Hate Has No Home Here

hate has no home here.

i am honored to know and talk to so many of you on this site who are constantly fighting with and for causes, be they individual, personal, or broad, and i applaud you all on your bravery, your pursuit, and your compassion.

but since i have recently been made aware of hate mail being spread to some of my followers, and to those who don’t follow me, i want it to be made very clear. this blog will not tolerate that. and this blog will report any sort of violation to anyone’s safety and wellbeing, should it be threatened by bigoted views and actions.

hate has no home here  

So here’s an email I just sent to Marvel, in case you’re interested

To the editors of Marvel Comics:

Many of the letters in your letters pages begin with the writer’s long history of reading comics as evidence that you should care about their opinion and want to keep them as a customer. While I may be relatively new to comics, I think I’m a pretty desirable customer. Not only do I have disposable income and a willingness to spend money on physical books in a brick-and-mortar comic shop, but I’m also a teacher and librarian with the power to get your books in the hands of the next generation.

Until recently, I was thrilled to do just that. I teach at a school that serves a very diverse population and I wanted to expose my students to heroes who look like them. I bought them Miles Morales, Sam Wilson, Ms. Marvel, Silk, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, various team books, and more. I did this not with the school’s budget, but with my own money (and I of course took the opportunity to read them myself first).

For myself (although I also share most of them with students), I have every issue of Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat!, The Mighty Thor, Mockingbird, Storm, and most of the recent Black Widow and Captain Marvel runs. I’ve been eagerly awaiting Nick Fury and America, and was not disappointed by their #1s. I’ve loved so much of what Marvel has given me over the past few years; I got to see parts of myself and the people I love in these books, parts that I don’t always get to see in popular media.

But none of the above were the characters that got me into comics; that honor belongs to Steve Rogers. I fell in love with him in the movies, with his steadfastness and his sense of justice and his belief in doing the right thing and protecting individuals. I went back and read Brubaker’s Winter Soldier arc, but was too intimidated by the vastness of the Marvel universe to read many of the books he was currently appearing in when I first started reading comics.

And then I found out he was being restored to his young self and getting a new series. I was ECSTATIC. I couldn’t wait to get it and see what new adventures this amazing character would go on. When I found out about the twist at the end of #1, I was upset, but everyone assured me that this is comics - it’ll be mind control or a decoy or some other trick. Soon everything would be back to normal. But as I realized how committed everyone at Marvel was to the reality of Steve-the-Hydra-Agent, I also realized that this was a book that didn’t want me as a reader. This version of Steve Rogers seemed to have nothing in common with the Steve Rogers I had fallen in love with. As a queer woman with Jewish ancestry, I felt like my concerns were dismissed and that I was unwelcome. 

So I didn’t buy the book. I kept my other subscriptions and continued to enjoy them, all the while waiting for the trick-behind-the-trick that everyone else seemed sure would come. And then Secret Empire began.
I don’t know if I can put into words how it felt to find out that according to this new story, Steve Rogers has never been a hero at all. The closest I can get is that it was a punch in the gut, although I feel the cliche fails to accurately convey the strength of my response.

Stories matter. Heroes matter. And in a world that feels full of pain and fear and darkness, stories and heroes matter even more. The people I love are living with a lot of fear right now - fear of deportation, fear of losing access to health care, fear of being attacked for who they love or the color of their skin - and so am I. We need heroes who can remind us of why we fight, why we resist, why we rise above, why we plant ourselves like a tree and say “no, you move.”

Steve Rogers used to be that hero for me and for many others. To take a hero like Steve Rogers and destroy everything that made him who he was, everything that he was created to be…I don’t know why that is a story that Marvel wants to tell right now. Or ever. It is incomprehensible to me.

And it leaves me torn. I have asked my shop to not pull any books related to Secret Empire for me, and a part of me wants to firmly declare that Marvel will never see another cent of my money at all. The other part of me remembers how much I have loved and appreciated my other experiences as a Marvel fan, the encouragement that your characters and stories have given me, the ways they’ve made me laugh and given me something to look forward to, a bright spot in the middle of the week.

