mycatsneezeslikealot asked: if men and women should have equal rights then why are you against men wanting rights? feminism isn't about women being better then men is it?...

fuckyeahcourtneystodden:

im against men complaining about wanting ‘mens rights’ because it’s never about wanting anything other than to silence and talk over women.

if men’s rights activists worked to open crisis centers for male victims of abuse and survivors of sexual violence i would love that. if men’s rights activists worked toward support and parenting classes and education for single fathers that would be amazing. if men’s rights activists worked toward educating fellow men on practicing safe sex and consent i would be so on board. if men’s rights activists worked toward breaking down the chains of racism of their brothers of colour i would be so happy. if men’s rights activists advocated for anything of value i would be so down for it all.

instead men’s rights activists sit on the fucking internet talking over women and attempting to silence them and their oppression with arbitrary add-ons, bullshit about the friendzone, and useless fucking nonsense.

so no. i have zero use for men’s rights activists because it’s never about advocating for things men need and instead it’s always about making sure women shut up about what they need. they aren’t “men’s rights activists” they’re “anti women activists”. point blank.

finally feminism is not about women being better than men nor is it about being equal to men. feminism is about women being liberated from men. i have no desire to be considered “equal” to the system of power that allows men to abuse, murder, and rape us. i want liberation from patriarchy and men.

My favorite moment in worldbuilding: when the world stops being the sum of its influences and starts dictating its own rules and identity. I. LOVE. THAT.

These classical musicians play their instruments in a way you’ve never seen before.

A rather compelling visual experience, on top of being a flawless musical demonstration, performed by Salut Salon, a charming German quartet from Hamburg. 

i aspire to be these women

EXTREME QUARTET

magictheflavoring asked: I am currently at a dilemma in writing a fantasy story... I want dragons but feel that perhaps they are on kind of creature that is overused. Are they overused? Magic uses them a lot, and people generally like them. I was thinking of creating a new kind of creature in this fantasy world but perhaps dragons can be something to identify with... thoughts?

markrosewater:

Never underestimate the power of using things that people already identify with.

kallixti asked: "I love all types of pizza." Even banana pizza?

markrosewater:

I refuse to acknowledge such a thing exists.

One of the (many) reasons, I respect the heck out of Magic’s lead designer.

mtgraptor asked: Do you think its a good side or bad side of mana screw that its there to be the scapegoat for a loss ?

markrosewater:

The scapegoating the loss is a huge bonus of Magic's mana system. Never discount the power of preserving the ego.
