BBC News - Icelandic girl Blaer wins right to use given name
Like Germany and Denmark, Iceland has rigid limitations about how a baby can be named. The names like Carolina and Christa, for example, are not allowed because the letter "c" is not part of Iceland's alphabet. Names cannot be unisex either.

Blaer's mother, Bjork Eidsdottir, has said that she had no idea that Blaer was not on the list of accepted female names when she gave it to her daughter.

The panel rejected the name because they said it was too masculine for a girl.

There are some 1,853 approved female names on the Icelandic Naming Committee's list.

The Velociraptor Diaries - FeatheredMenace - Fail_Fandomanon RPF [Archive of Our Own]
Third-favorite clutch-sib and I, inspired by vintage holovids, investigated mixing vodka, tequila, gin, and sake. Experiment a success, but side-effects dubious: clutch-sib suddenly decided wants to create "webcomic" using terrible "bundled software," make it super-meta about trolls, or us, or coming of age or the end of life or some deep themes like that, also include lots of classist stuff and (unclear, both quite drunk by then) either royalty or Marxist theory.

glvalentine: Ten Things You Should Know about "Snow White and the Hunstman"
So, Snow White and the Hunstman is kind of a mess and I have a lot of questions because I still feel like someone and their anxious production designer filmed a draft by accident?

Let's talk.

THIS IS HIGHLY DISTRESSING AND I AM SO THANKFUL SOMEONE WENT TO THIS MOVIE AND WROTE THIS SO I WOULD KNOW I SHOULD NOT GO SEE THIS MOVIE AT ALL.

Obsidian Wings: The Superhero Men Don't See: Evidence
Two parallel realities! Men who see nobody at all and women who see the next Faith (without the crazy, I mean). Don’t tell Disney, or they’ll be marketing the film as 4-D.

This is both fascinating and infuriating: a data compilation of critics who just Did Not See, Mis-Saw, or Barely-Noticed Black Widow in the movie, despite her being one of the characters with the most screen time and agency.

Seriously, I want to fuck shit up.

leupagus: (To Anyone Annoyed By A Woman: An Open Letter)
You can argue that Kardashian perpetuates a stereotype when she publicly obsesses over her appearance and you can certainly talk about how harmful Palin's rhetoric is to the national dialogue. But these things aren't annoying, they're legitimate problems. Calling these women "annoying" makes them into less than what they are -- good or bad -- and if you're merely annoyed by someone like Anne Coulter, you're really not paying attention.<br />
<br />
