“I think women who say, ‘No, I’m not a feminist — I love men,’ I think that is just… You don’t know what it means. You think it means that, ‘I don’t shave under my arms, I burn my bras. Fuck men!’ How could you be so uneducated, and so unwilling to learn about something which is so important to you?”

“Of all man’s instruments, the most wondrous, no doubt, is the book. The other instruments are extensions of his body. The microscope, the telescope, are extensions of his sight; the telephone is the extension of his voice; then we have the plow and the sword, extensions of the arm. But the book is something else altogether: the book is an extension of memory and imagination.”
— Jorge Luis Borges (via observando)

I haven’t laughed so hard in forever.

“Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.”

OKAY you don’t have to like beyonce but don’t you DARE say she is overrated. 

this woman has been working at it since she was A CHILD 

this woman is one of the most WEALTHY, POWERFUL, CREATIVE, TALENTED, VISIONARY, LEGENDARY, ICONIC, WORLD RENOWN, INDESTRUCTIBLE PERFORMERS IN THE PLANET 

don’t you dare say the success of a MOTHER, WIFE, PERFORMER, ARTIST, WOMAN OF COLOR is not well deserved just because you don’t like her.

Aang/Zaheer: Flight and The Thought Chakra

Someone said to me, “Even Aang couldn’t fly like that.” Then I recalled the moment he relinquished his connection to Katara, unlocked the Thought Chakra, and entered the Avatar State under the influence of pure cosmic energy. Aglow with heavenly light, he levitated. We see no evidence of Airbending; he merely floats skyward.

Is this the same flight we see Zaheer attain after having accepted the loss of P’Li, untethered himself from desire, unlocked the Thought Chakra, and entered the void?

As many have theorized, this technique seems to be attainable only when love is lost or otherwise forgone. Aang was prepared to sacrifice his happiness and love for unlimited cosmic power. Shouldn’t it stand that this flow of energy unlocks unaided flight? In the least, it would seem so in here.

Originally I thought this was just some mystic Avatar State nonsense, but if you look there is no Air enshrouding or otherwise lifting Aang into the air. He’s levitating.

This power must be contingent upon the dismissal of worldly desires and successful access to the Thought Chakra and its promise of cosmic energy.

Breaking news: White fuckboys on twitter bitching how funny it is that Beyoncé is a feminist when she and her dancers were provocative and half naked. Despite feminism being about empowerment and a woman’s right to do whatever the hell she pleases with it, they just don’t seem to be able to grasp this concept.

In other news, men still don’t know what feminism is, still bitter that they aren’t Beyoncé and still making themselves look like asses on the internet.

And now the weather.

I bet 5 minutes later they slid up in some DM’s asking for nudes

you know these assholes had NO PROBLEM with anything in her show until that word popped up

it’s not nudity they have a problem with

it’s a woman who is empowered and in control of how when and why she dresses and dances how she wants

when their precious male gaze is questioned or dismissed, suddenly she’s a terrible feminist, and they try and shame her for the very thing that was turning them on seconds before
