I do have a ‘do not major in creative writing’ essay in me somewhere, and one day it’ll probably come pouring out.

For now, let me just say that my major complaint about creative writing as a major is that it will not teach you certain very basic, very useful things, such as…

I help a city plan for disasters professionally after majoring in English Lit.  It has come in far more useful than many would expect.

rocket is enthusiastically recounting the story of that time he “singlehandedly” busted peter, gamora, and draxx out of a “high-security prison” when he gets to the part about how peter actually believed he needed that guy’s prosthetic leg, when really, he just wanted to see him hopping around without it -

“excuse me?” clint pulls out one of his hearing aids and shakes it. “is my hearing aid malfunctioning, or did i really just hear actual fart noises coming out of your mouth?”

steve is on his feet and furious; to contrast him, bucky has one foot propped up on his other knee, the picture of casual except that his metal hand is clenching and unclenching into a fist, whirring audibly. natasha pops her bubblegum threateningly.

“i am groot,” groot says, nudging rocket, and rocket mutters, “shut up.”

“i’m no expert, but i’m pretty sure he means that making fun of disabled people isn’t fucking funny,” remarks bucky serenely.

rocket mumbles something inaudible.

“i’m sorry, what was that?” clint asks, rolling his hearing aid between his fingers. “you’re gonna have to say it louder.”

rocket rolls his eyes and then blurts out, “i’m sorry, okay!”

“great,” clint says. “now keep telling me how you’re never gonna do that again, and also how the hell you got out of a high security prison using only a battery and a guard’s id. i need to know.”

Exactly why this joke made me very uncomfortable during the movie.

When Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook, she had no idea how popular they would become. 

Thousands of shares throughout the world later, the appeal of Rosetti’s work is clear. Much like the street art phenomenon Stop Telling Women To Smile, Rossetti’s empowering images are the kind you want to post on every street corner, as both a reminder and affirmation of women’s bodily autonomy. 

"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."

Rossetti’s illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. Some characters are based on the experiences of friends or her own life, while others draw inspiration from the stories many women have shared across the Internet. 

"I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. "I lived some of them myself."

Despite quickly garnering thousands of enthusiastic comments and shares on Facebook, the project started as something personal — so personal, in fact, that Rossetti is still figuring out what to call it. For now, the images reside in albums simply titled “WOMEN in english!" or "Mujeres en español!" which is fitting: Rossetti’s illustrations encompass a vast set of experiences that together create a powerful picture of both women’s identity and oppression.

One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. Rossetti originally wrote the text of the illustrations in Portuguese, and then worked with an Australian woman to translate them to English. A group of Israeli feminists also took it upon themselves to create versions of the illustrations in Hebrew. Now, more people have reached out to Rossetti through Facebook and offered to translate her work into even more languages. Next on the docket? Spanish, Russian, German and Lithuanian.

It’s an inspiring show of global solidarity, but the message of Rossetti’s art is clear in any language. Above all, her images celebrate being true to oneself, respecting others and questioning what society tells us is acceptable or beautiful.

"I can’t change the world by myself," Rossetti said. "But I’d love to know that my work made people review their privileges and be more open to understanding and respecting one another."

This is literally what Terry Pratchett wears to conventions. 

What a good thing is Terry Pratchett.

As a rule I have to reblog Terry Pratchett, even if I’ve already done so before.

Best.

Boxer crabs are badass because they pick up handfuls clawfuls of stinging sea anemones and use them as weapons.

I thought that was a cheerleader crab

Waitaminutewaitaminute- what you’re telling me is that when that crab gets threatened, it picks up another organism laying nearby/minding it’s own business and then proceeds to use said innocent bystander to beat up whatever was threatening it?
someone please find a picture of this crab and put “I’ll beat a motherfucker with another mother fucker” on it in captions. Do it please I am not good with edits.



I am now singing “I will beat a motherfucker with another motherfucker” to the tune of Llama Llama Duck.

I will beat a motherfucker
with another motherfucker
'til the motherfucker fucking fucked the motherfuck.
Motherfucker, Motherfucker,
Do not fuck with motherfuckers,
Who have other motherfuckers, with to fuck you back.
I once saw a spider
He was not a dove.
using other creatures like some fucking pompom gloves.
Beating motherfuckers,
He looked very pleased.
And with spider friends like that
Who needs anemones?
Did you see that motherfucker punch a fucker with a fucker?
I will beat a motherfucker
with a motherfuck.
 
Once a motherfucker fucked with
twice the motherfucker and he
found the motherfucker was a motherfucking… duck.

i fucking know and they will HATE bobbi and be the fucking worst about her and i just want to protect her from them already

Well it’s fine because Clint’s plot line in Aou literally nixes that possibility of him and BOBBI being together. So don’t worry about it and stop being fucking rude

You can ship something and not hate women while doing it???? I mean Bobbi was canonically married to Clint and I literally haven’t seen an ounce of hate for her from the C/C fans?
I don’t think you guys know shit about the c/c fandom because I never see any fucking hate from anyone in the tags. We sit peacefully in the corner with our OTP that we’re all aware will never be canon so calm the fuck down.

Seriously. I am so excited for Bobbi in AoS, and if they NEVER MENTION her connection to Clint, I will be just as excited, and if they do, OMG, WHAT WILL WE DO? WE CAN’T POSSIBLY SHIP THEM IF CLINT HAS A CANON (EX) LOVE INTEREST?!

*rolls eyes*

Stop being an asshole.

Seriously. All Clint/Coulson shippers want is to see the characters on screen. We are just fine with seeing other love interests for both in canon. I’m super excited about Bobbi because I want to see all of the awesome women on screen!
