There’s no reason to assume that you know what kind of sex someone wants just because you know their sex, gender, orientation, or favorite Hunger Games character — sleeping with someone new should be a process of discovering each other, not hauling out the same moves you used on your ex.

Sometimes as I’m teaching my students I get a little freaked out and start worrying that I’m basically a modern version of that lady inThe King and I. You know, white British lady going to a foreign country and inflicting her Western values on the poor, unknowing people. I mean, I do sing a lot with my students, which might be the first warning sign. And I often prize behaviors in class that are definitely super Western, encourage them to act the way I think students should act, which actually just happens to be how students in America are expected to act. Colonialism through education? The Vietnamese and Western values for education can be quite different, which is something my students enjoy talking about. I’ve been struggling with this idea all year and I still don’t know what to make of it.

I keep seeing this and as much as I agree with the sentiment that the Doctor is much cooler than Edward Cullen or many American superheroes, I really hate the way it is expressed here. Here we imply that men wearing tights or being sparkly is a bad thing. Why is it bad? I think it’s awesome. Furthermore, why is a really old man snatching up girls much younger than him a good thing? Why is that something to be proud of? Because it shows off his uber-masculinity? It’s so creepy to me how they say “young women,” as if the age is the most important thing. I love David Tennant and I love Doctor Who, but I really can’t stand this. Besides, they use two different spellings for the word “idolize”. UGH.
