I think the disability discussion is very important and you made some great points! What also helps getting away from tropes and having a single characters represent the whole community is adding more disabled charactes so some have superpowers and some don't.

Yes, absolutely. I think that’s a great way to balance things out.

The best way to avoid tropes/clichés/stereotypes is to have more characters that share the characteristic in question so you don’t have a) token characters and b) single characters representing a whole community or spectrum that should be handled as such, communities and spectrum’s. 

Hello! Once you get this, you must say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and then send it to your ten of your favorite followers! :)

Bad Napoleonic/Regency dates! Because looking fly in your frock coat or empire waist gown doesn’t stop you from being a complete goober.

Get Yer Kicks by Marcus J. Ranum

 casual reminder that tom hiddleston looks really good on his knees 

Really good on his knees and respecting consent! (Context for this scene is both adorable and searingly hot because repressed semi-Victorians (1830s I think) can make even cleaning powdered sugar off a skirt something intensely sexual. Or maybe that’s the effect of Hiddleston on his knees. Either way. I LIKE THIS SCENE)

Like what mumblingsage said above—what this gifset is missing is the part after William looks up. Peggy looks down, smiles, and nods. Then, only after he has her explicit and enthusiastic consent, does he dare to brush crumbs off her skirt.

…I just really like Return to Cranford okay.

A high femme must do battle for any androsexual in peril from dragon or Frenchman.

The traditional age for taking up the sigil of gender anarchy and door-opening is seventeen, after four years of apprenticeship under a non-monogendered Master.

I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express. - Randall Munroe, XKCD

For further proof that things never change, I present an excerpt from Judith Flanders’ Inside the Victorian Home: A Portrait of Domestic Life in Victorian England

pg. 320-321:

Many of the middle classes were similarly against paying local taxes and rates: they felt that the working classes, who were contributing less, were receiving more than their fair share of the civic services provided. The middle classes also worried that their money was going to the “undeserving” rather than the “deserving” poor: a constant concern, although those who were undeserving were often simply those whom the more prosperous did not know. Men waited outside the main railway stations and followed carriages home, hoping after a run of several miles to earn sixpence or a shilling by helping to carry in trunks or other baggage. Gwen Raverat’s Aunt Etty “would never let [them] into the house; she had always engaged beforehand a most Respectable Person, the Square-keeper, to help the cab-driver to carry up the boxes. My father would put his head out of the cab-window, and tell the runners that they would not be needed; but they followed us all the same … Once one of them burst into tears, and my father, rather shamefacedly gave him a shilling after all. This was supposed to be very wrong—indiscriminate charity: helping those who begged, and not those who really needed help.”

I JUST DISCOVERED SCRIVENER IS A THING

WHY DIDN’T ANYONE TELL ME THIS WAS A THING

YOU KNOW, BEFORE I WROTE 73,000 WORDS THAT I WAS MAKING UP AS I WENT ALONG AND KEPT LOSING TRACK OF WHO WAS DOING WHAT AND HAD TO KEEP ALL MY NOTES AT THE BOTTOM OF A MASSIVE DOCUMENT THAT’S GETTING STEADILY OUT OF CONTROL

HOLY SHIT

I

I MIGHT ACTUALLY BE CRYING

I KNOW WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND

Wait this is only $38.25 for students?!?! I was expecting it to be hundreds of dollars.

This seems like a GODSEND for dissertation writing.

Wasn’t sure if it would be worth trying to do gay Victorians on this but the 30-day trial looks super tasty and that’d basically be like doing NaNoWriMo, right?

Queer subtext in media is nice and all, but have you considered:

  • Including actual queer characters instead of vague metaphors for queer characters.
