Mulan: The only Disney Princess with a body count… in the thousands
I yell this to anybody who misses in anything.
a body count… in the thousands
In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.
Obama on gay adoption
yeah totally ruining this country what a horrible guy
Fun fact: Obama has attempted to fix almost everything that he promised to fix, but the republicans have voted almost all of his bills out of congress. He’s not the problem.
That fact isn’t very fun
Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part II)
The St Louis County Council meeting was a fiery afar, as residents from across the county demanded Darren Wilson’s arrest, answers for Mike Brown’s death, and expressed frustration at their own police force being turned on them like they were enemies of the state. #staywoke #farfromover
Daniel Radcliffe Brushes Off ‘Fifty Shades’ Snub (x)
I appreciate the very real disgust on his face in the second gif.
i bet rob pattinson just rang him up and screamed don’t do it in the phone
I bet this phonecall happened at 2am with no greeting and Dan knew exactly who it was and why.
I bet Robert Pattinson has made it his mission in life to prevent people from taking shitty roles that will haunt them forever and everyone in Hollywood knows it and now he’s like the Acting Avenger
the Acting Avenger
Let me get this straight:
Guys like Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown smoke pot, drink and listen to rap music: In death, they’re condemned as a vicious thugs who had it coming.
Joan Rivers was caught on camera advocating genocide and cheering on the deaths of innocent kids: In death, is called a feminist icon with a heart of gold and her vile remarks are completely swept under the rug.
OK. That’s fair.
Anonymous said: Imagine Bucky NOT being ashamed of his arm. He loves the strength it provides him, and sees it as small recompense for what Hydra took from him. He can protect the people he loves with that arm, but it's not all violence. It can tear through metal, sure, but it can also softly pet Beast Kitty's chin until she purrs happily. He can run a finger down Sam's spine so gently it makes Sam shiver. His arm gives him options most people don't have, and after having no choices for so long, he loves it.
to be fair, it takes him a long time to get there. at first, he hates it; he remembers waking up with people hovering over him and pain and metal where his arm should have been, and out of all the awful things that happened during the war and his time as the winter soldier, that’s one of the ones that haunt his nightmares the most.
he also hates it because of the things he was forced to do with it; his arm has committed nothing but violence and it’s caused more pain and suffering than he wants to think about.
at first, he actively avoids using it, because he’s tired of using it to hurt people.
he doesn’t really start to think of it as a positive thing until he uses it during a rescue mission, to save civilians who are trapped under the rubble of a fallen building. with the arm, he can move chunks of rubble that even steve can’t budge, and he saves the lives of five people that day.
after that, he notices the little things he can use it for. he can open any jar in the cupboard, even when darcy has glued her mod podge shut again and even thor can’t open it. he doesn’t need an oven mitt to grab a hot pot off the stove when he’s helping clint cook. he can lift the couch with one hand and vacuum underneath it with the other.
he has a long talk with natasha about what it means to be unmade and the measures she’s taken to rebuild her life in the aftermath, and she quietly admits that she’s never talked about this to anyone but clint, and never in such detail. she tells him that he can’t change what they did to him, and she can’t change what they did to her; all either of them can do is make choices in the here and now, and remembering that helps her. bucky can’t decide if it upsets him or comforts him at first, but he thinks about it a lot.
it takes him a long time to get there, but eventually he decides that the most important thing about his arm is how he chooses to use it.
Then finish it.
…while “the female gaze” is attracted by things like a naked, sweaty Chris Evans or Idris Elba, it’s also attracted by things like: men smiling in sweaters, men crying (DON’T LIE TUMBLR), barefoot fragile Sebastian Stan in the rain on Political Animals, men holding babies, men speaking foreign languages, Mark Ruffalo, and a whole bunch of weird stuff on Ao3 that I don’t even wanna get into. And that’s just “the female gaze as it pertains to men.”
This is God’s truth. Tell it like it is!
What I find very interesting about this, is that while the sweaty Chris Evans thing is very much the mirror of the typical male gaze reimagined for straight women, most of others (and I agree with all of them) are about being emotional and expressive and engaged which are of course, the opposite of the pressure that masculinity places on men.
