3 Things for Yesterday- Mae West, Black Out, and Ross on Prison Sterilization

by - Friday, June 13, 2014

1. "When women go wrong, men go right after them"-Oh, Mae West, it is clear very quickly that you are a strange and badass woman. I watched She Done Him Wrong yesterday, which also features a toddler Cary Grant, and you just can't deny that no one is having a better time than she is. It was a great first Mae West experience, though I think I may be too historically removed to get all of her innuendos and bawdiness.

2. Episode 12 of Orange is the New Black- We finished the season last night (I will write more about it later?), but my favorite one was the second to last, which really felt suspenseful, like anything could happen. I will be honest, I hated the nun episode. Hated it. Least favorite of the entire run maybe? So it was nice to have such a knockout right away afterwards. Also, no one was more excited to keep watching than the Boy, which makes me feel like I chose the right man.
3. Loretta Ross's essay on Sterilization in prisons- http://rhrealitycheck.org/article/2014/06/12/eugenicists-never-retreat-just-regroup-sterilization-reproductive-oppression-prisons/- Brilliant. Read how eugenics may not be a thing of the past.
