Im tired of skinny white boys being the only gay couples in anything, like give me some black boys in love, give me trans boys of colour holding hands, give me dark skinned asian boys in love, give me some chubby boys holding hands, give me gay relationships where the boys have something other than a chiseled face and clear skin, give me gay relationships with boys who have acne and freckles and stretch marks, give me something else than skinny white boys making out shirtless p l e a s e

MLM Books by Male Authors

Little Men (2016) dir. Ira Sachs
“Hey. I’m not talking to my mother anymore. Why not? She said you can’t come over. Why doesn’t she want me over? I don’t know. I don’t think your dad wants me around anymore, either. I won’t talk to my parents, then, either. Really? Really. Not unless they apologize. It’s not gonna be easy, you sure you can handle it? I can handle it.
You’re a great friend, Jake.
You too.

  • Saeyoung: What's wrong, Saeran? Why are you looking at me like that?
  • Saeran: I just don't wanna miss it when you burst into flames.

anonymous asked:

I want oliver to be jealous. we've never seen jealous oliver and he'd be so good!

In this case, anon, I am Digg.

After Oliver Queen’s history of the past four seasons, when he tells Felicity this

I believe his jealousy has evolved - gone more civilized than caveman but still… he’s totally fine that she’s seeing someone else?

I don’t believe it at all. He can be somewhat fine with her being happy, but totally fine? 

Oliver, in the past, when it comes to Felicity, has seen the green eyed monster.

Green monster.

I’m really loving the theme lately with big budget film and TV projects in the ‘nerds and nostalgia’ genre having White Male Entitlement as the villain

like

Mad Max asked who killed the world

their answer was 'toxic masculinity’

Jessica Jones answered with 'rape culture’

and Star Wars threw in 'entitled, privileged white dudes with nostalgiaboners for eras of extreme oppression for everyone else’

could we ask for a more accurate unholy trinity, or a better group to be putting this shit on blast??
