Please restore my faith a little.

I do NOT mean excusing the wrongs and abuse that goes on within these industries. I mean supporting sex workers and their agency, and supporting them in their choices.

Literally all she did was point out misognyistic tropes in a video games, and this is the aftermath. Men continually prove feminism correct and necessary.

"That world wasn’t all just teacups and light social chit chat. There was a real world of mud and poverty and destitution. The Bennets had real risk of destitution. To a modern audience, the Bennets’ house is really conveyed that way, such as in the opening scene when Elizabeth goes through all that walking in her washing clothes.”

(Deborah Moggach, Screenwriter)

I’m not sure that the Bennets were at risk of anything close to the destitution of the truly poor in England at that time. While this is a nice little nod to it, I’d strongly recommend the book Longbourn by Jo Baker, which takes place over the same period as P&P and focuses (in a way these shots quite literally don’t focus) on the household servants and what is happening to them at that time.

'If Elizabeth Bennet had the washing of her own petticoats, Sarah often thought, she’d most likely be a sight more careful with them.'

and my kindle addiction is, yet again, fed. That ‘whooshing’ sound you hear is all of my money going away and me not even minding a bit.

I love telling people Nintendo is 125 years old because it seems like it’d be common knowledge but it’s actually something people gloss over because the year a company was founded isn’t really interesting most of the time

My gut reaction when I found out was “WHAT KINDS OF VIDEO GAMES DID THEY HAVE IN THE 19th CENTURY” and I think a lot of people have that same reaction. It’s silly. I love it

Pedro Pascal Explains the Ecstasy of Oberyn Martell - Making Game of Thrones

  • 1: In a previous episode, Oberyn is writing a poem for his daughter. Have you thought through his life in Dorne?
  • 2: I see him as an extremely contemporary, progressive and loving father. I think it's so suitable that he had nothing but daughters to raise. He doesn't shape ideas based on old conventions so his daughters are not limited by backwards, medieval morality.
  • 1: He's very emotionally intelligent.
  • 2: I think there's a depth in the way that Oberyn perceives the world and the way he lives in it. I think there's a lot of woman inside of Oberyn, which attributes to his strength.
  • 1: Can you explain what you mean by "a lot of woman"?
  • 2: Perceptiveness. Intelligence. In the world of 'Game of Thrones,' which can harshly reflect some of the darker elements of our reality, I would argue that women are often forced to be smarter and more in touch with themselves because their circumstances are so ruled by men. Women's survival skills kick in a bit earlier.
  • 1: Would you say that Oberyn is a feminist?
  • 2: Absolutely. Without choosing to be. It's just intrinsic and logical to him. Ellaria Sand is the love of his life because she is his equal, if not his superior, in certain ways. That's part of what makes him such a fierce man because he knows who to take his lead from.
