I'm Regina Small. I'm a writer and editor in NYC. I have a lot of opinions.
Interests include: sci-fi/fantasy, literature, summertime daydrinking, trying to be a better person, fancy manicures, philosophy, pictures for sad children, and the role of irony in the modern world. And fandom, of course.
I have another blog dedicated exclusively to science fiction/fantasy. Read it here.
I don’t (can’t, won’t) understand people who would never have marched up to a friend in the cafeteria in the 7th grade and said “I know she said horrible things about you, but I still like her. Just calm down, it’s just so exhausting to hate everyone all the time” yet do exactly that as adults every time somebody in a pretty ball gown acts like a god damn turd toward someone else. Explain it to me. Even shitty junior high friends earned a minute of loyalty by sharing their Funyuns and getting your geography homework when you had the flu. What has Jennifer Lawrence done for you? Does she pay your electric bill? Do you think you get a piece of rich, thin, attractive, and famous by sticking with her? (Newsflash: She’s not sharing.) Or do you just want most people to ignore YOUR shithouse behavior like they’ve ignored hers?
White girls, this is why no one should trust us. This crap right here.
It’s weird because I’ve actually seen this behavior a lot? Both in adolescence and in adulthood? “Oh I know [X] was terrible to YOU, but s/he’s always been nice to me!” But it’s extra bizarre when applied to celebrities.
This was one of those things that I thought got blown totally out of proportion. Like he’s first thanking people he works with and then does this awkward segue by talking about “working” with his wife on their marriage. But the weirdest part was how everyone reacted like “Your marriage requires WORK?! Uh-oh, splitsville!”like all of a sudden, everyone’s spontaneously forgotten what being in a relationship is actually like.
