I feel like this photo set sums up the entire series. The men talk about doing shit; the women get shit done.
Basically yes. Actually Tyrion and Littlefinger are the only two male characters who actually accomplish things and Littlefinger is the villain of the piece (IMO) so. Yes.
We recently got an ask from someone who was wondering if we could (privately) please explain the difference between saying “colored people” and “people of color.” This, in tandem with the amount of asks we’ve gotten where people use the term “colored person” I thought it was important to make this clear for why we don’t like this term. And even though this is easily Google-able, we’re sick and tired of seeing people using this in our askbox so here’s a one stop source.
The term “colored people” has been around for a loooooong time. White people used it to mean anyone who was nonwhite, but was mostly used to refer to black people in a derogatory and patronizing way. “Colored people” was invented by white people in order to be Othering and discriminatory. Now we understand the term means something different in some places, but when we hear/refer to this term, the definition we just gave you is the one that matters to us.
The term “people of color” as we use it today is much more recent, gaining popularity in the 1970s and 1980s in order to mean any person who is nonwhite. Franz Fanon is often credited as first using the term in order to talk about racism in a more inclusive way. “People of color” as we know it was coined in order to connect “minorities” (ugh) in order to celebrate our differences while acknowledging the racism and prejudices that we all face.
Some people do not like the term PoC because it can be erasing if individual groups and people, but I think it’s more about being in solidarity with one another. It is a term that we have created and that we chose to identify as. Sometimes PoC use the term “colored people” to refer to themselves or their works (like Ntozake Shange’s For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf) and that’s okay because that’s our word to reclaim and our word to use.
But at the end of the day if someone is asking you not to call them something because it is offensive then do not call them that. We do not want to be referred to as “colored women,” and will delete any ask that comes at us using the term “colored people.” So stop using it.

It’s looking like I need to post something about this again…
at a hella cool castle
the groom channeled Thranduil and the Baratheons
the bridesmaids were elf maidens
the court jester and town crier were there
the cakes were gorgeous
luckily a friar was passing through town who was able to officiate (“mawwaige,” he said, “is what bwings us togevver today”)
the bride’s chariot was pulled by the most beautiful creature
unfortunately, as with all medieval weddings, there is the dragon problem
If you think your mom overreacts just remember once my mom cancelled our trip to New York because I refused to eat the meatloaf she made
my mom accused me of selling my birth certificate and social security to the black market when she couldn’t find them
•Stand next to your chosen partner
•Wait until you get S Rank support
•Congratulations you are now married
•Don’t talk to them ever again
Your brain is such a worthless slacker. I’ll prove it.
Relax and stare at this image for a while. After said while (thirty seconds…ish), the colours will begin to disappear (no it’s not a gif). You can even make them go away completely.
What’s happening is called Troxler’s Fading. After a while of receiving the same non-changing information, your brain gets bored and just discards the information because it’s too busy keeping an eye out for more pressing, changing information, like tiger attacks.
You know how when you wear a watch for a while you stop noticing it. Same thing. Your brain is an idiot.
It is pretty though.
Hi, thank you for being you! Why was Anders chosen over Velanna as the returning character in DA2? I read somewhere she was suppose to be in DA2
it always disappointed me that Monster Girls are an anime porn thing rather than something used to explore the way society and the media dehumanises women, but oh well
shout out to all my fellow monsters
I am upset at this in quite a few ways.
Nothing directly stated. In point of fact, I too, am a monster. I live every day as a monster. I do my daily monster routine. Go shopping for monster groceries. Do monster chores. Monster bathe. Do monster odd jobs around the house. Go for monster walks.
Let me ask though. Have you ever called someone a neckbeard? Of course you have. I’m sure you’ve flung that insult around like candy at a Halloween parade. In this place of monsters and evil and us-versus-them-isms, it’s hard not to. I mean, look at them. They say mean things and LOOK AT HOW UGLY THEY ARE.
So that is what you do. That is what we all do. When someone wounds us we make monsters out of them too. Look at that shitlord huh? Boy what a neckbeard VIRGIN LOSER. Believe me. I should know. I’ve been called it so many times for disagreeing with these opinions. And why do I disagree with these opinions?
