Isn’t it humbling to write hundreds and hundreds of words about sexism and gender and entitlement and then remember that “Flight of the Conchords” nailed the whole displacement-of-responsibility and nice-guy rage things in, like, four sentences?
Literally every piece of hatemail I’ve ever received from a dude is this.
I love how the Addams Family has ZERO slut-shaming. Like… honey you can dance naked and enslave someone with your womanly charms if you want to, I don’t fucking care, but so help me you’re going to get a college education first.
The Addamses are what every family should aspire to be like (you know; without the dismemberment and electric chairs as play time). Honestly, have you ever seen more unconditionally loving and supportive parents than Gomez and Morticia? And not just with the kids, but with each other. I think what’s especially unique about them is how open they are with everything. They don’t treat their children like children. They treat them like they treat everyone else; direct, and to the point.
I HAVE to reblog this…
Remember that time the Addams Family was one of the best TV shows and movie serieses ever?
Between Addams Family Values and Bob’s Burgers there were nearly two decades of “Dysfunctional Families are funny when they hurt and hate each other" rather than "Loving and quirky families can be funny in just how surprised and freaked-out the people around them get (with envy).”
The second as a source of comedy is far healthier.
