The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”
"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.
Holy shit I started a tumblr!
Hi, I'm nineteen, female, an aspiring haberdasher, writer, and artist, as well as a horror movie, gothic lolita, tombstone and creepy doll enthusiast. You will see things here relating to those topics. And cats, I seem to post lots of cat pictures. I may upload my own art, as well the things I make. And may one day even get some links to that Etsy shop I've been meaning to start, or my Zazzle account, which contains a fat lot of nothing.
