“‘It is, it’s one of the greatest parts you’ll ever play as an actress. Except it’s the reverse of Hamlet because he spends three hours worrying and does nothing, whereas Medea takes an hour and 15, massacres the whole fucking stage and walks off. But it’s great because she uses every shred of femininity that she has to do it, and she also has the complexity of guilt.’”
— Helen McCrory, answering the question “Is Medea a bit like a female Hamlet?” (via notabuddhist)

Homophonophobia, from Magic Coffee Hair.
Another linguistic faux-phobia, which can be found on a variety of t-shirts, is “Polyamory is wrong! It should be multiamory or polyphilia, but combining Greek and Latin roots is just wrong!”
For reference, there are actually many well-established macaronic or hybrid words in English, including monolingual, automobile, neuroscience, and television.
Homophonophobia was funnier when it wasn’t an actual news story.

“During the packed panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the Saga writer noted that while today, Joss Whedon and George R.R. Martin are considered cultural monsters for killing off beloved characters, death used to be a more common feature of popular fiction. One problem, he believes, is that too many characters live in the hands of corporations and are therefore considered too precious to kill. Vaughn feels that takes away one of the things that makes fiction so valuable.”

So what if he’s older? He’s funny, considerate, honest, smart, caring, passionate and so much more, and we all know those traits are so much more essential in any relationship than simply the year he was born or his profession. Love knows no age, or any boundaries at all.
