tl;dr - Redditor whining about being friendzoned gets politely told.
This needs to be reblogged until every immature little asshat on the planet gets the message.
HAPPENING NOW [VERY IMPORTANT]: Venezuela’s soldiers are killing their people. The Government is sending their armed gangs to kill them and they have censored all the media in their country, even blocking photos posted on social media sites. They shut down all the cable channels that broadcast news, so they can’t know what’s going on. The people have no source of protection at all. Students are protesting to save their country and their lives at this very moment. All they have are their social networks to get the word out so, PLEASE RE-BLOG THIS AND SPREAD THE WORD. VENEZUELA IS ON THE BRINK OF A CIVIL WAR AND CLOSE TO BECOMING A FULL COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP. THEIR PEOPLE NEED YOUR HELP. —— Please, this is very important to me, one of my closest friends went to visit family in Venezuela over winter break and they won’t let him come back to Florida. We’re graduating in a few months and it hurts me to know that his baseball career and all of his hard work and dedication to his grades here in the U.S. was all for nothing. Please.

Rock on Olivia Wilde. I love this story:
As part of a panel on the “State of Female Justice,” the actress told a fascinating — and very telling — story about doing a gender-swapped reading of the script for American Pie. The swap resulted in the women getting “all the good lines” and laughs, while the men were sidelined to the roles of supporting props.
"The men who joined us to sit on stage started squirming rather uncomfortably and got really bored because they weren’t used to being the supporting cast," Wilde said. "It was fascinating to feel their discomfort [and] to discuss it with them afterwards, when they said, ‘It’s boring to play the girl role!’ And I said, ‘Yeah. Yeah. You think?! Welcome to our world!’"
Okay I know it’s not anyone else’s job to come out for another person, but really did anyone really NOT know?
I think it’s just the fact that it’s official now. Cause nobody knew for sure but now we know so it’s fuckin real
I hope that someday this won’t be a huge deal and people won’t need to come out because they’ll be in a society that is accepting enough not to have her in hiding in the first place.
It kinda annoys me that people downplay this with “it was obvious” or “who didn’t know already?” When you watch the video you can hear in her voice how huge this is for her. We literally just watched one of the most significant moments of her life. Everything she said was so genuine about the strength and courage she felt empowered with from the LGBT community and supporters.
Fuck yes lady. You’re incredible!
Here’s the recipe since motherfuckers can’t source their shit.
sweet baby jesus
This changes everything
okay so yes plz
here ya go rhyder
unless you’re boots-n-cats, you have no idea how aroused this makes me.
An alternate universe where Bruce Wayne died instead of his parents. Causing his father Thomas Wayne to become Batman and his mother Martha to go insane and become the Joker.
THIS IS SO CRAZY
This is from the Flashpoint Paradox movie where everything was reversed when Flash got very upset and ran so fast that he went back in time, he ended up where his mother was killed and prevented her death, causing everything to change, including him becoming flash. Small details of every event,(such as Bruce dying instead of his parents). At the end Thomas Wayne (batman in the alternate universe) sends a letter back with Flash to his own universe to give to Bruce Wayne (Batman) and Bruce fucking cries and it is the saddest fucking Batman experience you will ever see.
Ash: Reimagining Fairy Tales. In a way that totally rocks.
In the wake of her father’s death, Ash is left at the mercy of her cruel stepmother. Consumed with grief, her only joy comes by the light of the dying hearth fire, rereading the fairy tales her mother once told her. In her dreams, someday the fairies will steal her away, as they are said to do. When she meets the dark and dangerous fairy Sidhean, she believes that her wish may be granted.
The day that Ash meets Kaisa, the King’s Huntress, her heart begins to change. Instead of chasing fairies, Ash learns to hunt with Kaisa. Though their friendship is as delicate as a new bloom, it reawakens Ash’s capacity for love-and her desire to live. But Sidhean has already claimed Ash for his own, and she must make a choice between fairy tale dreams and true love.
So Ash, by Malinda Lo, is, basically, the best retelling of Cinderella ever. It’s wonderful.
Don’t go into this book expecting it to be your classic Disney Cinderella with a paint job. Reimagined is a far better word for it than adaption. This isn’t just “Cinderella, but the prince is a princess!” story. There are a few critical story elements drawn from the original work (Abusive stepmother, fairy help for a party, romance), woven into a thick, complex, and compelling narrative that is wholly its own.
There are a few things that I find so amazing about this book. The first is just how fantastic it is to have a plainly and clearly bisexual heroine (to be fair, she could be seen as pan? The labels are never used, but Ash does express romantic interest in multiple genders, so read her how you want.) Rare indeed, but Ash definitely has feelings for both Sidhean and Kaisa. There’s no moment where Ash realizes that she was really only interested in woman all along or any other bi-erasurey stuff. Her feelings of bisexuality are validated.
Beyond that, it’s also really nice to spend time in a fantasy narrative in which queerphobia seems wholly absent. There’s no laboring over how Ash could be attracted to a woman, no deep seated prejudices against their relationship based on gender to overcome. Many of the fairytales within their culture include love between women. It is normalized, and the romance too feels normalized. And it is nice to feel that way at times. The only obstacles to overcome are Ash’s contract with Sidhean and the class differences between Kaisa and her.
It’s nice to see a reimagined fairy tale which truly feels FRESH, when so often the genre feels stuffy and cliche. But Ash is full of compelling characters, superb world building, and genuinely lovable characters. My only complaint is that it takes too long to meet Kaisa.
I recommend it. :) And yes, I will be reading Malinda Lo’s Huntress soon.

this is coming from an Israeli, I do not agree with your anti-Israel jokes. We are not all bad.
They weren’t jokes
And even so, if you can take a country, you can take a joke
