  • Talk Back: K'naan & Self Censorship

    by FAANMail Published 1 year ago

    On December 8, 2012, Somali born Canadian hip hop artist K'naan wrote an Op Ed in the New York Times about how is record label (A&M/Octone Records) has pressured him to censor his message. In his powerful and honest essay, K'Naan questions the meaning of success. FAAN Mail responds to his words in this talk back. "I now suspect that packaging me as an idolized star to the pop market in America cannot work; while one can dumb down his lyrics, what one cannot do without being found out is hide his historical baggage." - K'NAAN Music credit: "People Like Me" by K'Naan. 2010 A&M/Octone. Check out K'Naan here: http://www.knaanmusic.com/ FAAN Mail (Fostering Activism and Alternatives Now!) is a media literacy/activist project formed by women of color and based in Philadelphia.

  • Feminist Review: Halo 3: ODST (Part 1: Sadie's Story)

    by GoingRampant Published 1 year ago

    A feminist analytical review of Halo 3: ODST. The first part looks at Sadie's Story, the audio drama backstory hidden in the terminals found throughout the game. Sadie Endesha fights against a world going to hell to rescue her father in a tragedy based loosely on Dante's Inferno. While the character is pretty cool, the story (like the main game) suffers from the Smurfette Principle trope.

  • Dollhouse Is Feminist (Part 23: 2x07)

    by GoingRampant Published 1 year ago

    A feminist analytical review of Dollhouse season two episode seven, "Meet Jane Doe". Rossum is so obviously evil that I compare it to the villains of The Pet, Ballard makes a responsible (feminist) choice regarding his romance with Echo, and Adelle's masculine mode of dress being used to signal her evil is problematic, among other things.
