HOLY SHIT, ATTENTION ALL COSPLAYERS.c
Does your boyfriend or brother spend a lot of money on skin and hair care products? Does your dad spend much time at the hairdresser or beautician?
In your city’s daily paper do most of the political news items feature women? Are most of the stories in the business section written by and about women? Is there a special ‘Men’s Section’ filled with celebrity gossip, fashion and beauty tips?
When you watch a big sporting event on TV, are the athletes usually women? When you watch female sporting teams are there hot guys in tiny outfits cheering for them on the sidelines?
Do girls you know talk openly about getting off while watching porn? Do they boast about their sexual conquests?
When you’re at the food court, do your female friends happily gobble down a large burger and fries combo while your male friends pick at a salad and sip diet coke?
Do the majority of the fathers you know spend most of their time at home washing, cleaning, cooking and taking care of their kids? Do you often hear mothers refer to looking after their own kids as ‘babysitting’? Have you heard women talk about earning brownie points for cleaning their own house and washing their own clothes? Are you sick of men going on about how hard it is to balance work and parenthood?
Are your male friends afraid to walk on their own at night? Do they avoid drinking too much in case they get raped? Do they dress to protect themselves from attack and always carry their keys poking through their knuckles? When they complain about all this do your female friends shrug and tell them that’s just how the world is?
If the answer to all of these questions was yes, wouldn’t that mean something was wrong? Is that still true if the genders are reversed? Does it matter?
Take a look at a new store on Etsy. Not many items, but they are adorable! I look forward to seeing what this young woman will bring to Etsy :)
This is such an important moment and it shouldn’t be glanced over. This is the first time someone in the entire series has said that Raven is beautiful. Look at her reaction to those words in the fourth panel. For a moment she looks absolutely vulnerable. In her experience people have always fawned over and adored Starfire for her beauty. But for once someone acknowledges her and says that she’s beautiful. As much as Raven says physical beauty doesn’t matter this shows that a part of her does believe it’s important.
This is why Malchior was able to manipulate her so easily. He knew exactly what she wanted to hear. She wanted to feel like someone understood her, that she wasn’t creepy, and that she was beautiful. And when he made her feel special she gave him everything he asked for without question. And in the end she paid dearly.
This episode should be seen by all teenage girls. This is the stuff boys will tell you in order to get what they want. And if someone as smart as Raven can get taken advantage of then obviously you’re just as at risk. Have confidence in yourself no matter how you look or what you like and when a guy tries to trick you with cheap words you’ll know better.
But don’t forget, not all boys are like Malchior. Some of them are like Beast Boy; the guy who no matter what you do and how bad you screw up he’ll still be there and tell you that you matter. He won’t ask for anything more than some of your time, some of your attention. He just wants to see you smile without any other ulterior motives. And he’ll let you know that even when you feel completely alone in the world you’re not. You’re only as alone as you choose to be.
Are we still a fandom or can we be classed as a cult yet?

Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, the Cultdom is climbin up yo window, snatching yo salt up
Tryin’ ta convert ‘em. So ya’ll need to hide yo kids hide yo wife and hide yo husband ‘cause they’d be exorcisin’ erryone up herre.
Today my grandpa found out that you can have pizza delivered to your house and he looked like he had just witnessed the second coming of Christ
Update: He just ordered a pizza with “everything you’ve got” and after he hung up all he said was “what a time to be alive!”
I fucking love my grandpa
THIS WASN’T SUPPOSED TO GET NOTES WTF
omg no but I THINK ABOUT THIS ALL THE TIME
I like to think that maybe they stumble through some kind of enchanted wardrobe or something (because the show would totally want to make a Narnia reference come on) and when they fall out the other side they’re still in the bunker and they look at each other like ‘what?’ and then Cas walks in and asks what they’re doing on the floor they breathe a sigh of relief because okay everything is normal after all
but then Cas reaches down to pull Dean up but doesn’t just stop when he’s standing, he pulls him right up against him and runs his other hand through his hair to shake the dust from the wardrobe out of it and Dean is too shocked to even back away and Sam was complaining about being left on the floor but now his eyes are the size of saucers because Cas is shaking his head fondly and carding gentle fingers through his brother’s hair
"Whatever you were doing has made you filthy, Dean Winchester." Cas says with shining eyes, completely oblivious to the shocked expressions on the brothers’ faces, "You better have a shower before bed, we already changed the sheets three times this week."
He winks and Dean goes bright red, looking to Sam for some sort of explanation and leaning away from the hand in his hair, but not quite bringing himself to stop the fingers threading between his own. Sam’s jaw almost hits the floor.
"Uh Cas-" Dean starts but Cas suddenly frowns and lifts their entwined hands up to his face to stare accusingly at Dean’s left hand
"Where’s your ring?"
What the fuck?
"My what?” Dean asks, starting to wonder what kind of weirdo world he just fell into, and Sam actually gasps when he sees the gold band on Cas’s left ring finger.
