Remember there was almost another twilight book but someone leaked it so Stephanie Meyer refused to finish and I’m 98% sure it was Robert Pattinson and god bless him

Come on, you have to explain. We were talking about body image and what it means to be a woman in the business and to feel self-conscious about the size of one’s ass or lack of ass, or lack of boob, breasts, whatever. - Sarah Paulson (x)

now you’re thinking with portals!
Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?
Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?
So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.
in the UK, spastic is a slur which used to be used in an extremely offensive way to describe an epileptic person, because of the ‘spasms’ they have during the stereotypical tonic-clonic epileptic seizures. however, as much as it still carries that meaning, many people use it in the same way as retard - without knowing what the meaning behind it is. more common variations used are ‘spaz’, or ‘spazzy’. however, in the US, it doesn’t carry the same history, ad as such I (and most reasonable people) can see how Weird Al could have not realised, and his apology is obviously heartfelt and sincere, and in my eyes he could not have dealt with the situation in a more mature and reasonable way :)
Why do people sexualize boobs when we could be doing this with them
