[Image: Four gifs showing John Barrowma and another man, white balding and middle aged, on a game show speaking as Barrowman asks a question and the man attempts to answer. The conversation goes as follows:

Barrowman: On a clothing label which instruction is indicated by a solid black triangle with a cross through it?

Contestant: This is where we want the women in the team back, don’t we?

Barrowman: Or maybe you could help with the cleaning of the clothes every so often.]

#john barrowman is having none of your misogynist bullshit

i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant
"hahahaha women do laundry right john?  you with me, john?"
"don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”

This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.

Bolding mine.

Fuck yes. I usually don’t hand out cookies to men for just saying decent things, but this time I gotta break Barrowman off a piece just for this. 

Because not only did he deny the endorsement of that sexism, but he very handily made it clear that understanding clothing labels is not some Big Secret Woman Knowledge that women have because laundry is something only women (should) do. But rather that clothing tags are on EVERYONE’S FUCKING CLOTHES and if he doesn’t know what it means it’s because of a failing on HIS part.

So yeah. Have yourself a little chunk of oatmeal raisin praise there, Barrowman. Stay sexy.

Some damn good storytelling on this one.

Flick Faves for summer: Dangerous Beauty, 1998

Hardly ancient, but I do appreciate seeing a decent film from the 90s.

"Take up more space as a woman. Take up more time. Take your time. You are taught to hide, censor, move about without messing up decorum for a man’s comfort. Whether it’s said or not, you’re taught balance. Forget that. Displease. Disappoint. Destroy. Be loud, be righteous, be messy. Do not see yourself like glass. Like you could get dirty and clean. You are flesh. You are not constant. You change. Society teaches women to maintain balance and that robs us of our volatility. Our mercurial hearts. Calm and chaos. Love only when needed; preserve otherwise."

Nothing beats this kind of intimacy, when it’s about 3am and it feels like you’re the only two people in the world. There are no words or intentions, you’re just happy lying next to each other knowing that you never want to do this with anyone else. Just to consider that you’re each, essentially, a bag of bones and organs and muscles, and yet you’re both so much more than that because you’ve found each other and suddenly everything makes so much sense.

Cuteness. Especially that last one.

For advance reading, which should I read first: Embryology or Gray's Anatomy?

Oh hi there. Is this for Embryology? If yes, you won’t be needing Gray’s. That’ll come later. Langman is the bible for embryology, but as it is in MSU-College of Medicine, there is no sole source. Look for sources that you find are easier to understand. And you’ll be remembering tons of dates for that module. But don’t start too early. Have fun in the summer before med school. There are lots of times to study. :)
