Johanna is incredibly perceptive, sarcastic and brash. She speaks her mind, regardless of the consequences, or who she hurts. While Johanna has a very hard exterior, she definitely understands the greater good of the districts and would lay down her life for freedom.

I was talking to my brother about women’s attitudes towards their bodies, especially regarding weight/fat, and when he said “most guys don’t notice/care about that kind of thing,” I tried to explain why it was a lot more complicated than that. I ended up telling this story.
Body image is something that’s so hard to talk about, and it’s hard to express body positivity without sounding cheesy, false, or overly simplistic. But I’m gonna try. This is only my own experience, and it didn’t magically cure me of all my body image issues - but it was a major turning point for me nonetheless.
This hits the nail right on the head.

I’ve never seen this show but this kind of makes me want to. They could have easily made a lame gay panic joke here but didn’t.

Family Guy is 100% tasteless and terrible but its success doesn’t make me quite as angry as The Big Bang Theory’s because there’s of course that audience that watches Family Guy and somehow finds it funny and I’m fully aware of those types of people and for the most part am still able to get along with them but I literally cannot begin to fathom why anyone ever found The Big Bang Theory funny in any way at all ever.
I was a pretty big fan of the first three seasons. It was a fun series with some really loveable characters. The standouts were Leonard who was a shy sweetheart, Penny who was bubbly and optimistic whilst also having a bit of an attitude, and everyone’s favourite pedantic jerk Sheldon, who gave us some of the show’s most memorable moments and episodes. It was basically about a group of friends geeking out over stuff. The best episodes were completely character-based. The Christmas episode where Penny finally gets a hug from Sheldon, the one where Sheldon has to take Penny to the hospital while the other guys get high on a camping trip, the flashback one where Sheldon and Leonard move in together, etc. The jokes were pretty funny and the characters were interesting and unique. It also had a lot of heart at its core. It wasn’t high art or anything but it was still a silly, funny and enjoyable show.
But by season four the show started to really change for the worse. The jokes became more tired and the sitcom cliches started becoming more and more prominent (Penny and Leonard became the dreaded on-again-off-again couple). Leonard, who was once a sweetheart, became really whiney and annoying. Penny’s character development regressed entirely and she became a nagging girlfriend stereotype who mocks everything Leonard loves. Howard and Bernadette were constantly arguing. Amy became a sort-of love interest for Sheldon and soon enough the show’s premise turned into a group of guys hanging out with their hot girlfriends (who rarely ever got their own storylines). As much as I really like Amy as a character (Mayim Bialik is a great comedic actress), it really bugs me that almost every time Amy, Penny and Bernadette are together they’re almost always talking about shopping or boys. You’d think an actress, a neurosurgeon and a microbiologist would have more interesting things to talk about (or do, for that matter). The jokes became way lazier, the formulas kept repeating and soon there were only like three episodes per season that were genuinely funny.
It’s sad, because I really did love it once.
"how will i explain gay couples to my children”
if you can explain to your children that an immortal man in a red suit who lives in the north pole travels around the entire world on one night every year on a sleigh carried by magical flying deer i think itll be easy enough to tell them two people are in love
