Gay men need to stop acting like a revulsion for the female body is a required trait for male homosexuality. It’s not. That’s misogynists excusing their hatred as innate and immutable.
SAID IS NOT DEAD.
Said is all but invisible in writing. Using too many alternatives for said draws the reader’s attention to it and can make characters sound very strange. Alternatives are fine when used for a good reason. “To avoid said” is not a good reason.
It’s perfectly okay to use said.
commentary but also I really like lists of words/synonyms
For MedievalPOC, a blogger here on tumblr who receives endless hate and threats for exposing people to alternate historical narratives and for discussing systemic racism, criticizing academic gatekeeping and the disenfranchisement of American indigenous people to name a few.
I’ve learned so much from this person both in terms of facts and critical thinking skills that I wanted to give something back more tangible than a donation (although this person does all this amazing work for zero money [and possibly endangers their own personal safety as well as credibility in their chosen field] in their free time, so if you check out the blog and appreciate what you learn I’d encourage you to make a donation yourself)
Thank you so much for your dedication, passion, and time, MedievalPOC, you’re making a difference and though your progress will be hampered every step of the way by those benefiting from the status quo, you will also be supported and celebrated and I hope that gives you strength.

As someone who took training to get AED certified I can confirm that this is 100% legit.
The raven is sometimes known as “the wolf-bird.” Ravens, like many other animals, scavenge at wolf kills, but there’s more to it than that.
Both wolves and ravens have the ability to form social attachments and they seem to have evolved over many years to form these attachments with each other, to both species’ benefit.
There are a couple of theories as to why wolves and ravens end up at the same carcasses. One is that because ravens can fly, they are better at finding carcasses than wolves are. But they can’t get to the food once they get there, because they can’t open up the carcass. So they’ll make a lot of noise, and then wolves will come and use their sharp teeth and strong jaws to make the food accessible not just to themselves, but also to the ravens.
Ravens have also been observed circling a sick elk or moose and calling out, possibly alerting wolves to an easy kill. The other theory is that ravens respond to the howls of wolves preparing to hunt (and, for that matter, to human hunters shooting guns). They find out where the wolves are going and following. Both theories may be correct.
Wolves and ravens also play. A raven will sneak up behind a wolf and yank its tail and the wolf will play back. Ravens sometimes respond to wolf howls with calls of their own, resulting in a concert of howls and calls.

What did I say? Did I not say this was dark-sided?
how about putting some POC on your show?
Can I get a black/brown person thats not a damn barbarian/slave or lying snake? How bout that for drawing my attention?
Does ANYBODY of color work at HBO? Like, this is the classic example of Missing the Point(TM). Wow, that they think to draw in more Black/Latino people is to use Hip-Hop and not cast them in diverse and significant roles in their programming, or hire them to write shows, or direct shows, or run shows, is really all kinds of problematic and why nearly 75% of their viewership is white. Don’t act like that concerns you when you pull nonsense like this, HBO. I mean seriously.
That headline was a wild adventure from start to finish.
The picture just clinches it
can’t stop laughing
Oh my god male novelists are so fucking pretentious.
Bad sex award is hilarious. Bad authors just hate being called on their egomaniac rubbish.