Because I don’t think that these are monsters. I don’t see monsters at all. I don’t see a world of monsters. Not even from the people who call you or I monsters. Even though you call me a monster and I think it’s wrong, I don’t see you as a monster. Someone told me on 4chan something and I refused to believe him at the time, but it gave me great hope. He didn’t see good or evil. He saw pain. And like I said, at that time, I didn’t believe him either and I don’t think you will believe me either. But that’s neither here nor there. Because I believe him now. No matter what you think of them, or of me, I don’t believe in monsters. These are people who are hurting and say things out of hurt. Maybe they were hurt and they see their pain in you and want to admonish their pain through you. How dare you not feel the same pain they felt for the same reason. Everyone should have to feel what they felt if they had to feel it.
And so too does it go with you and most of the community here that I have seen. “Oh but these misogynists DESERVE to be hurt. They DESERVE to be called these things. They don’t DESERVE tolerance.” And you make more little monsters. And they will make more monsters. And we will have a world of monsters. And people will go on believing in monsters for as long as there is a world to believe in monsters. That’s ok. We shouldn’t tolerate intolerance from MONSTERS. We shouldn’t HAVE to treat them like we would ourselves. We should treat PEOPLE equally.
We will drive ourselves to extinction and breed a race of monsters and the last men will die alone believing there is no such thing.
In more real terms and in less poetic drivel and nonsense:
I see this exact same behavior towards me and, well, to be blunt: men every day. Not a person says a thing about it. In point of fact, it usually comes from people identical to yourself, if not from you yourself exactly I would be severely surprised. If I chastise, it’s out of compassion, sympathy and empathy. Not hate or anger. Though I’d be lying if I didn’t feel a little upset at reading this; since it seems you’re a little oblivious to the way I see the community lash out and make the same comments back at other people. I see it and hear it all the time from the tumblr community. I’m not even overweight. However I will make the point more trenchant and clear by saying I fully anticipate the following insults to be thrown back at me; a list of insults that have already been thrown my way, mind you. Nothing that hasn’t already been said a million times.
- shitlord (by the way, I want to raise a point about this; lord is strictly male, by all definitions. Just thought I’d point that out.)
And what I get from other people doesn’t bother me as well. I don’t mind. I’m a big boy and this is the standard fare I get day in and day out both here and at 4chan. It’s all the same really. The only thing that bothers me is the hypocrisy. The hypocrisy of advocating of equal treatment…While at the same time crying about that treatment that you dole out to others. No matter the slight, is it really fair for you to call this treatment that you receive unfair while at the same time giving that treatment to others?
It’s my belief that if you call a treatment unfair, than it is unfair. Not to you, not to anybody. If it’s not ok to be done to you, it’s not ok to do. You can’t rationalize it away. Unfair is unfair. Wrong is wrong. You can’t simply handwave away someone else’s feelings because you dislike or even hate them. What they did is irrelevant to my morals and how I uphold them. If they do wrong that does not permit me to violate my ethical and moral standards. If I do wrong, it doesn’t matter what they did or not. Then I have done wrong. Two wrongs do not make a right; this is a logical axiom as well.
But those are my morals. And, I don’t know if they are yours. So I can’t force my morals on you. I can only furrow my brow as a monster and express my distaste at your opinion and await the inevitable garbage that you pelt at me. I won’t strike back. I won’t call a horde or a mob of friends and followers; I have neither. Restating: A world in which monsters believe in monsters creates a world of monsters. I do not believe in them.
Wanna make a monster? Take the parts of yourself that make you uncomfortable—your weaknesses, bad thoughts, vanities, and hungers—and pretend they’re across the room. It’s too ugly to be human. It’s too ugly to be you. Children are afraid of the dark because they have nothing real to work with. Adults are afraid of themselves. -Richard Siken, Black Telephone
As it turns out though…
I was the monster at the end of the book all along.
oh my fucking god did you really just try to derail my post about society’s unfair standards of female beauty to be about people being mean to you about your fedora
and spend about twelve thousand paragraphs doing so
holy fucking shit
“I keep rearranging the letters of my sisters The Beatles sign on her bedroom door.
