Quote

"Only American audiences ask me, “What should I do?” I’m never asked this in third world. When you go to Turkey or Colombia or Brazil, they don’t ask you, “What should I do?” They tell you what they’re doing… These are poor, oppressed people, living under horrendous condition, and they would never dream of asking you what they should do. It’s only in high privileged cultures like ours that people ask this question… We can do anything. But people here are trained to believe that there are easy answers, and it doesn’t work that way. If you want to do something, you have to be dedicated and committed to it day after day. Educational programs, organizing, activism. That’s the way things change. You want a magic key, so you can go back to watching television tomorrow? It doesn’t exist."

write women who take no shit. write women who are compassionate, write women who take care of others, write women who stand up for themselves, write women who will not hold her tongue. write women who can outsmart and outwit supervillains. write women who break a hundred years of white male meta-narrative traditions.

and then watch as a white feminists go arse over elbows for reasons to ignore and undermine them because they’re not white.

look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to

"The question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be… The nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists."

"MLK Jr

You call me an extremist to insult me. I say it puts me in good company. 

but did MLK advocate the oppressed being hateful or behaving hatefully towards their oppressors, necessarily? Like he said, it depends on the KIND of extremist you choose to be, fandomsandfeminism.

(via happysmiles-sadeyes)

Go read his Letter from Birmingham Jail. MLK did not advocate people coddle those who benefit from their oppression. He has some pretty damning things to say about white people, ESPECIALLY white moderates who pulled tone argument bullshit. 

"I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection."

i love this haha

(about the tags) this is actually the stage filmed version of the 1982 if I am not wrong?

I love this. As much as I prefer the Vanessa Redgrave’s version… this one is just perfect and it hs everything (almost) without many cuts. And I love Meg Busset.

yay also all the musical is on youtube

If you look closely at this picture of Beauty and the Beast, you can see snow on the ground.

Hmmm.

This must mean that Belle is Elsa and Anna’s second cousin twice removed and that the Beast is one of Hans 12 brothers and that Gaston and Olaf are twins. 

Damn Disney. You really outdid yourself with this one. Well played. 

This is the only fan theory I will support and reblog.

Hey, they should do a reverse version of Faking It where a couple of lesbians pretend to be straight so they’re accepted!
They could call it “Real Life”.
