Charles Dance in this interview.
It’s adorable how he doesn’t think he’s romantic lead material or particularly good-looking. Charlie, trust me, you play the romantic lead in my (and many other women’s) dreams.

This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy.
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.
I was so happy for a moment when I saw Meg realising she does matter only for her abusive father to shut her down again.
Can Marge and homer just adopt Meg?
You’ve all forgotten one very important episode. In this, Meg decides she won’t put up with their shit anymore, and just flips out at everybody, telling them exactly what she thinks of them. Because they now can’t get at Meg anymore, they all turn on themselves. Meg realises that her family is so dysfunctional that she has to be the lightning conductor for all their anger to stop them ripping themselves apart.
Don’t get me started on how fucked up that is. If they have to bully her to be happy she should just leave them to it.
You can tell I don’t like family guy.
Yeah, I fucking hate how Family Guy treats Meg. It’s not okay. And I think the reason so many people find it ‘funny’ is because they’re shitting on a teenage girl. And that’s considered humorous. It’s just so completely disgusting.
Are you guys actually analysing a comedy show for being ‘offensive???’

This should be posted in school hallways.
I’m unfollowing anyone who reblogs this without negative comments under it. This is such bullshit for so many reasons. A thousand times no. This implies male victims of rape don’t exist. It implies that virtually all men aren’t disgusted with rape, which they fucking are! It implies that most women don’t also find periods disgusting and that therefore any men who are grossed out by it are sexist. Fuck this shit!

Caring for women more than men is an act of misandry.
