I just got my six year old cousin into Archie Comics. I’m so proud of myself.
I bought my friend an elephant for their room.
They said “Thank you.”
I want Dean and Cas to have a little girl who adores her Uncle Sammy and she tells him how much she loves him while braiding his hair and putting it in pony tails.
Her little skinny arms wrapping around his neck and saying, “You’re my favorite uncle!”
and he’d laugh saying, “I’m your only uncle.”
and then Dean would hear that and drop whatever he’s holding and say, “Shit, we forgot Adam.”
do i laugh or do i cry
things that should not concern u:
- the length of a woman’s skirt

things that should concern u:
- america’s gun laws
- that u haven’t petted enough dogs today

Please send love and positive thoughts Boyfriend’s family’s way. We just found out his uncle was shot and killed in a home invasion this morning. I will post more later, if I can.Edit: He was shot, then stabbed. Died from the stab wound.
“black pride” (or any sort of “minority” pride movement) means “I am proud of who I am DESPITE those who have told me and my people that whiteness is superior” while “white pride” means “I am proud of who I am BECAUSE whiteness is superior” and that’s why it’s ok to say one but not the other
If you’re at a pool, and there’s some kids running, and the life guard shouts “No running!” do you interject with “EXCUSE ME, NOT ALL OF US WERE RUNNING.”
If you’re in class, and a classmate is eating, and your professor addresses his students, “There’s no eating in the classroom,” do you scream out “EXCUSE ME, BUT WE’RE NOT ALL EATING.”
The lifeguard and your professor are well aware who is doing what. There is no reason for them to modify their sentences because they realize you’re aware of who is doing what, too. They have enough faith in your intelligence that if they say, no running, or, no eating, you will recognize that if you are not already doing these things, you are in the clear.
When someone begins a post, “why do men do x,” they are not saying that every single man in this world wakes up and makes it a point to do x for the day, every day of his life. Nobody ever, ever thinks that. They exist around men and observe men on a regular enough basis to know that obviously not all men do x.
No. They are saying that they have witnessed men doing x enough that they would like to point it out. They are saying that in the whole group of men, there are men who do x, and they think it’s worth noting.
So there’s no reason to go “NOT ALL MEN” because everyone already knows not all men, and that’s why nobody said “all men.” They just said men. If you’re not the man it applies to, move the fuck on, just like you’d keep walking at a swimming pool or keep not eating in class.
If the words “some men” are keeping you from recognizing a post with very valid points, you’re the problem.
A lot of people are asking what exactly Jared and Aisha said and I am literally too angry to want to retype it all but I just tweeted about it, so here:
And that’s basically the summary of it, there was more but I was a bit distracted by rage to catch all of what was said.
I am just so angry because it shows just such disrespect and misogyny and I can’t even describe how hurtful their comments were, as a female fan, as a woman and a person who values the stories and lives of women, to see such blatant disregard and scorn for the idea of female characters, especially after Jeremy Carver’s condescending remarks earlier, and I just…
