Links for February 10, 2019: An Angry Gay’s Overdue Screed on Bohemian Rhapsody, Chivalry is not that, naked webcomics, Terry Pratchett’s Oblivion mod

Christine Kelley posted a belated, but powerful response to Bohemian Rhapsody, a Queen biopic I have personally refused to watch because shouting and throwing eggs at a movie screen is not my idea of a good time: An Angry Gay’s Overdue Screed on Bohemian Rhapsody.

That’s Not What Chivalry Is by Dr Eleanor Janega is a good explainer on the history and scope of medieval codes of chivalry:

Basically then chivalry and the chivalric code has fuck all to do with women at all. It’s a bunch of rules about how to conduct yourself if you are a rich dude, with a horse, a lot of weapons, and time on your hands. Saying that you treat women well because of chivalry makes about as much sense as saying you treat them well because of the highway code. It’s just not a thing.

The naturist campsite El Zorro in Cartagena, Murcia, Spain has its own webcomic: María Jesús Naturist Del Portús. It’s a bit hit and miss and it looks like a lot may be lost in translation, but it has its cute and funny moments and the fact that it exists at all is noteworthy.

Terry Pratchett worked on an Oblivion mod, writing characters and suggesting adaptations to accommodate his Alzheimer’s, which then also turned out to be useful for abled people.
