The trend of labeling women “crazy” is part of the culture that socializes women to go along to get along. When women are told over and over again that they’re not allowed to feel the way they feel and that they’re being “unreasonable” or “oversensitive”, they’re conditioned to not trust their own emotions. Their behavior – being assertive, even demanding or standing up for how they feel – becomes an “inconvenience” to men and they’re taught not to give offense and to consider the feelings of others before their own.

Oh my gosh, this makes me so happy, you guys, you don’t even know. Voice-of-experience Emma Frost moving past her feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt in order to mentor a young and impressionable, era-displaced Jean Grey is everything I want in life. In fact, can I just have a miniseries that’s all about Emma and Jean going on a roadtrip European grand tour (this is Emma we are talking about here) together to fight all the baddies, diss all the dudebros, share all the gossip, and enjoy all the spa treatments? Can I have that please? Pretty, pretty please?

Seriously, Santa​, I have been SO GOOD this year.

In general, I think we need to move away from the premise that being a good person is a fixed immutable characteristic and shift towards seeing being good as a practice. And it is a practice that we carry out by engaging with our imperfections. We need to shift towards thinking that being a good person is like being a clean person. Being a clean person is something you maintain and work on every day. We don’t assume ‘I am a clean person therefore I don’t need to brush my teeth.’ When someone suggests to us that we have something stuck in our teeth we don’t say to them ‘What do you mean I have something stuck in my teeth—but I’m a clean person?!’
