“Writers don’t write from experience, though many are resistant to admit that they don’t. I want to be clear about this. If you wrote from experience, you’d get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.”—Nikki Giovanni (via word-spinning)
one of my favourite things about Mindy is her refusal to do what people just EXPECT her to do because she’s a woman.
YES. I love that she doesn’t agree to go along with what other people want her to do, if it’s not what she wants. I’m really loving her as a main character — I think she’s probably my favorite. Although, I really like everyone in the main cast, even the new dudebro doctor guy (because his dudebro-iness is hilarious).
ugh casey. i love them together, but his actions later on (where are you) really bug me. mindy’s response is one thing that is so great about the show.
I just started season 2, I’m on the episode where Mindy is forced to go on a date with Morgan. At the end of that relationship, Casey’s choices were totally starting to annoy me. They’re both great, but nowhere near the same place.
Slytherin wasn’t the only founder to leave a concealed chamber at Hogwarts— before her death, Helga Huffelpuff created a secret room which would help all students, regardless of house affiliation or purity of blood. It’s been called many things throughout the centuries; today it’s known as the Room of Requirement.
Hi. My name is Zoe Quinn. Long story short, the Internet spent the last month hating me.
So, apparently, a whole bunch of angry internet users have been bombarding Cracked with demands that they write an article addressing GamerGate. They looked into it, saw what was going on, and promptly invited Zoe Quinn—the female game developer whose name has been slandered and dragged through the mud by these internet users in order to create this fake scandal—to write an article about it. They also called out the bullshit reasoning behind this “scandal” in the introduction. Beautiful.
