if you watch game of thrones, a show full of murderers, rapists, people who flay others alive, stab pregnant women in the stomach, murderer people at weddings, kill family members, zombies, a guy who bashes babies skulls on walls and rapes their mother etc etc
What a great message. I wish all characters were this nice. Does anyone know what this is from?
this is Joff Baratheon, from Game of Trones. He’s actually one of the only truly likeable characters in the series - he gets onto the throne way too young but makes a really good go of being a fair and kind ruler. He has a relationship with a girl earlier that’s not this one but due to circumstances that are spoilers, they have to split up and he deal with it in a really mature inspiring way that you don’t get to see much in TV shows these days. Here he is at his wedding to this new girl, Maegery, and it’s one of the most beautiful episodes of the show so far, actually.

Actually, ‘fall’ has its origins as an Anglo-Saxon word, and was popularized for use to denote the season around the 16th century from the poetic term ‘the fall of leaf.’ In the language that would develop after 1066, words that were coded as being common or lowly generally had Anglo-Saxon roots while the ‘educated’ words of the elite had French and Latin roots. This is why, even in modern English, we use ‘cow,’ which has an Anglo-Saxon origin, for the animal out in the field and ‘beef,’ which has a French origin, for the food to be consumed. The poor handle the animal while the rich eat the meat, and that is reflected in the language. The language of the conquerors was elevated while the language of the conquered was made base and common. If ‘autumn’ sounds smarter than ‘fall,’ that is only the linguistic snobbery of history talking.
like there are literally millions of people who suffer from mental illness but can’t access decent care, so every time i see someone go on a tangent about self-diagnosers i want to ask them what they think those people should do instead.
i am dead fucking serious. tell me. what do you recommend they do? because it kinda sounds like you don’t give a fuck, and that makes you an ableist, classist piece of shit.

Anonymous asked: fucking fake geek girl poser bitch. bet you dont read comics. stupid fucking baleTARD
Allow me to ignore you for a second and address my fellow fakers.
Ladies, I submit to you this new and crazy notion:
Boys don’t like comics.
Really. I know they say they do, and we just accept it as fact, but that’s where we’re going wrong. When quizzed, boys genuinely have no idea. They’re just in it for the tights and cape. They like the attention. And that’s fine if you’re packing a big utility belt; I’d like to see that kind of man action at my cons. But for those of you with Ant Man in their trousers… it’s time to hang up the spandex.
It’s actually kind of sad that boys feel the need to lie like this. I mean, they should spend less time trying to impress us, and more time fixing cars, or whatever it is they like to do. Leave the comics to the real fans. I bet they don’t even know Barbara Gordon’s birthday. Try asking a Geek Boy when Hal Jordan made his first appearance. The blank look of his face would be sweet if he wasn’t so pathetic.
Look, I’m not an misandrist! I have plenty of guy friends, and I even have a brother! It’s just that girls are naturally more intelligent. We understand the complex story lines of a comic series easier than boys do. It’s science! Boys are good at other things. But boys who say they like comic books… they just want all the girls to look at them. I say we don’t give them the satisfaction.
And if you don’t agree with anything I’ve just written…
Because it’s a pathetic argument. And it’s just as pathetic when it’s aimed at girls.
I shouldn’t have to flash my nerd credentials whenever some self-appointed gatekeeper of the Elysium Fields of geekdom decides that there is no way I could like something as macho as comics.
Newsflash! There is no reason to attach a gender to the act of reading. I enjoy comics as much as I enjoy reading fantasy and sci-fi. There is no reason for you to come on to my blog and be so rude.
And as a side-note, I’m assuming Baletard is your uber-offensive way of saying my love of Batman stems from the Nolan films. Allow me to correct this idea by saying that I don’t think any modern adaptation in live-action fully appreciates how complex Batman is, and the Nolan versions are the worst. I prefer my Caped Crusader to be animated.
I could list my comics, my graphic novels, my collectibles or anything else it takes to get my nerd passport approved. But what is it about the genre that makes you hate women so much? You seem to misunderstand something fundamental about women:
We are not here for your amusement. We are not here to impress you. Sometimes we are here to buy Nightwing and be our own people without being judged by awful elitists like yourself
Thank you for visiting my blog. Kindly leave your hate at the door next time.
Why doesn’t this have more notes?!
Let’s give it more notes. It should have them.
Infiltration is an interesting business. In any organisation of size it’s not hard for a group of employees with an agenda to change how things progress - and it can be subtle as all hell. They don’t have to have secret meetings, or hastily hidden note books…

