Dead Poets Society [Peter Weir, 1989]
RIP to one of my favorites. Robin Williams was pronounced dead today at the age of 63. Still in shock.
I have multiple friends and acquaintances that have begun to transition (mostly mtf) and others who are coming out of the closet. I listen to their struggles and victories. The internet has its own formed opinions including massive support towards the LGBT community as a whole and the large…
This is from my other blog, All’s Faire in Love and Geekery.

Supposedly invented by the Chinese, there is an ancient form of torture that is nothing more than cold, tiny drops falling upon a person’s forehead.
On its own, a single drop is nothing. It falls upon the brow making a tiny splash. It doesn’t hurt. No real harm comes from it.
In multitudes, the drops are still fairly harmless. Other than a damp forehead, there really is no cause for concern.
The key to the torture is being restrained. You cannot move. You must feel each drop. You have lost all control over stopping these drops of water from splashing on your forehead.
It still doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But person after person, time and time again—would completely unravel psychologically. They all had a breaking point where each drop turned into a horror. Building and building until all sense of sanity was completely lost.
"It was just a joke, quite being so sensitive."
"They used the wrong pronoun, big deal."
"So your parents don’t understand, it could be worse."
Day after day. Drop after drop. It builds up. A single instance on its own is no big deal. A few drops, not a problem. But when you are restrained, when you cannot escape the drops, when it is unending—these drops can be agony.
People aren’t sensitive because they can’t take a joke. Because they can’t take being misgendered one time. Because they lack a thick skin.
People are sensitive because the drops are unending and they have no escape from them.
You are only seeing the tiny, harmless, single drop hitting these so-called “sensitive” people. You are failing to see the thousands of drops endured before that. You are failing to see the restraints that make them inescapable.
Another, other, other reminder that thefrogman is a pretty great ally.
Holy shit this breakdown is brilliant.
This is why I like asking their preferred pronouns. I have seen so many faces light up when I ask.
