Credence follows a gay male couple preparing to sell their worldly possessions to fund their young daughter’s evacuation from Earth in the wake of violent storms predicted to decimate the planet. While they will likely save her life for the right price, they may need to sacrifice their own lives in the process… Read more and watch the trailer and a behind-the-scenes video.

I used to stack George R.R. Martin’s books, and I used to hate him because they were so big. I had to carry them down in boxes, and I used to think, “Who is this (jerk) who’s written this massive book?” - Kit Harington, while working in a bookstore

1. using a slur that actually causes some men to be killed

2. believing that men only care about getting laid

But feminists are the ones who hate men?

It says a lot about who they are that people such as these automatically default to the assumption men must only be supporting feminism solely as a ploy to seduce women into sex, especially when the messages are in support following the UCSB shooting.

It says a lot about who they are that they immediately relegate men who offer such support to a lesser, reviled status.

It says a lot about who they are that their first response is to shame and degrade men who try to support women.

Feminists don’t hate men. Men hate men, just like men hate women, feminist or otherwise.

  • Western Patriarchy: A woman wearing revealing clothing is just asking to be raped. If she hadn't worn that short skirt out in public, she wouldn't have been assaulted. It's her fault for dressing like a slut and then trusting men not to treat her like one.
  • Western Patriarchy: Women who wear religious head coverings and hide their skin in public are so oppressed! It's not like she's going to get raped just because a man sees her ankles or neck! Why don't those women stop covering their bodies and just learn to trust men?

Men still have trouble recognizing that a woman can be complex, can have ambition, good looks, sexuality, erudition and common sense. A woman can have all those facets, and yet men, in literature and in drama, seem to need to simplify women, to polarize us as either the whore or the angel. Natalie Dormer

One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. I wear colors that I really like, I wear makeup that makes me feel pretty, and it really helps. It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see. Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it.
