#and then he dies #and she starts killing people

Not to mention the whole damn town gets cursed

he doesn’t just DIE, he’s lynched because the Gaston-equivalent sees them together and the whole town is horribly racist and that’s why she starts killing people

this subplot was better than the main one lbr

i wanna date someone and live with them in a shitty apartment but be happy about it because we are happy together and we can decorate it with stupid dorky posters of shit we like and figurines and art and we can cook weird recipes we found on the internet and eat them and watch cartoons even if the food is gross because we made it and we’re perfect

My immediate life goal.

In response to an ask I just got. I wonder if people who are like:

transetheralbrimwylf:

"T-that character isn’t canonically trans!"

realize that yes I know :V

"B-but you said.."

I know.

Do you really think I don’t realize that pretty much all media isn’t meant for girls and women like me?

That even though the character is similar in a ton of ways to…

Oh maaaaaan.  I totally dig Mari as a trans girl!  The rest of the post is gold too, I’m just SUPER interested in this idea now.  Yessss.

You should probably rephrase that as 'cis people do not experience gender dysphoria'. I know it's implied by the context but sometimes it helps to clarify arguments like that to stop others nit picking or being obtuse.

 yes yes

Ok I have a question for you on this, what about non-trans people who experience dysphoria over their sex? Because while I don’t consider myself trans to say that I’m cis erases the fact I have GID/severe sex dysphoria. I feel a bit stuck in limbo and confused right now.

You can consider yourself cis, that doesn’t make you it though. Although it sucks to accept it, but if you have sex dysphoria, you’re trans.

But idk your situation, so I’m not going to tell you what to do with your life.

I thought “trans” was short for “transition”, so people couldn’t call themselves trans if they didn’t transition.

Weird how with self-described truscum, the definition of the day is always exactly whatever lets them tell other people how to identify themselves.

The sad thing is that attitudes like this are what puts pressure on people like butch lesbians to try to transition, which inevitably fails because they’re not men and transition isn’t something you do to ~*become*~ a gender, it’s what you do to outwardly express what you already are.

But when they de-transition and become a rallying point for lesbian radical feminists, somehow it’s our fault (that is, trans women, and more specifically, trans women who don’t subscribe to this One True Way B.S.) that so many people go through this.

And even more weirdly, the so-called truscum also blame us. I mean, I would tell people in the situation of this person that they know themselves better than I do… well, I wouldn’t even say that. It goes without saying. If someone tells you two things about themselves (they’re cis and they experience some amount of dysphoria)… a stranger just told you two things about themselves. Who are you to argue with them?

I could say I ate a whole pizza and I’m still hungry. Are you going to turn around and say, “No. If you ate a pizza, by definition, you’re not hungry.” because you can’t imagine eating a whole pizza and still being hungry? You don’t know my metabolism. You don’t know what the pizza was like. Maybe the definition of pizza I’m working with encompasses things that are beyond your experience.

In fact, isn’t that more likely than the fact that I’m lying or just plain wrong about being hungry?

i hope a straight boy sees this and gets pissed off

how fucking tiresome. It’s not your pits that are gross, it’s your “edgy” attitude about them. And also your face, your gross disgusting face. Please do the internet a favour and don’t post any more selfies or write any more text posts. In act, just smash your router, go for a walk outside, tell your parents you love them, play with a dog, drink a glass of water. Do anything but be on the internet and contribute to the cultural sewage that is tumblr.

success!!


As a straight cis boy, I can say, unequivocally, that straight cis boys suck.

Tennessee Passes Mind-Boggling Ban On Rapid Bus Transit | Wired 
Tennessee lawmakers overwhelmingly voted in favor a bill that bans the construction of bus rapid transit (BRT) anywhere in the state.
The impetus for the vote was a proposal to build a $174 million BRT system in Nashville called The Amp, which would’ve ran on a 7.1 mile route and served rapidly growing neighborhoods across the city. There’s a more detailed summary of the project over at The Tennessean.
Although BRT has been shown to revitalize economies and reduce congestion, opponents of The Amp voiced concerns about the safety of unloading bus passengers along roadways and whether private land would be used to build dedicated bus lanes.
After the vote, Amp opponents revealed that the conservative group Americans for Prosperity, founded with the support of brothers Charles and David Koch, had lobbied in favor of the bus ban.
The legislation is startlingly specific: Senate Bill 2243 forbids “constructing, maintaining or operating any bus rapid transit system.”
The Senate version of the BRT ban also forbids buses from “loading or discharging passengers at any point within the boundary lines of a state highway or state highway right-of-way not adjacent to the right-hand, lateral curb line.” Though the House struck that provision and sent revised legislation back to the Senate, it would still require special approval from the Tennessee Department of Transportation and local government bodies.
It’s a hard line, and an unusual one.
Normally, the easiest way to kill a public transit project is to pull its funding. Alabama, Arizona, Hawaii and Utah all forbid state funding for public transit systems, for instance, but even that isn’t foolproof: Utah’s taken on some major commuter rail expansions lately, and Phoenix uses county tax revenues to pay for its transit system.
Voters in Arlington, TX famously voted against public transit funding for decades, and an acrimonious debate in Cincinnati almost derailed a streetcar project, but both those cities now have service.
A formal ban on BRT is about the only way that Tennessee could ensure that The Amp didn’t get built as intended. Already, the project seems to be watered down. Nashville’s mayor—a proponent of the project—has ordered a study that would redesign the system to avoid using dedicated lanes (PDF).
Now, drivers in Nashville can look forward to increased traffic and longer commutes. But at least those pesky buses won’t be in the way.

I don’t understand. How do you LIVE in a city with no public transit?

While the context and narrative itself sets up obstacles, the film often uses visuals to help express Clarice’s status in the order of things. A recurring visual motif is Clarice surrounded by taller men, dwarfed and brought down by their stature. Yes, Jodie Foster is a short woman, just a few inches over five feet, but the film often exaggerates that discrepancy to express her challenge in overcoming a patriarchal society that literally looks down on her. […]

The film camera also never objectifies Clarice. Throughout the film she is presented as an object of the male gaze by the characters in the narrative, but the camera does not assume this perspective of the male look until the end of the film. It’s at this point then that Clarice punishes and banishes the male gaze for objectifying her. [x]

WHOSOEVER HOLDS THIS HAMMER, IF SHE BE WORTHY, SHALL POSSESS THE POWER OF THOR.

ACTUAL GODDESS NATASHA ROMANOV

I always knew she was one :D

As is so often true of comics, a lot of the awesome is in the details. Natasha can’t move the Hammer when she first reaches it. What makes her worthy at the end when she apparently wasn’t worthy just seconds before? Look at panels 2-3 again. Natasha’s got that big ogre right on top of her with his club already going back to strike … and instead of shooting it to save herself, she uses her last shot to bring down the flying reptile that’s chasing that fleeing shuttle. That act of self-sacrifice in the face of certain death is what made her worthy.
