Hey kids wanna watch a super fun movie with themes about abandonment, consumerism, organ harvesting, and the social depreciation of the handicapped, elderly, and terminally ill?

Then do I have a film for you!

Even as a kid this movie made me a little sad and I didn’t get why until I was a lot older.

this movie was stressful as fuck.

"An adorable adventure"

Men had no problem violating women’s bodies while they had on corsets, petticoats and farthingales, so what the fuck makes you think a short skirt has anything to do with it? 

Men also have no problem violating women’s bodies while they wear a niqab, hijab and burqa, some of the most covered form of clothing. So basically, what the fuck makes you think clothes have anything to do with it?

Super relevant.

Scales

This is because Fahrenheit is based on a brine scale and the human body. The scale is basically how cold does it have to be to freeze saltwater (zero Fahrenheit) to what temperature is the human body (100-ish Fahrenheit, although now we know that’s not exactly accurate). Fahrenheit was designed around humans.Celsius and Kelvin are designed around the natural world.Celsius is a scale based on water. Zero is when water freezes, 100 is when water boils.Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius (one degree, as a unit, is the same between the two), but defines zero as absolute zero, which is basically the temperature at which atoms literally stop doing that spinning thing. Nothing can exist below zero Kelvin. It’s the bottom of the scale.So.Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humansCelsius: what temperatures affect waterKelvin: what temperatures affect atoms

Why didn’t my science teachers ever see fit to toss off this little fact?

tbh asexual/aromantic representation is super fucking important because i didnt know what aromantacy was until about six months ago and im 18, almost 19 years old. i thought something was so fucking wrong with me. i forced myself into romantic relationships and lied to the people i cared about just to try and fix myself and ended up hurting them and ruining a lot of friendships in the process. if you dont think ace/aro representation is important then i dont have time for you.

Kelli Stapleton’s teenage daughter was autistic and prone to violent rages. Kelli had come to fear for her life, and for her family. So she made a decision that perhaps only she could justify, and is now serving 10-22 years in prison. In our new cover story, she talks about her experience trying to cure her daughter through applied behavior analysis (ABA), and what led to her attempt to take her daughter’s life, and her own.

(via By Noon They’d Both Be in Heaven)

Stop glamorizing abusive murderers. Stop giving her a platform to portray her victim as abusive.

I’M SO FUCKING ANGRY I FUCKING HATE THIS 

SHE DESERVES TO ROT IN PRISON FOR TRYING TO KILL HER CHILD FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT 

ABA is torture and abuse in medically acceptable forms. Because treating autistic people like actual human beings instead of problems is just too much, right?

Kelli Stapleton is a fucking murderer and thank God or whatever you believe in that she was not successful. She abused her daughter and refused to accept her daughter as she was, and as is the case in most autistic people subjected to such therapy, Issy responded negatively. Because when all your choices are taken away, anger is what you have left.

Interestingly enough, now that she’s in a loving home with her father? She’s not the problem that her mother claimed she was. Funny how that happens.

Kelli deserves to rot.

Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

 (via)

No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.

1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.

2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.

3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.

Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

so what you are saying is S.H.E.I.L.D. has a super shitty costume division….

Nope, Nick Fury totally did this on purpose.

There’s no knowing what kind of condition Steve’s in, or what kind of person he really is, after decades of nostalgia blur the reality and the long years in the ice (after a plane crash and a shitload of radiation) do their work. (Pre-crash Steve is in lots of files, I’m sure. Nick Fury does not trust files.) So Fury instructs his people to build a stage, and makes sure that the right people put up some of the wrong cues.

Maybe the real Steve’s a dick, or just an above-average jock; maybe he had a knack for hanging out with real talent. Maybe he hit his head too hard on the landing and he’s not gonna be Captain anymore. On the flipside, if he really is smart, then putting him in a standard, modern hospital room and telling him the truth is going to have him clamming up and refusing to believe a goddamn thing he hears for a really long time.

The real question here is, how long it does it take for the man, the myth, the legend to notice? What does he do about it? How long does he wait to get his bearings, confirm his suspicions, and gather information before attempting busting out?

Turns out the answer’s about forty-five seconds.

Sometimes clever posts die a quiet death in the abyss of the unreblogged. Some clever posts get attention, get comments, get better. Then there’s this one which I’ve watched evolve into a thing of brilliance.

Once upon a time, in a faraway land,
A young Prince lived in a shining castle
Although he had everything his heart desired, 
The Prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. 
But then, one winter’s night, an old beggar-woman came to the castle, 
And offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. 
Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the Prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away,
But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, 
For beauty is found within. 
And when he dismissed her again, the old woman’s ugliness melted away 
To reveal a beautiful Enchantress. 
The Prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, 
For she had seen that there was no love in his heart. 
And as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous Beast, and placed a powerful spell on the castle, and all who lived there. 
Ashamed of his monstrous form, the Beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world. 
The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his 21st year.
If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return, 
By the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. 
If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. 
As the years passed, he fell into despair, and lost all hope. 
For who could ever learn to love a Beast?
