Portlandia on IFC just got renewed for two more seasons. Now we can count on more of the feminist bookstore, more birds on things, and more hipster madness. Here’s the Fresh Air interview with creators and stars of the show Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen. Ay-ohhh River!

On a more serious note I think it’s okay

Tw: discussion of Sexual Assault, ‘Real Men’ bullshit
Omg you need to WATCH THIS TED TALK RIGHT NOW
It’s (almost entierly non-problematic) feminist: yes
It talks about social ques given to children through kid’s movies and the whole Magical Quest trope: yes
It talks about raising boys to respect women in a way that’s not just chilvarly: yes
It’s written by a man: yes
Watch, listen and learn, because this guy knows what he’s talking about. It’s important to teach the right lessons to both girls and boys.
This is fantastic, funny, and extremely true. Both girls and boys need to learn together that they’re equal, not just “girls can be powerful” and “boys can be powerful”. take a sec to watch this, dashboard!
“…the story where the boy is a hero, who defeats the villain through violence, and collects his reward, which is a woman with no friends and who doesn’t speak.”
WHAT A GOOD LINE THOUGH
