"Don’t take a nude pic if you’re a famous woman and don’t want it leaked."

mysharona1987:

"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."

"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."

"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."

"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."

Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.

This.

Made some cover art for the podcast I cohost.
It’s called That Thing You Like and we do an in depth analysis of pop culture, one media item at a time.
We think media is super important and far more than “just entertainment.” So, we take a critical look at the mostly good (and sometimes bad) aspects of your favourite TV shows, movies, music, books, comics, internet… stuff, etc.
Mostly we just love media and want to share that love with you. Think of us as your friends who also like that thing that you like and want to talk a whole bunch about it. Or, maybe we know of a thing we think you will totally like and want to recommend you check it out!

This is a great podcast that I really enjoy listening too. I like it both for their analysis of things I like and also because I love listening to lifelong friends be friends at each other. Like, you just wanna sit down in between them and you’re all sharing a soda with three straws sticking out of it and everything’s the best because FRIENDSHIP IS THE BEST.

There’s no chance you don’t already know this, but Erika Moen is THE GREATEST AND NICEST PERSON. If you don’t read Oh Joy Sex Toy and DAR they’re only two of the greatest things ever put on the internet.

And then I saw that Melissa Fumero had been cast as Amy Santiago on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and I felt my guts roll up into my throat and try to escape out of my mouth. Omgomgomgomg that’s it then. There’s no way in hell a major network is gonna cast two Latina actresses in such a tight ensemble show I AM SCREWED.

And then next day my agents called and told me I’d booked it.

I couldn’t believe it. I had been saying to my boyfriend the night before how there was JUST NO WAY. Normally, The Latina is a singular element of the ensemble she is working in. She’s there to provide contrast, or sexuality, or humor. Or she’s there to clean the floors and/or steal your man. There are some serious stereotypes very much alive in film and TV today, and The Latina is one of them.

Here’s the thing though. The world is changing. Slowly but surely, television is changing. The character stereotypes are changing, or being turned inside out by some fantastic writers and actors (I’m looking at you, Orange is the New Black, Scandal, and The Mindy Project). People of color are on TV playing roles that are fleshed out, complex, human. And yes, some of those characters are maids. Some are sexy heartbreakers there to steal your man. Some own BBQ joints, while some are Chiefs of Staff. Some are prisoners, and some are cops. All are real people with hopes, dreams, ambitions, fears, and all the other vast human emotions and desires…

…This is important. Because young women are watching TV, and they are getting messages about who they are in the world, who the world will allow them to be. And in big important steps, television is showing a reflection back to those young women that YOU CAN BE WHATEVER THE HELL YOU DAMN WELL PLEASE, and that two Latinas on one show is NORMAL. I think that’s a win for everybody.
