I'm pretty terrific.
@Clarence Rosario DAMN YOU FOR BEATING ME TO A "THE BOUNCERS AT FINNBAR ARE ASSHOLES"-TYPE JOKE
@shalalas Conflating a dislike of KK and her ilk with a dislike of women or of women's sexuality or expression thereof. It's the laziest form of thinking and not worthy of inclusion in a first draft of an undergrad paper, not to mention on The Awl.
@alicesherman Your last sentence is perfect. That's exactly how I feel.
I have exactly no fucks to give about Vogue as a pedestal (Blake Lively has been on their cover two times too many for Vogue to be a paragon of exclusivity). I take issue with KK being on the cover of Vogue, W, et al because she deserves exactly 0% of anyone's attention.
I know April isn't usually the time for resolutions, but if The Awl would resolve to stop publishing bullshit like "She seems really funny, and fun, and I think she knows exactly what she's doing at all times, and that often the arguments I hear people make about her are tied up in their overall feelings about women—that she's stupid, or trashy, or whatever word they prefer meaning "too sexually available"—all subtext for a grown woman who does whatever she wants, who likes her body, who spends lots of time and energy looking a certain way and is happy with what she sees in the mirror" in the new year, that would be great. Thanks!

I mean, I have tickets to tomorrow night's screening, but Showgirls is not a good movie. Let's not even.
@deepomega Sundance Channel's Rectify does mystery, existential angst, Southern Gothic, et al. 1000,000X better
@deepomega Overrated or the most overrated?
I mean, it was fine. But EVERY WHITE DUDE LOVED IT MORE THAN LIFE ITSELF.
You're always pulling out pigtails and pushing us into the sandbox because you looooooove us and want to have our babies
Tell me you have a publishing deal.
