The comments on any article about feminism justify feminism…and frankly I’m starting to think that the comments on any article about misogyny justifies misandry

Sweet On You

Bakery AU. Mark is Mark, Eduardo owns a bakery/café near the Facebook offices. Mark does not have time to have a thing for him, but he totally, totally does. Sadly for Mark’s continued enjoyment of a harassment-free existence, Dustin is still Dustin and is entirely devoted to his causes of a) getting Mark laid, b) acquiring all the gossip, and c) acquiring all the baked goods he can. Featuring novelty shaped cookies, frosting in places frosting should never be, and ~feelings~.

Costume design on Doctor Who: Clara and the Twelfth Doctor.

Looking at Clara and the Doctor in the first episode of season 8, the similarities between their outfits are obvious. He’s wearing a white shirt with a prominent collar and no tie, in a more severe version of Clara’s lace collar. Then there’s the black/white/red color palette, and the fact that he’s wearing a cardigan rather than a waistcoat underneath his jacket.

To me, this link is a clear sign that intentionally or otherwise, the Doctor imprinted on Clara after regenerating. Although if you look at her cardigan, you’ll see that it’s patterned with bow ties — a callback to Eleven’s signature accessory. She’s still looking back to the Doctor’s previous incarnation, whereas the new Doctor is calling out for her attention.

“All of these people on television, some of whom I have enormous respect for, it unsettles me to hear them say, listen, we the United States have to ‘do something’ in Ukraine, we have to ‘do something’ in Syria, we have to ‘do something’ in the waters around China, we have to ‘do something’ in Iraq, we have to ‘do something’ about ISIS. What they’re talking about are combat operations.

“My first question to anyone who’s on television saying ‘We have to get tough, we have to put boots on the ground, we have to go to war in one of these places’ is: I will hear you out if you tell me you are prepared to send your son, your daughter, your grandson, your granddaughter to that war for which you are beating the drums. If you aren’t I have no patience with you, and don’t even talk to me.”

“Those of us in journalism, and I include myself in this, we have a lot to answer for about what we did do and what we didn’t do in the run up to the war in Iraq. We didn’t ask the right questions, we didn’t ask enough questions, we didn’t ask the followup questions. We did not challenge power. I am concerned that once again as the war drums begin to beat and get louder and louder that there will be a herd mentality of saying, ‘Well, we have to go to war in Syria, we have to go to war in Ukraine.’ I don’t think it’s an overstatement to say that we need to be thinking very very carefully and seriously about this, and journalists have a special responsibility to at least ask the right questions.”

"At what point does the inner life of teenagers, as expressed routinely and normally through the naturally hyperbolic language of Tumblr culture, become accessible enough to the rest of us for us to stop treating them as foreign bodies? The answer to this question affects our ability to tackle the problems teens face fairly and without hyperbole. On the subject of fangirls, it’s even more important to acknowledge that empowered female spaces are what give adolescent women the capacity to fight back against a society that constantly seeks to disempower them, and worse, to sexually objectify them. Until that empowerment becomes the default, it’s probably safe to assume that there’s an entirely different reason fangirls scream: They do it because they know that when it comes to public perception of their identities, they’re fighting a losing battle."

Last words of unarmed black youth gunned down by law enforcement. 

"There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys. Guns aren’t for black people, either.”

if you live your whole life and then die without making a purposeful choice to become a white ally then American racism becomes your legacy.
