September 20, 2017

Jimmy shares his thoughts on Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham’s new health “care” bill including why it doesn’t pass Cassidy’s “Jimmy Kimmel Test.”

Last time the GOP was trying to get a wealthcare bill passed, Jimmy shared that his newborn son Bill had a heart problem. Jimmy plead with Republicans not to take the ACA away from the families that can’t afford to keep their babies alive without it. Now senators Cassidy and Graham are trying to pass a new horrible bill.

-States can make people with pre-existing conditions pay even more, by the tens of thousands of dollars.
-They already have 49 votes and need one more.
-Call your Republican senators!

‘Beach Rats’ director answers whether or not a straight woman should make movies about gay men

September 19, 2017

Read the whole interview here

  • Eliza Hittman, the director and writer of the recent drama Beach Rats, is a straight woman. Her film has been criticized for connecting gay sex with violence. At Sundance, an audience member brought up the #BuryYourGays trope in regards to the movie's ending. The director wondered if her being a woman affected the audience's not-so-positive response to her film.
  • The director drew inspiration for Beach Rats partly from both her personally witnessing men cruising on the boardwalk in Coney Island as well the death of Michael Sandy in 2006.
  • When interviewed about the criticisms, Hittman said, "I don't think that men are questioned for taking on, or inhabiting, the world of women. It feels more taboo to take on the world of men for some reason." She later says, "When I watch films about women that are imagined by men, for me, I don't walk into a theater ready to criticize it because it was written by a man. For me the criticism often comes from a place of feeling like it's underdeveloped or superficial. That would provoke my response."
  • In regards to the film's subject matter, Hittman added: "It's not a film about coming out, it's a film about exploration—it's about desire, and it's about putting yourself in sexual situations because you don't know your worth in the world, and putting yourself into risky situations because you don’t have that sense of who you are and what you’re worth. I don’t see that as appropriation."

3LW — aka the Cheetah Girls minus Raven — had a song back in the day called “Playas Gon Play”. The chorus: “Playas, they gonna play, and hatas, they gonna hate.” Sound familiar? That chorus was later reworked into Taylor Swift’s smash “Shake It Off.” Taylor is now being sued by the original songwriters, who claim that 20% of “Shake It Off” is derivative of their song.
