But yes, we Americans should definitely have unfettered access to weapons of war because we definitely can be trusted with them.

This is a solid list of interesting Game of Thrones subplots that were just completely abandoned by the writers. With the exception of Renly, I tend to agree with all of this. Still mad about Cersei’s prophecy and The Prince Who Was Promised.
LOL, NBC didn’t trademark “Dunder Mifflin” and someone else bought it and now they’re suing him, accusing him of being a “trademark squatter”—which he definitely is.
According to star Tatiana Maslany, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is going to be the “antithesis” of superhero stories—or “typical MCU stories” as the headline would have you believe. Now, when I see this headline, I read it to mean that the show won’t be just an onslaught of bad CGI and instead focus on the story and characters rather than endless action sequences. But when you read the article, what she actually means is her character rejects the call to action — she doesn’t want to be a superhero at first. The Rejection of the Call, of course, is an integral part of the hero’s journey, and often features in superhero stories, so, no, it sounds pretty typical to me — albeit with probably more courtroom scenes than a typical superhero series. And this is a long way to go to say I wish WandaVision hadn’t devolved into a typical MCU CGI mess because it was SO GOOD for the first few episodes. I mean, it was fine as a whole but it could have been great AND I WON’T BE FOOLED AGAIN, TATIANA.

Friends creator Marta Kauffman is doing a lot of self-reflection lately, and is now sorry for misgendering Chandler’s trans mom.
I cannot think of anything that helps women’s rights less than pinning the blame on trans women. They face so much violence and scrutiny as is. Leave them alone and focus on the real war on women. It’s happening in the courts and legislatures around this country.
