I was in my thirties when I figured that one out, and wrote CORALINE mostly to tell it to my daughters. I’m glad that it’s spread across the world. I’m glad it made your life better.
After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”
The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.
BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?
BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?
The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.
This. Is. Not. OK.
This is terrifying
Ok, I just started contemplating Hufflepuff/Slytherin friendships and it’s made me sad.

I've read that ask you got before about Coraline, and just really wanted to tell you that ever since I read it (when I was 12 - 5 years ago) I don't think I became brave, but I think I understood I already was brave. You see, ever since, every time I get afraid (aka anxiety hits) I remember Coraline, and I remember that time when she said "when you're scared but you still do it anyway, that's brave." So thank you, Mr. Gaiman. That was one of the most wonderful gifts I've ever received.
