Man, the moral of Thor is really good, actually. How many superhero movies are there where the hero learns to resolve problems non-violently and that bashing his enemies indiscriminately in the face isn’t always the right thing to do?
I’m at the part where Thor is all like “No no it’s okay, I’m…
church of england you can’t preach about equal marriage “fundamentally changing the meaning of marriage” and “diluting” marriage when you were created so that henry viii could divorce katherine of aragon
Out in the middle of bumfuck, Nevada, far away from civilization, Burning Man is currently happening. And it’s not just a giant hippie fest, where people are roaming around the desert in some aimless drug stupor. It’s a festival of creation and art and imagination, and every year, some pretty interesting things bloom in the Nevada desert.
If you step on my foot, you need to get off my foot.
If you step on my foot without meaning to, you need to get off my foot.
If you step on my foot without realizing it, you need to get off my foot.
If everyone in your culture steps on feet, your culture is horrible, and you need to get off my foot.
If you have foot-stepping disease, and it makes you unaware you’re stepping on feet, you need to get off my foot. If an event has rules designed to keep people from stepping on feet, you need to follow them. If you think that even with the rules, you won’t be able to avoid stepping on people’s feet, absent yourself from the event until you work something out.
If you’re a serial foot-stepper, and you feel you’re entitled to step on people’s feet because you’re just that awesome and they’re not really people anyway, you’re a bad person and you don’t get to use any of those excuses, limited as they are. And moreover, you need to get off my foot.
See, that’s why I don’t get the focus on classifying harassers and figuring out their motives. The victims are just as harassed either way.
It’s also applicable to other situations where someone claims their intentions were pure and they didn’t mean to do something sexist/racist/heterosexist/abelist, etc. Even if you did not mean to step on someone’s foot—you did.
TAG. YOU’RE IT. The rules are to state 10 random facts about yourself. Then, go to your ten favorite blogs and tell them that they are it (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*♥:･ﾟ✧
…I did not expect that. Wait, wasn’t there a gif for this? *searches* Apparently not, but I managed to find the element of surprise.
Anyways, back to the issue at hand… Right.
10. I cry on sad movies. A lot. My record was for the “Grave of the Fireflies” when I started crying some twenty seconds in and didn’t stop till the very end. I cry on sad books even more.
9. I don’t remember the past well, but I remember my old dreams perfectly. I can recall what I dreamt about in high school no problem, but the names of my classmates are gone forever.
8. I have a knack for writing - I like playing with words, using just the right ones. I waste it horribly.
7. I have a weird form of dysphoria - I can’t remember what I look like unless I make a real effort. Worst case was in high school when I was on a scout camp for three weeks and when I got back I didn’t recognize my face in the mirror. Completely freaked me out.
6. I learned to read before I learned to walk, mostly because I had joints problem so I was not allowed to walk unsupported before I was three.
5. I only empathize well when using written forms of communication. I don’t read body language at all and have trouble with intonation. So if you want something from me just freaking tell me, I don’t get subtext.
4. I have a real talent for languages - comes with my tendency to notice patterns, I guess. I waste it even more horribly than the writing skills.
3. Before I die, I want to taste as much different food as possible and see as much of the world as I can.
2. I’m a pacifist. One of the few real nightmares I ever had was me actually murdering some poor guy. On the other hand, I usually die in my dreams, but that’s ok, that just means it was a good, intense dream.
1. I tend to get a new hobby every two years or so, get really, really into it, then get bored and drop it completely. Gives me a lot of memories, a lot of variable skills and a LOT of unfinished business.
There. I’m not gonna tag people, though, if you want to do it, just do it.
‘Doctor Who’ Steven Moffat rules out return for villain the Rani
“People always ask me, ‘Do you want to bring back the Rani?’ No one knows who the Rani is,” Moffat quipped.
The writer continued: “They all know who the Master is, they know Daleks, they probably know who Davros is, but they don’t know who the Rani is, so there’s no point in bringing her back. If there’s a line it’s probably somewhere there.”
Clearly somebody knows who the Rani is if THEY’RE ASKING YOU IF SHE’S GOING TO MAKE A TRIUMPHANT RETURN, MOFFAT.
WHAT!?!?!?! I’m sorry but someone just asked plus he entire Classic Who fandom (which is increasingly growing) knows who the Rani is!!!
I hope she at least returns in a Big Finish with Kate O’Mara. I once asked Colin Baker & he said he would love to have Kate back.
This fells like another Dan Dido - Stephanie Brown moment
Why does nobody ever ask about Drax coming back?
I mean he’s clearly the best time lord ever.
But. But. Google is a thing that exists. Fans who don’t know the Rani can look her up. Stop acting like New Who fans are stupid, and stop treating Classic Who like it didn’t happen. JESUS.
What exactly ever made you think that Moffat has respect for his fans?
Also, seriously, the Rani could kick the Master in the balls. In fact, she has.
