Just a reminder that Octavia Blake spent the first sixteen years of her life hiding under floorboards in a tiny room in space and yet she’s a thousand times more competent at being a decent human being than 90% of the characters on this show.
I honestly have so much to do - more than 37000 screencaps to look through, iconning (*screams*), work on some drafts that are waiting to be replied since forever, reply what’s on my inbox, and post the all of the headcanons/metas I wrote during those weeks and simply organize them. SEND HELP.
The Rich Man’s Daughter - 1x01 - “Has this ever happened to you? Where you see someone for the
first time but when your eyes meet it’s like there’s something there
that you just can’t grasp?It’s like you can see…and feel the person’s soul.”
I find it really strange that older feminists are trying to shame young women for supporting Sanders because that implies that Hillary Clinton is a better presidential candidate simply by virtue of being female. And while I understand that even having a woman running for president is a big deal for feminists, I also don’t think that Hillary should win because she’s a woman. So for these women to demand that all feminists vote for Hillary solely because she’s a woman is ignoring the fact that Sanders is also a feminist, and while it would be a huge milestone in feminism to elect a female president, doing so also should not necessitate that we, as voters, ignore all other aspects of the candidates political history and beliefs. I’m sure that all of the candidates have worked very hard to get to where they are, and I’m sure that Hillary and Carly Fiorina have faced professional difficulties that their male associates have not due to the fact that they are women in a male-dominated field. However, that does not make them any more or less qualified to be president, nor does it mean that voters should vote for them just because they’re women.
TL;DR: No one deserves to be elected to a political position due to an aspect of their cultural/biological background that they have no control over whatsoever.
