Trump and the Convention and Where We Go From Here – Whatever

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

Trump and the Convention and Where We Go From Here – Whatever:

I like John Scalzi’s political commentary a lot. I don’t see much to disagree with here.

To my followers, most of whom are younger than me, I want to say something. I’m going to try not to say it too often, but I think it’s worth getting on the record for whatever teency amount of good it might do.

Please vote.

As a group, your political views are much better than those of fogeys like me (not me in particular, necessarily, but my age/race/gender cohort, who embarrassingly are by far the most likely to be voting Trump). It gives me hope for the future that so many of you (really, an overwhelming majority of you) see through his shtick.

The problem is that too few of you actually vote. As you age more and more of you eventually will, but for now, with your lives full of more pressing concerns than endorsing a crufty old political system, too few of you do.

We (all of us; fogeys, millennials, everyone in between) need to make an effort this time. It isn’t an ordinary election. Trump’s victory or loss, and the size of that victory or loss, will have effects that echo down through the rest of our lives. You’ll look back on this election when you’re gray and embarrassing. You’ll look back in pride or regret, but I guarantee you’ll look back.

Future you wants you to play your part.

tfw when you’re walking (a lot) b/c of a certain game and you’re entering a park and birds are flying around and you’re sort of primed to imagine weird cartoonish arbitrarily colored birds being superimposed on your field of view via augmented reality and you maybe haven’t had as much sleep as you should due to the Very Important Need to reach level 19 and you happen to be very familiar with all the actual local birds and all of a sudden a brightly colored bird that very much does not belong there (an escaped pet; i’m guessing maybe a yellow-faced fischer’s lovebird?) flies right in front of you and for a moment you wonder if it’s really there

“There are always men enraged by women’s autonomy, whether women are starring in a comedy reboot or “Thelma & Louise”; playing rock or video games; demanding their reproductive rights; running for president; or, you know, doing anything that some men don’t want them to do.”

“It’s not really out to prove that women can be strong or funny or handle powerful weapons. In most movies, such offers of proof are accompanied by reassurances that the women in question are still sexy or maternal or eager to settle down with the right guy — that they fulfill some kind of conventional idea of femininity. Ghostbusters doesn’t bother with any of that, and in the process seems to be on the verge of inventing a new set of archetypes.”

New York Times film critic A.O. Scott in So That’s Who You Call: The Politics of the New ‘Ghostbusters’ (via calystarose)
