let’s talk about what a fab human dan radcliffe is…





My class today

  • Me: So when you see the 4 year old boy pull the little girl's hair...
  • Students: He likes her!
  • Me: Now they are around 11 or 12 and he grabs her arm and wrestles her to the ground even though she calls him a jerk and yells at him to leave her alone.
  • Students: That is just how boys are.
  • Me: Now they are 18 and he grabs her arm and--
  • Students: Oh, that's not okay.
  • Me: Really? How would he know? How would she know? How would you know? You just told me that for the first 17 years of these children's lives that you thought it was cute, sweet, and natural for a boy to grab a girl and be rough with her.
  • Students: Oh.
  • Me: Oh, is right.

Don’t you hate it when a well-rounded character is eroded down to just one facet? And when I say facet I mean appearance.

Repeat after me: Mai is a complex, many-sided character who is more than just legs and a cleavage.

Most women in the modern Western world have no space of our own in the home—no den, basement workshop, garage, outside domain, or special chair in the living room. Though the kitchen and bedroom often are thought of as “her” rooms, they are hers only as spaces in which she is expected to provide services to and for her man. Private space—space in which she can just be, space where she does not have to justify her presence by being engaged in work—is nonexistent unless she actively creates and maintains it.

"Loving to Survive" Graham (via kingcobracommander)

and its interesting that when watching tv or reading things the “man cave” always gets brought up as a half joke but really more serious thing that every man “needs” but then when women have craft rooms or other similar things related to their own interest it is always the butt of a joke (haha silly wimminz wanting space of their own)

space in which she can just be, space where she does not have to justify her presence by being engaged in work—is nonexistent unless she actively creates and maintains it.

This is it.  Basically, this is what it is like to be a woman in the world.  Not just in a home, but everywhere.  We have to justify our presence by being attractive or doing useful work like taking care of men and children.  Space is not given to us.  We must take it for ourselves, carve it out.

I made these as a way to compile all the geographical vocabulary that I thought was useful and interesting for writers. Some descriptors share categories, and some are simplified, but for the most part everything is in its proper place. Not all the words are as useable as others, and some might take tricky wording to pull off, but I hope these prove useful to all you writers out there!

The enemy? His sense of duty was no less than yours, I deem. You wonder what his name is, where he came from. And if he really was evil at heart. What lies or threats led him on this long march from home. If he would not rather have stayed there…in peace.



You a pilot? 

No, not yet. But I wanna be one, more than anything.
