Patrick Rothfuss, amazing writter, is the bearded one.

SciFi and Fantasy authors rebelling against sexism is my favorite thing.

What?! The Wise Man’s fear (by Rothfuss) is a great big ‘virgin is an expert at sex with a “child-like naked sex goddess” ‘ fantasy that lasts entirely too many damn pages. No, just no.
That’s right, Kvothe was so amazing at doing sex that the ancient sex goddess of sex and death was actually unable to believe that he was a virgin because he was so amazing at doing sex.
Once again, I say this. The next time you hear anybody complain about the fact that – in certain popular novels targeted at young women – hundred year old vampires fall for sixteen year old schoolgirls, point out to them that in one of the most critically acclaimed fantasy novels of the twenty-first century a faery creature of unbridled sexual potency, as ancient as time itself, who lures men to their deaths with her irresistible beauty and insatiable lovemaking has her mind blown by the sexual prowess of a sixteen year old virgin.

What if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen. Anne Lamott (via makethemdream)

The backlog of rape kits has put justice on hold for a lot of people. Back in 2009, more than 11,000 untested kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage facility. Some were more than 25 years old.

Mariska Hargitay speaks on some of the issues surrounding the rape kit backlog in Detroit, Michigan. #endthebacklog (x)

Anxiety Amnesia

But it’s this past spring and summer that remains a sticky black hole of sickness. It is not an unfamiliar feeling, losing months here and there to the churn of my brain, but it’s one that has never quite lost its shame.

Forever thankful for Allie. These panels in particular helped me to realize that my incapability to do “things” wasn’t simply laziness I needed to overcome. I’ve known that it is a fundamental misunderstanding that depressives don’t do things because they don’t want to— no, they would like to, but find themselves unable. It took Allie, however, to teach me that I was perpetuating that misunderstanding in my own mind about myself.
