"Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems."

— Rainer Maria Rilke

(via hoodoothatvoodoo)

Spring. I miss spring. And autumn. And winter. We don’t really get those things here in Australia. Oh, yes, yes, yes, there are periods of the year people — risibly — refer to as those things, but it’s really nothing of the sort. I know exactly what Steinbeck meant when he said that California doesn’t have seasons, it has ‘climate’. No way I’ll ever interpret his statement as a flattering one.

More fashion hilarity from Penn & Berenson. The fun never stops!
… though which is the more hilarious — the hair or those earrings — is hard to decide. Let’s agree that the combination is … astounding!
I should add that this is Star Trek meets Liberace and astoundingness! ensues!

Cis is just short for cisgender no one uses it like a slur it’s just when people say “I hate cis people” they think it is but it’s literally like saying “I hate white people” like is white a slur????? NO!!!!!!!!!!! Neither is cis

Jesus christ you’re fucking…

"Homosexual" is a biological term referring to a same sex attraction!
"Negro" just means black!
"Fag" is just British slang for a cigarette!
"Dork" is just a whale penis!
"Bitch" is just a pregnant dog!

When people use these words, clearly they aren’t trying to insult, disparage, attack, or otherwise belittle a person for being a certain way! They are just talking about science and latin and quirky slang and the mating habits of domesticated animals! How can you be insulted by that?!

It’s not what words are being used but HOW they are being used, for fuck’s sake. It’s context. It’s the speaker’s intent and implications.

When someone calls out someone else for being a white, cisgendered, heterosexual person in a conversation where that person is trying to discredit or otherwise devalue their target’s opinion, that’s being insulting. It’s like saying, “I’m implying that all of those qualities, which you have no control over, make you inferior, less intelligent, and less credible, and less of a person, because I do not value any of those aspects.”

Don’t act like you don’t fucking know what you’re doing when you’re calling out individual aspects of a person.

Now here’s something I really like about the Modesty Blaise stories: Modesty and Willie are extremely close but their relationship is platonic. In fact they’re both of the firm opinion that having sex (with each other) would not benefit them at all. Although other characters are often curious, , there’s no suggestion of “will they or won’t they?” in the books or the comics.


I know some people like a bit of romantic tension but it’s ubiquitous in fiction and, personally, I find myself drifting away when shows such as Bones start focussing too much on the protagonists’ romantic relationship. It’s refreshing to see the portrayal of different kind of close relationship and one that doesn’t interfere with the overall story (or become the overall story). Instead we just have two people who are fiercely loyal to each other kicking bad-guy arse.

It was in Saigon that she first saw Willie Garvin — in Thai-style combat. Of lethal skills, he was gutter-bred with a mind clouded by unreasoning hatred. A week later she bought him out of jail — without strings. To a dazed Willie Garvin she seemed a princess … and “Princess” he called her from that time on.

Within six months a new Willie Garvin was born — a man of cheerful confidence, sharp intelligence, and all his old criminal skills …

Soon he was Modesty’s right arm in running The Network. Both were unique, both originals. They learnt much from one another. Through six years Willie Garvin served ‘The Princess’. Together they schemed, fought, bled, tended each others hurts… and grew very rich. - In The Beginning, Peter O’Donnell



I can’t tell you how much I agree with this sentiment. Friends. A man and a woman being friends. Not ‘just’ friends — which is a wholly idiotic expression anyway. Friends.

It was one of the things I really liked about Person of Interest: the fact that Reece and Carter became such friends; that deep mutual respect, that platonic love.
