and then i realized
my life revolves around people that don’t exist
When my mom’s out in public, she sends me pictures of lesbians she sees.
Jesus I envy that relationship.
this is like the time when my mum took me bra shopping and the girl measuring me up was a lesbian and my mum said to me “i’ll go take a walk around the shop so you can talk to this nice young girl” and gave me a look as if to say “chat her up”.
My mum tries to push me towards cute possibly gay girls and then disappears. She did it in Primark once and I found her hiding behind a pile of knickers, watching me.
i love all of your moms
When I was 17 I was convinced I was in love with the check out girl at the grocery store 5 minutes away from our house, so my dad went to get milk and somehow found an appropriate point in the conversation while buying a half gallon of milk to give her my number. Three days later she called me and asked if I wanted to come over “to watch a movie” and long story short my dad got me laid thanks dad.
That last story is worth reblogging

Muggleborns at Hogwarts
If something passes the Bechdel Test: Wow great okay.
If something does NOT pass the Bechdel Test: Don’t freak out — the test is inherently flawed and only takes into consideration a very select and narrow group of variables.
If something passes…

The Diversity Gap in the highest grossing science fiction and fantasy films. Sad, right? You can see the full study here.
from the infographic:
Among the top 100 domestic grossing films:
- only 8% of films star a protagonist of color
- of the 8 protagonists of color, all are men; 6 are played by Will Smith and 1 is a cartoon character (Aladdin)
- 0% of protagonists are women of color
- 0% of protagonists are LGBTQ
- 1% of protagonists are people with a disability
I never understood why the genre I love so much doesn’t love me back :(
I admit this broke my heart because…me, too.
I have to say that one of the most unexpected and amazing things about Medievalpoc is that I’ve discovered I’m not alone in feeling that way; that there is a whole community out here trying to change that.
Favorite Muggleborns headcanons (1/?)What is that INFERNAL CLICKING NOISE!!!

landscape with the fall of icarus - william carlos williams
#forever fascinated by the translations between mythology and history #the idea that the heaven-wracking events of myth #the murders and violations and revenges and glories; the blood and blades and fury #would register only as little & distant tremors in the landscape of human antiquity #how icarus’ wild doomed flight which dared the height & purview of gods could be just a dark flitting thing against the noon-bright sky #and his ruinous fall could be just a soft muted splash to another mortal ear #and how we overwrite events to give them a symbolic power #so that icarus’ flight becomes emblematic of the whole history of human daring and pursuit and endeavour and glorious failure #its resonance renewed every time it’s invoked within this fabric of shared cultural dreaming (elucipher)

An entire Gaza neighborhood is decimated within an hour by Israeli air strikes. The video is further proof that Israel has no regard for the life of innocent Palestinians.
Israel attacked Gaza’s only power plant on Tuesday, leaving the Palestinian territory’s 1.8 million residents with no electricity or running water and opened the possibility of an even graver humanitarian crisis.
After three weeks of violence between Israel and Gaza, more than 1,100 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli air and ground strikes. About 75 percent of Palestinian deaths have been civilians. Several thousand have been wounded and more than 100,000 displaced. Fifty-three Israeli soldiers have died, as well as three civilians.
Just look at the casualties. This is not a war, it is genocide.

U.S. Democrats plan to give Israel an addition $225 million for military spending. The same bill also cuts $1 billion of emergency funds meant to deal with the 50,000 undocumented child migrants held in crowded and unsanitary border facilities.
Israel already received $504 million for the joint U.S.-Israel Missle Defense Program for the Fiscal Year of 2014. That is not including the $3.1 Billion the Obama Administration spent on Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Israel for the Fiscal Year 2014.

People need to get angry now
there’s 15 year olds on this website who already know they’re asexual that is incredible just incredible when I was 15 all I knew was that I was broken and that something was clearly wrong with me. say what you want about tumblr but I think we can agree that spreading knowledge about alternative sexualities is something done really well here and to the benefit of so many.
When I was 13 my friends told me I was gay because I said I didn’t fancy boys.
When I was 14 I realised that I didn’t fancy girls either.
When I was 14, 15, 16, the word I had was broken.
When I was 17 I had asexual. And that’s so important.
Anyone that wants to say that kids shouldn’t identify themselves at a young age can ask an asexual, because almost all of us have stories like mine.
instead of a coffee shop au consider instead a hell’s kitchen au and let me explain u why:

- if they lose the challenges they have to do manual labor
- think of the possibilities this presents
