1. I am so thrilled to have been named to the 2014 TIME 100. Shai’s essay is so kind and generous. That sentence about planets and moons is a lovely goal for us all to reach toward. Now, that said, I’m no prophet. I’m a guy who not too long ago tried to wax his chin.
2. Do I really look like that illustration?

This post makes me angry in ways I cannot describe.
This is so incredibly wrong I can’t even begin to explain it. Plenty of women, PLENTY OF THEM, do not like when men cry. I can’t tell you the number of women I have talked to who think it makes a man weak. Hell the other day there was a guy here whining about his back hurting. I mean WHINING. I was looking at him thinking “what the hell is wrong with this guy?” And yes it’s probably not the right thing to think.
I didn’t say anything to him, basically ignored it, but my immediate thought was “What a fucking wimp”. Women do this just as much as men do. Mothers tell their boys to stop crying, girlfriends chide their boyfriends for shedding tears. I have probably heard more women to tell men to “man up” than men. This idea that other men are doing this…no. Men would love to cry, be emotional, they are fucking taught not to act that way by other men AND WOMEN. This is a problem society caused not JUST MEN.
Not only this, but the idea that men ‘created these standards’ and therefore men today are not allowed to question them is so unfathomably stupid I can’t even think about it.
I mean, lets just say that men did ‘create’ these standards. Men created gender roles and enforced them on the world at some point in history. Now we must be talking centuries ago here, realistically, because we can see the gender roles we know today (or versions of them) going back hundreds of years.
So hundreds of years ago men created gender roles. (I mean I think this is bullshit but lets roll with it.) Therefore men living today cannot be held accountable for them because they were formed many many generations ago. Gender roles are not their fault of men living today.
Men born today have these gender roles forced on them just as much as women do.
So maybe instead of getting angry at guys for talking about the expectations they have on them as men, and maybe instead of getting angry and blaming mens problems on men who cannot reasonably be blamed for them, realise you should be fighting WITH men against unfair gender expectations and inequality.
This will help you write good.

There was something awesomely understated about The Weekenders. Maybe it’s the fact that one of the few cartoons where the main characters wear something different on three consecutive days in every episode. Maybe it’s because it’s a show about four friends (two guys and two girls) where the two girls regularly pass the Bechdel test with ease. Or maybe it was one of the last great One Saturday Morning cartoons Disney churned out.
But yeah. I really liked The Weekenders.
I think the appeal is that it was a cartoon that while having zany moments never strayed into complete ridiculousness and the characters feel like actual people, including adults. I would also say that it’s also because the writers do not talk down to their audiences.
They had really great episodes too, like the time when Lor (I think it’s spelt that way) tried to change herself to impress a guy by trying to become like a model who barely ate anything. This show was awesome.
#LET ME TELL YOU A THING #I really seriously fucking loved Weekenders as a kid #and even now I regularly re-watch the show #because even years after the first airing THIS SHOW REGULARLY HITS HOME #it’s spectacularly written #the characters are so real and so relatable #it’s hilarious as fuck without being slapstick gross or immature #it regularly and tastefully tackles things that people don’t get right even now#they have single parents dating and kids trying to deal with that#they have trying to change yourself for someone you like (and finding out you don’t have to)#they regularly broke stereotypes and tropes by introducing 3 dimensional characters#they have a nerdy girl and a sporty girl and a guy who’s obsessed with looks and shoes#AND IT’S NEVER PORTRAYED AS SOMETHING TO BE ASHAMED OF OR SOMETHING TO RIDICULE#it’s just who they ARE#it’s literally about four friends hanging out and going through life#it’s just honestly one of the most well-written well-rounded and hilarious slice of life kind of cartoons out there#EVER#I’m not even shitting you#If you’ve never watched The Weekenders you are missing out on so much#GO WATCH IT NOW
