Sansa is one of the strongest individuals in the entire series. In a world where people drop like flies, in an abusive situation that would break so many people, Sansa survives. Sansa endures. She stays strong, and she never gives up. As Brienne says to Catelyn, she has a “woman’s courage.” She learns how to play the game. She wears her courtesy for her armor, and she listens, and she adapts, and she keeps her cards close to her chest. She learns how to smile and curtsey and use her words to keep going long after other, older, more experienced players, including her father, are destroyed. But she will not kneel. She will not weaken. She remains strong, and she remains determined, because the North remembers, and her day will come. Her “woman’s courage” keeps her alive and in the game where characters like Arya would not last five minutes.
Most impressive of all, Sansa maintains one key part of her personality that others might dismiss as “weak” or “feminine”: her kindness. She manages to be brave and gentle and caring, despite the trauma she goes through. She shows love and affection to little Robert and to Tommen. She puts herself at risk to save Ser Dontos, using her words and her courtesy to trick Joffrey into doing as she desires. She cares for and calms the people of King’s Landing during the Battle of the Blackwater, despite the fact that she is so young and so inexperienced and few of them have ever done anything to help her. She knows that if she were Queen, she would make the people love her, because she cares about other people, even when her own life is torn apart.
Traditional femininity is not innately inferior. It has its own kind of strength and its own kind of power, and Sansa Stark demonstrates that better than any other character I’ve encountered. She is not fierce or rebellious. She is not ruthless or brutal. But she is strong. She is a survivor. And that should not be dismissed."

I’M CRYING I’M IN HYSTERICS I DON’T THINK I’LL EVER RECOVER THIS MEANS I CANNOT GO TO COLLEGE ON WEDNESDAY THANK YOU
Putting this on my main blog because I know everyone loves history as much as I do and needs to laugh.
I think this just gets funnier every time I see it.
A police officer in Kansas City, Mo. is facing internal review after he reportedly posted an inflammatory message on Facebook about the slain Ferguson, Mo. teen whose death has led to mounting chaos.
Televison station KCTV reported on Monday that Kansas City Police Department Officer Marc Catron posted a picture to his Facebook page along with this caption: “I’m sure young Michael Brown is innocent and just misunderstood. I’m sure he is a pillar of the Ferguson community.”
The photo depicted a black man with a wad of money in his mouth, pointing a gun at the camera. But the photo wasn’t of Brown at all. It was of a man in Oregon accused of murder.
Catron also reportedly posted about the violence that has erupted in Ferguson since the fatal police shooting. “Remember how white people rioted after OJ’s acquittal? Me neither,” Catron wrote, according to the television station.
"Facing internal review"? This officer needs to be fired, immediately. Someone who is clearly a racist has no business policing a community.
this is my favorite video of all time bar none
I cannot stop laughing.
omg my stomach is hurting i laughed so much
WHAT THE FUCK
I’ve literally watched this like, five times in a row.
Ahahaha I can’t…
Burguiere then has two guys on the show act out a few of the questions asked in the survey, sarcastically labeling each scenario as “RAPE!” Burguiere neglects to explain that the survey also asks about sexual coercion and separates it from rape in the statistics. Watch the video here.
The Blaze’s skits mocking the sexual assault survey prompted some negative coverage on Wednesday to which Beck himself addressed on his radio show on Thursday.
"Rape is not a laughing matter, not is it a matter that you lie about. You don’t cheapen the real horror of rape," he said on his show. "I’m tired of being accused of standing with abusers and rapists. I’m tired of being called a monster. I’m just tired of the lies."
Beck goes on to explain in a tearful monologue that his father was sexually abused when he was younger. Beck explains that while his father did not sexually abuse anyone, he did physically abuse members of Beck’s family.
Glenn Beck, one of the most reprehensible shitbags on the planet, runs bits that feature men making fun of rape victims. Then, when he’s called out on it and held accountable for his behavior, he makes it all about himself.
Classic Right Wing Male Persecution syndrome.
Just shut the fuck up forever, Glenn Beck, and everyone will be happy, including you.
