idk can these ppl go a single day without supporting an oppressive system to spare their pride?
Things were so much simpler before women started stealing all of my favorite things from me. I don’t care what anyone says. Women aren’t and will never be true fans of Doctor Who, Star Trek or any of that. You jumped in because you wanted attention. You became “fans” because suddenly liking sci-fi shows and fantasy became popular. You only want guys to drool over you because you’re girls who “like” geeky stuff. Kindly go jump in a lake and die.
A woman organized the letter-writing campaign to NBC to save Star Trek when it was on the verge of being cancelled after the first season, and thus enabled the show to continue on for three seasons allowing it to go into syndication and gain the following it did in reruns.
A woman organized the first ever Star Trek convention, and convinced NASA to donate a truckload full of stuff for said convention thus starting the tradition of Star Trek conventions featuring space for modern science.
A woman greenlit Star Trek while acting at the head of a major studio, and consistently fought pressure to cancel the show. This same woman was the person who greenlit Mission Impossible and was the first woman to head a major studio.
A woman wrote many of the most famous TOS episodes, and went on to write on to write episodes of The Animated Series, The Next Generation, and Deep Space Nine.
Learn your history.
You think women stole your favorite things? If it weren’t for women, those things wouldn’t even exist, but you probably don’t even know the names of the women who made that possible.
So much for “infinite diversity in infinite combinations”…
Who is the fake now?
i’m just laughing so hard right now bc it’s hitting me that there are geek guys who think that women would actually pretend to like this stuff to cater to guys. like it never really occurred to me the depths of how absolutely fucking stupid that idea is. ”we appear to have common interests but you still don’t like me so that must mean we don’t actually have common interests and you are not a real fan”. oh my god i just can’t right now. i want to feel offended by the fact that there is an idiot out there trying to tell me what i can and cannot like but i’m just too busy laughing.
Also, a lot of the current fandom terminology we take for granted originated in the Star Trek fandom, specifically Star Trek fanfic. And who were the major driving force behind Star Trek fanfic? Women.
Earliest spec fic texts in the English-speaking Western world were written by Thomas More (Utopia), Lady Margaret Cavendish (the Blazing World), and Mary Shelley (Frankenstein). Note that there are two women among those names.
I am so sick of these Fake Geek Guys who don’t even understand the history of the fandom they claim to want to protect.
And let’s not forget Doctor Who. A woman named Verity Lambert was a founding producer of the show at the BBC and she was key to it’s early success according to everyone who worked on or around it. We wouldn’t have Doctor Who if not for Verity.
Ughh, fake geek guys!
Also, if it wasn’t for Baroness Orczy, you geek boys wouldn’t have Batman, because hey, Scarlet Pimpernel was the model on which Bruce Wayne was based. How about that? Another woman who happened to trigger the creation of an icon of geek culture. What are the chances of that, eh?
once when i was little, i claimed it was a teacher’s work day so i wouldn’t have to go to school and mom’s not an idiot so of course it didn’t work, but when we got to the school, we found it was a teacher’s work day and that made me think i had super powers so i started trying to kill classmates with my mind to confirm the theory
You thought you had super powers so you immediately attempted to murder everyone

It has been three days. The servants have rebelled and refuse me refuge in my castle. They point and laugh and take pictures while I have been reduced to grovelling to be let in. I fear this may be my last entry.
There. Fixed it.

