Show me your moves..!

If you had told me five years ago that this Marvel craze would’ve eventually resulted in Baron Zemo showing up in an anime I would have punched you and told you that you were crazy.

Shows what I know.

 “I recently uploaded The Queen of Hearts (a collection of novels written in the 1850s) by Wilkie Collins to the MR library. As well as changing ‘gayety’ to ‘gaiety’ and ‘gayly’ to ‘gaily’ I also changed ‘gay’ to ‘light-hearted’. I did this because the English language has changed in the last 150 odd years. In our day ‘a gay man’ would almost certainly be read as ‘a homosexual man,’ and this is simply not what Collins meant – he would have used a different term if he had dared to mention a character’s sexual orientation at all. I did add a note to the posting that I had updated spelling and hyphenation – I also changed ‘to-day’ to ‘today’ for example.”

I am still unsure how I feel about this. ~ eP

Wtf? Why would someone change the original text?? Anyone with half a brain/education knows that until less than 100 years ago, “gay” meant “happy”. Are we supposed to cut up every other classic work and replace their “outdated” words with modern ones? Language evolves, and people who read books written a long time ago are perfectly aware of this. If it’s a 160+ year old book that people are still reading, I’d imagine that the author was very intentional with his/her word choice, and for someone to alter them later on when converting the text to a format that may be widely disseminated is a travesty.

This made me really angry.

Not to be overly promotional or self-aggrandizing, but here’s something worthy of a comment. The article says, There are no gatekeepers, no one to make the judgement call if this is best practice.” In truth, we like to think of ourselves a bit as gatekeepers here. Project Gutenberg and other free services for getting public domain books serve a fantastic role and vital role, but at the end of the day when you pay for a Penguin Classic (or Oxford, Norton, Modern Library, etc., etc…), you pay for the services of an editor at Penguin and an academic editor who has taken the time to ensure that you’re getting an authentic text, whether it’s in print or eBook. That why you’ll almost always find a “Note on the Text” in our books explaining all the sources and editorial decisions. Turn back to our “Joan Eyre” situation a few months back if there are any doubts about how seriously both we and our scholars take this—we live and breathe this stuff here!

That’s awesome Penguin! Thanks for fighting the good fight!!

(Also woah, Classic Penguin reblogged me, cool!)

sooo the op thought readers are dumb or…?

Bunny falls asleep

bun didn’t actually fall asleep!! bunnies flop over like this when they feel safe and comfortable in their environment. they rarely stretch out and lay down because they’re prey animals, so when ur bun does completely lays on their side or their back, it means they feel 10000% safe around you

Watch: CNN compares traditional Maori greeting to Chippendales and horny emus

How long does it take for the most trusted news source to turn a boring non-story into a racist, xenophobic nightmare?

About 13 seconds it turns out, and that’s only because CNN news correspondent Jeanne Moos takes her time narrating the intro.

The only thing surprising about this is that it wasn’t split-screened with the fucking plane.

How is Draco racist?

just-writer-problems:

  • there is a trope called “Fantastic Racism”
  • basically, it’s racism in a fantasy context
  • the most obvious example would be the prejudice against Muggleborns and Muggles in Harry Potter
  • blood purism, which the Malfoy family believes in very strongly, is a very real thing, even in our world
  • "Mudblood" is basically the Muggleborn equivalent of the n-word
  • maybe Draco’s a victim of circumstance thanks to his father, and maybe there’s room for him to change
  • but he’s quite racist
