       "

We don’t often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that that they are, and that when they are free things will change for women as a natural consequence.

If men don’t have to be aggressive in order to be accepted women won’t feel compelled to be submissive. If men don’t have to control, women won’t have to be controlled.

Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong… It is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum not as two opposing sets of ideals.

"

- Emma Watson, UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, at a special event for the HeForShe campaign, United Nations Headquarters, New York, 20 September 2014

I saw this pic doing the rounds on the Internet and couldn’t stop myself from correcting the glaring error that the creator made.
That’s not the Union Jack behind Mr Burns, but the Flag of Great Britain. It hasn’t been used since 1801 when Ireland was made part the United Kingdom. You’ll notice that the diagonal red bars of St. Patrick’s Flag are missing.
So like, it’s a funny pic, but seriously, you’ve had 213 years to get used to the new flag.

Saw this posted context-free on Facebook, but with a bit of investigating, I’ve determined it to be from the 2013 anime Free! Question is, then, am I going to watch twelve episodes of Japanese high school swim team boy drama just for the accurate and carefully realized scenes of Sydney that apparently show up at some point?

(Anyone can do the harbour; more impressive is Central station and the interior of the train.)
