I think you need to fall in love with the wrong person. I think you need to fight and cry and sweat and bleed and fail. I think you need to have bad relationships and bad breakups. I think you need all of that so that when the right person and the right relationship comes along you can sigh with relief and say, “Ah yes. That is how it’s supposed to feel.”

Quote 17 Apr 611 notes
Back when George W. Bush was president, liberals were regularly accused of being disloyal or anti-American if they disagreed with the policies the administration was undertaking. As Bush himself said, you were either with us or with the terrorists, and as far as many of his supporters were concerned, “us” meant the Bush administration and everything they wanted to do, including invading Iraq. You may have noticed that now that there’s a Democrat in the White House, conservatives no longer find disagreeing with the government’s policies to be anti-American; in fact, the truest patriotism is now supposedly found among those whose hatred of the president, and the government more generally, burns white-hot in the core of their souls.

contraception:

to put it simply jokes about oppressive majorities help create a dialogue about oppression and allow the oppressed an outlet about the shit they have to put up and if you’re willing to say that’s wrong and further silence the oppressed because ‘not all straight people are like that!!’ and you don’t want your feelings hurt or because you think it’s better to conform to the ideals of the oppressors and just ‘be nice’ then i’m sorry you deserve nothing bye

Quote 17 Apr 4,562 notes
Criticisms about representations of gender (or race and other diversity) are often countered in fandom by sociological or scientific analyses attempting to explain why the inequality happens according to the internal logic of the fictional world. As though there is any real reason that anything happens in a story except that someone chose to write it that way.

Fiction is not Darwinian: It contains no impartial process of evolution that dispassionately produces the events of a fictional universe. Fiction is miraculously, fundamentally Creationist. When we make worlds, we become gods. And gods are responsible for the things they create, particularly when they create them in their own image.

— 

Laura Hudson writes about the shotage of women characters in Star Wars fore Wired.com in her article "Leia is not enough:  Star Wars and the woman problem in Hollywood."

"Science fiction in particular has always offered a vision of the world not myopically limited by the world as it exists, but liberated by the power of imagination. Perhaps more than any genre of storytelling, it has no excuse to exclude women for so-called practical reasons — especially when it has every reason to imagine a world where they are just as heroic, exceptional, and well-represented as men."

representation fucking matters.

   Toph is my hero, she really is! When I went through HELL; spent one entire summer in the hospital when I had only turned 14 a month and a half before that. I had one christmas where I couldn’t help with ANYTHING, not even setting the table because I couldn’t lift or any like that (I wasn’t supposed to put pressure on my eyes, for FOUR weeks due to recovery). I went blind on one eye (later it turned out to be cataract; little did we know back then). I missed my 18th birthday and had seven eye surgeries in total and they told me to keep in mind that I could go blind at an younger age than average because of all that.     But you know what, Toph gave me HOPE and STRENGTH. She showed me that even if I’d go completely blind; it’s not the end of the world and there are other ways to ‘see’. She is my fucking hero and nobody will EVER change that!

Quote 16 Apr 20,579 notes
If you are 35 or younger - and quite often, older - the advice of the old economy does not apply to you. You live in the post-employment economy, where corporations have decided not to pay people. Profits are still high. The money is still there. But not for you. You will work without a raise, benefits, or job security. Survival is now a laudable aspiration.
— 

Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy

In the United States, nine percent of computer science majors are unemployed, and 14.7 percent of those who hold degrees in information systems have no job. Graduates with degrees in STEM - science, technology, engineering and medicine - are facing record joblessness, with unemployment at more than twice pre-recession levels. The job market for law degree holders continues to erode, with only 55 percent of 2011 law graduates in full-time jobs. Even in the military, that behemoth of the national budget, positions are being eliminated or becoming contingent due to the sequester.

It is not skills or majors that are being devalued. It is people.”

Her work is frank, speaking of a reality I hope that will never be mine. At the same time, it gives me a strange comfort to know that I am not alone.

Those of us in human/social services are even more fucked than ever before, too. Like, we’ve always been an underpaid and overworked field, but lately, yeah, it’s all, “Hey, we want a Master’s degree for this position that pays $22K a year!” Like, what the fuck. No one can live on that shit, yo.
