Jon Stewart Goes After Fox in Powerful Ferguson Monologue
I been waiting for the daily show to come back so they could cover this
Jon rip them boys a new asshole
I both love and hate the fact that I trust a comedian to report the truth more than I trust actual journalists.
SO SHE’S ONE OF LOKI’S WIVES BUT IT’S REALLY MORE ACCURATE TO REFER TO LOKI AS ONE OF ANGRBODA’S HUSBANDS
BECAUSE REASONS ALL RIGHT
AND ANYWAY SHE IS ACTUALLY INTIMIDATING AS HELL AND MILDLY TERRIFYING BUT SUCK IT UP AND TALK TO HER BECAUSE SHE WILL KICK YOUR ASS INTO GEAR
SHE LIKES OFFERINGS OF ENERGY AND SHIT
LIKE IF YOU DANCE IN HER HONOR OR SOMETHING
OR EXERCISE I DON’T KNOW WHO EXERCISES NOT ME
BUT ALSO DEEDS AND PROMISES ARE PRETTY FUCKING COOL WITH HER
BUT DO NOT FUCKING BREAK YOUR PROMISES TO THE WOLFMOTHER
SHE WILL FUCK YOU THE HELL UP
AND HEY IF YOU’RE BAD AT MEDITATING AND YOUR GOD-RADIO IS BADLY TUNED SHE’LL JUST TAKE OVER YOUR MOTHERFUCKING DREAM
BECAUSE LET’S BE REAL THE HAGIA OF THE IRONWOOD IS PROBABLY MORE BADASS THAN YOUR DREAM ABOUT SWING DANCING
ALSO WHEN SHE’S CALLED THE HAG THAT WORD PROBABLY DOES NOT MEAN WHAT YOU THINK IT MEANS
SHE’S NOT UGLY OR GNARLY LIKE THAT MAKES HER SOUND IN ENGLISH ALTHOUGH YOU MAY NOT NOTICE HER ATTRACTIVENESS BECAUSE OF THAT WHOLE THING WHERE SHE’S INTIMIDATING THE FUCKBALLS OUT OF YOU
IT ACTUALLY JUST MEANS SHE’S A SUPER FUCKING POWERFUL WITCH SO WATCH THE FUCK OUT
ANGRBODA RULES THE GODDAMN IRONWOOD AND IF ANYONE SAYS DIFFERENT THEY ARE PROBABLY WRONG
SHE ALSO GAVE BIRTH TO ALL THE CHILDREN OF LOKI THAT THE AESIR DISLIKE MOST
FENRIR THE GIANT WOLF (ALSO BADASS)
HEL THE RULER OF THE DEAD (HALF DEAD HERSELF SO CLEARLY AWESOME)
AND JORMUNGAND THE GIANT FUCKING SERPENT THAT GOES ALL THE WAY AROUND THE WORLD
SO BASICALLY EVERYTHING SHE TOUCHES BECOMES COOL AS FUCK BUT NOT AS COOL AS HER
Male fantasies, male fantasies, is everything run by male fantasies? Up on a pedestal or down on your knees, it’s all a male fantasy: that you’re strong enough to take what they dish out, or else too weak to do anything about it. Even pretending you aren’t catering to male fantasies is a male fantasy: pretending you’re unseen, pretending you have a life of your own, that you can wash your feet and comb your hair unconscious of the ever-present watcher peering through the keyhole, peering through the keyhole in your own head, if nowhere else. You are a woman with a man inside watching a woman. You are your own voyeur.
Margaret Atwood, The Robber Bride
I follow Margaret Atwood on twitter because she interacts with really funny nature accounts (she’ll rt something like @DucksIncorporated or @Birdwatchersunited and the tweet will be like, “The beautiful spring feathers of the meadowlark.”) Anyway. It’s easy to forget that she’s also a very dank writer.
You are a woman with a man inside watching a woman.
This line, oof.
Been spending a lot of time lately trying to untangle how a lifetime of patriarchy has fucked up my own sexual agency. Nothing like getting derailed inside your own head by worries of how you look in the moment, whether you measure up to some external standard…
Wow this just took the thought trains I’ve had going round my head in the last few months amd blew them off their tracks.
"You are a woman with a man inside watching a woman. "
Patriarchy summed up in a sentence. Well played, Ms. Atwood.
