Pay Up, Dude

People are apparently concerned about the proximity between¬†Harvey Rapist Weinstein¬†and Democratic donors. Dude can’t use his fundraising capacity and history (coughcoughHRCcoughcough) as any kind of credibility for anything. But. Dude can pay the F up. He can pay and pay and pay and pay. He can pay to improve economic justice. He can pay to expand health care services for women. He can pay to end gerrymandering. He can pay to elect lefty women to office.

Can he pay to get more women of color into executive and starring roles in film and TV? Without raping or attempting to rape them? Without their sexuality being any part of their professional, creative contributions to works of art? Yes. He can.

He can pay and pay and pay. And pay. He can’t pay enough. Let him pay.

Let’s also maybe jail him too. Thanks.

My Review of The Martian

Science and American ingenuity win the day!

But. In the future, can’t we put the people of color IN SPACE and make the white people solve all the science on the ground?

Science fiction’s purpose, quantified:

68%: Imagining a better world*
15%: Boobs
5%: Guns
5%: Spaceships
7%: Boobs with guns on spaceships

Crunch the numbers, Hollywood. Put Donald Glover on it.

*Including dystopias, as the negative space of a better world we could build if we considered the consequences of our current shenanigans. Like putting only white people in space.
