“How Rom-Coms Undermine Women” by Megan Garber for The Atlantic
The common knock against rom-coms—besides their being too often glibly hetero-normative and horrendously lacking in diversity and ironically ambivalent about the women who generally watch them—is that they are fantasies, in the worst way as well as the best. The other complaint you can make about them, though, and one that seems especially apt at the current moment, is that rom-coms, on top of everything else, have a troubling tendency to blur the line between romantic exertion and sexual violence.
FACT OF THE WEEK
A conversation starter to help you make new friends or impress the ones you already have
It’s okay to never wash your office coffee mug! According to recent report by the Wall Street Journal, it’s fine to never wash your mug, as long as you’re not sharing it with anybody else and not leaving cream and sugar at the bottom of it (which can cause mold to grow).
