HOW TO TALK ABOUT THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS MOVIE WITH FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND COMMENTERS
For some, the speed with which one can type a sentence and post it onto the internet has greatly outpaced the speed with which one can form a coherent thought.
- •As with most things, the best way to discuss the new Ghostbusters movie is by behaving like a rational human being, and an adult with other concerns.Remakes are just like Mondays — they happen and you'll live
- •It's always good to ask yourself, "Am I at work right now and does it count as time theft to hang out in the kitchen with my bros for half an hour, saying rude things about various actresses?"If the answer to that question is yes, then goodbye and godspeed!
- •If you're at a family gathering and you know that no one there cares about the recent Ghostbusters controversy, it's better not to force anyone to talk to you about it.That would make you an inconsiderate conversationalist.
- •Calmly state your feelings in matter-of-fact language that does not include gendered or racial slurs.This is how humans talk to each other.
- •Make a concession. This proves that you're ready to not act insane.Example: "I guess I don't REALLY think the argument that any movie could retroactively ruin another movie from over 30 years ago is logical"
- •Change the subject!Less controversial topics include: the 2016 election cycle, the role of labor unions in America, and the pros and cons of the death penalty.
- •Bring up the one thing everyone can agree onThere is not one living person who is more deserving of a big break and lots of money than Leslie Jones.
