"Man liekas , ka ziloņi ir ļoti gudri zvēri un atceras pāri nodarījumus, nez vai viņi tad darītu arēnā, ko ar tiem sarunajuši mākslinieki. Vai Jums nav ienācis prātā, ka viņiem tas varētu patikt,jo ir zvaigznes, kas tiek aprupēti, un ārstēti no iegūtām morālām un fiziskām traunam, kas iegūtas brīvībā."

"Four Swedish film organizations are banding together to fight sexism by applying a letter-grade rating to new releases, the Independent reports. That’s awesome news in and of itself, but the idea is even cooler because it’s based on criteria that come from a comic strip by cartoonist Alison Bechdel.

The beloved (at least in indie comics circles) rule is known as the Bechdel test, and it goes as follows: the movie must have at least two women in it, and those two women must talk to each other about something other than a man."

"(..)Visi pārējie veidojumi ir un paliks tikai veidojumi. Mēs nevaram šos veidojumus saukt par ģimenēm, jo ģimene nevar būt bez pretēja dzimuma pārstāvja līdzdalības. Kā „skaļais klusums”, tā arī „viendzimuma ģimene” vai „viendzimuma laulība” – ir oksimorons, t.i., pretējo vārdu savienojums – lieta, kas vienkārši nepastāv un nevar pastāvēt.(..)"

"(..)Paldies par asu viedokļu apmaiņu politika.lv diskusijā ar LGBT. Diskusija apliecināja, ka, diemžēl, ar LGBT cilvēkiem normāla, kultūras rāmjos paliekoša diskusija nav iespējama. Esmu pateicīga par šīm ugunskristībām, jo diskusija ir vairojusi un stiprinājusi manu pārliecību, ka ģimene ir īpaši sargājama un projekts „PAR ģimeni” ir ārkārtīgi nepieciešams.(..)"

(Btw, diskusiju finansē ne tikai Eiropas Padomes LGBT projekts, kā tur rakstīts, bet arī Rīgas Dome)

Pieminētā diskusija:

("Diskusija: Nereģistrētas attiecības -- vai tā ir ģimene?"
Sarunā piedalās juriste Kristīne Dupate, sociālantropologs Klāvs Sedlenieks, resursu centra sievietēm „Marta" vadītāja Iluta Lāce, Marta Garsele un kustības „Par ģimeni" iniciatore Ieva Brante. Diskusiju vada PROVIDUS pētniece Linda Curika.)

"Sherlock Holmes gets to be brilliant, solitary, abrasive, Bohemian, whimsical, brave, sad, manipulative, neurotic, vain, untidy, fastidious, artistic, courteous, rude, a polymath genius. Female characters get to be Strong."
(..)
"What do I want instead of a Strong Female Character? I want a male:female character ratio of 1:1 instead of 3:1 on our screens. I want a wealth of complex female protagonists who can be either strong or weak or both or neither, because they are more than strength or weakness. Badass gunslingers and martial artists sure, but also interesting women who are shy and quiet and do, sometimes, put up with others’ shit because in real life there’s often no practical alternative. And besides heroines, I want to see women in as many and varied secondary and character roles as men: female sidekicks, mentors, comic relief, rivals, villains. I want not to be asked, when I try to sell a book about two girls, two boys and a genderless robot, if we couldn’t change one of those girls to a boy."

"Patiesībā vislabāk būtu, ja katrs runātu tikai to, ko tik tiešām zina (to attiecinu arī uz sevi), taču tad mēs, iespējams, dzīvotu neizturamā klusumā."

"Have you seen non-sexualized photos of normal breasts?
A huge proportion of American women are not happy with their breasts. The media images make them believe the ideal is big and perky breasts with a small nipple and areola.
But, in reality female breasts come in all kinds of sizes and shapes. These breast pictures are here to let you see normal breasts - big, small, sagging, asymmetrical; big areolas or nipples."

tas, protams, ir brīnišķīgi, ka jūs viens otram "pilnībā uzticaties", ka jums "nav nekā slēpjama" savos telefonos, cibās, skaipos u.t.t., ļoti apsveicami.
bet vai ir tik grūti saprast, ka cilvēks, kas tev raksta telefonos, skaipos un citur, runā ar tevi, nevis ar tavu "otro pusīti", kas lasa pār plecu, komentē, tavā prombūtnē atbild tavā vietā u.t.t.?
