Okay people, are you ready to freak out about this?
Abi Morgan, brilliant brilliant writer of The Hour has written this movie called Suffragette, about the early steps of feminist movement, that will feature an abundance of badass female characters fighting against oppression. No seriously, take a look at the official synopsis:

SUFFRAGETTE is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. MAUD was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational. [x]

And no, I’m not done here. Lo and behold: the cast.

Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham-Carter, Meryl Streep (yes you heard me), Romola Garai, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben fucking Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson and Samuel West.

Oh, and yeah, it will also be directed by a woman, Sarah Gavron, who’s known for Brick Lane.

I’m generally careful with advanced praise but DO YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF FEMALE CAST AND CREW KICKING ASS.

Also those of you who haven’t seen The Hour yet, do. Because this woman knows how to write her female characters (and, coincidentally, her male ones as well. What a surprise.).

I’ll be in my corner waiting for early next year (which is when they said they’d release it, but there’s no actual date set so far).

why the fuck does kimberly get less coffee
get rid of jeffrey and keep his mug

This is the perfect visual metaphor for heterosexuality.

I really can’t get over what a good metaphor this is.

they could’ve just made them square but that’d probably be too gay 

but then how would the dude be in the lady’s space, expropriating her value? D:

Casual reminder that in one of Leonardo da Vinci’s many notebooks containing innumerable artistic and scientific sketches and notes of incomprehensible important, there is a sketch of two penises with legs and tails walking towards a crudely drawn anus.
The sketch was most likely done by Leonardo’s apprentice Salai, who was not only very likely one of Leonardo’s lovers, but who was also infamously mischievous. Better yet, the anus is literally labeled “Salai.”
So either Salai drew these while Leonardo wasn’t looking just to annoy his boyfriend, or Leonardo himself put actual time and energy into drawing these. Either way, the human race is truly blessed to have made such a discovery.
There are dick drawings like the ones you see on desks in school in Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks. Please cherish this information.

In the midst of exploring Renaissance Italy history for reasons, I have found a wonder.
