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.

Mainstream media tends to hyper-sexualize gay relationships. Hence, many OUAT fans argue that you can’t have a gay couple on a family show about fairy-tales (often in very misspelled social media posts). But um, nope, that’s just not true. When viewers say they want to see Swan Queen, it’s not a request for the show to become sexually explicit, to be Once Upon a Time in My Pants, it’s asking the show and the show’s audience to recognize that all those idealized elements of true love—authentic connection, sacrifice, and loyalty—also happen in LGBT relationships. LGBT romances deserve an idealized, flowers and hearts, aspirational depiction that parents and kids can watch together and sigh and say “Awww!” the way they do currently with hetero ones. I’m no folklore professor, I don’t own an amulet or Tevas, but even I know fairy-tales are one of the earliest ways we teach kids basic life lessons: what is good, what is bad, don’t talk to strangers, someday you’re going to find someone who will make all the terrible stuff worth it. If we can’t talk about gay relationships in fairy-tale terms, then we’re teaching kids who grow up to be gay that there isn’t a happy ending for them. Like, what other message does it send when Mulan walked away, sobbing, before she could even tell Aurora how she felt? “Believing in even the possibility of a happy ending is a powerful thing” is the show’s own thesis statement. Why not let gay kids, gay teens, and gay parents aspire to a happy ending too?
Dance music needs riot grrrls. Dance music needs Patti Smith. It needs DJ Sprinkles. Dance music needs some discomfort with its euphoria. Dance music needs salt in its wounds. Dance music needs women over the age of 40. Dance needs breastfeeding DJs trying to get their kids to sleep before they have to play. Dance needs cranky queers and teenagers who are really tired of this shit. Dance music needs writers and critics and academics and historians. Dance music needs poor people and people who don’t have the right shoes to get into the club. Dance music needs shirts without collars. Dance music needs people who struggled all week. Dance music needs people that had to come before midnight because they couldn’t afford full admission. Dance music does not need more of the status quo.

HG’s face when she meets Myka for the first time. 
"I felt like my character was supposed to have chemistry with [Eddie]…and I was like, "that would never happen…” then Joanne Kelly walked onto set and I was just like, “hell yes.”“ — Jaime Murray

#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

LIES.
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.



#gonna need obamacare to afford treatment for that burn jackass

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.
