“A woman from the audience asks: ‘Why were there so few women among the Beat writers?’ and [Gregory] Corso, suddenly utterly serious, leans forward and says: “There were women, they were there, I knew them, their families put them in institutions, they were given electric shock. In the ’50s if you were male you could be a rebel, but if you were female your families had you locked up.”

I’m just frozen. Absences of women in history don’t “just happen,” they are made.

We talked about this in my American literature course for about two seconds. When I asked the professor why there were no female poets on our syllabus from that era he just said “there was nothing really of note”.

DESTROY THE MYTH THAT TEENAGE GIRLS WHO IDENTIFY AS BISEXUAL ARE DOING IT FOR ATTENTION

Oh, but so many of them are…

That’s not the point. The point is that it’s become unsafe and uncomfortable for teenage girls to be themselves…

You have no idea how much this cheered me up just now.

I for one, think this is a major improvement. Look how empowered he is! And it’s relevant to the character as someone who is powered by the sun, he’d want to maximize the amount of sunlight he receives, right? It’s not like it makes sense for him to cover himself from chin to toe.
In fact, I think some strappy sandals might be an improvement.

strappy high heeled sandals would increase his height making him closer to the sun. and if wonderwoman can fight in heels it can’t be that hard, right?

can she just get an award or something

I reblog this whenever it pops up on my dash.

So many directions she could have gone with this joke…out of infinite possibilities…she picked the best possible direction.

Still one of the best gifts the internet has ever given me.

Like, when I am having a bad day, I can just think about her dancing to epic sax, giving no fucks in her watermelon bra, and life just seems BETTER. Also she has the best smile.
