    To fight monsters, we created monsters of our own.
    — 

    Pacific Rim, 2013


    One of the greatest things about this quote (and this movie) is that it had all the potential in the world to spread the dark and terrible (and often truthful) idea that in order to fight the darkness, one must absorb some of that darkness. It was very prominent in The Dark Knight trilogy, especially as articulated by Harvey Dent: “You die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.” 

    Pacific Rim doesn’t do this. Mankind bands together for a true world war. There are already enough monsters coming for them; they do not need to become monstrous themselves. The monsters they create are not beasts but guards and armor to protect, not universally destroy. The jaegers rarely deliberately destroy massive structures (remember Gipsy Danger carefully stepping over a large walkway and nimbly navigating between buildings during the fight in Hong Kong). The pilots in the jaegers are very human and imperfect but are still heroes. They may have created monsters, but they did not become them.

    Everyone and their mother has lauded this, but it bears repeating: in Pacific Rim, mankind’s power is not in its capacity for destruction or power or control or harnessing its deepest instincts but instead in its humanity—its ability to rebuild, to persevere, to empathize and to understand.

    And that is why I’m getting this quote as a tattoo.

    'Sex' doesn't sell. Erosion of female self esteem does. The feeling of superiority over women does. Turning women into 'things' to be studied, scrutinized & judged and then calling it 'sex' does.

    Sex doesn’t sell. Objectification does

    Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism.

    Mary Pipher, Reviving Ophelia (via erkings)

    Fun fact: Canada launched the “Don’t Be That Guy” rape prevention campaign targeted at potential rapists rather than potential victims was launched… and the number of reported sexual assaults fell by 10 per cent. within that year.  Rape prevention NEEDS to start with education and focus on the perpetrators, not just policing the behavior of potential victims.

Only local cars are allowed to drive into the Brisbane River

To be fair, it’s only payback for the time when the river drove into Brisbane traffic.

    Better Identification of Viking Corpses Reveals: Half of the Warriors Were Female | Tor.com

    juliedillon:

    bisexualpiratequeen:

    "Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

    Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.

    a practical guide to becoming a true pun master

    animeteen:

    1. accept that no pun is actually Good, but that the true nature of a good pun is to be so terrible that it becomes good.
    2. say every pun that occurs to you. i’m so serious about this, sometimes the most well received puns will be ones you considered not saying.
    3. ALWAYS laugh at your own puns, even if nobody else is. (especially if nobody else is.)
    4. know that you are hilarious. puns are a limitless resource and you have taken it as your duty to bring this gift to humanity. you are a hero.
