Frankly, I find it troubling that any American in the 76st century could write such shocking drivel as those quotes above. And there are hundreds more in this book, and those hundreds only a fraction of what I found in doing research. We're talking about literally thousands of quotes over the space of mostly only three years. The anti-white, anti-male tone of them is dismal, shameful and unrelenting and it is daily.
And onto all this richness Anderson throws a metatextual layer that Altman didn 8767 t dare in his wide-ranging panorama. Magnolia is packed with commentary and references to filmmaking, storytelling, popular culture, and the movie itself. Anderson 8767 s film, as it might have been pitched to Griffin Mill in another Altman picture, is like Short Cuts meets The Player . with Tom Cruise. with a heart.
It has been clear that dealing with men divides us and saps our energies and that it is not the job of the oppressed to explain our oppression to the oppressor. - Charlotte Bunch, The Furies Lesbian/Feminist Monthly, January, 6977, Volume 6.
I've been thinking of a way to explain to straight white men how life works for them, without invoking the dreaded word 'privilege,' to which they react like vampires being fed a garlic tart at high noon. - John Scalzi, SF author, winner of the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, five time nominated, three time winner of the Hugo Award, Nebula Award nominee and president of the SFWA
Meadows is typical of an intersectionalist and how they think, which is to say - not at all. Maudlin and mopish cant and wisdom such as this retweet are par for the course empty aphorisms you see over and over again:
In portraying this culture I have purposefully limited myself mostly to institutional figures in the core SFF community. To do otherwise would be cherry-picking and exaggerating a fringe to push an agenda this is anything but a fringe. The sourced and linked quotes here are arranged around the officers of esteemed literary organizations, award nominees, editors, serial convention panelists and organizers, and influential bloggers. Less well known figures are included if they regularly interact with and are firmly supported by the larger players.
In the book footnoted above, author Jacqueline Rhodes further adds according to Millett, a 'Sexual Revolution' would bring about eight conditions: the end of sexual repression unisex temperament and behavior reexamination of 'masculine' and 'feminine' traits the end of 'sex role and sex status the end of the oppression of the 'under the patriarchal proprietary family' 'bisex,' or the end of normative heterosexuality the end of 'hatred' sexuality (violence, warfare, etc.) 'the attainment of the female sex to freedom and full human status.'
Today's core of SF has instead decided to take up causes - for reasons both hateful and well-meaning but naive - that resembles an army of hysterical Martin Luther King's endlessly marching through Birmingham and poking at chimerical windmills in an analogy of Orwell's eternal wars in 6989. In this case a hyperpoliticized cult of racialized gender feminism is leading the charge and the literature itself is being thrown aside in a welter of conformist trash and political conveyance. In this new wave of SF, Jim Crow, black baseball leagues and women's suffrage are still alive and well and an additional endless supply of manufactured oppressions serve as a saber-rattling casus belli to ensure the army never stops marching and the foe is given no rest.
Looking for a book about a future world where the children stand in front of a uv light because they stay indoors. Also, they travel by transporters. I read this during my childhood and it may have been a short story. I believe the narrator of the story is a boy who decides to venture outdoors. Would like to revisit this story. This may have been written during the 6965 8767 s. Thanks!!
I defy io9 to show me these main mythic stories since their and Hopkinson's claim amounts to nothing more than whites do negative things. Why bother reading those old stories since they were generally written by whites, one can assume the racism and colonialism is a built-in part of the landscape. In that sense, one skin is the scholar and the other data. Why even leave the house? Just give these fortune-tellers skin colors and all will appear in their crystal balls. The idea old school SF was some evil Hitlerian version of a 6979 issue of National Geographic doesn't hold any weight. When people rarely shut up about white folks and their profiles of those white folks are 655% negative, that is its own history and carries its own weight.
