Erin. 22. Writer. Activist. Lover of pretty things. There will be fandom posts interspersed with activist posts, all appearing with a side order of personal ramblings. Expect ranting. And waffling. And pretty things. All the pretty things.




friendly reminder that spirit animals are a sacred concept in a variety of religions worldwide (many of them being aboriginal religions that are at risk of destruction by european colonialism) and are not a way to joke about your admiration for something

Excellent alternative: Patronus





If you refuse to raise a male child in the future, you are the problem.

If you say “die cis scum” instead of making an effort for actual equality, you are the problem.

If you refuse to listen to a doctor, someone who has years of medical training, about your health situation because they are ‘fat shaming’ you, you are the problem.

If you choose to disrespect someone else due to the bullshit excuse of ‘priviledge’, you are the problem.

This post gives me life

If you refuse to raise a male child in the future, then it’s no one’s business because you’re not obligated to create more people of any gender.

If you say “die cis scum,” I assume a cis person is making the problem and therefore are the target of your frustration. Sorry about that, we cis people need to try harder and some of us aren’t making an effort to hear you.

If you refuse to listen to a doctor, someone who has years of medical training, yet still relies on weight as the sole standard of health because it makes billing insurance easier, then that doctor isn’t a very good doctor and you shouldn’t listen to them because they’re not going to give you good healthcare anyway.

If you choose to disrespect someone else because of their privilege, then chances are extremely good that their privilege disrespected you first.




And he is so cute too… Osric talks about how he wanted to be stunt guy, but he wasn’t good enough so he became an actor. HE STILL DOES THIS THOUGH. BECAUSE HE IS FOLLOWING HIS DREAMS. ANY. WAY. HE. CAN. 

This has been me telling you: if you don’t love Osric Chau, you are doing it wrong.

You don’t understand how important this moment was to me. Kieren is eighteen years old, he suffers from severe anxiety and depression, he’s being accused of something he didn’t do, and, as a result, he lashes out. This reaction is completely understandable. And yet, because he is a PDS sufferer, they take the innate humanness of the outburst and twist it to make him seem inhuman. This is what happens when you are part of an oppressed groupThey push you, and push you, and you keep your head down, and nothing changes - and when eventually you snap, act out in anger and frustration because you can’t take it any more, they take that reaction and turn it around to justify their oppression. This is the moment when Kieren realises he cannot win. Whatever he does, he will always be a monster. 

What does PDS stand for?

It stands for ‘Partially Deceased Syndrome’. Basically, he is a zombie who has been medicated and rehabilitated back into the community. If you haven’t seen ‘In The Flesh’ then YOU TOTALLY SHOULD IT’S AMAZING.


Hello, my name is Strong Female Character, and my secret power is reaffirming the heterosexuality of the disproportionately male cast.


instead of putting completely able bodied actors in wheelchairs, crutches, shades, hearing aids, cg amputated and prosthetic limbs, and generally pretending to be disabled why don’t you consider:
- having actual disabled actors as disabled characters
