Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.
Cicero, 106 BC - 43 BC (via lazyyogi)
Yah, not much has changed…
Last night my little sister (5th grade) was making an e-mail account
She saw gender and went to click female when she noticed the “other” choice
She looked at me confused and I started to explain that some people don’t think they fit in with strictly male or female
"Oh! You mean like transgender and stuff like that. I was freaked out for a second- I thought they meant robots."
Yet another example the kids are more open-minded than adults
Huh. Mark me as unsurprised that lots of the objections to the announcement that Thor has a new book title and is a woman this time (whoever wields the power of Thor) seem to be that it is a stupid idea and why ruin him. Right…so for a while, Thor was a frog, but a woman isn’t okay?! Is it really so terrifying to have a woman in that role? Sad, insecure little boys posting all over today, I guess. They have literally hundreds of male superheroes from which to choose, seriously. And no one objected to Kate Bishop taking on the mantle of Hawkeye - which is pretty much the same thing here…the original still exists but she has the skills.
