Is it just me or you don’t really realise how drunk you are until you are in a bathroom alone???
So, why do you write these strong female characters?
Because you’re still asking me that question.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is an incredibly clever, complex and extraordinary show, contributing to the birth of female empowerment portrayed in television and constructing positive role models for young women in particular. The show was born in a still very traditional patriarchal society, and has since created characters such as Buffy and her fellow friends and allies for female audiences to idolise and adore - “these stories give people strength”. Along with the establishment of the first long-term lesbian relationship to be seen on network television, Joss Whedon and Buffy have taken an enormous step towards equality, a necessity enabling survival in the modern day world.
This is a fucking hilarious video of “Innuendo Bingo” on the BBC with the actor who played Neville Longbottom. As far as I can tell it’s a program where they make the participants fill their mouths with water and then listen to hilarious innuendo-filled clips. I kinda want to have a home-viewing party where we play along. I haven’t laughed so hard in ages.
This is important. Please watch.
Oh No! acoustic ver.
I’m in love with all the acoustic versions, but this has got to be my favorite.
JMU sociology class asks female and male students around campus “What do you do to to protect yourself from sexual violence?” The difference is pretty striking - not surprising, but interesting still.
I think this deserves more than 4 notes.
