Why did Netflix Remove LGBTQ Tag on "Dahmer" Series?
Dahmer, also known as Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, is expected to be one of Netflix's most popular programs of the year. It's the most watched series debut since Stranger Things season 4 earlier this year, and it's already the top show on the service in dozens of nations.However, given how the real-life serial killer is portrayed in the show, Netflix keeps encountering disputes after disputes. If you've seen the show, I don't think it's possible to claim that it 'glorifies' Dahmer in any manner, but the problems with it originate from how Netflix has characterized it and the fact that it was produced in the first place.

June Osborne and Embracing the Darkness in 'The Handmaid's Tale'
Warning: This article contains spoilers for the original novel and season 5 episode 4. The philosopher Plato once told a story about a group of prisoners who had been trapped inside a cave their entire lives. All they could see were the shadows dancing on the walls. Those shadows were their reality. They represented the ideas and objects that humans use to define everything around them. According to him, that was all most humans were capable of seeing. Should a prisoner venture outside the cave, the light would hurt their eyes, and they would be blinded by it, unable to perceive the outside world. The pain would be too much and they'd retreat back into the comfortable darkness. This story, commonly referred to as the Allegory of the Cave, is mostly meant to outline our limited perception. We don't understand the world around us, and we certainly can't look inside ourselves and perceive our own nature. The public would never accept the science behind why we do things and the way we think. It goes against our most ingrained beliefs about who and what we are. That is a light we cannot withstand. It's like when someone insults us. We get defensive and shield ourselves from the truth because it hurts.Fiction reflects that. There are all sorts of rules that writers follow to avoid the darkest aspects of human nature and the world around us. Some truths are too uncomfortable, so they we skip those parts, focusing instead on beautiful lies. Margaret Atwood doesn't gloss those things over. She grabs a mirror, shoves it in our faces, and demands that we look. That's why so much of her work seems outlandish and counterintuitive. It's real. She refuses to give us anything other than an objective view of what we are and what we're capable of. She doesn't write about heros or heroines. She doesn't do happily ever afters. She gives us probable conclusions--decades of Gilead, no hope, and very little chance of escape. She lives in our world, not the world of fiction. 'The Handmaid's Tale' series reproduces Atwood's blinding objectivity, and it can be overwhelming. They challenge our notions of what it means to be good and evil. They go to places fiction doesn't go. Sometimes it's uncomfortable and unfamiliar, but that's because it's realistic. If we take a step back, focus our eyes, and see it for what it is, we can begin to understand it better.

The Ugly Truth About Aunt Lydia in 'The Handmaid's Tale'
Warning: This article contains spoilers up to season 5 episode 3Many members of the 'The Handmaid's Tale' fandom can point to a specific scene that makes them cry every time they watch it. It's different for everyone. It could be Rita walking off the plane, or maybe it's Moira searching through a cloud of smoke in Chicago. Whatever it is, it's proof that the show is a masterpiece.For me it was the beginning of season 2. The handmaids were ripped from their homes, chased down by dogs, and lined up on a gallows with nooses wrapped around their necks.  The horror and desperation became an unstoppable force, crashing down on millions of viewers. We didn't have a choice. We sobbed our eyes out as we watched the girls reaching to hold hands with one another. They were shaking so hard they could barely breathe. June looked up and we saw what looked like the light at the end of the tunnel. She was going to die.A guardian called out, 'By his hand!' A lever was pulled, and the world gasped. The girls did drop, but not far enough to be hung.  Instead, Aunt Lydia's voice rang out from a loudspeaker. 'You will love the Lord thy God with all your heart.'Had they not been tied up, they probably would've salvaged her for that. It was impossible to imagine how anyone could be so ruthless. They didn't do anything wrong. They just refused to stone Janine. Aunt Lydia didn't stop there, either. She used a torture technique, forcing them to undergo propaganda sessions while holding a stone up in the middle of the rain. She handcuffed Alma's hand to a lit stove. She even cut out one of the handmaid's tongues. This all started because Janine was losing touch. She was convinced that Commander Putnam loved her and that he would come for her after she was transferred to another posting. He had been lying to her and abusing her, and she bought into it.When Janine realized what had happened, she kidnapped Angela, and threatened to jump off a bridge with the child in her arms. June was able to talk her into handing the child over. But she still jumped off, injuring herself in the fall. Strangely enough, this was one of the first times we saw Lydia show any sign of compassion. It wasn't much, just a remark when she visited Janine's bedside. But the woman was so cruel that it was like seeing Ann Down step out of character.
