Feminists Hate Shailene Woodley Now

 

The best way for a large group of people to attack you on the Internet is to state an opinion publicly then sit back and wait. Well, Shailene Woodley didn't have to wait long after her interview with Time where she stated she doesn't consider herself a feminist. Lots of people on the Internet right now with toxic shock syndrome.

TIME: You’ve talked about before—with Divergent specifically, too—about being conscious of the kind of messages that you’re sending to young female fans when you’re taking on roles. Do you consider yourself a feminist?

Shailene Woodley: No because I love men, and I think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out because you need balance. With myself, I’m very in touch with my masculine side. And I’m 50 percent feminine and 50 percent masculine, same as I think a lot of us are. And I think that is important to note. And also I think that if men went down and women rose to power, that wouldn’t work either.. We have to have a fine balance. My biggest thing is really sisterhood more than feminism. I don’t know how we as women expect men to respect us because we don’t even seem to respect each other. There’s so much jealousy, so much comparison and envy. And “This girl did this to me and that girl did that to me.” And it’s just so silly and heartbreaking in a way. It’s really neat to see: there’s that new Judd Apatow [sic] movie coming out, The Other Woman, and that looks really good because I think it’s really neat that it shows women coming together and supporting each other and creating a sisterhood of support for one another versus hating each other for something that somebody else created.

TIME: So even though what they’re coming together for is to bring down a man…

SW: Yeah, but they create a sisterhood. And he did something wrong, and they’re, you know. They’re going to go after him for it. I think it’s great.

*clears throat* I'm not going to get into the myth of the "sisterhood", but let me preface this by saying that I was raised by a single mother because my father was a raging cokehead who was too busy being Johnny Semenseed all over the contiguous United States and Germany (lots of German women supported our troops) to ever be an actual father. In fact, almost every strong, influence in my life has been a woman, and I lived in fear of my grandmother even after I graduated high school, because as it turns out, 4'11" Native American women who have been working on a farm since they were 6 have no time for your bullshit. And if you look through history and even today, when you remove women from the equation, whether it be religion, the Boy Scouts, fraternities, our your life in general, things eventually go horribly wrong and the only thing that's needed to course correct the inevitable sad, freakshow is for a woman to come in and say, "Look, go have a seat while I figure this shit out". The world needs women just as much as men, and if you want to add in the biological and nurturing aspect, women are even more important. That being said, if feminists could suck dick the way they suck the fun out of everything, then maybe their message would be better received. Attacking a woman who doesn't agree with feminism is, uh, a bit off message, don't you think? Not everybody with a vagina is down for the cause, and whatever circumstances in your life brought you to embrace and accept feminism might not have happened to the woman next to you. So chill. We can talk the patriarchy all you want, but I'm pretty sure Oprah or Beyonce don't spend a lot of their time thinking about it. They realized their own self-worth and power at an early age, and now they got shit handle. If an image in a magazine or an insecure comment by a fool with a dick can make you question your value on this planet, then you're fighting two enemies, so slay the one in the mirror first. Most of the people complaning about Woodley seem to be focused on, "OMG SHE DOESN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT FEMINISM MEANS!" And maybe that's true, because the word you've adopted and the actual definition mean two completely different things. The definition of "feminism" is basically "humanism", but you've made it female-centric, so it confuses everybody who has more one thing to think about during their day. I love women, everybody should love women (another thing gay dudes get right), but as man, I'll never get a diamond as a prize for answering "yes" to a question. I'm never going to get into a club free before 10pm. And I'll never be able to marry a French billionaire when the patriarchy says I'm too old to effectively perform my job. So if you want to be mad at some 22-year old chick who is too young to realize that she'll never have life figured out and who probably doesn't even know a single Tori Amos song, feel free. But take a step back and understand why you're mad in the first place. Since you're a woman, I'm sure you'll let me know three months from now.

‘Gotham’ Has A TrailerBy toddMay 06, 2014

 

I guess FOX wanted their own Smallville (that shit ran for 10 years. TEN years), so here's the trailer for Gotham, which I'm told tells the backstory of Bruce Wayne before he becomes Batman. So basically, it's another show about rich, white people with problems. I'm glad FOX has decided to take a chance on such a controversial topic. Rich white people have been marginalized in the media for far too long, so it's good they are finally being represented here.

Here’s Kaley Cuoco in a bikini for Men’s Health because Wikipedia tells me that Kaley stars in The Big Bang Theory as a Cheesecake Factory employee, and I love cheesecake. And because unless Michael Jackson resurrects and dies again, it looks like it’s going to be a really fucking slow news day.

If you think going to college will make your kid smarter, it won’t. Radar Online reports:

A mob scene broke out at the University of Rhode Island Thursday, where Jersey Shore’s resident record spinner Pauly D was visiting a pal, as more than 1,000 students flocked to and surrounded the building the MTV star was in, within a matter of minutes. Students quickly crowded the building Pauly D – a native son of The Ocean State – was in, as word of his presence on campus went viral through Facebook. The stampede of students eventually caused police to be summoned for crowd control purposes, according to the school.

This dude looks like the Slim Jim guy and a villain from Lazy Town jerked off in some marinara sauce then it was placed in an unfertilized egg in a tanning bed to incubate. So yeah, this video makes sense.

Eva Longoria Is DiabolicalBy toddNovember 18, 2010

If details about Eva Longoria and Tony Parker‘s divorce seemed sketchy at first, then BOOM!, the hammer was dropped by an “exclusive” with Us Magazine the next day followed by someone “leaking” Erin Barry‘s name to the press, then don’t be alarmed. You aren’t confused. Eva Longoria just set Tony Parker up like a French bowling pin. Radar Online reports:

Eva Longoria didn’t just file for divorce against Tony Parker, she made sure to get revenge for his sexting relationship with another woman….When Desperate Housewives star Eva discovered the relationship and the texts her marriage blew up and she and Tony agreed to divorce. “But Eva was hurt and she wanted a little revenge,” the source revealed. “So she blindsided Tony with the divorce filing. “They were working out the details about who was going to file and when. They didn’t want it to become a messy divorce. Then Eva got a little revenge and didn’t tell Tony she was filing and dropped the papers on him, catching him off balance for the media blitz.” While some reports have said the texts between Tony and Erin were “innocent” that’s absolutely not true, RadarOnline.com learned. The texts were flirtatious and sexual and “crossed the line,” a source close to the situation revealed. Erin’s marriage to Brent is over, the source says, and while she and Parker traded sexual texts Parker insists their relationship never became physical. “Look, any wife is going to be upset with what Tony did, but he swears the relationship with Erin stopped there and they never had sex,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “And Parker also says the text messages ended months ago.” Even so, Eva and Tony agreed many weeks ago to divorce. “They were discussing how to proceed for a while,” the source said. “Suddenly, Eva not only filed the papers but then went public with Tony’s relationship with Erin. He was surprised, to say the least.” When one website mistakenly published that Tony filed divorce papers in Texas it was not simply a glaring error. Tony, in fact, had planned to file divorce papers in Texas, but then the plan changed. “He held off,” the source said. “It had been discussed but then abandoned. Next thing he knew she surprised him by filing on Wednesday.
