So I created this blog with the idea in mind that I would write about my life both past and present like a diary, that never happened. This is basically a post-whatever-the-fuck-I-feel-like blog. You will get a fair share of fandom, consumerism, depressing things, and equal rights issue things.
I've recently been checking out D.C. Comics from the Library and reviewing them on my youtube channel, which you should totally check out.
About me: I'm Artsy, nerdy, and Girly; mostly ace, largely aromatic, cis-female and am basically white (my dad was a MoC) and disabled (I have narcolepsy and a whole host of other sleep and body functioning problems). I support POC, LGBTQIA rights, feminism/womanism and body positivity. I believe in empathy, and do not think you need to be a part of a minority to believe and fight for equality.
I hope to be a fashion designer. and to write my own graphic novel
I hate racists, sexists and homophobes. I try really hard to do the right thing, but I make mistakes and am open to opinions.
I will reblog things that probably have to do with art, fashion, pretty things, books, Marvel things, D.C. comics T.V. shows (Doctor Who, star trek, Elementary, Supernatural), children's T.V. Shows (Adventure Time, Detentionaire, Motor City, etc.), things that are clever, and 'social justice' things. I'm Kinda a spaz, and am the queen of procrastination.
abortion won’t stop because you made it nearly impossible to have clinical support
LGBT people won’t stop loving each other because you banned marriage equality
sex won’t stop because of your abstinence only education programs
LIFE WON’T STOP BECAUSE YOU DEEMED IT IMMORAL IT WILL JUST BECOME MORE RISKY

"You mustn’t think poorly of your son because he is homosexual. He is not at all to blame for his orientation. It is neither a vice nor a crime, indeed not even an illness, but instead a variation, one of the borderline cases that occur frequently in nature."
Okay, okay. Now, this is a quote from a movie made in 1919 and yet nearly one hundred years later this fine concept of people are simply people and people are different from one another but are still people isn’t comprehended by present day society? Man, that’s fucked up.
Oh god. It went on to call society out on it’s bullshit and how homosexuality is condemned because people don’t know shit about it.
(Though I’m not a fan of it being called a condition. But this is still really important.)
"Your son suffers not from his condition, but rather from the false judgment of it. This is the legal and social condemnation of his feelings along with widespread misconceptions about their expression."
FUCKING FUCK. The main character went to see a sexologist to see what was wrong with him and I’m just !!!!!! at the response.
"Love for one’s own sex can be just as pure and noble as that for the opposite sex. This orientation is to be found among many respectable people in all levels of society."
Man, it finished so strong, though. Like, I don’t remember the exact quote, but the main character got really depressed and did the thing…
This movie referenced trans people and androgynous individuals and it’s just….
BUT THE SEXOLOGIST WAS LIKE
"Through knowledge is justice."
And that’s just really applicable to everything.
"But Bi = 2, so bisexuals can only be attracted to 2 genders ever."
Not bisexual? No one gives a shit about your deep fried turd of an opinion about our identity.
isn’t it interesting that when a male celebrity calls themselves a feminist there’s no thinkpieces about whether or not they’re REALLY a feminist but when Beyoncé does it there’s ten million poorly-written editorials the next day
it’s almost like Joseph Gordon Levitt’s opinion is seen as inherently valid and Beyoncé’s is seen as inherently questionable
I wonder what about these people might be the difference here
I’m stumped, I can’t possibly figure this out

It’s amazing when hidden treasures and gems are discovered! The New York Times reported that what may be the earliest surviving film with a Black cast, made in 1913, was found in the film archives of the Museum of Modern Art.