I don’t know if I will keep buying Marvel comics. I want to, but I’m not sure you want me to. Right now, it seems like I’m the type of customer that you don’t want at all - the customer who values the diversity you’ve blamed for the sales slump and who wants her good guys to be good, even when it’s hard.

Hoping to remain a fan,
Rachel A. 

You know you’re fucked when you’re only 15 but yet it feels like the world could end right there and you would be fine with it. It’s fucked when girls and boys are so young but so depressed, so heartbroken. Feelings fuck you up, i remember when i was only a little girl and i had this whole life ahead of me and all I wanted was a boyfriend. And now after having one, I don’t understand why I needed one, it’s messed me up. Emotionally and physically, I am fucked.

He was the type of boy you could just see yourself lasting forever with, and that’s exactly what I did. He teased me so much that I used to sook about it, but that didn’t matter because at least he was making me smile in some way. He cared so deeply, and he was so sensitive even though everyone I knew saw him as this big tough guy. He was gentle, he was romantic, it was like we were 23 and just madly in love. Our relationship was beyond what you would expect at such a young age, but we were just so maturely in love. But that’s the thing, i’m not 23, i’m so young and now i’m heartbroken and it’s not as simple as going out every night to get him out of my head. I have to sleep early because of school, i have to go to school, I have to study and commit to all of my commitments and it’s impossible to get him out of my mind. He wasn’t just my boyfriend, he was genuinely my best friend and sometimes we fought as best friends would. But no matter how we were fighting, we fought as hard as we could for each other because that’s what love does to you. But one day i guess he just decided to stop fighting, and it wasn’t like I was expecting it. We always swore we would fight for each other, fight for the relationship, fight for our fucking love but he didn’t want too anymore. He didn’t want me anymore, and i can say with all my broken heart that killed me. It’s the worst thing to wake up happily in love and then go to bed broken because you’ve lost the reason why you even got up that day. He said he lost feelings, but I can’t place when. When did he lose feelings? With all of that sweet talk, the kisses, the texts, the calls, the hugs, everything and at some point he somehow started to lose feelings. And it hurt and surprised me so much because everyone knew that he was crazy about me. I saw parts of him that he would never dare to show anyone, we were so comfortable with each other and we allowed each other into our hearts but for some reason he just didn’t want that anymore. I can not place that all in my head, how you can suddenly lose interest in something you once loved. And it wasn’t like the hurt stopped there, no a month later he found himself with another girl. Making all the memories, the love, the jokes, that we were once doing. And the weirdest thing is, everyone around him can see that he doesn’t love her. Not the way he loved me at least. And i can’t seem to process the thought of why you would throw away a diamond for a fake one. Why would you throw away your perfect girl for someone who doesn’t even come close? Fuck, she’s not even pretty and yet i feel like i have to compete with her. And every month goes by, and they are still going strong and for some reason my brain still can’t process it. I still can’t believe that he’s moved on from me because love doesn’t just go away. You can’t just get rid of love because you don’t want it anymore, feelings don’t leave when you ask them too. So what is he doing with her when he can be with me? I’ve never been the girl to wait for someone, i always want to try with everyone but for some reason i am constantly drawn to him, as if he’s truly made for me and i think he is. I think he’s the love of my life and maybe i’m just not his. But when you love something you don’t just let it go, you fucking fight like crazy for it and i can promise everyone i would never go down without a fight. Okay maybe he’s happily in love with her, but what about me? What about my love for him? That doesn’t just go away, that doesn’t get excluded so fuck society and their expectations. Fuck everyone who thinks i won’t succeed. I know what I want, and i’ve never been so determined to get it.

I’m completely, absolutely, irrevocably in love with you.

I love you. And I think I’ve loved you since the day I started to get to know you. I remember talking to you over whatsapp for hours and hours into the night, and then moving on to phone calls, that also lasted hours and hours into the night.

My friends knew I loved you even before I ever did. I never thought for a second that I did until the day you told me you ran into the most beautiful girl, the girl of your dreams. I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t as excited as I’d thought I would be, this was last May, 2015. When I asked her sit next to you and when she did, my heart broke into millions of tiny pieces, but I didn’t know why.

I remember the look on your eyes every time you saw her, I was happy for you, I really was. Because seeing you happy meant a lot more to me than my own happiness did. What I didn’t know was that I was completely enchanted by you.

