i love sir patrick stewart more with each passing day.
See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.
He knows men are like that
his father was like that to his mother
he has experienced the pain firsthand, of what it’s like when men are like that
and he never wants men to be like that again and he fights tooth and nail against the men who are still like that
And moreover, he acknowledges his privilege [as an older white male who is famous/well known] and uses it to speak up. He knows what he is, and he never has to say he’s not like those men he fights against—he never says it, his actions speak loud enough for everyone else to see it.
I’m sorry for not being around. I just haven’t been feeling tumblr for awhile.
Honestly, I’m really burnt out on it. It’s been four years since I’ve been on here, and to be blunt, I don’t like how it’s evolved in that time. It used to be a great place for feminism and talking about what was wrong with the world. Now, honestly, there’s a trace of that left, but I feel like it’s become a hotbed for extremists, or a huge echoing chamber. I used to have some killer discussions here, but now, it feels like there’s no room to agree or disagree—it’s this way, or leave. I’ve mostly relocated to reddit, tbh. While there are huge swatches of problematic things there, I’ve been occupying my time in trying to make a corner of it a safer place, and also getting more grey hair by trying to change a few minds. And it just feels like I’m getting something accomplished more than just yelling the same opinions over and over. Y’all know what I’m about.
I’m still going to be around, but I’m probably going to end up changing the shift of this blog if I ever return to full time blogging. On top of my feelings about the site, I’ve been trying to get into a doctorate program, have returned to full time graduate school, and have been discovering life outside the computer. I’ve had an honest to blog Internet addiction since I was 12—that is half of my life. It’s been wonderful breaking it. Plus after the aftermath of leaving an abusive relationship/dealing with the aftermath of that, it’s been honestly hard to maintain an online presence in the one place where The Asshole can still keep tabs on me.
If I know you in real life: I am never too busy for y’all. Please feel free to hit me up anywhere if you need me.
A chance meeting in 1983 had David Bowie, Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook chatting away over beers in the Kings Arms in Salford. “…So we were all there just having a laugh and we joked that he should come n have a jam with us, then next minute - well, it was the next day actually, but i didn’t expect he’d definitely come by - and we were in the practice rooms and we were playing Love Will Tear Us Apart and I was like, f%$k we’re playing Love Will Tear Us Apart with David Bowie singing, this is crazy. We never released it - Bowie took a recording of it, and just layered some more vocals on for fun, sent it back to me…”
I recently rewatched this episode (honestly, “In the Pale Moonlight” would be AWESOME in a political science classroom setting), and honestly, it reminded me of Oppenheimer quoting the Bhagavad Gita in regards to the bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In a strange way, it’s creepily parallel.
Capitalists: Capitalism is the best system because it works by the laws of nature. Darwin! Natural selection! Only the strong survive!
Kropotkin: Actually, Darwin pointed out that in numberless animal societies, the struggle between separate individuals for the means of existence disappears, that struggle is replaced by co-operation and how that substitution results in the development of intellectual and moral faculties which secure to the species the best conditions for survival.
When Aries and Pisces go for a romantic relation, they exactly make a complimenting pair of Fire and Water with Aries on the receiving end and Pisces on giving end. Aries love is immature and egoistic while that of Pisces is very mature which believes in complete submission of egos.
A Pisces man is a very adjusting man with submissive attitude and avoids conflicts and these are actually his strengths rather than weakness. He is a man who enjoys helping and serving others. He is very observant and examines each person and situation closely. He is a dreamer, which allows him to relate intimately to Aries woman he has chosen as his lady. He gives peace and security to his Aries woman and always avoids all possible arguments. But more often he is lost in his unrealistic dreams that can hinder his success.
In contrast to Pisces man, an Aries woman is very aggressive and impulsive but she has the qualities to keep a relationship blossoming. She is born to win and is never afraid of accepting challenges. She is sentimental, generous, kind and extremely loyal woman once she is seriously in any relation. When she is in a relationship with a Pisces man, he provides her with control and helps her to bring out her feminine side on occasion. She tries to keep her Pisces man extremely happy throughout their relationship as long as he allows her to have some control over him.
The Aries woman is one mate for Pisces man who has faith in his dreams. His qualities create an excitement within her and she respects them whole-heartedly. She has enough fire to spark his desires and lead him to great accomplishments, and give him the faith he needs to stand for dreams and wishes. She fiercely defends him against those who judge him inaccurately due to his dreamy nature. She is one person who brings excitement and vigor to the life of the Pisces male and teaches him to be a bit more practical. But the aggressive nature and cutting comments of the Aries female can hurt the sensitive feelings of the Pisces guy turning him cold towards her.
The Pisces man, who falls for an Aries woman, makes her more docile and convenient. He shields her against her enemies and is able to pacify her fears and give her the emotional security she needs. He often possesses the fiery command and gentle nature which makes a perfect blend to keep her satisfied and affectionate. He gives a form of enchantment and romance in their relationships, which allow these two to shine radiantly together and makes her feel more comfortable and secure with him. He must give himself into her without allowing her to walk all over him to maintain harmony as well as respect in their relationship. But his over dreaminess can lead him away from facts of life, making him a couch potato which sometimes irritates her extremely.
As the common fear of hurt and rejection in Pisces man and Aries woman dwindles with their strong faith and lovable attitude towards each other they make an amazing pair. It is very possible for these two to keep each other happy for a lifetime with their sentiments towards one another. They can walk miles quietly in silence admiring each other’s efforts or deeply cherishing their dreams and planning things to fulfill them. The Pisces man once completely in love with her, opens up and become very warm and promising towards her all needs and wishes while she leaves her aggressiveness long behind and becomes a calm lake with loads of love poured in her heart for her man. Their oneness creates the magic of angels that keeps them bonded throughout their lives.
A sexual relationship between the Aries woman and the Pisces man is a mutual attraction of explosive activity and cool stillness. They have an exceptional physical chemistry that outlasts periodic quarrels. Their approach to life differs, but their wants and needs in a relationship and physical intimacy is complimentary. She contributes passion to their love-making while he makes it more interesting and beautiful with his dreamy imaginations. They both desperately seek a sexual experience of great intensity and imagination while holding sentiment. The love they both experience through their sexual union is full of secret fantasies, allows them to escape into their own private wonderland together, allowing them to shut out the rest of the world. It can be tremendously enjoyable for him to be looking into the attractive and much more pleasant, pleasing eyes of her and go deep into the act. To her it can be something so appealing, so nice, to feel the touch of him at her private parts. But what adds more pleasure is when it goes unpredictable and unexpected. Their legs feel so weak, their heads feel fainted and their bodies feel so good, so intensely, fundamentally wonderful as their climaxes gush through their bodies.
The Pisces man though gives very unselfish and undemanding love to his Aries woman but her conflicting nature forces him to retreat from her. This attitude of him makes her feel helpless and self-doubting. Her aggressiveness and impulsive actions make him cold towards her enhancing her jealousy and insecurities. Though he is usually very sensitive towards her and heals all her wounds but his occasional lying and weak will, can upset her deeply. Similarly the determination of the Aries woman and her strong powers attract him a lot but her egoistic attitude makes him detached. The only way out for this couple is to seek for a better communication and stay long for the things to get settled. Hasty decisions can spoil the relationship once and for all.
