the whole “anger is poisonous and bad for u” mindset was created by people who didn’t want to deal w the justified anger directed at them by others

anger is powerful and important, anger is fuel, and only you determine whether or not your anger is good or bad for you

This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.

Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.

I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene

AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about

'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness' 

when a man violates a woman, he cuts off her wings.

This month I made patterns from Youtube videos of flying animals! I marked specific points on the wing throughout one wingbeat, and drew in curves that fit all 15 points in the wingbeat loop.

Everything we know about the sequel of Wreck-It Ralph

In an interview on October 25, 2012, director Rich Moore said that he and Disney have ideas about a sequel that would bring the characters up to date and explore online gaming and console gaming: “We talked about arcade games. Imagine if we went into home systems and other kinds of platforms or online, or mobile games or something like that. We can’t end with just arcade cabinets from the 1980s.”
Moore stated that many of the crew and voice cast are open to the sequel, believing that they have “barely scratched the surface” of the video game world they envisioned. He also stated that he plans to include Mario and Tron in the sequel.
In a 2014 interview, the film’s composer Henry Jackman said that a story for the sequel is being written: “I can’t tell you more, not because I’m being coy, but I believe that it is officially on the cards. I don’t know any more other than a story is indeed being written.”.

ONE THING YOU SHOULD NEVER CALL AN ATTRACTIVE WOMAN

There are many ways to kindly and respectfully compliment the way a woman looks. But one descriptor that should be left out of such comments? “Exotic.”

Cristen Conger of the How Stuff Works podcast, Stuff Mom Never Told You, takes on the topic of “exotic” beauty.

Watch the full video with Conger explaining how Lupita Nyong’o was “extocized” during the 2014 Oscar season here. 

My personal favourite is when they spend time and you can actually see them looking you over and you can see the brain ticking over as they try to fit you into a box. Sorry but I find it funny. Few are brave enough to come right out and say “what are you?”

The one idiot (a woman) tried it. I answered my ethnicity, but I know that is not what she was asking lolol. I enjoyed torturing her. It is actually fun.

I think too many, too often, take the stupid factor too seriously. Flip it off and move on.

False rape accusations are an anomaly.

True rape accusations are a norm.

You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.

Re-blog now, read later.

"Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”

Q
Do you think storm can be an omega level mutant and if so how do you think she would become one?
Anonymous
A

christiancgtomas:

All right so. Straight up.

There’s no reason that Ororo already isn’t one.
The fact that it’s never been confirmed in canon ain’t shit to me.

So what constitutes an Omega-Level Mutant? Limitless power?

Sorry I don’t have receipts with me; this shit is from memory.

We know that Jean Grey (and a majority of her genetic offspring) is an Omega-Level mutant. Her telepathic abilities can basically reach any corner of the globe, while her telekinesis can affect objects on a molecular level. She’s also served as host to the Phoenix Force, who, up until quite recently (with the Phoenix Five arc), only chose Omega-Level mutants as her host.

Apparently, Franklin Richards is an Omega-Level mutant. The kid created another Earth identical to 616.

Mr. M is an Omega-Level mutant. Didn’t he turn a butterfly into a pterodactyl one time?


Fricken Iceman has been confirmed as an Omega-Level mutant. Supposedly he hasn’t tapped into his full potential (or from the last of what I read of him), but yeah, here we are.

Now let’s talk about Ororo.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose whose winds can carry her past high-speeding jets.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose lightning has affected heavy-hitting opponents the likes of Rogue, Blob, Colossus, and Red Hulk.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can affect weather-related energy patterns on a molecular level such that she has taken Norrin Radd in a duel.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who wielded her own facsimile of Thor’s Mjolnir.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose control over pressure is so precise that she has: deflected falling debris, created a buffer inside a noisy club so she and Callisto can have a quiet conversation, made a building explode from the INSIDE, and even created a dome to contain the explosion of a bomb described as a “baby nuke”.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can alter all forms of currents; including those of the ocean.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who, at one point, almost took out the entire population of Earth (humanoid and saurian) by creating the next Ice Age.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose control over air is on some Aang/Tenzin/Zaheer level shit that she can and has: kept buildings in tact when separating it from its foundation when lifting it with her winds, preventing any air from entering or leaving a man’s lungs, and increased the air pressure in one’s inner ears to give her the upper hand in a fight.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can alter her perceptions such that she can see the world in multi-colored forms of energy; even allowing her to see the electric discharges that the brain gives off to the central nervous system, giving her the advantage in hand-to-hand combat.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who took on an army of government-sanctioned sentinels (and NO, I’m not talking about Halle Berry).
Ororo Munroe is the woman who literally blessed the rains down in Africa.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who created an EMP to take out Cyborg/Clone Thor during Civil War.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose brain gives off powerful electromagnetic discharges such that even telepaths the likes of Jean Grey, Charles Xavier, and Amahl Farouk have a difficult time reading her.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who served as a host to the cosmic entity, Eternity, such that Doctor Strange can perform a surgery on the celestial being.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who has, in the past, been limited by her physical sense of body and claustrophobia; BUT who has now showing signs of overcoming all of that.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who has, one time, undid the work of a mystical being by dispersing his energy.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can conjure up an outfit with a bolt of lightning (see also: unstable molecules).
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can FEEL when water evaporates into the air.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can sense aircrafts cutting through the atmosphere.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who, essentially, is IMMUNE to all that shit.

image

And how’s about them alternate realities?

Ororo Munroe became Wonder Woman
Ororo Munroe became host to the Phoenix Force.
Ororo Munroe created an atmospherically perfect city for her to live in; a metropolitan I might add.

