“ Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength. ”

“ Love is madness,” I say. “Doesn’t everyone agree that you’d do anything, endure anything, to be with the ones you love? So either you’re willing to let them use you with any sort of cruelty, so long as they keep you— which makes you a fool— or you’re willing to commit any cruelty, so long as you get to keep them— which makes you a monster. Either way, it’s madness. ”

Arcade Fire – “We Exist” Video (Feat. Andrew Garfield)

Arcade Fire’s “We Exist” is the Reflektor song about a song telling his father that he’s gay, and a few weeks ago, the band posted a teaser for its music video. That teaser featured Andrew Garfield, currently playing Spider-Man in every multiplex in America, dressed in drag during Arcade Fire’s Coachella set. As it turns out, that Coachella scene is the glammed-out climax of the video, which starts out with Garfield trying to find ways to change gender identity in a repressive redneck town. Things go from hate-crime seriousness to fantastical hallucination really quickly, and Garfield absolutely commits to the role, taking it to holy-shit levels. The video is an effective piece of work, and you can watch it above.
