grantaire narrates all of his painting like bob ross

even when he is alone

he’s like the sad version of bob ross. “now see here, we’re going to use this wider brush to make a little tree. a sad little tree. all trees are sad because humans keep destroying them and they can’t run away. look, it’s bending over like that because it’s filled with the fatalistic knowledge that the planet earth is doomed. now we’ll add some sad little clouds.”

Greek mythology meme: [1/4] pairings
↳ Pyramus & Thisbe

Pyramus and Thisbe are two ill-fated lovers whose story first appears in Ovid’s Metamorphoses and has been referenced or reproduced many times. 
Pyramus and Thisbe were young lovers from two rivalling families. Since they lived in houses with a shared side, they could whisper to each other through a crack in the wall. They agreed to meet under a mulberry tree to see each other face to face. Thisbe arrives first but finds a lioness there and so she flees, leaving her veil behind. When Pyramus gets there, he sees Thisbe’s torn veil and the lioness with her bloody mouth and so he assumes his lover has been killed. Desperate in his grief, he commits suicide by throwing himself upon his sword, and his blood stains the mulberry fruits red. Soon after, Thisbe returns, and finds her lover’s corpse. After a brief lament, she stabs herself with the same sword and her spraying blood colours the fruits an even darker red. To honour the young lovers’ dedication to each other, the gods allow the mulberry fruits to remain red as a reminder of Pyramus and Thisbe’s love.

So there’s a thing going on in the radfem community where people say that bisexual women are privileged when we date men, and as a consequence they seem to feel okay with shaming us just for existing. Which … can I just point out the logical flaws? Radical feminist theory can’t really support that argument because:

'Privilege' is determined by what you inherently are and how society sees you, not by your actions. So if we all agree that people who happen to be born male are male-privileged no matter how they act, dress, or identify - and that people born female are oppressed on a biological basis no matter how they act, dress, or identify - then we have to agree that people who are bisexual are oppressed on the axis of sexuality no matter who they date. Capice?

(That said, I’m not entirely convinced that sexuality is an axis of oppression separate from sex/gender. If heteronormativity is a product of the gender binary, then engaging in a homosexual relationship is a form of gender nonconformity, and it seems to me like that’s what we’re being punished for - get rid of gender, and you also get rid of heteronormativity and homophobia.)

But look, here’s the point. Bisexual women are statistically much more likely to be raped, assaulted, or abused than either straight women or lesbians. We can go on analyzing the causes of that all day: We can say that part of it is due to homophobia (straight men attack bisexual women because straight men hate people who have been or have the potential to be in homosexual relationships) and part is situational (bisexual women are often in relationships with men, and lesbians are not, and since much rape and abuse are partner rape and abuse, bisexual women are more likely to be attacked). The point is that if we agree that the abuse of bisexual women is a problem - and if you don’t agree, then you either hate bi women or aren’t willing to believe us - then we need to start prioritizing bi women and finding a way to stop men from hurting bi women. Not arguing about who’s more oppressed.

So believe us, please, and stop whining.

"Where “Shake it Off” is generic, “Out of the Woods” is particular to Swift, the kind of song that only she would write. It’s reassuring, exciting stuff, whether or not this particular song is even to your liking. If you care about how all pop music sounds exactly the same because the same five people are churning out hits for everybody on the Billboard Top 100, then you should care about someone like Swift — a serious songwriter with a distinct voice — crafting her own songs. If she’s singing somebody’s else’s words, it means she isn’t gutting you with lines like “you call me up again just to break me like a promise / so casually cruel in the name of being honest,” or telling a whole life in four words with “careless man’s careful daughter.” I don’t want to turn on the radio and hear female artists belting out girl power jams written by a bunch of dudes. I want more Lorde, more Charli XCX, more Nicki Minaj, more Kacey Musgraves. I want Swift to keep sounding like Swift, coy references to unnamed celebrity exes and all."

"And now Klaus is apparently running off to go and save Sunny. In the books of course it is Violet, but I know that Hollywood prefers its female actresses to do very little."

I do think that the public health obsession with “why are lesbians fat?”  along with the feminist obsession with not being hairy legged man-hating butch dykes along with a general left-wing disapproval of gay women,  gender non-conforming women and fat/ugly women of any sexuality are all connected to our culture being deeply suspicious of women who appear to possibly love themselves too much.
