Anonymous asked: It is more about don't liking a female character because of her flaws while at the same time they like a male character and they justify the same flaws.
gingerhaze: From a message: I don’t think you can really say that there’s no such thing as a bad female character. And the way you’re approaching this is (possibly unintentionally) indicating that you believe that. We very much do have a problem in fiction works where some writers over-sexualize female characters instead of developing their personalities -This is a problem because in same...
If you don’t have a massive alternative universe in your head with developed people and stories you’re lying
I’m directing my thesis this semester in a direction inspired by Keith Haring. My plan is to come up with a bunch of designs and ultimately print those on to products I’d eventually sell. The only problem I’m having is coming up with a theme or focus for the designs. I’m finding it difficult to not just be a knock off of Keith Haring, but the simplicity and almost universal...
I finally saw Lincoln, and it may just rank among my favorite movies ever. It was just phenomenal.
I really should put some serious thought into what I’m doing for my thesis this coming semester but instead I’m making my fingers raw trying to learn Iron and Wine songs on guitar.

I push this essay a lot but your review is really touching on ideas described in Jean Baudrillard’s essay “Simulation and Simulacra.” While I don’t think there’s a good argument for how artificially created events (a deeply flawed phrase) are not real...

gingerhaze: I walk in front of a car just about every week because I’m a dumbass. This has become a far too frequent fantasy.
Einstein’s phrase “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results” defines much of my experience at MICA. Every year it’s gotten increasingly harder to find the motivation to pick up a pen again and it’s shown no signs of getting any better. Here I am right now skipping class because I didn’t do any work yesterday and now I’m struggling to get myself to sit down...

These are favourites so far: The Benjamin Franklin Effect - You grow to like people for whom you do nice things and hate people you harm.

ajohnny: If I ever become a freshman-year writing professor — not that I ever plan to go down that road, but let’s pretend — I’d assign political interviews and news commentaries as study texts. Few sources better promise the effort of separating a text from its surrounding prejudices, what I see from … In regards to the Huffington’s Post article about Paul Ryan’s stance on...
