An unemployed grad student in the process of trying to write her MA thesis. Main hobbies: procrastination and failing at life. Oh and blaming Capitalism and The West for Everything and Anything.
Fair warning to fellow fandom folks: It is very likely that I consider your favorite (and probably fandom-beloved) character an overrated nuisance and your favorite (and probably fandom-preferred) ship a chemistryless waste of screentime. Not to mention, you far more vapid than the vapid writer(s) of whichever (probably dumb) show we have in common.
"When, as happened recently in France, an attempt is made to coerce women out of the burka rather than creating a situation in which a woman can choose what she wishes to do, it’s not about liberating her but about unclothing her. It becomes an act of humiliation and cultural imperialism. Coercing a woman out of her burka is as bad as coercing her into one. It’s not about the burka. It’s about the coercion. Viewing gender in this way, shorn of social, political, and economic context, makes it an issue of identity, a battle of props and costumes."
