This could cause injuries and broken props. So just don’t.

I actually have a story about this, right now I am working backstage for Noises Off at my local community theatre and we have the six notorious plates of sardines, well the five notorious plates of sardines now. In the second act when most of the actors are behind the set where on one can see them, one of them liked to throw the plates of sardines in the air because he was BORED. He THREW PROPS, because he didn’t have any patience. One night, when everything else that could go wrong was going wrong, he threw a plate too far away and he couldn’t catch it in time so it broke……..Those were the last plates of their kind in the town. Needless to say, he got a SEVERE talking to from our stage manager and the woman who was playing Dotty told him she would physically assault him if he even breathed on the plates of sardines. For the next couple nights I would go “Don’t you touch those plates,” as I walked past him on my way to SR.

Reblogging for the hilarious story.

I was in a show once that used a (weed) pipe onstage, and the actor who it was assigned to broke three of them over the course of the run. THREE.

i would give my left kidney for asexual taystee jefferson.

she’s an extrovert who cares more about her family in all its forms than she is in dating.

none of her flashbacks or current prison drama revolve around fucking.

when poussey kisses her she says she’s “not like that” but cuddling is fine and she obviously enjoys that - why is everyone assuming she means she’s straight?

when she yells at p in the library she never says the issue is that she liked her, it’s that she liked her “like that” and “wanted her to take off her clothes and shit” - those are not the words of someone uncomfortable with a lesbian. those are the words of someone uncomfortable with sex.

she jokes about sex but it’s /always/ a joke. “a nubian king with a nubian thing”? come on. she uses it like a punchline. she uses it like an ace.

can you imagine? if any show were to have some ace representation, i could see it being orange is the new black. and can you imagine it being TAYSTEE? the fan favorite, loud and happy and dancing - sings like an angel, stings like a bee - can you imagine? taystee saying, “no, i’m asexual. not like a fucking plant, like a person. i just don’t like it.” can you IMAGINE? allosexual people being forced to see an ace character who wasn’t a novelty or a joke or treated like it was a disorder? can you imagine allosexual people actually /hearing/ the word asexual on one of the most popular tv shows that exists right now? can you even imagine?

I’m here for this.

Let children read whatever they want and then talk about it with them. If parents and kids can talk together, we won’t have as much censorship because we won’t have as much fear.

Saw this on my dash just as I finished formatting a teacher’s companion for this year’s CBLDF Liberty Annual and, yeah, I agree with this.

PREACH it, Judy.
