science fiction was invented by a woman
don’t you ever fucking forget that
in mary shelley we trust
Mary Shelley didn’t write the first science fiction story.
But Frankenstein is considered the first science fiction novel.
No. Frankenstein is considered the first science fiction novel written by a woman.
Frankenstein was published in 1818. There were several other scifi novels before that.
Then there is True History(Story), which was written in the 2nd century.
Mary Shelley wrote amazing science fiction, and remains one of my favorite scifi authors to date. She did many amazing things for the scifi genre, but she was not the first scifi novelist.
I wish it were true that she was the first, but she is not.
We should be celebrating the accomplishments she did make, not making up facts just because we want them to be true.

The war against racism will be a hard one, and white allies, real white allies, used to be willing to get attacked by the dogs, beaten up, and even lose their lives for the sake of equality. Now you’re gonna tell me that in 2013 I’m supposed to coddle a white ally who can’t even deal with me expression my disgust for his brothers and sisters do? Fuck outta here. No weak allies. If you can’t handle a couple of sassy black folks on a blog, you’re not equipped with the ovaries of steel required to fight against racism.
