Butterfly's Wings


Chronically ill, autistic, bisexual, mostly white, feminist, opinionated, academic, lefty scum. Pronouns are she/her/hers.

This blog is a mixed bag of social justice, politics, cool science stuff, pretty pictures, fandoms (such as Star Trek, Supernatural, Teen Wolf, Welcome to Night Vale, Sailor Moon, Avengers, A:TLA/Legend of Korra, My Little Pony, Doctor Who (especially classic Who), Pacific Rim, Game of Thrones, Almost Human, Elementary, Greco-Roman classics), literary quotes, geeky jokes, and pretty much anything else that amuses/interests me or otherwise catches my fancy. Note: Reblogged opinions may not necessarily be ones I agree with. I also reblog ones that I disagree with but still find interesting or thought-provoking.

One day I'll actually go through and properly tag this mess.

so the other day i was at work, talking to one of my co-workers. we somehow got into the topic of tv shows, and he asked me if i had seen orange is the new black. of course, i say. i binged watched the second season in like five days.

i’m enjoying watching it, but it’s not really about anything, is it? he says.

it’s about inmates in a women’s prison, i say.

i mean — he laughs. i just watched ten episodes in a row. nothing happens.

i don’t know what he means. i tell him so. it’s about what happens to these women, i say.

it’s just — there’s no goal, no final end result, he says to me. it’s like a chick flick.

i ask him why he thinks it’s a chick flick. he doesn’t respond; we’re working, we have to go do something else, and i don’t see him for the rest of the night.

i know what he means, though. orange is the new black is a show about women; therefore, it isn’t really about anything. it’s a show about what happens to women; so nothing is really happening. it’s about women, so it’s irrelevant.

sometimes it’s easy to forget that sexism isn’t always loud and violent, but sometimes rather quiet, unassuming, dismissive.

They’re more than fiction. They were there for me even if they weren’t real. They were there when you weren’t. They’re more than you think they are.

I think I have reblogged this 3 times today

when McGonagall finds out that Ginny is pregnant, and that the Weasley and Potter bloodlines will converge, she marks on her calender the day the child will turn 11 and that is the day she retires 

Like I saw in an earlier post, that’s when McGonagall is McGonagone.
