The role of women in the great upheaval in the Middle East has been woefully under-analyzed. Women in Egypt did not just “join” the protests – they were a leading force behind the cultural evolution that made the protests inevitable. And what is true for Egypt is true, to a greater and lesser extent, throughout the Arab world. When women change, everything changes, and women in the Muslim world are changing radically.

Stereotype? You guys have awesome accents, but unfortunate names for common items. :3

awesome accents i can agree on, some are absolutely hilarious. as for common items, i guess so? wooly jumper (sweater?)must sound pretty weird to some people. rubbers (erasers) can lead to a lot of confusion with americans. i think naming a pudding “spotted dick” is probably the silliest.

yeah, i think these steroetypes apply

thanks for the ask!

Just noticed that Mac Demarco and Donnie Darko have the same amount of syllables, and Mac wrote a song called Youngblood based on the film starring Patrick Swayze from the 80s. Patrick Swayze was in the movie Donnie Darko as motivational speaker Jim Cunningham. The album Rock and Roll Nightclub is a parody of 80s Rock and Roll steroetypes. Could Mac’s biggest inspiration be Patrick Swayze films?

Imagine all the shinigami watch The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy and theyre all pointing out the "horribly steroetyped portrayl of their kind" :3

this is really cute!! i can totally see some of them being super offended by the stereotypical grim reaper

So its literacy day, go tumblr. But I think this literacy day we should do something special, not just the standard yeah go reading bullshit. I think I speak for everyone when we need to stand up for girls and boys who don't fit the 'reader' type. This is where Ginny Weasley comes in, I want Ginny to be a go to for strong female characters in literature. I am so fed up with nerd elitist girls acting like hermione is the best and only hero. Ginny was athletic and a writer, she defies steroetype

What did you have in mind? I do believe that Ginny deserves more credit since she became a journalist.
