Hindsight 20/20

You know when you were studying history at school and you looked at 1930s germany and with your 20:20 hindsight you looked at it and all the terrible things happening in the build up - persecuting minorities, silencing academics, painting bad press as fraudulent, etc - and you said there were *so* many redflags so why didn’t people stop this all from happening??

Yeah, that.

HUMO: You’re a feminist, you have already said that several times. Many young women do not like being associated with feminism, because in their eyes it is a movement that forbids them to wear heels.

Evelyne Brochu: Feminists are the reason that I can vote, and my main concern is not whether I should wear heels or not, but that I might soon lose that acquired right as a woman. That Donald Trump is completely disturbed. The first thing he did as president, was to abolish subsidies for abortion clinics. And isn’t it scary what humiliating statements the most powerful man in the world can make about women? Everybody says: “They are just words.” But words set the motion more often than you think. A man thinks much faster now, “If the most powerful man can say that, it is okay if I say it too.” While women previously where not given the same room as men to be angry, or different, or crazy, a man is admired for those things, “Look how strong he is and what strong opinions he has.” A woman would be called hysterical.

Women are constantly belittled. We are told how we should behave if we want to be loved. That’s my biggest concern. I could care less about those heels.

This is a translation of Ebro’s interview with a Belgium magazine. For the full translated interview keep reading.

frequent customer interactions at the ice cream shop

Customer: I’d like a small.
Me: Sure! Do you mean a single scoop or a kiddie size scoop?
Customer: A small.

Me: [hands customer a taste on one of our reusable taster spoons]
Customer: [tries to hand it back to me when they’re done tasting instead of placing it in the used taster spoon bucket, labeled USED TASTER SPOONS, which is 6 inches in front of their face on top of the cabinet.]

Customer: I’d like that one.
Me: Which flavor?
Customer: [vague gesture at the cabinet] That one.

Me: Waffle cone or sugar cone?
Customer: Cone.

Me: Cup or cone?
Customer: Yes.

a week ago or so I felt incredibly nostalgic so I doodled my favorite SP boy - remember when I doodled nothing but SP and especially Tweek??

Aaaah… fun times. I wasn’t necessarily a good person back then but that doesn’t mean the memories are bad haha

Hindsight (Part 1)

By: ProMarvelFanGirl

Pairing: Bucky x reader

Summary: Hindsight is always 20/20. Sometimes it takes seeing people through someone else’s eyes to see the truth. (Friends into Lovers)

TAGGING IS OPEN -Updated Every Wednesday!


You sit in your favorite yellow armchair that is placed at the perfect angle to give you the best light to read, it was the best reading light in all of Avengers Tower.  You had found your chair in a vintage shop in Brooklyn with Bucky one day and had fallen in love.  You purchased it right away and not wanting to wait for delivery, you forced Bucky to carry your chair with his bionic arm the whole way back to the tower.

Bucky was your best friend, and even though he grumbled the entire way, he couldn’t help but smile at how incredibly happy and in love with the chair you had become.  When the two of you had got close, people assumed you were together, light touches, dinners alone, it all seemed very intimate.  However friendship was all it was, if either of you had feelings it was never mentioned and you fell into a comfortable friendship.

Bucky had been dating Jeanette for over a year and you liked her a lot, she brought Bucky even more out of shell and even helped you convince him to change his all black wardrobe.  Your only fear in their relationship was that you knew she wanted them to live outside the tower.  You didn’t want to lose your best friend, but you knew he deserved happiness and you knew Jeanette made him happy.  So to practice getting ready for him to move out, you stopped trying to spend every moment with him, spending more time with Steve instead.

Steve however, was currently on a mission but due back any minute,  so you were finishing your book while you waited for him.  Bucky and Jeanette had been planning their engagement party all week, so it had been fairly easy to remove yourself from Bucky’s side.  A shadow suddenly blocks your perfect light, breaking your thoughts.  You look up to find Bucky standing over you with a frown.

“You’re avoiding me.”  You roll your eyes at him and return to your book determined not to pay him any attention.

Hindsight (Part 3)

Pairing: Bucky x reader

Summary: Hindsight is always 20/20. Sometimes it takes seeing people through someone else’s eyes to see the truth. (Friends into Lovers)

TAGGING IS OPEN -Updated Every Wednesday!


Three days later you had almost completely finished moving to your new Brooklyn apartment.   Steve had raised an eyebrow when he heard where you were going to be living, but you just ignored him.  You only had a few boxes remaining in your room and you had yet to move your yellow reading chair over.   After Steve had left your apartment from helping you unpack, you settled on your new couch and turned on a movie, maybe all this quiet is exactly what you needed.

Bucky returned from his mission unscathed but annoyed.  He had been on a solo mission, and with no one to talk to, all he could do was focus on what had transpired between the two of you and how your relationship had changed.  He also had to figure out what was going on between you and Steve.   Bucky had decided no matter what Steve or Jeanette said he was going to talk to you and figure out what is going on and get everything worked out.

Bucky was greeted in the hanger not by you as was usual, but Jeanette.  He walks up to her quickly and gives her a quick kiss on the cheek before turning and walking towards the entrance to the building.  “Do you know where Y/n is?  I need to talk to her.”

Jeanette just shrugs disappointed that his sole focus was you, before she could say anything Bucky was walking away from her searching for Steve.  Jeanette frowned after his form, even though you had removed yourself from Bucky as she asked, she hadn’t banked on how he would act in the situation.  He marched to your room only to find the door was locked and his knocks went unanswered.   He then made his way to Steve’s room, not bothering to knock before entering.

“Where is Y/n?”  Steve looks up from his book and moves from the lounging position on his bed to sit on the side.  He gives his best friend a roll of the eyes before standing to face him.

“Buck shouldn’t you be greeting your fiance?”  Steve still wasn’t sure how he was going to tell his best friend that you had left, he was still trying to figure out how to get your chair out without him noticing.

“I’ve already seen Jeanie, I need to right things with Y/n.  I know you know where she is so just tell me.  And why the hell didn’t you tell me you were into her?”  Bucky crosses his arms and fixes Steve with his winter soldier glare.

anonymous asked:

its honestly fucking disgusting that you didnt even BOTHER, as an adult, to even censor out the poor kids fucking url. 50,000 goddamn notes and as far as i can tell he literally deleted from being harassed. 50,000 notes and hes STILL getting dragged. you are disgusting. shame on you for provoking the harassment of someone barely 15.

hey so uh, I didn’t expect the post to get as much traction as it did,and I really think about blocking out the name until it was far too late. I felt really bad about it and so I tried to check up on them even though they had blocked me. They seemed like they had unrelated personal issues going on, on top of them getting involved in a lot of various discourse. They had changed their url, and it wasn’t until a week or two later I noticed they had deleted. If they remade I’d like to be able to formally apologize for all the attention I’ve given them.

But also, really? I’m disgusting? Nobody should have been harassing them to begin with. My post to them should have been the final say on the matter, not an invitation to start a witch hunt!! They are not evil or whatever for making an incorrect assumption, and I don’t think I should be labeled evil for clarifying my own post. 

You all need to get out of this black-and-white mentality before it gets too out of hand.
