I went through all the episodes with the vision, and was again impressed at how well sown it was into the whole season, but what eventually struck me was how there were at least two different forms of the visions and then a different version for Ides of March. And that in turn made me wonder if their actions DID have tiny impacts on their future and maybe they could have done something to avoid it.
Or maybe every path led here.

The witch hunts of Europe were largely a process of undermining the authority and destroying the expertise, of European women. In 1511, the English Parliament passed an act directed against ‘common artificers, as smythes, weavers and women who attempt great cures and things of great difficulties: in the witch they partly use sorcerye and witch-craft’ (Shiva 1989). By the sixteenth century, women in Europe were totally excluded from the practice of medicine and healing because ‘wise women’ ran the risk of being declared witches.
— Vandana Shiva, “Women: The Custodians” (2004)
I recommend Witchcraze by Anne Barstow for history and analysis of witchhunts as genocide against women, and Witches, Midwives, and Nurses by Dierdre English and Barbara Ehrenreich for history of the progression of healing roles being stripped from women or devalued… I know there was another one I had and I’ll add it to the post if I remember it but those are both excellent sources.

What makes a man a good lover? Being gentle and kind?
You know why I love AUs? Because the whole point of them is that everything is changed, and yet these two people are still going to meet and fall in love- that they’re so set in stone and so meant to be that you can change literally everything in a hundred universes and they’ll fall in love over and over again.
it makes me laugh when nerds accuse game developers of “pandering to sjws / feminists” because like oh no making games with in-depth characters or women who actually wear clothes is bad pandering but releasing game after game of wobbly titties and machismo violence is completely valid pandering okay
Anita Sarkeesian, whose excellent Tropes vs Women in Video Games series is an important contribution to the discussion of gender and games, has been driven from her home by enraged male gamers whose stalking, and explicit, credible threats of sexual violence against her and her family convinced her to go into hiding.
In so doing, these men have ably demonstrated the point Sarkeesian sought to make all along: that gaming is riddled with misogynistic violence, and that this violence reflects a real-world misogyny rampant within the gaming world.
