Lipstick Feminism

So this random, seemingly unimportant website published this very short writeup that seemed to be their attempt to examine the question “can you wear makeup and be a feminist?” seem very scholarly. It looks like they briefly summarized a paper written by someone on the ideas of makeup, beauty, and the purpose, and, well… they got dragged on Twitter. This is what I love about the internet.

Game of Thrones: The Spoils of War

So we missed a couple of weeks because the site was down (but notice its new hotness yay!) so let me just assume that if you’re reading this, you already watched those, and we’ll jump to the current episode in which all my Mother of Dragons dreams came true. Obviously, spoilers galore. If you haven’t watched it yet, it’s already pretty spoiled by the first paragraph, and you should stop reading.
