I did go to school for Marine Biology, but the cool thing is… the greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing a [water] character. And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives.
My family are some of the greatest water men on earth. I’m not, but I’m going to go train with them. But it’s really an honor just being a Polynesian. And water is the most important thing in this world and we all know it. It’s cool be a part of DC’s universe.

let’s all take a minute to stop and think about how Hagrid gave Harry his homemade birthday cake, told him how much he looked like his parents, and fed him sausages before he even started to explain that he was a wizard
let’s stop to think about how his absolute first priority was to let harry know that he was loved and cared for

Men who feel outcast by “Alpha Male” culture often end up replicating the same limiting, awful hierarchy in new places. # GamerGate.
These men gravitate towards subcultures after being left cold by the dominant macho one, yet rather than reject hyper-masculinity, they mirror it.
Yet it’s actually the same hatred of women - fear of the ‘feminine’ - at the root o the macho culture that rejected them too. # GamerGate
If you’re genuinely looking for spaces where you can escape the dominant, oppressive, expectations of masculinity - look into feminism.]
Wish I would’ve gotten to this sooner since it’s late to be posting, but I really love this particular message and the discussion around “being a man” and how it relates to the treatment of women as well as gay men (or anyone else perceived as “less” / equivocated with being undesirably weak)

Ocean Atlas. Huge Underwater Sculpture in Nassua, Bahamas
Installed at the beginning of October, Ocean Atlas is the latest underwater sculpture by Jason deCaires Taylor. It depicts a young local Bahamian girl holding up the ceiling of the ocean. During low tide, the water will reflect a mirror image of the sculpture on the underside of the sea’s surface.
