No, I’d say the show does a great job of representing the typical 18-34 male with Larry, with his constant need for validation, attention, and the world to revolve around him.

not to mention Bennet’s quest to prove that he’s a man, Pornstache’s overcompensation that disguises his vulnerability, Healy’s struggle to make positive change that is frustrated by his need to be loved by a woman, and Caputo’s exploration of his desire to control the world around him and whether or not he wants to do that. men are quite accurately represented in the show, the only issue male viewers seem to have is that these men display the warped nature of man’s dominance, and the idea that their superiority is not perfect and noble is offensive.

Let’s pretend for a second that this male writer with his hurt feelings is right, and men are unfairly or inadequately represented on Orange Is the New Black. Even if this were true (which the above comments pretty much show it is not), there are literally hundreds of shows with well-developed, complex male characters, and many of these are shows where women are underrepresented, marginalized, stereotyped, or so static that they may as well be replaced with a sexy lamp — yet that doesn’t seem to stop producers from making another season of White Dudes In Suits.Can you please maybe go watch one of those and just let us have this ONE SHOW about a fucking WOMEN’S prison without wringing your hands and shrieking “BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MENNNNNN”

What is it with hockey players and fishing?

what the fuck kind of water monsters are you breeding in canada.

for serious is that like a mutated swamp giant barracuda or something WHY WOULD YOU BE IN WATER OUT OF WHICH YOU JUST PULLED THAT TERROR

Canada. We need to talk about this. You’ve never mentioned the fact that you have GIANT TERRIFYING GIANT FISH OF TERROR and now I want to know what other weird fauna you’re hiding. 
DON’T PULL AN AUSTRALIA ON ME HERE CANADA. 

hello friends, this is a sturgeon; fairly average size for one of those. In fact a lot of fish you eat are actually quite huge — a halibut for example is often around 4ft long and over 200 lbs. I can’t explain why someone would wear a silver chain with a pair of chest waders though.

I WAS JUST AT WAL-MART AND THEN

  • Little boy: Mommy, why is Wonder Woman not wearing any pants?
  • The Mom: Because Wonder Woman has amazing thighs and she could crush men with them if they insult her.
  • Little Boy: I wanna be Wonder Woman.
  • The Mom: Don't we all.

Fluttering wings leave lacy trails as moths beat their way to a floodlight on a rural Ontario lawn. The midsummer night’s exposure, held for 20 seconds, captured some of the hundreds of insects engaged in a nocturnal swarm.

stupid moths STAY AWAY FROM MY WOOL

By copyrighting his property as an artwork, he has prevented oil companies from drilling on it.

Peter Von Tiesenhausen has developed artworks all over his property in northern Alberta.  There’s a boat woven from sticks that is gradually being reclaimed by the land; there is a fence that he adds to each year of his life, and there are many “watching” trees, with eyes scored into their bark.

Oil interests pester him continually about drilling on his land.  His repeated rebuffing of their advances lead them to move toward arbitration.  They made it very clear that he only owned the top 6 inches of soil, and they had rights to anything underneath.  He then, off the top of his head, threatened them that he would sue damages if they disturbed his 6 inches, for the entire property is an artwork.  Any disturbance would compromise the work, and he would sue.

Immediately after that meeting, he called a lawyer (who is also an art collector) and asked if his intuitive threat would actually hold legally.  The lawyer visited, saw the scope of the work on the property, and wrote a document protecting the artwork.

The oil companies have kept their distance ever since.

This is but one example of Peter’s ability to negotiate quickly on his feet, and to find solutions that defy expectations.

I feel like this is really important.
