Being feminist BFFs sort of equates to being "good" BFFs. A lot of toxic behavior in female friendships is conditioned by a cultural history of systematically teaching women to believe certain things about themselves. Among these things is that a woman's primary value is her looks, that women are in competition with and thus under constant threat from other women, and that women are catty, manipulative and "b*tchy".
Fully understanding that you were raised by a feminist doesn't mean that your mother had to be Gloria Steinem. Feminism doesn't always need to be explicit; it could be as simple as having a parent who taught you that you, as a woman, were equal to any man. Equality between the sexes is the basic tenet of feminism, and if you were raised believing in that then you were raised by a feminist.
Prepare to see the most terrifying thing you're ever going to see: a poorly composited video of grown men dressed as giant babies jamming out. Yeah, Dave Davidson and Nicky Shin are here to wreck your day. This video is every bit "the stuff of nightmares" as it sounds. You know those giant crying baby masks—they're the stuff OF YOUR ACTUAL NIGHTMARES. They're the guys that chase you through Times Square if you accidentally turn the wrong corner shaking their giant rattles at you.
It was of the few times in cinema I haven’t had to watch women face the ultimatum of love vs self. And the only film I think in which the men around them understood that they shouldn’t have to make that decision.
I’ve been watching white women in movies do anything for love since I was a kid. When I have daughters I will want them to grow up watching the strong WoC in Black Panther who refused to compromise their vision for men, and their men who respectfully supported those visions.
I thought a lot of things about Black Panther, most of them good. One of them was how it’s the only blockbuster movie I can think of in which grown men cry every time they show emotion. That was a revelation.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
