Me-again quit The View

Note: She doesnt actually /leave/ for another month. Hold off on the dance gifs.

To those who are /attempting/ to narrative that the ratings will suffer without her? I stopped watching because she WAS there. She is not "drama". She is unworthy.

Writing & reading & critics

I shall cite the sources in a bit but meanwhile...

"The delineation between paranoid and reparative readings originated in 1995, with influential critic Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick. A paranoid reading focuses on what’s wrong or problematic about a work of art. A reparative reading seeks out what might be nourishing or healing in a work of art, even if the work is flawed. Importantly, a reparative reading also tends to consider what might be nourishing or healing in a work of art for someone who isn’t the reader."

This that I quote was shared by shittysoup in the discussion on cancel culture & how critics leap before they look

From a discussion on ONTD....

"A sci-fi writer got meta about gender. The internet responded by ruining her life..."

Specifically I share this quote for the writers I know who get pelted by critics who speak first & read later maybe?

But I am finding the discussion around the short story in question interesting...

Brewer Marcus

He also sharing the logo & advertising. He's cool as long as a portion of the profits goes to the cause...

I am amplifying :)

I dont drink but I like his idea
