unpopular opinions/facts
  • if your grandparents/parents are transphobic/homophobic, please be patient with them. They’ve been raised with values that we just don’t uphold anymore, and some of them are stuck in their old ways.
  • Women aren’t all innocent and good by default, the same is true with men
  • There have been many female pedophiles, as well as rapists, they just aren’t incarcerated at the same rates as their male counterparts.
  • If you refuse to have sex with someone because of their race, orientation, gender, appearance, weight, genitals, or anything of the sort, don’t feel guilty
  • you can, indeed, be racist to white people. Not called reverse racism, just racism.
  • please don’t force your fucking animals to be vegan with you. Dogs, cats, etc, they need meat!
  • if you are a trans guy that goes out looking like the opposite gender (long hair, makeup, female clothing, looking like society’s version of a female while actually being male), please don’t go off on someone if you get misgendered. Same goes with trans girls.
  • ‘you can cosplay whoever you want, regardless of the character’s race or gender

In King Lear (III:vii) there is a man who is such a minor character that Shakespeare has not given him even a name: he is merely “First Servant.” All the characters around him – Regan, Cornwall, and Edmund – have fine long-term plans. They think they know how the story is going to end, and they are quite wrong. The servant has no such delusions. He has no notion of how the play is going to go. But he understands the present scene. He sees an abomination (the blinding of old Gloucester) taking place. He will not stand it.

His sword is out and pointed at his master’s breast in a moment: then Regan stabs him dead from behind. That is his whole part: eight lines all told. But if it were real life and not a play, that is the part it would be best to have acted.
