and let’s not pretend the lack of respect so many people have for musicals and how large the female and queer fanbase for musicals are is merely a coincidence

Important Eclipse PSA
many people know that it is very dangerous to look directly at a solar eclipse, but fewer people realize that it is just as dangerous to stare at an eclipse of the moon! When the moon is eclipsed you will watch your guidepost vanish, removing your only point of reference in the infinity of space. Without that anchor in the universal night there will be nothing between you and the endless depths of space, and in that moment you will understand that there are only incomparably tiny and distant oases in the unimaginable infinity of the cosmos. We are not protected nor are we plentiful; our home is 10^27 kilograms out of the entirety of endless space. We are a temporary tribe, a mingy clan of hominids clutching to that minuscule rock which we call home. When you look out into the universe and only the smallest twinkling of tiny stars looks back, you will once and forever understand that We Are All Agency — all actions, thoughts and motives belonged to people just like you with childhoods and friends and worries and anxieties and memories bound up in a couple hundred cubic centimeters of flesh and water in a portion of the universe so insignificantly small it might just as well never have existed. If you look out too long into that unfathomable darkness, you will understand that human life is here, and only here, that this impossibly limited region in space’s gross expanse is the only human home, and you will realize that every human killed was a being so rare that in 100,000,000 galaxies you would never find another. Do not stare too long at the eclipse. Once you have watched the vastness and the emptiness of space you will never again be callous about the tremendous fullness of your home
