Episode 16: Getting Esoteric

“Maybe this will make sense when we play it back?” – Amy


The answer was no. It still didn’t make sense.

Welcome to Episode 16!

Here’s Kid Cudi’s statement about depression:

“My anxiety and depression have ruled my life for as long as I can remember and I never leave the house because of it,” the rapper wrote on Facebook. “I can’t make new friends because of it. I [don’t] trust anyone because of it and [I’m] tired of being held back in my life. I deserve to have peace. I deserve to be happy and smiling.”

Here are our texts from the Brazilian Steakhouse:

SIXTY SEVEN PERCENT. Sixty. Seven. Percent. The Invisible Majority.

67% of American women are plus size, and yet they make up less than 2% of the images we see.

Please go here and read about this amazing step forward.

Refinery 29 says:

Beginning today, we are breaking the plus-size woman out of the niche and into the mainstream. During the launch week, 67% of the bodies you see on our site, in our newsletter, and on our Instagram and Snapchat channels will be plus-size. To do this, we’ve made significant changes within Refinery29 to fully represent the 67% this week, and beyond. For the last six months, we’ve been shooting stock photography and redesigning illustrations to more accurately reflect the women who make up the majority of our country. And we’re partnering with Getty Images to make this collection available to other outlets that wish to join us in closing the representation gap.
Making this change, even on one website, wasn’t easy. Not only have we faced practical challenges, but we’ve had to reckon with deeper issues of bias and prejudice along the way. Effecting real and lasting change on a grand scale will require collaboration with more websites, media outlets, and, of course, you. As an audience, your power is significant and undeniable, and we can’t go anywhere if you’re not along for the ride. So if this is the kind of change you’d like to see, start by looking at the images before you. The first step is simple: See the 67%. The next steps, we’ll take together. Who’s with us?

The fatphobic disaster of the week is DONALD FUCKING TRUMP who has a long history of misogyny, racism, homophobia and all-around-douchery.
By now we all know the stories of Alicia Machado and the Access Hollywood/Billy Bush situations.
Donald Trump is bad for America and needs to get out of my fucking face.

We mourn the loss of Alfred Olango. This is complicated and sad; the videos show the officer fired four times at close range almost immediately after Alfred Olango, 38, suddenly raised both hands to chest level and took what was described as a shooting stance.
feminism
Kim Kardashian is a fucking human being, and people were AWFUL when she was robbed at gunpoint.
We have thrown plenty of shade on the whole Kardashian clan, but she doesn’t deserve to be held at gunpoint. And the victim blaming that is happening? We’re not okay with it.
This is chow chow, and this was the robber asked my mom for help finding when her wallet was stolen.

Amy has two recommendations! Go see these movies. And when you’re not doing that, please listen to Solange’s new album.
