The politics of abortion in fiction

As more and more red states attempt to outlaw a woman’s right to choose an abortion, strategies to resist these new laws are drawing attention, especially within the entertainment community. Most of the focus has been centered on Georgia after HB 481, given the level of film and television production done in the state due to tax incentives. The majority of Marvel Studio’s MCU films have, at least in part, been filmed in Georgia. Cartoon Network, and its Adult Swim lineup of shows such as Rick & Morty, Robot Chicken, The Venture Bros., etc., is headquartered out of Atlanta. The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, Ozark, and more are all filmed in Georgia, creating about 100,000 jobs and $4.6 billion in wages. Last year, conservatives in Georgia engendered widespread backlash when they attempted to allow discrimination against LGBT couples in the realms of adoption and foster care if done out of “religious belief,” which led companies such as Disney, Apple, Fox, Time Warner, Netflix, the NFL, and Sony to threaten pulling money out of the state if it became law. HB 481 has put Hollywood productions back in the same spot of deciding how to respond, especially with there now being labor considerations since the law potentially makes female crew members working in Georgia subject to a second-degree murder charge if they suffer a miscarriage during a shoot. However, this time around there’s also been considerably more debate over whether an economic boycott of the state is the best strategy. While there are dozens of actors, performers, and producers vowing not to work in Georgia, unlike with LGBT discrimination, so far none of the major studios are threatening to leave over the abortion politics in the state. Others have argued a boycott would “hurt workers who didn’t ask for women’s bodily autonomy to be stripped and don’t support this regressive policy,” and some producers are justifying staying in the state by saying they’ve been contacted by “people locally, and specifically women of color, who are saying, ‘Don't leave us.’” A third option is what Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams have decided to do, wherein “100 percent of the episodic fees” for their Georgia-based television production will be donated to the ACLU of Georgia and Fair Fight Georgia, the voting reform group of former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams who has asked the industry for support on the ground to “transform the political system.” While thinking about how Hollywood should respond to how abortion is treated here in the real world, I thought it might be interesting to look at how it has been treated in the not-so-real worlds of film and television. A common criticism of how American culture treats sex in media is how people have a much lower threshold for watching someone’s head being cut off than seeing naked bodies. The history of film and television has been one where depictions and discussions of sex had to be done obliquely at times (e.g., married couples with double beds), created a system which ignored the existence of significant parts of the populace or turned their sexual desires into stereotypes, and has long been the subject of controversy over concepts of objectification, body image, and the fair treatment of women and women’s issues both in front of and behind the camera. Abortion is an aspect of those women’s issues, since one in four women will have an abortion before the age of 45, but it’s also an issue which can make even people who claim to be pro-choice uncomfortable in either acknowledging or discussing the topic. So it’s interesting to see how it has been handled over the years as a story concept in fiction.

Game of Thrones 8.6: 'The Iron Throne'

And now our watching has ended. Sorry, I believe that joke was a required feature of any recap of The Game of Thrones finale. But with that out of the way, let me say this: the series got a very good finish. Maybe even a great one. Not a stupendously happy ending, or an ending that fulfilled the wishes of every fan. Or any fan. Because a really good ending doesn’t do those things. A really good ending does what a good beginning does, or a good middle; it serves the story in a way that moves the plot, creates fresh insights into the characters, and challenges the viewer. I was fortunate enough to learn seven-point story structure from science fiction writer, critic, and editor Algis Budrys. Most of the points are familiar to anyone who ever took a writing course, but Algis was particularly keen on point seven. That’s the point that happens after the climax of the book or film. The thing that happens when the hero is victorious. Or dead. Or shipped off to the North to reunite with a very good boy. It’s the part where the wookie roars at the medal ceremony. Or the camera pans around Rose’s room to show the artifacts of a life well-lived. Or some townie says “Who was that masked man?” Validation is the part of the story that shows that what you just watched or read fit into a larger picture, has ramifications that will echo, and was worth your valuable time. Without validation, a story just ends. With validation, it ends well. And Game of Thrones ended well. Let’s walk through it, then we’ll come back for a talk over one last mug of something warm and mulled ladled up in a heavy clay mug. And you can throw the mug at me if you like. The last episode of Game of Thrones had, for most of the 80-plus minutes it was on screen, something that had been completely absent for much of this season—pacing. In several scenes, particularly those involving Tyrion, the character was allowed to not just pass through the moment, but react to it. The viewer’s experience of the scene is informed because we get the chance to see the value that it has for those involved. That certainly wasn’t true for the entire episode, particularly the point where everything takes a multi-week time warp followed by a three-minute overthrow of 8,000 years of government and social structure. But there are moments in “The Iron Throne” where the show takes a moment to breathe. If only the whole season had been that way.

