[insert witty feminist banter here]

capitalism is bad in theory and a crime against humanity in practice

“"Cutoff culture", "the friendzone": these are just neologisms used by men to mask or soften the reality that they have been – and have the right to be – rejected by women. They’re attitudes stemming from the assumption that men are owed something by women. Guys in the friendzone should be expecting sex for their kindness; otherwise what’s the point of hanging out with girls? Men whose exes broke up with them and then cut them off deserve explanations as to why, as detailed as they want, for as long as they want them – regardless of the fact that their frightening post-breakup behavior should be explanation enough. And when they’re not busy making up new words to describe their interactions with women, men with these hangups are giving existing words new meaning: "stalking" becomes "tenacity"; "pathetic public wailing" becomes a "romantic gesture"; the intense desire to not be rejected is actually the intense feeling of love.”

“Well, this feeling that you’re having right now that ‘I’m supposed to be all things’ is a feeling women have every day and have their whole lives, so you’re just starting to experience it now. Like, how can I be cool and tough and also sweet, and y’know [women] have to deal with all those juxtapositions every day, but I’m glad you’re finally experiencing it as a white male.”

in honor of a pretty nifty follower milestone thingy that i’m approaching, i’m gonna do another giveaway! but this time i’m going to offer my meager fic-writing or photoshopping talent.
the winner will get one of two choices!
option 1: a 3-5k word fanfic of your choice! you get to prompt me with as much or as little detail as you want and i’ll write a fic that’s at the very least 3-5000 words long. sometimes i’m wordy so it might go over but it definitely wont be less. feel free to prompt a prequel/sequel/interlude of something of one of my existing stories or come up an entirely new prompt.
here’s my ao3 page so you can get a sense of how/what i write
and here’s a tag on tumblr where i share silly little thoughts/ideas/drabbles that might also give you food for thought
rules for option 1: 

1: it has to be a (marvel) ship i at least kind of know and ship myself. the big one is obviously steve/tony (or pepper/tony), but i’m also cool with quite a few other ones (check out my ao3 page for other pairings i’ve written!). please feel free to message me ahead of time to ask about specifics ships if it’s not one on my ao3 page!
2: i’m cool with writing pwp (haha OBVIOUSLY) but please no bdsm, always-a-[opposite gender], or abo. i just don’t feel competent or well ‘versed enough in those things to do them justice. once again, if you have a question about a specific trope/kink, feel free to ask!

option 2: a fake movie poster and plot synopsis! that’s… pretty much what it says. a photoshopped movie poster along with tag line and a paragraph plot synopsis. prompt with as much or as little detail as you want! look at the following examples to get a better idea of what i’m talking about:
example 1
example 2
example 3
example 4
example 5
rules for option 2:

1: same as before, please choose a (marvel) ship that i ship at least a little :)
2: that’s it! :D

general giveaway rules:
1: you must be following me. this is to thank people who put up with my shenanigans on a daily basis :p (this also means no giveaway blogs or whatever, i’ll be checking on that).
2: you must be an active blogger. this means you need to post/blog more than once a week. sorry, but my last experience with giveaways kind of soured me on this :(
3. i’m guessing i’m going to hit the milestone about a month from today (aug 3). so this contest will end on wednesday, september 3rd. 
4. likes and reblogs count (no limit), and i will be choosing the winner via random number generator. your askbox must be open and you will have 2 days to reply to me with your option and prompt before i move on to someone else.
sooo yeah! there you go :D let’s do this!

Georgia cops fired Taser 13 times ‘as a cattle prod’ to make tired man walk before he died

owning-my-truth:

atane:

Black life is not valued.

"A Georgia man died after police shocked him with a Taser as many as 13 times because he said he was too tired to walk due to a foot chase, his attorney said this week."

13. Times.

the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this

because fifteen dollars an hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them; more than you deserve

^That commentary is very important.

“In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.”

Dear STFU-Moffat and associates,

From now on, I insist you describe Steven Moffat as “Emmy-award winning writer Steven Moffat.” Just to make sure you’re being…

toska [tohs-kah]”

(noun) An untranslatable, Russian word – Vladimir Nabokov describes it best: “No single word in English renders all the shades of toska. At its deepest and most painful, it is a sensation of great spiritual anguish, often without any specific cause. At less morbid levels it is a dull ache of the soul, a longing with nothing to long for, a sick pining, a vague restlessness, mental throes, yearning. In particular cases it may be the desire for somebody or something specific, nostalgia, love-sickness. At the lowest level it grades into ennui, boredom.”  (via les-espaces-et-les-sentiments)
