I FUCKING LOVE writing like this.  When she says “I think that’s a little harsh” and she really means “Yeah, that’s what I mean, Einstein.”  And it’s perfectly clear.

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

That bullshit heart surgery example doesn’t even make sense though, does that person think that we’re still doing heart surgery the exact same way we’ve always done heart surgery? As if medicine isn’t constantly changing and updating? Wow it’s almost like people are finding excuses to not have to think critically about the world!

You mean we don’t still take people’s brains out and rub them in salt to dispel the devil and cure headaches? I’m pretty sure that’s established medieval protocol, wouldn’t want to mix things up.

CRUCIAL

Transphobia is OVER because of Laverne Cox, right??!@? RIGHT&#187;&#187;@&gt;#&gt;!!????  Nope - and she knows better, of course.

The Nazis hated culture itself, because it is essentially international and therefore subversive of nationalism. What they called Nazi culture was a local, perverted, nationalistic cult, by which a few major artists and many minor ones were honoured for their Germanness, not their talent.

Christopher and his Kind, Christopher Isherwood  (via agrww)

To hate inherently international things is to hate culture itself.  Isherwood, stop being so right all the time.
