"She’s tore up plenty. But she’ll fly true"

(via bethanyactually)

“We praise people for being “naturally” smart, too, “naturally” athletic, and etc. But studies continue to show, as they have for some time now, that it is generally healthier to praise schoolchildren for being hardworking, than for being naturally gifted. We know now that to emphasize a child’s inherent ability places pressure on that child to continue to be accidentally talented, which is something that is hard for anyone to control. When the children who are applauded for their natural skills fail, they are shown to take the failure very personally. After all, the process of their success has always seemed mysterious and basic and inseparable from the rest of their identity, so it must be they who are failing as whole people. When students are instead complimented and rewarded for their effort and improvement, they tend to not be so hard on themselves. When they fail, they reason, “Well, I’ll work harder next time.” They learn that they are capable of success, rather than constantly automatically deserving of it, and they learn simultaneously that they are bigger and more complex than their individual successes or failures.”

Kate of Eat the Damn Cake, The Stupidity of “Natural” Beauty (via theimperfectascent)

I lost whole years of my life to self-loathing and self-sabotaging because I couldn’t sustain being ‘gifted’.  Don’t make the same mistake.

“Women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men are afraid of meeting someone fat.”

When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating.

It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”

I mean, it’s just true.

Rory Williams character study: Doing it properly

A tiny little character detail I always loved- Rory’s respect for the dead. Whether it’s because of his nurse’s training or some deeper reason, he’s always quietly adamant that things are done properly. Returning Alaya back to her kind, covering up the Doctor, pushing the funeral boat out to sea…whether the dead person in question is a friend or an enemy he treats them the same.

And, in The Big Bang Rory doesn’t get really angry with the Doctor until he casually steps over Amy’s dead body. Watch his face and body language! You can see how this is a man who’d willingly protect his true love’s corpse for two thousand years.
