I feel like this photo set sums up the entire series. The men talk about doing shit; the women get shit done.
I CAN’T NOT WATCH GAME OF THRONES AFTER SEEING THIS
I am sorry for the non-book related post but its been 10 minutes and I am still laughing.
This is what Bella’s reaction should have been.
Have you ever noticed that the people who start crying about how “We’re equaaaal! We are human beeeiiiings and you are being just as bad as the people you say oppress you!” also happen to be the very same people who go “if you’re not nice to us we won’t give you your rights.”
They are perfectly aware that there is an imbalance of power and justice in their favor, and they like it.
I really agree completely with the first sentiment, but I DONT think the majority of people with the privilege are aware (especially when there’s intersection). I think that’s the point and the problem / a root of why the system is perpetuated. There’s a really heavy ignorance factor and it doesn’t always come from a place lacking in good intentions but pure blatant ignorance and the work of ego…
sorry i’m late, professor. i’m disenchanted with the human experience and waking up every morning thrusts me into an instant existential crisis
i’ve come to the sad conclusion that to get the body i want, i need to run. i hate running…unless it’s sprinting..but what i need to do is lots and lots of running. ugh.
That’s not necessarily true, I’m a strong proponent of the concept that humans were not designed for sustained running but rather short spurts of intense sprinting/excursive and physically intense lifestyles. It’s not something I abide by completely — but look up crossfit and basically all of the principles behind it if you’re not already aware of the sport. I like customize all of that according to myself. If i had to run to be fit and get the body i wanted i would be extraordinarily disappointed in life: The only thing that has ever worked for me, appropriately stimulated me, and given me the physical conditioning level I wanted at the same time was *martial arts*
