“Once you start to speak, people will yell at you. They will interrupt you, put you down and suggest it’s personal. And the world won’t end. And the speaking will get easier and easier. And you will find you have fallen in love with your own vision, which you may never have realized you had. And you will lose some friends and lovers, and realize you don’t miss them. And new ones will find you and cherish you. And you will still flirt and paint your nails, dress up and party, because, as I think Emma Goldman said, “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution.” And at last you’ll know with surpassing certainty that only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking.” —Audre Lorde (via blackheartedlove)
12:34 am moments of horror where you remember that one of your classes for fall you signed up for bc u want 2 hate-fuck a libertarian who’s taking it
it's interesting how korra grew up pretty sheltered in the compound surrounded by white lotus sentries, sort of like a fairytale-ish princess in a tower. and she has ~magical powers~ whereas asami relies more on physical strength and is probs more politically and socially aware, having grown up in a metropolis. in fact asami even has your typical superhero origin story with the whole losing-a-parent-as-a-kid!
ugh yeah all of this like I don’t even have anything to add but I want it here
