“But I am very poorly today and very stupid and hate everybody and everything.”
- Charles Darwin, in a letter dated October 1, 1861 [x]

I have a few copies of “Playboy” from the 1970s stashed away somewhere. One of them has a letter where a guy writes in saying, “I met this really gorgeous, sweet woman, and we were planning to get married, but she sat me down yesterday and told me that she had a sex change before she met me. Mr. Hefner, should I marry someone who used to be a man?” and the response was, “So she had a sex change, big whoop. Would you be asking this question if she’d made any other change in her life before she met you? You love the woman she is now, and that’s all that should matter. If you want kids you can adopt or something.”
I feel so conflicted right now
That awkward moment when Hugh Hefner is more trans-positive than most feminists of the same era.
He didn’t love easily. Weasleys weren’t supposed to be that way, but so it was. No one’s fault. He just didn’t.
Charlie had dated at Hogwarts and after, and he’d liked the girls (and that one guy) he’d chosen to share a little of himself with. He liked laughing with them and getting to know their private selves and snuggling down into beds or tents or a canoe (also with that one guy). Sometimes he’d even tricked himself into thinking there was love there, true and proper love. He’d sit off by himself and probe what squishy feelings he could, wishing he had a better, more accurate measuring tool. Yes, he would think. This is love. This right here.
But inevitably something inside his chest would switch off. Numbness would hit like a dragon’s tail thumping you in the back, knocking the wind out and you down. Charlie would avoid whomever was currently calling him darling and it was hard to miss how much easier it was to breathe when he was away and on his own. He’d push himself, though, see how long he could go being part of a pair. (It was scary how simply the other person could be fooled. A smile here, a swift kiss there.) But once the illusion couldn’t sustain itself any longer, he’d have to hurt yet another person, who’d only wanted what they thought he was agreeing to give them.
Merlin, was it ever exhausting.
And maybe that was the problem. Maybe love was supposed to be this exhausting and this terrible and nobody had ever told him.
Charlie was running through all his failed relationships again as he walked down the gravel lane to his rented cottage, battening down the bad feelings he could only to have them rise up again. That’s when he saw her.
She was thin - much too thin - and her fur was matted down in clumps. She had a limp. But her bright green eyes shone through the bleak pain. Charlie scooped up the small striped cat and carried her home in his dragonhide jacket. He couldn’t just leave her.
She didn’t purr until much later. After she was fed and fed, after she lapped up cool water, after she was brushed and after she had crawled into bed with Charlie, snuggling down into the perfect space up against his warm chest. She purred, loudly, sharing her grateful little vibrations with the Weasley boy who was always a bit numb to the world.
It didn’t dawn on him just then, but Charlie did eventually figure it out. This was love.
I rendered Milo Manara’s Spider-Woman pose in 3D.
This is hilarious.

WAIT WHAT CHRISTIAN KANE CUT HIS HAIR IDK HOW I FEEL ABOUT THIS.
This is the third time you’ve trusted a disembodied voice, you don’t get to be surprised anymore when it turns out to be a demon.
Left-handed and LGBT people make up about the same percentage of the overall population. We would be horrified to meet someone who says, “I love you, and I want to have children with you, but if they are left-handed, I will not love and care about them and will drive them from our lives.” That doesn’t make any sense. Why would you create a family with that person? And it makes just as little sense to hate a gay kid, or marry someone who is going to hate your gay kid. We don’t pick who our children are going to be. When we choose to be parents, we are taking on the responsibility, obligation and honor to love the children we adopt or create. If someone is not prepared to cherish and celebrate a gay child, they have no business being a parent. Our kids didn’t choose to be created, and they didn’t choose us to be their parents. And every child deserves their parent’s unconditional love. Every child.
piercing in old age are very cool =))

"Male writers, and I say this with all love and respect, often want to make a woman either the angel or the whore - make her the witch, or put her on the pedestal. When people ask me about Margaery, I say they’re not mutually exclusive. You don’t have to be practical and politically savvy and not be a good person." - Natalie Dormer
this is what is going on in scotland right now.
dont ignore this.
there is NO coverage of the rioting on the news which is why its so important that you dont ignore this.
please stay safe if you live in scotland.
my partner actually went to the yes rally in george square a couple days ago and said the no guys were indeed doing nazi salutes
The unionists have set fire to the building housing The Herald.
A 15 year old boy is dead.
The riots continue.
My friends have been trying to get out of Glasgow and have been attacked.
Your voter status doesn’t matter to these people, they will attack for no reason.
Gay SNP councillor Austin Sheridan has been subjected to an unprovoked attack simply because he is a gay man who voted yes.
Homes have been broken into.
There are riots on the streets even outside of Glasgow.
The BNP, UKIP, Britain First and The Orange Lodge are attacking peaceful protestors with flares.
LGBT people are being singled out by the above groups.
DON’T LET THIS ABHORRENT SITUATION CONTINUE.
DO NOT LET THIS BE HIDDEN.
PLEASE, DO WHAT YOU CAN.
MY CITY AND COUNTRY IS UTTER CHAOS.
I am just trying to stay safe, for now.
I am lucky enough to live in a tiny village in the Borders where we’ve escaped any sort of trouble - but this is terrifying. This is happening an hour away from me right now.
The new IOS8 update contains an app named Health which CANNOT BE DELETED.
The app allows you to choose which aspects of your health you choose to monitor, but available categories include “Body Measurements”, which includes body weight, and “Fitness”, which contains sections for calories consumed and calories burned.
While this may be useful for those looking to monitor their fitness, it could be triggering and harmful to those suffering with or in recovery from eating disorders, especially in sufferers with obsessive compulsive tendencies they find it very hard to abstain from, such as calorie counting, body measuring and weighing.
Whilst of course the app cannot force you to use it, it cannot be deleted, so will be present within your apps and can be a source of feelings of temptation to record numbers and of guilt and judgement for not using the app.
If you personally feel you could not emotionally handle the presence of this app, and it would be detrimental to your recovery, please do not download IOS8. I do not know if a new IOS can be avoided permanently (if anyone has any information on this please do add it to the post), but if it cannot then please use the time you have to prepare yourself for the app, and to reinforce reminders that you do not have to calorie count, you do not have to weigh yourself, you do not owe proof of exercise to anyone, person or app.reblog this please - it is so incredibly shitty of apple to do this
If you do want to download the new IOS but want to avoid the app, consider tucking it on a separate screen away from all your other apps, or create an “unused” category and toss it with the stocks app or something. Hopefully out of sight will eventually become out of mind. Take care of yourself.
