"The movie establishes that there are no white saviours there to make things better. Belle is forced to do that for herself, and it’s her journey in educating herself and trying to convince her chief justice uncle to vote against the legality of the slave trade that makes the film more fascinating than most films in this genre." — Zeba Blay, TIFF 2013 Review on Belle.
- ME ON THURSDAY: I must remember to buy ibuprofen tomorrow before my monthly scheduled migraine arrives!
- ME ON FRIDAY: Thank goodness I have just bought this ibuprofen in time and the migraine isn't here yet!
- ME ON SATURDAY: Why do I feel so crappy, depressed, emotional, mildly queasy, and headachey???? -- oh right.

Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole.
‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.- See more at: http://www.gaystarnews.com/article/russian-gay-couple-marries-most-fierce-way-possible-through-loophole210814#sthash.kpKalSrr.dpuf
