4 Things About Joss Whedon’s Wonder Woman Script That Make Doves Cry

Boy. Was it an interesting week. Besides Beyoncé’s Gemini twins being born, the internet was initially ablaze for an entirely different reason…that reason mainly being Joss Whedon’s longtime (and alleged) Wonder Woman script finally hitting the internet in its entirety. I debated whether or not I would jump in on this topic. Mainly because Whedon … Continue reading

Wonder Woman’s Body Hair Is Not A “Feminist” Issue. It Is A White Feminist Issue

It is said that every 60 seconds (don’t quote me), White feminists do and say some shit that is so woefully asinine and obtuse that the world has to collectively Megazord Up™! and challenge them on it. Of course, since that is very fucking often, we tend to ignore most of what they say and … Continue reading

Scott Derrickson Thinks Praise Is More Effective Than Criticism. Here’s Why That’s Bullshit

Dearest Lovers of the Zoo. I know what you’re thinking: I know what you’re thinking: Lex, it’s only the fourth day of the year. Why are you wildin’ already? In a way, you’re right. It is too early to wild. But if I am to keep it 100, I must say that there are plenty … Continue reading

The Power of Black Feminism Compels You: Why You Should Put Some Respeck On Our Names

Nate Parker’s Magnum Opus has flopped. Hoteps, rape apologists, race-first ideology subscribers and Roland Martin are blaming Black feminists for it. But you know what? I’m not even mad. In fact, I am so gleeful as I write these words. Reckless ass articles are being written and published with less than an ounce of respectable … Continue reading

And because the Twitter Gods™ love me, someone out there heard my cry and suddenly #RyanPotterForTimDrake came into existence: #RyanPotterForTimDrake because the DCEU needs Robin … Continue reading

Dear Mark Ruffalo: “Woke” You Are Not

And yes, I wrote that as well as said that in my best Yoda voice. As you can tell by these last couple of posts, this weekend was an interesting one. To say the least. Lena Dunham wildin. The Orange One™ skittering into Black churches. And then, Mark Ruffalo…going full Well-Meaning Chet™. “What he do, … Continue reading

Zendaya’s Casting as Mary Jane Watson Proves It’s Never Just About “Canon”

So this past weekend, I spent all my time collecting a bunch of Chet™ tears as well as the tears of his nerdy cousin Doug™. Why was I doing this? Well, here’s the thing: Ya girl Mary Jane Watson…is now Black. That’s right. Marvel recently announced that Zendaya Coleman is going to be playing the … Continue reading

Ghostbusters Review: Leslie Jones, You Deserve Better

I like to keep y’all gagging for more. So every 6 months or so, I swing by the Zoo with a sarcastic review of some mediocre movie I’ve had the displeasure of watching. Today, ladies and gents, that movie is Ghostbusters. Not the original, obviously. No…unfortunately, it’s the crappy remake. Melissa McCarthy (ew), Kate McKinnon … Continue reading
