I'm an art history major. I love the humanities--art, music, literature, and history. I play the piano and I was a band nerd in high school. I occasionally enjoy photography, though I would never identify myself as a photographer. I looove vintage clothing and antiques. My favorite bands include Marilyn Manson, Nightwish, and Emilie Autumn. I post and reblog what I like, and I occasionally just post about my life. That is all. DOB: 1991 Location: Missouri
|Anonymous said: 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.

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
can you just imagine someone like darcy being assigned to fill bucky in on history after they find him and she’s just like “alright 40s man i already know another 40s man so fasten your seatbelt you’re about to get a crash course breakdown of the last 70 years of history. darcy style.”
when you need to cough in an exam but you’ve already coughed like twice so you just sit there suffocating
Is there a no coughing rule? I’m so confused
Not really, but if you do it more than once, normally people side-eye you or get irritated.
It’s like one of those “unspoken rule” things, I guess.
Yeah, people side-eye real hard, like you’re purposefully trying to make them fail.
I was once sick while taking a test in high school, so I was coughing a lot. Couldn’t be helped, I tried to keep it in and failed. Tough luck. And some fucking kid in my class whispered something along the lines of “Are you kidding me?”
Um. Okay. Because I’m totally doing this to annoy you specifically, and it’s obviously such a huge distraction to YOUR concentration, when I’m the one that actually has to stop and cough and shit.
