So I went zip-lining with my mom today...
- Guide: So it's best to jump off the platform for this line. It's a little lower than the others and if you just step off then you'll probably flip over.
- Me: This harness makes me feel like I'm in the Survey Corps
- Mom: Megan no.
- Guide: Who wants to go first?
- Me: *raises hand*
- Guide: *attaches harness to zip-line*
- Me: *Runs to edge of platform*
- Me: *shrieks* SIE SIND DAS ESSEN UND WIR SIND DIE JAGER
- Me: *leaps off platform*
- Me: *AoT/SnK salute*
- Mom: *facepalm*
By far the stupidest criticism of the new Thor is ‘no where in Norse mythology is Thor a woman, stop messing with mythology.’
Right, because Norse mythology is just fucking filled with stories about Thor hanging out with Iron Man and Captain America at the Avengers Tower.
seriously though, give me science fiction where disabled people exist, and are even more visible than they are today, because technology has created wonderful new accommodations to improve disabled people’s quality of life and make social interaction more accessible
give me science fiction where technology has gone into things other than guns, spaceships, robotics, and bionics for able-bodied people
In the ship who sings by Anne McCaffry they take people who have a certain level of physical disability and give them the opportunity to have themselves inserted as the captain of a space ship. As in they are integrated into the space ship as a prosthesis. The ships are called “Talking ships” Because to outside viewers it seems like the ship is sentient. But instead it is a person who’s human body was not up to the task so they decided “Well… if i can’t walk I’m going to get a space ship body and fly.”
Of course it isn’t perfect and once integrated into the space ship that is it you are kind of stuck which makes human interactions and relationships pretty difficult. But it is an interesting concept and the ethics behind it are something to debate.