Cas’s grip on his hand tightens and shit he looks really fucking mad
"Your ring,Dean.” He growls, gesturing to his own. Dean’s just wondering what the hell is going on when Sam surges forward suddenly to clap Dean on the back with the world’s biggest shit eating grin on his face
"You mean his wedding ring, Cas?” He says, ignoring the murderous look Dean throws him and the irritated one from Cas,
"Of course, Sam."
"The one you put on his finger?”
Cas looks at Sam like he’s gone completely mad, “Obviously.”
"The one he totally cried over?"
"Hey!" Dean offers weakly and Cas’s expression momentarily softens as he smiles lovingly over at him and Sam starts to wonder why the hell he didn’t notice this before because, yeah, this universe’s Dean and Cas seem to be happily married but hell if this Cas doesn’t look at Dean in exactly the same way that their Cas does. Like he hung the goddamn stars.
"Yes, Sam." Cas sighs, looking very much like he is getting tired of their shit, "His wedding ring. Where is it?"
"Cas, we’re not-"
"He’s getting it engraved!" Sam steps on Dean’s foot before he puts it in his mouth and both he and Cas turn to look at Sam with nothing but confusion on their faces.
"Yeah, he uh, wanted it to be a surprise but uh…yeah. He sent it off just now. You know…" Sam mentally crossed his fingers, "For your anniversary."
And thank whatever God still exists because Cas completely fucking melts and Sam is really starting to feel like he’s intruding on a really private moment.
"You did?" Cas asks, eyes bright and watery and Dean finds he really really doesn’t want to wipe that expression off his face. Ever. So he shrugs awkwardly and lets out a breathy chuckle
"Uh, yeah. I, uh… surprise."
And then Cas is flinging his arms around Dean’s neck and kissing him like it’s their first kiss (which for one of them it is) and like it’s their hundredth and Dean can’t help but melt right into it and Sam has to physically tear them apart and drag Dean with him back through the wardrobe.
When they stumble back into their own universe, Dean’s lips are swollen and his hair is all over the place and his face is so red Sam can’t help but double over laughing.
When Cas appears at the door, drawn by Sam’s loud laughter, Dean goes even redder and tears start streaming down Sam’s face
"What is going on?" He asks, head tilted and eyes flickering between them
"Oh nothing," Sam gasps between breaths, "Dean just came out of the closet."
I LOVED THIS SO MUCH IT HURTS
please please please keep writing

Clearly one slide had a link which is here (there’s trigger warnings for child abuse, pedophilia, rape, incest)
I would also like to thank this lovely blog for helping me get into the comics and learn more about them. They also encouraged me to post it here instead of just presenting it in school.
mother of high quality gifs….
HIS JAW DID THE THING, SOMEBODY SEND HELP.
Jaw lines will be the death of me.
WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING
GOD BLESS YOU THIS JUST GOT EVEN HOTTER
No Straight Pride: Why is there a Gay Pride?
Video here: [x]
This is important.
Imagine a wall full of circular holes, that circles can keep walking in and out of with no difficulty.
Now imagine that the triangles manage to get the resources together, after years of not being able to fit through the circle’s holes, to drill a single triangle space into the wall.
Now imagine that the circle — who previously supported the triangle’s efforts because they are well-rounded (har) and value equality — comes along and sees the construction project. But instead of being happy, they get angry.
“Well, I won’t be able to fit through your hole!!!!” the circle cries.
“I helped you get the drill!!!!” the circle shrieks.
“Make it fit me too!!!!” the circle demands.
The triangles, barely holding it together enough to get a triangle hole together, stare at the circle in confusion.
“You have all the holes you need,” the triangles explain. “This is for us. You don’t need to fit through our hole, too.”
“YOU’RE BEING UNEQUAL AND HURTING MY FEELINGS!” the circle wails. “I DON’T SUPPORT YOUR HOLE IF IT DOESN’T FIT ME TOO. GIVE ME MY DRILL BACK.”
“It’s not your drill, it’s our drill. You helped us get it, because you said you cared.”
“I ONLY CARED WHEN I THOUGHT YOU’D MAKE A HOLE EVERYONE COULD FIT THROUGH. YOU’RE PERPETUATING INEQUALITY!!!”
“Why is it up to us, the small group that has never been able to fit through the wall at all, to make a hole everyone can use? Why isn’t it up to you, the people who have been able to cross back and forth at will for years? We just want to see the other side; why are you yelling at us?”
“I DIDN’T ASK TO BE BORN A CIRCLE, OMG. I’VE HAD TO WORK HARD ALL MY LIFE TOO. YOU’RE JUST BEING BIGOTED AGAINST ME BECAUSE OF SOMETHING I CAN’T CONTROL, JUST LIKE EVERYONE IS AGAINST YOU.”
“You are interfering with our project and asking us to comfort you while we’re trying to make progress. Please leave.”
“I’m going to tell everyone about this,” the circle warns. “Nobody will support you now.”
“Apparently nobody ever did,” the triangles sigh, getting back to work.
It’s kind of sad
That we have to draw comics using colorful shapes
To explain systematic inequality to people
