AFAB demi-femme. Currently still figuring out the whole pronoun-thing. She/her, they/them, ze/zir, and dae/daem are all acceptable for now. Basically anything but he/him and it.

Molest me not with this pocket-calculator stuff.

Deep Thought, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Fit the Fourth, by Douglas Adams

"The answer to what?"

"Life!" "The Universe!" "Everything!"

sexhaver:

"FUCK lighthouses"

Sometimes it’s the stigma.

Sometimes it’s a desire to keep others from interfering.

Sometimes it is how we try to take care of others and they never even know we are.

What I need is a strong drink and a peer group.

You guys.
Steve Rogers doesn’t know about Luke’s dad.
…What did that Avengers Tower movie night look like?

"Okay, I’ve got historical events and music so far. What movies do I need to see?" Steve asks, breaking out his notebook.
“Some Like It Hot,” Bruce says immediately.
“Robin Hood,” Clint puts in, to no one’s surprise.
Steve smiles. “Errol Flynn?”
“Men in Tights.”
"…Okay."
Natasha looks up from where she’s curled in an armchair. “The Sound of Music?”
Clint snorts. “I think he might object to the singing Nazis, Nat.”
Steve just raises an eyebrow. “Singing Nazis?” That one goes on the list.
"Ooh, in that case, Pearl Harbor,” Tony says.
A chorus of groans and protests meet his statement.
"What? I kind of want to see his head explode."
Steve does not put that one on the list. “Anything else?”
“Star Wars,” Darcy says, without looking up from her phone.
The room goes silent. Everyone stops and stares at her like they’ve forgotten she stuck around after Jane went back to New Mexico. Which they probably have.
"What?"
"Darce, you’re a genius,” Clint breathes.
Bruce actually smiles. “We are in the presence of the last unspoiled adult in the entire country.”
Tony’s eyes light up. “Oh my god, he doesn’t know that Vader is—”
Natasha has him in a choke-hold before anyone realizes she’s moving. “Not another syllable.”
Tony raises his hands in surrender, and Natasha loosens her hold. “What the hell was that about?” he wheezes.
She nods towards Bruce, who is looking somewhat green around the gills.
"Spoilers make him angry."

I’m not a misandrist, but MRAs are all slacktivists. If you really want to change things, get out of the house! Found a shelter for male victims of abuse and rape! Rally for a change in military conscription! Don’t just sit on your ass posting on reddit, because you’re not going to accomplish anything.

fashiondisastercecil:

i always laugh so hard at those night vale fans who complain about “SJWs ruining it” as if joseph fink and jeffrey cranor aren’t the two biggest ~social justice warriors out there to the point where they’ve recast carlos just to make sure he’s actually played by man of colour

Please tag your Snk, Snk is an alright series but it makes me really uncomfortable because its creator is a war crime apologist and has trivialized the murder of millions of Koreans, Chinese, Indonesians, Filipinos, Vietnamese etc and it’s really disturbing to see literally every day how the Snk fandom does not care and is pretending nothing is wrong with that

Some sources!

Also I’d like to apologize for generalizing the Snk fandom; I did not intend for this post to gain attention or become a hub for information and therefore let my emotions get a little ahead of me, and it seems that the biggest problem is that most people do not know anything about this

I’m reblogging this again because after reading up on these links, I’m pretty overwhelmed. I know just about everyone I follow posts Snk and loves it, but personally I really can’t be a part of the fandom anymore.

I know, for me, my beliefs and biases bleed into my stories and reflect my heart. I find my own work so close to who I am that I really can’t accept this kind of behavior and racism from an author I previously supported.

Plus Mikasa’s character, one of my favorites, is pretty ruined for me. Being named after a battleship that had control over Korea, her story seems disgustingly contrived, given that she is almost sold into sex slavery as a child and THAT is precisely some of the war crimes committed by Japan to Korean women. In essence, Isayama respects and admires war crimes and believes Koreans should be thankful to Japan for colonizing them. 

That’s fucked up, dude.

I would appreciate if people tagged their Snk, too. Thanks guys.

that times article about jenny mccarthy is cool, but then they mock the idea that a gluten-free diet can affect autism.

like, i appreciate that they’re trying to disabuse people of the notion that eating healthy will fix everything, but i had a friend with gluten-sensitive autism so stfu, obviously it works for some people.

go read the article anyway, though.

LAUREN, I KNOW AT TIMES MY ACTIONS CAN BE DIFFICULT FOR YOU, BUT I HAVE NEVER ASKED YOU TO UNDERSTAND MY PASSION FOR SCIENCE. I HAVE ONLY ASKED THAT YOU LOVE ME, AS I SO DEARLY LOVE YOU.

OR SCIENCE. 

AS MUCH AS I LOVE EITHER YOU OR SCIENCE.
