This is a personal blog where I post and reblog about me, fandoms, history and anything I find interesting.
Feel free to speak to me if you wish so. Let's be friends!
Well, I’m leaving. Goodbye, everybody, see you in four days~!
In the books Renly and Loras being gay lovers was only alluded to, and known only by a handful of people. On the show, everyone in the Seven Kingdoms and their horse knows this, and spew an endless barrage of lowbrow gay jokes that I would’ve found beneath me as a teen.
I don’t get why Joffrey would openly insult Renly this way in front of the Tyrells, as it would remind ecerone of their duplicity. Then again, it was never established on the show, that when Renly’s armor appeared in the Battle of Blackwater, people thought it was his ghost, and Lannister/Tyrell propaganda spread the legend that his ghost had come to absolve his sin of treason by defending his King Joffrey at his most perilous hour from his murderous brother Stannis.
Lastly, they introduce a bisexual character and of course they have him making eyes with the only established gay character. Sigh. As a guy who likes guys, this pandering featuring one token gay love scene per season needs to stop. Not as bad last season where they had Loras who had just lost his lifelong best friend and lover instantly jump into bed with the first boy who sets off his gaydar and spill all his secrets to.
I’m fine with and even prefer most liberties taken with the source material. I just wish they would have Loras as a despondent man, who had lost the love of the life, who took the first chance he got to join the Kingsguard, and who distrusts the Martells because the Dornish are the historical enemies of The Reach especially Prince Oberyn who crippled his brother Wyllas. I don’t like this stereotypical gay man we’re presented with, who is sexually promiscuous and indiscriminate and vain.

there’s this car where i’m from, known pretty well by people as “the duck car” and i finally saw it
You want to say Hi to the cute girl on the subway. How will she react? Fortunately, I can tell you with some certainty, because she’s already sending messages to you. Looking out the window, reading a book, working on a computer, arms folded across chest, body away from you = do not disturb. So, y’know, don’t disturb her. Really. Even to say that you like her hair, shoes, or book. A compliment is not always a reason for women to smile and say thank you. You are a threat, remember? You are Schrödinger’s Rapist. Don’t assume that whatever you have to say will win her over with charm or flattery. Believe what she’s signaling, and back off.
If you speak, and she responds in a monosyllabic way without looking at you, she’s saying, “I don’t want to be rude, but please leave me alone.” You don’t know why. It could be “Please leave me alone because I am trying to memorize Beowulf.” It could be “Please leave me alone because you are a scary, scary man with breath like a water buffalo.” It could be “Please leave me alone because I am planning my assassination of a major geopolitical figure and I will have to kill you if you are able to recognize me and blow my cover.”
On the other hand, if she is turned towards you, making eye contact, and she responds in a friendly and talkative manner when you speak to her, you are getting a green light. You can continue the conversation until you start getting signals to back off.
The fourth point: If you fail to respect what women say, you label yourself a problem.
There’s a man with whom I went out on a single date—afternoon coffee, for one hour by the clock—on July 25th. In the two days after the date, he sent me about fifteen e-mails, scolding me for non-responsiveness. I e-mailed him back, saying, “Look, this is a disproportionate response to a single date. You are making me uncomfortable. Do not contact me again.” It is now October 7th. Does he still e-mail?
Yeah. He does. About every two weeks.
This man scores higher on the threat level scale than Man with the Cockroach Tattoos. (Who, after all, is guilty of nothing more than terrifying bad taste.) You see, Mr. E-mail has made it clear that he ignores what I say when he wants something from me. Now, I don’t know if he is an actual rapist, and I sincerely hope he’s not. But he is certainly Schrödinger’s Rapist, and this particular Schrödinger’s Rapist has a probability ratio greater than one in sixty. Because a man who ignores a woman’s NO in a non-sexual setting is more likely to ignore NO in a sexual setting, as well.
So if you speak to a woman who is otherwise occupied, you’re sending a subtle message. It is that your desire to interact trumps her right to be left alone. If you pursue a conversation when she’s tried to cut it off, you send a message. It is that your desire to speak trumps her right to be left alone. And each of those messages indicates that you believe your desires are a legitimate reason to override her rights.
For women, who are watching you very closely to determine how much of a threat you are, this is an important piece of data.
— an excerpt from Phaedra Starling’s “Schrödinger’s Rapist: or a guy’s guide to approaching strange women without being maced” (via lostgrrrls) HOLY FUCK THE TRUTH. Can every one of my male followers read this? And please, before you get defensive (“I would never rape anyone!”) keep in mind, women being afraid of Shrodinger’s Rapists (oh my god i still can’t get over the encompassing brilliance of this phrase) is a conditioned, learned response from being immersed in rape culture and the evolution of sexism and sexual violence in our society from the day we’re born. And unfortunately, it’s very difficult to unlearn without the efforts of all genders to dismantle it. Which is where you come in. (via lil-ith)

Now that the reveal at the Good Omens Exchange is over, I proudly present to you:
A Day - Four times Crowley and Aziraphale are taken for a couple and one time they’re not. for Mozzarellaroses
With two entire day shifts and a slight extension I DID IT and it was so. much. fun. Also I’m super happy about how well received it was.
Tomorrow and until Sunday I’ll be at this traditional semi-camping thing with my paternal family. It’s sad how I it used to make me so exited, but now I don’t feel like going or meeting my family at all… Oh well, I can enjoy it once I’m there.
Ah, Numbered Lithograph was everything I was promised, what a great fanfic. I had forgotten how much empathy Lovino can make me feel, my precious, precious Lovi. I also remembered why is that I ship spamano so hard.
Remember that episode of courage the cowardly dog where a furry bunny runs away from abusive dog dude to be with her lesbian cat lover
because that is all you need to remember
This episode is actually what got Courage taken off the air because a coalition of moms thought it carried lesbian symbolism and they threatened to sue the network if the show wasn’t removed from the air.
Many people at Cartoon Network cite Courage as their favourite sow during its run and say that they would not have taken it off, had they had a real choice.
So the show ran the remaining episodes and was not renewed for another season.
This is incorrect. Or, at least from what I researched, it is.
The reasons I saw were that the show finished its contract of 4 seasons and 13 episodes, it had too much dark humor (like invader zim) and scared kids (it scared the fuck outta me, especially that episode with the mummy and the slab), or it wasn’t as popular as it seemed and lost money.
I saw nothing about these “lesbian lovers” and the parents threatening to sue the channel. Also, this episode, titled “the Mask”, was in season 2 while the whole show lasted 4 seasons.
This information is incorrect. Please do not use misinformation to fight homophobic discrimination. We already have enough of that to make up bullshit to add onto it and make people angry for no reason.
Um I lived off of this show and the fox is a dude. People will do anything to get notes and its so sad.
As much as clockworkquartet is correct, the episode ” The Mask” IS in season 4. (episode 7)
And no murmaidkissez, KITTY is NOT a male fox. There is a very popular reoccurring character in the show that looks like Kitty in this episode. But the character your probably thinking of is also a cat, and it’s name is actually Katz.
Re-watch the episode if you don’t believe me.
There was Eren/Jean in my dream last night, which is really curious since I don’t even ship them.
