Planned Parenthood, can I sing your praises for a minute? Because a few days ago, you gave this scared lil’ transguy a great new IUD. This was my first experience with Planned Parenthood and while I’d always been a supporter of what you guys do, I absolutely love you all even more now. I’m a rape survivor and very dysphoric about my body and your highly respectful clinic made me feel very comfortable and safe. My name and pronouns were respected the whole time and I didn’t get any awkward questions either. I’d been stressing about this appointment for weeks! So thank you all so much for what you do!

And to all my fellow FAAB transfolk, go to Planned Parenthood for your reproductive health needs!

You can sing our praises all you want if we can sing yours! So happy you were able to get the care you needed.

The evolution of girl gamers

Boy gamers are so self-centered they act as though women haven’t been playing video games for decades, and then act horrified when the female gamers who have always been there actually become visible and vocal about the rampant misogyny that has infected the gaming world. 
Like seriously, how entitled do you have to be that women saying “it sure would be nice if I wasn’t treated like shit while enjoying the games I play” translates to “I must be catered to” when video games have LITERALLY been catered to men for decades? 

More like:
1993 - 64% of girls reported playing video games 
1996 - "home use had increased for fourth grade girls"
1998 - "both male and female adolescents play video games on a regular basis." 
1999 - "88% of the female college students … surveyed were video game players."
2007 - 20-47% of adolescent girls play video games
2008 - "94% of girls play video games"
2010 - "Forty percent of all game players are women." 
2012 - "Women 18 or older represent a significantly greater portion of the game-playing population (30%) than boys age 17 or younger" 
2013 -"adult women are nearly half of all video game players"
I didn’t get all the dates, but I think you can get the point.
Also considered posting my own personal gaming history, but I would’ve had to go back to the 80s for that. e_e

Been playing since I was old enough to hold the NES controller.

To say nothing of the thousands of women who have been creating all those well-loved video games for several decades now.

Filed under q in same ways the game industry itself is waaaaaay less misogynistic than the wider gamer community I worked as a video game designer for more than a decade (before my heath required me to retire from working completely) and I got so much less crap from my fellow game developers compared to the massive amounts of bullshit I see around online and at cons it's just fucking ridiculous the myth of the fake geek girl my former life as a game designer video games

Dryad

In Greek mythology, the dryads are female spirits of nature (nymphs), who preside over the groves and forests. Each one is born with a certain tree over which she watches. A dryad either lives in a tree, in which case she is called a hamadryad, or close to it. The lives of the dryads are connected with that of the trees; should the tree perish, then she dies with it. If this is caused by a mortal, the gods will punish him for that deed. The dryads themselves will also punish any thoughtless mortal who would somehow injure the trees.

So I decided to make myself a thing :)

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)

I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.

I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!

this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.

I CAN’T WAIT

So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway.  Ask box is open, slam away.

When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people.  By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.

Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it.  A BLACK orphan?!  Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.

THIS IS ALL SHADES OF PERFECT

Filed under q yes this though I probably won't see it but that's because I was in a production of Annie as one of the orphans years ago and I know from experience that those songs will get stuck in my head for *weeks* there is no earworm worse than an earworm you've sung on stage in front of an audience but this racial commentary is spot-on and changing Annie's race gets more to the heart of what Depression-era orphans experienced whereas not changing her race would have obscured the original purpose and premise of the story Annie

Typical stereotypes associated with Disney Princesses.

(via droo216)

Filed under q yes this and also it raised me with the idea that a GIRL can be the main character that HER actions have more weight than anyone else's that HER journey is more important than any of the male characters around her while ALL OTHER ENTERTAINMENT EVER puts men in those lead roles and has the women getting hurt or killed to progress the hero's plot or explain his man-pain Disney Princesses taught me that I am NOT AN EXTRA in somene else's story I am my own heroine and when I dream of more than the life at my fingertips I do it in the long tradition of the amazing beautiful strong amitious thoughtful kind HEROINES I was raised on I do it with Ariel's voice and Belle's heart because I was raised to believe that this is MY story Disney Disney Princesses all girls are princesses

This is what pisses me off about Tumblr. You all say you’re so accepting and you don’t want to offend anyone, but then thousands of people reblog something like this because Christians aren’t the minority. You wouldn’t want to offend a Muslim, and if this were offensive to them or another minority, there’d be so many comments about it. But everyone is completely fine with offending a non minority. “You’re not oppressed, you can’t talk!” You know what? I’m a Christian and this offends me and my faith, but nobody’s going to care about that because I’m not oppressed. Tumblr is hypocritical and that needs to stop.

Amen to the comment

Oh my precious lambs:

Examine why you are being offended. Because this is literally how a sunset works. There is not room for debate on this question. There is less room for debate on this than there is on just about any other thing. We are not reblogging because Christians aren’t the minority, dear ones. We are reblogging because after the debate a few days ago, creationists were given the opportunity to pose a question for non-creationists. One of these questions was:

"How can you explain a sunset if their is no god?" (sp.)

Questions, we assume, are posed so that someone might answer them. And yes, there is an answer of how exactly one can explain a sunset given the absence of a divine force. Now, you can certainly posit that God is the creator of all things and so all things came from him including the sun and light refraction and anthrax and kittens and famine and all that jazz.

But you don’t get to deny that THIS IS HOW A SUNSET WORKS, and of the necessary elements of this equation (Sun + Atmosphere + Angle = Sunset), God is not one of them. That’s because everything else is an observable phenomenon, and God is not. You can explain a sunset without God. You can go ahead and believe that God’s part of it all. That’s cool. Lots of people believe stuff like that, and I encourage you to delve into the ways that people make science and their faith jive. But if you are offended by being shown the basic scientific principals behind a sunset, you must be offended by damn near everything. And that seems exhausting. 

In short:

People getting butthurt over science, fucking love it.

(via streetlightarson)

Filed under q ugh god yes this and to be frank as long as Christians behave as though they're the only ones who can VIOLATE the Constitution who can combine Church and State when it suits their purposes but shreak and scream about 'the war on Christmas' or Sharia Law in the US and make huge legal fusses out of teaching Creationism as science or forcing non-religious school children to pray then yeah no I'm not going to treat them like an oppressed minority religion politics creationism science

Something I Need

"Something I Need"

I had a dream the other night

About how we only get one life

Woke me up right after two

Stayed awake and stared at you

So I wouldn’t lose my mind

And I had the week that came from hell

And yes I know that you could tell

But you’re like the net under the ledge

When I go flying off the edge

You go flying off as well

And if you only die once I wanna die with
You got something I need
In this world full of people there’s one killing me

And if we only die once, 

I wanna die with you 

You got something I need

In this world full of people there’s one killing me

And if we only die once,

I wanna die with you 


Last night I think I drank too much

Call it our temporary crutch,

With broken words I’ve tried to say

Honey don’t you be afraid

If we got nothing we got us


And if you only die once I wanna die with

You got something I need

In this world full of people there’s one killing me

And if we only die once,

I wanna die with you 

You got something I need

In this world full of people there’s one killing me

And if we only die once,

I wanna die with you 


I know that we’re not the same

But I’m so damn glad that we made it

To this time, this time, around, yeah


You got something I need

Yeah in this world full of people there’s one killing me

And if we only die once I wanna die with you 

You got something I need

In this world full of people there’s one killing me

And if we only die once, 

I wanna die with you 

You got something I need

In this world full of people there’s one killing me

And if we only die once

I wanna die with you 


If we only die once  I wanna die with

If we only live once I wanna live with you
