If you’re against characters with unconfirmed sexualities being headcanoned as bi, consider this: you’re a biphobe.

OH CLARA

OKAY THAT’S AN INTERESTING TWIST

I’m still kinda convinced they just couldn’t get the actress back for this season but THAT IS INTERESTING

I’m so bored with Four and his Zairon storyline. He’s acting like such an idiot. I hope he ends up with his memories wiped again somehow, cause they are not doing him any good.

happyquinncurtis:

honestly? Solara doesn’t strike me as much more than a cheap replacement for Nyx because that writers realized that killing her off was a huge mistake

“THANK YOU, REALLY”

Don’t get too excited. Not a lot of skin left on some. But can they still be ID’d? I’m already on it.

there’s a 2223% chance that at some point in Whedon’s Batgirl movie Bruce is going to tell Babs that as an untrained civilian she should probably not be a vigilante and she’s going to sneer “what, because I’m a GIRL?” and then mainstream media is going to shit out a dozen “Joss Whedon’s Batgirl is a win for #feminism!!!!” articles

These two were supposedly based on a real couple, who said they wouldn’t board a life boat as long as there were younger people still aboard the ship. They both went below deck, presumably to their room, and that’s the last time they were seen.

;________________;

Isador & Ida Straus

The couple had been married for 41 years at the time of the disaster. They raised six children together, and were almost inseparable. On the rare occasion that they were apart, they wrote each other every day. They even celebrated their birthdays on the same day, although they were well apart from one another. During the sinking, Titanic’s officers pleaded with the 63 year old Ida to board a lifeboat and escape the disaster, but she repeatedly refused to leave her husband. Instead, she placed her maid in a lifeboat, taking her fur coat off and handing it to the maid while saying, “I won’t need this anymore”. At one point, she was convinced to enter one of the last two lifeboats, but jumped out as her husband walked away to rejoin him.

When last seen by witnesses, they were standing on deck, holding each other in a tight embrace. Their funeral drew some 6,000 mourners at Carnegie Hall.

A monument to them still stands in a Bronx cemetery, it’s inscription reads: “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.”

why wasn’t the movie about them

why wasn’t the movie about them

Another few bits of trivia: 

Both were Jewish, and Isidor was one of the co-owners of Macy’s. 

The maid, Ellen Bird, went to their family to return the fur coat, specifically to their eldest daughter, Sara Straus Hess. She was gently refused, with Sara telling Ellen that Ida had given her the coat and she should keep it.

When her husband urged her to get into a boat, Ida told him “We have lived together for many years. Where you go, I go.”Her words were witnessed by those already in Lifeboat No. 8 as well as many others who were on the boat deck at the time. Eyewitnesses described the scene as a “most remarkable exhibition of love and devotion.”

Long story short, there should absolutely be a movie about them. 

Also just to add, because she refused to go without him, they offered Isidor a place in the boat, but he said that he couldn’t take the place of a woman or child, or even younger man, so he stayed and because she loved him so, Ida stayed as well

I swear it’s like all f/f ships are like knowing you are boarding the titanic.

The Titanic had a 38% survival rate, wlw on television score a whopping 16% survival rate (calculated from these links). Yeah. The Titanic is safer compared to the gauntlet wlw characters  run on television.

take a shot every time a bi character says bisexual on tv you will be drunk in exactly never

bonus round: take a shot every time another character says the bisexual ‘turned’ gay/straight depending who they are dating at that moment

Blessed scenes

the reason there are few/no male domestic violence shelters is because males haven’t made themselves any. 

do you guys seriously think women’s shelters were just HANDED to women, and that we didn’t have to fight for decades for them amongst massive pushback? do you think there wasn’t huge controversy surrounding the first womens’ shelters? do you think there weren’t violent protesters? do you think founders weren’t harassed with rape and death threats? we had to work for ours, you can work for yours.

if you want domestic violence shelters for men/transwomen, MAKE YOUR OWN. i’ll support you in that. most feminists will support you in that. but don’t make us do the work for you. we did all our own work ourselves, so can you. don’t rely on women to solve your problems.

