so the duke and duchess of cambridge have been touring australia and they’ve had aboriginal performances (traditional and not), visited uluru, among other things and it just rubs me so much the wrong way.

we don’t even learn about aboriginal culture and history in school. australian history classes begin with the first fleet and skip all the brutalities to the gold rush and then casually mention the stolen gen while praising all the white men in wwi.

it’s like we don’t want to acknowledge the shit we’ve done in the past or even acknowledge the existence of aboriginal people and culture until some swanky foreigners come ashore and suddenly OH LOOK AT OUR INDIGENOUS CULTURE LOOK HOW DIVERSE AND ACCEPTING WE ARE I AM YOU ARE WE ARE AUSTRALIAN

If owning a gun and knowing how to use it worked, the military would be the safest place for a woman. It’s not.

If women covering up their bodies worked, Afghanistan would have a lower rate of sexual assault than Polynesia. It doesn’t.

If not drinking alcohol worked, children would not be raped. They are.

If your advice to a woman to avoid rape is to be the most modestly dressed, soberest and first to go home, you may as well add “so the rapist will choose someone else”.

If your response to hearing a woman has been raped is “she didn’t have to go to that bar/nightclub/party” you are saying that you want bars, nightclubs and parties to have no women in them. Unless you want the women to show up, but wear kaftans and drink orange juice. Good luck selling either of those options to your friends.

Steve Rogers' 1930s/1940s neighbourhood →

nowolveshere:

In fact, if Steve goes back to his old neighbourhood in Brooklyn, one of the things he might miss the most is the loss of the working class gay community. The hipstery character of the area today is not just non-working-class, but not nearly as queer and fabulous as it would’ve been in Steve’s day.

"So, there you go. Steve Rogers’ neighbourhood in the 1930s and 1940s was gay. If he didn’t trip over someone fucking a sailor when he was walking home at night, I’d be surprised."

Deadpool #10

is deadpool even a real comic

My neighbor tried to tell me Deadpool wasn’t a little gay and when i mentioned Spiderman he went “yeah, yeah okay.”

my favourite thing is how angry rob liefeld gets whenever someone writes characters he created as queer. it’s like no one gives a fuck about the opinions of homophobes

Author Scott Lynch responds to a critic of the character Zamira Drakasha, a black woman pirate in his fantasy book Red Seas Under Red Skies, the second novel of the Gentleman Bastard series. →

vojuu:

fuckyeahscifiwomenofcolour:

The bolded sections represent quotes from the criticism he received. All the z-snaps are in order.

Your characters are unrealistic stereotpyes of political correctness. Is it really necessary for the sake of popular sensibilities to have in a fantasy what we have in the real world? I read…

So funny thing, I actually saw this and read it a long, long time ago (years ago, I think). At that time I’d heard of Scott Lynch but I’d never read the Gentlemen Bastards series. As such I still thought this complaining asshole was a sexist jerk but I didn’t really have context. I mean, yeah maybe Zamira could’ve been written all heavy handed (y’know how some authors like to keep telling you certain things about certain characters all the time) about being a lady pirate, I dunno.

Flash forward to now, where I’m currently reading Red Seas Under Red Skies. Once I got to Zamira a lightbulb flashed, and as I kept reading I realized why she seemed familiar, and I did a google search for this little article and, hey, it’s the same character! And now that I actually have context, this guy comes off as SERIOUSLY INCREDIBLY SEXIST like Scott Lynch does an amazing job with the little quirks of his world. Just like how for us it’s like yeah black cats are unlucky but four leaf clovers are good luck, for them cats on ships are lucky and women are better sailors. It’s not heavy handed at all. It makes sense. At no point does anything in Scott Lynch’s world seem to preach equality, I’m not even sure if his world is equal, it could be very unequal for all I know, but what I DO know is that every role, no matter male or female, makes sense within the context.

Like seriously, in that world women are perceived as a) luckier and b) better sailors. It’s like a societal expectation. Therefore, it makes sense that there are more women sailors. Duh. It’s exactly like how in our world women are regarded as better caregivers resulting in more lady nurses. Duh.

Basically what I’m saying is that that dude really confused political correctness with being a good writer. And anyway who the fuck trusts a person who complains about unrealistic characters in a fantasy novel?

I had the same experience, reading the books months after reading the original post and realising a) what a douche that guy was and b) what a good writer/decent human being Scott Lynch is.

Also, if you can have a world where sorcerers fight magic wars, and where orphans are recruited into a religion which trains them in the art of the heist, then why the hell can’t you have a woman of colour be both a loving mother and a badass pirate captain?

If you’re going to make up your own imaginary world where you have complete control over the culture and superstitions, why would you want to stick to the same old (typically bigoted) conventions used in the real world?

Fun shark attack facts:

  • In 1996, toilets injured 43,000 Americans a year. Sharks injured 13.
  • In 1996, 2,600 Americans were injured by room fresheners. Sharks injured 13.
  • In 1996, buckets and pails injured almost 11,000 Americans. Sharks injured 13.
  • For every human killed by a shark, humans kill approximately two million sharks.

Conclusions:

  1. Humans are assholes.
  2. Sharks are not assholes.
  3. Apparently everyone in 1996 lived in a real-life infomercial.
