So, on the one hand, Avengers Alliance now has a playable Rocket Raccoon. On the other hand, there’s a Spec Op mission to Wakanda. Do we want to place bets on how racist it’s gonna get?
In fact, if Steve goes back to his old neighbourhood in Brooklyn, one of the things he might miss the most is the loss of the working class gay community. The hipstery character of the area today is not just non-working-class, but not nearly as queer and fabulous as it would’ve been in Steve’s day.
should i be slightly worried that my default reaction to cute things atm is “oh no”
oh no its cute
no no no
nooooooooooooo the cute
Hi please watch this poor mailman get attacked by a cat it’s v. important
TAKE IT WITH YOU.
I THINK MY FAVORITE PART ABOUT THIS IS HOW CHEERFUL THE MAILMAN IS. HE AIN’T EVEN MAD.
I wouldn’t be either because this is hysterical.
Just bull things.
Steff has gone away and won’t be back until some time tomorrow night and thus it is I am currently staring at a screen asking me to swear allegiance to a dragon god. I am uncertain how this came to be.
Ha ha one of the dragon gods is ‘nature’ and it is a sort of dragon tree well that was quick
I would like you to know that I predicted this turn of events as soon as I saw that thing :P
Inspired by this post.

One time, the Queen of England decided to knight a loyal member of her country who happened to be Jewish.
This man knew that knights were supposed to say something in Latin as the Queen knighted them, but didn’t remember the line, so he quickly said “ma nishtana halaila hazeh micol haleilot”
This, of course, confused the Queen, who turned to her advisor and asked “Why is this knight different from all other knights?”
Butler, 1991 (via feministtwins)
I think that’s a pretty damn invalidating quote in relation to trans people.
I’m not sure if this is invalidating to trans people within the scope of her argument, though. Now, Butler is hella over my head and so I can only frame it though my own experience. This isn’t a prescriptive reading here, it’s me applying my reading to my experience. To me, it seems like Butler’s talking about the perpetuation of social categories via embodiment and performance. I follow her argument and I think that it offers me a new entry-point into my relationship with my gender and transition. While my trans status is valid and important and my medical transition increased my quality of life by leaps and bounds, complicating the idea of how social categories come to be and come to hold weight is really essential for me to live out my masculinity in as non-damaging a way as possible
my understanding (based on reading for a thesis i wrote like two years ago, and which was over my head a lot of the time also, so bear with me if I fuck something up) is it kind of works in the sense that the details of gender performance and the state of identifying as/with a gender are not necessarily related? Like, you’re a dude, and you might want to have facial hair because you like the way it looks, or you might want to have facial hair because it helps other people acknowledge you as a man, like a signalling device, or both, but neither of those things make wants-facial-hair an inherent quality of identifies-as-a-man even if it genuinely is a part of it for you. we identify with groups of people, not with some kind of fixed independent notion of gender, so, paradoxically, what people consider to be part of gender is itself an important part of gender, and yet there’s nothing permanent or universal about what people consider to be part of gender. I think forcing those things to visibly coexist despite that combination making a lot of people uncomfortable is part of Butler’s understanding of queerness (and something she rly likes about queerness). but it doesn’t work if the performative nature of gender makes gender irrelevant or obsolete or whatever, as some Butler fans have and do try to go for (and it would have been tempting for me to think that way because a lot of aspects of gender are irrelevant or otherwise do-not-want for me personally, but I, too, really enjoy the Play aspect, and also my narcissism really doesn’t go quite that far). it’s like you say - complicating, not invalidating.
A musical! Of my very own! Fantastic!
I’m pretty sure that in our more inebriated moments, we (me, Steff & Richard) came up with an idea so marvellous and so untoppable, it would be a shame to try and out do it, But as I can’t actually remember what the idea is now (further inebriation responsible) then I am happy to pitch my idea. It may have been Titanic, but that might have been another conversation. Either way, it’s a good idea. It would be called heart of the ocean,
I think it would have to be on roller skates (that has worked well in the past) and involve lots of hoop dancing with those rainbow LED hoops. It will be the greatest love story ever told. Lots and lots of love. And devastating sadness so the audience will weep like fools.
I would love to see a tudor based musical but I don’t see how this will marry up with the hoops and rollerskates. Actually, I don’t see how Titanic would either. Rollerskates will actually speed up the deaths on board the ship. And anyway, who would have had rollerskates on while on a cruise? Crazy!
I also think Labyrinth should be made into a musical.
you know what ought to be a musical with rollerskates? that one concept album the Indelicates did about David Koresh. I’m thinking particularly about the sardonic ATF song. yes. yes, it needs uniformed men performing chorus-line high-kicks in rollerskates.

… someone should probably kick me out of this fandom, but today is not the day!
The ship name could be Bucket.
…I’m just saying!
hm. I guess I thought the obvious ridiculosity would cancel that out in some way. but… yes, ok, “tuna roll” is not going to communicate “؟wow u rly thought this meme thru good job؟” to everyone automatically, is it? sorry mate, bad call on my part.
