Hello. I’ve heard you’ve been invalidating a male character’s past straight relationships in order to make your slash ship sale. 

Could I interest you on the subject of bisexuality.

It’s free! It’s friendly! It’s perfectly workable with canon! It stops misogynistic fic tropes in order to slash ship in it’s tracks.

Invest in bisexuality today!

Bonus: Buy today and receive a free addition of pansexuality for no extra fee!

Clint came out as bi accidentally at a meeting.

While Fury was filling everyone in on the Winter Soldier situation, a picture of Bucky came onto the overhead screen to which Clint said “Why do the hot ones never come after me?”.

Lets just say, Tony goes out of his way to make things as awkward as possible now that Bucky lives in the tower.

Elle Woods was hollering back before the movement. This is why i love this movie. It’s so progressive. Elle is a femme feminist who comes by it the hard way. She doesn’t change for the bookish people, the elitists, or for the feminists. She just does what she needs to do, and what she wants, even when at first it was chasing a boy. Then the movie drops the romance. IT DROPS THE ROMANCE. chick flicks don’t do that. Emmett asking her out is a footnote at the very end. And this whole time, she is classy, and lady like, and has pride in herself and her work. She’ll go to a costume party as a playboy bunny, but like hell will she sleep with her professor for an internship. Elle is my feminist role model

Same.

I remember listening to my DAD defend Legally Blonde. An uncle was saying “Oh look, it’s that stupid movie again.” as he flipped through the channels. My dad responded with “Oh yeah, that movie where the blonde girl with great grades works really hard to get into pre-law, studies hard and proves herself to her peers and bosses while maintaining her integrity and not sleeping with her boss? What a terrible message to send girls.”

Also, I love this movie because Reese Witherspoon. 

And don’t forget that she has serious female friends and wins the case by way of her specialist knowledge of so-called “feminine things” that no one else takes seriously enough to even bother with.

The movie also passes the Bechdel test.

LET’S NOT FORGET that even though it starts with a situation where two girls are rivals for the same guy, they BOTH choose to ignore the social codes (and hollywood bylaws) that tell them they should be cat-fighting and trying to one-up each other, and instead they realize that they make good working partners and better friends and screw rivalry, AND ALSO HAVE EACH OTHER’S BACKS RE: WORKPLACE SEXUAL HARASSMENT. And that it portrays sororities as places where women can learn to work together and respect each other and help each other out, which sets the stage for the way Elle treats everyone she meets for the rest of the movie. OH AND IT HAS A FAT SIDE CHARACTER WHO OVERCOMES EMOTIONAL ABUSE, IS NEVER FAT-SHAMED OR USED AS THE BRUNT OF A FAT JOKE, AND LANDS THE HOTTEST MAN IN THE ENTIRE FILM.

Thor interrogates Darcy after she calls Beyonce a “queen”.

What realm does she rule?

How come she’s never been to Asgard?

How large is her army?

Eventually, Darcy lets Thor borrow her iPod and he listens to all of her music. A few weeks later, Tony gets them backstage passes and upon meeting her, Thor dubs her the “true queen of Midgard”.

Amy Rose asked:

I am working on a story from the perspective of a group of characters trying to overtake their government. They do this through what is basically terrorism. The thing is that I am afraid that people will think I condone these acts… am I overthinking this, or am I right to be worried? 

Hello there, writerly friend~ ♥︎

I touched on this subject a long, long, time ago. But since it was part of a Writing Advice Blitz, I didn’t go very much into depth— so let’s do just that! For this question, though, I think it would be more effective to take it in reverse.

I am going to warn you that I am going to start off by talking about Society, since this is one of those questions that have very little to do with writing— and more with the writer (and the society they live in).

Is it rational to fear what people may think of you based on your writing (and art)?

Society programs people to be afraid of a ton of things. Society tells people that they need to go to college if they want to be happy, and that they need to get married if they want to be happy, and that they need to have children if they want to be happy. Of course, people forget that this example of ‘happiness’ is an illusion. It’s not happiness, it’s acceptance.

And this is the entire basis behind our fears.

The fear of doing anything that is different (such as art) is the fear of proving to the people around us that we are indeed different, and thus we don’t deserve to be accepted. And anyone who has ever been bullied in their lives knows what happens when people who are accepted have fodder to justify being cruel to those who are not.

I think that part of becoming your real self is realizing that you have been programmed, and that the ‘happiness’ that has been taught to you (acceptance) is not true— because you, and only you, can define happiness for yourself.

Now, let’s look at your question again.

Is it rational to fear what people may think of you based on your writing (and art)?

Of course it is. Society programmed you to be afraid of doing anything that is different. Anything that may empower people to hurt you. It’s as rational as being afraid of heights because it reminds your brain that you are not safe, and that a single wrong step can end you.

Just like… writing a story about a group of terrorists may give people plenty of reason to think that you are not a good person—

Except not.  Let me explain.

Should I be afraid that people may assume things about me based on my writing (and art)?

I am going to tell you right now that anyone with enough interest in reading knows pretty darn well that there is a disconnection between the book they are reading and the person who wrote it.

Let me repeat that.

Anyone who would rather read a book is CERTAINLY smart enough to know that words on the page and YOU are two different creatures. It’s as simple as that. Everyone else, the people who don’t read books, don’t matter at all— because they have nothing to do with your line of work. I don’t know anything about being a butcher, but I don’t think it would be wise to assume that just because a person happens to cut meat all day that this makes them more likely to be an axe murderer.

So, no. You should not be afraid of what people will assume of you based on your writing— because I have written some pretty weird stuff, and that doesn’t make me a psycho, it just makes me a writer.

As that old Dr. Seuss line goes:

"Those who matter don’t mind, and those who mind don’t matter."

As a final note, if you are someone who has been shaking their heads the whole time, and you believe that there are things that “Writers should not make books about, especially terrorism” I want to say that I get what you mean. I do. I get it— but your opinion is immediately invalidated (for me) because you would rather live in a world without Les Miserables (which is really, a story about a group of terrorists trying to overthrow their government). And I am sorry but I could not fathom a reality without Les Mis. I can’t. Sorry, it’s just not possible :P

today this guy told me that my dress made my ass look fat (he sad it as a 'compliment') and obviously since it was 8:30 I was too tired for that shit and I replied with 'saying my ass is fat wont make your dick any bigger' and when he tried to defend himself saying his dick was big enough I told him that it doesn’t count if he shoved two thirds of it in his personality and he just looked at me completely defenseless AND BASICALLY I STOLE THAT LINE FROM HERE BUT I SLAYED

You can’t just start the clock on 9/11 and forget 50 years of unjust oppressive Western foreign policies in the Middle East.

Medhi Hasan

Thank God someone finally said this. I’m so sick of stating that Western intervention and invasion of other countries fuels terrorism only for people to respond 'They did 9/11 first!' 

In 1953 the UK & the US staged a coup of the democratically elected leader of Iran and installed a dictator who was more to their liking. Today the US continues to support brutal dictators (such as in Saudi Arabia) where it suits them to do so. Palestine has been occupied for decades. The list of Western imperial foreign policies over the past decades could go on and on.

9/11 was not only only a result religious extremism and it certainly was not because 'they hate our freedoms.' Terrorism is often primarily politically motivated and anyone who is serious about preventing it had better take some fucking notice of this fact.
