US author questions child porn jail.
And I quote:
”We have prisons now filled with guys my age. Sixty-year-old white men in prison who’ve never harmed anybody, would never touch a child,” he told the Telegraph.
The American judicial system is definitely worth criticism but I wouldn’t sick my colours to the mast over all the poor old white men who thought it was okay to look at child porn……. seriously. Wtf.
Current sexual orientation: Boyd Crowder and his ridiculously tight jeans.
That’s not what they are u-…. Okay
Frederick William Elwell - The Wedding Dress
I could recognize him by touch alone, by smell; I would know him blind, by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth. I would know him in death, at the end of the world.
The second Zane came in, it just clicked. We had a really good time. Robert was just smiling the whole time and laughing while we were playing. After Zane left the room, I could just see him. He’s got this smirk he does and this little laugh. The second I saw that I was like, “All right, that’s the guy.” There was nobody else for the part. Zane’s crushing it.

Saw Gone Girl today. I liked it, even though I spent most of it with my legs crossed awkwardly and a slight grimace on my face.
Firstly, I did really love having a properly formed female villain to enjoy. And I did enjoy her, despite being both appalled and rather disturbed by her. But that’s the point of good villains, they are enjoyable characters because of the way they are constructed and the feelings they elicit. It was a good take on a well used plot and I really liked that, even though the pacing kind of became a bit off once Amy returned home, a bit rushed almost.
Secondly, I don’t really understand criticism that it was misogynistic. Amy is well written, complex, with her own motives, thoughts, drives and ideas about what her life should be. Unfortunately, almost none of these are particularly good and she is a certainly, underneath it all, a terrible person. Her actions are extreme, and by no means justified. Is it because she’s a woman that some people find that so uncomfortable? I would suggest yes. If Amy were a man, I really don’t think it would matter; he would join the pantheon of male villains, criminals and psychopaths already established. We shouldn’t be demanding for greater female representation only to fill that space with positive, good, ‘strong’ female characters (ugh). How boring.
And Amy isn’t the only woman in this film. Her mother, Margot and Detective Boney where given characters of their own, each with their flaws and strengths. Even Andie was given some semblance of one. It was realistic in that sense. Neither was Nick the blameless victim of his wife’s schemes - neither him or Amy are good people and that makes the film all the more interesting. Writing off the whole thing as sexist is just short sighted and does a disservice to the brilliance of Amy’s psychopathy.
