The jon snow who fought to get winterfell back, who challenged Ramsay, who defied Stannis, saved Mance from a painful death…he would never have said and did the things season 8 Jon Snow said and did. D&D threw his character in the trash.
I am heading off to college this fall and being the kind of person who always likes to be prepared, I decided I should by myself some pepper spray… just in case, you know? Now when I was buying this the saleswoman was making small talk and asked me why I was buying pepper spray. I said that I’m going to college to which she immediately replied that I should definitely get the bundle of two and the pull away lanyard so it would be closer to me and more easily accessible.
Now tell me. Look me in the eyes and tell me America doesn’t breed rape culture, tell me that feminists aren’t needed, tell me that we as women are overreacting….when all we as women want is to be safe, to get our education, to live our lives, to be who we are without fear. And I know it’s not all men, but it is all women who live with this constant fear… and it is constantly promoted by awful cases such as the Brock Turner case that teaches women in this country that if it does happen to us, we will be blamed and our attacker will be let off with barely a slap on the wrist. I am sickened by this countries failure to protect women. I am sickened that this continues to happen. I am sick of being told that feminism is not needed and then seeing this continue to happen.
For those laughing at and mocking Cassandra Clare because she was raped, there is something incredibly wrong with you.
You want to act like her pointing out (correctly) that TVShow Alec was given a scene in which he appeared to be forcing sex on an unsure Magnus is a HIDEOUS CRIME go ahead. I have long suspected TV Malec stans cling so closely to the idea that TVAlec is unproblematic because they know the show is badly written and badly plotted, and hoping it’s unproblematic in some ideological way is a form of defending it. (Sadly, Alec on the show is a horrendously unpleasant character, what with his yen to commit murder and torture on POC Downworlders. And please don’t tell me he looked sad as he dragged Meliorn off to be tortured and killed. He didn’t and it wouldn’t matter if he had.) I understand he’s a cute white dude, and therefore morally perfect on tumblr, like who cares if he made Magnus pretend they didn’t know each other at a meeting HE CALLED? He totally acknowledges him when convenient, and also, he has visible abs!
I don’t care if you think it was very very wrong of her to point out a fact that had literally been covered in MAJOR NEWSPAPERS AND MAGAZINES, which is that Shadowhunters featured a potentially triggering Malec scene in which consent was problematically nonexistent. She has every right and more right than many.
I don’t care if you want to pretend that she’s upset because the show is “so popular!” As someone else astutely pointed out on Cassie’s Instagram, she sells more books than the show has viewers. Literally. She’s sold over a million copies of Lady Midnight in the US (per Publisher’s Weekly) and the show doesn’t have close to a million viewers. According to the Nielson ratings, it has about 300,000. Given that writers make money when the shows based on their books are popular, she probably wishes more people actually watched the fucking thing. Also, TV shows are SUPPOSED TO HAVE MORE VIEWERS THAN BOOKS HAVE READERS. MORE PEOPLE WATCH TV THAN READ. The fact that the books are lapping the show is like a turtle winning a marathon. “But all six of my friends are in the fandom!” you cry. Newsflash: the online fandoms for media properties that are unpopular in the real world can be relatively large. You’re welcome.
I don’t care that you spend your time hating the person who created the characters you’re obsessed with. It requires a spectacularly ignorant lack of empathy or understanding of creativity to fail to acknowledge the debt owed to the creator of the thing you devote your life to, but then what is tumblr for if not celebrating the work of talentless white men and dismissing what women make?
I do care that so far I’ve been seeing way too many Malec stans claiming that CC deserved to be violently assaulted and raped because she pointed out a true problematic thing about the TV show. If you believe that, you’re not just sick in the head, you’re sick in the heart.
Wow. So right now I am so disappointed and disgusted.
During the Mexico earthquake, amongst the fallen constructions, was a school where various children and teachers were trapped. It was a horrible new and everyone followed its advances. They were able to save some children but most of them were beyond salvation. This was a heart-wrenching situation.
