Orphan Black: A Summary

Look I’ve watched orphan black from the start and I am fully caught up but I still have no clue what’s going on so here’s what my small mind can gather:

Sarah: KIRA I LUV U WHY DON’T U LOVE UR MA (btw Rachel sucks)

Kira: fuk u ma I can heal myself I love u Rachel

Rachel: I’m bad no wait I’m good oh shit there’s a pencil in my eye okay I’m bad again but with a fuckin high tech eye also give me kira plz

Kira again: Rachel 😍😍😍

Cosima: I think I’m still sick? Am I? Idk delphine cure me also this camp is weird

Alison: I’m drunk and also high while being a wonderful mother oh hi kids want some mushrooms?

Donny: idk what’s going on ever

Helena: u are not sestra so u die now ok bye

Delphine: le cosima I love u but I’ll le backstab u a lot but only cause I le love you!! Le

Mrs s: you’re all fucking idiots where’s my gun

Felix: I just want to do gay art while being naked I didn’t ask for this

Art: I still exist kind of I’m here I guess??

my 58-year-old mother, who doesn’t particularly like action movies and knows absolutely nothing about superheroes, cried during the no-man’s land scene (and most of the second half of the movie) because she was so moved by seeing such a powerful positively-represented female character

Paint my dear, watch some TV, listen to music or just sleep (I beg you xD ) But please my child, relax at some point so I won't worry about you <3 You're an amazing bean and my favourite artist (and tumblr person) so take care of yourself and maybe doodle if you can't take it :D You're wonderful *mum mode deactivated* xD

……Yes mother XD

Ok!! Like and Reblog if you know that Wonder Woman is Bisexual

Ok this might be confusing. But my mother literally refuses to believe that Wonder Woman is Bisexual even though I have given evidence from officials. And it just makes me really mad. Mostly because my mother thinks that I’m saying I’m Pansexual because it’s popular to be apart of the LGBT and she has even said things like “Trans women should not be nominated for Woman of the Year” told me she would be disappointed in my if u was “actually gay” made very transphobic remarks without realizing she’s being transphobic, Using She/Her pronouns for my FTM Trans friend even after being told so many times to stop, saying “when do you want you sex change surgery” every time I do something that is not stereotypically feminine to try to make fun of me, etc. so to prove her wrong I’m going to prove to her that her Favorite Character ever is LGBT. I want to show her that it’s not just now that LGBT people are starting to exist it’s just now that we are being represented and more accepted in society. So PLEASE reblog and like so I can show my mother to prove her that LGBT people have always existed and to stop her from not realizing she’s being a little homophobic and Transphobic

Does Dan take after his mother or father more in terms of his wonderful, easy personality?

Totally his dad. 100% his dad. His mom Gets Shit Done, but cannot be described as easygoing. (She’s Marc’s fav. After Sarah. And Dan of course, his Forever Fav Riley. And human.)

Opinion | What happened when an Orthodox Jewish congregation went to a gay bar to mourn Orlando
The Orlando attack fell during Shavuot, a joyous Jewish holiday.

When our synagogue heard about the horrific tragedy that took place at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, it was at the same time that we were celebrating our festival of Shavuot, which celebrates God’s giving of the Torah.

As Orthodox Jews, we don’t travel or use the Internet on the Sabbath or on holidays, such as Shavuot. But on Sunday night, as we heard the news, I announced from the pulpit that as soon as the holiday ended at 9:17 p.m. Monday, we would travel from our synagogue in Northwest Washington to a gay bar as an act of solidarity.

We just wanted to share the message that we were all in tremendous pain and that our lives were not going on as normal. Even though the holiday is a joyous occasion, I felt tears in my eyes as I recited our sacred prayers.

I had not been to a bar in more than 20 years. And I had never been to a gay bar. Someone in the congregation told me about a bar called the Fireplace, so I announced that as our destination. Afterward, I found out it was predominantly frequented by gay African Americans.

Approximately a dozen of us, wearing our kippot, or yarmulkes, went down as soon as the holiday ended. Some of the members of our group are gay, but most are not. We did not know what to expect. As we gathered outside, we saw one large, drunk man talking loudly and wildly. I wondered whether we were in the right place. Then my mother, who was with me, went up to a man who was standing on the side of the building. She told him why we were there. He broke down in tears and told us his cousin was killed at Pulse. He embraced us and invited us into the Fireplace.

We didn’t know what to expect, but it turned out that we had so much in common. We met everyone in the bar. One of the patrons told me that his stepchildren were actually bar-mitzvahed in our congregation. Another one asked for my card so that his church could come and visit. The bartender shut off all of the music in the room, and the crowd became silent as we offered words of prayer and healing. My co-clergy Maharat Ruth Friedman shared a blessing related to the holiday of Shavuot, and she lit memorial candles on the bar ledge. Then everyone in the bar put their hands around each other’s shoulders, and we sang soulful tunes. After that, one of our congregants bought a round of beer for the whole bar.

