twinkleofafadingstar:

so Charlotte Bronte read Emma by Jane Austen and was really interested in this minor character named Jane Fairfax who was poor and would have been a governess had she not married well and then Bronte wrote her own novel exploring the plight of the poor governess who married this guy named Edward Fairfax Rochester in a novel called Jane Eyre and my point is don’t let anyone tell you shit about fanfiction.

I think we can all look forward to the time when these three theories are given equal time in our science classrooms across the country, and eventually the world; one third time for Intelligent Design, one third time for Flying Spaghetti Monsterism, and one third time for logical conjecture based on overwhelming observable evidence.

That time Peter Parker was trained by Natasha Romanoff. 

It’s a spider thing

It’s a spider thing

Don’t you love how Peter can do it with his calves but Natasha has to use her inner thighs. This whole equality thing is great.

Thighs are stronger than calves, and you can get a tighter grip, as well as have a higher chance of breaking things. Peter was intending to disarm, Natasha was ready to kill. Natasha is a trained assassin, and Peter is a student who works for a newspaper.
Given their backgrounds and experiences, it would be UNequal to have Peter using skills and disarming tactics that Natasha was trained to do so.

So yes, this whole equality thing is great.

ok y’all 

how do i ask a boy out 

roses are red
violets are blue
guess what, my bed
has room for two

OH MY GOD NO

twinkle twinkle little star
we can do it in a car

STOP IT

row, row, row your boat
gently down the stream
merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
i can make you scream

I feel like the last one is verging dangerously into serial killer territory

Sexist Critics Dismiss Justice Sotomayor's Impassioned Affirmative Action Dissent as 'Emotional'

An editorial in the National Review — where no one apparently wanted to attach their name to the piece — mocked Sotomayor’s “wise Latina” reputation and called her “illiterate.”

"Her opinion is legally illiterate and logically indefensible," the editorial read. "And the still-young career of this self-described ‘wise Latina’ on the Supreme Court already offers a case study in the moral and legal corrosion that inevitably results from elevating ethnic-identity politics over the law."

Other critics — read: white men — called Sotomayor “overheated” and fueled by “emotion” — coded language that has been used in the past to discredit or marginalize women and minorities.

Reminder that the creators of Night Vale made their show without any corporate sponsorship or financial compensation other than donations and selling T-shirts and they made it to the number one slot on Itunes and they did it with a godblessed openly queer protagonist and an explicitly dark-skinned love interest thank you and good night.

I saw a post abt "transtrenders" and now I have a little voice in my head telling me that I'm just not really agender bc I'm not out yet But when I refer to myself as a girl(Im dfab) I wnat to pull my hair out and hurt myself.. is this dysphoria??

hellyeahagender:

Hello anon, thanks for the question.

There are different kinds of dysphoria and while the most common kind that we think of when we hear the term is body dysphoria, social dysphoria is also a form of it that includes becoming dysphoric from being misgendered (such as in your case) as well as other things that are related to our interactions with the people and world around us and how they treat us and our identities. 

I want to say, anon, that other people do not define what your identity is or who you are. Only you can do that. There are no qualifications to be agender or trans or genderqueer or to identify as any gender identity other than simply identifying as it. No one else can determine what term is right for someone else and those who try are not people whose opinions matter in the scheme of your life. 

The entire thing with ‘transtrenders’ and people accusing non-binary people of being them stems from ignorance and a lack of and refusal to understand what is different, as well as the inherent ‘trendiness’ and ‘cool factor’ people feel when they hate things that they consider to be “weird” or are becoming “too popular”. More people aren’t identifying as non-binary or trans because it’s suddenly become ‘trendy’ but because more information is out there for them to look at and use to question themselves and more communities are being made where they can get the support they need. That’s a positive thing—the people who throw around accusations of non-binary identities being trendy, on the other hand, are negative. And the opinions and thoughts of negative people are not things that are worth the weight it takes for their fingers to type them out with.
