the same man but not exactly the same man

My brilliant fiance, this man of talent, Dustin Lance Black 💖

anonymous asked:

Also can I just say that I'm not a fan of Celaena in the first book hating on Kaltain because she's "that kind of girl". Instead of, oh I don't know, befriending her?? She and Dorian hate on her, even though they don't bother to find out her side of the story or anything about her. It's great that she likes dresses and also killing people ! Being "girly" isn't bad ! But then when Kaltain does the same things she hates on her bc she's a threat to her man. Feminist icon???

This is exactly why I don’t consider T0G a feminist series. Yeah, it’s great that Cela*ena is girly and badass, but where’s the sorority? Women hating each other because of a man is probably one of the least feminist things I can think of. Cel*aena is a “I’m not like other girls, they’re sluts and I’m not” when she is doing the exact same thing Katlain is doing?? (flirting with Dorian and being girly). That’s not feminist, that’s sexist and disgusting.
Not to mention the series doesn’t really get any better. Alien and Lysandra aren’t equals in their relationship, that’s not a good female friendship.

“can we venture out on our own together?”
“of course!”

The monstrous homogenization of the world has now almost destroyed the map, any map, by making every place on it eactly like every other place, and leaving no blanks. No unknown lands. A hamburger joint and a coffee shop in every block repeated forever. No others; nothing unfamiliar. As in the Mandelbrot fractal set, the enormously large and the infinitesimally small are exactly the same; and the same leads always to the same again: there is no other; there is no escape, because there is nowhere else. (…) 

The fractal world of endless repetition is appallingly fragile. There is no illusion, even, of safety in it; an entirely human construct, it can be entirely destroyed at any moment by human agency. It is the world of the neutron bomb, the terrorist, and the next plague. It is Man studying Man alone. It is the reality trap. Is it any wonder that people want to look somewhere else? But there is no somewhere else, except in what is not human, and in our imagination.

did somebody say magical girl hank

its 4am ok dont judge me

“So she told me a story. A story about a boy who was born with very green eyes, and the man who was so captivated by their color that he searched the world for a stone in exactly the same shade.” His voice is fading now, falling into whispers so quiet I can hardly hear him. “She said the boy was me. That this ring was made from that very same stone, and that the man had given it to her, hoping one day she’d be able to give it to me. It was his gift, she said, for my birthday.” He stops. Breathes. “And then she took it off, slipped it on my index finger, and said, ‘If you hide your heart, he will never be able to take it from you”

In a system based on inequality where do you draw the line
Between fighting to stop oppression and perpetuating the same crime
When you start to define anyone simply based upon their gender
They you’re guilty of the crime and wan equally wrong offender
It makes life easy to force people into simple categories
You’re a man, you’re a woman isn’t that the same old story
And as a man society has mapped out exactly what you must do
Just as society has told all women what their roles are too
Too many times we think fighting sexism means creating a battlefield
With men on one side and women on the other and both sides ready to kill
But striving to find creative solutions to a problem that exists
Doesn’t have to mean that it’s her side against his
Can’t you see, won’t you see, why don’t you see that I’m the problem?
Can’t you see, won’t you see, why don’t you see that you’re the problem?
Can’t you see, won’t you see, why don’t you see that we’re the problem?
Isolation or solution to the problem
A person’s ability to fight sexism shouldn’t be based on gender
Just because someone is a man doesn’t mean he’s a sexist oppressor
Or that he’s blind to the problems that create gender inequality
And that he’s blind to the problems that create gender inequality
And that he’s not willing to do his part to help change society
Just as some women don’t know exactly how to take a stand against gender roles
Simply because they’re a woman doesn’t mean they have all the knowledge and the tools
To break down the barriers of oppression and inequality that exists
Because it’s the barriers between women and men that allows sexism to persist
Can’t you see, won’t you see, why don’t you see that I’m the problem?
Can’t you see, won’t you see, why don’t you see that you’re the problem?
Can’t you see, won’t you see, why don’t you see that we’re the problem?
Isolation or solution to the problem
If you don’t strive to stop oppression then you’re part of the problem
Whether you’re a man or a woman it’ll take us all to fucking stop them
Men and women both suffer under he heavy hand of oppression
Both living gender roles that only lead to this suppression
Of our natural ability to communicate and live equally with each other
As a friend or a lover, as a sister or a brother
If our only goal in fighting sexism is to try and place blame
Then unfortunately we’re all guilty of playing the same games
But if in unity women and men come together and take a stand
Then with our united goal we could bring sexism to an end
Can’t you see, won’t you see, why don’t you see that I’m the problem?
Can’t you see, won’t you see, why don’t you see that you’re the problem?
Can’t you see, won’t you see, why don’t you see that we’re the problem?
