Tatiana Maslany on the complexity of women in Orphan Black
GQ Awards 2014
This is the kind of world we live in today
If your suggestion as an administrator is to tell a teenage girl to go under the knife instead of telling a teenage boy to respect women, you are in the wrong damn line of work.
That school should be closed.
What a disgrace.
This kind of shit should result in some equally awful medieval punishment.
In case you still don’t understand how badly women have had it, when anaesthetic was first invented doctors weren’t allowed to give it to women who were giving birth because the church said that the pain of childbirth was God punishing women for not being men
I was searching for different versions of this song and then BOOM! ITS JENSEN FUCKIN ACKLES SINGING HALLELUJAH!
I dont know if this is already here (if it is, I’m sorry)…
Holy shit I think my ovaries just exploded
I THOUGHT THIS WAS A RICKROLL WHAT THE HELL?
Nope. I give up. This man is perfect.
Yay!!!! Thank you Katie!
But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it.
This is what rape culture looks like.
This is what misogyny looks like.

I am a volunteer in my constituency office and I basically help the campaign officer (Jack) print off a lot of the leaflets and newsletters; deliver them to houses and I also occasionally canvas, which is knocking on people’s doors and asking them what party the vote for etc. (but mostly i try and avoid these just because canvassing makes me feel really ill anxiety wise?). I also do a lot of work on the computers, so putting up data onto our system on who votes for us etc.
if i’m not doing that i’m making coffee for them or tidying up after Jack. :’)
there’s not a lot to it, but I really enjoy it, Jack, the other volunteers, the councillors and the MP are so lovely, they are some of my best friends. I really love them. (Vikki the prospective MP likes my selfies all the time on facebook so)
So yeah. That’s it.
OH OCCASIONALLY I RAID THE SUPERMARKET TO ASK IF THEY HAVE CARDBOARD BOXES FOR OUR LITERATURE BUT THAT IS WORSE THAN CANVASSING.
Wow it sounds really nice ^_^ I get you about the canvassing though but otherwise it sounds peachy :P
