Over the weekend I signed in to Netflix to watch the new season of House of Cards, but realized I wasn’t in the proper frame of mind for high drama, and instead found myself watching Arrow (a CW show), which I hadn’t even heard of before and made my way ridiculously quickly through the entire first season.
I realize this doesn’t even come close to qualifying as good meaty television, but it sure makes for a fun and delightful tv-snack. It’s like The O.C. (ugh, the BEST!), but with the added layer of superheroes and villains!, making it perfect fodder for gay comic book nerdery (which I find myself subscribing to more and more as time goes on, apparently). Plus there are appearances by Captain Jack Harkness and Professor River Song!
My tax refund hit my bank account today, so I guess me and the government are going pretty steady now.
AP: Facebook is rolling out a change to its 159 million US users that will give them more options than ever before when it comes to choosing their gender.
A new, customizable option gives users about 50 different terms to identify their gender, including androgynous, bi-gender, intersex, gender fluid or transsexual.
This is huge and important.
