"Unfortunately, not paying attention to race and gender does not make gender-race inequalities go away, precisely because these inequalities are institutionalized and not just ideas in people’s heads."
- Evelyn Nakano Glenn, Chapter 1: The Social Construction and Institutionalization of Gender and Race in Revisioning Gender (via aswekissgoodbye)

i don’t go to family reunions because they always ask me rude questions they’re like my 4th cousin half removed only by marriage and they ask me “why don’t you ever have a boyfriend” and i’m like i don’t fucking know why don’t you have any of your teeth

"First Sight means you can see what really is there, and Second Thoughts mean thinking about what you are thinking. And in Tiffany’s case, there were sometimes Third Thoughts and Fourth Thoughts although these sometimes led her to walk into doors."
- Terry Pratchett, I Shall Wear Midnight (via keeveet)

quotes you know what i have a friend who reminds me so much of tiffany it's fantastic the sad thing is she's never read a terry pratchett novel the biggest difference between her and tiff is that she doesn't read half as much discworld

In The Flesh fan map
bbcthree and bbcamerica - we asked our fellow In The Flesh fans where they were. This is a map of all the places they’ve told us so far. 
For a really offbeat zombie show set in an insular corner of Britain (not a red double decker bus or a shot of Big Ben in sight), In The Flesh has massive global appeal.
It is loved by people from all over the world, and it’s an amazing advert for the BBC and talented British writers, actors and directors.
It is picking up more and more fans every single day, almost entirely from word of mouth, but on top of this it deserves the support the BBC gives its other international successes.
A third series would be a lovely start! Please #SaveInTheFlesh

Comments of the party after fighting themselves in the Gauntlet

Morrigan: Hmph. No doubt this had something to do with "facing the dark side of your soul" or some such rubbish.

Leliana: Did you see the cruelty on my... on her face? Is that really what I am?

Sten: This proves nothing. I have nothing to fear from shadows.

Oghren: *laughs* I can't believe I kicked my own ass!

Wynne: Well, I wasn't expecting that, and I certainly don't want to go through it again.

Alistair: That was... weird...

And then there is this guy, named Zevran: Maker's breath, I'm beautiful. Did you see that? Did you see me? Magnificent.
