I would be following this if I had a twitter
Suzanne aka ‘Crazy Eyes’ from OITNB.
Wanted to repost this and say she is one of my favourite characters from OITNB, but then I realized that I love every single one of them. This show is brilliantly done and I can’t wait to watch the new season once I get back to Toronto and our awesomely reliable internet connection.
Female voters in the US have been called “soccer moms” and “security moms”. In 2004, single women were “Sex and the City voters”. Now – because apparently women can’t ever just be “citizens” or “voters”, or more likely because conservatives prefer to call us names instead of delving too deep into women’s issues – we are “Beyoncé voters”. Bow down, bitches.
Most single ladies would generally be thrilled with a comparison to Queen Bey in any way, shape or form, but the cutesy nicknames for politically-engaged women need to stop. Surely pundits and the political media culture can deal with the collective electoral power of the majority voting bloc in this country in some better way than symbolically calling us “sweetheart”, complete with head pat. — Jessica Valenti: Nick-naming women ‘Beyoncé voters’ is exactly why we don’t vote Republican (via gregferrell)
God, I can’t believe this is even a thing. I mean, I haven’t been old enough to count as anything other than a ‘youth voter’, but I really haven’t heard any name calling for female voters in Canada. Way to be stuck in perpetual retrograde -_-‘
