My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.
And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie."
We should come up with a word for person with a vagina and person with a penis so that people could tell doctors what their body shape for medical reasons without having to assign a gender to their body
The problem there is that the term inevitably falls into use as a synonym for ‘man’ or ‘woman’. Which is why we have awkward terms like “male-bodied” and “female-bodied” that fall in and out of favour with various subgroups.
Isn’t English the perfect language to make new words? Like you guys always add a word after another word and then, bam, it’s a whole new concept? So, words like vagina-having or penis-having should work, right? Or another combination, I don’t know, I need a native English speaker here.
In Chile, military forces took control of the country away from Salvador Allende, turning it from a country that had nothing to eat to a country that had no freedom.
"From its beginning, the new military government implemented harsh measures against its perceived opponents. Various reports and investigations claim that between 1,200 and 3,200 people were killed, up to 80,000 people were interned and as many as 30,000 were tortured during the time Pinochet was in government.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augusto_Pinochet)
