Totally satisfied.

Went to see Salt last night. You should also see it, ASAP. Angelina Jolie is in top form. Talented and sexy, as always, she kicked major fucking ass in this movie.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned?

You better fucking believe it!

I love that this notion is being celebrated by so many kick-ass women in the industry right now. Think women are merely pieces of furniture who sit on the sidelines and let the men around them make decisions for them? Think again. We've got The Bride Who Wore Black, out for revenge against the men who have wronged her. We've got The Black Mamba destroying everyone in the way of getting to her daughter. We've got Mary-Ann and Wanda working out a plan, 'cause Earl has to die. We've got Honey B breaking Gaga out of jail, and together shattering societal perceptions, perpetuated by mainstream media, of what women are and are not capable of. We've got Evelyn Salt toting whip-like intelligence and phallic symbols galore, wearing a gut-wrenching, fierce expression of you should not have done that; now you get to die.

This movie hit home for me in a very profound way. Mere hours before I saw it, I sat with one of my best friends for quite some time, listening to her describe the relationship she's trapped in, the relationship she wants to get out of but is terrified to try. I listened, relieved that she's no longer in denial, and my heart ached.

And you know what? I wanted, in the moment, to do some serious damage to the man who has manipulated her into believing that she has no power in their relationship. I cannot pretend; I want to fucking kill the asshole for exerting his control over my best friend, for emotionally abusing her with shouted insults and disparaging comments only to pull a 360 and apologize profusely with bullshit proclamations of love, time and time again. I want to pull an Evelyn Salt on his ass, just to get him out of her life for good. I want my healthy, beautiful, whole best friend back, and right now that piece of shit excuse of a man has control of her.

But the truth is that she can do it herself. She is a strong, capable woman with power in every sense of the word, and she has to be the one to remove this parasite from her life. And she will. I have no doubt about that.

Because we women are powerful: physically, mentally, emotionally. We bounce back. We take control of our own lives. If you want proof that strong women exist everywhere, all you gotta do is look around. The evidence is overwhelming.

An Open Letter to Chris Brown:


So, I just found this article that explained that you, Chris Brown, have taken a plea to your somehow still existent fanbase, asking for their help in getting your music back on the radio. I, for one, was quite happy when my local radio station boycotted your music in support of Rihanna, and I would not like to see that decision reversed.

Look, dude. You beat Rihanna. Not just once. This wasn't an on-the-whim slap across the face or a shove (both of which would be unacceptable as well, in my opinion); you punched her multiple times, bit her, attempted to strangle her before she was able to escape, and left her stranded on the side of the road, beaten and bloody with no way to get help. I seriously don't see how anyone could possibly want to listen to your music knowing all that; I feel physically sick to my stomach when I hear your voice and/or see your face. You gave one emotionless, long-after-the-fact apology, did not own up to what you did, came away from the trial with community fucking service, and now here you are, barely a year later, begging your fans to get your music back on the airwaves.

Listen up, moron. You have millions of dollars. What the fuck are you whining about? Go away! Disappear for five, maybe ten years. You're only 21 years old! People are still mad at you, and they haven't forgotten what you did. It's going to take more than a measly 12 months and too little too late apology to undo what you did, and frankly, the way you're handling all of this gives me the distinct impression that you are not really overly sorry about what you did to Rihanna except for the fact that you singlehandedly killed your career that night.

So, please. I am going to ask you nicely. Could you please go away?

And, because I don't feel like asking nicely, FUCK THE FUCK OFF!

-

And to the ridiculously ignorant Chris Brown fans who say:

-Oh, but he really is sorry, let's forgive and forget!
-Hey, Rihanna must have done something to provoke the attack...
-Chris Brown makes good music!
-Rihanna deserved what she got; she had it coming to her.

FOR THE GOOD OF HUMANKIND, DO NOT REPRODUCE AND SHUT THE FUCK UP.

Here's what I have to say to those bullshit comments:

-Chris Brown is not truly sorry for what he did to Rihanna. He is certainly not sorry enough. If he were, he wouldn't be worrying about his fucking music career. He'd be making up for what he's done by going around to high schools and talking to students about what he did and how negatively abuse effects relationships and people, and you know what? He'd go to fucking jail and do the time he should have done!
-LISTEN UP! It is NEVER OKAY to repeatedly punch and try to kill your boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse/significant other. Or ANYONE, for fuck's sake. Violence is never, ever acceptable. Do not support violence by supporting people who condone violence with their actions. Hold these people accountable for their behaviour.
-Being a good artist does not give you the right or privilege to hurt other people. It does not give you immunity to be a complete fucking asshole, or worse, a CRIMINAL. Come on. Don't be a fuck-up.
-If you believe that anyone deserves what Chris Brown did to Rihanna, you seriously need help. I will not even provide that bullshit with an argument. In North America we practice freedom of speech, but just because you CAN say something, doesn't mean you SHOULD. If you seriously believe that any individual in an abusive relationship deserves to be abused and has it coming to them, you are evil to the core.

Please don't support violence.



Sincerely,
Nikki
