he knows and i just can't

I think the most beautiful thing about Diana is that she doesn’t fight the patriarchy.  She just flat out doesn’t acknowledge that it exist.  A room where women aren’t allowed?  Gender rules about sleeping with someone? Bruce grabbing her arm in a power play?  Diana’s all just, you’re doing what now? She’s a Princess and a Goddess, so way more powerful than you on any kind of scale.  She’s just gonna lol in your face any time the patriarchy comes up because she’s the most powerful person in the room at any given time, so she doesn’t have time for men to mess around pretending they have a say in anything she does.  

Let me tell y'all a story:

A few months ago, my Mother and I where leaving my cousin’s apartment at about 6:30 or 7:00 at night.

We waved them goodbye and my Mother began backing out the driveway–we weren’t even in the street.

Midway through she remembered this was a one way street and was going to pull back in so we wouldn’t be going the wrong way, but then A Cop car comes along, he gets out, and tells her she’s going the wrong way on a one way street. My Mother smiles and thanks him for letting her know.

Nevermind how rude this man initially was or how terrifiedI felt.
He decided to escalate the situation up by getting upset at my Mother…for smiling at him.

“You’re laughing at me,” He said, “You don’t have any respect for what I do!”

This grown man with a gun strapped to his side began accusing my Mother of disrespecting him when all she did was smile and thank him for letting her know she was backing out the driveway wrong.

Meanwhile, I continue to be terrified.

I had my phone in my hand and I had to decide whether or not to record him or not.

Not only were my hands shaking, but I had to consider if filming this would put us in even more danger.

What if he saw me and decided to shoot because he felt I was being disrespectful?

Fortunately, my Mother spent 30+ years as a teacher and has lots of experience dealing with irate children.

“Sir,” She said in her most soothing teacher voice, “I have nothing but respect for you. I teach for CPS, Chicago Public Schools, we’re both employed by the city–we’re on the same team.”

“You don’t respect me, you’re laughing at me. You don’t have any respect for what I do!” He continued, but my Mother persisted.

“I have nothing but respect for the Chicago Police. We have to work together, me and you are partners, we’re on the same team.”

And this went on for at least 3 or 4 minutes.

My Mother, a civilian, soothing the rage of a random Cop who obviously wanted trouble on this routine traffic stop–and there I sat paralyzed with fear in the passenger seat, praying to God that my Mother wouldn’t get shot.

Eventually, the Cop left us alone and my cousin approached our car to ask if we were ok.

My Mother assured him we were fine, dropped her Kind Teacher Persona and he and her talked about what just happened.

The Cop lingered for a little bit and then drove away.


I’ve been in so many scary situations and amongst them was nearly drowning; I have very vivid memories of my limbs going out, closing my eyes, and taking what I thought would be my last breath as I sunk beneath the water.

But that…that single interaction with an officer of the CPD?

When it comes to scary situations, I rank that extremely close to almost drowning…

anyone else kinda terrified you’ll never be able to hold a job in the future because of your mental illness

I had the sudden urge to draw them in Elie Saab dresses (x) (x) and I JUST—-

@thisshouldbegayer and I just began a mermaid AU, and I don’t know where it’s going, but this is how it started.

So we laugh about “it’s high noon” but listen. Matt Mercer voiced Shigure from Fire Emblem Fates, and I don’t think you guys realize how lovely his singing voice is and how well it fits Yusuke.

Akira is tortured every day.

Johnny please let Doyoung love his baby ♥♥

Can we take a minute and talk about how fantastic Harry’s voice sounds on this song?  It’s rich, it’s not strained, his technique is on point for rock.  his falsetto is clear and pure. The beginning in particular is clean and precise.    His belt at the end is open and fully supported.  His breath control is spot on.  And the little details like the way he transitions from chest voice to falsetto in the bridge on “will we ever learn?” is SO SMART.  He’s using such strong dynamics.  He has grown so much and I’m just so incredibly impressed.  And so incredibly proud.

All because they do not wish to see anyone else suffer the way they do.

Okay but are you a Hamilton person or an Usnavi person? Non-Stop or 96000? 21 Chump Street or Freestyle Love Supreme? Long haired Lin or short haired Lin? “Whaaaaaat?” or “No Me Diga?!”

Ty was silent, and in that silence, Kit thought of Ty’s headphones, the music in his ears, the whispered words, the way he touched things with such total concentration: smooth stones, rough glass, silk and leather and textured linen. There were people in the world, he knew, who thought human beings like Ty did those things for no reason—because they were inexplicable. Broken.
Kit felt a wash of rage go through him. How could they not understand everything Ty did had a reason? If an ambulance siren blared in your ears, you covered them. If something hit you, you doubled up to protect yourself from hurt.
But not everyone felt and heard exactly the same way. Ty heard everything twice as loud and fast as everyone else. The headphones and the music, Kit sensed, were a buffer: They deadened not just other noises, but also feelings that would otherwise be too intense. They protected him from hurt.
He couldn’t help but wonder what it would be like to live so intensely, to feel things so much, to have the world sway into and out of too-bright colors and too-bright noises. When every sound and feeling was jacked up to eleven, it only made sense to calm yourself by concentrating all your energy on something small that you could master—a mass of pipe cleaners to unravel, the pebbled surface of a glass between your fingers.
“I don’t want to tell you not to go to the Scholomance if it’s what you want,” said Kit. “But I would just say that it isn’t always about people trying to protect you, or knowing what’s best for you, or thinking they do. Sometimes they just know they’d miss you.”
“Livvy would miss me—”
“Your whole family would miss you,” said Kit, “and I would miss you.”
It was a bit like stepping off a cliff, far scarier than any con Kit had ever run for his dad, any Downworlder or demon he’d ever met. Ty looked up in surprise, forgetting the glass in his hands.
He was blushing. It was very visible against his pale skin. “You would?”
“Yeah,” said Kit, “but like I said, I don’t want to stop you from going if you want to—”
“I don’t,” Ty said. “I changed my mind.” He set the glass down. “Not because of you. Because the Scholomance appears to be full of assholes.”
Kit burst out laughing. Ty looked even more astonished than he had when Kit had said he’d miss him. But after a second, he started to laugh too. They were both laughing, Kit doubled up over the blankets, when Magnus came into the room.
—  so, let me know if there’s any heterosexual explanation for this por favor
