"People don’t like her because it’s the making of her, right now. When she, sometime soon in the future, becomes this person that she’s been kind of building up to, for the past three seasons, now four, then people will really begin to root for her. I think even the audience doesn’t realize she’s such a dark horse. If she acted badass and tried to kill everyone there, she would be dead by now! She’s so intelligent, and I can’t stress that enough. Courtesy is a lady’s armor. She’s using her courtesy to deceive people, and she’s using her former self as a facade, and it works so much to her advantage, because people still think she’s this naive, vulnerable, little girl, and she’s really not. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what game she’s playing! And no one else does. And she’s learned from the best — Cersei, Margaery, Tyrion, Littlefinger, even Joffrey. She’s learned so much from these people, and they don’t even realize it. They’re unwittingly feeding her to become this great kind of manipulator. King’s Landing can either make or break a person, and in Sansa’s case, it’s making her."

Why Triggering Someone Is Not Therapeutic

shulamithbond:

Because apparently some concern trolls don’t get this: systematic desensitization and flooding are not what you’re doing when you, say, force someone with social anxiety into a social situation (for instance, a party). Here’s why:

"

Autism is the way our brains work. It is a disability, yes, but most issues are societal based. Meaning that that non autistic people could learn how to effectively communicate with us, learning how we speak and communicate and accepting us as we are. But instead, it seems like most non autistic people would rather try and find a cure to fix us, rather than make accommodations for us.

For example, non autistic people often try to change the way that we move, by silencing our hands, telling us that our interests are boring, that we talked too much about one subject, that we are creepy because we don’t make eye contact, or that we are just plain old weird. Those are the more mild problems that we encounter. I know that people trying to good with things like autism the acceptance. But often they aren’t really helping us.

People are aware of autism. They know that autism exist. But what are they doing for acceptance? That’s what matters most autistic adults that I know. We have had enough awareness we’ve had enough campaign led by groups like Autism Speaks. Now is the time for accepting an understanding. Listen to people. Hear about our experiences.

Also I used non autistic people instead of allistic because my text to speech app kept trying to change allistic to autistic. Just as a point of reference.

Anonymous asked: why are you a feminist? genuinely curious and not trying to be rude or anything i swear. if it came out rude im sorry.

freckledbuttchester:

because women get longer and harsher sentences for committing the same crimes as men. because women still don’t get the same education or pay as men. because women have to put up with sexual harassment, in the workplace or on the street, for fear of losing their jobs or being assaulted. because when a woman doesn’t respond to catcalls, she gets called a whore or a bitch.

because insulting a guy by calling him a girl or implying he has feminine traits is the go to insult. because a guy wearing make up or a dress or being sensitive is seen as a bad thing, because those are things women do, and being a woman is bad, being a woman is weak.

because women are expected to marry and have children, and if you tell someone you don’t want kids or marriage as a woman, people tell you that you’ll change your mind, or react with shock, or pity. and if you’re a man, people nod along and respect you for valuing your career, independence, etc. 

because women are called sluts if they enjoy sex or if they have a lot of sex. because people assume there’s something wrong with them, that they have daddy issues or a traumatic past if they have a healthy sexual appetite. because women are called sluts if they don’t enjoy sex. because women have to make up excuses to not have sex. because women have to lie about having a boyfriend because it’s the only way a guy will leave them alone.

because when you tell a guy you’re queer he’ll say, “REALLY? you don’t look like it. are you sure? maybe you haven’t met the right guy. maybe it’s just a phase”

because most lesbian porn is created for straight men.

because you can joke about raping or killing a woman and people will laugh. and if you tried to make the same kind of “joke” towards men, people would tell you that you’ve gone too far. because as soon as you talk about how women don’t need men, both men and women come out to tell you that you’re wrong, that you’re stupid, that you’re a worthless asshole. 

because when a man takes charge of a situation, he’s independent and a leader. but when a woman does the same thing, she’s a bossy bitch.

because women have their bodies touched without consent (from rape to people touching your tattoos without asking)

because women are used as sexual props in advertising or television shows or movies. because we’re sexualized from a horribly young age. because 10 year olds can’t wear shorts to school because they’ll be too distracting to boys.

because old white men try to control women’s bodies and reproductive rights.

because if you’re a woman and you have a strong opinion or emotion, men immediately ask if you’re on your period.

because even in fandoms, male characters are almost immediately loved/forgiven for anything, but female characters have to be nice and funny and sassy and beautiful and strong and fierce and interesting enough to be considered a good character.

because little girls are told that little boys pull their hair and treat them like shit because they like them. because little girls are taught that they play with dolls, not cars. because little girls are told to be careful and little boys can climb trees without a word. because little girls have an aisle full of pink princesses and little boys get science kits and super heroes. because grown men still get all the superheroes.

because when you say you’re a feminist because you want it to be EQUAL, one of the first responses you get is, “so can I hit girls now?”

because feminism still has a long way to go in being inclusive to trans, queer, disabled, and minority women.
