[on diversity in media] I think its social responsibility. I think it’s our responsibility to stand up and say what we want. It think if you look at television in the past two years, it’s becoming the decade of the female. Like, all these new shows with female leads. Even if you look at television, as well as cable, as well as films, there’s been a resurgence, as far as the leading woman in Hollywood, which is great. And I think we’re also at the point now…you know, it’s interesting…x
When you come out as trans, people sometimes take a while to adjust to your new pronouns, or don’t quite understand.
So we launched a new campaign to help! An article that introduces the topic, a video with a rundown from trans young people, and a web app where you can learn and practice pronouns!
Here’s our easy way to help your friends and family get your pronouns right and understand why it’s important.
okay zev with his hair in a bun is great but listen to this
- zev in a crop top
I had no choice
disabled characters are precious and not here to be reduced to your inspiration porn tropes
Tyrion Lannister is disabled and that does not make him absolved of morally questionable things he does ; nor admitting that he does bad shit is denying that he lives in a society that is deeply ableist and that he has been abused because of that. We should not erase his disability but we should not use it to excuse things he does
Bran Stark is disabled and suffered a good deal but that does not mean warging into Hodor is okay, even if he wants to walk again, Hodor deserves respect too
Hodor is a man and being non verbal does not mean he does not understand what is going on around him, he is human and deserves to be treated as such, he is not an angel either, not “a child in a man’s body”, he is a man. Don’t pretend for one second that abusing Hodor is ok because he is non verbal it happens to disabled people everyday in this world because people assume they don’t feel things. Newsflash we do.
Elia was a human being and there is more to remember about her than her fate and stop throwing her under the bus because she is a disabled WoC
Jaime’s loss of his hand is not a redemption arc being disabled is not a punishment to make you learn ~the good path of life~ jeez
please treat disabled characters as any other character, don’t hold them to lower moral standards bc they are disabled it is particularly disgusting, don’t make them pity parties because it is very condescendant

Imagine how useful mabari service dogs would be.
A mabari who can open doors with their mouth for their masters.
A mabari who can be hooked up to a cart and cart parapalegics around.
A mabari who gets sent with money in their collar and a shopping list to pick up groceries for their owner with agoraphobia.
A mabari seeing eye dog who can not only tell when it’s safe to pass on a street, but can also tell when your ex boyfriend is coming your way and makes sure to take you in the opposite direction to avoid him.
