Victims of Distorted Thinking
sad lonely empty
Jul 21

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
“Forward, the Light Brigade!
“Charge for the guns!” he said:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

"Forward, the Light Brigade!"
Was there a man dismay’d?
Not tho’ the soldier knew
Someone had blunder’d:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
Volley’d and thunder’d;
Storm’d at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
Rode the six hundred.

Flash’d all their sabres bare,
Flash’d as they turn’d in air,
Sabring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
All the world wonder’d:
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right thro’ the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reel’d from the sabre stroke
Shatter’d and sunder’d.
Then they rode back, but not
Not the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
Volley’d and thunder’d;
Storm’d at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came thro’ the jaws of Death
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of six hundred.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honour the charge they made,
Honour the Light Brigade,
Noble six hundred.

“For years mental health professionals taught people that they could be psychologically healthy without social support, that “unless you love yourself, no one else will love you.”…The truth is, you cannot love yourself unless you have been loved and are loved. The capacity to love cannot be built in isolation.” Bruce D. Perry, M.D., Ph.D. — “The Boy Who Was Raised As A Dog” (via kiddoliddo)

I got unfollowed by two people who I previously liked very much because I dared criticize Joss Whedon and express reservations about how he’s going to handle Avengers 2.

If I unfollowed everyone who had a different opinion from mine, I wouldn’t be following anyone. Sorry to put a pinprick in your idea that Whedon is a wonderful progressive genius who is going to save us all.

Good riddance. There’s the door; don’t let it hit you in the ass on your way out.

I don’t understand this whole Joss Whedon worship thing.  I loved Buffy in her high school years, began to scratch my head when she went to college, watched Angel because, well, it was there and I loved Lorne and Christian Kane.  I loved Firefly until I started to think about it and certain language darts stuck in my skin, and other people said things that made me think (I try not to think about my junk entertainment, or pretty soon, I’ll have no entertainment left).  Dollhouse made me very unhappy.  Very.  He promised no fallback to prostitution, and he fell back to prostitution, also rape and battery.  I bailed.  I watched Dr. Horrible for the fellows, couldn’t help but noticed my beloved Felicia Day was wispy and fridged.

And yes, the broken women speech was wonderful.  Women also make great speeches about women all of the time.  We can save ourselves, thank you very much. 

Whedon is no longer a name that automatically puts my hand on the remote or in the theater.  And if people unfriend you because you’re honest about what you think, then they’ve kinda missed the point of knowing your own mind.  We aren’t supposed to be drones as feminists.  We’re not supposed to be pre-teens squealing over the newest hot guy.
