But I'm Not Crazy
I'm just a little unwell
I know right now
You can't tell
But stay a while and Maybe then you'll see
A different side of me


Fandom, fandom, fandom. And that's about all there is to it. I post and reblog bits of anything I think worth posting or reblogging. Supernatural | Teen Wolf | Doctor Who | Sherlock | Lord of the Rings | Harry Potter | Avengers | Homestuck | Others here and there.

I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives,  and etc etc:
- White people are less likely to be arrested for the same crime than black people, and black people serve longer (much longer!) sentences than white people.
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans. 
- Racial bias in hiring in the U.S. is well-documented and persistent.
- African American students are far more likely to be punished in schools, even though they are not much more likely to break school rules than their white peers.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination. 
- White people in the U.S. on average have lower mortgage rates than African Americans.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.

She had curves in all the wrong places. She had a boob sticking out of her kneecap and I’d never seen an ass on the back of someone’s head before

She had legs that went on forever. And ever, and ever. Legs going on into the endless primordial void from which we all came from and to which we shall all return. Her toes touched infinity, her hips perched on the cessation of existence.

I want a disney animated movie with ladies beating stuff up

I know the whole Disney Princess thing is mostly about being kind and gracious and nice but you gotta admit, when Disney animates women fighting

Italian special force soldier after 72 hour battle in Afghanistan

School for black civil rights activists. Young girl being trained to not react to smoke blown in her face, 1960

Disability activists abandon their wheelchairs and mobility devices and crawl up the 83 stone steps of the U.S. Capitol Building demanding the passage of the American with Disability Act, March 12, 1990.

A south Korean man cries as his brother is on a train back to North Korea. Separated by the war, they have not seen the other since 1950. They were allowed to see each other for three days, but one will go back spending life in luxury, and the other in hard labour

 The Mocambo night club in East Hollywood, a white’s only club, was the most popular dance spot around but would not book Ella because she was black. Marilyn, who adored Ella Fitzgerald and her music, called the manager and demanded that they book Ella immediately

Portrait of Istvan Reiner, taken shortly before he was killed in Auschwitz

Werfel, a 6 year old orphan from Austria has just been given his first pair of new shoes by the American Red Cross,1946.

The last Jew of Vinnitsa

Until the mid-60s, the Aboriginals came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an Aboriginal meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.

Here’s a link to 75 iconic pictures of the 21st century
I hope you guys learned and teared up from this as much as I did.

Intimate photos of agender youth challenge society’s gender norms

"I think a lot of people like to see gender as this scale of blue and pink," Emma, a 20-year-old college student, told the magazine. "I never really identified with either side of that, or even in between blue and pink. It’s so much more complicated — my identity varies so much on any given day. Sometimes I tell people I’m gold or something."

Read more | Follow policymic 

I appreciate that it includes a bit from the original article, which clarifies:

"This growing community encompasses people who see themselves as agender (neither male nor female), bi-gender (both genders) and gender-fluid (shifting from male to female)."

THIS IS SERIOUSLY THE FIRST TIME I HAVE SEEN A PHOTO SET OF AGENDER PEOPLE ON THIS SITE!!!

*BOUNCES UP AND DOWN IN EXCITEMENT*

as usual there’s some gross comments so don’t scroll too far down past the article but this is otherwise good

What do you mean fatphobia and fat shaming
Anonymous

gaiusthegenius:

this is actually a documented thing, in children’s literature especially. Allow me to draw your attention to page 85 of Exploring Children’s Literature (2nd Edn.) by Nikki Gamble and Sally Yates:

stagdogwolfandrat:

Idk, I always felt the HP series had a lot of fat phobia in it. A lot of the ‘not nice’ characters were fat. Dudley and Vernon Dursley for instance. There were several parts in the books where Dudley was mocked for his weight. Peter Pettigrew was fat too. ‘Fat’ seems to be associated with ‘bad’, but not the suave kind of bad. Not the ‘bad’ like Draco Malfoy or young Tom Riddle, who are seen as bad guys, but you’re not meant to be disgusted by them. You’re meant to be fascinated by them. In a strange way, they’re still respected as villains (not saying Draco is a villain, but you get my point right?). That doesn’t happen with the fat characters though. They’re either meant to be laughed at, or you’re meant to feel disgusted by them.

"A criticism levelled at Roald Dahl, and more recently JK Rowling, is that a character’s worth is associated with their physical attributes. Augustus Gloop and Dudley Dursley are presented as being inherently unpleasant and their fatness is inextricably bound up with personality."

"…a character’s worth is associated with their physical attributes."

"…[unpleasant fat characters’] fatness is inextricably bound up with their [bad] personality."

So much truth.

This is why I’m rolling my eyes at the majority of the villain worship on this site. Fit people and thin people get the handsome, suave ones. We get the slavering dump trucks, knuckle-cracking henchmen and dumb, fat bullies.

You all get Loki, we get Dudley. They never make fat Lokis.

And I’m sorry if you all think I sound like a broken record, but I’m going to keep talking about it because I’m constantly reminded of it every time I scroll down my dash. I am so tired of having so few characters to admire or relate to, even with the villains.
