I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.

When gay men use misogynistic language but are offended by stereotypes that homosexual men are effeminate
Maybe if you didn’t contribute to the perception of femininity being something negative you wouldn’t be so offended by being associated with femininity.
I think I might I’ve read all Pacific Rim related post on internet and this quote give me so many feels. Guillermo del toro is such a great guy. I should start to work on real life, but Pacific Rim is way much better.

Bad Ass Dominicana: Jarina de Marco - She’s is the daughter of renowned Dominican folklorist and singer Irka Mateo, and as a toddler she tagged along with her mom on musicological expeditions. She was raised between Brazil, the Dominican Republic and Canada, where her family was forced to flee after her parents brazenly sang a song against far-right president Joaquín Balaguer in front of a military audience in 1994.
Fast forward a few decades, and Jarina draws on those experiences to make futuristic tropical pop, taking equally from Caribbean folk traditions and hip-hop culture. In a yet-unreleased song, she samples Screamin’ Jay Hawkins‘ version of “I’ve Put A Spell On You,” and flips it into a revenge anthem proudly invoking Dominican vodou, in which spell casting is an actual real thing. What you might not pick up on if you haven’t spent time in the DR is that vodou and Afro-Dominican culture in general is extremely taboo due to centuries of Euro-centric conditioning. So by casually throwing those references into a pop song, Jarina is doing something pretty revolutionary. (Source)
