Yea it’s clearly our “generation that’s making homosexuality a trend.” Seriously, pisses me off when people say that. look at this! It’s always been around, it’s not a trend, it’s real. It’s beautiful.
These are really beautiful images.
History Lesson: In America from about 1700-1920 there was a social rule that said that women did not have a sex drive. According to men, all women ever were asexual and only ever had sex because their husbands wanted it and as a good doting wife they would open up for him. That said, lesbians flourished in this time! Because it was believed that women did not have sex, when two women would share a house and finances together (called a Boston Marriage, look it up!) nobody thought anything of it. Because clearly they werent homosexuals since clearly women were incapable of being independently sexual. The more you know!

I’m not very good for this because I straddle the S/N and T/F pretty evenly, but I usually get INFJ, so here:
- Yue and Roku from Avatar: The Last Airbender

This is what the BBC are couching as a ‘boisterous and good natured celebration.”
This is what The Guardian are calling “some young men” who “appear” to be violent.
This is the nasty fucking scar that English attitudes leave on a country and that won’t be properly addressed by the press or any politician in Westminster.
It also happens to be a nonprofit.
In response to the league’s controversial handling of video footage showing NFL player Ray Rice physically assaulting his then-fiancée, Janay Palmer, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) introduced a bill on Tuesday that would remove the NFL’s tax-exempt status and allocate those funds toward domestic abuse prevention programs instead, according to NJ.com.
"Stopping domestic violence is a national priority that requires long-term, meaningful investment,” Booker said in a statement, Politico reported. “This common sense update to our tax laws would save more than $100 million over 10 years — money that can instead be used to pay for vital support programs that have seen their funding slashed in recent years due to sequestration and gridlock.”
Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) wants the tax exemption gone, too, but for a different reason: The league’s refusal to make owner Dan Snyder drop the derogatory term “R[edacted]” from the Washington, D.C., team. On Tuesday, Sen. Cantwell also announced a plan to introduce legislation that would eliminate tax exemption for the NFL, saying the league “needs to join the rest of Americans in the 21st century,” The Washington Post reported.
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) isn’t satisfied with the status quo, either.
"Taxpayers are losing $10 million a year subsidizing these tax loopholes for professional sports leagues that generate billions of dollars annually in profits,” Sen. Coburn told CNBC on Saturday. He sponsored 2013’s “PRO Sports Act,” which would repeal tax-exempt status for certain professional sports leagues. The bill is currently in the Finance Committee.
The league’s classification as a nonprofit may spark some to question how, exactly, that can be, when NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell earned a reported $44.2 million in 2012, according to NJ.com.
What the fuck. Why the hell is a professional, profitable, utterly socially unnecessary SPORTS CONGLOMERATE non-profit??
WOAH WOAH WOAH WAOH WHATTTTT? WHY THE FUCK IS THE NFL A NONPROFIT

Here is what to do with some old, broken terracotta pots!
A guy at a princess store in Disneyland was asking me if I related to Merida in any way and I was like
“I don’t know man. I’m more of an Elinor.”
And he busted out laughing.
What I love most about this movie is that shows that being a princess is not wearing a beautiful dress, marrying a prince and live happily ever after, but a job, a hard job with duties and responsibilities were a lot of people depend on you
being the Lady of a medieval estate was SUCH AN IMPORTANT FUCKING JOB AND SO FUCKING FULL OF HARD WORK WHICH MEDIEVAL MEN ACKNOWLEDGED TBH
(one problem with perception of medieval gender roles is that most of the people who were writing, especially those who were writing HISTORY, were CLERGYMEN who had never been married and lived in a weird situation cut off from the way the rest of the world worked and had like no actual life experience with the real world - and then popular culture’s idea of it has been heavily informed by VICTORIAN choices of who and what to translate and popularize)
upper class medieval women were expected to run and manage the entire estate that they got from their husband (or that they already had in their own right through inheritance or as their marriage portion), a job which was acknowledged as being way difficult and requiring a wife with strength and fortitude and business sense if you wanted to be a successful person
they were the HR managers of households that might have over a hundred people in, and tho a duchess or a queen would certainly not go to the store to do the household shopping, and she probably had a steward to assist her, it was ultimately her responsibility to know what things were needed for that household, to make sure that the appropriate people obtained those things, to oversee the use of the household materials, to make sure that EVERYTHING got done so that ALL those people could live and work smoothly. they wrote letters and managed the business of the estate and networked with other members of the nobility for both important game-of-thrones political reasons and for smaller more personal reasons like ‘that guy has a really nice deer chase, so if i send him some marmalade from our garden, he might send some venison back as a return gift”
even in lower class households mom managed everything and women were basically considered to be shrewder and have better heads for that particularly kind of business than men and choosing a wise wife was the best thing you could do for yourself as a man who intended to be successful
they were like hands-on CEOs and shit yo and don’t get me wrong society was sexist as fuck and they were limited as hell in what they could do and everything was classist beyond belief but no way was being a noblewoman just a matter of sitting up a tower looking pretty & the contributions that they made are so important
also, the ladies of castles were responsible for defense when their husband was away at war (which happened a lot), so while personally participating in battle was unusual (though not entirely unheard-of) they did often find themselves in strategic command. and in wartime they frequently functioned as a sort of de facto logistics officer.
oh, and has anyone mentioned diplomacy. because an arranged marriage is only the START of a princess’s diplomatic career. the alliance she forges with her marriage is one she’s responsible for maintaining her entire life. unless she decides to go ahead and take over the country; that’s been an option too from time to time. :D
suddenly i really want to see a disney movie about a princess AFTER the wedding — forging a political bond with her new husband, defending the castle, sending troops and supplies to make sure he comes home from the war, reading secret reports from her spies in the enemy’s court… *swoon*
And I’ve tried to touch on this with Merida, because ALL OF THIS? THIS is why Merida has absolutely ZERO desire to get married or (eventually) become Queen. Because it means her life - every second of her free time - going down the drain as she becomes more and more tangled up in running the castle AND the kingdom.
(This is also why Elinor’s such a freaking BAMF, she’s got this shit down, man.)
hey sooooo remember how the police in ferguson were going to start wearing body cameras
actual quote from the article: “This gotcha discipline that we have with the dash board cameras is what we’d be afraid of,” Roorda said.
basically “any tangible way of holding us accountable for abusing our power is what we’d be afraid of”
I work with my acting coach to help me get into character and do pronunciation drills and tongue twisters to help me deliver lines.
I envision the script as a story in my mind, memorize the entire thing and have it play out. It helps me figure out where my character needs to go.
You have to be serious, but you also have to make your own time to have fun.
I tell jokes, I laugh with the people on set, I play with the director. Then I try to pay attention and see what I have to do.
When I need to cry, I think of very sad things, mostly about animals. My favorite animal is a polar bear. They’re going extinct, and I really don’t want that to happen.
