Gender is what suits you

by D Martin Austin

Whenever asked to write about gender empowerment, I think, “Easy! I’m a queer, nonbinary womxn. Obviously, I’m the foremost expert on contemporary gender theory.” Then I remember that I don’t know shit about shit. I, like every other person you know, have a reasonable grasp of my own gender, but everyone else’s is their own bag of self-definition. Neither I nor anyone else can give you a definitive answer for what “gender” even means.… Read More

THE MERCURY GENDER EMPOWERMENT ISSUE

Best Microsoft Access Programmer Portland OR

BEYOND THE BINARY

by Mercury Staff

Welcome to the Mercury’s first-ever Gender Empowerment Issue!

Why dedicate an issue to gender? Well, to put it bluntly: We’re living through something of a gender revolution. As women continue to grapple with how to gain and use power, men are adjusting to a world in which they’re being asked to share that power more often—and realizing that toxic societal notions of masculinity have done them a disservice. The increasing visibility of transgender and nonbinary people is … Read More

Tad’s Chicken ’N Dumplings: A Classic “Must-Stop” When Visiting the Gorge
by Andrea Damewood

I’ve long wondered about Tad’s Chicken ’n Dumplins while driving back from various Gorge activities along the Historic Columbia River Highway, enraptured by its neon sign with only the letters “Tad’s Chic Dump” illuminated beneath a glowing outline of the restaurant’s titular dish.

According to Tad’s bookkeeper, Jen Heitzman, Tad’s has been around in some form since the late 1920s, first as a roadside stop by local fisherman Tad Johnson, who sold fish and chips and smelt from the river … Read More

Bang! Bang! Crucio! Crucio!

by Erik Henriksen

The Assistant
Kitty Green’s The Assistant is one of the first films in this #MeToo-era to grapple with the people (men and women alike) and corporate structures that allow for abusers to flourish. They didn’t arrive into their respective scenes that way, rather, a misogynistic culture that mandated we “look the other way” helped to normalize their behavior.

Emma Review: Emma Is Wonderful, but the Real Star Is Sassy Bill Nighy

Don’t compare Emmas.

by Suzette Smith

From the moment Mr. Woodhouse (Bill Nighy) bounded down the steps of his staircase in full scowl, I wanted to see Emma again. Though this film is merely the latest adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel about a wealthy, independent heiress who creates mischief with her matchmaking schemes, I went in pretty hyped up. For one, the titular Emma (Anya Taylor-Joy) seemed to be playing a little closer to the book’s character, with Taylor-Joy making full use … Read More
