Break The Franchise

That's not an ass. It's a space station
Kim Kardashian – Break The Franchise

It may be redundant, as Lucas managed to fairly authoritatively break Star Wars with his prequels, episodes I – III, let’s give Kim Kardashian and her ass a shot at it.

That’s no moon. It’s a space station.

Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi
Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope

Just because the celebutante couldn’t seem to manage to break the internet doesn’t mean she can’t break an already fractured franchise. ;-)

Why Relationships Work

Posted in Society on April 16th, 2014

 

Kirsten Dunst

Actress Kirsten Dunst spoke her mind about femininity, masculinity, and relations earlier this week in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK.

I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued. We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking – it’s a valuable thing my mum created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armour. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work…

Of course, various and sundry Feminists instantly jumped up to savage her for such an “anti-Feminist” opinion.

The most telling rejoinder to Dunst’s statement of opinion came from Jezebel. Their response was entitled “Kirsten Dunst Thinks Ladies In Relationships Should Wife the Fuck Out.” It’s particularly telling because the title uses “wife” as a tacit pejorative and this aptly and poetically sums up Feminism’s position on relationships.

Feminism’s Gag Orders

Jezebel’s response was just the most overtly telling though. All the various screeds against Kirsten Dunst’s opinions have two things in common: the underlying postulate of relationships being predicated upon a power dynamic that is strictly hierarchical; and the strong desire to gag any woman who doesn’t accept that Feminist postulate.

You’ve Got To Love Fish

Posted in Politics, Society, The Environment on December 6th, 2013

Really! You’ve got to love fish. Hopefully you also love fishing because it’s one of life’s better entertainments.

You’ve Got To Love Fish

Well here are six women, all celebrities, who love fish enough to get naked with them in order to draw attention to the sad fact that we’re not practicing anything remotely close to what could be called intelligent and sustainable fishing practices and, resultantly, we’re crashing fish populations.

This is a world apart from- and at least an order of magnitude better than PETA’s stupid attempt to manipulate children with their Sea Kittens campaign atrocity. Then Fish Love is a practical and pragmatic group of activists whereas PETA is a cult of pseudo-religious fanatics so this is to be expected.

The British environmental activist group, Fishlove was set up in 2009 by Nicholas Röhl, co-owner of the Japanese restaurant MOSHIMO, and actress Greta Scacchi to raise awareness of the unsustainable fishing practices that are destroying the the earth’s marine ecosystem and threatening local economies across the globe.

Yes, it’s true that Fish Love, like all activists, bases their actions on the worst-case scenario and probably overplays the immediacy of the threat to both marine ecosystems and local economies. That doesn’t, however, mean that they’re in any way shape or form wrong in slightest about the threat itself.

If nothing else, and to expand upon Fish Love’s theme, we don’t want this to come to an end, now do we?

So we really need to fish more responsibly if we want to continue fishing in the future.
