So, yeah. I know you’re tired of hearing about rape culture. But I’m tired of my friends getting raped.
I know you’re tired of hearing about abortion. I am too. So stop trying to tell me what to do with my uterus, and I promise you won’t hear another word from me about it.
I know men and women are different from each other. I’m just tired of that fact being used to excuse the inexcusable.
I know you’re tired of hearing about income inequality. But fuck you, pay us.
This is how it works. We get mad, we fight, we get tired, we get mad, we start again. Rinse, repeat. Feminism isn’t without its flaws, and it doesn’t seem able to speak with one voice or crystallize answers on the darker, stickier aspects of human nature and sexuality. But if I may get Rumsfeldian for a minute, this is the army we have. The fight comes to us whether we seek it or not, whether we want it or not, and whether we are ready or not.
I know you’re tired of hearing about racism. I’m tired of children of color getting murdered by white people and cops.
I know you’re tired of hearing the word “cis”. I’m tired of trans people getting erased, dehumanized, and murdered.
In the words of Catherynne M. Valente, I’ll stop telling this story when it stops happening to me.
I just love his fucking scarf. If I knew how to knit I would make this amazing piece if knittery.
I started knitting one two years ago. I recently gave it to Kay to finish for me xD
A few years ago when the very first publicity photos for this film came out, a friend sent me the one of Jude Law in costume with scarf, captioned “That sound you hear is the click of a thousand fangirls getting their knitting needles out.”
I replied something to the effect of it being a super-swag scarf and I wanted one. So she knitted me one; give a knitter a reason, you know.
We both died laughing when it turned out the scarf practically had a supporting role in the actual film.
It’s a great scarf too. Blizzardproof. I tested it.
For new knitters’ reference: that scarf is worked in Knit 1, Purl 1 rib. The K1P1 ribbing scrunches up and makes it look like stockinette on both sides.
Steve and Darcy: Queen and Knight AU
They grew up together, playing and sharing secrets even though she was royal born and he was an orphan taken in by her handmaid’s family. But as they grew older, it was seen as un-comely for the princess to be seen in the company, especially such familiar company of a commoner. Discouraged from being seen together by family and attendants alike, Darcy would sneak out of her room late at night and bring Steven books they would read together and paper for him to draw with.
It continued on a such, until Darcy came of age. The ones that knew and let their secret meetings carry on, had no choice but to put a stop to them. A new handmaid was appointed, and Steven and his adopted family were dismissed with good incentive.
Over the years, Darcy was met with suitor after suitor. She entertained them all graciously as was her duty, though she couldn’t help but compare these boys, barely men, to the kind hearted boy of her childhood. All she had were bright, fond memories amidst the mediocrity of responsibility and obligation that was her birth right.
Until one day, when an unknown knight proves himself at tournament. With a flurry of excitement, and unusual agility, he unseated the most prominent knight in the kingdom. She did not know what compelled her towards this knight, but her heart nearly skips when he removes his helm at her request, and she sees an unmistakable pair of blue eyes look up at her with determination.
or a bitch, or a whore, or ________ (insert complaint you would never make about a male character here)
THIS TIMES INFINITY!!!!!
Don’t get me wrong all the boys are very pretty, but Jane is the bamfest mofo out there ya’ll have no idea. Girl is PURE SCIENCE!!! If her brain was a physical entity it would be a universe of awesome!
*rides screeching into the distance*
His body isn’t even cold yet and the New York Times has already put out a shameful article declaring Nelson Mandela to be an ‘icon of peaceful resistance.” News outlets around the Western world are hurrying to publish obituaries that celebrate his electoral victory while erasing the protracted and fierce guerrilla struggle that he and his party were forced to fight in order to make that victory possible. Don’t let racist, imperialist liberalism co-opt the legacy of another radical. Nelson Mandela used peaceful means when he could, and violent means when he couldn’t. For this, during his life they called him a terrorist, and after his death they’ll call him a pacifist—all to neutralize the revolutionary potential of his legacy, and the lessons to be drawn from it.
Don’t fucking let them.
BOOM! And we knew this was coming. It’s everywhere. Media outlets. Individual conversations with Whites. Even some people of colour have bought into the lies because we are not taught the truth in schools because the media, U.S. Gov and education industrial complex work together to sanitize, erase, be ahistorical and manipulate through revisionism. NO!
It was -20F this morning, but my pipes did NOT freeze! Thank you for the monster snow storm, Heiki Lunta!
PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A ROBOT
A 3D Printing system that can create forms without the hindrance of gravity.
Well fuck, someone taught Dummy to sculpt.
Steve didn’t feel this could accurately be called his fault.
After all, Tony was the one who’d given him access to the workshop after Steve had asked (perhaps one too many times) to be let in to use the grinder — he was experimenting with metal sculptures, and wanted to smooth down rough edges. It was expedient, wasn’t it, to just let Steve have access whenever he wanted, since he never touched any of Tony’s works in progress or got in the way.
