thebkwyrm: For months, every morning when my daughter was in preschool, I watched her construct an elaborate castle out of blocks, colorful plastic discs, bits of rope, ribbons and feathers, only to have the same little boy gleefully destroy it within seconds of its completion. No matter how many times he did it, his parents never swooped in BEFORE the morning’s live 3-D reenactment of...

copperbadge: Yesterday my “your friendly reminder” post about how Orson Scott Card Is A Homophobe Don’t Give Him Money got linked-all-over again and I got the same mixture of responses as last time: 1. Oh my god what. Welp, there go my weekend plans. 2. Hear hear! 3. What about all the people who worked on the film? 4. I’m going to go anyway and give an equivalent amount of money to a gay...

inspectorclarke: Cosplayers don’t say “I love you” they say “SCISSORS SEWING WIGS FABRIC SCREW IT I’M USING DUCT TAPE” which roughly translates to “The con is tomorrow” and I think that’s beautiful.

tragedyandnihilism: If you were abused or anything else happened with your mom, don’t let anyone tell you that you have to love her today, just because she gave birth to you. You should never feel obligated to love someone who hurt you, and you have the right to be upset. If you have a good relationship with your mom, awesome. Go tell her Happy Mother’s Day!
tardisteapotandfriends: HAVE YOU EVER LOVED SOMEONE PLATONICALLY SO MUCH AND YOU JUST WANT THEM TO KNOW HOW AMAZING THEY ARE AND HOW MUCH YOU LOVE THEM AND IT PHYSICALLY PAINS YOU WHEN THEY THINK ABOUT THEMSELVES NEGATIVELY AND YOU JUST WANT TO SQUISH THEM AND GO “NO YOU ARE WRONG YOU ARE MORE WONDERFUL THAN YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE” AND MAKE THEM BELIEVE IT BECAUSE I HAVE.

enjoli: Why do people do such hateful and nasty things for attention when they could just wear outlandish hats?
Your friendly reminder.
copperbadge: As a book, I love Ender’s Game to tiny pieces. It’s the anthem for the smart young outsider, and it’s a hell of an adventure story. I love it and I’m ashamed of how much I love it because it’s written by this man: “Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy. I will act to destroy that government and bring it...

Woman: I'm smart
Patriarchy: Well you're probably ugly then
Woman: I'm creative
Patriarchy: You mean unattractive right?
Woman: I have all these incredible accomplishments
Patriarchy: Yeah but look how ugly you looked doing them
Woman: I have value
Patriarchy: Not if you're ugly lol
Woman: I'm conventionally-attractive & posted selfies on my blog
Patriarchy: I'm so sick of these empty-headed chicks only caring about their looks. Just because you are attractive and get attention from men doesn't mean you are special or deserve respect. Why don't you read a book or do something productive with your life you dumb slut