After some time, all hope of finding survivors was lost as they only were able to pull out the bodies of those little angels.
Everyone was stroke by grief until some government Marines gave the notice that they had been able to make contact with a 12-year-old girl who apparently said her name was “Frida Sofia” and that she and other two classmates were trapped under a table. She quickly became a light of Hope in the midst of despair.
More than 24 hours later and after a full coverage of events, it was revealed that it all had been a blatant lie. For starters, no parent or responsible adult appeared and claimed to be her relative, there were no records of a girl with said name on the school and the government had prohibited entrance to all the volunteers and the topos (a special group specialized in rescuing people trapped under debris).
Televisa, the television chain that covered the new, was blamed for spreading fake news to increase their ratings. Televisa blamed the government for giving them said fake information.
(”In a few words, Frida Sofia doesn’t exist”. -Joaquín López-Dóriga via Twitter. aka one of the reporters who did coverage on the “Frida Sofia” case.)
What I say, whoever the fault was, this was just cruel and twisted.
I am very disappointed.
There are still people trapped under rubble and the ones helping are the civilians. The government preferred to mount their reality show. Wasting time on a fake rescue instead of attending the real emergency. What a shame.
Most of the people there didn’t even attempt to wear anything related to the theme. We all know most of them only wear the more basic Comme des Garçons clothes and aren’t really that into avant-garde looks but like couldn’t you have put in a little bit more effort???? Why would you even participate in this kind of event if you weren’t gonna do it properly? Stay at home next year!!!
"People don't hate Roman the person. They hate his character and how he is booked."
This is the biggest lie ever told. I never want this ever uttered again.
Because if this was true, people wouldn’t be throwing stuff at him or trying to shove him down stairs. Or saying gross shit like raping and killing his wife and daughter in the guise of a joke. Or sending him death threats. Or like yesterday by saying he should have died instead of his brother.
So, no. That piece of shit lie lost power yesterday for good. If I see it again, you will get called out.
It’s bad enough Ashley Wagner got hosed on scores at Nationals and got left off the Olympic team, but to not even name her to Worlds after everything she has done to try to keep the US women relevant the last 4 years is a slap in the face. I’m so disgusted by U.S. Figure Skating right now.
I’m in the middle of Coronavirus outbreak and all I can say about this situation is the most dangerous virus here is people ignorance. Fake news spreading all over social medias, people emptying supermarkets as if a war just broke out, kids assaulting Asian people both physically and verbally … I’m speechless.
At this point, if you're silent, you are complicit
If you say all lives matter, you are complicit.
If you are not interested in discussing real issues that impact real people because you “don’t see race”, you are complicit.
If you invalidate the real fears of others because you are unable to realize that the murders taking place are in fact, murders by your prized authority figures, you are complicit.
What i woke up to this morning. I am shocked beyond words.
This needs to be shared, it needs to be read and people need to be horrified but they need to know because this cannot continue! We in the dance community need to PROTECT our peers, students, and workers from this kind of predatory behavior, NOT facilitate it!!! Every time someone is let off the hook, brought back to work, allowed to stay on the board… things like this will continue to happen. NOBODY is talented enough to prey on women who have to trust them with their bodies and get away with it or have to deal with only minor reprocussions.
Something has to change, priorities have to change.
When you have been married with someone for 10 years almost, but still need to “steal” a professional picture from an endorsed campaign to celebrate “your love, your person”.
You should have an invaluable source of pictures from with to drawn; with which celebrate your love for this person and the utmost appreciation for this day, for is the day the guy who made a wife and a mother out of you, came to life.
A picture of the first bday you spent together, his first bday as a father, as a father of two.
No. An endorsed campaign.
I don’t hate you. I don’t know you, I cannot.
But fuck my life, Elizabeth, if I don’t despise and loathe the shit outta the fact that you’re selling your family, your marriage and your fucking dignity as a woman.
