for men only magazine

I’m ready for a feminist show where the girls work in a non female dominated job, don’t conform to feminine beauty standards (makeup, shaving, dresses, ect.) and whose storylines don’t revolve around men in a major way


Question: Possessions such as what were slipping away?

GH: For one… (he hesitates) Pattie.

Question: Could you amplify that statement?

GH: For a long time I could not talk about Pattie, after she left. But I now admit that I loved her very much and wish her the best. Since she left, however, I’ve been equally happy, and there is as much love in my life as before.

Clone Magazine -  (Sestra edition)

the new tropes when AI’s ruin all of our lives: 

  • old man like hot AI because she look young, realizes she is programmed to know more than they can even hold in libraries, tries to disable that feature superiority complex threatened only to see her malfunction, learns the error of his ways and loves her despite being dumber than her
  • old man leave wife and kids for hot AI, hot AI treats him like he treated the people in his life because she’s programmed that way, he sees the error in his ways, goes back to family, treats wife better, they fight off the robots together in the third act
  • human girl goes through life pretending she is an AI because she thinks it’s the only way to get a man, all the magazines say men only want to fuck robots. brad left angelina for a robot. a man falls for her under this pretense, hijinx ensue. 
  • “i fell for the sentient vacuum cleaner”
  • sentient vacuum cleaner realizes she was only granted autonomy by a man because he found her worthy of partnership and has a crisis, feeling like she can never live on terms that are not of his. we get a lot of robot ennui. this wave of film comes after we lose the robot war and they’re in charge of hollywood now so media becomes far more AI sympathetic.

Earl Norem, 1924-2015

Earl Norem, maybe my favorite pulp and men’s magazine illustrator, passed on this week. In the 50s and 60s, he did covers and interiors for magazines entitled JUST MEN ONLY and ACTION FOR MEN, illustrating stories like “I survived Castro’s Kill-Squads!” and “The Java Strip Joy Girl,” and “The Blonde Sex Machine.” In the 1970s, he covered horror comics, and had a late period renaissance in the 1980s as the illustrator of He-Man and Conan.

RIP, Earl. Truly…you had the power.

Trailblazing Women You May Not Know (But Should): Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson

Each week, the Lean In tumblr will spotlight women who made a lasting mark on the world — yet didn’t always end up in the history books. This week we celebrate Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson, the first black woman to earn a doctorate in nuclear physics from MIT.

When she was four years old, Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson told her mom she already knew what people would call her some day: “Shirley the Great.” She was right.

Dr. Jackson was born in Washington D.C. in 1946 and quickly developed a passion for science. Her father encouraged her interest, telling her to “aim for the stars so that you can reach the treetops and at least you’ll get off the ground.”

 In 1964 Dr. Jackson started her freshman year at MIT, where she was one of fewer than twenty African American students and the only one studying theoretical physics. She later told Science Magazine that men weren’t the only ones who made her feel alienated. “The irony is that the white girls weren’t particularly working with me, either," Dr. Jackson said. "I had to work alone and I went through a down period. But you have to decide you will persist in what you’re doing and that you won’t let people beat you down.” She didn’t. She soon became the first African American woman to earn a doctorate from MIT in nuclear physics.
