Questions you should ask yourself about your Strong Female Character. From this excellent article: http://t.co/efkvvUqsum
Does she have one or two genuine, real-life flaws that make her a real person, not issues that turn her into a mess just when she’s needed most? Has she a fear or phobia, an enemy, obligations elsewhere? Has she been a lone wolf up till now and must learn to be part of a team, or has she been in charge for so long that she can’t adjust to someone else being in charge? (Or, upon being placed in charge, is she so timid about it that someone else takes over to the detriment of the team, and she realizes it’s her fault for not taking over when she was given the job, and she must do so now, hard and fast?)
This is necessary.
This is why ‘strong female character’ is a useless descriptor at this point. What we’re looking for in narratives is complete female characters; well-developed and rounded female characters, plot-crucial female character, agency-exerting female characters. ‘Strong’ is insufficient.
which is even funnier because she’s the reason lesbians are called lesbians. she was know as sappho of lesbos and her poems were all about her love for women
no im totally not a lesbo my super actual husband is dick allcocks from man island i’m megahet
So, hypothetically… if I could take a bunch of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and read books at Barnes and Noble all day… and then be able to display my knowledge and understanding of the subject on an equal, if not higher, level than a college student… then, hypothetically… why is everyone paying for college again?
(Answer: Because a college degree isn’t about education, it’s a class marker. If we cared about everyone being educated, we would accredit free online courses and allow people to achieve intellectual growth and success without going into debt. But that’s not what college is for. I mean, yeah in college you can travel and learn from amazing professors and start your own anything and have access to facilities and resources and money, yeah, college is all that. And I’m not discrediting anyone who loves college but… college, at the end of the day is a business. College is just one more big way to perpetuate the system. But I say f**k the system, man.) #FreeEducationForAll #LearnRadically
there’s been a lot of chats about safe spaces for bis on the bi tumblr tag thanks to the bitalks topic and i accidentally made this disgusting comic about feelings
This described my experience as a bisexual man so accurately. I thought you might appreciate it, followers.

im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh
I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.
