Look at what the fuck we got in the mail this morning. Less than a month away until the dopest cookbook ever drops.
Preorder your copy now or get left behind this fall.
Don’t buy this book! This blog is run by corny white people pretending to be black by awkwardly inserting “motherfuckin” and “shit” in their recipes.
Read Thug Kitchen: A Recipe in Blackface for a breakdown of their shenanigans, including the racist commercial they released to promote this racist book under their racist brand.
If you want an actual “thug” perspective on food that’s not a total mockery and actually stands for something, consider The Hood Health Handbook, written by actual black people who actually give a fuck instead of exploiting black culture for $$$.
With all the heat Anita Sarkeesian gets for her Tropes series, you’d think it was a new topic, but Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert had a discussion on a similar theme when they were talking about the influx of slasher movies on their show in 1980.
34 years later and this is STILL relevant

Smirk a little
Look him in the eye, look at his junk, and giggle.
Don’t giggle. Men like giggling.
A lot of women resort to giggling while attempting to insult a man out of instinct.
If a man is trying to creep you out and you want to hurt him, fuck off with the giggle. No need to soften the blow. No need to make it cute. If you want to laugh, laugh. Laugh a big, rude, viking’s laugh.
You should really pay attention. You might learn something.

Are you familiar with the upcoming Disney animation, Big Hero 6? I'm not acquainted with the original Marvel comics, but from what I saw from the trailers so far it seems pretty decent on its representation of japanese american characters (except maybe the overused genius asian sterotype). I have high hopes for this movie, but I'm also prepared for a possible disappointment. What are your thoughts on the movie?
Fred Zilla was originally supposed to be of Ainu descent.
This is Fred in the comics:
And this is how Fred looks now:
Wasabi no Ginger was originally supposed to be Japanese (not necessarily stated from what I’ve searched but it appears to be quite obvious that he is).
This is how he looked in the comics:
And this is how he looks now:
(And yes this is wrong because you just can’t go around erasing POC with other POC.)
This is how Honey Lemon looked in the comics:
Her real name btw, is Miyazaki Aiko and her hair isn’t even naturally blonde.
And oh look, here’s Rapunzel:
So that’s 3 out of the 5 original Asian characters that pretty much got erased which leaves Hiro and Gogo Tomago (sorry but I’m gonna ignore Tadashi as a main character).
Hiro is Japanese and white and Gogo Tomago is Japanese and what makes them look soooo different from each other? Hiro has wide eyes and Gogo Tomago has slanted ones. Like no really. THAT’S how they let you know he was also white. Because he has big eyes.
And the thing to top it all off is that the city is named San Fransokyo. San Fransokyo? Really? Like they really couldn’t just let Asian Americans be, you know, Asian and American. At the same time. Because apparently that doesn’t exist. They had to “other” the city in order to make sense of it all, and that’s some bullshit right there.
I understand if you’re Asian American, that this is in some ways something really big because it’s like blatant representation of us (and not super vague like with Russell in UP) but at the same time, it’s still pretty shitty. This is not to say absolutely don’t watch it, but take this movie more as a small stepping stone to more (and hopefully better) representation of us rather than a huge leap towards something greater.
Now remember people, National Coming Out Day is on its way. If you “come out” on facebook as straight and/or cis, an ally, a brony, a fucking whovian, or anything other than a marginalized sexual orientation and/or gender identity, I will ram my boot so far up your ass you’ll be tasting Vans for weeks.
The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family. That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.
The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.
