All of The Sirens Are Driving Me Over The Stern.
Hi, I'm Maura. Welcome to my blog.
I will post things I like here, some of these things will include but are not limited to (and in no particular order):
Andrew Vanwyngarden, Evan Peters, Daniel Radcliffe, American Horror Story, MGMT, Harry Potter, Spongebob, Supernatural, Skyrim, Cats, and Fleet Foxes. I don't really have a theme other than, "Here's some stuff I like, ok cool."
You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.
Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone — profusely. But don’t apologize for being who you are.

This dominant narrative surrounding the inevitability of female objectification and victimhood is so powerful that it not only defines our concepts of reality but it even sets the parameters for how we think about entirely fictional worlds, even those taking place in the realms of fantasy and science fiction. It’s so normalized that when these elements are critiqued, the knee-jerk response I hear most often is that if these stories did not include the exploitation of women, then the game worlds would feel too “unrealistic” or “not historically accurate”. What does it say about our culture when games routinely bend or break the laws of physics and no one bats an eye? When dragons, ogres and magic are inserted into historically influenced settings without objection. We are perfectly willing to suspend our disbelief when it comes to multiple lives, superpowers, health regeneration and the ability to carry dozens of weapons and items in a massive invisible backpack. But somehow the idea of a world without sexual violence and exploitation is deemed too strange and too bizarre to be believable.