This person deserves the internet award.
This person deserves a fandom award. *slow claps*
”This is shit” I say as I click ‘next chapter’ just to make sure it’s still shit.
I read the whole thing.
It was shit.
A photo on Facebook has sparked my opinionated comment. I’m interested to know how others feel about public #breastfeeding
I find that a lot of people who object to public breastfeeding don’t understand how breast supply works. Breasts are not a factory that just magically keeps making milk. Breastmilk is made when nipples are stimulated by sucking. No stimulation, no milk.
Sure, it’s no problem to feed the baby a bottle in public. But it’s a problem to keep having enough milk if the mommy’s breasts are not used exactly when baby feeds.
Not stimulating breasts means no milk. So, to maintain ideal milk supply, if the mommy has to go out in public, her options are to breastfeed baby in public or to pump while bottle feeding her baby. In public.
I would definitely prefer to breastfeed in public, because then all I have to bring is my baby and his diapers. To maintain my milk supply without breastfeeding in public would mean that I’d have to bring not only my baby and his diapers, but bottles, cooler bag, pump, power source for the pump, and some sort of cover (because obviously, you’re not gonna want to see me pumping in public, are you?)
And that’s assuming that I’m not one of the unlucky mummies whose breasts just do not work with a pump, no matter how hard she tries.
I’d need two strollers! One for my baby and one for my pump (and paraphernalia). I’d rather save the money on all this equipment for my children’s education than your comfort.
Boyfriends don’t die if you don’t make out with him. Breast milk supply will die when you don’t remove your breast milk from your breasts.
Comparing breast feeding in public to making out with your boyfriend in public really doesn’t do much to support your statement that you don’t think breast feeding is disgusting or sexual.
I breastfed, and I breastfed in public. You actually couldn’t tell that I was breastfeeding unless 1-I wore a nursing cover which drew obvious attention or 2-you walked over to me, and had to sit an actually look at what the baby was doing, by then you are in my personal space. I show more cleavage when I wear tank tops than I do breastfeeding.
Also, breast are not some magical pumping machines. Some one, especially myself, were not successful at pumping. It would take me somewhere between 3-5 times pumping for an hour to get ONE 4 OZ BOTTLE! that is not enough to feed my child when I am out and about. So a new mother already has enough shit on her plate, calm the fuck down.
Also, breastfeeding IS NOT, I repeat IS NOT a sexual experience. Do not compare it to PDA’s or any sort of sexual act. Personal, If I see two people kissing in public, I don’t bitch. But again, DO NOT COMPARE BREASTFEEDING TO SEXUAL ACTS>
I don’t have supply issues and depending on the time of day and how long it’s been since I last fed my daughter, I can actually pump a good six to eight ounces in maybe half an hour. But even I hate pumping. It’s time consuming. It’s annoying. You can’t really multi-task but it’s not like you can relax either. Plus even when you pump, you can’t just shove that bottle into your kid’s mouth. It still would have to be warmed up - which is also annoying and time consuming. Plus milk spoils so you can’t just carry a bottle of milk indefinitely.
I breastfeed in public. I’ve fed my daughter in movie theatres. In restaurants. I just toss a thin blanket over my shoulder to avoid people hassling me, even though it would be easier to just keep my shirt pulled close to her face. I’ve yet to have anyone give me any sass about it and if I do… meh. I also show more boob when I’m wearing low cut shirts than I do when I’m nursing anywhere outside of my home.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from reading fanfiction, it’s that clear communication will save you at least three chapters of angst.
Look, I’m glad ‘12 Years [A Slave]’ got made and it’s wonderful that people are seeing it and there is another view of what happened in America. But I’m not real sure why Steve McQueen wanted to tackle that particular sort of thing.
[‘Fruitvale Station’] explains things like the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the problems with stop and search, and is just more poignant. America is much more willing to acknowledge what happened in the past: ‘We freed the slaves! It’s all good!’ But to say: ‘We are still unnecessarily killing black men’ – let’s have a conversation about that.

I think in light of 12 Years a Slave winning the Oscar for Best Picture, this needs to be remembered. Because it is a very important point in terms of the palatability of 12 Years a Slave and why Fruitvale Station didn’t even get nominated when it has such acclaim outside of the Oscar world.
THANK YOU SAM JACKSON
This is the first time I’ve actually finished a Thor pic.
… my hundreds of messy sketches don’t count ^^; Very pleased with this one, prints incoming! I’m uploading it to my Society6 store right now.
I pity the John Winchester who lost Mary
I violently despise the John Winchester that emotionally abused his children and destroyed their childhood
