my dad just recently learned about “omg”
reasons i want to look GOOD
- for myself
- for myself
- to plant the seed of envy in other bitch’s hearts
- for myself
Me trying to finish something important on time:
this should not be making me laugh so hard
Totoro Macarons with Green Tea Cream Cheese Filling! （人´∀`*）
I’m officially naming this award season “the year stars stopped giving a fuck”
Far be it for me to dispute Cate Blanchett, or the larger point she’s making, but the guys are all wearing the same thing. If the camera were to do that to the guys, it’d just be black pants over… and over…. and over…
I agree. In this particular case, it’s apples and oranges. Tuxes versus gowns. Photocopies versus unique work. Perhaps their real foul was not running the shot by her before hand.
I would like to point out, though, the salacious nature of the slow pan up a woman’s body. In this particular case, detail isn’t usually put on the hem of a dress (because no one wants to see hand beading or embroidery get dirty or ripped out by an errant stiletto), and a full-body shot would be better to showcase the drape and design of these beautiful gowns like in the fashion plate glossies. Starting at the bottom and slowly panning up dehumanizes women because you don’t see their faces until you’ve seen the rest of their bodies. Their identities don’t matter.
That’s a really good point, thank you.

This was so refreshing to read that I read it four more times.
You can’t paraphrase the bible. And you can’t say “oh the bible says homosexuality is a sin” and then discount all the other things the bible says are a sin because their inconvenient and impractical.
Things the bible bans that are impractical:
- Bird eating
- Pig eating
- Torn clothes
- Beard shaving
- Hair cutting
- Touching unclean things
- Wine in church
- Working on Sunday
- Going to church 33 day after giving birth to a boy
- Going to church 66 days after giving birth to a girl
- Touching a women while she’s on her period
- Having sex while a woman is on her period (It’s kink I think)
- Using God’s name in vain
- Mixing fabrics
- Cross-breeding animals
tl:dr: Basically if you don’t support gay marriage because the bible bans it, but you don’t follow ALL of the other things the bible bans you are a bloody fucking hypocrite.
But didn’t you just paraphrased the bible to prove your point…?
I’m not asking this to argue about gay marriage, I’m just pointing this out as a religious studies student. Also, since when was stealing and lying practical?
Actually, the more I read this, the more this post is a load of bullocks. I’m assuming most of these rules were found in Deuteronomy and Leviticus, which are located in the Hebrew Bible / Old Testament. There was no such thing as Church during those times, even when Jesus was alive.
Also, the reason why Christians do not follow the laws in Leviticus and Deuteronomy is because Christians believe that Jesus nullified these rules once he sacrificed himself. Of course, it can be argued that by not rejecting all the rules in Deuteronomy and Leviticus that person does not believe Jesus is his/her savior, but I digress. It can be argued that the Leviticus 18:22 can be seen as a translation error, among other things. You have to remember that the Bible is a Hebrew text, and it wasn’t translated into English until hundreds of years later.
if you care for further reading on the correct translation of Leviticus 18:22, please visit this page. The Hebrew and Christian Bible (as well as any other religious text!) are very dense pieces of work and should not be subjected to criticisms based on misunderstood or paraphrased verses.
