Based on „Imagine Loki’s reaction when you go to visit him in his
cell for the first time. He’s expecting you to be happy to see your
husband again but instead you start yelling and swearing at him.
That’s when Loki remembers why he married you – you always speak
your mind.” by @imaginemarveluniverse

capable of holding back his

recognized your silhouette.
It’s been months since the last time you met due to your trip, and
he almost forgot how stunning you could become with loose locks of
hair flowing behind you and a confident look
adorning your features, just as if
you owned every marble stone you were stepping at. You were a
princess even before he married you.
Loki opened his mouth.

You didn’t care.
come back home after a very long, very lonely trip,
expecting at least a warm welcome, maybe a feast or a fancy dinner,
and what do I get instead? The whole palace is talking only about my
dear love, who came up with a brilliant idea of treason, mass murder,
and starting a regular war on the Earth. Did I forget about anything?
Oh, right. You didn’t even bother to tell me anything!” you
shouted out the last sentence, shutting up the whole corridor. Every
prisoner was looking at your fragile little figurine in a wonderful
dress that didn’t hide your true self anymore.
Loki smirked. He missed you.
“Darling, I don’t think it would be a good idea to write out
plans like that in a simple letter…”
you think it’s okay to
not even inform me of your plans, so
I have to hear everything from your own mother, your brother, and all
of my servants?!” your voice echoed through the stone walls.
“This is not a good place for a conversation like this…”
“Really? What a surprise – I actually thought that being a
prisoner meant no leaving your cell. I’m so stupid, aren’t I? I
made the same mistake as last time, when I thought being together
meant no secrets!”
Loki took a deep breath, raising his hands in a calming gesture, even
though he would calm down a real storm easier than you. Feeling all
eyes on the two of you didn’t help either.

every right to be. But at the same time, you still loved him –
Loki could see it in the way you looked at him, in the way you
clenched your fists and in the way your lips trembled. And you were
his, with your anger, your fierceness and your honesty. You would
never lie to him and that’s why you felt so betrayed by his
have any of y'all saying hes rude literally ever met brendon… he didn’t press charges against an actual stalker… he politely moves out of his dream house and sets up a PO box so y'all stop stalking him but he can still get gifts… if u have a problem with him use something that’s actually a problem and him drinking some beer and smoking a joint isn’t a problem
I love it when you have memories attached to music like whenever you play that one song and you’re immediately taken back to the first time you listened to it or that one album that reminds you of a season or time in your life
If you’re on this website (or a human alive today) there’s a really good chance you’re afraid to call your Senator/Representative because you don’t know how the phone call will go. We’re trying to remove some of the mystery around calling your elected representative to show you a few different examples of first time callers leaving a comment with their Congressional office. It’s so easy!
On this call, you see Victoria learning that sometimes you have to call a few different offices to get through. You should also know that if you’re not calling from a big state like New York or California, you’re much less likely to have this problem. Either way, on average even the long calls take less than five minutes. Just make sure you call during standard work hours. Take a bathroom break to make the call if you have to. Promise it won’t take too long.
Please don’t forget that Asian American immigration history exists and is being used as precedent for a lot of gross policies, like directly with Japanese Internment making the Trump Admin think Muslim Internment is an option. Don’t forget that even President Obama erased our immigration history in his farewell address when he compared immigrants of today to the Irish and German and Poles and said nothing of the Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, South East Asian, Vietnamese, “waves” of immigrants literally imported to work the fields bc they would take a lower wage. Don’t forget about the refugees that fled the Vietnam and Korean and other wars and regime changes that came here to start from nothing and are now our nail salon jokes. Our history is full of disgusting immigration acts created by the US govt and they have the gall to pat us on the head and call us a model minority.
Don’t let them get away with it. History is supposed to teach us not to do bad things again.
On Friday, the Trump administration took its anti-press rhetoric to the next level when several outlets, including the New York Times and CNN, were blocked from attending an informal briefing with White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
Other outlets including the far-right Breitbart and the Washington Times were allowed in, according to the Hill, one of the outlets that wasn’t permitted access.
The administration’s actions on Friday directly contradict how Spicer previously said the press should be treated.
Back in December, he told Politico’s Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer that the Trump White House would not take the authoritarian step of banning reporters. Read more (2/24/17 3:22 PM)

[Trump] is uncomfortable sleeping outside of his own bed, which I know sounds strange to say about a 70-year-old leader of the free world, but you’re talking about somebody who during the campaign, most nights — not every night and there were times when it was not feasible — but he would fly home from pretty far distances. … He would fly home to sleep in his own bed. He is a homebody, and he’s incredibly provincial and he is approaching the job in that way.

I think what irks me the most about patriarchal theory is that, when one points out the myriad instances in which men suffer (e.g. suicide, homicide, workplace death, homelessness, etc.), feminists will invariably either deny the existence of these issues or will backpedal and say, “well the patriarchy hurts men, too.” The former claim is deplorable, and plainly so. But the latter is equally wrong. As well-intentioned as it sounds (and often is, as many feminists do mean well), it’s nothing more than a backhanded way of saying it’s men’s fault that they are suffering.
And that sounds an awful lot like victim blaming to me.