Since we’re talking about skill sets.
Ororo Munroe has bested Cyclops and Callisto WITHOUT her powers for a leadership position.
Ororo Munroe has held multiple dignitary statuses.
Ororo Munroe is the ONLY person in the 616 universe to serve on the X-Men, Avengers, and the Fantastic Four (SUCK IT WOLVERINE).

You asked me if Ororo could BECOME an Omega-Level mutant. If this isn’t evidence enough of her already being an Omega-Level mutant (again, just SHORT of it being CONFIRMED in canon), then I don’t know what is.

People keep thinking Ororo was given the namesake of Storm ‘cause it’s a reflection of her weather-manipulating abilities. Well, that’s part of the reason. Ororo Munroe was given that namesake because that’s what she took the world by.

the speech impediment of the 21st century (by Marc Johns)

I’ll fuck you up buddy this is not a speech impediment it’s linguistic evolution!! the existence of the phrase “Aisha was like” allows the speaker to convey whatever Aisha said without making the listener assume they’re quoting Aisha directly while still maintaining the FEELING of what Aisha said.
ie, Aisha said she didn’t want to go out with me VERSUS Aisha was like, “I’d rather kiss a Wookie”.
the addition of “XYZ was like” lets the speaker be more expressive and efficient and it is a totally valid method of communicating information!!

With the way language has evolved, this is one of the few ways I can even think of to express in casual conversation what someone said. 
"So I said to Aisha," is certainly used, but if you remove the "so," which implies casual tone ("and" can be used in the same way), you get
"I said to Aisha," which is really formal in most English dialects/variations. I don’t know about all, but in New England dialects, you sound like you’re reading aloud from a novel.
"I told Aisha," is really only used when you continue to describe, not tell, what you told her. Ex: "I told Aisha that James was too punk for her" works while, "I told Aisha, ‘James is too punk for you’" crosses the line back into formalness of the "I said."
Things like “I asked” or “I answered [with]” are similar levels of casual and efficient to the “So, I said [or say, as many conversations about the past take place in present tense anyway, as if the speaker is giving a play-by-play in the moment]” but are specific to only certain situations. 
"I was like, 'Marc Johns, what is your obsession with restoring archaic speech patterns and interfering with the natural progression of English from complex to efficient?'" envelopes all of these easily and is accessible and crisp, and allows for more variations on inflection than the others.
Of course, James is probably like, “I already fucking said that.” But eh, I tried adding on.

WHY BIG SUPERHERO MUSCLES AREN’T ‘THE SAME THING’ AS SEXY CURVES
By Andrew Wheeler
As a man who reads superhero comics, I confess that I share a commonly-held prurient interest in big-chested, long-legged heroes in skin-baring costumes that barely cover their naughty bits — or as I like to call him, Namor.
Sadly, Namor is pretty much alone in his category. Contrary to the perception that male heroes in comics are frequently sexually objectified, it’s my experience that even Namor is only rarely presented as someone to lust over. Yet I’m fortunate that my tastes run towards the Hemsworth end of the scale. Like many straight men, I admire the kind of buff dudes that are the staple of superhero comics, even though they are rarely sexualized. If I shared the tastes of most of the women I know, I think I’d find superhero comics an even more frustratingly sexless wasteland.
Big muscles are a male fantasy. That’s not to say that women aren’t ever into them, but let’s face facts; women have never been the primary target audience for superhero comics, and male heroes are drawn with big muscles anyway. Make no mistake; women are there. But those big muscles are not there for women. They’re there for men; straight men who find male power exhilarating. If women didn’t exist, superheroes would be drawn just as buff as they are today — because as far as most superhero comics are concerned, women as consumers do not exist.
Yet I’ve seen it said more times than I can count that male heroes are objectified, sexualized, idealized, just the same as the women — because they’re big and ripped and dressed in tight costumes. It’s an idea that’s completely tied up in the narcissistic notion that androphile women are attracted to the same qualities that men find appealing.
Talk to a few women, and you’ll find that’s broadly untrue.
READ MORE

I realized at some point in a long history of being around guys who call every attractive dude they see “gay”, an unsettling number of straight dudes feel super uncomfortable around what is clearly supposed to be a sexually appealing man. Even if there’s a complete absence of evidence that he’s even gay at all and he’s completely minding his own business and not interacting with them in any way, it’s like if someone is attractive enough that this particular subsect of straight dudes are aware that he is desirable they freak out with insecurity at the fact that he’s handsome and they noticed.
Best example of it I can think of was this one time sitting in a restaurant with some friends and this group of dudes who looked like Russian models or something in white tank tops and jeans walked past us and sat down at a table on the other side of the room. There was kind of a moment of silence while they were passing, and as soon as they got out of earshot a lot of guffawing like “Ha ha they’re SO GAY am I right?” followed. And it was just like… Why? Because they’re so hot that your brain unwittingly acknowledged them as sexually appealing people? That sounds like a personal problem dude, I dunno. But that kind of behaviour is so normalized and so totally accepted in at least North American culture that companies will bend over backwards to accommodate these guys. I have no idea what market share “straight dudes who are super squicked out by sexy men” make up, but I can’t imagine they’re as much of a driving economic force as they’re given credit for.
So like… People can argue about the physiques being equally idealistic up and down the block, catering to that audience that freaks the fuck out out like they just saw a big gross bug when they see an attractive man presented in an alluring way are always going to push this false equivalency angle instead of acknowledging that if men in comics were on average actually as sexualized as women in comics regularly are, everything at your LCS would look like a Glen Hanson pinup
