THIS.

I have never thought about it in this context
that’s actually really, really creepy.

I… fuck.

Yeah, basically.

I once pointed this out to my mother and she just stared at me, in stunned silence for ages. 

There will always be a girl who is less sober, less secure, with less friends walking in a darker part of town. I want her safe just as much as I want me safe.

"[TW: rape]
“This is why a rapist does not have to be physically violent, or state in clear terms that he intends physical violence, for forceful rape to occur. When somebody has illustrated that they are willing and able to step so far outside of the boundaries of human safety, a victim has every reason to expect that there are no boundaries on their behavior. If this person is willing to have sex with somebody who very clearly does not want sex, that person is probably also willing to, or at least capable of, causing physical injury when the lack of consent turns to a physical struggle….
A rapist does not have to use violence. Initiating sex without consent already indicates how little the rapist cares about your consent in the act. How far does that lack of concern extend? Is this the kind of rapist that could continue to enjoy sex when their victim is in obvious physical pain? Could they enjoy causing the pain? Is this the kind of rapist that will happily kill their victim afterwards? A victim has no idea, whether the rapist is a stranger, acquaintance, friend, family member, boyfriend, or husband. Because if a victim could look at a person and know that they were capable of rape, they would not be within physical proximity in the first place. A victim doesn’t know their rapist is capable of rape until a rape begins; and once a victim knows that, they have no idea what else their rapist is capable of. A rapist does not have to threaten further violence. The rape is threat enough.”"

Ya know something interesting about the Marvel/DC ‘rivalry’ on tumblr?

Everyone acts like DC is this super regressive company compared to Marvel when DC really did more progressive stuff first and is still doing so.

Women as heroes?
DC’s had Wonder Woman as one of their…

There’s a psychological term for this, where basically people react to change rather than the status quo. Somebody who made $35000/Year and just got a $5000/Year raise is going to be happier than somebody who makes $60000/Yr. 

DC had a stronger status quo, but Marvel is making more of an effort to CHANGE that status quo right now. 

The current lionization of Marvel and hatred of DC is just that , current. Right now, Marvel seems more committed to creating comic books that appeal to a diverse audience (Young Avengers, an all-female team getting the unmodified X-Men Title, Black Widow, Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk), and yes, creating Female Thor and making Sam Wilson take up the shield of Captain America (And with it the role of “Guy in the Marvel Universe who is always right). 

Wonder Woman has been around for seventy years at this point, but that didn’t stop the creation of a comic book culture that is decidedly focused on men, and hostile to women.

What’s more, Marvel is MAKING NOISE about what they are doing. Yes, it’s to drum up publicity and pat themselves on the back for being progressive, but it’s ALSO serving to send a clear message about the future of comic books. Having a parapalegic transwoman pacific islander superhero is great, but it’s not going to change very much if you don’t tell anybody about her. It’s not going to tell  the dudebros who feel they need to protect the sanctity of the hobby by quizzing any girl in a green lantern shirt that they don’t get to put a No Girls Allowed sign outside the clubhouse, and it’s not going to make women and people of color feel more welcome in comic book stores. It’s going to be a curiosity on the shelves that only the Dudebros patrol, and that will run for six issues and get canceled. 

So Marvel is putting on a show, they’re plastering the press with pictures of Kamala Khan and Sam Wilson and whoever the new Thor is. 

DC meanwhile, is whitewashing previously mixed race characters, canceling series involving PoCs, and turning Amanda Waller into another male-gaze baiting supermodel.

Thinking about it, Amanda Waller is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. Marvel, to the best of my knowledge, has never had a character like Amanda Waller. A woman of color, clearly not designed to appeal to the male gaze, who was respected and treated as a force to be reckoned with. 

Props to DC for making Amanda Waller in the past, shame on them for what they’re doing with her now.

We love Marvel because of what Marvel is doing NOW, introducing diversity into comics, and then making a lot of noise about it in order to make non white-cis-male readers feel more welcome. We mock DC because we are looking at their current actions. 

This isn’t a question of the company’s past, it’s a question of what the companies are doing right now, and right now DC is regressing to the white-male-dudebro demographic, while Marvel is loudly and publicly trying to change things.

Why is it that evil villains always find poison to inject into their victims like just literally fill the syringe with air and just stick the needle between their toes or something. It’ll mimic a heart attack and the victim will die pretty quick and NO ONE WILL ASK MANY QUESTIONS BECAUSE IT’LL LOOK LIKE A HEART ATTACK

first of all how do you know this information i feel like the government doesnt want you to know that

Because it’s not as easy as that. A small air bubble can block capillaries and cause pain, maybe nerve damage, but probably not kill the target; a big bubble can cause a blockage of something vital, but you have to make sure you hit an actual blood vessel. If you don’t get a vein/artery on the first hit, all you’ve done is stick air into the patient’s muscle tissue, which is gonna hurt and do damage but not kill them. You’re also gonna need to put … probably around forty mL of air in if you really want a kill, and that’s equivalent to about eight teaspoons’ volume- and there have been people, old, sick, weak people, who’ve survived larger air injections than that.

Seriously, if you don’t get a vein the first time you’re in for a very badly botched murder. Just use poison. An intramuscular injection of the right thing will do the job much more reliably, and an IV one even faster.
