Ooh, you can dance? Or have danced? Or might seriously dance? Awesomeeee. <3 And yeah, I’m the cynical-about-humanity’s-future type that has seriously considered a lot of apocalypses. :)
I can dance! Somewhat. I know how to do basic swing, salsa, and ballroom dancing. I just haven’t for quite a while… I would very much like to seriously dance on a regular basis! I love it!
O__O Sometimes it’s hard not to be cynical about humanity’s future.
Oh man… what style WOULDN’T I learn? I love all forms of ballroom dance. I’d love to learn the Jive. Any new swing styles or steps would be exciting to learn. I’d also like to learn hip hop dancing. Once I start making some money (and have properly moved) I plan to try finding some hip hop dance classes.
O__O I am all about the zombie apocalypse are you kidding me?? But I guess in seriousness I expect it would be nuclear/technology crash. Obviously in this situation mass producing food would become more difficult. :) Everyone would only really become zombies because of doping up on terrible things *coughbathsaltscough* and we’d probably eat each other alive just because there are too many of us and we’d get too bored.
« That’s a terrible situation. Please don’t actually let that happen, but you never know… …
When you compliment a random woman who doesn’t know you, no matter how nice you are about it, there’s a good chance she’s going to freak out internally because for all she knows, you could be that latter type. And I get that it’s really unfair that women would just assume that about you. I get that it sucks that sometimes, expressing totally reasonable opinions like “hey you’re hot” will make women terrified of you or furious at you. That’s not fair.
But if you’re going to lay the blame for that somewhere, for fuck’s sake, don’t blame the woman. Blame all the guys who have called her a bitch and a cunt for ignoring their advances. Blame all the guys who may have harassed, abused, or assaulted her in the past. Blame all the people who may never do such a thing themselves, but who were quick to blame her and tell her to just get over it. Blame the fact that if she stops and talks to you and then something bad happens, people will blame her for stopping and talking to you.

No big deal, just shreddin’.
“You can really shred that Eddie Van Halen solo, little girl. But can you down 8 lagers at once?” Alex Van Halen
We [Fraction and his wife, Kelly Sue DeConnick] were pregnant at the time, and while I was out there I started to realize that if I had a daughter, there would come a day when I would have to apologize to her for my profession. I would have to apologize for the way it treats and speaks to women readers, and the way it treats its female characters.
I knew that if we had a daughter, because I know my wife and I know the kind of girl she wants to raise and I know the kind of girl I want to raise, she was going to look at what I did for a living and want to know how the fuck I could stomach it. How could I sell her out like that?” Fraction continued. “That conversation is still coming, and I’m bracing for it in the way that some dads brace for their daughter’s first date or boyfriend. I became acutely aware that I had sort of done that thing that lots of privileged hetero cisgendered white dudes do. ‘I’m cool with women, and that’s enough.’ It’s not enough. It’s embarrassing to say, because we somehow have attached shame to learning and evolving our opinions, culturally, but I became aware that there was a deficiency of and to women in my work, and all I could do at that moment was take care of my side of the street.

My tea told me to forgive myself. This feel poignant.
