Politics and Jane the Virgin 3x08

Every time I see a FB friend proudly declare that they've silenced all mention of politics on the feed because it's all just negging, I'm sort of amazed that they think they're privileged enough not to have any of this affect them at all. Sure, the "get over it, it'll be fine" assholes are mostly white men, but the number of white women and MOC who put up statuses like this make me feel SERIOUSLY JUDGEY.


IT WON'T COST MUCH. JUST YOUR VOICE! THOSE POOR UNFORTUNATE SOULS (are not me hahahahaha)


Thank you to those who marched. Thank you to those who are organizing and fighting back. Here's a good list of places to send money if you also have no political voice/vote in any country. (Expat for too long.)


Jane the Virgin continues to delight. The humor (The puns! The total disregard for the 4th wall via the narrator!) and political snark is totally on point, as are all the character dynamics. I lovelovelove how every single character gets their own POV explored! Nobody is a foil or a prop- they're all their own people, with their own selfish (and unselfish) motivations, actively writing their own stories. This show totally deserves all the accolades it got in S1, although it makes me sad that the ratings remain lackluster. :(((

Anyway, this GIF of Jane pretty much sums me up right now:
