OMG AT THE END WHEN HE JUST SCOOPS THE CAT’S HEAD TO HIS CHEST.
had to shut a bitch down today
And that’s how public shootings and school shootings and shit like that happen. I’m not saying that this dude is not creepy as fuck, but this is not the way to handle this! He didn’t say anything mean (on purpose), and when you shut him down like that how the fuck do you think he’s going to react? He must know he’s somewhat creepy, but when a complete stranger that he adores tells him so vividly how creepy he is, that must wreck his world. I’m just saying I wouldn’t be surprised if he bought a gun (legally, but that’s a different issue) and went in to the store he knows you fucking work at. Just be nice to people fuck.
Alright, you know what? I don’t want to reblog this post. I want this post to die. And I have never once reblogged to reply to someone else’s comment on this post. But this one? This one I’m fucking gonna, because how. dare. you.
Are you seriously one of those slimy, inhuman grease traps of a human being who blame VICTIMS OF SHOOTINGS FOR THE FUCKING SHOOTINGS
Don’t you EVER come at me and try to tell me that I need to be responsible, personally responsible, for the mental satisfaction of the kind of monsters who would do something like that. Don’t you ever tell me I have to let myself be uncomfortable around people who LITERALLY STALK ME and put on a big smile and let them down gently because in your twisted little brain it is MY JOB TO KEEP THEM FROM KILLING PEOPLE
H O W F U C K I N G D A R E Y O U
YOU are the problem. YOU are the kind of person who justifies that kind of senseless violence by saying WELL IF SHE HAD JUST GIVEN HIM A CHANCE
IF SHE HAD JUST FUCKED HIM
IF HE HAD JUST ‘GOTTEN SOME’
HE WOULDN’T HAVE RAPED HER/SHOT THEM/DONE IT
Are you fucking proud of that? Are you proud that that’s the tiny drop you choose to drop into society’s bucket?
I don’t care if it ‘wrecked his world’ when he was called out on his socially unacceptable, disgusting behavior. I don’t caaaaaaaare
His actions are HIS actions. His actions are HIS fault
the next time I see a tragedy like the elliot rodger shooting on the news, I’m gonna think of all the vile comments from people online that say it all could have been avoided if the people he threatened and menaced would just relinquish their bodies and their comfort and their personal space for him, and I’m gonna s e e y o u r f a c e and I hope you fucking know it.
Don’t you ever talk to me. I am sick to my stomach over your fucking bullshit.

If you use YouTube, you need to know this.
You’ve heard all these rumblings about Net Neutrality over the past several months. Let’s get real: this is about controlling online video. It is estimated that by 2017, video content will account for 80-90% of all global Internet traffic.
This isn’t just about not being able to binge-watch a series on Netflix. It’s about the future of online video as we know it.
Whether your YouTube channel is home to daily vlogs, short films, or just that one video from when the cinnamon challenge seemed like a good idea, you’re a video creator. Your content and comments help shape this community. Let’s keep it that way.
Net Neutrality means that your YouTube videos reach people at the same speed as clips from last night’s episode of the Tonight Show. It means a level playing field for video creators looking to reach an audience. But new Net Neutrality rules could mess that up.
Here’s the deal: Telecommunications companies already charge us to access the Internet through our homes and our phones. New FCC rules could allow them to also charge content providers (like YouTube, Netflix, and even PBS) for access to our eyeballs. It could create a fast lane for Jimmy Fallon’s clips, and slow lane for your YouTube videos.
It is really important that the FCC understands that online video creators care about Net Neutrality. Even if you’ve only ever uploaded ONE VIDEO, you are a creator and you have a voice.
If you can, please add your channel to our petition. We’ll deliver this to the FCC in September and demonstrate that the online video community cares about this issue.

