Um… Moriarty? Blood is a better conductor than skin, and you just bled all over the glass and the electrodes. You just made it easier to kill you. Then again, I think you had the cuffs off before they had a chance to hit the button, since they didn’t know you’d escaped. So you just managed a complicated way to almost die.

I’m seeing a trend of dismissing feminism by doing two things. First, they say that feminists don’t want equality, they want female superiority/don’t care about other equality issues. Second, when a feminist rebukes that, they tell her that she is really an egalitarian.
To the first thing, just because the movement’s name started out from the root ‘feminine’ does not mean that they want to overpower men or that they don’t care about other equality issues. Word meanings evolve over time. Terrific comes from a Latin word meaning ‘causing terror’, but today it is most often used to mean ‘great’.
And yes, people use the word ‘feminist’ to describe hateful people who promote misandry. The Westboro Baptist Church calls themselves Christian, but most accept them as an outlier, rather than representative of the whole group.
To the second, sure. Maybe feminists who believe in equal rights and status for everyone could be called egalitarian. But when have we had an egalitarian protest? When has an egalitarian group raised funds or stepped up to help people?
Search egalitarian. You get site after site listing the definition. The link to the news search comes up. It is filled with studies or articles that tend to actually say that an egalitarian approach is making things worse.
On the other hand, searching feminist leads to more. Yes, the definition is there. But so are advocacy websites and forums. The news includes people talking about the current issues.
So yes, maybe all feminists are egalitarians. But not all egalitarians are feminists. Feminism is the movement that will come and pick you up when you need help. It is a group you can reach out to. Egalitarianism is a way of thinking that sees inequalities and views them as bad. Feminism takes action to vocally oppose those inequalities.
Besides, you don’t get to choose what words a person uses to describe themselves. That’s not very egalitarian.

I hate how when a celebrity messes up, it becomes an ‘us vs them’ issue. It’s people who like the celeb vs people who were hurt, with those who fall into both categories torn between them.
If a celebrity says something hurtful, they aren’t necessarily a horrible person. However, that doesn’t mean that someone must be horrible all the time in order for someone to call them out on their hurtful actions or words.
You can like a person and still say that what they did or said was hurtful. Do you hate your friends for saying something hurtful? No. But you should still tell them that it was hurtful so they can learn. Even if they had a bad day, that doesn’t excuse them hurting you.
Same principle applies.
Also, death threats are never the answer. Not from either side.

If the Nematon is fucking with your head, maybe now isn’t the best time to be thinking about new romantic entanglements, huh Scott?

I don’t know if anyone have pointed this out yet, but the shirt Scott wears in the promo for 3x17..
..Looks a lot like the one Stiles will be wearing later this season, if you go by what we’ve seen from BTS. I would even dare to say it’s the same one, maybe?
And this is in Scott’s bedroom. Like, why would Stiles be in Scott’s bed wearing his clothes?
I don’t have any clever theories about this, maybe after being missing, Stiles shows up at Scott’s house without any clothes (now wouldn’t that be something). Thoughts anyone?
Or maybe, Scott finds Stiles, shaking, scared, and covered in blood (or other things, like dirt, but I’m going with blood in my mental image). Scott manages to coax Stiles into the house and up to his room. Scott gets him into the bathroom and cleaned up, then gives him some clothes to wear. Scott tries to get Stiles to talk, but all Stiles can do is tremble. So Scott just holds him until he relaxes enough to fall asleep. He goes downstairs to call the Sheriff and his mom. Then Stiles ends up having another screaming nightmare?
