You’d better put your fancy clothes on, because Episode 3 is here.

And we’re going to a party.

You’re going to want to stop what you’re doing and watch this episode.

So far, the worst of it involved passing a gaggle of lively teenage girls, and one exclaimed, “What a silver fox!” Otherwise, strangers will generally categorize me as a mutant, and not as an octogenarian. 

I want to base a character after this look. Gorgeous and interesting and I want to know more just at a glance.

Cyberpunk Q’s

So I’ve had some story ideas trolling around in the back of my mind (very distracting when I’m trying to focus on other things, lemmie tell ya). And I wanted to pick your brain a bit.

What are your favorite aspects of the Cyberpunk genre?

What would you like to see less of?

What do you feel you never see (that should be) in this genre?

I really genuinely want this.

Oh, this is cool, but I bet it’s one of those insanely expensive things I’ll never be able to have in a million years.

OHWAITLOOK IT’S $22 HOLY CRAP

Some assembly required, but it looks fun to assemble. AND THOSE RESULTS HOLY CRAP

Yep, added to my wishlist, for sure!

$22?!? I know what want for Christmas this year…

Ooh, this was on my nerd gift list! It’s also SCIENTIFICALLY ACCURATE. Based off of pictures from a Japanese Satellite.

This makes me think of Lyz and I just started giggling uncontrollably.

I was never good at math but
odds were that I had a
one in seven billion chance
of meeting someone like you
so that means I was more likely
to be struck by lightning or
to win the lottery with a
one in three thousand and
one in 175 million chance,
respectively, and all I can say is
God, I am the luckiest person
to be able to fall in love with you.

The odds have never been more in my favor (via ink-trails)

tl;dr:

Showing empathy and understanding does not mean you are in someone’s pocket.  Apologizing for something is not weakness. Calling out and talking about something problematic is not bad. Freedom of speech does not mean you are free from criticism. What really makes me sad about the whole situation is words are powerful things, and more so when so many people look up to you and take your word as law.

Feminism is not about who opens the jar.

It is not about who pays for the date. It is not about who moves the couch. It is not about who kills the bugs. It is not about who cooks the dinner. It’s not even about who stays home with the kids, as long as the decision was made together, after thinking carefully about your situation and coming to an agreement that makes sense for your particular marriage and family.

It is about making sure that nobody ever has to do anything by “default” because of their gender. The stronger person should move the couch. The person who enjoys cooking more, has more time for it, and/or is better at it should do the cooking. Sometimes the stronger person is male, sometimes not. Sometimes the person who is best suited for cooking is female, sometimes not. You should do what works.

But it is also about letting people know that it is okay to change. If you’re a woman who wants to become stronger, that’s great. If you’re a man who wants to learn how to cook, that’s also great. You might start out with a relationship where the guy opens all the jars and the girl cooks all the meals, but you might find that you want to try something else. So try it.

The doctor will never be a woman. There are plenty of women in the show that are admirable role models. I think you're just full ofsh it. Stop pushing your american views onto Doctor Who, a BRITISH show, with BRITISH values. It's unbelievable how obnoxious and hypocritical feminists are, especially you third-wave feminists. Always spouting "equal rights" but, "Can't hit me, cause I'm a girl!" You probably won't respond to this because you know I'm right and the whovianfeminism stance is weak.

This was so beautiful that I had to put it up on my wall and examine it as if it were an exquisite piece of art.

"Manpain" by Anonymous

Above we have a quintessential example of early 21st Century prose by an aggrieved man. The author of this piece is unknown, but we can surmise by his inability to properly say “shit” to a woman and his assurance that he likes “admirable” female characters that he is most likely a “Nice Guy.”

The anonymous author employs deliberate obtuseness in order to provoke a reaction from his audience. Notice how he pretends no British individual supports the idea of a woman portraying the Doctor, despite clear evidence to the contrary, even amongst actors who have portrayed the titular character on the show. Then there is the stunning self-centeredness regarding his perception of third wave feminism; he is only interested in equality it grants him the “right” to hit the women whose arguments make him so incoherently angry that he is unable to rationally reply.

His final challenge attempts to trap the reader. Do we respond and grant him the audience and validation he so desperately seeks, or do we ignore him and let him believe he has won? But perhaps we have a third option: to turn the focus back on him and examine how his comments display his deep insecurity in his own sense of masculinity, something he feels can only be reclaimed by challenging a girl on the internet to a fight and preemptively declaring victory because he fears he cannot engage with her on an intellectual level.

a work of goddamn art oh my god
