Men, I would like to give this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue, too. To date, I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society. I’ve seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man. I’ve seen men fragile and insecure by what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either. We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are. When they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are. We can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle so their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human, too and in doing so, be a more true and complete version of themselves - Emma Watson for HeForShe UN campaign

I want to talk to people but fuck I’m so tired I don’t have the energy to keep up a conversation.

delphine: [long and giddy and flustered explanation implying a reassessment of her sexuality in light of cosima and that she very well may feel the same for cosima as cosima does for her]

cosima: yeah, ditto, obvs

scott: [incredibly heartfelt acknowledgement and appreciation of her as an intelligent and admirable human being first and foremost in the face of learning about both her life-threatening illness and cloneage]

cosima: okay

i-effed-it-all-up:

i spent so much of my life being taught to hate famous women that now i find it physically impossible to judge them anymore. Beyoncé could pierce her entire face n I’d be like that’s her choice. Kristen Stewart could yell “fuck you” at a small child and i’d be like yeah, fuck that kid! Nicki Minaj could kill a man and I’d be like he probably deserved it

amen  

Once a ballerina, always a ballerina….

okay, but let’s take a moment to acknowledge the constant irony of karma ashcroft.

she apologizes to amy for being so self-centered, in a conversation that accidentally becomes all about her, then proceeds to apologize for that, but then spends the entire first half of the episode giving amy none of the time or space she’s begging for (albeit for different reasons than karma thinks).

amy i’m sorry right now i want to talk about this right now because even though i’ve finally admitted that i’m a terrible friend, all of this groveling and relationship-mending is going to happen on my schedule and on my terms.

like, i get feeling absolutely awful about your decisions and wanting to expedite the make-up process, but rushing/crowding the person you hurt completely misses the point of trying to be a better friend.

Please excuse me while I walk over your husband’s corpse like he’s nothing and upon entering the room, ignore your traumatised child in his crib and instead clutch your lifeless body in a demonstration of my love for you: creepy and entirely unhelpful

i love how everyone just knows what this is referencing

i dont and i am slightly mortified

"I have the choice of being constantly active and happy or introspectively passive and sad. Or I can go mad by ricocheting in between."
"At some point it becomes true that all stories
are love stories. all making, love making.
I didn’t make this rule. but it binds me
all the same. I wish there were a law
against condescending against love. against
the economy of fear that says your joy
means less joy for me as if love
were pie, or money, or fossil fuel
dug or pumped from the earth, gone
when it’s gone. it’s just not true. the heart
with its gift for magnificent expansion
is not coal. not fruit set to spoil or the dollar
cringing in its wallet. when you say darling,
the world lights up at its edges. when mouths
find mouths and minds follow or minds find
minds and mouths, hands, hips, toes, follow –
how about you call that sacred. how about you raise
your veined right hand and swear on the blood
that branches there, yes. I take this crush
to be my lawful infatuation. I will bend toward joy
until the bending’s its own pleasure. I will memorize
photographs and street maps, I will acquiesce
to the maudlin urgency of pop songs and dance,
and dance – there’s a perfection only the impossible kiss
possesses. there are notes you can only hear naked
in the dark of a room to which you will never
return. anything that moves the world toward light
is a blessing. why not take it with both hands,
lift it to your lips like a broth of stars. this
is the substance that holds our little atoms together
into bodies. this sweet paste of longing
is all that binds us to the earth.
and all we know of the gods."
