Detail - Queen Margherita of Italy by Pasquale di Criscito

Fairy godmothers develop a very deep understanding about human nature, which makes the good ones kind and the bad ones powerful.

FALL PREVIEW - Here’s a detail of a Alison Saar's new drawing Pearly Study, which will be on view in her upcoming L.A. Louver exhibition opening this fall.
This work belongs to her sugar sack shroud series, featuring drawings made directly on found sugar sacks that are worn down from use, and still bear traces of their original labeling.

i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again:

the big bang theory is not a smart comedy. it relies on cliches and stereotypes that are offensive to everyone they reflect. there is little to no originality in any storyline or relationship.

the funniest thing about this show is that people compare it to 30 rock, parks and rec, louie, veep, etc

there is a difference between a smart show and a show that happens to have nerds on it.

I finally watched The Big Bang Theory today.

There was a TV on the wall in this Thai diner, and naturally because of the noise level of the customers, the employees had the audio turned off - but there was closed captioning on, so people could still watch the show.

I was waiting in a rather lengthy line, and sort of became invested in the show within the span of the time that I was standing there, slowly shuffling forward.  

I was stunned.

pragtergeist:

Like, I want everyone to be aware that when you present these definitions of what it means to be human/what makes humans special, where in humanity is defined as the ability

  • to engage in rational thought
  • to labor purposefully 
  • to make and/or use tools
  • to create art
  • to connect with others - intellectually, socially or emotionally 
  • to experience empathy or any other emotion 
  • to experience sexual or romantic attraction 
  • to transmit or receive cultural knowledge through social interactions 
  • to use and understand language 
  • to engage in politics 

or however else, you are actually doing a really horrible thing. It doesn’t matter how positive your intentions are, because when you define human as the ability to do X thing you have effectively dehumanized everyone who can’t do X. This means that you are excluding a whole hell of a lot of people - many but not all of which are disabled and/or non-neurotypical - from the human family. And that has and does have deadly consequences. 

Every human being on this planet is human by the simple merit of being human, regardless of intellectual, psychological or physical condition. Any definition of humanity that does not include all humans is not only useless, but also actively harmful.
