“Why do they still attract the crowds? Silent cinema is much more than film without words. Silent is precisely what silent cinema is not. It is what happens when an audience and a band of musicians gather in a dark room to observe a powerful light projected through a reel of film that bears the captured images of men and women who lived in the first three decades of the last century. Faces move on the screen; the musicians interpret the action; the members of the audience respond to both, and each other. At its best, it has more in common with attending a séance than going to the multiplex.”—Too late, we realise that silence was golden in the cinema - Telegraph (via vaginawoolf)
So I follow this Scooby Doo tumblr where the person who runs it pretends to be Scooby Doo and types with the “Raggy” speech impediment or whatever. I’ve noticed a Fred and a Velma tumblr that sort of plays along with them and pretends to be those characters. I thought it was a little weird and maybe a little sad, but good fun, I suppose. Then it occurred to me that all of them could just be one person, signing in and writing in their own ask boxes, and that seems weirder.
Feminist marriage is a three-way contract between two women and government. Most women will have children, and few women can afford or will go to the extreme of using artificial insemination to achieve pregnancy. Government is the automatic third party collecting “child support” entitlements for children born in these marriages.
Children will be born of extramarital affairs backed by welfare guarantees and child support entitlements. Feminist marriages are automatically entitled with many tax-free, governmental income sources for having children.
Feminist marriage is a marriage between any two women and the welfare state. It constitutes a powerful feminist takeover of marriage by government, and places the NOW in the position of dictating government policy as a matter of “feminist Constitutional rights.”
Feminist marriage will be far more attractive to women than heterosexual marriage. Sexual orientation does not matter when two women marry and become “married room-mates.” They can still have as many boyfriends as they want and capture the richest ones for baby-daddies by “forgetting” to use their invisible forms of birth control. On average, a feminist marriage will have at least four income sources, two of them tax-free, plus backup welfare entitlements.
Feminist marriage is government-sponsored serial polyandry, uniquely enriched by one or more substantial income sources not available to the other two planned subordinate classes of marriage.
“If I were a middle class white guy writing on Forbes.com about being a poor Black kid I’d be clueless. I’d be so clueless that I wouldn’t realize that I’m clueless, so I would not know that I should really, really step away from my expensive computer and not press send on my condescending, paternalistic and simplistic little essay that breezily fixes the problems of poor Black kids. I wouldn’t think, well, if these steps are so easy — use the Internet to get more learning and try real hard — then why don’t more kids do that? I mean, wouldn’t some of them have thought of that already? No, they wouldn’t because none of them are middle class white guys.”—
