MEET & GREET! Submit your meet-and-greet stories to bryanstarsfanpictures@gmail.com. They are posted throughout the week.

Last year on March 14 on the second day Bring Me The Horizon, Of Mice & Men , Issues, and letlive came to Houston during The American Tour is when I had the chance to meet Jordan Fish. This is how it pretty much went. I was on the sidewalk waiting for my cousins and I started walking around, the I saw this odd circle forming and I went to see what was happening (I though a fight was happening). Anyways I went over where the circle was and when I saw who was the circle for I frozed up completely. I started freaking out, crying, and also shaking. He saw me crying and asked me what was wrong and I answered him “I’m in front of one of my hero’s!!!” He laughed then hugged me and said that everything will be okay and we took a couple of selfies. Before he went back in he gave me a last hug and his autograph. Then during the show, the singer from letlive got inside the croud to start a pit and joined the pit. During that he grabbed me by my hand and pulled me inside to join the pit. This was the best day of my life!

I’m starting to think that if I want to enjoy agent carter in peace I need to keep it blacklisted also when I’m not doing it because I don’t wanna be spoiled because wow this website’s attitude about pretty much anything keeps on baffling me every damned time especially considering the terms in which you… discuss possible issues in a show versus labeling it as total crap because it doesn’t meet a certain quota of things you wanted in it

Model Workout

It was requested that I have a lean and fit build for a photo shoot in the Men’s Issue of Style Equation Magazine.  I ate a healthy diet, reduced sodium intake and was sure to drink lots of water every day.  In addition, I designed a program that concentrated on a split body part workout to burn fat and gain lean muscle mass.  High-volume work with limited rest between sets maximized muscle hypertrophy.  Sets included 8-12 repetitions with 30-60 second rests per exercise.  A high-intensity execution and training ‘to muscle failure’ is what worked best for me.  

Here is the program:

For a warm up, I do mainly dynamic stretching with some limited static stretching.

Post workout, I prefer static stretching.

At the time that I practiced this routine, I ran to and from the gym to complete my cardio, which was about 10 minutes each way.

A hardcore abs routine would be completed every other day consisting of planks, side planks, leg raises, crunches, and bicycle kicks (3-5 sets of each/20-25 reps).

alright it’s 2015 can we STOP making passive aggressive posts about men’s issues being like “this won’t get HALF the notes of [such and such post] because it’s about men”

here’s a thought: you don’t have to guilt people into caring about important issues, you don’t have to constantly play “who has it harder” for your issues to be legitimized and you shouldn’t make women feel bad for speaking up about issues that are facing them. grow the fuck up.

i call myself a lesbian for brevity and community but I don’t think about that label too hard. my “sexual orientation” would not exist without men and the way that the class of “men” would not exist without its power relation to “women” (and vice versa) and since I believe in a demolition of those power structures, i think worrying a whole lot about determining The Exact Label that fits your sexuality and getting really specific with it is unnecessary. you can just, like, tell someone if you’re interested in dating them or not. 

Either you’re straight or you’re demonized by the straights. Of course the utility for finding community with people who share similar experiences is important, which is why i call myself a lesbian, but I don’t see any reason beyond that to manufacture ever-fracturing dividers between people who should have solidarity.

i believe similar things about gender. i call myself a nonbinary girl but like 1. whatever, and 2. the only real reason for that distinction is because it makes it easier to find community with people who face similar lives as me (e.g. other trans women)


tl;dr i think gender/sexuality labels are less important than finding solidarity in the ways that people are disadvantaged by the same systems, and that labels are only important in the ways that they function to create solidarity against those systems. they lose their only good reason for existing when they act to hinder that purpose

The thing with abortion to me is not a women’s rights issue. If men and women could both give birth, I would have the same stance. I mean, it is your body, but come on now, you are sharing it with another tiny person that is depending on your life for their own for the next 8-9 months… Their body is in your body, so take care of it rather than destroy it. It’s not a cancer. It’s another human being…what is so difficult to understand about that?
