"I like the slash, and I think I like it because I feel there are so many people who are under-represented - or not represented at all - in mainstream Hollywood entertainment. I really enjoy the fan fiction that embraces character and themes that showcase those people - their love, their desires, their passions.
"I think that’s really cool - and I hope the show as it continues embraces that more, because that’s an opportunity to tell stories that other people might not be familiar with. I mean, there’s slash of me and Ichabod… that’s like, ‘What?!’ and then I read it and it was really well-written.
"I get it - it’s another way to go but it’s no less valid than what we’re doing and it’s certainly interesting, so I really get a kick out of that. To read fan fiction and to see fan art and to watch other people’s artistry paint different colors on top of what we’re doing… how can you be mad at that? That’s just completely awesome!"
Uterus, I do not understand your need to have a baby. We cannot afford a baby. I do not want a baby. Hell you wouldn’t even be happy if we had a baby. I find these temper tantrums you throw every month we don’t have a baby absolutely unacceptable.
Pro tip: never try to convince a coworker who does stand up comedy that rape jokes aren’t funny (because they promote rape culture, 1 in 5 women have been assaulted, and it reaffirms the idea that all men rape in the minds of men who DO rape)
Because your coworker will follow you around for the rest of the day telling you every single rape joke he knows to see if this one is funny, while insisting you can’t censor yourself with comedy. You have to be brave and make jokes about EVERYTHING, regardless if “a few people are too sensitive.”
When I bluntly told him to stop telling me rape jokes, he started telling me domestic violence jokes.
