    "I've believed in God my whole life. But now I'm about to break...I'm wondering, has God forgotten me?" - Marianna

    In my former role as the social justice coordinator for a secular humanist organization, one of the many aims of the position included connecting humanist communities with trans communities and generally increasing awareness regarding trans issues (via trans-centered initiatives, outreach, legal policy matters, etc.). I been had trans friends, but that specific work fortunately allowed me to link up with…

    There's entirely too much sociohistorical baggage rooted in the patriarchal oppression of women surrounding the idea that "women are crazy" to parse it all here, but what can be said is that it's virtually always bullshit for men to dismiss the behavior of women as simply being "crazy."

    Many view Liu Sanlian as crazy. She isn't, of course. Despite her "madness" being well-meaning (albeit a bit overbearing), justifiable, and even righteous, her passion for doing what she believes is best…

    Flirting Scholar feels as if it's both the definition and pinnacle of madcap comedy.

    As far as I'm concerned, Stephen Chow is the undisputed king of kung fu comedies. Fans of Chow's hilarious mainstream films Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer will likely get a kick out of the kung fu hijinks in Flirting Scholar.

    All of the performances are great, but Stephen Chow and Cheng Pei-Pei are the standouts given their outstanding comedic and kung fu prowesses. My super…

    Idk, man...I legit don't know what I just saw. πŸ˜³πŸ˜†πŸ˜’

    I'm jealous that so many people are able to enjoy this. For me, though, Titane's particular blend of batshit, bizarre, and bewildering elements didn't resonate with me.

    At no point was I bored, but there were moments of exasperation. I don't think it's "bad," but I was glad when it was finally over.

    I don't hate it. I feel...nothing. I'm utterly indifferent. This wasn't for me. And my indifference is to the point that I don't even care enough to attempt to articulate why it didn't work for me.

    Firestarter is a decent sci-fi horror flick that leaves more of a positive impression on me than the mediocre original. Yeah, I said it! πŸ”₯

    Solidly acted. It admittedly skimps too much on character development and story depth, but it gets the job done. I really dug the score. I generally appreciate all of the tweaks and modernizing reinterpretations made to the original narrative that allows this to truly be its own distinct thing.

    Among other things, I'm happy that…