Everyone in the bar embraced each other. It was powerful and moving and real and raw.

After that we moved to the outdoor makeshift memorial service at Dupont Circle. There, too, we did not know what to expect. But as we gathered around the circle, people kept coming up to us and embracing us. One man we met there told us that his daughter sometimes prays with us. Others were visiting from Los Angeles but joined in full voice, clearly knowing the Hebrew words to the song we were singing.

As we were singing, I looked over at some gay members of our congregation and saw tears flowing down their faces. I felt the reality that we are living in a time of enormous pain. But I also felt that the night was a tremendous learning experience for me. I learned that when a rabbi and members of an Orthodox synagogue walk into a gay African American bar, it is not the opening line of a joke but an opportunity to connect; it is an opportunity to break down barriers and come together as one; it is an opportunity to learn that if we are going to survive, we all need each other.

I don’t think this article got very much traction last year, but I wanted to share it again.

Happy mother’s day From...

Hmm… can someone help my with this? I need more mothers… preferably some that are not evil.

Comic Poison Ivy in the last 15 years: Hey you know, the whole man-hating evil seductress trope is kinda old and disrespectful and it’s time to recognize the potential of this complex and interesting character. We’ll focus on making her more sympathetic and less crazy. We’ll show she has a deep, real, and profound connection to the earth. We’ll show that she is struggling to maintain her humanity in light of a darkening situation and that she still feels compassion for human life, as it is also part of the earth. She will only apathetically kill people who are 100% irredeemable. She will have many moments in which she spares human life. She will have many complicated relationships with other women in the Universe, including Batgirl, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Black Canary, the Birds of Prey, and many others. These relationships will range from uneasy trust or anger to understanding and love. She will not show romantic interest in men and will not be a sexually driven character. She will be a member of many hero teams, including the Birds of Prey and the Justice League, even if there are missteps in the writing of the character. Most of the Bat-family will recognize Ivy as a grey-area case that must be handled on an individual basis and will acknowledge that her situation is centered around tragedy and loss of self. They will recognize that Ivy could very well be the thing the saves the entire planet. They will recognize that Arkham is making her worse, and will do what they can to reason with her. 

Wonder Woman will acknowledge that the Green and Mother Gaia chose Ivy as her protector and that she was wise to do so. (Sensation Comics #31)

Batgirl will show numerous moments of concern and understanding and will even acknowledge that if they were in another world, their relationship would be very different. She will value Ivy’s powers as a source of good and believes Ivy’s struggle stems from the flawed nature of humanity. (Batgirl Annual #2, various)

Batman will return to Ivy to ask her for help, knowing that when the world is at stake, she is a trustworthy ally to the Earth. (Swamp Thing) (Sensation Comics) (Detective Comics, various) (Justice League United) (Animal Man)

There will be many moments where the relationship between the part of Ivy that is still human and the part that is the Green struggle to cooperate or have complexities in their natures. (Cycle of Life and Death) (No Man’s Land) (Birds of Prey)

Harley Quinn will express implicit love for Ivy and in certain series, they will be in a canon loving relationship. This will not be subtext as it has been in the past. We will show an actual relationship between two women that isn’t just for eyecandy. (Harley Quinn series) (Bombshells)

Yes, there will be missteps in the canon as many different hands are working between many different series, but overall the character will have undergone a complete transformation that far exceeds the previous incarnations.

Every Media Outside of Comics, obsessed with an Ivy that hasn’t existed prominently in 15 years: u know, the slutty evil plant lady?

I saw Wonder Woman with my mom yesterday and during her big fight scene through the village I turned to my mom to see her reaction (I had already seen Wonder Woman once before) and I saw my mom was crying. Afterwards I asked her why and she told me about how as a child she would make sure to never miss the intro theme to the TV show Mash. There was one shot of a bunch of women in military uniforms sprinting and for her as a child that was everything. Women heroes, unsexualized, not for male consumption, just doing their jobs as bad asses. And she explained that Wonder Woman was just the same and she hadn’t realized how starved she’d been for it. She loved how Wonder Woman fought. She didn’t kick to show you her thigh or grab a man’s head in her crotch to spin him to the ground. She kicked in a way that brought her entire body weight down on someone, she kneed men through walls, and took machine gun fire. My mom said that every shot of Wonder Woman was filmed like she was bad ass. She wasn’t posed like she was pretty. She was posed like she was dangerous. And that made my mother cry.
