One to go.
What’s in a name?
The renaming of Calhoun College closed a debate that turns on the legacy of American slavery, the complexities of race and representation in America and, above all, the chilling power of a name like that of John C. Calhoun, class of 1804.
Hmm… Wikipedia says that Elihu Yale, the university’s namesake was a slaver trader. Time to change that name, too. I suggest “Trigglypuff Memorial Safe Space.”
Yeah, “memorial.” With that weight and anger management problem, it’s only a matter of time. It’s a toss-up whether heart failure or stroke will do the job first.
Nicki tears “feminists” a new [gender-neutral, biologically nonspecific orifice]. This time, she was…. ahem, triggered by morons… triggered by the fact that the latest Wonder Woman is attractive and shaves her arm pits.
I know! Let’s do a Kickstarter project to fund a version of Wonder Woman in which the heroine is a hairy lesbian from a culture that predates soap. This version of WW will disdain cis-male constructs like binary evil/good. Ze will only dispense justice as decided by consensus. Ze will actually be forced into such a role because zirs culture is 100% vegan, resulting in neural under-development in all the offspring. (A prequel can explain how these hirsute cavewomyn even have offspring.)
Hmm… and since we want to avoid stereotypes of beauty imposed by outdated notions like “health,” “child-bearing capacity,” or just plain evil cis-male lust, we absolutely must cast exactly the right person in the role of Whatzit Womyn.
I admit, this will raise the funding requirements substantially, to purchase enough food to maintain that bulk. On the other hand, this greatly expands the possibilities for fat-shaming supervillains.
Then we start a betting pool on how long it takes to get sufficient donations for more than a 50 page flipbook animation.
