I really need to read/watch the Discworld stuff.
Discworld is a lot more important than people give it credit.
I keep saying it, and I’m gonna KEEP saying it
This is one of my favorite exchanges in all of Pratchett’s works, and that’s saying something.
Seriously. Read Discworld.
The Death novels are great for this sort of stuff. I love all of them.
"What can the harvest hope for, if not the care of the Reaper Man?"
But this is wrong. Just because something is abstract doesn’t mean it’s not real. Take the world and grind it into a fine powder. Can you find an atom of redness? No. An apple an be red, but redness is an abstraction. How about tennis? A game of tennis is a concrete object, but tennis, the concept, can’t be found in the universe. However, I doubt you would say tennis doesn’t exist. The number five doesn’t have a physical form. Sure you can have five apples, but you can’t hold the number five.
Just because something only exists in our minds doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
But being said, I love Discworld and you should totally read it.
Fuck Victim Blaming
A lot of people talk about how it’s not your fault if you’re sexually assaulted, raped, sexually abused, etc. That’s definitely true. It’s not your fault!
Neither is anything that happens to the perpetrator. I recently reported my father for sexually abusing me as a kid. My family was furious to me. They told my father was arrested because I reported him. But that’s victim blaming too. It’s not true. He was arrested because he committed a crime.
It’s not your fault if your rapist goes to prison. Your rapist will go to prison because he CHOSE to rape. It’s his fault.
