“…trolling used to be pretty funny and almost entirely harmless. Trolling, despite the modern usage, does not mean “the act of pissing somebody off and laughing about their anger.” It is “the act of pissing somebody off BASED ON SOMETHING COMPLETELY MEANINGLESS and laughing about their MISPLACED anger.” It isn’t considered trolling to leave a comment full of racial epithets and laugh when people “don’t get it.” It is trolling if you leave a comment insisting on the wrong information about something irrelevant – how many runes are on a Stargate, for example (everybody knows its 12) – and wait for the ONE guy that just can’t let the transgression pass. If you start a fake fight with Prof. Stargate, dragging him deeper and deeper until hopefully, finally, even he has to stop and think “wait a minute, this is ridiculous,” that is trolling. That’s the difference: No actual harm is caused, and even the victim can eventually get in on the joke. “Trolling” isn’t referring to hiding behind a fortification and trying to hurt people like the mythical creature. It’s referring to the style of fishing – you drag bait across the bottom hoping to get a rare bite. It’s not ‘bait’ if you’re earnestly spouting your misogynistic beliefs and somebody gets upset. There’s nothing funny about entirely justified anger.”—
There are currently eight films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with four more set to be released over the next few years. None of these films are led by a female character, despite the variety of female heroes that Marvel has to offer. Characters such as Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, She-Hulk and Sif would all make a strong and compelling protagonist if given the opportunity.
We are not petitioning for any specific character, but quite simply the chance for a Marvel superheroine to feature in a film of her own. We want to demonstrate that there is support for such a film, and we ask that Marvel recognise this and put into motion the creation of a full-length feature film with a superheroine cast in the protagonist role.
Texas state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte (D) announced her bid for lieutenant governor on Saturday. Speaking at the San Antonio College gymnasium before hundreds of supporters, Van de Putte made her plans to join Sen. Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) on the campaign trail official.
Fuck yeah! Let’s not forget state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte who helped Wendy Davis during her filibuster of the abortion law!
Famous for her great line, “At what point must a female senator raise her hand or her voice to be recognized over her male colleagues?”
I am just sick of these people and their stories. I am BORED.
Show me some Sanitation Workers.
HHAs and CNAs and Registered nurses especially those who gotta look after old people. Hell show me some VITAS personnel who gotta look after the dying. Hospice workers. You get the drift.
Funeral Home personnel
Scientists that aren’t working for the military. Hell gimme a nice series focused in colleges and universities that completely tears up the professiorial culture and lays it all out there.
Social workers (Like how is there not a series about a social work office and the situations that the employees get up to. Don’t tell me you cant get episodic gripping television from that shit. You would be lying.)
Who else do you think is way under represented in film and tv?
“If men’s kindnesses toward women were really only kindnesses, a man would be pleased if another man or woman offered these kindnesses to him. He would be pleased if another man or woman lit his cigarette or pulled out his chair for him. He would be pleased to derive his income, prestige, power and even his identity from his partner. He would take pride in another man’s or woman’s offer to walk him to his car at night. But in fact, “one of the very nasty things that can happen to a man is his being treated or seen as a woman, or womanlike.”—(Frye 1983, p. 136).”

“Until now. Sleepy Hollow (along with the dear departed Ugly Betty) has ushered in a new era in which POC TV protagonists are allowed to head the most ridiculous, campy shows out there. Sleepy Hollow’s Abbie is not a bland token, a symbol of black victimization, a mockable ethnic caricature, or a lesson for white people. She is the kickass action hero of an absurd, campy mess of a show that has little educational or moral value.
And ain’t that fab? Most TV writers still treat POC characters too seriously or not seriously enough, but our wonderful Abbie lives in a show that operates between those two poles. To be camp, a text must make audiences feel a mix of love and detached amusement, and Abbie is a character human enough to love even if she lives in a hilariously nonsensical universe.”—
no matter when or why or how a girl says how they don’t feel comfortable in a fandom because a majority of the guys in it are creepy and gross, it always turns into a bunch of guys screaming about how they’re not like that and “omg why don’t u understand OUR struggles, why do u hate men so much!!!!!”
and when these same dudes are asked what the fuck they do to deal with the creepy dudes, they’ll either fall uncomfortably silent or get really indignant and pissy like WELL I’D SAY SOMETHING BUT IT WOULDN’T SOLVE ANYTHING, OMG UR SUCH AN ASSHOLE!!!!!
it sucks that dudes get branded as creepy and that’s definitely not fair or right, but when you’re not doing anything to prevent that shit from spreading, how the fuck can you really blame someone for thinking you’re creepy too
don’t be so entitled to think you should automatically be trusted, christ
Historian Tracy Borman dispels the myth that Anne Boleyn meant nothing to Elizabeth or that she was ashamed of her mother. Starkey talks of how Elizabeth never mentioned Anne at all and Weir mentions that Elizabeth only talked of Anne twice, but Borman talks about how we have to consider Elizabeth’s actions to really see the high regard and affection she held for her mother:-
A high proportion of the servants in Elizabeth’s household were Boleyn relatives.
The locket ring she wore up to her death contained two miniatures – one of herself and one of her mother.
Although it may have been dangerous for Elizabeth to speak out about her mother, who was still considered by many to be “The Great Whore” or a traitor, her actions speak louder than words.
