Incredible illustrator @thelatestkate has never been afraid to talk about difficult topics; in the past, she’s shared her personal experiences with depression and leaving her religion, and her courage and candidness are always inspirational to us.

Today, she deals with another serious issue: how to cope if your parents are bullies. Bullying may seem like something that just happens in high school hallways, but it can happen at home, too—and if it’s happening to you, please know that the SparkLife community is always here for you, and that there are places you can turn to for help

Tumblr in a Nutshell
  • Tumblr:Please don't bully people. No one deserves to be bullied.
  • Tumblr:*sends Joss Whedon hateful messages, death threats, and suggests that stop doing what he loves and kill himself over a sequel they were disappointed in and his decision of headwear in a Twitter profile pic*
  • Joss Whedon:*deletes Twitter page*
  • Tumblr:*laughs and makes fun of Joss Whedon for deleting his Twitter page, patting each other on the back for making it happen*
  • Tumblr:Remember, bullying is wrong!

Captain America not only navigates masculinity, but he completely subverts and ultimately rejects our contemporary conceptions of what it means to be a man, thereby creating a new kind of masculinity that demands self-inquiry, emotional empathy, and innate goodness. It’s not enough to just say Cap is an example of non-toxic masculinity, because what Cap does is redefine the binary of maleness. He’s not just an emblem for what not to be; he’s a roadmap of masculine possibility.
