You know, we joke about how you can get us to watch any show because there’s a lesbian, but the fact is that it’s not a joke. It’s not funny at all.
We’re so starved for queer ladies that we’ll put up with some goddamn shit shows just because there’s a single character who represents. It is not a…
#CHICAGO FIRE #LESLIE SHAY #QUEER REPRESENTATION #LESBIAN CHARACTERS #QUEER CHARACTERS #TARA MCLAY
A-fuckin’-men to that. And we are not post-scarcity with queer characters, so don’t give me some bullshit about how queer deaths “further the storyline” and “we can’t expect equality if it always has to be about the queerness”.
Give me equality first, and then we’ll fuckin’ talk. But all things are not equal and it still fucking matters.
marvel: destroying the weak female trope one movie at a time
I love this scene because it tells you so much about Nat in so little time. She’s all bouncy and happy, “Yes I’ve boxed,” and then he makes fun of her for something she’s proud of by insinuating that girls don’t box, and then her face just, “Oh hell no, son,” and she checks to see if anyone is watching and then she checks to see if she cares and then she floors him.
HG’s face when she meets Myka for the first time.

#HG just dragged her eyes down Myka like a rake through three weeks of fall leaves #and picked up ever single piece of her on the way back up #must have been a pretty big effort to get through all that unf #because she looks mighty hungry there at the end - webgeekist
I will never get over what should have been.
I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama
that came from taxes I paid.
Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.
what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.
Seriously, if only MORE of my tax dollars could go to fund Single Payer Health Insurance so even more people could have their medications without going bankrupt or dying.
Anyone who is so goddamn stingy that they think their tax dollars going to KEEP PEOPLE FROM DYING is a bad thing… they need some love in their life, or something.