8:52pm (Artemis)

Do you ever wonder about souls? Surely we too have them. How corrupt they must be, twisted and torn, riddled in pride and dishonesty. Unsent: We do have them. I feel mine, and how it’s twisted and bent into something unrecognizable

9:00pm (Apollo)

You think too much.


2:37 am (Artemis)

I passed someone today; his eyes looked like the moon in shades of blue. Unsent: It made me think of mistakes, and how mistakes become scars. I’d like one, maybe two cut, across my chest. It might help me separate what is real and what is not

2:43 am (Apollo)

I saw a girl who looked like Cassandra. I wished her dead and that she would remember me all in one breath.

2:45 am (Artemis)

I know. Me too.


4:05 am (Artemis)

Do you still fight the future?

2 seconds later (Apollo)

Every day. Every night. With every breath I have. Unsent: Because it terrifies me. The darkness. The death. We will be all that’s left, and we won’t be able to start over again.

4:06 am (Artemis)

I fight the past. Every expectation I failed to meet. Every decision I ever made in vain. All the vows I gave too easily. Youth. Youth makes gods foolish.

4:07 am (Apollo)

Unsent: I’m sorry. I’m sorry for the part I played


10:59 pm (Artemis)

I wished it would end. I wanted the world to burn and to watch it out of spite. Unsent: Then I wanted to save it, quench the fire with the ocean. I wanted to prove I still could.

11:00 pm (Apollo)

I saw it.

11:01 pm (Apollo)

I had a vision today of a world that didn’t burn in fire. I had a vision of a world where we were happy.

5 seconds later (Artemis)

Do we even deserve it?

2 seconds after that (Apollo)

No. But it was nice. It was nice to have hope.

Sitting in a booth in the back of the dive bar you watched Sam and Dean playing pool. Well it was more on the lines hustling pool rather than actually playing. They both had a beer in their hands as the watched the drunk bikers try to play. Sam had assured you that this would be their last round, but if they kept their winning streak up they would be there much longer. So until they were ready to go, you were going to sit back and drink your pina-colada until they were ready to go.

Minutes turned into another hour and you were getting pretty tired of waiting. While lost in your own world Dean snuck up behind you and grabbed both your shoulder. You immediately went reaching for the pistol hidden in your jacket, but stopped as soon as Dean sat across from you. His cheeks were flushed as he laughed taking another sip out of his beer.

  • ❛  I know you can do this. I know you can hear me. Stay with me. Listen to my voice.  ❜

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.

anonymous asked:

Why do you love Arrow? (I'm the same anon who asked why you watch Arrow. Hint : While I love your gif responses it's your words that always hit me so hard so give me some words please Matty)

Oh, anon. Since you specifically wanted words, here you go. This is something I’ve said before and I’ll say it till my dying day. 

I love Arrow. 

Because this show has given me so, so much, I’m not certain I’ll ever be able to express it completely.

Arrow came into my life at a point when I was at my lowest. I was emotionally messed up in every way conceivable, everything had fallen apart, all at once. I’d shut down in real life and was barely coping. It was one big depressive fest. And it was dark. So, so dark.

And then Arrow happened.

I know it sounds cheesy - all this light and dark thing, but for me it was true. I have no idea why, but one day I was watching the show and it just clicked.

And for me, it was beautiful.

It gave me Oliver Queen, who inspired me deep down to my bones, who gave me the strength and the courage to keep moving forward no matter how bad things seemed, to believe that they’ll always get better, making me the silver lines chaser I am today. He gave me the will to keep fighting and I will love him till my dying day. (And he introduced me to the salmon ladder. That in itself earns him my love).

It gave me Felicity Smoak, who told me it was okay to be awkward, that being a hero and being good did not need a mask, that being a person completely comfortable in their strengths and a good heart was more important. She made me realize that a girl should take pride in her hard work and just be who she is, no matter what.

It gave me John Diggle, who honestly speaks words of wisdom to Oliver and I’m nodding my head vigorously. He told me that no matter what ugly things you see and live through, you can rise above them and not be it. 

