I reblog this whenever it pops up on my dash.

So many directions she could have gone with this joke…out of infinite possibilities…she picked the best possible direction.

Best video in the world

I keep hearing people on the teevee rant about “forced diversity” and “PC fascism” and it makes me wonder how these alternate-universe broadcasts are reaching me here in this world where John Constantine has to be straight and pharaohs are being played by squinty Australian white guys.

"You can’t just change the race of cultural icons like Captain America! It’s an important part of their identity and message!"

Jesus: Ah yes.

Jesus: Can’t imagine who would do that.

Midsummer, purple shorts, gratuitous eyeballs. I want more two-tone shoes, there’s a wonderful dweebiness to them.

queer authors: make all your characters queer. every single one of them. leave no room for alternate cishet interpretations. make straight people uncomfortable. let them cry about how unrealistic it is that no one is cishet. bottle their tears and pour them over your morning pancakes. savor the taste of their discomfort.

I have literally had a conversation with a group of authors where everyone agreed while it was completely reasonable to write books without any female characters at all, it was totally unrealistic and annoying to make everyone queer. One or two cisgender gay men = cool, everyone in the universe being non-cishet = just weird.
