"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”
MYTHOLOGY MEME - [2/?] NORSE GODS/GODDESSES: FREYJA
"Hail to the Warrior Woman
on the equinox morning,
white-armored, choosing the slain
by her own glorious criteria,
harbor to the defenders of beauty.
O Freya who rides with Valkyries,
give me strength to defend all that I love
for I am dull and frightened with years of defeat
and I have forgotten the mystery of shield mates in love.”
What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?
I think the reason everyone likes Orange is the New Black so much is because we get to see everyone’s backstory and realize that even if they seem like a bad person, they’re still human and they have struggles and passions just like everyone else.
Except Vee. Fuck you Vee.
fun fact: the only thing standing between you and success is a small, angry gnome which has dedicated its whole existence to ruining you. you must not let it win

Sci-Fi Drama ► In the year 2134, androids have been developed. Electrodite Systems, a corporation specialising in technology, is advertising androids as ‘human’s best friend’ and selling them to those in need of companionship. Martin (Lee Pace), bought Walter (Hugh Dancy) a few years ago when he was lonely and living by himself. The two developed a close relationship until one night when Martin doesn’t return from work. Walter discovers that his friend was mugged and murdered during the walk home.
Should anything happen to their owner, androids are sent back to Electrodite and their memories erased so they can be resold. However when Walter is set to be reprogrammed, he meets technician Shiori (Rinko Kikuchi). He tells her that he does not wish to forget about Martin. Surprised and touched by the android’s apparent humanity, Shiori ‘steals’ Walter in order to learn just how human a robot can become.
