The Problem With Calling the Black Widow a Slut

You might have seen that Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner during a press junket responded to a question about Black Widow's romantic interests in Avengers: Age of Ultron (not saying who, SPOILERS, but it was brought up to them because in prior films it seemed like her interests were aimed at Captain America and Hawkeye) and both men joked that she's a slut, a whore, and she has a fake leg (which painted people with prosthetics as being something unattractive)....more

My Response to the Ad in the Washington Post Denying the Armenian Genocide

On Friday morning, I wrote a letter to the Washington Post’s advertising department in response to a full-page ad that appeared on the back of Thursday, April 23’s paper. The ad – which the New York Times rejected – is an open letter to President Obama from the Turkish American National Steering Committee that denies the Armenian genocide that occurred a century ago and killed an estimated 1.5 million Armenians. Two weeks ago Pope Francis recognized the events as “the first genocide of the 20th century.” The ad in the Post...more

Let's Hope It's True

I will actively work on Bernie Sanders' campaign if he decides he is going to run for president, as it's being reported or rumored.I doubt he would get the Democratic Party nomination--it's virtually a lock for Hillary Clinton at this point--but he would keep the party on track and honest.For that matter, he could keep the GOP honest, a tall order I know. Sanders is already in talks with potential staffers. And while he’s been in contact with Democratic activists across the country in recent months, lately the conversations have become less hypothetical and more about asking for commitments to support his candidacy, if he decides to run.Sanders has been relying on an informal network of friends and advisers as he considers a presidential run ....more
