why is this so specific

anonymous asked:

Why is wanting Sana to date disrespectful of her religion?

bc it makes assumptions about her sexuality and talks about her in romantic/sexual situations, which from what I understand by talking to Muslim girls, is really really not ok to do considering her religion. im not 100% sure why or the specifics but i know i shouldn’t so i dont.

Now whoever is giving Michael and Lindsay shit over the sex reveal can fUCKING STOP IT

for your own peace of mind, maybe dont pay too close attention to the lyrics of some christmas songs.

this is the christmas card im sending out. steve didnt know what text i was gonna put behind it when he drew the picture.

(You can get this on redbubble!)

and it turns out that clint, who has been humming christmas carols for weeks now, doesnt actually know any of the real lyrics, and has just been making them up as he goes along. this is his latest masterpiece:

Winter Soldier’s Gunnin’ You Down (To the tune of Santa Claus is Coming to Town)

You better watch out, you better not cry

You’ll probably bleed out, I’m tellin’ you why

Winter Soldier’s gunnin’ you down

He’s got a hit list, he’s starting a fight

He’s clenching his fist, it’s shiny and bright

Winter Soldier’s gunnin’ you down!

He sees you when you’re sleeping

He knows when you’re awake

His aim is really fucking good and he’s gonna assassinate

You better watch out, you better not cry

You’ll probably bleed out, I’m tellin’ you why

Winter Soldier’s gunnin’ you down

He’s yanking out wheels and firing guns

If you were smart you’d probably run

Winter Soldier’s gunning you down!

Winter Soldier’s gunning you down!


Gosh, that part in Much Ado About Nothing when Beatrice and Benedick read each other’s secret love letters and admit their love is always so cute. But, like, too cute. 

That’s more like it. That’s the response I’d expect of two hyper-critical sarcastic dorks in love.

korra: i have to find my own path as the avatar.

katara: i know you do. aang’s time has passed. my brother and many of my friends are gone.

zuko *flies by on his dragon*: KATARA WHAT THE HELL

toph *pops up from a hole in the ground*: QUIT TELLING EVERYONE WE’RE DEAD!

katara: sometimes i can still hear their voices…

Can I just remind people that many bisexual and pansexual people, myself included, use gay as an umbrella term for all people attracted to the same sex and we use it as a descriptor for our and everyone’s same sex attraction because it’s specific to that part of our identity. So please stop policing me for using gay to describe my and characters’ same sex attraction. Using gay as an umbrella term is not the same as invalidating and erasing a bi/pansexual person’s identity.


Padme: Senator Chuchi, you should put the Jedi’s head on your lap while he’s unconscious! I can’t hold him because then people might start to suspect.

Riyo Chuchi: I’m sorry Padme, what might people susp-

Padme: Chuchi this is urgent!!!

It's okay to be a man who...
  • Is emotionally sensitive
  • Is honest about having feelings
  • Is open about having flaws
  • Likes cute and pretty things
  • Likes dressing in cute and pretty things
  • Is delicate
  • Is elegant
  • Is unsure whether it’s okay to be those things
  • Dances and sings with enthusiasm and heart
  • Empathizes with the feelings and experiences of others
  • Admits being wrong
  • Cries

And it’s understandable that you’re afraid to show all of that to a world that seems determined to erase it from you.

No matter what they say, you are who you are.

For almost ten years now, every time a science fiction or fantasy author mentions a character from a made-up culture eating using a “utensil” in the singular,

(e.g “I raised my utensil in acknowledgment,” “Grallezar gestured across the camp with her utensil,” “Fuckhands McMike poked listlessly at his food with a utensil, never bringing any to his mouth.”)

My brain has filled in the detail that they’re actually eating with sporks, but the author was of course too embarassed to record this specifically.


This weeks episode of Idea Channel is about Overwatch fan art. Specifically, it’s about why there is so much erotic and romantic Overwatch fan art (beyond, of course, “har har the internet is for porn #rule34″). 

It includes lots of pieces by fan artists who submitted their work to me or our graphics artist / art director Leah. Much of that work came from people here on tumblr and all of it is incredible. Thank you so much to everyone who sent something in. You can find a collected list of all submissions and links to more work in the description of the video.
