but we are not men

I know you were always sort of on the fence about Taylor Swift but how are you feeling about all her amazing feminism lately?!

IT FEELS GREAT

i have actually always sort of instinctively liked taylor swift - maybe because she’s the same age as me and her music has been like the soundtrack to my twenties, or because she just writes such catchy songs, or whatever. and i usually really like her music! the only problem for me has been the content sometimes. i had trouble with speak now in particular because it had some pretty hostile anti-girl/male-idolization/special-snowflake themes running the whole way through it, so that’s where most of of my iffy feelings about her came from. 

and like - not to say that i called it, but i think red was pretty foretelling, because it really sharply moves away from a lot of that anti-girl stuff. it’s touchy-feely, it’s most about boys, but it’s a much more grown-up and mature way of looking at relationships - there’s no blaming of other girls for “stealing” guys or nasty comments about ex-girlfriends. you’ve got her gleefully singing about permanently ending her relationships and being young and free and scared. it’s not what i’d call a ‘feminist’ album, but i feel like she was already headed in that direction. 

so, honestly, i’m not at all surprised that this is where she’s ended up, and i’m totally excited for this next album!! i feel like she’s really coming into her own and figuring stuff out, and i can’t wait to see some of those messages in her new songs :)))) she’s got such a huge audience, and she’s such an influence on girls around the world, i think that her spreading this stuff is an amazing thing.

You didn’t socialize me properly. You made me a mama’s girl. Why don’t I hate you? Why don’t I want to be away from you? It’s going to be very hard to be Christiane Amanpour broadcasting live from a foxhole in Tehran with my mommy. I guess you’re just gonna have to learn how to operate a camera ‘cause I’ll need you there with me.

Hey! So, Coming Out Day is coming up soon (Oct. 11) and I just want to post a very stern reminder to NOT out anyone without their explicit permission.

Do NOT out anyone.

Got it?

Okay.

this is also a less important point, but still worth noting: DO NOT “come out” as an ally. don’t you dare.

so, it’s a show? it’s a lifestyle. it’s a religion.

You know that really epic long post you made answering an anon who asked if Tom and Nicole get along in rl? Could you do an updated one? There have been so many new interviews with shippy stuff, it could be a part 2. THANKS!

alright…part 2. sorry it took me like 8 years to answer

"I rented a cottage, a little house […] with a garden. I messed around in the garden and I hung out with guys like Orlando and Tom. We just made it as home-ish as I could.”imageimage

"I’m very lucky. I get to work with Nicole all the time."image

"At San Diego Comic-Con in July, [executive producer Alex Kurtzman] and Bob [Orci] were on the panel, and then some weird British guy—me—and the beautiful Nicole.

"She does sing. She has the most incredible voice."imageimage

Tom Mison is a sexy [motherfucker]. He’s cute, right? He’s a cute guy.

"Mondays are pretty crazy for us, but it’s the first day, so we start pretty early in the morning. So we get out in time and Tom and I are always like, “Are you going to watch the show? Oh, I don’t know.” And the next thing you know we’re texting each other. “Did you hear the music? What happened? Why did they edit it like that? What’s going on?”

It really helps having an actor who becomes a friend over the last year, because then we get to hang out and play together, and that makes it so much easier." (Tom)

*touches nicole for no reason*image ”One of the things I like that we can do is, we’ll have this personal moment. Then suddenly I’ll start doing a vocal warm-up and Tom will start. We just kind of synchronize sometimes. We’ll start with hmmm hm hmmmm lalalala babababa *Tom goes hmmm hm hmmm* and then we’ll do push-ups. […] We’re very different people but we tune in every now and then, it’s pretty cool.image

"Do you have a favorite ‘Ichabod meets someone from the 21st century moment’?"  Tom: I think Yolanda, the OnStar Lady, that was a fun one…