Mitch McConnell is reveling in destroying our democracy, and Politico is lionizing him for it

Because politics and government are just one big game to Politico, here's a story from Burgess Everett reveling in how much Mitch McConnell is enjoying destroying government. There isn't one word about the damage the «cartoon villain» is inflicting on all of the institutions of the federal government, but plenty about how much fun he's having doing it. Everett tell us that «he’s loving every minute of it,» and quotes him saying «'We need to have a little fun in this business. […] I used to call myself Darth Vader when I was back in the campaign finance wars.» Ha ha ha ha, wasn't it great when he was fighting to sell Congress to unaccountable corporations and billionaires? And «when he hears liberals complain about him killing their priorities on health care, the environment and gun control, McConnell can't help but crack a smile.» Because it's so much fun to watch people die needlessly when you can stop it! McConnell «has a wry and self-deprecating sense of humor, according to senators and aides,» Everett reports. That's in contrast to all those Democratic scolds who say things like «The fact is, he has changed the Senate in ways that I think may never be the same.» That's Sen. Dick Durbin. Or Sen. Chuck Schumer, the minority leader, who says «No one should be proud of being the Grim Reaper of middle-class legislation that Americans desperately need.» Look at those wet blankets who don't know how to give a good quote to Politico. Meanwhile, the Senate has done almost nothing in the way of legislating, including responding to ongoing national disasters that are racking up billions in costs to states. On the Senate calendar Monday: advancing another circuit court judge, this one to the 9th, the court that has been most steadfast in resisting Trump's unconstitutional efforts and one that is at the verge of flipping to be controlled by Trump-friendly judges. He'll be the second California judge advanced over the objections of the state's Democratic senators, and the fifth judge in history to be confirmed under those circumstance, all of them in the past month. But, you know, Darth Vader's having fun doing it, so that's all that really matters, right?

National Public Radio wants you to know that Trump lovers still love Trump, even when it hurts them

Look, National Public Radio. You're not going to get Republicans behind providing public funding for media, even if you embarrass yourself with a headline like this: «In Trump's Trade War, Americans Will Be Asked To Show Economic Patriotism.» So, “economic patriotism” is the new euphemism for suffering needlessly thanks to a new and stupid war? NPR is apparently vying with The New York Times to be the national news outlet that crawls deepest inside the butts of Donald Trump's «forgotten men and women,» those white, working-class voters who are totally not all about his racism. Case in point: Bob Best, who says he is «not a big tariff guy. I'm a free trade guy,» and whose heating and air conditioning company has been directly hit by the steel and aluminum tariffs. «But sometimes when the bully just doesn't listen,» he says, «you've got to punch him in the mouth. And that's what he's doing.» More people will have to be like Best, NPR says, and Trump is going to have «appeal to Americans' national pride, and even their patriotism, to succeed in leveling the playing field with China.» Or he could, you know, reverse the massive tax cuts that have only helped corporate America and invest that money in massive infrastructure plan that could create hundreds of thousands of good jobs; or invest in a new green economy which, again, would create jobs; or support a $15 minimum wage. There are so many more productive things Trump could do as president that wouldn't destabilize the global economy and would actually help American workers. All of which NPR could talk about. It could even interview experts, or people who don't support Trump. Instead, we hear from Rhonda Brooks, editor of Farm Journal, with this message: «They believe very strongly that this is a president who is — more than any president in recent history, actually — who's really been talking about farmers and at least acknowledging them and that he wants to help them.» And they leave the story at that. What a disservice to everyone who's ever donated to keep Morning Edition on the air.

Someone hacked Trump's United States Golfing Association account and began posting bad scores

The United States Golfing Association (USGA) is looking into a reported hack of their golfing databases. As Golfweek reported on Saturday, the USGA has a record of golfers’ scores and handicaps across the country, both professional and amateur. What made this recent cyber crime newsworthy was the fact that one well-known golf enthusiast’s account with the USGA began posting “suspiciously unflattering” scores. Donald Trump’s interest in golfing seems to only be rivaled by his interest in deluding himself and the world around him that he’s a truly gifted golfer.  Golfweek exclusively confirmed that the courses used in the fake scores were Trump National New York (100 and 101), Trump International in West Palm Beach (108), and the Cochise Course at Desert Mountain in Scottsdale, Arizona.  As Golfweek points out, Trump himself has had a 2.8 handicap “that is widely regarded as excessively flattering.” However, since becoming president, Trump’s scores have not appeared on the—GHIN with one exception, which is also believed to be suspicious as it was a very low score, well below the course’s average. According to NPR, according to Trump’s own imagination, his scores have always been in the 70s and 80s, though many people question the veracity of those scores too, but for different reasons.
