So many of you are too young to remember why Diana, Princess of Wales, was such a remarkable person. She pissed off most of Buckingham Palace, was her own woman, and wasn’t afraid to get down out of the motorcade and be with the regular people.
She was a regular person, just with a title and fancy clothes.
Among the first big “names” to visit, talk to, and even touch those dying of AIDS in English hospitals, Diana’s trademark was her ability to break down insurmountable barriers.
Beyonce let out a call and all of the sparkles in the world assembled together to make that dress, I am so emotional right now don’t touch me
That dress is the middle of a magical girl transformation sequence. Beyonce is levelling up god help us all.

Debunking more lies and racist misinformation about black men. Stop the ignorance and start to question why these myths exist in the first place, if not to demonize black men and promote the image of us as inherently criminal and violent and incapable of being educated.
This coupled with the recent realization that black women are the most educated group…
It seems like there is this always present “when is the ‘black community’ going to pull themselves up from the bootstraps” question that floats around everywhere I go. Yet on micro and macro levels black excellence and success is only growing exponentially with each year - despite racism, institutional barriers, lack of privilege, colorblind ideologies and rampant gentrification.
Now imagine the gains we’d be able to make if people were willing to have these conversations and actually think critically about our society and culture
actually going to die because of the cute
I don’t get it. Are we sending the Star Wars galaxy a zoo?
A friendly reminder that Dean will fight and kill any supernatural being that crosses his path, but when he’s being beaten mercilessly by
or his angel
he won’t fight back.
This gets worse each time I reblog it.
#because he thinks he deserves it
I love Tumblr.
The red light one kills me every time

psa: feminazi is a fucking disgusting term that compares fighting for women’s rights to genocide.
it was coined by rush limbaugh (that alone should be enough to make you stay far far away from it)
it is a racist term, and it is disrespectful to marginalized groups who suffered in nazi germany (so jews, rroma, lgbt folks, people with disabilities, etc.)
do not use it.
if you disagree with feminists: do not use it
if you are a feminist: do not reclaim it
Caught wind of an open-discussion article that’s basically being dominated by casual heterosexists and decided NO SIR, THAT WILL NOT DO and brought some ship-free logic to dump on their heads. NB, it does lean on/reiterate a few other pre-existing meta posts by other fans. Reblarging here because why the hell not.
(Dean Winchester’s sexuality seems to have become a pet issue of mine lately. Pansexual mythology buff excited about the prospect of a lead character in his favourite paranormal show being revealed as canonically bi? Who’d’a thought!)
In discussing Dean’s sexuality you first have to understand that he’s the embodiment of several thematic forces in SPN: the ordinary human hero (vs Sam as the supernatural hero), the fixed underclass (vs Sam’s upward mobility and class-passing), practical/mechanical intelligence (vs Sam’s academic intelligence), the soldier/good son/Michael archetype (vs Sam as the individualist/rebellious son/Lucifer archetype), the nurturer/caregiver (vs Sam as the son/younger brother), and especially relevant to this article, traditionally masculine (vs Sam’s more modern sensitivity).
Now here’s the thing. SPN is extremely subversive when it comes to the examination of class and masculinity, and these two things are deeply intertwined.
This post is so beautiful.
The noise I made when I saw this post was not human I swear
