Always read the books. This is why they are so much better than the films.

[pre-gifs] “…So, she [Paris Hilton] was a very wealthy woman, [initially] not that well known and then she gets to mega-stardom. How? The sex tape. Which was made by her boyfriend at the time, who was married, and thirteen years her senior. She sued to try and stop it [the tape’s circulation] and she couldn’t and it became the best selling sex tape for two years on the porn market.”

Dr. Gail Dines addressing porn culture and rape culture’s intersecting roles in patriarchy

I really want to emphasize how important tumblr has been in helping me tear out the “girl hate” that had completely infiltrated my worldview because I’d internalized misogyny. It’s so fucking easy to be dismissive of women, particularly when they’re famous and we therefore don’t know anything about who they are as people. This lets us react to them like they *aren’t* people. It’s a serious problem, and I still catch myself doing it.. wanting to sneer at an actress or view the girl who argued with me in class as competition rather than another human being who may have very valid, but unseen, reasons for her argument.

Steven Moffat Doesn’t Understand Grief, and It’s Killing Doctor Who

There’s a popular joke I’ve seen floating around on Tumblr for a while now. It goes like this:
“Joss Whedon, Steven Moffat and George R.R. Martin walk into a bar and everyone you’ve ever loved dies.”
Here’s the problem, though:

SOMEBODY FINALLY FUCKING SAID IT THANK YOU

"But more importantly than that, when you have no death, when nothing truly has weight or scale, when decisions don’t stick and nobody feels the consequences… it’s hard to care about anything. The stakes on the show feel so low at this point that a once addictive program is unengaging, dull and hollow."

A very smart writer of Pacific Rim once said “there are no heroes in a world where heroes can’t die”. And that’s what Doctor Who has lost for me.

Amazing article.  Also, spot on.
