MR. TOM HIDDLESTON, PLEASE RESPECT OPHELIA Dear Mr. Hiddleston, I'm a girl that discovered you through the character of Loki and began to search for webpages and videos to know more about him and you. In some interviews I found that you said Loki "needs Prozac and a lot of therapy", "is a damaged psychopath", "is intelligent yet broken", "needs TLC". I took Prozac and went to a lot of therapists because of depression and anxiety and that really stunned and saddened me, because I felt my suffering publicly belittled and mocked through a character I wanted to love. Why "damaged psychopath"? To act upon anger, pain or ambition, to make wrong choices doesn't mean to be mentally ill. Why "intelligent yet broken"? Is "broken" synonym for "stupid"? You said...

Last year God revealed my purpose, so I am in the process of launching a career as a Cultural Inclusion Coach Consultant and Inspirational Social Change Speaker. I know without a doubt that this is my calling, because it was my career goal to become a psychologist, I studied for years and I was a year away from receiving my doctorate. That goal was put on hold indefinitely.  Moreover, I  suffer from anxiety and social anxiety, so pursuing a career in which public speaking is involved would not have been my choice, but God's plan overruled my own.   In the meantime, in order to launch my career, I need to seek those who will be willing to open doors that I am unable to access. Therefore, while conducting a Google search on starting my own business and other relevant information. I by...

Dear Walt Disney, Disneyland, a place that’s filled with joy, laughter, and known as the happiest place on earth. But, is it the happiest place if you end up being broke because you just spent $1000 on a pass? Since the day you created this land, more than 600 million guests have visited the resort. Last time we recorded, in 2012 averagely 44,000 visitors would come per day. I myself,have been a passholder for most of my life, 13 years exactly. Ever since I was a passholder, I enjoy your creativity and imagination: the fun attractions, thrilling rides, great parades with our favorite disney characters, and performances with booming fireworks. Disneyland is a place where I made fun memories with my friends and family. Sadly, this year is my first year not owning a pass, and I can...

An open letter to Avenged Sevenfold: Hello, this is one of your loyal fans. I've been listening to Avenged Sevenfold for about 7 years now. I’ve listened to every album you guys have put out, starting with Nightmare, and till this day Nightmare is one of my favorite albums of all times right before City of Evil. I love the vivid guitar riffs of Synyster Gates, the thundering drums of the Rev. However, this letter isn't about that. This is a letter distressing my concerns on the lack of impact of your latest album. At first “The Stage (song)” seemed promising as the eargasmic guitar riffs of both Zack and Gates and the excellent drums of Brook Wackerman. But when the full album was released I found that the vivid guitar riffs present in previous album in City of Evil, yourself titled...

I recently watched the movie "The Shack" with my wife. I've never read the novel that this movie is taken from, and so my comments are based purely on the content of the movie itself, and not any specific passages from the book. Since any excerpts from the book that I might take theological issue with do NOT appear to be in the movie, it doesn’t deter my appreciation for the fact that this can be a great springboard into many useful conversations about God and how He works in our lives. I was actually quite pleased that, for once, a mainstream movie with a “Christian” theme didn’t have the bulk of its message watered down to fit into a Hollywood agenda. The themes of “why God allows bad things to happen to good people,” “dealing with the guilt and shame of our sinful behavior,” “...

Dear Karan Johar, Shame on you! First for taking a casual ‘coffee show’ comment and making into a ‘moment of the show’, and then outrageously venting your heart out against one of the most talented actresses of today’s times at a forum such as LSE where she wasn’t co-invited or had an opportunity to put up a defense. If you felt so strongly about the ‘nepotism’ comment, why not respond to it on your show in a face-off? Why not walk out or have your invitee walk out? Leave behind the negative energy there and then? Second, for having the limited artistic capacity to take the comment literally as offering your ‘brothers, sisters, daughters’ roles in films you make. In that limited discretion of yours in understanding the noun you have completely omitted the ‘close friends’ who...

Hi Lin, I want to start with the truth: I love Hamilton. I loved it from the moment I first heard it and I’ll love it for the rest of my life, even if you don’t respond to this letter. In fact, I’m listening to it right now. “I swear your pride will be the death of us all; beware, it goes before the fall.” No great work of art is flawless, and though Hamilton comes close, there is one major flaw that I want to bring to your attention. It’s this line: “Madison you’re mad as a hatter so take your medicine.” The problem? This is clearly an insult, and mental illness should never be used in such a way. This is clearly ableism. I’ll break it down for you. First, “mad” is considered a slur by many. I don’t know if I would go as far as to label it as such, but I do know that it has a...

Okay, now you can get off your high horse. Since the 2016 election cycle began, you have been up there, passing judgement to the now elected President and his voters. Now, I don’t disagree with you – he is quite rightly, a bawbag. But in this political climate where the victims of bigotry, racism, financial burden, illness and sexual assault are still being suppressed – you award a man the highest achievement in his field. Best Actor in a Leading Role. After shaking your fist and pointing your finger at all that voted for the ‘pussy grabber’, you did the same thing. You spit on the face of all who marched on January 21 2017 to fight for our voices to be heard. You spit on the face of all women and men who are victims of sexual assault. You spit on the face of HIS victims of...
