holy guacamole, it's the info section! things about me: twenty-five. female. vegan. awesome. insert sexual orientation here. i like: books. improv. theatre. thunderstorms. pearl jam. photography. x-files. doctor who. buffy. murakami. parks and recreation. poetry. harry potter. gillian anderson. alex kingston. viola davis. spontaneous planking. activism. feminism. humanism. writing. poetry. cooking. coffee. and bad words. cunt.


wish I could be more cutting, droll, and sardonic every time I see the rush to assure men that feminism helps them just as much.

but, I’m more or less just really terrified of the men who need to know how not hurting women will help them before they stop.

Darren Hunt of Utah

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…


He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

(( I am a cosplayer in Utah. This horrible occurrence happened a few towns over from where I live.  Darren Hunt -was- cosplaying when he was shot. Does the news mention this? No.

This is a photo of what Darren was wearing, it was snapped moments before he was shot:

It looks to me like he was cosplaying Samurai Champloo.  And according to his family, the sword he was carrying was a decorative art piece, it was a prop!

I want to know how much of a threat a cosplayer could have been, with a prop sword, who was shot in the back?  The police claim he lunged at them with the sword. Lunging requires a forward facing motion. So, why was he shot in the back?  This is not okay!  ))

they shot him in the back six times. SIX TIMES.

and the two cops who shot them are on fucking paid administrative leave right now

This reminds me of when Viggo Mortensen left the lotr set in full costume and he was literally walking down the street in rags muttering gibberish (elvish) and swinging his sword around.
Did he get murdered, shot in the back as he ran away?
No. No he did not.

Here’s a sure-fire way to know that you hate women: when an incident of intimate partner violence in which a man knocks a woman unconscious gains national attention and every question or comment you think to make has to do with her behavior, you really hate women. Like, despise.

There is no other explanation. There is no “I need all the facts.” There is no excuse. You hate women. Own it.

Now, you probably don’t believe you hate women. You probably honestly think you’re being an objective observer whose only interest is the truth. You are delusional.

We have this problem in our discourse around the most important challenges we face where we feel we have to be “fair to both sides.” But sometimes, one of those sides is subjugation and oppression. If you’re OK with legitimizing that side in the interest of “fairness,” you’re essentially saying you’re OK with oppression as a part of the human condition. That’s some hateful shit.

The Doctor’s insistence that Robin Hood can’t be real is a very specific departure from previous Doctors, especially Eleven. At first glance, it seems to be just a way of differentiating them, but it goes deeper than that; the Eleventh Doctor lived something of a fairy tale, with his child friend Amy who he appeared to like some kindly wizard one night. But he didn’t exactly do well by Amy, did he? Poor Amy Pond, left behind and then left again, and then zapped back in time where he could never lay eyes on her. The Doctor did a lot of damage to the people he loved in his last incarnation. Is it any surprise that he doesn’t believe in heroes and fairy tales anymore?

Someone said “Are you really so stupid to think that Africa has the same technological advances as us? If they did they would probably have clean water and not live in houses made of sticks and mud. Get over yourself and stop being so ignorant.”….. Below is a tiny collection of images of the Africa they refuse to show you..













I’m sorry you’ve been made to believe that the whole of Africa is poor, I really am..

Reblogging for those of you who think Africa is only what the media and movies portrays it to be
