superheroes being domestic (◕‿◕✿)
superheroes having domestic arguments while fighting off super villains (◕‿◕✿)
If you’re not watching Sirens on Thursday nights at 10pm on USA, then you’re missing out. Not only is it one of the funniest shows out there right now — being that it’s co-created and executive produced by Denis Leary — but it’s also highly inclusive.
It centers on a team of Chicago EMTs, and focuses on the odd partnership of three men, Brian, who is the new guy, Johnny, a guy with a slow developing emotional range, and Hank, an African-American homosexual who defies all stereotypes the rest of popular media inflicts upon gay men. Their team is fleshed out in Cash, Voodoo, and Stats. And last night’s episode showed that Voodoo is asexual.
It took Brian from confusion and denail, to attempts to understand, and eventually wrapped it all around in a bow of acceptance. Brian went from the ideology that asexuals “just haven’t had proper sex,” to wanting to understand what asexual means — and failing — and finally all the way to realizing that sex isn’t what defines relationships, and that just being around Voodoo is enough for him.
Do yourselves a favor, and catch up on the episodes, and start tuning in Thursdays at 10.
this looks promising!!
THERE’S AN ASEXUAL CHARACTER ON A TV SHOW RIGHT NOW SPREAD THIS SHIT LIKE WILDFIRE
HOLY SHIT I HAVE TO WATCH THIS
He punched it in the butt!
Ladies and gentlemen: Finland.
Always read the books. This is why they are so much better than the films.
He was meant to have a human death
to show he was just human
a twisted human
he was supposed to die like a mortal
not turn into fucking butterflies
i will reblog this until the end of time
But there’s also something else. The first time he ”died”, when he unsuccessfully tried to kill Harry, there was no dead body to prove that he was gone. So people lived on, most of them fearing that, since there was no tangible proof, he would return. To quote Hagrid, ”Some say he died. Codswallop, in my opinion.” and ”Most of us reckon he’s still out there”. Voldemort’s death in the book provided everyone with proof that the most feared villain of all times was now gone, this time forever. The movie, however, took this concept and distorted it, and therefore (in my opinion) ruined this ultimate moment.
a cruelly malicious person who is involved in or devoted to wickedness or crime; scoundrel.
a person who is deceived or cheated, as by his or her own emotions or ignorance, by the dishonesty of others, or by some impersonal agency
Experts have repeatedly debunked the myth that transgender non-discrimination laws give sexual predators access to women’s restrooms, but that hasn’t stopped conservative media outlets from promoting fake news stories to fear monger about trans-inclusive bathrooms.
For as long as the transgender community has fought for protection from discrimination in public spaces, conservatives have peddled the myth that sexual predators will exploit non-discrimination laws to sneak into women’s restrooms.
That fear has been an extremely effective tool for scaring people into voting against even basic protections for transgender people, which is why conservatives routinely use the phrase “bathroom bill" to describe laws prohibiting discrimination in public accommodations. When conservative media outlets attack non-discrimination laws for transgender people, they almost exclusively focus on bathroom and locker room facilities.But that fear is baseless - completely unsupported by years of evidence from states that already have non-discrimination laws on the books. In a newMedia Matters report, experts from twelve states - including law enforcement officials, state human rights workers, and sexual assault victims advocates - debunk the myth that non-discrimination laws have any relation to incidents of sexual assault or harassment in public restrooms
these rightwing shitheads suddenly pretending like they give a single shit about rape
I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.
Then I spend time with teenagers.
And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.
I have to reboot this today!
