I find it really interesting that the historical men like Vincent Van Gogh, Winston Churchill and Richard Nixon portrayed in Moffat Who are always three dimensional and treated respectfully, while the historical women like Elizabeth the First and Nefertiti, are always love sick idiots drooling over the Doctor.

It almost seems like Moffat cannot take women seriously, even if they ruled nations.

Joan Jett’s jacket. Notice the pins.

"keep abortion legal"

"If she says no, it’s rape"

"Pro fucking choice"

This jacket is from about thirty years ago. These issues were big then. Thirty years later, these issues are still present. I was amazed to find these pins on the jacket, and realize this, because I would have thought, back then, if I was alive, that those issues would be solved by NOW.

But they aren’t. Joan Jett knew what was up.

Why can’t we take a minute and soak in her “bad reputation” and think about how in thirty years, abortion and rape culture STILL are huge issues.

My dad would tell me that when we were little and people would say to him “wow, four daughters, that’s a lot of weddings to pay for” (because traditionally the bride’s family would pay for the wedding), my dad would respond with “well, we’re hoping at least one of them will be gay so we can split the cost with the other bride’s family”
He said people never knew how to respond

That sounds cool. BUT HOW DOES IT WORK?

(Helicarrier Hulk wakes up, no control, attacks everyone. New York Hulk is good guy buddy only hurt bad guy. Wait! OK! Loki was harshing the vibe on the helicarrier. No, wait further, Loki was just as there in New York. In fact, quite close to Mr. Grabby Hulk.)

I am continually drawn to this dumb film by the interaction between Downey and Ruffalo. I am continually put off by this dumb film by how dumb it is.

Wow, look at this! It’s 2014, and people are still saying things like this! Amazing!!! :D Here, let me explain to you why, and how:

First of all, why do people keep forgetting that The Incredible Hulk happened?? In that film it was shown that Bruce can actually control the Hulk when he deliberately hulks out.

Please notice that Bruce hulked out on the helicarrier because something blew up and he was thrown so hard he fell one floor down through the window. It was obvious that Bruce was hurt and in danger.

Hulk exists to protect Bruce, Bruce was in danger, you do the math.

Not to mention that Bruce was understandably angry at Natasha and Fury because he felt like they’d lied to him. (Therefore, causing Hulk to went after Natasha).

Manhattan Hulk showed up because Bruce ‘asked’ him to. Because he fucking did it on purpose. The Hulk is the physical manifestation of Bruce’s emotions — all his anger, frustration, empathy, sadness, disappointment, sympathy, love, hate, everything. That’s why Hulk knew which are the bad ones and which are the good ones, that’s why he saved Tony from falling off the sky, that’s why he listened to Steve’s orders. Hulk isn’t just some mindless beast who has no feelings whatsoever. He recognised and saved Betty in the midst of his rampage in TIH, looked hesitant when he saw the fear in Natasha’s eyes (it was brief but it was there), punched Thor as a payback, etc. Hulk is not that simple.

Bottom line is, that Bruce can control the Hulk to some degree when he has the option or actually gets to choose, and that’s not what happened on the helicarrier.

So, yea, that’s how.

In this post the uneducated are taught that The Hulk isn’t a mindless monster born simply out of rage.

If I introduce a movie to you, and we watch it together, I’ll be spending at least 99.9% of the time watching you to make sure you are responding correctly to the film.

Cosplay: Proper Use of Rule 63

"Rule 63 is an internet adage which states that for every fictional character, there exists an opposite-gender counterpart."

Something that’s always bothered me about aggressive gender swapping cosplayers is that, 9 times out of 10, they don’t know who they’re actually dressed as. It’s easy to put on a Captain America costume and assume you’re now a female variant of Steve Rogers… But that’s not the case.

When you dawn the iconic stars and stripes and wield the shield, you just became American Dream. This isn’t a title that’s pulled out of nowhere. She exists. And she’s canon.

Seen above are a series of photos, three comic panels, fan art, and a solitary photo. The series of photos were found under the tag: Captain America Cosplay. The panels are from an actual Marvel Comic and the fan art represents actual female Marvel characters. And that last photo was found under the tag: American Dream Cosplay

If your goal is actual gender swapping, that’s fine. But if your goal is to promote feminism in pop culture, dive into some research. Listed below are some male Marvel superheroes and their canon female versions / counterparts.

• Spiderman -> Spider-Girl

• Spiderman -> Spiderwoman

• Wolverine -> X-23

• Iron Man -> Pepper Potts

• Hulk -> She Hulk

• Venom -> Shriek

• Thor -> Valkyrie

• Loki -> Loki

Notice how Loki linked to Loki? Look up J.Michael Straczynskie’s run of ‘Thor’. In it, Loki had a female form. Also, I butchered JMS’s name, I’m sure. Just look up JMS Thor and you’ll find Loki in all of his / her glory.

My list is minuscule by comparison to the list of canon female counterparts within Marvel. If you’re a cosplayer looking to bring light to female comic book characters… Do just that! These are fantastic characters who deserve the attention and fandom!

Now get out there and make something amazing!

This is pretty fucking insulting to female comic readers and the characters you’ve mentioned.

Excluding Loki (and putting aside that his female form in JMS’s run was him in Sif’s body, so an iffy base for a genderswap cosplay), all of those characters have different powers/abilities to their “male counterparts” and are completely different fucking people.

A female version of Peter Parker is not Jessica Drew, is not May Parker,  and is definitely not Anya Corazon. Just because they have similarly-named alter-egos, it doesn’t negate their unique histories and personalities.

I’m all for promoting great female characters - I will applaud anyone who cosplays a lesser-known character I love, or recommends comics featuring them - but you don’t do that by policing what characters readers can like based on their gender. And you certainly don’t do it by setting those female characters up as the counterparts to male characters.

"No no, you can’t like Captain America, you’re a girl! Here, this is the special lady version of Captain America.”

*aggressively applauds*

THIS IS IMPORTANT, PLEASE DON’T FEED THESE TREATS TO YOUR DOGS
My mom bought these recently and they have made both of my dogs really sick. She later saw an article online about duck and sweet potato treats made in China(these fit the description) killing dogs and the FDA is doing nothing about it. Apparently over the last few years 600 young, healthy dogs have died after eating these treats and I don’t want anymore to suffer or be killed so please spread the word and don’t let your dogs have these!

This is VERY important! A lot of these animal treats made in China are killing dogs and cats. It’s not that the FDA isn’t doing anything about it, it’s simply that they don’t know why it’s happening.
They are conducting investigation after investigation, but the ingredients used in the food killing dogs (and 10 cats) is used in many different brands and companies that have been shipped, all from overseas. At this rate, a total recall and knowledge of where it’s coming from has proven very difficult. Just recalling one brand in particular will not solve the problem. Please conduct a thorough search about any brand of treats that have been made in China should you pick them up for your pet before you feed it to them. If all else fails, just buy local.
EDIT: Here is a list of food that has been recalled (so far) with more information 
Please PLEASE be aware that this isn’t only happening to dogs, but some cat treats, too!

This may save lives!!
