I’m taking the school age kids on a field trip to Medieval Times and the jousting has started

And one of the kids goes, “Tell them to stop fighting and use their words!”

“Books always had this very powerful effect on me because of some communication, somebody seeming even in a very symbolic or displaced way to understand what I was feeling. And I think that is the miracle of literature, is this private communication between one intelligence and another.”

honestly if you dont think like, the tumblr feminist scene, with all the occasionalyl cheesy kawaii-aesthetic misandry art, hasn’t had an impact on anyone at all like

you dont remember what the average teen girl in a fandom was like before this. you don’t remember how we used to make hate-sites about female characters who “got in the way”, games where you could beat them up, how much we hate our gender and bragged about not being like other girls, used to completely reject everything girly. a lot of us just wanted to be one of the guys. there was a lot of internalised misogyny there

now you get these 15 year old girls loving other girls and loving themselves fiercely, even at the total cost of male approval and just. god. if like 14-year-old me could see this shit now. 

and like if you dont think teen girls learning to love themselves and their body and each other isnt important than i do not know what to say to you

“Men’s rights activists don’t organize marches; they don’t build shelters or raise funds for abused men; they don’t organize prostate cancer-awareness events or campaign against prison rape. What they actually do, when they’re not simply carping in comments online, is target and harass women—from feminist writers and professors to activists—in an attempt to silence them.”

You know

the thing about Macklemore claiming it was a ‘witch’ costume

where the fuck does everyone think the “Witches have big crooked noses” thing came from in the first place?!?!

IT LITERALLY CAME FROM LIBELOUS CLAIMS THAT JEWS WERE WITCHES WHO SACRIFICED CHRISTIAN CHILDREN TO SPARE THEMSELVES FROM THE BLACK PLAGUE

YOU LITTLE SHIT.

Hello!

williamshatner:

So I’m new to this but old to Social Media. My purpose for being here is to blog about my experiences online and get out of the 140 character limit.

I have tried turning on the /ask feature but it’s just fills my inbox with random posts and questions that I see everywhere…