Here in the US there were, and are now, shelters in most cities and towns, for men only. Go back in history and you will see it was a crime to shelter a woman who escaped from an abusive husband or father. We had to get the laws changed so women were not forced to return to their abuser and then we built shelters.

PSA: Battered women’s shelters (as we called them back then) were sometimes kept secret from the police because cops would try to take the woman “home” or inform the abuser where he could find her. Shelters defied the law. They were acts of  civil disobedience. rebellion, grassroots direct action to save women’s lives.

could you even imagine the first time males mansplained creation to women… “actually, we are NOT here because of an endless chain of mothers like you giving birth going back eons in time. uhhhhh no … not at all. it really started when my bro this all powerful dude who lives in the sky made the first man and then a dumb woman who was TOTALLY inferior to him. yeah it’s surprising but legit. the wind told me when i was jerking off down by the river. i can’t prove any of this but if you don’t believe me i’ll kill you”

This post is cool because, according to my biology textbook, until very late in the development of science, men actually thought babies didn’t even share their mother’s bloodline, only their father’s. I mean, how much do you have to twist your percepction to come up with this

What the fuck, it’s in the mom’s tummy

They basically thought that the sperm contained a full human being and the womb was just the place where it grew.

Men have always overestimated their own importance.

“Men have always overestimated their own importance.”!!!!!!!!

for real guys look up the concept of women as ‘empty vessels’…john locke believed it, & art historians for a long time believed that women were incapable of creativity (usually founded on being empty vessels)

i remember reading a victorian novel that mentioned that women inherently lack the masculine power of creation/creativity and you just put that into an entirely new and weighty context

Chechnya: Reports of high domestic violence, “honor killings” of lesbians

Like this is a serious issue and I don’t want to undermine it by any means but I keep seeing this presented as an “LGBT” issue with 0 information about bi or trans people………. either they’re not being targeted and you need to stop using bullshit umbrella terms or you need to acknowledge that these people ARE being targeted and give 👏 us 👏 more 👏 info.

This is about LESBIANs.

Yes GAY MEN are Prisoned & MURDERED there as well.

However ONLY lesbians ARE MURDERED in the name of HONOR while doing so.

ok but you KNOW that any woman with a female partner will be targeted. “are bisexuals affected???” yes. we know the answer. whenever people are being targeted for same-sex attraction, no one is going around asking “are you hypothetically sexually available to men?” before they attack women for being involved with other women. i know no one actually believes bi women are allowed to exist in happy, socially accepted relationships with each other just because they are capable of being attracted to men. studies often use “same sex attracted” and “gay” synonymously, and i hate seeing the LG community use that erasure to try to pretend bisexuals aren’t affected.

Is Trump aware that “We Are The Champions”, the song he walked out on stage to at the Republican National Convention, was written and performed by a queer, non-christian, middle eastern man who died of AIDS? Basically everything his campaign is against?

Maybe don’t call a gay man who died of aids “queer”

did you just fucking call Freddie Mercury queer???? what the hell is your problem?? 

do you think queer was a cute self-identifier gay men used in the 70′s??? do you think Freddie had the privilege to call himself that in a safe liberal environment when he’s been a icon for gay people and the victim of a horrible thing attributed to homosexuality being a sin? Educate yourself and get out of this bubble because you just disrespected someone’s memory due to your own ignorance

he wasn’t middle eastern either lol he was gujarati

This site is insane lmfao

I don’t get my generation calling gay men from a different time “q***r”. I really don’t. Also how do you not know Freddie’s background?! Also what the hell does “non-Christian” mean? LOL

he was zoroastrian and pretty explicit about it, this entire post is a trainwreck

freddie mercury was bisexual. this post can’t be salvaged.
