I personally believe that “progressive” isn’t *what* you ship, it’s *how* you ship it.

saathi1013:

- it’s how you treat those who ship other pairings (or ot3+s) - kindness and thoughtfulness towards your fellow fan is more progressive than ship bashing, anon hate, or other forms of abuse
- it’s how you treat female characters and characters of color while pursuing your ship, even if you think they’re “in the way” of your OTP
- it’s how you treat the existence of bi/pansexuality, asexuality, aromanticism (we fucking count)
- it’s how you treat canonically queer characters
- it’s how you treat trans people/characters/headcanons
- it’s how you depict marginalized perspectives/narratives (falling back on harmful tropes can replicate harm)
- it’s how you treat actual queer people in fandom (if they say something might be problematic, maybe be more thoughtful about it in the future?)
- it’s about how you treat marginalized people/characters/perspectives aside from those listed above (like those with/about mental &/or physical disabilities, etc)
- it’s about who (characters, actors, media producers) you choose to “defend” - against whom or what? - and whose bad behavior you choose to excuse or overlook
- there are probably more bullet points, but this is all I can think of off the top of my head

I think it’s about how you ship, not what you ship.

This is how that scene should have gone.

I have loved this long, I shall love it forever.



Sherlock AU: When Sherlock is sent to rehab, he meets Doctor John Watson, the man responsible for turning his life around.



Early Feminists: Oh hey, we see that you can vote. We would like to vote also. I mean, since most of those laws effect us too and all.
Men: YOU JUST WANT SUPERIORITY OVER MEN!
Mid-century Feminists: Hey, that whole thing about how you can have careers and earn a living wage outside the home? Yes that sounds nice, we'd like the option to do that as well.
Men: YOU WANT A MATRIARCHY, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT!
Late 20th century Feminists: Hey we would like to make our own choices about our reproductive health, just like you've always had.
Men: YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE MEN'S RIGHTS AWAY!
Modern-day feminists: Hey, if you could you stop sexually assaulting/harassing us and them blaming us for it, that'd be pretty great.
Men: THIS IS MISANDRY, MISANDRY I SAY! FEMINISTS HAVE GONE TOO FAR!
Feminists: Um...
Men: THE END OF MEN IS NIGH! MALE OPPRESSION IS REAL! THE MATRIARCHAL AGE IS UPON US!

Axel de Stampa (France) - Architecture Animée

Motion in Architecture is mainly associated to the 4th dimension: Time. Time, through the body, experiences the building. In Architecture Animée (Animated Architecture), as part of Spontaneous architecture project, Axel de Stampa uses GIF format to develop a different approach. While the visitor doesn’t move, the building offers different perceptions, comes alive and reveals additional evidence. (cf. 1W1P)