It made me believe in a love born true from the soul. It made me understand that family and friendships were made of heart and not blood. It made me believe in the strength of the spirit inside each and every one of us, no matter our circumstances. It told me that it doesn’t matter whether you’re a rich kid stranded on an island considered dead by the world; or if you were a soldier who’d lost his brother; or if you were a little girl abandoned by every man in your life; or if you were a pampered princess who finds out her entire life has been built on lies; or if you were a billionaire who’d lost his wife to street violence; or if you were a soldier in love with a woman who loved another man; or if you were a street kid with no family and nothing except this rage inside you that wouldn’t die; or if you were a normal man with money who’d lost his best friend and found him again, only to realize he was a liar and a murderer… it doesn’t matter what your circumstances are - what matters is how you respond to them. It’s your choice to become the villains of your own story, your choice to become the heroes. It’s on you if you want to drown the world in your pain or rise above it and make something beautiful of it. 

It’s always your choice. 

There could have been no greater villain than Oliver Queen had he made a choice. There could have been no force stopping Felicity Smoak from destroying the world at her fingers had she made a choice.

But they chose to be heroes, chose to rise above their pasts for a better future.

It’s so damn beautiful.

Over time, this gave me the courage to rise beyond mine slowly. To step into the fandom. I lurked around and stalked people mostly in the beginning (although it was never that creepy), and over time, one step at a time, I entered this crazy place and was just consumed by the sheer intensity of it.

I know these are fictional characters, but what they inspire in me is not fiction. It’s very, very real and living my life with these characters has made it so much richer.

Because it’s through this show that I’ve met so many beautiful people who make me smile every single day. It’s through this show that I’ve made friends I know are going to stay with me for a long time. It’s because of this that I can come back here on a bad day and leave with a huge grin on my face.

Because it’s this show and its characters who pushed me into finding the strength to put words on a screen. This show made me want to tell stories. It made me realize it was okay to share my thoughts and from being quiet, it’s made me evolve into someone confident enough in her thoughts to voice them. It has given me a tolerance for opinions and respect for choices, all the interactions with such varied people. 

I’ve grown more over the last few years writing these characters than I have in my entire life. The changes it’s brought in me are almost tangible.

It made me want to write and write and write and just keep on writing and sharing so many stories.

It’s given me passion.

It’s given me perspective.

It’s given me understanding.

It’s given me strength.

But most importantly, it’s given me hope.

Hope. So hard to find. So hard to hold on to. So hard to let go of.

This show has consistently given me so much hope, for me.

And no matter which direction it goes in, I will always, always love Arrow and its characters for giving me so, so much when I had absolutely nothing.  

I love Arrow, and I always will, for the person it’s made me so subtly over time.

To my first and last love,

It’s been a year. A year now that I’ve been with you and fallen so deeply in love. I’m so grateful I was given the opportunity to discover you. You motivate and inspire me so much and without you I wouldn’t be the person I am today. You make me just beyond happy and proud I can’t explain. You’ve made me feel something I’ve never felt for a human before. I will always be here to support you so always remember to keep fighting and remember there are so many people who love you. Never be sad because seeing you smile makes all us carats smile even bigger. You are so perfect in every single way and I don’t want to change a thing about you. I want to stand on a mountain and scream to the world that I’m in love with you. My heart belongs to you and only you now. Thank you for coming into my life. I will love you forever and always,
Hansol Vernon Chwe

This world has outgrown the days
when you could reach your hands up to the stars
and scoop out a part of the night sky
spelling out the name of your lover
in astral alphabet soup
I don’t know if I believe in fate very much
soulmates even less
I don’t understand how a match could be made
before I even know what I want
but with you
I am wholly content
knowing that our fights will have endings
and our mornings will be bright
with you 
there is no promise of forever
no infinity has decided to grace us
we are two people who are simply in love
for now
but that is enough for me
to know that right here we are happy
if life was about finding your ending
there would be no point to living
so instead let us live
satisfied with ourselves
and let the stars burn for us
not the other way around.
—  You don’t have to be soulmates to be in love

i don't get the significance of jonas throwing the milk, help a girl out :S (and yes, i get what milk means :))

Sorry it took a while for me to get back to you, been a bit of a busy day!

