coming out to your parents
If you try for one second to tell me the X-Men isn’t an allegory for the gay rights movement, I will smack you. They weren’t even remotely subtle about this.
The mutants have always been an allegory for anyone that didn’t fit in to society. The folks who drew the comics made a point of that early on.
It’s not just the gay rights movement, its not just kids trying to “come out” to their parents. Its people being mistreated by the government, put away, forced to pretend to be “normal”, systematically oppressed, even killed for who they are because the powers that be cant control it. It’s an allegory for blacks, gays, the disabled (mentally and physically), women, and anyone really who isnt a white man at the top of the food chain.
This is why there are THREE groups in the x-men comics, the passing x-men who want integration, the activist and militant brotherhood who accepts everyone but them (the mutates, ie mutants who were made not born) and the Morlocks who accept everyone but just want left alone to survive.
Professor X gathers together those who look human and can save people to present a perfect image of what mutants can be - looking like a 1950’s kids’ book (whilst shooting lasers out of their eyes)
Magneto shelters those who might not be good people but can turn into giant gorillas for example, as long as you were born that way who cares what you look like or can do
and the morlocks - well they are literally the sewer mutants, the ones who didnt’ want to fight, or who couldn’t pass as human, or who just wanted to be left alone
it always broke my heart they left the Morlocks out of the movies, because the whole point was that neither the x-men or the brotherhood were ideal, and it included all of the mutants in the war, when there were those who for one reason or another just wanted to keep their heads down and survive…
and that was always, to me at least, the strongest part of the metaphor
Alan Rickman at the Giffoni Film Festival  [x]
Ten of my most reblogged pumpkin edits in 1 post. Happy Halloween!
It should be mandatory that if a Broadway show is closing they should have it professionally shot.
The producers have any idea how many people still would like to see that show (and just didn’t see because they didn’t had the opportunity), and would buy a dvd of it?
Or the people who saw the show and loved it and would like to have it forever with them?

She’s such an inspiration :-D
Love my First Lady…

From their announcement:
For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.
We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.
Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.

apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
this gives me hope.
mara wilson is also the faceless old woman who lives in your home, so you know she’s got your best interests at heart
The biggest issue with equating the library with a Netflix for books is that it sends a false message that libraries are worth little more than $8 or $12 or $20 a month. That the services offered in libraries are little more than options to which people can subscribe, rather than actual services anyone can utilize at any time.
When the library is made to be seen as a business, rather than the heart of a community or a fundamental service made possible through citizen-approved tax dollars, it makes the library expendable. That expendability then moves down the chain: staff salaries get cut, then staff withers, then more programs and projects that benefit the community — books and movies and CDs and magazines and newspapers and wifi and computer access and database subscriptions and programs for all shapes, colors, and sizes of people — disappear, too. It detracts from the unique aspects that make a library what it is: a place for all, rather than a place for some.
Libraries reach out where Netflix reaches in.
Petition to ban old men from writing books just because they don’t know how to use an iPhone
Petition to have the youth in this country to actually educate themselves instead of spitting out some bullshit they read on some shitty post on facebook that’s untrue, and continues to spread like wildfire.
In 2012, young adults set the record of completing both high school and college and are on course to become the most educated generation in American history. Maybe you should follow the example of ‘the youth in this country’ and do the same.
