the a does not stand for allies

reminder that reblogging/sharing cute posts about autistic people and their “amazing talents” is not the same as standing up for the rights of autistic people and absolutely does not make those of us who were bullied for being autistic feel any safer around you 

just because you know that Autism $peaks is shit and stimming is a thing doesnt mean you’re protecting us from social structures that have punished us to traumatic degrees for longer than we’ve had a name

its no different than reblogging an LGBT+ Ally post like it doesnt make you a real ally for putting a rainbow on your icon, real allies recognize the social structures that inhibit the underprivledged and work the break those down and raise up those being targeted and discriminated against

please raise up autistic voices, stop calling people who act a little different “weird” or “freaks,” stop using ableist slurs, stop letting teachers and parents and classmates shame autistic students. you can make a difference by educating yourself and actively making those subtle changes in how you view people and treat people that makes the world a little safer for autistic people

Superman in “Love is Love”

Guys this is huge. This is fucking massive.

Look at that.

The red and blue boy scout, the man of steel, the man of tomorrow, the character that is responsible for the comic book superheroes as a whole , the FACE of the DC Universe and the greatest Superhero of all time…

Is holding an LGBT flag  standing tall and proud

This isn’t just Batwoman or an Archie character , not even Wonder Woman, no, this is Superman, the man that stands for the American dream, for Truth and Justice.

Does that mean that he is gay and the comics haven’t shown it yet? That he is a straight ally?

Honestly, I couldn’t care less. This is a huge thing regardless, and I can’t believe its true.

You know, if Soma does die, at least Ciel will finally experience some fucking consequences for his actions. It’ll be the first time since the Jack the Ripper arc that Ciel will have to deal with people close to him dying suddenly without his consent. What with this on top of Lizzy’s unwillingness to return home and her implied knowledge about the contract, it seems like this’ll be the arc where all of Ciel’s platitudes about “standing on a pile of dead allies” will finally be put to the test.

To Team Chrom

that was fucking hell-

Every time you guys turned the tables on us,I was jumping up and down


tHe sTrEsS you guys are straight up tough,And it was a fucking HONOR fighting against ya’ll

Let’s all join forces in the end to take down Lucina,and beat the odds.

I believed that we could always become friends after war just like Chrom does. And it stands true now.

You made great opponents,so I would love it i we could all be great allies as well.

But let me just say one more thing

SsHiT jESuS I sWeAr i hAvE gRaY hAirS noW-

iT wAs sO goD dAmN iNtEnSe

I had no fucking idea who was gonna come out on top and you guys made it fun and a challenge ((jEsUs))

And Thanks for such a great match Team Chrom!

one thing that really annoys me that men do, is they try to pit women against each other. like if a dude does something sexist, and you point it out, he’ll just tag one of his friends who will jump in and be like “I’m a girl and I don’t think it’s sexist, therefore you shouldn’t either! My friend is the nicest man in the world and in fact you should be praising him because he’s the greatest feminist ally to ever exist! How dare you accuse him of doing something misogynistic, that’s impossible! anything he says or does is never misogynistic no matter what it is because he’s beyond criticism!!”

and it’s really awful how they divide women from our sisters like this, because like if he’s your friend he’s expecting you to stand up for him because that’s what friends do for each other and he’s counting on the fact that his value as a (male) person through friendship matters more than the facts of the situation.

heres a lil thing for @alternatestridersweek that tells u basically nothing other than i dont draw hal often. like at all

i just want them to stand next to each other and smile. bc im basic like that

its because of the hair. im bad at the hair. and also literally everything else.


okkkayaaayyyy but lets for a second talk about the cheekiness of the writers because they told us the kiss was coming. they fucking told us through the beautiful unicorn of georgi popvich

“You don’t have to say anything just stand by me,” yuri says in the parking garage. and throughout georgi’s performance, that’s exactly what victor does. But the music is all about how “I’ll save you now. I’m coming, you’re not alone.”

