GRAYISH WHITE AND OLD AS NIGHT: Science-Fiction TV Finds a New Muse: Feminism J-School graduate David Levesly trots out the tired old Feminism trope as this week's television tie-in. Showing incredible restraint for a Daily Beaster, he manages to hold off mentioning Anita Sarkeesian (the Paris Hilton of PC video gaming) until well into his second paragraph. Dave explains that science fiction needs to "allegorize and analyze abortion" to become more interesting, by "extrapolating these topics away from the individual and placing them as higher-stakes problems." His use of the word "interesting" brings The Princess Bride movie to mind.
