Over 50% of the American population believes it should be illegal for women to keep their own name on marriage
ILLEGAL. Not just that you “should” change your name. But that it should be ILLEGAL for you not to do so.
“Innocent tradition” my ass. No social pressure my ass.
what the fuck
when i am sad i remind myself that
- when derek hale fake flirts, he uses his good looks
- when derek hale flirts genuinely, he uses his booksmarts
and i feel a little bit better
i think it’s more than this, though? he uses his talents in general. when he’s baiting paige, he dances around her with a basketball. he’s trying to impress her. he’s trying. that’s the difference between the way he reacted to paige and jennifer, and the deputy in season two. it doesn’t take any effort to flash a smile for distraction. he doesn’t actually want the woman to like him. he doesn’t have any feelings to hurt if she rejects him. when derek hale flirts, he puts himself out there. with jennifer, he offers up information that works in the moment: she’s an english teacher, he’s showing his smarts. with paige, its physical for physical: paige is good at playing an instrument and in return derek shows he’s good at basketball. he’s using his talents to show he’s worthy, he’s good enough. i think that’s much more telling than a simple: he uses his booksmarts. because he doesn’t, not in every situation. he’s good at adapting, manipulating a situation. to be honest, it’s incredibly impressive.
but are you surprised? are you really surprised that adaptability is the strongest trait of a character’s whose arc is literally exclusively about surviving?
who survives hunters, alphas, fires, water, abominations, revenge, rampages, chases, betrayal
who adapts to being constantly hunted, always hurting, smelling smoke everywhere, never having enough air to breathe, fighting his loved ones, always running, never trusting,
that is the very heart of derek
the biggest contribution of derek’s continued survival is his adaption to unsurvivable, unlivable environments
can you imagine how big an asset his inherent adaptability could be if put in an environment where he could thrive? where he could find success because he constantly adapts to the situation and responds with trying his absolute best?

Honestly, Tvyek is pretty miraculous. It’s permeable to water vapor but not to water, it’s nearly impossible to tear, but can be easily cut. It’s cheap and made entirely without binding chemicals. In addition to being used for wristbands, it’s used to wrap construction sites to keep out water during construction, for tear-resistant envelopes at Fed-Ex, coveralls for mechanics, and my wallet, actually.
Fun tip, though it looks like paper, Tyvek is plastic, and cannot be recycled with paper.
FOR THE LAST TIME I WASN’T FLIRTING WITH LYDIA, OKAY?
OH MY GOD. YOU HAVE SO MANY ISSUES.
ALSO, I AM NOT CLEANING ANY OF THAT SAND OUT OF YOUR SNOUT. YOU ONLY HAVE YOURSELF TO BLAME.
how come women are seen as overreactive to dumb things when men literally need FOR MEN written on soap before they can use it
so, yeah, whoever came up with the character birthdays for the official teen wolf calendar was obviously brimming with bullshit. I’d love to blame jeff davis, because this is exactly the kind of disregard for established canon and basic math that we’ve come to expect…
my school put me in charge of the posters for LGBTQ acceptance and i kind of just
great job, you just alienated every LGBTQ kid in your school who doesn’t give a crap about your shitty fandoms just so you could make a fucking tumblr post
hope you feel proud of yourself for indulging in your fandom rather than actually making posters that everyone rather than a select few people will actually understand!
No. Stop. Stop insulting someone’s efforts to aid the LGBTQ community. Shut your fucking mouth and think for a minute.
When I was in high school, I was the president of our Gay-Straight Alliance. We tried everything to get new members and to gain support for years, but even in my senior year, we were still referred to “the gay club” and received no support from the school whatsoever.
To run a school club, you need support.
Harry Potter happens to be an extremely popular series. Pitch Perfect as well. Every time my club advertised, we would try to include everyone, suggesting that people visit, maybe even once. But by using popular media like that, you not only emphasize your point in a way people will enjoy, you do it in a way people will understand.
In no way is this a form of alienation. Not at all. You’re not saying “If you don’t like this fandom, you can’t join our club.”
FOR THE LOVE OF CHEESE, THEY’RE SAYING “DON’T BE AN ASSHAT BY NOT ACCEPTING PEOPLE WHO ARE DIFFERENT.”
So please, refrain from demonizing someone who was doing all they can to support the LGBTQ community.
#i feel like a lot of people try and turn the hunger games into some big katniss picking between peeta and gale when in reality the entire book is katniss making her choice over and over again. prim. it’s always prim. the only person she KNOWS she loves.
she and dean would get along
you did not just
oh FUCK HUNGER GAMES AU DEAN WOULD VOLUNTEER FOR SAM IN A HEART BEAT ARE YOU KIDDING ME NO FUCKING HESITATION HE WOULD MARCH TO THE STAGE AND STAND WITH HIS JAW CLENCHED AND MURDER IN HIS EYES AND LATER WHEN HE SAYS HIS GOODBYES HE’D HUG SAMMY AND TELL HIM “DON’T WORRY, I’LL BE BACK SOON”
there wouldn’t even be a fake romantic subplot to help him survive he would rip people’s throats out with his bare hands even before he got his hands on a weapon, no mercy, with that same furious set to his jaw as he had on reaping day because no one is gonna keep him from getting home to Sammy.
The Hunter Games
So it seems like season 3B of Teen Wolf is the one where everyone (finally) loses their shit, all hallucinating and having nightmares and shit, and then they skype Derek, who’s living on a beach somewhere, with absolutely nothing going on, and they’re like, “DEREK DEREK HELP US, DUDE, SHIT IS HORRIBLE” and he’s just like,
And then he flips them off, hangs up, and rides into the sea on the back of a giggling dolphin, the end.

Inspired by the rich gold and black of Dolce and Gabbana’s A/W 2012 collection, I saw this fabric and knew it was meant to be. Just finished over Thanksgiving weekend, it’s been a great relief since I haven’t sewn anything this ambitious in a long time.
