- Apparently there's going to be a an Indian call center comedy in the fall lineup. I can see that Fail Train a-chuggin' right into the station from miles away.
- Wonderful essay on how we collect media, hoard it, and then have to let it go.
- On Lady Cops and the Necessity of Sexiness. I have to hand it to Erin Gibson, she's getting better at this gig with each new "Modern Lady."
- There are gays in the Tea Party! A whole two of them!
- And because this is what happens when I can't move my energy into doing school-related stuff, a huge post on why Boys Don't Cry is extremely problematic.

What happens when Natty Light enters my apartment. I swear this was neither intentional, nor do I remember putting it in the freezer.

So, there's going to be two, count 'em, two young trans men on English-language television next season. And none of them are played by Daniela Sea (much as I do like her)! One could call it an abundance, almost. The way the characters are framed, though, has some troubling implications.
The hell is up with conservatives flipping their shit that Gabourey Sidibe is on People's "Most Beautiful People" list? I feel like I need a combined fatphobic/racist bingo card just to make it through their posts.

FYI: Both links go to Sadly, No!, not the actual blogs. As with all S,N! posts, enter the comments section at your own risk. One of them does have an interesting discussion on Zoe Salanda and the context of her first major two roles(esp. Avatar, where she is the Colored Native opposite The Honkey That We Needed) - which then devolves into Star Trek nerdery. However, it's pretty far down.

And the GID entry in DSM-V Draft is...hmm. In my reading, it's more realistic than DSM-IV, and has some important recognitions in the notes:

Over the phone yesterday I told [personal profile] katarik that I rarely had enough time nowadays to read bad porn, which is very sad. However, I make time for what I can -- and when Ravenous Romance puts out a new free short story, the reaction may be Pavlovian.


"The Cactus League Society" (an m/m romance) is no match for "Handsome and Petal," certainly, but it does draw the obvious parallel. Which, really, is all I can ask for.

Westward Ho! )

BONUS: Oh, yes, Ravenous Romance, I think I am indeed seeing what you did there with the strategically placed V.

- Apparently, Local Apartment Complex is taking lessons from Evony's advertising team.

Large image warning. )

Of course, the last ad doesn't even bother having any information about the apartment complex at all.

- New Ping Your Spaceman post on Tampax's problematic "man with a vagina" ad campaign.

- I keep finding and purchasing Avatar: The Last Airbender DVDs on $3 clearance, all the while still having a huge existing show backlog already. And this is not counting the fact Avatar is a gamble for me, because I wasn't won over by the first few bits I saw, though it tried very, very hard.

I shall commit myself to getting at least half of S&A's last season done tonight if I can stave the guilt off long enough.
As we all know, advertising aimed at women kind of fails spectacularly pretty regularly. But I think we've hit a new low (or high) with the Fling, which is described as,
"Wrapped in a shiny pink and sliver package, this delicate "chocolate finger" is intended for women. The word "finger" is an industry term for a long, slim confection, Mars spokesman Ryan Bowling says, but with ads that invite you to "Pleasure yourself" in pink lettering, consumers might come to other conclusions."
And nothing says classy like an ad which implies dressing-room sex!

Possibly the best description of the entire endeavor? "The language of it has so much sexual innuendo, you could pack it into a trashy novel."

WAIT WAIT WAIT! BUT THERE'S MORE! The New Zealand advertising campaign lets users create your own custom man to "have a harmless fling" with, as well as allowing women to "send out flirty e-mails."