And then Georgi admittedly makes it a bit weird by promising Anya he’ll kiss her and the music reflects the sentiment by being like “No matter what, I’ll kiss you now.” And Georgi emphasizes this by saying “No matter what, I’ll always be your ally.”

and then we get this image of my babes and they look slightly awkward but victor’s there anyway and I STG victor has already made up his mind that whatever the situation he’s gonna mf-ing save/kiss yuri and yeaahhh 

they didn’t even try and hide the fact

Hezbollah soldier saluting and guarding a church in Syria! “We’re in a very dangerous situation,” he said. “The only people who are protecting us are the resistance of Hezbollah. The only one standing with the army is Hezbollah. Let’s not hide it anymore.” Nasrallah said Hezbollah does not expect its allies to convert to Islam or create an allegiance to the group’s ideals. “They accept us as we are,” he said. “They do not impose on us anything. When there’s an occasion, they come to our children’s birthdays. The people here accept that Hezbollah comes and helps.”

The physician does not come to the sick man and say, “You fool! How did you get this way?” He does not berate the sufferer for lacking strength. Even the person who has willingly brought harm upon himself finds in the physician an ally, a true helper, one who offers care and hospitality — not an accuser or judge. The physician — at the least the virtuous one — does not shame the ill, the hurting, the broken, the diseased, even when poor habits of living or risky choices have precipitated their decline. This is because his mind is fixed elsewhere, on envisioning, somewhere beyond, behind, and beneath his patients’ present infirmities, the wholeness and health that could replace them. Instead of fatalism or apathy, he exercises hope. He looks backward only for the sake of moving forward. He is compassionate. He takes a stand for the transcendent value of human life. He fights for it wherever he sees it threatened.

And so it is with Christ, our divine Healer. He seeks our good. He seeks our renovation and repair. While not ignoring the causes of our troubles, his labors are restorative, not punitive. He wields a scalpel, not a sword. He knows our histories, he sees our wounds, but in his able, healing hands these are not determinative or predictive of our fate. His interventions go deep; they recast futures. He sees in us possibility, redeemable substance, souls still fit for long-lost paradises.

hey so my school is forming a GSA and I really want to be part of it. The thing is I'm a closeted trans guy and thinking about going to the meetings is giving me crazy anxiety...Any advice?

Well I mean GSA does stand for “Gay Straight Alliance”, you can always just say you’re an ally.

You can also go with some friends if you feel like that might help too.

Followers, what are your thoughts?

Lacey and Stila - do you often send your kid off to a sleepover with his cousins? And does Lacey's sister return the favor?

“Are you sure they’re going to be all right?” 

Lacey rolled her eyes. 

“They’ll be fine, Stila.”

“I’m just not used to having this many small beings in the house.”

“They’ll be fine, Stila. And you’ll be fine too. Besides, Ally’s taken Bae overnight a couple of times now, so it’s time we let her have a night off as well.”

They were standing in the living room doorway, watching Bae and his two cousins as they watched TV from the blanket fort that Lacey and Stiltskin had spent most of the afternoon helping them to create. When Lacey had told Bae that his cousins were coming for the night, he had pleaded with her for them to be allowed to sleep in a blanket fort in the living room and pretend that they were camping on one of the many exotic planets that Stiltskin had visited on his travels. Now, they were gazing rapt at their favourite TV show, Space Crocodile Sammy, completely unaware of the adults’ presence, and Lacey couldn’t help but smile, and be thankful that her family had stuck so close together.

How do you imagine the first fight between Mordo and Stephen going?

Hi Nony! :D Someone else brought this question up awhile ago. Like, almost word for word XD

It still stands ^_^ I just really want Mordo appearing suddenly with the villains and blindsiding Stephen, almost killing him but at the very last moment he doesn’t and instead just sends him away from the fight.  

And now I’m thinking of another scenario. Maybe Mordo keeps him prisoner to try and convert him while protecting him from other villains who want to kill him? I can see him telling his “allies” that he’s keeping Stephen around to break him til he does exactly what they want. When all the while he’s protecting Stephen. Our favorite doctor uses his captivity to try and convince Mordo that what he’s doing is evil. They go back and forth about their differences until finally someone caves.  U_U But that is simply a poor girl’s shipping fantasy.
