"For the record, feminism by definition is: ‘The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.’
I started questioning gender-based assumptions when at eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not.When at 14 I started being sexualized by certain elements of the press.When at 15 my girlfriends started dropping out of their sports teams because they didn’t want to appear “muscly.”When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings.I decided I was a feminist and this seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Apparently I am among the ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men and, unattractive.
Why is the word such an uncomfortable one?”

  • Castle fans: vote like crazy so Castle/the cast win a lot of PCAs
  • Castle fans: buy a lot of season DVDs, the Nikki Heat books, other merchandise
  • Castle fans: tell others about this show so that the ratings go up every year...so much so that we're up to season SEVEN
  • Castle fans: basically do a ton of stuff that gives more attention to the show, which ultimately means more money for ABC
  • ABC: lol no promos, pics, or decent spoilers for you. don't worry...we'll promote EVERY OTHER SHOW. just not yours.
