what i want from cap 3 is sam and steve busting their asses going across the world looking for bucky and endangering their lives every 20 minutes and it cuts to bucky who is still safely in new york eating frozen yogurt
every time you write fic where its primarily about one pairing but you include and celebrate the characters’ other friends, family and loved ones, where you acknowledge that they have other important connections
small animals everywhere are suddenly more fond of you, the wind feels gentle, and the fresh smell of cut grass and crushed flowers lifts the spirits of someone who is having a bad day
and every time you write fic that demonises, ignores, aggressively mischaracterises and stereotypes the characters’ other important connections for the sake of cheap shitty angst
an angel whispers ‘yeah but nah, mate’.
they are an Australian angel and they are extremely tired of their job. how did this happen to them, why does it keep happening, why don’t people understand that no man is an island, that gross character bashing is dull and boring and 99% time entirely out of character.
then the angel gets a latte and eats a mediocre spanakopita to help them get through the day.
my favorite tidbit about rome is that in the mid-1800s one of the popes didnt like the statues in rome having dicks so he ordered them knocked off. fast forward to the last decade or so and art historians in conjunction with the vatican are trying to erm. restore. the statues. but the dicks were just. kept in a box. so art historians are going around rome, with a box of dicks, trying to match them up to their owner.
okay but what were they doing with the dicks in the meantime
Fuck I’m walking downtown and I pass a group of guys staring at me and I think “great catcall time” but then one guy goes “you look like you could kill a man a million different ways with just your bare hands”. This. This is an acceptable comment to give a girl on the street.
i want to start an all-positive conspiracy theory movement. chemtrails promote healthy bones. the moon landing was faked to give people something to believe in. the reptilians only wear skin suits to avoid startling people.
Black Widow sends the message that girls should get what they want be looking good and manipulating people. Captain Marvel sends the message that girls should get what they want by stubbornly bulling through any obstacles.
Shut the fuck up about characters you clearly know nothing about.
Wait is this seriously a thing?
Carol teaches girls that you can be what you want and not let men take your identity from you. Natasha teaches girls that if men take your identity from you, you can take it back. Both are based on real female experience, neither is better or more important. They are both sides of the same coin.
"if men take your identity from you, you can take it back."
18. GET DRESSED! THAT’S WHAT I FORGOT. I NEED TO PUT ON ACTUAL REAL DAYTIME CLOTHES
off to fetch food!
whoops nope can’t there’s no gas in my car. gonna munch on a few things as I work and drink lots of milk from the jug to hold me over until I get home.
19. sweep around litter box
20. fill water bowls
so now gotta wait for the dryer and dishwasher to finish so I can put all that away…and it’s not dinnertime for kailey yet…and I’ve been pretty productive, so…I’m gonna take a fanfic break before cleaning the kitchen and walking the dog. because I’ve earned it.
Imagine Bucky using Steve's shield as a sled in the winter
he wasn’t counting on how little traction it would have, and they picked a big hill to try it out -
"fuck fuck FUCK i FUCKED UP—"
luckily for the world, sam was recording; a vine consisting of just bucky whizzing through the screen yelling obscenities goes viral within hours. it’s tagged #hecallshimselfthewintersoldier, and steve doesn’t stop laughing about it for days.
You're post regarding the existence of biological sex... perturbed me, to say the least, given the fact that you only cited intersex people as proof of this. I did some quick research on the subject and I learned that those fitting under the label intersex (not xx or xy, klinefelters, ambiguous genitalia, etc) and I found that such individuals make up around 1%-2% of the human population. As a result I must ask, and please understand this is an honest question, have you ever heard of an outliar?
Yes, I have heard of an outlier. I was fortunate enough to receive a high school education in mathematics, which got me fairly well-acquainted with the concept of outliers, multiplication, basic fractions, and Pythagoras’ bloody Theorem, among other things.
Now, please allow me to ask you a question:
Do you realise what you have just said?
It’s not a trick question, by the way. I am legitimately, apprehensively curious as to whether or not you realise exactly what it is you are suggesting to me.
Did you know there are approximately seven billion people alive in this world right now? Approximately 7,255,000,000, and counting, in fact.
And since you’re interested in maths, do you know what 1% of that number is?
But that was an easy one. Do you know what 2% of that number is?
Of course you do. It’s 145,100,000.
And do you realise what you have just said?
Would you like to know some other interesting statistics? I’m sure you would have answered yes, because you are a curious mind. Let’s talk about countries.
Did you know that Japan, Vietnam, Seychelles, Greenland, Germany, Australia, Palestine, Mexico, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Afghanistan, South Korea, and France each have populations under 145,100,000 as of the most recent records.
Entire countries with fewer than 145,100,000 inhabitants.
Did you know that, in fact, only nine countries have over 145,100,000 inhabitants? In order, those countries are China, India, the United States, Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh, and Russia.
And so I will ask one more time, for emphasis:
Do you realise what you have just said to me?
I’m sure you know - being so well-versed in mathematics as you are - what happens to outliers. If nothing else, our dear friend Spiders Georg should have shown you what usually happens to outliers.
They do not get counted. They get ignored. They get deleted.
What you have just said to me is this:
Approximately 145,100,000 people do not count to you. You do not respect them. You do not acknowledge them. You do not care about them. You see them as numbers. You see them as things, not people. You see them as less than yourself.
I find that suggestion disturbing and repulsive in ways I can scarcely put into words, and frankly, I feel that same repulsion about you by association. What you have said to me is nothing short of disgusting and inhuman. I am so disappointed in you.
However, you are quite right about me only citing a specifically intersex-oriented website. To be honest, that was because it was an easily accessible, informative read for people on the topic of physiological variation, to prove my point on there variation in the first place, and my thinking was that if people were curious and wanted to learn more about the fantastic spectrum of human existence, they were clever enough to, say, research it for themselves. To use the Google, as the kids these days call it. Perhaps that was a mistake on my part. Perhaps I shouldn’t have assumed that level of independent learning ability.
Seeing that you mentioned it, I assume you have looked into Klinefelter syndrome and ‘ambiguous genitalia’, and I therefore have absolutely no idea why you’re “perturbed” about this.
The purpose of that post I made was to show that sexual morphology is not as simple as ‘male’ or ‘female’, and neither is it as simple as ‘penis’ or ‘vagina’. Gender is a spectrum, and so is sexual morphology.
This may or may not come as a surprise to you, depending on whether or not you’ve actually seen other people’s junk, but almost no-one has the same junk as someone else. There is no factory where the Perfect Standard Junk gets made; there is no perfect standard junk. Even for people who are not considered ‘ambiguous’ or intersex, there is a lot of physical variation in every way you can think of, pretty much.
And it’s all okay. That’s the point of this.
People should never be shamed for their bodies. They should not be excluded or discriminated against or harmed or in any way made to feel lesser because their body is a bit different from yours. Like, for goodness’ sake. You shouldn’t need for someone to tell you that.
And yet, here you are, telling me that 145,100,000 people are outliers.
Well, you know what? As far as I’m concerned, that’s 145,100,000 reasons to care about this.
So it’s time to change your tune or go far, far, far away, you unbelievable wally. It’s your choice now.
