HBO: In a previous episode, Oberyn is writing a poem for his daughter. Have you thought through his life in Dorne?

Pedro Pascal: I see him as an extremely contemporary, progressive and loving father. I think it’s so suitable that he had nothing but daughters to raise. He doesn’t shape ideas based on old conventions so his daughters are not limited by backwards, medieval morality.

HBO: He’s very emotionally intelligent.

Pedro Pascal: I think there’s a depth in the way that Oberyn perceives the world and the way he lives in it. I think there’s a lot of woman inside of Oberyn, which attributes to his strength.

HBO: Can you explain what you mean by “a lot of woman”?

Pedro Pascal: Perceptiveness. Intelligence. In the world of ‘Game of Thrones,’ which can harshly reflect some of the darker elements of our reality, I would argue that women are often forced to be smarter and more in touch with themselves because their circumstances are so ruled by men. Women’s survival skills kick in a bit earlier.

HBO: Would you say that Oberyn is a feminist?

Pedro Pascal: Absolutely. Without choosing to be. It’s just intrinsic and logical to him. Ellaria Sand is the love of his life because she is his equal, if not his superior, in certain ways. That’s part of what makes him such a fierce man because he knows who to take his lead from.

HBO: How do you hope that fans remember Oberyn?

Pedro Pascal: As a lover and a fighter. As a fun character who ushered in something new to King’s Landing and stirred some sh*t up: Big in, big out.

HBO: Fans are bound to be brokenhearted.

Pedro Pascal: As am I. As I have been all along.

How to catch an emu - Video

LET ME TELL YOU A THING

THIS IS A LEGIT THING

THIS IS LITERALLY WHAT PEOPLE DO TO GET EMUS TO COME CLOSE

Apparently you lie on the ground on your back and move your arms and legs.

And the emus are very curious and come over like, “The fuck is that.”

And that’s literally what it is. They come over wondering what the fuck you’re doing

This might be my favorite piece of information I have ever learned.

I am writing to you from Gaza The eid came to the muslims around the world; it came to make people happy and draw a smile on children’s faces
The eid went in the streets of Gaza, one after another, the children have disappeared, the Eid started shouting for the children between the rubble and the destruction to wake up, Ramadan is over and now its the time to wear the new clothes and buy the toys, its time for the sweets, for the playing and for the fun..
The eid found the children with burnt clothes, with cut body parts, with destroyed houses, with depressed images, with torn apart toys, with hurt feelings..
The eid cried and left..
The eid called his worse enemy “Mourning” and told him to go to Gaza..
Mourning will be tomorrow in Gaza

I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again - 

Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone. 

Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time. 

And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office. 

Reblogging hard for that last comment.

I WANTED TO SAY THIS BUT THEN SOMEONE ELSE DID and I’m damn proud.

GLORIOUS
