Charlotte (at Miranda's mom funeral) : Those flowers were supposed to say "We're so sorry, we love you.", not "You're dead, let's disco!"

Ain't them bodies saints

definition of feminism : the theory of political, economical, and social equality of the sexes.


anti-sexism pin-up parody by Rion Sabean





Non! Tout cela est faux.
Il n'y a ni moutons laineux,
ni course à deux dans la prairie.
Il n'y a rien dehors.
Et ici, bien à l'abri,
je suis seule, tranquille inentamée.
Mon nom est Suzanne.
Je suis nue, mais intacte.
Je suis innocente et dure.
Mes yeux sont vides.
C'est vous, seulement,
qui posez sur mon corps ce regard troublé.

Rêves de jeunes filles, Alain Robbe-Grillet

Fucking Åmål

Enfermée pour quelle faute, imaginaire,
la trop jeune captive attend,
Prisonnière de l'été trop lourd
aux après-midi trop longues, promise à quoi?
elle s'est mise elle-même au secret.
Elle ne veut savoir si la raison
ni la durée de sa pénitence.
La fenêtre grande ouverte donne sur des murs,
où, faussement pensive, elle ne lit rien.
De l'autre côté de son cachot, il y a la glace,
qui lui renvoie seulement sa propre image,
mais sur laquelle longuement elle observe - 
elle imagine - la promesse naissante
des fautes qu'on l'a condamnée à commettre,
et pourquoi on l'a punie.

When you have an idol you're like "OMG I think that person's so amazing", and then you find out they're horrible, and you're like "Oh right, because the reason I think that person is amazing is because they're reflecting something amazing in me.

When you love someone you're the one who's doing the loving, you're the person who's great enough to give that love. It's not about that other person.

Love Conquers All

"If you’re straight, you’ve always known you can get married if and whenever you damn well please, and so maybe it doesn’t seem like such a big deal to you. Or maybe, no matter what your sexual orientation, you just think marriage is a BS heterosexist institution anyway, so no one should be fighting for it. 
Well, I’ll give you that: Marriage was created as a heterosexist and sexist institution, and has been perpetuated in that vein for decades. But (a) if things like work, dating, child-rearing, and computer programming can be transformed to be more inclusive, so can marriage; and (b) whatever—this isn’t actually about marriage, this is about recognizing gay people as equal to straight people
Seeing us as full people. People as good as anybody else. 
You can, as a straight person, get married by going through a drive-thru chapel in Vegas, you can get and stay married for exactly 55 hours, and that’s still considered a legal, valid marriage. 
If straight people have access to a silly retrograde tradition, so should we."

On the left we have the lyrics from Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines. 
On the right we rape survivors participating in Project Unbreakable, showing the various things that were said to them by their rapist.



I just don't think that not feeling special should feel like a failure, especially when you're still trying to figure out who you are and what you like. (…) Because what if when you're in a mood, when you feel sad and stuck, it's just more therapeutic for you to write down someone else's words than your own?
