"I wouldn’t tell my nine-year-old self anything! I’ve seen Back to the Future enough to know that you don’t mess with time. Nice try, bro."

— Chris Pratt, responding to “What if you could tell your nine-year-old self, “One day, you’ll be starring in a film based on these comics you love?” - Rolling Stone, Issue 1215. (via captainsassmerica)

Nicki Minaj is not a woman who easily slides into the roles assigned to women in her industry or elsewhere. She’s not polished, she’s not concerned with her reputation, and she’s certainly not fighting for equality among mainstream second-wave feminists. She’s something else, and she’s something equally worth giving credence to: a boundary-breaker, a nasty bitch, a self-proclaimed queen, a self-determined and self-made artist. She’s one of the boys, and she does it with the intent to subvert what it means. She sings about sexy women, about fucking around with different men. She raps about racing ahead in the game, imagines up her own strings of accolades, and rolls with a rap family notorious for dirty rhymes, foul mouths, and disregard for authority and hegemony.

While Beyoncé has expanded feminist discourse by reveling in her role as a mother and wife while also fighting for women’s rights, Minaj has been showing her teeth in her climb to the top of a male-dominated genre. Both, in the process, have expanded our society’s idea of what an empowered women looks like — but Minaj’s feminist credentials still frequently come under fire. To me, it seems like a clear-cut case of respectability politics and mainstreaming of the feminist movement: while feminist writers raved over Beyoncé’s latest album and the undertones of sexuality and empowerment that came with it, many have questioned Minaj’s decisions over the years to subvert beauty norms using her own body, graphically talk dirty in her work, and occasionally declare herself dominant in discourse about other women. (All of these areas of concern, however, didn’t seem to come into play when Queen Bey did the same.)

That too fat to get out of its hole prairie dog doesn’t have the same place in my heart as boinging off a glass wall manatee, but it definitely has the adjoining suite. I just need some kind giant with a gentle touch and a handy towel to wedge me out of my hole despite my tiny rodent protestations. That’s all any of us need really, right?

We’ve got spirit?

sotheresthat:

Please keep in mind before reading this text of an email I just got from corporate HR, that we have never in my nine years of working at this place done anything remotely … team-buildy or spirited or whatever. 

Attention [redacted] Employees!!!!!   Tomorrow, August 29th, is College Colors Day!  Show your team spirit by wearing your college colors, send your picture(s), name and ext. to [blah blah blah] and be entered into a drawing for a restaurant gift card!!! 

What if you went to a wee tiny school in the northeast that didn’t have a football team? Am I meant to come into work naked? Can I just take the day off?

Man, I WISH we’d have a college spirit day. They would so regret it.

"Another time, Jack took a call. A voice on the other end said, ‘There are three of us down here in the lobby. We want to see the guy who does this disgusting comic book and show him what real Nazis would do to his Captain America’. To the horror of others in the office, Kirby rolled up his sleeves and headed downstairs. The callers, however, were gone by the time he arrived."