my brother found this old menu board at a thrift store and hung it up in his apartment looking like this
midgardian etiquette 101: when going to their homes, hang your coat first or in some cases, your mjolnir.
naw maybe it’s actually asgardian custom to check your weapons at the door
It was medieval custom to check your weapons at the door of the meadhall before greeting the king of the place you were going to. It was courteous and showed respect. You can see it in Beowulf.
what i don’t understand is how that hook can hold the mjolnir.
the hook is worthy
the hook is worthy
Peter Pan would disagree.
I’ve not read the comics but I always figured Mjolnir wasn’t heavy so much as stubborn, and if it decided it didn’t wanna move it just wouldn’t. It sits on Loki, rather than crushing him in Thor 1, and in Avengers it rests on the floor of the ship, and trying to pick it up Hulk starts breaking the floor with his weight, but Mjolnir doesn’t seem to weight anything at all (If it was as heavy as Hulk implied, it would drag the whole ship to the ground right?). Mjolnir isn’t heavy, cos its not going down, instead it is a fixed point and everything else just moves around it. Hence, the hook doesn’t hold it, it merely remains in place.
so what you’re trying to say is that Mjolnir is like a chicken head
instead it is a fixed point and everything else just moves around it.
OK SO WHAT YOU ARE SAYING
IS THAT WHEN THIS HAMMER WAS FORGED IN THE HEART OF A STAR IT BECAME A FIXED QUANTUM POINT
AND THE UNIVERSE MOVES AROUND IT—AND THOR IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE PROPER RESONANCE TO INTERACT WITH IT ON A QUANTUM LEVEL
AND SO HE IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE LEVERAGE REQUIRED TO SHIFT THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE AROUND THE FIXED POINT THAT IS MJOLNIR
THIS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE
DUDE YOU GUYS SCIENCED THORS HAMMER THAT IS AWESOME
i just… can’t have this not on my blog.
like there’s nothing inherently wrong with headcanoning harry or remus or whoever as gay. but i am deeply suspicious of people who do this and then ship them with draco and sirius respectively, and exclusively.
why? because almost every time, this involves not putting in any effort to invest in ginny and tonks’ characters, yet making every effort to explore draco - a racist bully - or even the marauders, who play second fiddle (in terms of the time spent exploring their youth) to the main story, which more heavily involves luna, tonks, ginny, neville, mcgonagall and the other teachers, etc etc.
i’m just … really, really sick of this trend whereby people will point blank refuse to invest in female characters, elderly characters, canon character of colour (such as kingsley shacklebolt, lavender, dean, and the patil sisters), yet make every effort known to explore characters in canon who are often unlikeable or even just don’t have an enormous amount of material to work with who just so happen to be white men.
obviously harry, remus, sirius, draco & co are very important characters to the narrative, so understandably people relate to and like them for various reasons, yet equally as important are ginny and tonks, whose fanbases are much smaller, and whose output of fanworks is much smaller. i see dozens of posts in a couple of weeks about remus and sirius’ great love, yet maybe one a month about anything to do with tonks.
true, remus’ and sirius’ past may be more tragic and compelling than tonks’, and one could argue the same for draco. yet isn’t tonks’ present just as compelling? a young woman fighting in a war, falling in love with an older man, becoming involved in plots with famous wizarding figures like harry potter and albus dumbledore - that’s the stuff of a 100k fanfic! yet, there are only 1324 works on ao3 tagged ‘nymphadora tonks’, compared to 8414 works tagged ‘remus lupin’. hmm.
it’s a similar situation for ginny. sorting by kudos for ginny/harry fics, i found one fic on the first page that was actually about them as a pairing, not as a past pairing, not in some sort of orgy or threesome, not as the beta pairing. most of the fics tagged ginny/harry were actually about draco/harry. funny how that works. there were also 2046 fics tagged ‘harry potter/ginny weasley’ compared to a staggering 9515 fics tagged ‘draco malfoy/harry potter’.
but it’s not only the disinterest in exploring characters outside the two most popular slash pairings of the fandom that really gets me riled up. it’s the blatant attempts to discredit these characters and label them as abusers and bad people that does that. i’ve read thousands of words worth of meta describing tonks as a dark manipulator, who guilts remus into marrying her in a moment of vulnerability - rather than, you know, a young woman who was suffering greatly herself in attempting to fight a war and find a way to convince the man she loves that he’s worthy of her. again, the same situation arises with ginny. a metric shitton of meta about what an evil temptress she is to harry - how dare she kiss him goodbye when he’s about to leave for what may be his death! how dare she have multiple boyfriends before harry! how dare she have a childhood crush on him! she must be a stalker! it’s garbage, and i see blogger i honestly respect fall into this gross mischaracterization all the time.
i’ve mainly focused on tonks and ginny with this meta because they are the love interests so often relegated to cardboard cutouts in fanworks designed to explore slash pairings. but as i mentioned earlier, similar treatment can be found with other secondary characters, in a subtler yet still harmful way. remus, draco and sirius are all secondary characters - harry, of course, is the main. yet the former receive a great deal of attention from fandom compared to other, similar secondary characters, such as hogwarts students padma and pavarti, dean, seamus, lavender, jordan, angelina, and even luna, a fan favourite; as well as other members of the order and teachers at hogwarts: mcgonagall, kingsley, flitwick, hagrid, etc etc. most of these characters have something in common - they are not white men. the exceptions are seamus, whose potential slash partner dean is black, (this pairing has a tiny 186 fics on ao3), hagrid, who is not conventionally attractive and in universe carries the stigma of being part-giant, and flitwick, again carrying the in universe stigma of being part-goblin (whose appearance is likened to that of people with dwarfism). all of these characters carry a similar standing within the books as secondary or beta characters - admittedly, some with more coverage than others - but all of a similar enough degree of description and ‘screentime’ to be invested in. almost every one is relegated to the background in fanworks.
i know i’m biased towards my faves - tonks and ginny. nevertheless, i don’t believe i’m wrong in saying this fandom has a much deeper bias in favour of white men, in particular of interpreting them strictly as cis, gay, and maintaining their assumed whiteness. to be perfectly honest, i’m tired of it. bring on bisexual ginny! nonbinary luna! mixed race hagrid! queer dean thomas and his openly pansexual bf seamus! aro ace mcgonagall! anything to break up the monotony of gay white cis man after gay white cis man, which, while they may not plague your dashes, certainly plague mine. magicqueers was a good start. but it’s only the beginning.

i dont care if text posts are fake, let me believe the world is funny and creative and parents are weird and teachers are fun and coincidences always line up with the joke. it gives me hope.
