It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…
That is a sort of stunning degree of difference.
"The data’s in! Women were lying about online harassment!”
"Aha! We knew it!"
“Yeah, they’ve been severely underreporting how bad things are for them, turns out.”

Gotta love new features! (part 1)
In a surprise online release Monday evening, Aretha Franklin and her classic pipes wowed everyone just hours before she was set to appear on the Late Show with David Letterman. The “Respect” and “Never Loved a Man” singer could probably belt the phone book and make it a hit if she wanted to — but instead, she opted to cover what’s become an instant classic in itself: Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.”
This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.
Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.
I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene
AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about
'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness'
when a man violates a woman, he cuts off her wings.
Man, OUAT. Let’s just put it out there: trying to force parallels between Emma and Elsa is dumb.
But you know who Emma has more parallels with than Elsa? ANNA.
Here you’ve got a girl who constantly feels worthless or overlooked, but keeps fighting and moving ahead. A girl who doesn’t feel like she belongs to royalty but still takes charge and is brave and kind and strong (and headstrong and blunt).
Here’s someone who’s been alone most of her life — something she’s never had a choice about, who’s been yearning for family and love despite being shut out repeatedly.
You know what? Fuck Elsa and Emma bonding, I want Regina and Anna to become besties. That’d make me watch.
