In general, I think we need to move away from the premise that being a good person is a fixed immutable characteristic and shift towards seeing being good as a practice. And it is a practice that we carry out by engaging with our imperfections. We need to shift towards thinking that being a good person is like being a clean person. Being a clean person is something you maintain and work on every day.We don’t assume ‘I am a clean person therefore I don’t need to brush my teeth.’ When someone suggests to us that we have something stuck in our teeth we don’t say to them ‘What do you mean I have something stuck in my teeth—but I’m a clean person?!’

Dude nailed it. We all need to work at being good. Even if we think we are.

…the older I get, the more I see how women are described as having gone mad, when what they’ve actually become is knowledgeable and powerful and fucking furious.

"In oranges and women, courage is often mistaken for insanity,"- Iron-Jawed Angels


It’s funny how women being utterly fucking done with the boot of patriarchy on our necks, or of being done with the boot of white-supremacist, class-privileged, cishet, ableist feminism on our necks, is often described as insanity.

It’s not, it’s just that we’ve lost the capacity for being NICE in the face of egregious fuckery.


Learn the difference, you wazzocks.

GET TO KNOW DC COMICS QUEEN: Lois Lane
↳ “[Lois Lane] just has this absolute loyalty for what is good and right and just, and it parallels what Superman is and what he embodies.”

Perfection.

Perfectly imperfect.

a genderqueer superhero who wears a binder and hides their face so everyone assumes they’re male but then they have c cups and never bind as a civilian so their secret identity is safe

Actually theres an Argentinian comic/tv show called Cybersix thats pretty much exactly this, except the other way around:

No but can you just imagine Mrs Weasley getting to the magical afterlife one day and the first thing she sees is a girl with red hair sprinting towards her.

For a fleeting moment she thinks it’s Ginny, but as the girl comes closer she recognises the kind smile and the emerald eyes that are shining with tears. It’s Lily Potter.

Lily pulls Mrs Weasley into a tight hug and can only whisper three words before dissolving into tears.

"Thank you, Molly."
