After watching When We Rise, I clapped and then I cried. I sprinted around my house, screaming “we won!” And I woke up my brothers. I knew who Cleve Jones was before this show, but only because of Milk, and I can tell you all about HIV/AIDS, but only because of Rent, and I went and did research on Harvey milk and subsequently Cleve, and the aids epidemic, but these other mothers and fathers of the movement, I couldn’t say anything. This show is so important. I’ve never known a world where we didn’t have Obama, he was elected when I was 6. I didn’t know I had a reason to be upset that election night. My parents were ecstatic, a Chicago man as president! At that point I knew I was gay but all of this, this rich history, richer and more powerful and documented than most histories, is the next big moment. This has to be the turning point. When we’re under an administration that wants to take away everything we’ve fought for, we must rise again, for the gay kids. Everything we do is for them, and for us, and for me, a fifteen year old Jewish lesbian who’s already scared for my future. I want to get married one day, and I want kids. I’ve always wanted kids. I want them to be as proud as I am right now.

It’s been weeks since I discovered this video and not a day goes by without watching it.

Ok. I’m sick of this fandom so I have to spill it out: I’M TIRED OF YOU GUYS TELLING THAT THIS IS THE WORST SEASON OF SCANDAL JUST BC IT ISNT FOCUSED ON A DICK ANYMORE AND IM SO TIRED OF YOU GUYS SLUTSHAMING OLIVIA OR SAYING THAT SHE TURNED TO A BITCH JUST BECAUSE SHE WANTS POWER!!!!!!!

This is the first season that Olivia is focused on herself and her goals and I’m enjoying it so much. It is GREAT to see mellivia as a team and we need some girl power rep right now.

If it was a male character chasing power you guys would be all chill but when it comes to be a woman (women, if we include Mellie) you all get pissed. I really dont care about Olivia’s love interests, I do care about the storyline and this storyline is sO GOOD.

Also, give Olivia a break of toxic men in her life, ok? Let her be by herself for a moment, let give her space to realize what she wants and grow with nobody else saying what she can or can’t do.

Season five please.

Is any body else super annoyed that ABC has yet to renew Agents Of S. H. I. E. L. D. ? Like the fuck guys? I need to know that I will have more Philip J Coulson in my life after this season. I NEED IT. I need more of that history loving, sassy come backs throwing, laughs at his own jokes in the face of danger, heart eyes for Melinda May only mother fucker. Four seasons is just not enough.
