- Glamour UK: What do you get riled up about in a feminist context?
- Gillian Anderson: A lot. I have feminist bones and when I hear things or see people react to women in certain ways I have very little tolerance.
- Glamour UK: But don't you feel sorry for modern men? Not knowing whether they should help us with our bags and open doors for us or whether we'll see it as an affront?
- Gillian Anderson: No. I don't feel sorry for men.
Dude, what took you so long? That is THE fic of this fandom. Any other may come near, but is not as brilliant. ^^
Dude, I have to thank you for this. I started the story a few times ages ago and could never quite get into the beginning, but after I saw you singing its praises the other day, I decided to trust your impeccable judgement and stick with it. Very glad I did. (Although I have gotten NOTHING productive done for like the past 4 days!)
I wouldn’t say it’s now my *favourite* (I am a sucker for domesticity/deep emotional pain) but it’s for sure the best written one.
Just finished The Secret’s in the Telling.
Casual sexism, in a nutshell, is the “casual” and nonchalant use of sexist and misogynist language and rhetoric in everyday settings. Casual sexism can happen anywhere, and can creep up on any woman even in the most seemingly innocent situation. It comes not simply from the angry talk radio host foaming at the mouth about contraception, or from the “Men’s Rights Activist” on an angrier part of Reddit, but from our teachers, our friends, our siblings, our fathers. Casual sexism is insidious, not simply because what is being said is misogynistic or harmful, but because the people saying it are often doing so with absolutely no intention of doing any harm. Even if they realize the harmful nature of their comments, others may not, and it still becomes difficult to defend against casual sexism without being told that one is “overreacting.”
