We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry

The whole article sadly hits very close to home.

I’ve had exactly one male friend not be a total defensive shithead when I’ve talked about this stuff.

Tony Goldwyn - Now With Alex Wagner MSNBC 

Reblogging for later

Great interview w/o mentioning Scandal…how refreshing! Tony is so comfortable giving interviews and his passion is infectious! One of the busiest director/executive director in Hollywood!

I was halfway through “Never Forget” when it finally dawned on me that what makes The Divide great is the timelessness of its premise. The Divide could be in any time period, really. The relationship and banter between Rosa and Rylance has a His Girl Friday quality to it (that 1940s classic also has a plot involving a man on death row). Meanwhile, Adam’s quest for justice and a little redemption harkens back to the social activist films of the ’60s and ’70s. But what really gets me excited are the elements of film noir episode 4 introduces; the only things missing are rampant cigarette smoke and black-and-white cinematography (I really love film noir, in case you can’t tell). Much more mystery is introduced here, and we finally get confirmation that this city is full of hidden secrets lurking in the shadows that even those at a higher level don’t know about.
It’s qualities like these that make for great television. The Divide is on its way.
