Okay so the Colbert Report posted a link to the Ellen Page interview, right
And I was already happy it was a fan favorite. But THE COMMENTS
IT’S JUST TOO GREAT
ADAM AND EVE NOT ADAM AND MAPLE LEAF
Mostly XMFC and NBC's Hannibal/Mads Mikkelsen appreciation
with brief forays into the uncharted wilds of multi-fandom.
Occasionally, I have opinions about stuff.
If you're still with me, you will have noticed that I have
a truly unhealthy love for "Texts from Last Night".

Which is your favorite?
My favourite is Pointing Out the Obvious:
"Wow, your life sucks!"
Yeah, thanks for reminding me. I needed that.
Jag gick i ett kvarter idag
Som en gång var min hela värld, ja.
Allting var ju enklare då,
Men ingenting kan bli var det var, nej.
can this be shown like at the beginning and ending of commercial breaks or something? just, often and endlessly repeated.
I can’t stress how important this is and how religions or ideas should not justify taking away basic human rights
Yeah, I was right with you up until “Islamophobia is not racism”. On the face of it, that is true, because Islam is not a race. It is a religion that is practised by people of all races. However, it is disingenuous to suggest that “Islamophobia” - defined as discrimination not against Islam, but against Muslims (who are often people of colour, in any case) - does not infringe on their basic human rights. Not when Muslims are abused, profiled, and subject to institutionalized discrimination simply because of their religious - and, yes, often racial - background. An idea may not have rights, but the individuals who hold those beliefs do.
