The World Within

youngjusticer:

The sequel to Man of Steel is one of the most awaited films. There’s a lot of inquisitiveness regarding the plot. However, the producers are making sure the storyline stays behind curtains. In this technological era, it’s not hard for inside details to surface. Alleged spoilers include a retired forty-year-old Bruce (plausible), Batman is an international legend (no doubt), the film starts seven years after the events of The Dark Knight Rises (highly questionable), Batman is rebuilding his city alongside Nightwing, and Wayne says he’s financing Batman (this can’t be connected to Chris Nolan’s Batman ‘cause Wayne’s dead?). Probably a bunch’a BS, if you ask me. Still unsure how they’ll fit WW…

"Strong is the New Pretty" is a new photo series by Kate Parker which shows her two daughters and their friends "just as they are: loud, athletic, fearless, messy, joyous, frustrated. I wanted to celebrate them, just as they are, and show them that is enough.  Being pretty or perfect is not important. Being who they are is."

“One of the biggest reasons our kids are going through what they’re going through is because of poverty,” said Common at a press conference to announce the collaboration. “I was doing an event in the neighbourhood and there were some kids from Englewood and I said, ‘Man, what do y’all really need? What’s gonna stop this?’ And they were like, ‘We need money. Man, if we could work.’ They want a chance.”Common’s Common Ground Foundation and West’s Donda’s House company have joined forces with local community organisation Chicago Urban League to help provide year-round opportunities for the city’s youth, with an annual music festival set to be held as a fundraiser.

Please consider emailing Time magazine at feedback@time.com to get them to reconsider not putting Laverne Cox on their list. She overwhelmingly got voted in at 91.5%, but was not put on there. Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood had 25% of the vote and was put on there.
The erasure of trans women, and women of color needs to stop. Ms. Cox does nothing but good work.

okay so it’s really important to call people out when they say and do shitty shit

but if you can’t tell the difference between people who don’t care what you have to say and people who TRY REALLY HARD TO LISTEN TO THE CRITICISM AND MAKE AMENDS FOR THEIR SHIT

then wtf is the point

itsvondell:

bottom line anyone who says “john green responded to laverne cox not making it into the TIME list with just the word ‘disappointing’ and no further comment” has literally not attempted to check that information in even the most basic way of actually going to see whether or not it’s true

itsvondell:

why are a lot of yall talking as if john green intentionally put himself on the time 100 list and supports the list fully

i’m wholly disappointed with how time handled the list too especially w/r/t the erasure of laverne cox, with her scoring an overwhelming percentage of support in the polling stage, it’s unacceptable

like the issue here is let’s hold time accountable for their decision to hold an undeniably influential transwoman of color with 91.5% support in the polls out of the list yet freely include several people whose support in the polling stage barely scraped over 20%

and john reblogs the same post about it yall are and says “disappointing” and people are flipping out over that? like as if he didnt immediately follow it up with a full and entirely on point explanation about his perspective on her exclusion from the list? it’s like people were posted up waiting for him to say anything at all waiting to reblog whatever it was as if he had said something deeply reprehensible about it

i guess it seems like a counterproductive mindset to me but i also understand speaking out of emotion or personal conviction so yall are free to take that with a grain of salt, etc etc, we’re all still united in wanting to hold time accountable for laverne

If you think this isn’t the damn truth you should know that a few years back, my campus newspaper ran an article that said fat women should be grateful for rape because it’s the only way they’ll ever feel worthy of a man’s attention.
I shit you not.

yeah, I’ve been told on multiple occasions during casual conversations that I’m not pretty/skinny enough to be raped, so that’s a thing

this disgusts the core of my being.

this is awful, but I’ve routinely had the thought that I’m clearly not attractive because I haven’t been publicly hit on or experienced catcalls/harassment/etc
