I will return in December… But in the meantime I will be very little here, for reasons of: I don’t have time to watch TV series and I hate spoilers, I wanna do NaNoWriMo, I’m travelling the US, I don’t have a TV, etc…
I will miss you guys and your wonderful choices of words and pictures… But I will return, stronger than ever, completely late for all the excitement, and I won’t even care!
The Equality Illusion (via lesilencieux)
BUT SEXISM ISN’T REAL Y’ALL WE’RE JUST MAKING IT UP. THIS ISN’T LITERAL OBJECTIFICATION. NAH. (via longdivisionnnn)
Princeton University psychologist Susan Fiske took brain scans of heterosexual men while they looked at sexualised images of women wearing bikinis. She found that the part of their brains that became activated was pre-motor - areas that usually light up when people anticipate using tools. The men were reacting to the images as if the women were objects they were going to act on. Particularly shocking was the discovery that the participants who scored highest on tests of hostile sexism were those most likely to deactivate the part of the brain that considers other people’s intentions (the medial prefrontal cortex) while looking at the pictures. These men were responding to images of the women as if they were non-human.

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
BUT THE ACTING HERE. BECAUSE HE’S DIGORY. AND HE BUILT THAT WARDROBE. WITH THE WOOD FROM THE TREE HE PLANTED. AND SO HE KNOWS IT’S NARNIA. HE’S WAITED HIS WHOLE LIFE, AND HE’S PROBABLY GIVEN UP AND SHOVED THAT HOPE AWAY IN THE BACK OF HIS MIND AND SUDDENLY THESE FOUR CHILDREN SHOW UP AND THEY FIND IT.
Fun fact: CS Lewis based the professor on JRR Tolkien. Tolkien in turn based Treebeard on CS Lewis.
that is a very fun fact yes
C.S. Lewis, Tolkien, and Frank Hubert (Dune) used to hang out. They were all really good friends.
What? Frank Herbert* too?!
