Getting interviewed by Alex Jones's right-wing website Infowars may not sound like a good time, but someone proved it's possible to have fun with it. Dasha Nekrasova, an actor and podcast host, did just that when an Infowars interviewer approached her at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, earlier this year. Dasha told Teen Vogue she was there promoting a movie. She had to miss a speech from Senator Bernie Sanders I-VT and was drinking an iced coffee when Ashton Whitty of Infowars approached her and began an interview that's earned Dasha the nickname " Sailor Socialism " due to her answers and her outfit's similarity to the cartoon character Sailor Moon. When Ashton asked if she was fan of Sanders, Dasha said yes and explained it was because he's a socialist. In the video, she giggled and asked if the interview was for Infowars , the right-wing website that has infamously promoted provably false conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook shooting , Pizzagate , Parkland survivor David Hogg , and other stories, but still managed to get White House press credentials. In the video, Dasha said of Sanders, "I think he has a lot of integrity. I like his value system.

Like many people who came of age in the late 90s and early aughts, I spent countless hours watching the Japanese manga series Sailor Moon on TV after school. I read all the comics, watched as many episodes as I could find, collected Sailor Moon dolls, backpacks, and no fewer than eight Sailor Guardian toothbrushes. Unfortunately, the episodes that aired on US television were dubbed and heavily edited. Queer characters were portrayed as straight, and entire story lines were often restructured or rewritten. If you wanted the good shit—uncut Japanese originals with subtitles—you had to work for it. This was back in the days of dial-up, long before Hulu or Apple TV, and for me, getting those unaltered episodes meant sending a bunch of blank VHS tapes to some guy named Glen in Canada who made illegal copies for other Western fans just for the cost of shipping. This was damn near a full-time job for him, and he did it purely out of a deep love for the series.
