i'm allowed to say 'tho' tho

[On seeing himself as Captain America for the first time]: Terrifying. I think the first time I saw it was back when I was still pretty insecure and a little apprehensive about taking the role. So it was a real dichotomy. There was simultaneous joy, but at the same time, a deep fear. That’s eroded over time, and now it’s very familiar. It feels very comfortable. It feels great now, and damn, if I had said no, I would have been the biggest fool on the planet. 

Yo just like to mention

Tumblr likes to call any type of fiction with heavy topics “problematic”. Basically saying writers aren’t allowed to write about murder, rape, pedophilia, kidnapping, forced relationships, abuse, ect, even if it’s not romanticized or anything just because it triggers then. Writers are allowed to explore certain genres and topics, as long as they are aware that it’s wrong. I’ve seen interesting yet abused characters all over the place because of writers that aren’t afraid to trend on heavy topics. They don’t have to write in the little box you confine them to. Writing is art. It’s a creative expression that an author should be allowed to explore. If you don’t like what they write. Don’t read it. If you’re easily sickened and disturbed, stay far away from genres with heavy topics. You aren’t a bad person for staying away from things that could seriously make you relive a traumatic experience. For me, those heavy topics help me get over my personal trauma. It helps me, but it won’t help everyone. But if you’re out there, confining writers to only write about certain topics, posting hate about them, and complaining non stop about what they write, then you’re a dick. Don’t stop people from exploring certain topics. A lot of times, writers can learn from writing about heavy topics because of the piles upon piles of research they have to do to make their story worth anything. So basically, stop bring a dick.

make people like Ahmed Merabet the face of French Islam, not the gunmen

don’t even learn their names

know and talk about Ahmed Merabet, the Muslim police officer killed in the Charlie attack

don’t hold charlie hebdo up as a pillar of free speech

but don’t insinuate that anyone deserved to die

don’t expect any Muslim to apologise; expect that the gunmen are isolated radicals


i assure you that you can assume what he guessed before link assailed him with that swatter.
