So I just got back from seeing Guardians of the Galaxy and I’d love to know who thought it was funny to have a main character we’re supposed to root for call Zoe Saldana’s character a whore in service of a cliched joke. Lazy writing’s bad enough but can’t we try and avoid having it be misogynistic as well.
How are there so many bad teachers out there
I thought my brother having a teacher who made children swim in their underwear because they forgot togs was bad enough but apparently not. I just found out that last year my brothers teacher told him he was a waste of space in front of the entire class for leaving a book at home. Jesus. Why go into and stay in teaching if you cant refrain from traumatising children. How could anyone think that was an okay comment to make. I haven’t been this angry in a while
I was gonna write a big thing but then realised I didn’t actually have much to say beyond the fact that I find it really interesting that at the moment there is so much TV dealing explicitly with death, grief, religion and the ways they intersect. Les Revenants (my favourite show that I watched last year. Also called The Returned - seriously go watch it! - it’s super engrossing and not depressing like that description made it sound) and its future American remake, Resurrection, The Leftovers and even The Walking Dead all deal with the ways people cope with grief. Anyway I wonder why all of a sudden there are so many people writing about this now.
