a similarly large cast that has better chemistry. There’s a clear base of equality across the board not just in gender but people of color and sexual orientation as well. It challenges societal gender expectations and I’ve begun to really look forward to the new episodes. :)
“Women feel more guilt than men, not because of some weird chromosomal issue but because they have a history of being blamed for other people’s behavior. You get hit, you must have annoyed someone; you get raped, you must have excited someone; your kid is a junkie, you must have brought him up wrong.”—Guilt Poisons Women by Germaine Greer (via mymangotree)
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”—
Surprise beautiful person! Once you get this, you must put it into 8 peoples asks (anonymously) who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's nice to know that someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out. Stay strong :')
My new dentist (or rather the dentist I got because my root canal was an emergency and MY dentist only works certain hours) just called me to check up on me and was super nice and it’s really crazy how caring some people still are in this world.
