Some seriously scary stuff happened this past week. We just wish we could take it seriously. We discuss the University of Michigan's $500,000 grant to study male students committing microaggressions before turning to the Big Death on Arrow to ask if internet outrage is statistically relevant.
“How ‘divisive’ Laurel is as a character on Twitter, that’s not a factor,” Guggenheim said. “Truth be told, also, Twitter is a very specific sub-segment. The number of people who don’t like Laurel is probably an infinitesimally small group, so it’s not, as they say, statistically relevant.”
GLAMOUR: “If you were writing some Game of Thrones fan fiction, what story line would you like to see unfold?”
EC: “I want to see Daenerys and her three dragons share the throne. Eat goat they’ve barbecued. And bring back all the pretty boys, get them to take their trousers down, and be like, ‘I’m now the queen of everything! I’d like close-ups of all the boys’ penises, please.'”
“But I also feel like we should stop calling feminists “feminists” and just start calling people who aren’t feminist “sexist” – and then everyone else is just a human. You are either a normal person or a sexist. People get a label when they’re bad. Because it works the other way, as well. A lot of men have it hard too.”
