” Egypt was – as it is now – a confluence of cultures, as a result of being a crossroads geographically between Africa, the Middle East and Europe. We cast major actors from different ethnicities to reflect this diversity of culture, from Iranians to Spaniards to Arabs. There are many different theories about the ethnicity of the Egyptian people, and we had a lot of discussions about how to best represent the culture. “
aka I’m fucking racist and don’t give a fuck
"I’m sure there are “many different theories about the ethnicity of Egyptian people.” I’ll bet few of the credible ones point to them looking like Christian Bale. Apparently Scott’s idea of “diversity” is casting Australian, American, and British white people."
I ended up having to go to Walmart with my mom when I was home visiting my parents.
We walked by a toothbrush display, and I was like, hey I could use a toothbrush, so grabbed the closest one to hand. I went to toss it into the cart, and my mom said:
"That’s a boy toothbrush"
I paused and looked at the toothbrush, expecting to find I had accidentally grabbed a child’s Hot Wheels brush or something. But no, it was an adult brush. A *gasp* blue brush.
"I don’t think toothbrushes are gender specific, mom."
"Why don’t you get a nice colour?"
"Blue is nice"
"You’ll get that one confused with your boyfriend’s"
"Boyfriend’s toothbrush is grey."
She then proceeded to make some feeble argument about the blue brush not MATCHING MY BATHROOM because apparently toothbrushes now have to be colour coordinated with your towels and bathmat.
This also applies to anxiety (which is often experienced together with depression).
I guess I have a bit of a problem with anything that treats people with mental illnesses as a singular unit who will all respond to things the same way, because these powerpoints always get my back up.
The things you can say are probably a good general guideline, but if you are dealing with people who react badly to any trace of condescension (like me) asking about feelings is only going to result in irritable friend.
People with depression are like any other people - some of us are very open people and some of us are very private. Having some one inquire with any depth about how I’m feeling feels like an invasion of privacy. Having someone ask if I’ve considered certain treatment options feels like an insult (e.g.You think I’m so stupid, it hasn’t occurred to me to try therapy/drugs/etc?)
Anyway just don’t expect the things you can say to work on everybody, we’re not bears. There isn’t some special non-threatening way to approach us. We’re people.
Basically the most important thing we can learn in life

I really wish all this ice bucket stuff would have generated at least some discussion of euthanasia/right to die. Because very often it is ALS people fighting for that right. Haven’t seen anything at all so far.
I kept getting hungry while watching Tokyo Ghoul.

petition for the next companion to be a grumpy chinese-american grandma who complains about plot-holes and knits the doctor horrific time-travel-themed sweaters to wear when she thinks it’s cold out (most of the time)
reblogging because this is the best idea ever
I was thinking of what it would take to get me interested in Doctor Who again.
This. This would get me interested.
