Scarves in order: Supernatural (x2), Sherlock, Doctor Who (x2), Harry Potter, Splinter Cell, and three of my favourite bands.

i’m quite amused by david tennant to be honest. besides the fact that he’s a brilliant actor and a gorgeous man, he’s also a hotter woman than me i mean
OH GOD HE’S SO BEAUTIFUL
he looks like Lorde
Does that make him a Time Lorde?
So I’ve thought of before of the acronym LGBT as almost like the members of a four-person band — Lead singer, Guitar, Bass and Trums…er, drums.
But this is actually a perfect conception of the dynamics at play among queer folks:
-Guitarists are spotlight-hoggers and want to take all the credit for themselves for the sound of a song even if they only come in halfway through and play for less than a minute, but while making the loudest noise of the band.
-Lead singers can be egotistical as well but are mocked if they don’t play an instrument as well because too often one’s voice isn’t seen as a “real” instrument. They are also expected to cater to the desires of the audience more than any other member.
-Bassists are often ignored or seen as “wannabe guitarists,” and they can be hard to hear unless they’re in a milieu that’s specifically suited to them.
-And trummers…er, drummers? Not only are they ignored as bassists are, they are outright disrespected a lot of the time and thought of as dispensable or easily replaced by machines. When in fact, not only do drums and drummers go back to ancient times, their work makes up the backbone of the whole damn band.
The first dozen times I heard this, I was horrified. But I heard it over and over again. I realized that many young men are not being taught the impact that sexual assault has on a woman. They are inundated by sexual imagery in the media, and often come to the (incorrect) conclusion that having sex is not a big deal. This, no doubt, is why the number of sexual assaults is so high.”
Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak, on the question “Have any readers ever asked questions that shocked you?”
Read that again. Read it again, and again, and again. Over and over guys have asked her why Melinda was so upset about being raped. This is a girl who went to a party with friends. She was thirteen. She had a drink, because everyone else was. And a senior held her down and raped her while she was too drunk to get away.
And guys don’t understand why she was upset.
Read that again and then come back and tell me again why I should just shut up and take a joke when a comedian blows off rape as a big deal, or women’s bodies are casually treated as commodities in media. Remind me why I shouldn’t care about the very real harm that society’s treatment of women and sexual assault does.
You know why women often say “nothing’s wrong” when something is definitely bothering them
It’s because men have been belittling, minimizing and mocking our emotions forever
And we are socialized to be as passive and undemanding and selfless as possible, and not to run any risk of bothering or angering a man lest he abandon or hurt us
It’s not passive aggression, it is fear
oh my god
