When asked by another reporter how Lagertha was able to reconcile with Aslaug, the woman pregnant with Ragnar’s child, Winnick said:
“I think Lagertha understands the dynamic, and if anything I think she blames Ragnar more than Aslaug. Here’s a woman that shows up without having any support, shows up with a swollen belly, needs the help of Ragnar. [Leaving] shows [Lagertha’s] character of being a strong woman, and not having her ego get the best of her and being able to make a decision that she will do what’s right for herself and stick up for herself and decide that this is not the best situation for her and she really needs to leave. So, if anything, who do you really blame in a situation when someone cheats on someone? Do you blame the mistress, or do you blame the husband?”

This just punched me in the heart.
This really hit me hard. I’m just about in tears.
Its funny cause LGBT stands for Lesbians, Gays, Bi, and Trans. So wtf?
it infuriates me when people tell me “lifes too short to not forgive people!” like NO lifes too short for me to continually allow abusive and manipulative behavior in my life and live in a constant state of anxiety bc I want to be “nice” or whatever

Who says dots and lace don’t belong in the workplace? :)
I was at Walgreens buying my brother a birthday card. An elderly woman was also in the aisle. She said “can you believe they have wedding cards for two men and look even two women!”
But she then said “I’ve seen so many changes in my 80 years, it’s wonderful how things are moving forward.”
[internal tears of joy]
She then mentioned that she didn’t know any gay people but that everyone should be treated like they would want to be treated. I smiled and said “you know one now” and pointed at myself. She smiled, patted my shoulder and said “now I do”.
i’m crying oh gosh
TUMBLR PROF ANNOUNCEMENT: If you are trans or nonbinary and you are in the same situation as the student above, email your professors before class starts. I understand that it might be uncomfortable, but generally professors are absolutely happy to accommodate you. I know I always will be!
If your professor does not respond positively, contact the Dean or the campus LGBT+ resource center with a copy of the email and show them that you are concerned about gender discrimination in the classroom.
Also this is a link to the template I used to write this email, and I’ve seen another similar template going around, and this was extremely helpful.
just a reminder that this is an option for you folks! i did it and all my teachers replied within a few hours saying that it was okay. you can do this! school does not have to be painful.
