A degree in Kardashianism. THIS IS VERY VERY IMPORTANT!

Sociology student gets a First for dissertation on Kardashians
The Register

Synopsis: After a binge watch, it is determined that the Kardashians are not advancing the cause of feminism.


...

An earlier report on Cummings-Cove’s dissertation noted that she argued “The postfeminist narrative they disseminate has potentially disastrous effects for gender equality on a huge scale, and so we have to ask whether the postfeminist fairy-tale is one we want to be telling our daughters.”

“I used to watch it and be like 'Omg this is so great' and now I watch it while shouting, 'Crush the patriarchy!' It’s not ideal.”

...


Did I say feminism? I mean post-feminism. :lmao:

Oohkay, hmmm.

While there I found this article about how real vampires are afraid to "come out of the coffin". Do they just make this shite up or what?

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/07/08 ... new_study/

Genuine, blood-drinking vampires lead difficult unlives and are often reluctant to "come out of the coffin" and reveal the fact of their vampirism to social workers and other care professionals, a new study suggests.

The paper, titled Do we Always Practice What we Preach? Real Vampires' Fears of Coming out of the Coffin to Social Workers and Helping Professionals was published in Critical Social Work, a peer-reviewed journal based in Canada.

The study suggests that authentic vampires, as opposed to "lifestyle" vampires (read: goths) are "distrustful of social workers and helping professionals and preferred to 'stay in the coffin' for fear of being misunderstood, labelled, and potentially having to face severe repercussions to their lives".

You don't think I retire to a (* shudder *) moldy, stinky, cramped coffin, do you?