So what I meant about it being significant that Jonas threw the milk (x) is fairly straightforward actually. We had hints through S1 that Isak had a crush on Jonas, and so combining the symbolism of the milk with the lyrics of Nils Bech’s “Waiting”, I thought the fact that it was Jonas who threw it felt like a very fitting choice. But I’ll try to be a bit more specific….

Alright buckle up I’m gonna dissect some cinematography *rubs hands* (yes I totally made this gifset so I could properly look at the shots with lyrics)

Closeup of Isak “I am the last one”
We see Isak watching the water fight “Everyone knows how I tried”

A shot of Jonas “Love, let me meet you.”
cut to the guys fooling around “When everyone has to…“

Isak has averted his gaze, a forlorn look on his face “…have someone to love”
we see Jonas reaching for the milk “I never met one”

Jonas grabs and flings the milk towards Isak “What’s so strange about me?”

The milk explodes cascading down… “Can’t I be loved? loved…”

The milk here is definitely suggestive of homoerotic imagery (confirmed by Julie that she was inspired by the line “penetrators come on your face, it shall rain cum” from the Penetrators song x) but the lyrics and visuals make it feel almost threatening, as if the milk will expose him. Isak seems aware that his attraction to Jonas is one-sided, and Jonas throwing the milk doesn’t look homoerotic until it hits Isak’s face.

Ultimately everyone is wet, but Isak’s wetness is different from everyone else in the locker…. and the lyrics paired with this imagery talks of Isak feeling strange, like an outsider, more specifically his fear of being perceived as gay. But in the end he sits there, ‘outed’, drenched in milk wondering if he can be loved…

Hope it made some sense!!

I’m gonna plug @ravenclawisak, she has written awesome meta about this trailer and she can surely also elaborate better about the significance of it being Jonas throwing the milk if you ask her nicely. ✌

Just an FYI.

I do not support the man who is currently filling the role of president in my country.  I do not support his actions and I will fight them at every turn I can.  

I know in the past people have gotten upset about me mentioning politics on my “company” blog.  But here’s the thing… I am not a company.  It’s just me here, people.  But no matter if it was just me or 10 people or 100 or a whole big global organization I would still shout it from the roof tops that this man is the worst thing that has ever happened to my country and I will fight him every way I can.  

I also totally condone punching nazi’s.  I spent most of my childhood terrified of white supremacists and KKK members who harassed my family and other poc or mixed families in my home town.  They made us feel unsafe, they made us feel outnumbered.  They offered violence toward us because they thought we were outnumbered.  A ten year old can’t punch a grown man, neither can a mom or dad trying to protect their kids… but I can.  And I will. I will be going for their soft spots next.

If that makes you not want to buy my dolls or watch my blog or follow me, that’s fine.  

It doesn’t mean that I’m going to start reblogging political stuff, that’s all on my personal blog.  However, I wanted to say my peace about this.

The holy trinity! The I am the main character(which we look alike)who Is in love with the delinquent who always fights and gets into trouble and what not. No but for reals though Sakamoto, kaoru & kikuhiko do look a like, and I happen to ship each one of them with the other guys in the pictures. All three animes has made me cry.(which is rare!) my heart feels broken now! 😭😭 I’ll forever ship these guys. And loves these shows. ❤️

Character: Elena Alvarez 

From: One Day at a Time (2017) 

Representation: Lesbian, Cuban

Their Importance: Elena is a feminist, lesbian, and social justice warrior and is outspoken about all three. She is consistently pointing out misogynistic issues, and can be incredibly passionate when talking about problems in society, which I very much appreciate as I can be the same way. 

What I relate to most about Elena is the fact that she cannot speak Spanish, but is still very proud of her culture. While I’m not Cuban, I am someone who loves her culture but doesn’t understand her parent’s language. Seeing Elena struggle in the same way made me happy - the show only briefly touched on her not understanding Spanish, but I often feel like I’m bad for not understanding my parent’s language, so to see a character also struggle with understanding their culture’s language made me feel much better. Also, just seeing Elena being so young and yet understanding and fighting for social justice and feminism is awesome to see. 

Thanks to @starklinqs for the write up!
