"There is a reason that most fanfiction authors, specifically girls, start with a Mary Sue. It’s because girls are taught that they are never enough. You can’t be too loud, too quiet, too smart. You can’t ask too many questions or know too many answers. No one is flocking to you for advice. Then something wonderful happens. The girl who was told she’s stupid finds out that she can be a better wizard than Albus Dumbledore. And that is something very important. Terrible at sports? You’re a warrior who does backflips and Legolas thinks you’re THE BEST. No friends? You get a standing ovation from Han Solo and the entire Rebel Alliance when you crash-land safely on Hoth after blowing up the Super Double Death Star. It’s all about you. Everyone in your favorite universe is TOTALLY ALL ABOUT YOU.

I started writing fanfiction the way most girls did, by re-inventing themselves.

Mary Sues exist because children who are told they’re nothing want to be everything."

lately I’ve seen…not a lot but definitely enough posts that talk in fairly definitive terms about fictional characters and butt stuff. it turns out that for some, there is a level of cosmic significance to who tops and who takes the d. which on one hand, whatever, but on the other hand there are a lot of troubling elements to the rhetoric that people use, which I’m not sure people are aware of, which I’m here to talk about. so. get ready for butt stuff, gender essentialism, insidious homophobia and why it’s a no-no to conflate sexual identities and sexual positions.

firstly, let me be quite clear: it is okay to have preferences. it is okay to have preferences when it comes to porn and wish-fulfilment fantasies and fanfic and character dynamics. that’s okay. preferences are okay. where things start to get murky is when we try to justify utterly subjective, utterly arbitrary preferences and present them as somehow more right than others. a more “correct” way of reading a character. “look at him, he’d never top.” “it’s obvious he bottoms, because reasons.” but even preferences on their own don’t exist in a vacuum, and queer relationships in media and fandom exist within a larger societal narrative that piles multiple layers of intersecting homophobia and misogyny onto them.

" I’m so accustomed to being treated with equality, I don’t know how to react when I’m not. “

And here’s an example of how Wonder Woman should be handled: like other superheroes and heroines, she fights the good fight, but she has a specific agenda in mind outside of that — making sure everyone, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, or religious creed, gets a fair shake.  Other characters may not be as mindful of that concept, which can get lost in all the battles and physical side of heroics, and Diana should be reminding them of it, leading by example.

A little less Greek mythology, stabby-stabby with a sword, and snogging Superman, and a lot more of *this*.

January 1978.  Cover by Rich Buckler and Vince Colletta, words by Gerry Conway, and interior art by Jose Delbo and Vince Colletta.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

Be with someone who is proud to have you. With someone who is patient with you and gentle with your heart. Someone who doesnt necessarily understand you, but is trying to find our your quirks and the things that make you tick. Be with someone who isn’t shamed to say your name in front of their friends, or hold your hand at family outings. Be with someone who fights for you. With someone you fears losing you. And make sure you feel the same about them, too.

WHOA WHOA WHOA. excuse me.But the minimum wage is set for teenagers with first jobs/ college students TO GET EXPERIENCE. Because a higher paying job isn’t going to higher you unless ypu have experience. AND YOU GET THAT EXPERIENCE BY WORKING AT MINIMUM PAYING JOBS. and the higher paying jobs are harder jobs which is why they get more money. If you raise the minimum wage, then companies wont have the money to pay more employees so they look for the people with the most experience…So if companies can only higher people with experience and you dont have any because companies DONT HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY YOU?? well then you are never going to get a job. And when the minimum wage goes up, the price of everything goes up.And then we have the minimum wage earners complaining again.So stop saying that the minimum wage needs to be raised because it doesnt.What needs to happen is we need a better economy and thanks to obama, thats not going to happen for a while because obama doesn’t know what hes doing.So if you want to make more money, get experience and a better paying job.

You’re a shitty economist buddy.
Less than 15% of minimum wage worker’s are teenagers (age 14-19), the rest are adults aged 20 and over (85.7%). So lets stop pretending that these jobs are meant for students. The economy is shit and unfortunately, people have to settle for low wages because the alternative often is unemployment.
Higher paying jobs doesn’t equate to ‘harder jobs’. Often, the higher a position is, the less labor you are required to do.
"And when the minimum wage goes up, the price of everything goes up."
Inflation doesn’t necessarily work that way. Obviously, you’re just regurgitating the bullshit theories conservatives spew out while disregarding the statistics and history that proves otherwise. But since you’re using that argument, why not raise the minimum wage with the rise of inflation? Or productivity even?
If we had raised the minimum wage with the rise of productivity since 1968, it would currently be $21.72. In other words, we are creating far more and producing more profit for corporations, while being paid for a third of what we use to.
What do you have to say about that?
And raising the minimum wage to $10.10 will raise 1.7 million families out of poverty and reduce the need for them to use public assistance, saving the federal government $7.6 billion per year. Would you say you’re you against that?
The current federal minimum wage is $7.25. In none of the 50 states is that enough money to pay the average rent for a 2-bedroom apartment. 
The minimum wage used to be able to keep a family of 3 above the poverty line. Now, the minimum wage can’t even keep a single parent working 40 hours a week, for an entire year without a single day off, above the poverty line.
When you raise the minimum wage, you’re putting more money into the pockets of the lower/working class. Their money is directly put back into the economy when the buy food, pay bills and generally spend their money. As oppose to higher paid people who have the luxury of saving their earnings. That means that businesses will generally make more money because the working class has more money to spend.
That’s my argument for raising the minimum wage, I would love to see your attempt to counter it.
