i'm pretty sure the wikipedia thing is meant to be a joke. Jokes are like art, they don't have to be politically correct. You're restricting the creative ability. Yes it's not 100% accurate, but it's going to give someone a small laugh and help them get on with their day. That's the point. Not to harm people. it wasn't written by someone who deliberately wanted to do harm, it was written by someone who wanted to give others something to distract them from this crazy depressing world.

If you can’t do something as simple as “write a joke that doesn’t invalidate, demean, or insult an entire group of people who aren’t hurting anyone” then perhaps a lack of creativity is your own personal problem, and not the fault of “political correctness”.

People who claim that all jokes are harmless just by the virtue of being jokes are the scum of Earth.

As SJWario says, if being considerate in the humor you write is not a good creative exercise for you, then your writing skills are shit.

I’m so sick of people who outright deny representation with arguments like “but political correctness destroys creativity/is censorship/is the Devil” arguments.
Cause YEAH, RIGHT. As if casually perpetuating the same bigotry as always was super-duper creative :-/

Can we please, please please just call a moratorium on “The female characters are just so BORING so why would I write about them?” when 1. male characters that are just as underdeveloped as some female characters still get written about more and critiqued less and 2. people have the imaginative capacity to dream up entire AUs that have little to do with canon and 3. THE WHOLE POINT OF FANFICTION IS TO BE TRANSFORMATIVE AND TELL THE STORIES THAT FALL THROUGH THE CRACKS AND TO FIX WHAT’S BROKEN.

Like, don’t tell me ever that the answer to bad or underdeveloped female characters is to not write them at all.  What happens when aspiring writers don’t ever even practice developing those characters?  Do we get more original works without interesting, developed female characters because people never bothered to learn how to make them part of the story?

"don’t tell me ever that the answer to bad or underdeveloped female characters is to not write them at all." <— fucking thank you.

(also: let’s not forget that the standards by which we judge whether or not a character is “bad” or “well-written” is SUPER biased in favor of white male characters.)

An Israeli academic has claimed that raping wives and mothers of Palestinian Hamas militants is the only thing that could deter further terrorist attacks.
The remarks by renowned Middle East scholar Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University were made three weeks ago after the grim discovery of the bodies of the three kidnapped Israeli teenagers, but the recording was published online (in Hebrew) on Monday.
"The only thing that could deter a suicide bomber is knowing that if caught, his sister or his mother would be raped," said Kedar on Israel Radio Bet.
"It sounds very bad, but that’s the Middle East," he continued. "You have to understand the culture in which we live. The only thing that deters [Hamas leaders] is a threat to the connection between their heads and their shoulders."
To the shocked radio presenter who said that “we cannot take such steps, of course”, Kedar replied:
"I’m not talking about what we should or shouldn’t do. I’m talking about the facts. The only thing that deters a suicide bomber is the knowledge that if he pulls the trigger or blows himself up, his sister will be raped. That’s all. That’s the only thing that will bring him back home, in order to preserve his sister’s honor."
Kedar served for 25 years in the military intelligence, where he specialised in Islamic groups. He is currently a researcher at the right-wing Begin-Sadat Centre for Strategic Studies of Bar Ilan but previously worked for a shadowy organisation, the Israel Academia Monitor, which fights left-leaning academic professors.

At which point do you say ‘enough is enough’ and speak out against your hard earned tax dollars being sent to/your leaders supporting this country?
Ethnic cleansing, targeting civilians, ambulances, hospitals, harvesting organs of dead Palestinians without consent, forced sterilisation of Ethiopians, land grab, apartheid wall, illegal settlements, and now incitement to rape - is it time to wake up, world?

Cersei and Jaime, Underworld AU
froehliche-apokalypse

(Since I never saw Underworld this is just a general Werewolf and Vampires!AU thing now)

„This entire place reeks of wet dog,” Cersei groused as she lifted her crimson red sleeve to cover her nose.

Jaime grinned, and his long fangs reflected the moonlight falling through the lonely window high in the walls of the stairwell they were climbing. The sight of his teeth, the smell of his hunger alerted her to her own thirst – since the day of their birth they had been hungry at the same time, and until their milk teeth had fallen out (eerily simultaneously), neither of them had been able to eat properly if they weren’t sucking at the same victim.

“Shouldn’t you be used to the smell by now, Cersei?” he asked, while he gently placed his hand on her hip, urging her forward ever so slightly. He had found a room where they’d be able to ‘feed’ without having to fear any interruption, at the top of this old, burned-out tower, and he was eager to get to this room.

“The pups smell different. Sharper. The half-mature ones especially.” She wrinkled her nose. “And I hate the smell of the female pups.” They smelled so completely different from her own children that Cersei hadn’t even realized that this smell was indeed coming from the little Starks at first. Her own children smelled like copper and iron, like she and Jaime did. Werewolf pups smelled like dog and earth. Disgusting.

(Wasn’t it a good thing that the mother’s blood always determined her children’s species? It would have been difficult to explain to her werewolf husband why his children didn’t have any of his species’ traits otherwise.)

Jaime smiled and leaned in closer to her, pushed his nose into her hair, right behind her ear. “You and your fine nose… Just shut the smells out, Cersei… Concentrate on the important ones…”

She raised her eyebrows and turned towards him, let him push her against the wall of the stairwell. “The important ones, huh? Like your smell?” She grinned and leaned forward to lick a fine line over the seam of his mouth.

He opened his lips and nipped her tongue ever so gently. “If you keep doing this, I’m going to have my midnight meal right here and now,” he whispered against her lips.

She grinned and leaned back, so that he could see how she opened her mouth and let the tip of her tongue run over her own sharp fangs. “Let’s go up there. I know you, Jaime, you need more space than this for your meal…” And so did she.

He grinned and leaned down slightly, just to let his tongue glide over her carotid. A warm shiver ran through Cersei’s body, but then she hissed lowly to remind him to finally move up the last few stairs and into the room at the top of the tower.
