This is important. I’m speaking very much to myself.

I might not be concerned for K-Stew, but I am concerned for my younger stepsister who has pictures of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson on her walls, who idolizes and worships them, and who might grow up to hate Kristen Stewart for reasons she doesn’t understand. I’m worried she will be taught that it’s not okay to mess up, learn from it and apologize, because no one wants your apology, just your suffering on camera. I’m worried that she’ll think its okay to harass and threaten women for their indiscretions, even if men get off scot-free. I’m worried she will think this culture of bullying, slut-shaming and rhetorical violence against women is the norm, because you get a t-shirt for it. I’m worried she will learn to internalize the shame brought on far too many women today, for having sexualities, for not being perfect, for not fitting into a box. I’m worried she’ll believe men like Todd Akin, Paul Ryan and Mike Huckabee are right.

Badass Widow

It’s not that I’m in love with her.

… I’d prefer to worship from afar.

Usually this would make me at least chuckle a little. Today I can at least manage an internal acknowledgement that this is funny.

When 1,100 Michigan elementary students were asked to describe what life would be like if they were the opposite sex, over 40 percent of the girls saw advantages to being male; they would have better jobs, higher incomes, and more respect. Ninety-five percent of the boys saw no advantage to being female, and a substantial number thought suicide would be preferable.

…sexism is technically the systematic discrimination and debasement of a person based on their gender so in that way, a cis-male cannot be a victim of sexism because it’s not reinforcing a system that keeps cis-men down. They can, however, be the victims of douchebaggery, same as anyone else.

avengersaccumulate:

So every time I go to Starbucks and they ask for my name I always tell them ‘Tony Stark’. 
(I’m cool I know.)
Anyway today when they called out my ‘name’ and I went to collect it I noticed this guy blatantly staring at me as he ordered his drink. 
I thought nothing of it and went over to get some sugar when I noticed that the guy was walking over to me, still staring right into my eyes. 
So by this point I was getting quite nervous and was about to ask him if I knew him when he leaned in right next to my ear and whispered;
Peasant
I stood there, mouth open, about to ask him what the actual fuck when the barista called out ‘Latte for Loki’ and the guy walked over, picked up his drink, winked at me and walked out the door. 
I swear to god I have never laughed more in a public place than I did today.

It’s like he knows something we don’t know.

COLIN TELL US YOUR SECRETS. 
HOW DID SHERLOCK SURVIVE?

WHERE IS THE AIRPORT?

HOW DO YOU DIVIDE BY ZERO?

WHAT IS LESTRADE’S DIVISION? 

WHAT HAPPENED IN BUDAPEST?

WHAT IS THE DOCTOR’S NAME?

WHAT EXACTLY IS THE FUNCTION OF A RUBBER DUCK?

don’t you hate it when you’re reading a chapter and then it’s coming to its climax and omg what’s gonna happen, then woops, your eyes dart to the last line and you spoil yourself and hate yourself for it

Ugh. I did this with The Hunger Games. Mockingjay, in particular. The chapter where Peeta returns. It was going to be my last chapter before bed until I read that. Heart skipped a beat, I stifled a scream, and had to keep reading.
