The Social Network

The Social Network

The subject of this supposedly true story is in his late 20s, and obviously making an analysis of his life as it is now would make little sense, so The Social Network uses him solely as an icon to get across its messages. However, while the movie does a great job conveying these messages, they aren’t actually what the movie should have been about. Instead of addressing the current issues indicated by the title, it just uses timeless messages and didacticism so it can be praised by stodgy film critics. And that’s kind of lame.


Misfile is the kind of webcomic I don’t want to read… or at least I thought so until I read it. Most transgender comics turn into a) sexist nonsense, b) fetish fuel, or c) both. In fact, I’d say the majority are both. Misfile, with very few exceptions, manages to avoid these pitfalls. It actually gives a fairly realistic portrayal of the situation, and uses it effectively to tell an interesting story.
