Heels aren’t just shoes. They can make women feel powerful, sexy, tall, intimidating, or a whole host of things a shoe shouldn’t really be able to provide. 

And to the curators at the Brooklyn Museum, high heels are art. 

Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe combines intense thigh-high erotic boots with glass slippers and a heel hat, in addition to shoes from prolific designers and historical periods. 

Heels are a part of history, exhibit curator Lisa Small said in a question-and-question, so the exhibit is actually “a form of material culture that can reveal quite a bit about the personal, social, and cultural concerns of the era it comes from.”

The exhibit, which runs through February 15, hosts shoes from Christian Louboutin, Zaha Hadid X United Nude and Alexander McQueen, among others. 

The collection also brought to the forefront just how much high heels mean to women’s lives.

A wall at the end of the exhibit is filled with Polaroids of women in heels, accompanied by words like “ouch,” “control,” “sneakers > heels” and “sexy.”

This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy. 

Yup.

So this.

I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.

Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.

One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.

There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.

I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.

There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.

And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.

It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.

also let’s remember that the simpsons crew and showrunners really hate family guy so this episode was definitely something being pushed by the studio

It’s the worst human rights abuse in the world: 160 Million girls have disappeared from the face of the earth because they were murdered at birth by their parents, when they found out that their fetus is a girl. …

In our own country… one of the worst places for sexual abuse is on college campuses. The finest universities in America are a place where girls are regularly abused. Quite often their rapist is a serial rapist who know if they go to a college campus they will not be revealed, charged, or prosecuted…

The same thing is happening in the US Military….

If this is happening in two of America’s most revered institutions - can you imagine how much worst it is in other countries?
