Fantastical Bits

"It's all very realistic, except for the incredibly fantastical bits." - Joss Whedon

This is a whimsical assortment of delightful reblogs. You will find a lot of nerdfighteria, Doctor Who, The Young Ones, The History Boys, Frank Turner, Whedonverse, Rian Johnson, and plenty of other bits.

My regular blog for mostly original content is sarahalyse.

I loved this scene so much. The actors play off this pairing as flirty and adorable in a way the characters really weren’t in the novels IMO. 

That said, when she said the line, “Girls see more blood than boys,” my husband was all confused and like, “What, warrior women, she means?”

So I just looked at him and started listing off, “Blood from their periods every month, maybe blood from sex, blood from childbirth, blood from tending and washing the wounded and dead…That’s been true for most of womankind all through history.”

And he got very, very quiet.

I’ve reblogged this before, but I’m reblogging again for the commentary because this little exchange is like a wink to the female audience that I really loved and I guarantee you that any woman who saw this would know exactly what she means. There are a pretty big chunk of men in the world who don’t think that “women’s work” or women’s bodies are worth knowing about. Also I think find it really amusing when he tries to pass off his ignorance with, “you’re different, you’re not like other women” and she immediately shuts that down.

It completely blows my mind that any adult human could not know what she’s referring to. The guy in the anecdote is a MARRIED MAN even. Like, even teenage boys should know what this is about, but an adult who lives with a woman? The idiocy is staggering.

Actual problems with feminism

- excluding POC, mogai, disabled and especially trans women

- ignoring issues that do not involve the U.S

- not realizing that feminism is for women to realize that they can do what they want and thrashing women who are feminine or wear religious attire

Not problems of feminism

- one teenage girl saying she hates men because 5 men catcalled her while walking home from school

I disagree, I think cat calling is a big problem which is relevant to feminism. Do men get cat calls? No. Therefore we are treated as unequal in that, is not the point of feminism to bring everyone to an equal point?

You misread the post, I think. They’re saying that the girl saying she hates men is not a problem. This post is, I suspect, trying to address people who get all mad about feminism when a woman says “I hate men” after being harassed by men.

People have been sending asks to neil-gaiman lately, criticizing him for caring about the actors that portray his characters being the correct ethnicities, because in all their minds he didn’t make said ethnicities obvious enough in the books. These people seem to think the first sentence of every book should be like, “Fat Charlie was black. Moving on…”

somekindofrevolution asked:

About that firefighter: what makes you conclude that she isn't just leaning on the firetruck, with her forearm facing towards the camera?

Okay, here’s the story:

I saw that photo last night, and at first I thought there were three hands on her arm, which freaked me out. Then I realized, “Oh, no, that’s just the orange rocks behind her.” But then part of it clearly overlapped with her arm, and I realized that was definitely a hand. So then I was like, “Wait, whose hand is it? And where does the rest of her arm go? WHAT IS GOING ON?!?” I stared at it for several minutes, trying to figure out if I was going insane.

Then today I was scrolling through my dash and saw it, and my eyes and brain immediately said, “Her hand is resting on the truck, with her forearm bent out of sight.” So I deleted it…but you beat me to it.

The moral of the story is STOP GOING ON TUMBLR AT 3 IN THE MORNING FOR CHRISSAKE, YA BRAIN AIN’T RIGHT.
