Weekly Awesome 5.1

May 1, 2013

(I don’t necessarily think ALL men need to be eaten. But I will, by default, reblog anything Jurassic Park ever.)

~TIAW on Tumblr and Pinterest.
~Where Louis CK gets me to want to marry him. (There is NOTHING hotter than a man who GETS it.)
~This is my new favorite website. Cervices! All the cervices! Goes well with 007 Breasts.
~This one keeps being shared on SOAM and TIAW Facebook walls and for good reason. It’s a beautifully written story of stretch marks.
~Seriously. I cannot WAIT for this next generation of strong, intelligent women and men to be in charge. Like this girl for example. Make her president right now!
~This has been a particularly awesome Awesome, but this is my favorite article. Things no one will tell fat girls.

    Louis CK also tweeted about Sarah Palin having a “retard making c*nt”. I don’t even like Sarah Palin but I would very much hesitate to call him a feminist ally. Very disappointed in your endorsement of him as a longtime reader. :-(

    Well. I am definitely not a big follower of his. I have seen a few things he’s said and I’ve liked them. I’ve generally heard him spoken of with respect, and this particular clip was really amazing to hear in the current rape-apologist/rape-jokes-are-funny-you-women-need-to-get-a-sense-of-humor atmosphere that we are generally having to shuffle through right now, culturally. Since I don’t follow him too closely, I’d never heard of such a comment and I’m having a hard time putting it together with the clip linked to here. How odd that he would say both things. How disappointing.

    Interestingly, I find far greater fault with the word “retard” than I do with cunt. 😉

    Oh I agree. I only asterisked it because most comment fields will censor it. I have no problem with the word cunt. Retard though, I do. My son has Down syndrome. He is very loved. My husband used to be a huge fan of Louis CK until our son was born and we found out about this. Sadly he is not the only celebrity to make derogatory remarks about individuals with intellectual disabilities. Margaret Cho is another one of our previously beloved celebrities who has made insensitive remarks. Ableism in our society is alive and well!

    Really? Margaret Cho, too? WTF? That gives me a sad.
