and disapproves

2

One of the subplots in Justice League Unlimited’s second season was that of the growing relationship between Huntress and the Question. This had its roots in the Greg Rucka storyline Cry for Blood, where Vic Sage’s Question comes to Gotham with the intention of helping Helena Bertinelli’s Huntress straighten her life out in the same way that Lady Shiva did for him in his solo Dennis O’Neil series.

Unfortunately, although the pair do grow close in the comics (Helena asks Renee Montoya about him after he eventually died of lung cancer), they never get to the stage DCAU’s Vic and Helena get to. This is due to circumstances forcing Helena to arrange for the murder of her bio-dad (who ordered the hit on her parents with the intention of having Helena, her dad and her brother killed so he’d have her mum to himself), who was attempting to blackmail her into being his assassin by outing her secret identity.

Vic, who is friends with notorious mass murderer Lady Shiva, disapproves, as the enter exercise was to try and help her be a better person… even though events meant that to Helena, that wasn’t an option any more.

TO CATCH SMOKE

@scotch-melons may disapprove of my rad Hip-Hop slang skills, but they were a blast to chat and work with.

My love for my country, my desire to witness the humiliation of her enemies, a political instinct which the recent treaty [of France with the United States] would seem to justify….are, Sire, the reasons which determined the part I took in the American cause…..When I received Your Majesty’s orders, I attributed them even more to the tender solicitude of my family than to any formula of conduct considered proper toward England. The emotions of my heart overcame my reason. I thought I could foresee that my departure would not be disapproved, just as surely as I saw the impossibility of permitting it; and, if I added to my disobedience behavior which rendered me still more guilty, it is, Sire, because every Frenchman ought to risk his fortune, his hopes, and even public esteem, rather than harm the interests of his country in compromising the government by his conduct.
—  Marquis de Lafayette to King Louis XVI, trying to explain why he went to America. This is an excellent example of how Lafayette frequently played both sides. To the Americans, he expressed his desire to fight for liberty and their cause. To the French, he spoke of national pride and his own ignorance of any wrongdoing. 
Ship and Love Whoever You Want To- Just Be Kind

I’m more than a little upset about this whole “Klance is canon” ordeal. I’m a Shaladin shipper as well as a Klance, Hunk X Paladins, and Shallura shipper. I’m not shipping these ships to piss other people off. I’m shipping these ships because they make me happy. The fanart, the fics, the cosplays– they give me light.

Klance gives me an outlet to feel happiness because I currently cannot be with my partner (LDR / disapproving, homophobic guardians), and out of all the ships I feel we most connect to Klance. I also adore Sheith and Shance because the pairings are sweet and comforting, and they bring me joy (they also bring to me to tears depending on the level of angst lmao ,, , ).

There is WAAAY too much horror and mayhem going on in the world to be concerned and harassing others and fighting over fictional characters in fictional romantic / sexual relationships. There is no reason why if you disagree with someone, you can’t just have a civil conversation. That’s one of the reasons why this world is so fucked up. I’m not saying you have to ship the ships I like or adore the characters I adore, because you don’t! You are allowed to ship and love whoever you want to.

But please, p l e a s e be kind to others. Please be civil. Please be respectful.

Boots is charging women high rates for the morning after pill because they think we might use it 'inappropriately' if it's cheap
Both Superdrug and Tesco have agreed to reduce the price of emergency contraception after a campaign by The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (Bpas).

Just to put it into context, Boots is the UK number one most accessible high street drug store and the price for the morning after pill is being sold at 5 times the price of what it is on the continent because of ‘complaints’. Some might say that if the price is an issue we could simply go and shop cheaper elsewhere. The fact is, for many of us, Boots is so dominant in the UK that there’s a chance that we don’t have a choice. There might not be an elsewhere within three, four towns.

Boots have decided to put out the moralising argument that they would not want to ‘incentivise inappropriate use’ by making it cheaper. I think the statement is more of a cover for the fact that Boots doesn’t want to risk losing customers who disapprove of its products, so the price is there as an reassurance to those who take issue with the pill, to which, when complaints arise, they can simply point out the price and say, ‘Yes, Mr Sexist Dinosaur and Mrs Well-meaning Every Egg and Sperm is Sacred, we’re making it as difficult for women who don’t want to and/or cannot afford to get pregnant to access emergency medicine as possible, so please keep buying our No 7 range of facial care products and sign up for a discounted eye check’. 

Business before female autonomy, as per usual.  (22/07/2017)

Croix was sitting on her bed, legs crossed and fingers furiously typing on the keyboard. She was so focused on her work that she didn’t notice someone sitting before her, and closing her laptop. Forcing her eyes to look up from where the screen used to be, she was met by Chariot’s disapproving expression.

“Hey.”

“You haven’t slept all night, have you?” Chariot asked, crossing her arms. Despite knowing that her life in danger, Croix refused to rest and continued to work.

“I slept for two hours. That’s more than enough.” Croix answered, rubbing her tired eyes.

“Is it true that you shouted at Professor Umbridge?”
“Yes,” said Harry.
“You called her a liar?”
“Yes.”
“You told her He Who Must Not Be Named is back?”
“Yes.”
Professor McGonagall sat down behind her desk, frowning at Harry. Then she said, “Have a biscuit, Potter.”
