Twitter Web App : By declaring organizing a privilege one is reinforcing the unhealthy and patronizing organizing cultures that plague much of the left, not pushing back against it.

Twitter Web App : The reason Breaking bad was appealing to it's white collar audience is it was basically the fax machine scene from Office Space continued out for 60 TV episodes.

Twitter Web App : Can someone who knows about breaking bad tell me what skylar does to get hated? i forgot twitter.com/mclumpen/statu…

Twitter Web App : without anything to flesh it out im just going to say that they see it as she wants to "re-emasculate" him and he hates his former, feminized postion (teacher??) and so its a hatred of the feminine both individually (skylar) and more generally (walt's former way of life)

Twitter Web App : like i forget what skylar actually does that people decide to hate her for but im sure you could say something more incisive about misogyny there

Twitter Web App : thats how they set it up for the viewership to identify with walt no matter how far he goes & hate skylar, who's misdeeds pale in comparison. Ppl ate it up. I forgot like most of what I watched and some of it I just read wikipedia so maybe someone can fill in blanks lol

Twitter Web App : After his break, skylar represents the imposition of his former middle class life. She's already a "nagging wife" and worse, she's standing in conflict not just with walt, but with this viewer's desire to live out their sublimated fantasies via him.

Twitter Web App : Walter breaks from his middle class life by acting out his impulses. Rage, emotion, violence. These moments are deeply cathartic for him and what's more, they start to earn him the respect and recognition he is denied in his repressive everyday life as a school teacher & husband.

Twitter Web App : These moments are deeply rooted in walters class. The characters who emasculate him are proletarian, uncaring about the middle class social norms of respectability that prevents walter from expressing himself. They set the stage for walter's break from his white collar life

Twitter Web App : One element of the show people tend to forget is that early on, there are a these moments where walter experiences these little humiliations, emasculations. Someone cuts him in line, someone insults him at the gas station. He seethes with rage at his impotence and cornyness.

Twitter Web App : What if we saw this show as a attempt to see just how depraved a fantasy could appeal to the viewership, who have become resigned to boring middle class lives. What sort of dark impulses have that type of life created. Maybe the true villain of the show are the viewers.

Twitter Web App : I feel like it really says a lot about breaking bad people that this is a common position. Even by his own admission, walter white is living out a selfish fantasy at the expense of everyone around him. But skylar is hated for mildly impeding him? twitter.com/Bankslvrd/stat…

Twitter Web App : and dont forget about us muscle milk heifers too!!! twitter.com/gr00se/status/…

Twitter Web App : Can I just say that Robby Takac's voice has only gotten sexier with old age

Twitter Web App : This makes me see red. We knew this was coming, we insisted that a rent moratorium was needed (not just a rent freeze). The USA makes me sick twitter.com/brian_noname/s…

Twitter Web App : Kanye wrote one tweet about running for president and people who see themselves as serious political people are still in the situation room quarterbacking about it two whole ass days later like it's a serious campaign. Dudes about to release a album or some shoes probably
