Now there's a paper cut that's going to sting.

This is REALLY going to piss off the Republicans...

And yet gay people still can't get married in most states.

Done in three, I believe.

Is she naked behind him in that picture??

We secretly switched the guy who plays Edward in Twilight with a cardboard cut out. let's see who notices.

She's about 300lbs less than I thought she would be.

Damm it ! it's Adam and Eve, not Cardboard and Eve. Next thing you know people will want to marry their pets.

If I could find a Scarlett Johansson cutout that didn't fall apart after getting a little moisture on it then I'd probably do the same thing.

You can use clear contact film as a laminate and that should make the poster moisture-proof.

With proper lamination, you can use a damp rag to wipe off anything that spills onto the cutout.

Did she buy a sparkly strap-on for after the wedding? Probably have to put it in the freezer for a bit first though
 
2012-12-05 04:08:19 AM
Let her do it. When she tries to get divorced when she gets on meds, the cutout can't sign papers or verbally consent to it. Let her have a lifelong financial/emotional reminder of her cray-cray.
/I'm sorry for typing "cray-cray".

(... read at your own risk, this is a spiral of crazy that goes all the way down the rabbit hole)


but I have to say, the funniest comment:

''The whole thing is just me exploring this female experience,' she added

So edgy and creative!

We do? Since when?

'We live in a culture where female fandom in particular gets dismissed.'

Oh, good, people that don't know the first farking thing about what they're talking about despite being a part of it. Great. Apparently this intense research didn't involved talking to a male with an obsessive hobby to find out that they're dismissed pretty much equally.

Miss Adkins said she is also exploring Disney movies, and romantic comedies, noting that they all have perfect, happy endings.

She's also apparently about thirty years behind on her Disney, too.

Yeah, sorry, you don't get to excuse your fannish bullshiat as experimental art when you've made no effort whatsoever at either basic rigor (the "experimental" part) or basic literacy regarding your subject (the "art" part). You're just a crazy person entirely worthy of being dismissed out of hand. Hell, I want the thirty seconds I spent quantifying why I feel justified dismissing you out of hand back, you useless fangirl nutball, I could have been doing something infinitely more useful with them like staring blankly into space or smashing my writing hand with a ball peen hammer.

Actually, she's got a point on this one. I think you're right that outside the context of fandom, male and female fans get dismissed pretty much equally, because the people doing it are looking at the fan/not-fan dichotomy before anything else. But within many fandoms, there really are a lot of assholes who really do categorically dismiss the women in their midst, often based on their own failures with women (upon which they themselves will expound at great length).

The problem is, I'm not sure what to do about it. The assholes get tolerated for their depth and breadth of knowledge on the subject, and I cannot see a problem with this in and of itself. Expertise is a thing that should be honored most highly, and fandoms come closer to this ideal than most social groups. But the assholes get this idea in their head that women should be falling all over them for their expertise, which simply isn't true. When it doesn't happen, the assholes assume that women obviously must not respect expertise properly, and that they must therefore have no expertise of their own, rendering them unworthy of respect. It's insane troll logic, but it is ordered in its own twisted way.

I'm curious as to how this would work within Twilight fandom. The demographic is overwhelmingly female: not an unheard-of thing within literary fandoms, but the skew is even bigger than usual, and intuitively, this would seem to inhibit the rise of the assholes. At the same time, however, one of the major criticisms of the fandom's subject matter is that it lends itself disturbingly well to exaclty the sorts of unhealthy gender relationships about which the assholes fantasize (there are worse -Gor comes to mind- but there aren't many). What must this fandom look like, from this standpoint? How does it compare to other fandoms?

At the same time, I'm not sure that "typical" fandoms have been studied well enough to be able to draw conclusions about something as clearly atypical as the Twilight fandom is. I think the subject deserves study, and that the Twilight fandom in particular will make an excellent case study at some later point, but that it doesn't make a good initial step. You can't draw conclusions from something so outside the norm for its kind untill you've got the analogous conclusions concerning the norm for its kind.

Well, the groom certainly looks thrilled

Okay Alanis, this is one of the few examples where it would be ironic if it rained on their wedding day.

Yeah, that's his thrilled face. And his pensive face and his hesitant face and his creepy face.....

That's what I love about these cardboard cut outs. I get older, they stay the same age.

Hopefully, she has bed breaking sex with the cutout and gets impregnated with a bloodthirsty fetus that breaks her pelvis and spine after she drops a cup of blood she's drinking to replace the nutrients the fetus is sucking dry...

/Yes, all of that actually happened in the movie.

Doesn't Edward chew the baby out of Bella and then turns her into an undead monster so they're stuck with each other for all eternity? Lovely story.

"Edward to the mess hall! We were having spaghetti and there's an alien forcing its way out of Kane's chest!"
