Ok, you're invoking bullshit concepts cooked up by ideologically possessed "scholars" who may as well be conspiracy theorists, which means I'm out of this conversation.
One last thing though: I know you Woke Folk believe you're on the "right side of history" but constantly waging war artists and creators you think are "problematic", but keep in mind that history is never kind to those who support the silencing of others. Nobody today applauds the upset parents who threw away their children's Harry Potter books; nobody today applauds religious nutcases who went after heavy metal; nobody today applauds the police officers who arrested Lenny Bruce for obscenity; and nobody today applauds Nazis for burning books.
I think you're phenomenally wrong on these matters, but when the mob comes for you, I'll still defend you.
Enjoy your conformity.
Firebrand actress and former mixed martial artist Gina Carano was recently canned by Disney/Lucasfilm from her role on the popular Star Wars series The Mandalorian, and will not be returning to any other Star Wars project in the future. To a loud ’n’ fragile few, this punishment fit the crime like a glove.
Her firing came after she shared a social media post about how the Nazi party convinced German citizens to hate their neighbors simply for being Jews, and made the point that this is not much different than hating someone today for having different political views. This post…
Because of some major life shakeups I’m currently going through (don’t worry, they’re positive shakeups), the Reckless Muse will take some time off from raising necessary hell for at least a month or so.
There might be an article or two that leaks out, should I be attacked by a crazed bout of inspiration or a brief bit of free time, but for the next 6–8 weeks, don’t expect too much content from the publication.
But rest assured that the Reckless Muse is by no means surrendering in her fight against the whiny menace of political correctness, and will come…
Life itself is an eternal wellspring of story ideas, an endless source of material to be molded into tales that provoke, excite, frighten, and delight, long after pen is lifted from page.
However, no matter how much inspiration can be derived from our daily successes and failures, it’s all for naught if we fail in our dreamer’s duty to properly elevate the debris of existence into something profound and engaging.
It’s for this reason that the eons-old literary adage of “write what you know” should remain a vital part of the writer’s process — but only if it’s utilized properly.
In this week’s Reckless Museletter, kick the year off with some hellacious creative goals; Sherlock Holmes is problematic; some biting political satire; and more.
It’s still not too late to figure out how to kick your artistic career in the ass and show the world what you can do, so how about us creative folk give 2020 a heroic middle finger, and attack 2021 with a ferocious artistry that scares angels and makes demons proud? Read the story here.
Because today’s pop culture isn’t offensive enough, it’s incumbent upon us to dig up the corpses of literature’s past to shame them into the Submission of the Socially Just. Now THAT’S how you progress.
Sherlock Holmes is the latest fictional character to be molested by the Woke Gestapo, and the person leading the charge is Ashley Morgan, a feminist academic and Masculinities Scholar (whatever the fuck that is) at Cardiff Metropolitan University, a pink-haired feminist whose Twitter bio proudly proclaims that she is “researching masculinity to overcome feelings of oppression”. …
with the madness
Armed with wayward minds and a rabid desire to play with fire, artists are of a manic breed that can’t be easily disciplined by outside forces. Because of this bone-deep deviance, those who listen to that clarion call to create are often known to adopt some bizarre habits to bring their visions to life — that is, if they didn’t come screaming into this world with those habits already built in.
We’ve all heard these stories — actors going to extreme lengths to prepare…
2020 has been a shitty year for pretty much all of us.
But one of the great qualities of artists is their ability to transform tragedy and turmoil into works that transcend.
So how about us creative folk give 2020 a heroic middle finger, and attack 2021 with a ferocious artistry that scares angels and makes demons proud?
If you’re ready to raise some necessary hell and make 2021 the Year of the Troublemaker, then start the new year with these three resolutions:
Some of the most interesting ideas are in forbidden lands. Don’t let propriety and political correctness stop…
I’ve been thinking about how being a public prude has been in season for the past several years, or for at least as long as I’ve been paying attention to the culture war that’s currently being waged by the woke and everyone else, and in my many Batman brooding sessions, I’ve discovered a weird truth that I think we all know but haven’t really excavated from the backwaters of our brains. This was one of those vicious, mean-drunk epiphanies that’s ready to fight dirty and kick your mind right in the balls.
That epiphany was this:
Fear and offense are…
Last October, I published an article slamming the King County Library System in Washington state for holding racially segregated “DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) Sessions” — one for “People of Color” and one for “People Who are White”, which you can marvel at here:
Below is the image that made the rounds on social media and prompted me to write the article in the first place:
