Re: “Radical Brownies: The Most Inspiring Young Women You've Ever Seen

"Mike Brown. He was shot because he didn’t do nothing. Only the police officer shot him because of his skin color.”

This is what one of the girl scouts said at a community meeting. This is what they are being taught. This is child abuse. These kids don't even have a chance to develop their own point of view.

Re: “Revenge Porn: What to Do?

There is one thing that a friend of mine used to prevent dealing with revenge porn is a unique software to scan, detect and delete porn called Porn Terminator. Erasing the porn needs planning before breaking up but is the smart thing to do. Porn Terminator can be found at:

http://www.pornterminator.com

Hope this helps others.

Re: “Funny Escapism Never Goes Out of Style

I did not find the comment about the same-sex couple homophobic at all. As a gay male, I was actually surprised the line was written and found it funny. I thought it was ahead of its time. Also, let us not forget the "It's Pat" sketch on SNL. Not to mention all the other "crazy" people that were mentioned that live in the same apartment building. I found the play, while sitcomie, reminded me of my spouse and me...I am married to a Paul. And the line "even when I didn't like you...I still loved you" made me tear up...ok I am a crier :) Good review.

Re: “Artists Create Two-Way Video Portal for Oaklanders to Meet Their Neighbors

"buffered by increasing racial and economic segregation that allows for erasure of difference. It has happened all over, but especially in Oakland."

I'm continually dismayed at how much bu__sh__ is perpetuated about Oakland especially by people who claim to be wanting to protect and nurture this wonderful place. It's not especially happening in Oakland -Oakland is the single most integrated city in the United States.

Re: “Artists Create Two-Way Video Portal for Oaklanders to Meet Their Neighbors

"Cranky Rockridge residents were bothered by the unexplained noise, and pedestrians in East Oakland were wary of the increased surveillance..."

This alone is a great summary of the differences between these neighborhoods.

Re: “Artists Create Two-Way Video Portal for Oaklanders to Meet Their Neighbors

Hello,
Maybe because the screens are important as it is and there is nothing that can be compared with the video os one big and one small as the quality can be managed.Also the video can be used in a good chat as the SAM and http://www.videochatfun.com/ confimed it.
Cheers.

Re: “Eleanor Roosevelt's Great Lesbian Love Affair

Let's hope the run is extended at the Berkeley City Club. A second wind on the East Coast would be even better!

Re: “The Sexism of the Theater World

3Girls Theatre is another (new) local company working on this problem. Their whole mission revolves around putting work by women onstage.

Re: “The Sexism of the Theater World

About 80% of the statue awards, given by BayAreaDanceWatch, go to women – about the same percentage breakdown of female local dancers performing in SF Bay dance scene. Some of the awards are for theater and acting as well. We are especially happy about that 80% because most of the large dance companies in the US are run by men. So we’re doing our small part to help make up for that unevenness on the national scene by doing it here in the local scene. Most of the awards are given out at our annual event & our third one is this Jan 25th in SF entitled: LiveBlessay 2014 – An Evening Affair. One final note - BADw tried to award both actor/actress from Shotgun Players Bonnie & Clyde - but because they were out of the country last year we could not get it arranged. The play was that good & it had the best blending of multi-media with live performances I've ever seen.... BRAVEE to all there.... Jim Tobin, BADw....
