“Patriarchy has always had room for the Exceptional Woman — the one woman smart enough, sweet enough, strong enough, soft enough, pure enough, sexy enough to satisfy all of our culture’s contradictory demands on women, and thus make it to the top of a sexist system on merit alone. Patriarchy needs that woman. She provides men with an excuse to blame women for their own pain and struggles while simultaneously assuring women that sexism only needs to be outwitted to be overcome. She tells us that the system is survivable for women — you simply have to be the right kind of woman.”
- Sady Doyle, on the myth of the Exceptional Woman (via madlori)

So, the “worst book you had to read for school” thread makes me sad, since there’s so many books I love in the list.

So, do people want to play with me and say their favorite book they had to read for school?

Antigone by Jean Annouilh

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

Henry IV part 1.

Macbeth

Robert Browning, Men and Women

The Tempest.

Hamlet

William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying

I actually really loved Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea

bless me, ultima by rudolfo anaya

Oh my gosh someone else said old man and the seaaaaaaa

The Martian Chronicles, Ray Bradbury

or East of Eden, John Steinbeck, I can’t choose

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

Hamlet by William Shakespeare (literally this story is HILARIOUS)

Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko. I had to read that for college. 

A Tale of Two Cities

Jane Eyre

Dang it, I was gonna say A Tale of Two Cities. Umm… well, in that case, I’ll have to go with Sister Outsider.

Really hard to pick but one was Bridge to Terabithia.

I actually liked Catcher in the Rye.

The Devine Comedy

The Crucible

or maybe A Man for All Seasons

and it’s not a book but A Rose For Emily changed my world when i was 12

The Awakening and Great Expectations

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky and Jane Eyre.

I was a budding nihilist by grade 11.

Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe.

Ugh… There are too many!

Pride and Prejudice and Wuthering Heights

A Tale of Two Cities, obviously. But since that’s been said I’ll go with Death in Venice.

Doctor Faustus

Their Eyes were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. 

My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee 

Those are the only books I still own from school, around 15 years later.

Coming to an Emerald City Comicon near you! (Near as in… if you live in the pacific northwest.) Swing by booth # 945 and say hi!

Some wiggly snow play time. We bring the snow into their exhibit bucket by bucket. It’s a labor of love.

The first gay Disney character is literally named The Fool

He’s unrequitedly in love with a straight man

A straight man who bullies and abuses him

Le Fou will 99% likely NOT get a happy ending

He’s being played by someone known to be straight

His sexuality is basically a joke

His sexuality is likely to be the butt of a joke the entire movie

We already know the character will be the butt of the joke even if his sexuality itself isn’t

His entire role in the movie is to be evil and stupid comic relief and boost Gaston’s self-esteem 

He’s described as “confused” 

Queercoding villains and Disney go together like peanut butter and jelly 

Disney is patting itself on the back for all of this

His character description is stereotypical

Le Fou being gay for Gaston is already something of a cultural joke

He’s barely in the movie

He’s the only gay person in a love story, he will end up alone and evil

People have been saying how you could improve the story by making it gay for years and of all the ideas this is the worst possible option for picking a gay character

We coulda had lesbian Beast

Kids will have this as their first gay Disney character

For some kids this will be their first gay character period

It will be their ONLY gay Disney character

They chose to make a shot for shot remake of the animated movie with the most whitebread actors and the only thing they want to change up is making the evil fool gay

Disney could get away with any kind of lgbt character because they are a monolith yet they choose this
