This is a tumblr with things that I like.
Sometimes it's dumb, sometimes it's poignant, but such is life.

aight let me say this tho. when biphobic lesbians say things like ‘i don’t wanna be anywhere a guy has been” or the more cissexist/transmisogynistic “i don’t wanna be anywhere a dick has been”

you’re. kind of treating a bi woman like a used object. and totally qualifying her based on her past experiences. and deciding what does or does not impact her worth and purity. 

and ur a piece of crap.

Oh my god, fan-casting of a non-existant King Arthur movie:
Arthur: Idris Elba
Guenevere: Aishwarya Rai
Lancelot: Jason Momoa
Percival: Lucy Liu
Morgana Le Fay: Lupita Nyong’o
Mordred:John Cho
Gwain: Shahrukh Khan
Urther Pendragon: James Earl Jones
Igraine: Madge Sinclair
Merlin: I honestly can’t think of an older actor right now. Maybe Jackie Chan, but he’d definitely have to wear a grey hair wig.

To get an idea of what this casting implies, try to imagine the outcry if a major Hollywood studio released a King Arthur film starring Idris Elba, John Cho, and Lucy Liu, with only one or two of the knights of the Round Table being played by white actors.

Whitewashed ‘Exodus’ cast sparks a Twitter riot
Remember when Noah’s screenwriter explained that everyone in his movie was white because it was “mythical,” and because white people are apparently universal stand-ins for the human race?
Directed by Ridley Scott, the forthcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings stars Christian Bale as Moses, Joel Edgerton as Rhamses, and Aaron Paul as Joshua.

friend-zoning guys is horrible. it is disgusting. funzone them instead. send them to a small childs park so they can cry with the other babies when they dont get what they want.

Until recently, I have had a tremendous amount of shame about the bullying I experienced as a child.
Whenever something would happen and my mother would find out, she would yell at me and say,
"Why didn’t you fight back?! What are you doing to make them treat you like that?"
So I felt like it was my fault.

There is a genuine dangers of my tears shorting out the computer and turning this entirely into a Laverne Cox fanblog.

The whole INTERNET should be a Laverne Cox fanblog.
