This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy. 

Yup.

So this.

I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.

Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.

One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.

There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.

I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.

There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.

And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.

It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.

MAN PROTECTS SHELTER DOGS FROM VIOLENT MOB - Petro Dibrova was forced to become a human shield when a mob of angry men appeared with the intention of killing the animals and taking the compound for themselves.”

A security guard named Petro Dibrova recently encountered an angry mob in front of a dog shelter in the Ukraine. The mob wanted to kill the dogs and destroy the compound. Apparently, they felt that resources at the shelter should be used for humans. Dibrova did his best to stop the mob but he was stabbed and punched. Police were called and one of the attackers was arrested. Read more from The Great Animal Rescue Chase & Harmony Fund:

“The men started beating the dogs on their paws and Petro immediately threw himself at them,” Tamara continued. “The men were punching Petro and stabbing him with a screwdriver. They knocked out one of Peter’s teeth and stabbed him in the cheek and leg. The shouts and the barking of the dogs alerted the women employees at the shelter who came forward instantly. Then the men started screaming more and threatened to burn down the shelter with all the dogs in it. Our female employees managed to call the police who arrived pretty quickly and arrested one of the attackers.”

***

“Had Petro not been there, the animals would be dead today and we fear for what may have happened to our female workers,” Tamara continues. “This one man single-handedly protected more than a thousand lives.”

Petro is expected to fully recover and to return to the shelter later this month. At his own home, Petro cares for several dogs he has adopted from the shelter, and now he is compelled to defend them all. He has vowed never to leave the dogs.

Mr. Dibrova’s heroic actions saved the lives of many dogs. The dog shelter in the Ukraine is in dire need of assistance, especially since it is in a war zone.

""Don’t share work-in-progress with non-writers. Indeed, don’t even discuss it. Think of work-in-progress as an egg around which the shell has not yet hardened. I told my wonderful husband, a newspaper editor, my idea for a scene I wanted to write. ‘It sounds like a cliché to me,’ he said. I winced—but as an editor on a daily deadline, his job is to derail weak ideas before they waste anyone’s time. As a fiction writer, mine is to trust my ideas, follow them around dark corners and see what turns up. Thankfully, I wrote my scene. The story won a prize that took me to Russia, ran in a top literary magazine, and was published in my first book." —"
