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.

Sadly, though, he looks rather out of it in our group shot.

Out of curiosity, I also checked out the descriptions for Ravenous Romance's other '12 Days of Christmas' short stories )
