Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Stop Asking “Is This Feminist?”

"Don’t ask 'is this feminist?' as a means of giving yourself permission to like something. Media is designed to elicit an emotional response. You are not a bad person for having an emotional response to problematic media; you are not being attacked if someone examines the racial politics of your favorite movie. Media criticism is not about you." Lindsay Ellis gets it, of course. #link