friendly reminder not to support lindt this easter season, or apparently ever again, because they support autism speaks.
can someone please explain why autism speaks is so bad?
because they’re adamant that autism is a disease that can be “cured”. They don’t have a single autistic person on their board. Autism Speaks produces advertisements, small films, ect. about what a burden autistic people are to a society. They only spend about 4% of their money on “family services.” They create a stereotype that makes it hard for actual autistic people, like myself, be heard and recognized as actually autistic. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder before they realized that I actually showed signs of Asperger’s. They don’t actually help us.
That’s the problem with Autism Speaks.
(tw for violence, ableism, abuse, murder, and death)
It goes deeper than not having any autistic board members. Many of the allistics running the organization promote the horrific notion that you’re better off dead than autistic, and their influence and “activism” only supports the ideology resulting in the continued murder of autistic children and adults by their parents and caregivers.
Former Autism Speaks board member Harry Slatkin, whose wife, Laura, continues to serve on the Board of Directors, stated in an interview with Town and Country while still a board member that sometimes he hoped their autistic son David would drown in the backyard pond rather than “suffer like this all his life.” Evidencing a pattern of similarly violent rhetoric, Autism Speaks is also responsible for the 2006 PSA “Autism Every Day" in which their then Vice President states on camera that she considered putting her autistic daughter in the car and driving off a bridge, and that the only reason she refrained from doing so was because her other, non-autistic daughter would have been waiting for her at home—her autistic daughter was in the room as she made these statements. Furthermore, the producer of this PSA explicitly admitted that the film was intentionally staged to portray negative images of autistic people and their families.
Only four days following the release of “Autism Every Day,” pathologist Karen McCarron smothered her autistic daughter with a garbage bag. McCarron stated that she murdered Katie because her “autism had not been improving,” had thought about killing Katie, that made an earlier brief attempt at suffocation, wanted to cure Katie, thought killing Katie would make her “complete” in heaven, and wanted to live without autism and thus had to kill Katie. Investigators found that McCarron was obsessed with different treatments for Katie. (See People v. FRANK-McCARRON, 934 NE 2d 76 - Ill: Appellate Court, 3rd Dist. 2010.) Though it is not presently possible to draw a direct connection between Autism Speaks’ PSA and Katie’s murder, this crime and dozens like it only underscore how the kind of rhetoric that Autism Speaks favors only serves to recklessly endanger the lives of autistic people.
Autism Speaks also publicly supports the Judge Rotenberg Center, a group home for autistic and neurodivergent students that uses “treatments” like food and sleep deprivation and electric shock to try and train the residents into acting neurotypical. The center has changed states three times in an attempt to bypass regulation against abusive treatment, and their practices have resulted in the deaths of more than one student.
It’s not just an issue of Autism Speaks making it harder for us to get proper diagnoses and treatment. Autism Speaks is actively killing us.
I was eyeing up their strawberries and cream lindor the other day but this is more important than delicious chocolate.
you all need to know this. You really do. Please do not support Lindt or anything that supports autism speaks. Please.
Well shit. I used to really like Lindor…
At least now though I can get better chocolate from Aldi.
Absolutely re-blogging this, because more people need to know that what Autism Speaks has done (and still is doing) is not cool. I’ve known this for years, having autism myself, but it still needs to be said, and repeated, until everyone gets it.
Any organization who consistently refers to autistics as “taken”, “stolen” or otherwise “not whole”, or calls their movie “Sounding the Alarm”, which is basically connecting autism to a reference to the goddamn Rapture in the Book of Revelation (where, once again, a parent expresses their want to kill their adult child with autism), should not be supported. They are dangerous, they support a dangerous ideal towards people with autism, and their words can easily be taken as a justification to harm those with disabilities.
And the worst part is, because they are the biggest autism organization, a lot of companies fall for their “altruistic” bullshit. They are not altruistic. The bulk of their money does not go to helping actual autistic people or for other practical purposes - it goes to “research” for a “cure” and a “cause”. And they prey on the emotions of family members of people with autism, and the pursestrings of those companies those families buy from, to accomplish this.
Spread the word and reblog. Boycott these companies and tell them with your money how you feel about their sponsorship of Autism Speaks.
Autism Speaks makes me feel sick, do not support them. If “Autism Speaks” then why don’t they give us a voice?
