Tuesday Reading



“Liberal” ≠ Get-Out-of-Everything-Free-Card
by Heina Dadabhoy
Radical liberal movements getting defensive about people of color’s specific concerns? It’s more common than you think. On the more recent end, it happened with Occupy Wall Street, and it happened with Slutwalk. And here we are. It is happening again, right before our eyes, with Bernie Sanders.

Cosplay Corner: Bishop Cosplay
by Carrie McClain
My name is Harry. I am from Maryland. As far as what I do, I am a Research Program Analyst with the government. In my spare time, I enjoy comics and gaming. Gaming-wise right now, I am deep into The Witcher 3, still trying to get into Batman: Arkham Knight (I think it’s overrated) and running through my 4th season of FIFA 15. That reminds me, I am a big footy fan. My favorite teams are Manchester United and DC United.

‘Indiana Jones And The Temple of Doom': Childhood Is the Pits
by Brigit McCone
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is the coolest kids’ movie ever made about severe child abuse. Just as Roald Dahl’s Matilda does for daughters and mothers, so The Temple of Doom affirms that the good father must empower his son, and defends the child’s right to reject and resist abusive behavior. Critics who strive to dismiss the film as the original trilogy’s “weakest” often snark about the allegedly annoying chirpiness of Ke Huy Quan’s heartfelt performance. I suspect they are actually uncomfortable that Spielberg’s film narratively centers Short Round as its protagonist, while casually assuming that an adult audience identify with him. From his hero-worship of Indy to his glee at the film’s thrill rides, Short Round’s emotional responses cue our own, including an assumed desire to break up kissing couples and see squealing girls get giant millipedes down the back of their necks.

How To Be A Good Ally To Sexual Assault Survivors
by Jasbina Misir
What I really need you to understand right now is that I know what is best for me.  Every survivor knows their own experience very deeply, and every survivor is the expert on how they need to heal. You don’t get to tell a survivor that they are handling their assault in the wrong way; that is absolutely not up to you.

Beyond "Cuckservative": The Right-wing's Racial Castration Anxieties and President Obama's "BBC'"
by Chauncey DeVega
Humans are social beings. Humans invented politics in order to manage conflict and decide how resources should be distributed in society. It is almost inevitable then that politics would become a stage on to which we project some of the most basic — and base — parts of the self.
