somebody DO SOMETHING

i’ve added this before but this is the most important story that i have
this was published in the vancouver sun like 2 years ago, and i remember reading the paper after class while my sister was watching tv or something, and i burst out laughing when i read the headline. and so im tell her to look, and show her the article and she says “what’s a rim job” and my dad looked up at me and we held eye contact for like. a whole minute and we just had a terrible moment where he knew that i knew what a rim job was, and i knew that he knew what a rim job was and now that’s a reality that we have to face together

that commentary was beautiful

M*A*S*H rewatch2x03 - ’Radar’s Report’

Cutting up a nurse is bad enough, but why the hell did he have to louse up my patient?”

I usually don’t add comments but I feel like we really need to talk about this show and how ahead of its time it was. These doctors helped anyone who came through, even ‘the enemy’ regardless of what the higher-ups would think. They confronted serious issues that are still relevant today like sexism, racism and homophobia.

Keep in mind that this was the early 70’s-80’s too. The writers had an incredibly hard time even getting the show on the air because of the way it often showed the military in a bad way, and represented people that weren’t white (even though the show had its fair share of middle aged white guys).  And while it’s been some time since I’ve watched the show, I do remember how well they represented a diverse group of people. They had complex, well-written POC that were rarely stereotyped. They had a FANTASTIC female lead whose character development  blows my mind. They had openly gay characters. They even had a cross dressing male character (although he could be problematic at times)

While I’m not saying that the show was never offensive (it had its moments), it was so ahead of its time in the way it focused on the major social issues of its time that are still present today. It’s powerful, well-written and just an overall amazing show that I’d recommend to anyone.
