Adrienne Truscott is best known for her controversial stand-up comedy debut, Asking For It. In the performance, Truscott wears very little — essentially just a bleach blonde wig, a blue mini dress, and a jacket. Performing with her privates out, she makes rape jokes. Yet unlike her male contemporaries (we’re looking at you, Daniel Tosh), Truscott’s rape jokes are not at the expense of the victim. “I tend to find, in particular, a dude making a lazy joke about the act of rape or wherein the...

The Zookeeper’s WifeDirected by Niki CaroOut March 31 In the past few years, “The Male Profession’s Female Relative”-style titles have become so common they’re often mocked (The Aviator’s Wife, The Hangman’s Daughter...)—but The Zookeeper’s Wife deserves your attention despite its name. Jessica Chastain stars as Antonina‭ ‬Żabińska, the titular zookeeper’s wife, but she’s a far more talented zookeeper than her husband, the gruff but well-meaning Jan (Johan Heldenbergh). The film opens in Warsaw, Poland, in 1939, and as soon as you see the date flash across...

At last weekend’s PaleyFest, Cuba Gooding Jr. took it upon himself to play the annoying kid on the playground and lift up his co-star Sarah Paulson’s dress. Like most women who are forced to “laugh it off” and “not make such a big deal” out of similar behavior, Paulson appeared to take his violation of her privacy and space in stride. Still, the Twittersphere was quick to wonder why a grown man in 2017 thought pulling such a stale move would be cute. While others have...

Dave Chappelle can be described as a polarizing figure. He is funny, he is very intelligent, and he has a sense of humor that has resonated with diverse audiences. I am generally a fan, but I was sincerely disappointed — and later, pissed — after watching part one of his new Netflix special. I should preface this by saying I was not only pissed off by the content, but I was also pissed because as a freelancer, I barely get the opportunity to watch TV!...

Let's play a game of "What if." Let's pretend that incredibly talented artist and burgeoning actress Janelle Monae was White — with strawberry blonde hair and the world at her feet.Well, for one — she would have been nominated for an Oscar for her role in Hidden Figures. It's painfully obvious that Octavia Spencer got the nod because the Academy felt pressure to nominate one of the gals, and since Spencer is the certified one of the bunch, they lazily went with her.There was no consideration...
