repeat after me everyone: respecting the basic human dignity of oppressed people is more important than having a philosophical discussion about how anger is supposedly the same thing as hatred and how much better the world would be if we were all just nice to each other!!!!!!
because “don’t fight hate with hate” only means so much when you shout it in the faces of the oppressed, but barely whisper it in the direction of the oppressors
[Granny Weatherwax] was never quite certain about children, thinking of them – when she thought about them at all – as coming somewhere between animals and people. She understood babies. You put milk in one end and kept the other end as clean as possible. Adults were even easier, because they did the feeding and cleaning themselves. But in between was a world of experience that she had never really enquired about. As far as she was aware, you just tried to stop them catching anything fatal and hoped that it would all turn out all right. — Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett (via sockich)

A haiku from the article: ‘Visible City,’ by Tova Mirvis
romeo thought juliet deleted her blog so he deleted his and she was so sad she deleted for real
#You see Juliets parents found her blog and were really pissed so she had to pretend to delete to appease them#but a friend showed her how to do a fake not found page and she just changed her url for a while#she tried to tell Romeo but tumblr ate the ask#Next time I will explain how Iago fooled Othello with photoshopped screencaps from Roderigo’s twitter
give yourself over to the wolf. let it eat the parts of you that are sick, that are damaged beyond salvage. let the wolf in and let it clean house, and let it leave again. the wolf knows which parts must be swallowed. you do not need what it takes, and where it bites you the wounds will heal. let the wolf in and let it eat you, and let it leave again.
Mind you, the Elizabethans had so many words for the female genitals that it is quite hard to speak a sentence of modern English without inadvertently mentioning at least three of them. — Terry Pratchett (via twin-city-ankh-and-morpork)
Anyway, here’s Wonderwall.
