I played with a tampon shell (I can’t remember if I put it in my mouth but it was probable based on the shape) when I was a little older than that. Unless you’ve been taught what these things are, kids will touch things & put them in their mouth. » 4/23/15 12:07am 4/23/15 12:07am

Yes, he’s good, but that shouldn’t matter. The fact is, the Hollywood industry is so insistent on maintaining its demographic of white men that it’s unwilling to invest in talented minorities. Who knows how many people of David O. Russell’s caliber (but not his dipshitness) we’re leaving behind, to prop up these… » 4/19/15 12:11am 4/19/15 12:11am

I’ve been in these situations before where I regretted not saying something. I’m sure she felt pissed upon thinking about it, but situational factors, internal biases & norms are powerful influencers.

I'm Asian & this is totally a problem so you won't get heat from me. Leading Asian actors (Maggie Q, Olivia Munn) who are mixed are more acceptable in Western media because of their Western features (height an important example).

His question to me was what if they actually wanted it. Just goes to show how much… » 3/11/15 11:32pm 3/11/15 11:32pm

I don't think the video was necessarily creepy, but I am concerned that in this modern age, with the high rates of divorce (from Baby Boomers, by the way! Don't blame the Millenials!), that he held his intention to marry this woman, for a year. A year! Then expects an answer from her within seconds. Why do we do… » 3/10/15 2:13pm 3/10/15 2:13pm

Tink Embraces Being a Feminist, Says She's 'Not the Ideal Pop Star'

Plenty of female pop stars have actively avoided the label "feminist." The sad but somewhat valid fear is that it carries too much weight.
