I judge you because you can’t stop smoking. I think you’re weak. It hurts me personally because I want to spend the rest of my life with you and you’re endangering your life. I’m very angry with you and you don’t even realize it. I wish you were a better person for me.
“The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.”—
It’s no surprise that Seth MacFarlane would get up on stage at the Academy Awards and be a raging sexist - that’s kind of how he’s built his entire career. And, knowing that the Academy is something like 77% white men, it’s no surprise that they actually chose him to host. But in case you didn’t watch (like me!), here’s a transcript of his worst sexist jokes, and why no one should ever patronize him by watching his insufferable, formulaic crap.
And I’m going to continue watching his brilliant comedy
Wow I hope this is sarcasm…because even somehow putting the sexism and racism aside, there is absolutely nothing brilliant about this dude and his comedy. Not even remotely.
okay I’M STILL CURRENTLY IDENTIFYING AS A FEMINIST
BUT i think the only sexist/problematic one was the chris brown/rhianna one. The boobs song was tasteless sure, but not sexist. They weren’t sexist just because they’re jokes directly at a woman
So reducing the work of award-winning actresses to a sexualized body part isn’t sexist? Calling Jennifer Aniston a stripper isn’t sexist? K.
