Energon in this series is so weird.



“When thinking of iconic romance, ask yourself if any imagery (paintings, photographs, film-stills) comes to mind that is not showing heterosexual couples? Probably not,” says photographer Braden Summers of his photo series of everyday gay and lesbian couples from around the globe.

"I’m sick of how bisexuality is erased in LGBT spaces. I get really nervous before any LGBT event, especially Pride. I feel incredibly sad and hopeless when gay and lesbian people call me insulting names. If gay and lesbian people don’t understand me – Continue reading Prejudice at Pride at Empathize This

This just punched me in the heart.

I don’t go to pride events due to this reason. I’ve gotten so much hate, and street harassment directed at me I just can’t deal with it. It kills me to say it, but I’ve gotten more hate hurled at me by gay men then I have from anyone else. It ranges from being called a “breeder” to horrible comments about my body-type and weight. 
I don’t understand, and it hurts. A lot. 

Same same same.

In my experience, there’s not a whole lot to understand. Being a member of one oppressed group doesn’t mean that you’re not complicit in the oppression of others - and a lot of gay men within the activist community are horrible misogynists. They’re going after bisexual women because they can get away with it. As a bisexual dude, I get hassled by some LGBT activists, too, but I don’t get it one-tenth as badly as bisexual women do, and you’re fooling yourself if you think even for a second that it’s not just bog-standard misogyny finding an acceptable outlet.



I realize that it’s a very common thing for men to tell a woman what their opinion on her body is. And to insist that she keep her body in the shape that is most appealing to him, regardless of how she feels about it. Even if she is not in a relationship with him. (It doesn’t matter if they are in a relationship or not). Even if she clearly said that she is happy with her body and doesn’t want to change it. Yes, this entitlement is very common. That doesn’t mean I have to tolerate anyone who displays it, especially from someone I previously considered a friend. *unfriends*


Does Cheetor ever learn his lesson?  I want to pull a Ratchet and hit him with a wrench.


I fucking love Willis right now.

So if Amber’s current boyfriend shacks up with her ex-boyfriend (yessss), that frees her up to go Superman on her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend’s Lois Lane (YES!).

I just have to figure out what to do about Walky.



okay, most of what i do re: harry potter is criticism, and hp is flawed in such a number of ways, but sometimes i just sit here and

i mean, you all have a comprehension of just how drastically harry potter changed literature, yeah? like. it revitalized it. it blew the literary scene apart. the new york times had to create a separate bestseller’s list for children’s lit just because harry potter existed. harry potter changed reading.

so many people on tumblr were born in the ’90s. when the first book came out, most of us couldn’t read. but we grew up in a world where everyone, everyone, everyone was reading harry potter, no matter how old they were; we grew up in a world where the most popular story in the entire world was a fantasy children’s book.

it’s sort of difficult to grasp, sometimes, the extent to which harry potter is not just a book. the extent to which what is basically a series of fun, interesting, and fairly good novels is such an enormous, enormous part of our lives, a cultural touchstone, a truly universal reference point, something so many people have shaped their lives around, a foundation for all of the stories we would read and watch for the rest of our lives— for so many of us, the first books we ever loved

the extent to which so many of us can’t call ourselves “fans” of harry potter, because it would like being a “fan” of, like, having lungs.

it’s not even about liking it or disliking it. it’s just a part of us.

I owe my literacy to Harry Potter.

This is pretty much what I suspected.
