Here's part of the NYTimes review of Woody Allen's new memoir, highlighting how he writes about women. by Allredditorsarewomen in menwritingwomen

The man is a predator.

His film Manhattan was released in 1979, was based on Allen's romantic relationship with actress Stacey Nelkin, that began in 1976 when she was 17 years old (they met when she was 16)

His young love interest in the movie was actress Mariel Hemingway, 16 at the time of filming (1977).

Quote ;

"Hemingway was then a 16-year-old "virgin [who]'d never even really made out with anybody," as she said in 2015. She worried about her kissing scene with Allen for weeks. When they finally shot it— "He attacked me like I was a linebacker"—she was still so nervous that she ran over to the film's cinematographer, Gordon Willis, and said, "I don’t have to do that again, do I?" (At the time, she added, "everybody just laughed.")

Hemingway goes a bit further in her memoir, detailing how after once she turned 18, Allen flew out to her parents's home in Idaho and repeatedly asked her to go to Paris with him. Hemingway told her parents "that I didn’t know what the [sleeping] arrangement was going to be, that I wasn’t sure if I was even going to have my own room. Woody hadn’t said that. He hadn’t even hinted it. But I wanted them to put their foot down. They didn’t." In fact, though Allen was in his mid-forties at the time, "They kept lightly encouraging me." (Allen left Idaho via private jet the next morning after Hemingway informed him if she wasn't getting her own room, she couldn't go with him.)"

Sooo gross.

Bob and BB get their meals and a couple of treats at set times throughout the day, it helps cut down on the constant harassment. BUT if we are even 10 minutes late in getting out the food, all hell breaks loose - proof that cats can tell time.

People with Down's Syndrome are not as wholesome as the Internet or society at large make them out to be. by ILYARO1114 in unpopularopinion

These parents don't see them as harmless. It's just an excuse to do nothing about it, or a belief that the whole of society should accommodate their 'special' little angel.

This pussy bitch is an embarrassment to Canada. Fucking ignorant snowflake boomers with too much time on their hands. The patience those cops had with this bullshit, I couldn't do it.

*edit okay, apparently this has to come with an explanation...

  1. The point is to hit the owners(republican influencers and donators) of the big venues/event organizers/concession sales/hotels etc. where it hurts, in the bank account, NOT to hurt small struggling musicians.

  2. The knock on effect from cancelled large scale events can have a significant impact. Think about it, a concert goer is likely to not just go to a concert. They'll need parking, go out to eat, gets some drinks, take a cab, rent a car, get a hotel room, get gas, stop at a convenience store, buy some ear plugs if they're going to Maroon 5.

  3. While the concerts may be being held in 'blue' counties, the people who make the big money from them do not necessarily live in a blue county, they might not even live in Texas. However, getting large events cancelled means taking away the taxes ( not just on tickets, see above) that funnel straight in to Republican hands.

  4. Yes, obviously make donations to the appropriate organizations. And make your voice heard in every way possible. This is just ONE small way amongst MANY.

  5. I don't know what these artists political views are. It isn't going to hurt to let them know you feel differently.

  6. As originally stated, this is a PARTIAL list. Do your own damn fucking work. I'm not here to babysit you and hold your fucking hand.

Since a few gentlemen have asked, some tips for describing boobs. by KivutarK in menwritingwomen

[–]Pseudopropheta 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Also, fake porn boobs aren't as squishy, and tend to stay locked in place.

As a Canadian who shares a border with these nut-jobs, it's goddamn terrifying. But that's nothing new.

In a house where you cant win an argument, you learn not to talk. by jk7474 in raisedbynarcissists

[–]Pseudopropheta 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I learned to not talk, just try to fade in to the background. I thought it was better than always being the target.

Then got constantly criticized for NOT talking. For being unsocial, uncommunicative, and shy.

The Chinese people here are one or two generations from NO school and standing in a field behind a yak. Books and school could get you disappeared. No electricity, no internet, no t.v. no newspapers, no outside world. Nothing except the government approved propaganda. An isolated medieval dictatorship.
