Jon Bokenkamp speaking about the use of music on “The Blacklist”
Keep on Jon, because the music has been pretty badass. Love the Pearl Jam numbers.
this is fantastic work! nicely done
Leading cause of murder: murderers
In response to your hashtags, you’ve missed the point entirely. The point is that the fault does not lie with the victim but 100% with the rapist. Which is not a popular sentiment among people, mostly males but not only males, who moronically think there are somehow levels of rape and rape that isn’t really rape because maybe the victim did/said/was/wore something. Victim-blaming is a huge problem, and a chart like this is a handy visual aid meant to tell people who’ve been sexually assaulted that it’s not their fault, and to dispel the idea in others that some or all of the blame should go on the victim under certain circumstances.
Also, rape culture and the illegality of rape have as much to do with each other as racism and the illegality of discriminating based on race.
Thank you for the response. What is your definition of a rape culture, if you don’t mind me asking?
I find it informative to look at the number of rapes committed in the past few decades— notably, the number has declined — you can check out these BJS stats if you want. http://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/fvsv9410.pdf
I don’t know what to say about victim blaming, other than if the people you are friends with blame victims, then perhaps new friends are warranted :) I don’t have any friends or acquaintances that believe that. It’s interesting to me that hardened criminals are disgusted by rapists. One might suppose that in a so-called rape culture, if anyone would be all right with rape, surely convicted felons wouldn’t have any problem with it at all.
I know these concepts and my viewpoints are hardly popular here on tumblr (and because I’m here for the Blacklist, I try to stick to Blacklist-related topics), but I do enjoy thoughtful, civil discussions about more serious topics. I appreciate being able to talk, and to understand other viewpoints. Always feel free to pm and talk privately if you want.
….and Tom Keen gives zero fucks
If he wasn’t such a slimy douche, he’d be so attractive.
*gasps* how dare you! lol, it says too much about me that I didn’t find him remotely attractive until he straight up murdered somebody. Then I was like, yeah, team badass tom keen! Tom’s the man. Tom’s actually hot. Don’t die, Tom! I need help.
[…] Even if he is incredibly frustrating, even if it goes against all of her intuitions, there’s this sort of counter-intuitive feeling that she has that still continues. When she has no place to go, she often shows up on his doorstep. And I think in a strange way, the more important relationship will be their present relationship. (full quote by roominthecastle)James Spader at the SDCC panel of “The Blacklist” (2014)
Not sure about this announcement. The show’s quality goes down when Liz and Red aren’t together, and the addition of a new character will most likely result in less screen time for our two leads.
From Deadline [X]:
While he didn’t reveal any more details of the former Weedsstar’s involvement on the Blacklist, EP/creator Jon Bokenkamp described the character as “completely tied to Reddington.”
The actual daughter
, who isn’t Elizabeth Keen?
I vomited in my mouth at the ‘completely tied to Red’ part! Nobody better mess with my ship!!
I don’t mind finding out about steamy past relationships red USED to have… Like Pratt… Think finding out women everywhere fall for him makes him even more appealing… As long as his eyes are now just for Lizzie.
Possible Spoilers Wasn’t there supposed to be some sort of Ziva David/Mossad agent character who was a past fling of Red’s? Is this her? Anyway, I like Mary Louise Parker, she’s a good actress, and anybody that brings serious acting chops to the table is fine by me.
