    [–] 'Male privilege is...' typhonblue 1 points ago in MensRights

    And then the same people wonder why women's achievement isn't just less than men's, but less than women's forty years ago.

    [–] For everyone who's disatisfied with Joe's outcome... typhonblue 2 points ago in HaltAndCatchFire

    If they wanted to hint that Joe was going "back to his old ways" it would have ended with some sort of hint that that was going to happen as it did with Cam and Donna.

    Joe's innate nature was on display even in season one, if you look closely at the moments where he pauses. Full of regret, fear and horror.

    Reasonably, how long will it take Joe to find someone to build a family with?

    Of all the future outcomes this is the most likely. He is a well-off older man who hasn't gone to seed. He'll find someone in her late twenties/early thirties and they'll start a family. Cameron will keep bouncing around the country like Joe's mom did (I notice she didn't come to see him even after she was 'banished'--which isn't a legal reality, she could have come back.) As for a proper goodbye between them, Cameron obviously would have made that impossible. She'd just try to hover him back in and continue to string him along. The clean break with no forwarding address was necessary. And Joe saying "you were what gets to the thing"--you're the bullshit I needed to grow past--is a perfect goodbye to someone who would never give him a proper good bye.

    Go Joe!

    I think you saw a different show. Maybe you're thinking of Halt and catch mad men?

    Don't bother. People will see what they want to. Some want to see a predator. Still want to see a predator. Still will see a predator.

    Why? Who knows.

    Joe seems to have left this merry-go-around, but the question is for how long ...

    Considering that he's completely changed his approach, I would say for good. Even if he does get sucked in, I doubt it'll be in the same way.

    Existential crisis? Hardly. They just squandered everything they set up and turned something intelligent into something bland and mediocre. Well I suppose I'm having an existential crisis that the "creatives" in our society are all a bunch of religious ideologues with a black and white view of reality.

    We got to softball Cameron's consequences and blow some more sunshine up her ass. That's how you empower women. By inflating their egos and removing the connection between their actions and their effects. Yes'm.

    My husband says it's the story of the Buddha. His suffering was leading him to become a teacher.

    [–] SPOILER for Finale (Paste Magazine) typhonblue 2 points ago in HaltAndCatchFire

    I call her the praying mantis. At the start of her and Joe's "relationship" after the hurricane in "Landfall" she hovers over him like a predator. Not helped by the creative team's choice of pairing the visual of Cameron hunched like a raptor over joe with asynchronous creepy music.

    After I pointed that out a friend of mine got freaked out when he saw a woman who looks like Cameron at a bus stop.

    On second reading, what a pompous bunch of nothing that article is.

    I took another look at "Landfall." He's wearing the same outfit down to the watch.

    I've wondered how they manage to change the character's hair so quickly. Maybe they use wigs.

    [–] Mental Health Awareness Week and male tears. typhonblue 1 points ago in MensRights

    Personally I think it runs the risk of advocating for a position that, while closer to the men's rights position, is still informed by pseudoscience.

    [–] I (33/M) was sexually assaulted (on video) at a big gym then banned for no other reason than reporting it to management, what should I do? typhonblue 6 points ago in MensRights

    Despite all the organizations fighting on behalf of female rape victims to get them justice and help... we're still disadvantaged relative to men? Why? Because my brain is inferior to yours? Because I'm more vulnerable emotionally?
