Dustin Hoffman on playing a woman in Tootsie (1982)

“If I was going to be a woman, I would want to be as beautiful as possible. And they said to me, ‘Uh, that’s as beautiful as we can get you.’ And I went home and started crying to my wife, and I said, ‘I have to make this picture.’ And she said, ‘Why?’ And I said, ‘Because I think I’m an interesting woman when I look at myself on screen, and I know that if I met myself at a party, I would never talk to that character because she doesn’t fulfill, physically, the demands that we’re brought up to think that women have to have in order for us to ask them out.’ She says, ‘What are you saying?’ and I said, ‘There’s too many interesting women I have not had the experience to know in this life because I have been brainwashed.’ It was not what it felt like to be a woman. It was what it felt like to be someone that people didn’t respect, for the wrong reasons. I know it’s a comedy. But comedy’s a serious business.”

This is a man in tears when he came up against the experience of being a woman in a misogynist society, and realizing what it means for them, and for him, too.

The Orphan Black Cast on Tatiana Maslany
↳ Tatiana’s dedication, strength, spunk, friendliness and professionalism have infused the entire crew with a love for the show and a standard of working. She knows everyone’s names, says hello to everyone regardless of where they are on the so-called totem pole, is always kind regardless of how exhausted she is…and has garnered so much respect from everyone. It’s really special, and she is really special. – Kathryn Alexandre


If you claim to be a feminist and you shame girls for wanting to do traditional things like take their husband’s last name or be a house wife then you are doing it all completely wrong.

Feminism isn’t an elite group who defeats gender norms, it’s a group who accepts ALL women’s choices.

So I was in the car this morning and we stopped at the traffic lights beside this thing


My mum said “oh look, there’s a bright orange portaloo on the back of that thing.”

Something caught my eye as I looked at it so I squinted and took a closer look




I really miss watching Buffy/Angel


I miss getting my heart broken into 2948308903253 million pieces by Joss over and over. 

I miss the characters.

I miss the romance.

I miss being terrified all the time that Whedon will do terrible terrible things to the characters I’d grown to love. 

I miss the anticipation of the next episode (I just watched it on Netflix, so that really only entailed clicking ‘Next Episode’ and deciding to forgo doing anything productive with my life for a few months). 

I know I can watch it again, but it’s not the same.



I bought my friend an elephant for their room.

They said “Thank you.”

I said “Don’t mention it.”

Are you going to age with grace? Are you going to age without mistakes? Are you going to age with grace? Or only to wake and hide your face. Well… oh, oblivion. Is calling out your name. You always take it further, than I ever can. Sophie Turner in Bastille’s ‘Oblivion’ (2014)

We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.
