Even if you have mixed feelings about The Help, there’s a good reason to applaud the film’s success. Supposedly, it’s confirmed the box office viability of a radical new genre: “Chick flicks” with a bit of substance.


Mixed feelings?! “Chick flicks with a bit of substance”?! Yeah, if by substance you mean uncritical White Supremacy, yes. Who writes this? And more importantly, what exactly is the purpose of such shallow commentary?!

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
