Ok, friends, have a seat. I wanna school you on a thing.
Do you recognize this kickass lady, here? It’s ok if you don’t. That’s why we’re having this talk. This adorbs vision is none other than the freaking fabulous Maurissa Tancharoen, writer, producer, and fucking showrunner for Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.
Y’all like Agents of SHIELD, right? Like all that snappy dialogue? Those great characters? Mo Tancharoen is who you should be thanking. Yeah, I know we’ve got the Whedon name slapped all over everything, and yeah that ups the numbers. But, y’all, Joss fucked off to go work on Avengers 2. This bonafide badass is who he left flying the quinjet.
Oh, did you see Doctor Horrible’s Sing-along Blog? Yeah, a lot of that was her, too. And Much Ado About Nothing? That eerie, gorgeous soundtrack? Also her. Were you one of those folks, like me, who thought Dollhouse was genius and really could have been something amazing? Guess who ran the show on that one.
Oh yeah, and she worked on the Avengers script, too. Also those Spartacus series on STARZ that apparently a lot of people liked.
Basically, Mo Tancharoen is a goddess of geek media, and, y’know, Asian-American with Thai roots. So she is an extra hardcore WoC getting shit done.
So when you talk about AoS - the good and the bad, the writing, the story arcs, and all the other shit we flail about - there is no fucking reason to bring Joss into it unless you’re talking about how this glorious queen’s contributions are erased and overshadowed by this white dude.
Maurissa Tancharoen, friends. Now you know.
The more I learn about Whedon the more I’m sure that everything of his that I’ve actually liked was really made by a woman and he took all the credit for it.
Nicholas Lord, a Navy sailor since 2008 currently on active duty, is under investigation after threatening to rape a young woman who is a Navy recruit.
The young woman posted a photo of herself on Facebook, captioning it to say she’s proud of how she’s working hard to get in shape for the Navy, and she’s excited to be leaving soon. The photo was shared on the page for her Delayed Entry Program for her fellow Navy recruits.
Nicholas Lord, who is not a current recruit and who has been serving in the Navy since 2008, then commented:
You’ll end up pregnant real soon you fucking wh***. If I could and I knew you, I’d hold you down and rape you.
The next day, Lord gloated about his threat on his Facebook page, updating his status to say he’d been “trolling feminist pages.” In case it needs to be said, the Facebook page for a Navy program is not a “feminist page.” It’s a Navy recruiting page. (x) (x)
I don’t know what the Navy’s punishment system is like, but I hope he gets the worst possible. I hope they investigate his past history in the military, too. If he’s bold enough to outright threaten female recruits, under his own name, on public, Navy-run social media, I seriously doubt he hasn’t harassed and threatened female sailors. He may even have raped them.
Especially given the military’s problem with letting men get away with harassment and rape, they need to severely punish him.
Send it viral, and he will see ramifications.
If you only reblog one thing today I hope it’s this.
In the Air Force at least, I think the punishment for stuff like this is fairly serious. My cousin has been doing work for women’s equality within the Air Force for a while.
I’m assuming a dishonorable discharge is in order. However, I’m not sure about the Navy and I only have limited knowledge to begin with.
I know that response to rape is -extremely- serious and always leads to involuntary separation. However, I don’t know what rape -threats- will get. Either way this is disgusting and I hope the man rots.
Gordon Ramsay doesn’t care about your gender, race, or creed. All he cares about is that you can cook.
The contestant, Christine, is blind, and he lets her know exactly what he thinks of her dish.
OMG I was preparing myself to be enraged by him making some horrible comment but now I’m crying in Starbucks GOD DAMMIT
Christ I am not okay with these fEELINGS
That’s so cute I wanna cry
Is there a Gordon Ramsay fan base on this site??? And where can i join???
Spoilers, she won. Her cookbook is on sale now.
Also, this is the very first apple pie she ever made.
Also, can we please take notice OF HOW HE DESCRIBES IT FOR HER? Ramsay was extremely conscious during the entire season that she would require different tactics than the other contestants; this was not the only time he became her eyes, nor the only time he did things like that scrape of the knife so she could actually have a sense of her work.
And if you really want to bawl like a baby? During final four or final three, I forget which, the remaining contestants got photos from home. Christine’s husband sent their wedding photo—which she had never seen. Ramsay paused before starting the challenge to describe to her not only her husband—the look of love and joy on his face—but also herself as a bride, so she could see in her mind how the two of them looked together on their wedding day.
It was extremely obvious nobody had ever thought to do that before.
This man should be a fucking icon not just for his cooking, but for how he treats those who are different. During the same season he asked a handsome young man, making conversation during auditions, if he had a girlfriend. The man responded that he was gay. Ramsay, without missing a beat: “I’m sorry. Have you got a boyfriend, then?” No drama, no “oh my GOSH! You’re GAY? TOKEN CHARACTER :DDDD” just a very quick, simple whoops-my-mistake and the corrected inquiry. And then he never brought it up again! It was just a thing he learned, getting to know a contestant.
Yes, he can be harsh on MasterChef and downright cruel on Hell’s Kitchen (although if you were a sous chef and you served me raw pork that was not pork tartare, I’d scream too). But he’s not an ogre; he’s a polite man with a gigantic heart who simply happens to take no shit from those who should know better.
I love him so much like at first I was scared of him now I just respect him
Gordon Ramsay is the absolute best.. No questions
This is a guy who knows how to bring out the best in people. If he knows you worked to the utmost of your ability, that you tried and tried and never stopped, he gives you the credit for that. If he knows you sloughed off and stopped even trying halfway through the work, he calls you out on it.
Yes, he’s loud and abrasive, even downright rude sometimes. But he knows his business, and he knows what it takes to mold someone into a skilled, hard-working chef. He gives encouragement as well as criticising where necessary.
if i ever start a band i’m going to name it “music” and then it will be literally impossible to find any of our songs on the internet
the first album : “Unknown album”
the hit single: “track 1”
Some people wanna watch the world burn
This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.
Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.
boost the fuck out of this, and make sure you include their goddamn names and country of origin.
