WEEKEND READING LIST: Witches, whitewashing, International Women’s Day

  • Oh look the Hollywood remake of Ghost in the Shell cast an actual Asian actor. Still whitewashed as all get out though. Still mad about it. [Angry Asian Man]
  • The new all-lady Ghostbusters remake has been contentious right from the start, and while a lot of the criticism amounts to garden variety manchildren blubbering about cooties, Racialicious has some very valid concerns about Leslie Jones’s character, who is the only woman of colour, and the only Ghostbuster without a scientific background.
  • A musical ode to the clitoris that you didn’t know you wanted, but now must see. [Refinery29]
  • The New York Public Library, an institution that clearly knows what the people want, has a companion reading and resource list for the film The Witch.
  • Witch, queen, mom: fairytale lessons for surviving borderline parents.” [The Establishment]
  • Bitch has a great roundup of magical girl zines, and I’m not just saying that because I stumbled across the first one on the list, Queer Sailor Moon Fan Fiction Saved My Life, while in a doctor’s office waiting room (but also I kind of am).
  • Nola and the Clones is an independent Irish film about a young homeless sex worker. All the men Nola encounters bear a striking resemblance, and it’s that sort of magic realism that lends itself well to a movie that looks truly unique (and is available in its entirety online).
  • Janelle Monáe will be co-starring in a movie about the women behind the American space program! Omg omg omg! [io9]
  • International Women’s Day: why women can thrive in sci-fi.” [BBC]
  • I really wanted to give JK Rowling the benefit of the doubt when it came to her interpretation of North American magic, but as Adrienne Keene of Native Appropriations lays out thoroughly, she really missed the mark. The Mary Sue, quoting Keene, is similarly unimpressed.
