If you wear a hijab, niqab or even burqa, don’t expect me to take you seriously if you tell me how free and liberated you are.
"I’m going to withhold giving you the respect you deserve because I disagree your choice of dress, most likely because I’m an ethnocentrist, an Islamophobe, and an imperialist."
That translation is on point
they’re also sexist
Knowing that I didn’t need to be there until two, I was out and ready to bump into people at midday. Even on days I’m planning on going out, that is incredibly early. My friend and I walked about until we started seeing other early people and sat in a restaurant for an hour past that waiting. Just waiting. Telling the waitress that we wanted tables was easier than I thought it’d be, especially considering we wanted them for perhaps twenty people.
Being the mature people my friends are, they decided to mix various sauces and spices and drinks together and attempted to down it. Two of them tried. Both almost vomited. Not taking them two anywhere ever again, I think. They can stay at home. It was fun, still. Nice to see some of the people that left last year. Nice to be out with all of them. I made the fatal mistake of not recognising the time for what it was and had to rush home only to find out that my mum didn’t need to leave for work as early as I’d thought.
My friend stayed over last night. We watched High School Musical. Why I have seen so many movies from that franchise this month, I’d love to understand. Also watched Pitch Perfect but there are large chunks out the end of that that I can’t remember seeing. How little work would I get done if sleep could take over as easily as it does as night?
(All I can feel in the pit of my stomach is the homework and revision I haven’t done for this week and it’s not fun because my schools has an unhealthy fixation on mock exams.)
" There are many types of monsters that scare me: Monsters who cause trouble without showing themselves, monsters who abduct children, monsters who devour dreams, monsters who suck blood… and then, monsters who tell nothing but lies. Lying monsters are a real nuisance: They are much more cunning than others. They pose as humans even though they have no understanding of the human heart; they eat even though they’ve never experienced hunger; they study even though they have no interest in academics; they seek friendship even though they do not know how to love. If I were to encounter such monsters, I would likely be eaten by them… because in truth, I am that monster. ”
the year is 2014
Idris Elba has been asked to play every single role and every single movie
it is a year of change and delight.
lucy liu plays every role that he declines. every movie and tv show is just idris elba and lucy liu acting with each other. entire crowd scenes are just cgi idris elba and lucy liu in various outfits. idris elba in a dragon costume. lucy liu as spiderman. 2014 the best year ever
sometimes I think back to the interviews Christopher Eccleston did while he was the Doctor and how he talked about how great it was that the series was moving away from the sexism of previous series and then I look at the show now and I just feel so sad
Wait. Not sad. What’s the other thing?
I don’t think so. Otherwise extinguish this? What are you doing
