“When I was a kid, someone who got their sex changed was a TRANSVESTITE. Right, it’s just what they were, it wasn’t derogative, it was just what they were. And so then 6-8 years later I say transvestite and someone calls me an asshole and they’re like ‘no it’s TRANSSEXUAL!’ right? And then I’m like ‘shit, I’m an asshole’ and I feel bad and I say transsexual for 6-8 years and then finally someone says ‘why are you saying transsexual! that’s offensive! you’re an asshole! it’s TRANSGENDER!’ and I’m like ‘shit! I’ll call you whatever the fuck you want just pick one thing and stick with it’”—Ray William Johnson (via elvenstyle)
"What if the preacher or father’s saying ‘Someone here’s lost and hopeless’ was tantamount to those Sun-Times horoscopes that are specially designed to be so universally obvious that they always give their horoscope readers that special eerie feeling of particularity and insight, exploiting the psychological fact that most people are narcissistic and prone to the illusion that they and their problems are uniquely special and that if they’re feeling a certain way then surely they’re the only person who is feeling like that.

2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her alone.
3. If you pull over to help a woman whose car has broken down, remember not to rape her.
4. If you are in an elevator and a woman gets in, don’t rape her.
5. When you encounter a woman who is asleep, the safest course of action is to not rape her.

7. Remember, people go to the laundry room to do their laundry. Do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.
8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from raping women, ask a trusted friend to accompany you at all times.
9. Carry a rape whistle. If you find that you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.
10. Don’t forget: Honesty is the best policy. When asking a woman out on a date, don’t pretend that you are interested in her as a person; tell her straight up that you expect to be raping her later. If you don’t communicate your intentions, the woman may take it as a sign that you do not plan to rape her.
"Well you see, when I was looking for someone to help with this business, and I saw your name in the book," Briston said, "you can perhaps imagine how it —well, it felt like—like a sign. A sign from [late] Charlie. Saying I was right."
"OK," said Strike cautiously, hoping that he had not been mistaken for a medium.
“Grown-ups don’t look like grown-ups on the inside either. Outside, they’re big and thoughtless and they always know what they’re doing. Inside, they look just like they always have. Like they did when they were your age. Truth is, there aren’t any grown-ups. Not one, in the whole wide world.”—Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane (via poussierecosmique)
“Nobody actually looks like what they really are on the inside. You don’t. I don’t. People are much more complicated than that. It’s true of everybody.”—Neil Gaiman, Lettie Hempstock The Ocean at The End of the Lane (via goodasgould)
