Okay so imagine the villain has captured a girl the protagonist cares about and is all like “I’ll kill her unless you give me the macguffin!”
And the hero’s like “that will never happen! I love her and she loves me! Right?”
And the girl’s like “um…this isn’t the best time.”
And the protagonist screams she’s a friendzoning whore and abandons her.
And the villain’s like “fuck that guy” and teaches her how to walk in thigh-high leather boots.

SUCCESSFUL HELP WITH INDIVIDUAL EDUCATION FOR LEARNERS WITH DISABILITIES
You would think that teenagers would be the most rudest customers when really it’s mostly old, middle-aged people.
Correction, middle-aged Christian people. I never had as many issues with people as I did with the damn after-church crowd.
By far the stupidest criticism of the new Thor is ‘no where in Norse mythology is Thor a woman, stop messing with mythology.’
Right, because Norse mythology is just fucking filled with stories about Thor hanging out with Iron Man and Captain America at the Avengers Tower.
Also, in actual Norse mythology Loki turned into a horse, banged a horse, and had a little horse babby that Odin rode around on, and NO ONE wants to add that to the Marvel U. So let’s avoid talking about actual Norse myths mmkay?

Is that the creature from Animorphs? Because that looks like the creature from Animorphs.
choosing a gender in an rpg more like do i wanna be a girl or do i wanna romance girls
This sign needs to be in every store ever, as large as it can be displayed.
all that’s happening is that beauty companies have realized that “progressive” and “empowering” advertisements garner more publicity and create more brand loyalty than the old-fashioned “you’re ugly if you don’t buy our product” advertising. it has nothing to do with ethical capitalism or social trends. the beauty industry is just trying to make money.
But that’s fine. The companies are trying to make money and have realized that not being utter shits is a good way to do that. I don’t care about their motivation as much as I care about them not utterly wrecking things for profit.
I’ll break it down— when I got into Marvel fandom I basically suffocated under the weight of Steve/Tony. There were more fics about Tony’s four-panel lady AU alter ego “Natasha Stark” than there were of Jan, or Carol, or Natasha or any of the obvious underlined female Avengers. It was obvious and uncomfortable. I didn’t like seeing my favs legated to the background of the Steve and Tony show that was the 616 circa Civil War, I didn’t like seeing that perpetuated in fanworks, either.
What I was told, was to write it all better, to be whatever change I wished to see in fandom, because it was unfair to blame other fans for falling into whatever they liked. It is true that under these criticisms of fandom’s focus on m/m slash and its side effects there’s often a lurking distaste for whatever teenage girls find enjoyable. I’m sure my bitter memories of those early days are turned by my own tastes, and that they are not entirely fair.
Yet we still write about our love of women characters, and how they are mistreated by canon, but less about the characters themselves, we see less meaning in the fall of their hair, their nervous ticks repeated in gifsets, less about the pain of their origins or the terrible specificity of their triumphs. There is just less written about female characters, on the whole. And I’m not really comfortable grinding my gears at canon while giving fandom a free pass. If being a fan means being critical of the source material, surely we have to watch ourselves, too. Being a fan is wonderful, but it is not sacred.
I was told to be whatever change I wished to see in fandom, and I’ve tried. I have made over 2,000 posts here, and maybe they are not all good, but I have tried. And I have seen this fandom grow and I have seen more and more enthusiasm about women characters. Bobbi Morse appreciation week! A new Storm ongoing! The #carol corps! And on and on forever and ever amen, I am grateful.
But for all this, the most popular post I have ever made is only popular because someone added cute spur-of-the-moment Tom Hiddleston tags to it, because tumblr used it to talk about Thor. And that is something worth thinking about.
The last paragraph is the key one IMO.
The idea to display the pets inside the store started in Singapore as a collaboration between Ikea and two animal shelters, according to Business Insider. Together they formed the project Home for Hope.
Will American Ninja Warrior crown its first female champion at the top of Mount Midoriyama?
Kacy Catanzaro became the first woman ever to complete a city finals course, in Dallas, and the first woman to ever make it to the finals in Las Vegas. If she manages to conquer Mount Midoriyama she could win the $500,000 prize and the title of American Ninja Warrior.
I hate how much I love this show.
What kills me here is how EASY she makes it look. I’m sure most of the people reblogging this and the video posts don’t watch Ninja Warrior normally, so they probably don’t realize that you usually see massive guys straining and struggling to get past each obstacle. She’s tiny, but her strength and control means she manages to have a near-perfect run. That’s incredible.
