Swiffer features an interracial family in their recent commercial. Like it on YouTube to show support :-)
Yes. I saw this for the first time last week. I was going to post it myself. Thank You. Not only is it an IR/BW/WM, He is disabled and still wants to do the cleaning and swiffer products make that possible. I love it.
and the comments are disabled on this video, i wonder why.
positive representation of disabled parents and interracial families
waiting for the negative backlash in 4…3..2..
Plus it’s a dude who actually cleans instead of playing the part of the lazy, incompetent husband.
Win win win
ACK! This commercial is adorable!
Zack and Afi Rukavina.
He lost his arm to cancer, and has been trying to pursue an acting career.Wait this is a real family??
right? they seemed to have good chemistry and everything but i wasn’t sure, you never know with tv. i saw this commercial and thought it was cute!
Did you know that Crush is portrayed “high” because Sea Turtles actually eat jellyfish and the poisons inside the jelly doesn’t actually harm the turtle but instead intoxicates them much like marijuana does for humans.
i just thought it was because he was supposed to be a “surfer dude”

Verses from “Dream of the Red Chamber” in rhyme of Peking Opera

〖紅樓夢〗”A Dream of the Red Chamber (reprise)”
okay but i’m so fucking tired of this “fantasy/sci-fi is not important enough for academic society” bullshit
i’ve already seen people complaining about the blatant dislike for those genres at the oscars but
let me tell you about how when i went to AWP (an enormous writers/publishers conference last weekend) there were literally hundreds of publishers, small presses, large presses, university presses, literary journals, literary magazines, short zine publishers, on and on it filled the entire WA state convention center it was like as big as emerald city comic con
but you know what? i went through that whole place and i found ONE SINGLE EXHIBITOR WILLING TO PUBLISH ANYTHING BRANDED AS SCI-FI OR FANTASY LITERALLY ONE
because you ask these people about their favorite books and things like 1984 and brave new world and the left hand of darkness and the lord of the rings will come up
but modern fantasy/sci-fi? no that’s not literary enough, the regular people of the world like that stuff so it’s not elite enough for academics like us, it’s not relevant, it’s escapist and plot-driven, it doesn’t have anything important to SAY
sure those genres have been written elegantly before but anyone trying to write them now just wants to copy-cat the classics like chris paolini did with eragon
i am about the graduate from a creative writing program EMPHASIS IN FICTION WRITING at a university and i was never, in any of my writing classes, allowed to write in fantasy or sci-fi genres, my preferred genres in which i have FINISHED AND PUBLISHED A NOVEL ALREADY
because those genres are too plot-driven and if you write in them we will be entertained but not “pushed” or “challenged” so the professor is not interested in seeing that
i can list so many books that have pushed and challenged me with complex characterization, layered themes and storytelling elements, clever motifs and metaphors built into the soaring craft of the fiction itself - and all of these books HAVE BEEN GENRE FICTION
yes, including modern genre fiction, including books written in first-person or marketed to teens so that elitist academic types won’t pick them up but are you really going to try to tell me that there are no significant, important underlying literary themes in the hunger games? in harry potter? really?
GENRE HAS A PURPOSE ASIDE FROM SHEER MASS ENTERTAINMENT I AM SO MAD
Thank you so very, very much for summarizing my problems with maligned genre writing. Basically yes. All of this.
