300?

7 01 2013

Realized this is/would be my 300th post on 1000 Things We Hate.

Things are on the backburner as I get back into school.  I intend to keep on writing, but it’s hard to keep up when you’re in grad school.

Anyway, what better way to celebrate my 300th post than with one of the shittiest movies of the last ten years!?





Thanks for taking care of me…

Because you needed it.

By the way, I have no idea what the source is for this… but I find it hilarious!

She’s all like “mmmmhhhmmm bad decision.”  He’s like, “that’s right, cuddle my nipple.”

The Face

16 06 2012

My face when women (or other groups outside the white, male, and upper-class world we live in) are objectified in the media.

This becomes even more apparent when it happens in the form I love most: comic books.





Feminist Frequency or One Step Closer to Eliminating Sexism

12 06 2012

We here at 1000 Things We Hate pride ourselves on hating things.  Some of them are trivial like words or phrases while others are big things like Lindsay Lohan’s acting capabilities.

However, I’d like to remind everyone that most of our hate is in jest.  I mean, can you really take us seriously when we write a whole post on how the dolphin is such a useless animal?

So, it’s really upsetting to see some people engage in pure hate or trolling as you can observe in the reaction to Feminist Frequency’s Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a series of videos on sexism in videogames.  (Here’s Anita’s detailing of the YouTube response and the Wikipedia vandalism).

One of our place markers for 1000 Things We Hate will be a post on sexism in comics.  I’d like to expand that to sexism in general, but I’m most familiar with comics.  This post will upset many people as does my post on J. Scott Campbell.

I can take the heat.  People will probably not make as many terrible comments if they recognize that I’m a man which is an unfortunate luxury.  Though, people choose to ignore my statements that I am a man, and they assume that anyone writing a post on the plight of women in comics is a woman.  So, they say such things about how I need to shave my armpits and go get fucked.  I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a rape threat, but I’m sure it will happen at some point.

The sad thing is is that we’re still at a point in our culture where this happens.  I’d like to applaud Anita at Feminist Frequency as well as the many other people out there trying to effect change.

Because change needs to be made.





1000 Things We Hate #240: Mullet Dress

25 05 2012

Wait… wait just a second.  *cough* *choke* *splurtle*

Raughghumkumarrrghhhh

*wipes lips and puts down toilet seat*

Sorry about that you guys!  I think I just vomited two tons of bile!  Go me!

Let’s get serious for a momen… *cough* *cough* *Hrumm*

Okay, okay.  I’m good.

I, like very little of you, thought that mullets were a cool, retro thing (this is a lie).  They totally rocked it (with sliminess).  You could get the best of both worlds (war of the worlds): a slick, short front with a long, manly mane (I think I might throw up again).  They were the best things ever (I’m totally lying)!

And guess what!  They’re making a comeback in fashion!  Sure, it started out with the scene lady mullet, and now it has exited the realm of the indie obscure to the fashion industry’s dresses.

I love this image for so many reasons…

What is a mullet dress?  Well, it begins with a short skirt-like front and it ends with a dangling thing hanging out the back.  I suppose it’s a great way to show the front of your legs off, but to keep your back concealed for fear of having your butt hang out.  On the other hand, many of the dresses are strapless.  So, one wrong step may result in your pulling down the front of your dress and letting your breasts take a swim in the free world.

The strange thing about these dresses is how reminiscent they are to jelly fish.  IS IT BECAUSE THEY STING!? HAHAHAHAHAHAAA… I had to.  But really, there’s a reason as to why we don’t imitate sea life… it’s underwater…we’re above water.  Become a mermaid in the bedroom.

They’re impractical, a bad throwback to the past, revolting, and do not make much sense… SO BUY ONE.

Wow, those dresses are bad!  You can check out our many critiques of fashion at the MASTER LIST.  Or, just take a peek at a few of our top fashion posts…

 The ever wonderful LEGGINGS, the irritating BOOTS WITH SOCKS SHOWING, and the slightly cool but painfully upsetting FLOWER HEADBANDS.





And here’s another one…

Sorry for all of the gif dumps lately.  I just find them wildly hilarious.

Plus, crafting a full 1000 Things We Hate post takes time.  It’s simpler to keep the site going by posting an image or gif to keep you interested.  There’s an interim between quality posts, but at least you get some more content.

I promise we’ll be rocking more Hate posts soon.  Just have to get through finals and what not.

In the meantime, I highly encourage you to take a look at our MASTER LIST.  There you’ll find literally hundreds of posts about things that we – and maybe even you – hate.  So, join in on the fun!
