Angelina Jolie’s speech at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict
There is nothing inevitable about it
cutebunnynoses said: Hey do you think you could find a word for "political lesbian" that doesn't disrespect actual lesbians? I completely understand your choices however I think the phrase "political lesbian" is appropriative and disrespectful.
1) you don’t get to dictate my identity at all, thanks. My sexual and romantic orientation is absolutely none of your business and I’m not going to justify myself to you.
2) political lesbianism has a very long history and has always used this terminology, it’s not gonna change just cos u dont like it
3) Political lesbians ARE “actual lesbians” as you so grossly put it; political lesbians can be bisexual, pansexual, gay women and sometimes even straight. Identifying as a political lesbian as a life choice doesn’t exclude you from being a lesbian in pure orientation/attraction anyway
4) looking at your ‘about’ i could very well attack your decision to identify as a lesbian but im not going to do that cos im not an asshole
lmao I can’t believe you’re getting lectured on this by an otherkin
eeeeeeeeeeeeeee from one bi political lesbian to another political lesbian: what a time to be alice
Thank you so much for explaining this because it’s taken me too long to find the words

Legitimately turned on by this
This is the best thing.
Oh my god
I don’t even know this fandom and this is cool.
Reason #999 why the cartoon will always be ONE MILLION PERCENT better than that travesty of a movie. They did so much research and put so much detail in you don’t even notice.
Bonus trivia: Toph got a unique martial arts style to match her distinct version of Earthbending (Southern Praying Mantis style, I think) which the creators found out later was (according to legend) invented by a blind woman. Totally a coincidence, but still so *** cool.
(If you don’t watch the show, Toph is both blind from birth and the best *** Earthbender in the world. Also, GO WATCH THE SHOW.)
THIS SHOW WAS AMAZING. I DID NOT WATCH IT FOR A LONG TIME BUT WHEN I DID I WAS COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY. ART. IT WAS ART.
“One male poet approached me after a performance and said, “I don’t mean to be rude, but do you ever write about anything other than the struggles of women?” I replied, “I don’t mean to be rude, but take your finger off the trigger and I’ll stop.” After all, who among us ever wanted to speak about these things? What little girl dreams of growing up to write ‘rape poems?’ About violence? About the muffled voices of women worldwide?” -Andrea Gibson
