iseekum asked: Would you call yourself a feminist or an equal rights activist? Is there any reason you'd choose one over the other? I got into a debate with a friend and grew curious, since you're the most vocal feminist lady I follow. Also, hi!

gailsimone:

The whole problem with this kind of question is that to answer it, I have to accept a definition of feminism that I don’t agree with, that isn’t reality-based at all. 

This is what the passive aggressive types and the anti-feminists always want, they want you to acknowledge the warped, nonsensical viewpoint they have, because it validates them, it coddles them. It’s nothing I choose to take part in, I just think it’s goofy.

There are legitimate things in the history of feminism that are shameful, but those things are not what these people are complaining about. They are complaining about a minority opinion so minute as to barely exist at all. 

Men don’t like it when all men are judged by a minority of jerks, neither do women, neither do feminists. 

What the vast majority of feminists want is fair treatment and equal opportunity, but that is such a universally understandable goal that huge numbers of creeps have spend untold resources trying to make it about every other possible permutation. Responding at all might be a little more than such attempts deserve, but every once in a while, you have to clean the damn catbox or the stink gets unbearable.

Edited to add: I am not saying the questioner is one of those people, I am saying that is how is often phrased.

Anonymous asked: How would you do an MLP retelling of The Wizard of Oz if you ever did one?

nintendogal55:

You know, I can’t help but wonder if the show will do that at some point! I mean, that’s a formula that so many other shows have used, so it’s likely. But knowing the way MLP works, they’ll take the formula and then slant the box a little bit. :P So if they ever do a Wizard of Oz retelling episode, I imagine they’d do something like that.

I did have little notions, but nothing overly solid. XD I do have a few character ideas, though. But even there, I’m a bit conflicted.

Count me as a second for Fluttershy as Dorthy and Angel as Toto, though as you pointed out, I’m sure the MLP showrunners would do Twilight/Spike in those roles >.<

Also, an alternate for the Tin Man could be Twilight. I mean, shes got the whole cold logic thing going on from time to time. I could definitely see her needing a heart! XD

What we need would be extra roles for Rainbow, Pinkie and Rarity. Rainbow as captain of the emerald city guard? Definitely Pinkie as the head of the Lollipop guild! (Or would that be Cupcake Guild now?) And thinking about it, I bet Rares could be Glinda. It would be lovely and ironic to have a somewhat self obsessed character filling that supposed selfless role. XD

Went Barnes and Noble and happened upon this. Clearly someone else out there thinks (and ships) as I do ;)

My logical mind does offer the benefit of the doubt, especially since the boxes are made in a certain way and was likely unintentional. At best, it could’ve been because they’re the pegasi of the Main Six.
But the shipper is thinking that someone on staff totally ships it! :P

Shippers be shipping X&#8217;D

Anonymous asked: Why do you hate the heat?

joshscorcher:

When you’re cold, you can put on as many layers as you need.

When you’re hot, there’s only so many layers you can take off.

Agreed! Exactly why I can’t stand the heat.

Sometimes you just look at yourself and think, “It’s so damn hot… do I really need all this skin?”
