"Some writers need a while to charge their batteries, and then write their books very rapidly. Some writers write a page or so every day, rain or shine. Some writers run out of steam, and need to do whatever it is they happen to do until they’re ready to write again."Neil Gaiman (Entitlement issues) (long)

Think Actively About Your Use of the Word ‘Women’
You might love your new hashtag or slogan, and it might be pretty catchy, but take a moment to remember that the “War on Women” really only means one type of person: cis-women.
“A Woman’s Right to Choose,” “Women’s Health,” and “Women’s Access” are all phrases that erase me and others like me.
Using “women” as a catch-all term for “people with active uteruses” is incredibly problematic (and also, don’t reduce people to body parts).
Remember basic diversity training: Not all women can have/want to have children. Not everyone who gives birth identifies as a woman. Health clinics whose main concern is reproductive health can (and do!) cater to people other than women."

so sorry for my delayed response to this email, i have been very swamped being a confused and frightened idiot who can’t do basic life tasks like respond to her emails
Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.
i mean„ yeah, he’s, like, got that thing where he’s got a thing goin bc he’s a white dude so yeah
The best thing about heteronormativity is that straight people make signs like these.
I’m sorry but if you try to tell me there are only three wizard schools in the ENTIRE magical world I will fight you.
I wanna see Indian wizardry schools
Japanese magic schools where the house ghosts have shrines
Schools hidden in sand dunes and enchanted to look like mirages
American schools hidden in Roswell and Salem
Public magical schools for kids that don’t want to leave home for seven years
GIVE ME ALL THE WIZARD SCHOOL HEAD CANONS!
"Every single Marvel Studios movie has centered around a presumably straight, white, male protagonist, even if white women (mostly love interests) and men of color (support roles) have played roles in the film. The franchise is a box office juggernaut and has a ton of movies on this list, but we’ve gotten two to three movies about each of the men on the Avengers and there’s yet to be a film about Black Widow.Marissa Lee, Where’s the Diversity, Hollywood? Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blockbusters Overwhelmingly White, Male (via fuckyeahblackwidow) (long)
Both of Marvel’s ensemble films—The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy—trimmed down the superhero teams for their film adaptations, and the women characters, save for one, were the first to be cut. Most moviegoers will never know that women of color and LGBTQ characters were cut from Guardians of the Galaxy, but audiences will get to relate to the talking raccoon and the talking tree."
