Sokath, his eyes opened!

destronomics:

The Skyler White EffectThe cognitive dissonance that happens when a female character is presented by the narrative as absolutely correct in their judgment of a male character, and yet the viewers assume she’s the bitch.

I always wondered if this is because at the beginning of the show she’s presented as kind of a harpy: the nagging, irritable wife who emasculates her husband, thus explaining why Walter became “addicted” to crime as it gave him back the power he lacked in his civilian existence. I get that, but the impression on the viewers persisted long after Walter transformed into Heisenberg and Skylar became his victim. It was a mistake to paint her that way, even if it made sense story-wise. One would hope that moving forward writers stop leaning on women in this fashion, because it’s a lazy trope that limits what you can do with those female characters as the story develops.
(However, can we agree that Betty Draper is a bitch? Like, I felt sorry for her at first because Don treated her like crap but all she’s done since her divorce from him and remarriage to Henry is take out her frustrations on emotionally abuse her kids and it’s just maddening. Why? Because we need to like Don more? We should like him because he’s a complex character with a good and a bad side, not because you created a scapegoat to contrast him against. Sigh.)

ITS BACK

OH MY GOD

I… disapprove of this, for its sheer bitchiness. Don’t ridicule due to ignorance, ridicule due to unwillingness to learn. She asked questions repeatedly, and you shot her down repeatedly for a joke. THIS IS WHY SMART PEOPLE ARE LABELLED “ASSHOLES.”

And I’d say “this is why people say women have no sense of humor/aren’t funny.” Because in her shoes, I would have just said “Well, please tell Lord ____ that Lady ____ requests the please of m’lords company because [MESSAGE] and if he is currently indisposed then she shall take her pleasure with Lord _____ instead.” Or something like that. But that’s just me, I have come to accept that I am not like other women at all.

As for the intellectualism in this… well, to be fair, it could be said she started it when she “corrected” his use of the term “vidya game,” even though it was clear he knew how to spell the term “video game” from his use of such at the beginning of the conversation. When you poke at someone’s grammar or word usage online, you open the door for them to poke at yours.

Whether he started it by calling her “handicapped,” well, depends on whether his name is Tobias. It could be. We don’t know.

Honestly, if she doesn’t speak to Paul anymore, I think it’s better for all parties involved.

Considering I’ve gone there for treatment as a kid this is going to be doubly creepy…

Another comic I started last night. This one is basically about what it was like being African American in high school, minus the supernatural transformation at the end.

This is awesome.
