NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY
This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.
are you even fucking kidding me, this is so unbelievable that i thought it was going to be a parody at first
Anonymous asked: Since you recently wrote a neat post about queer baiting, I was wondering if you had any thoughts on whether Hannibal/Will (from Hannibal, duh) was a case of queer baiting. I have no idea if you watch the show though, or just like pictures of Michael Pitt.
Unfortunately, I can’t really speak to that. You’re right— I’m just excited about Michael Pitt doing things (I’m such a proud Mama whenever actors I like have new projects).
But if anyone would like to chime in on this, be my guest!
The difference between what shows like Supernatural and Sherlock are doing with queerbaiting and what Hannibal is doing is that SPN and Sherlock make it a joke. They give you these scenes between characters who very well could be queer and make it into something laughable or pathetic.
Bryan Fuller, for all his faults, has in several interviews explained that the relationship between Hannibal and Will is one of obsession. The tension, the connection there, it’s definitely intentional, but it’s not romantic or sexual.
It’s not queerbaiting, it’s a completely different kind of relationship. Fandoms tend to focus on romantic or sexual relationships. Their’s is a soul-deep obsession.
dear fucking tumblr

I feel like I just watched a step by step pokemon evolution
All of these winged things are pollinators and extremely important to the environment. Bees are also an indicator species.
Wasps are also a predatory insect, making them important for garden pest control, unlike bees. They are just as useful and important. There are many different kinds of wasps. Some, like paper wasps, are no more aggressive than bees. They will not bother you if you do not bother them.
If wasps, particularly aggressive ones, have set up shop near your home, please consider hiring professionals who will remove and relocate these insects to a safe place, instead of killing them.
Teatime with Smaug
Bilbo: It’s so wonderful to have a cup of tea outside.
Smaug: When are we going back ? I miss my gold.
Bilbo : We just got here, Smaug. You need some fresh air. You’ve been cooped up inside the mountain for so long.
Queenokenshield’s Request : Female Bilbo and Smaug
Rae: “I just can’t eat in front of people.”
Stacey: “Why not?”
Rae: “Well, because, if I eat unhealthy food, then people will think ‘Oh, look at that fat cow. No wonder she got to that size,’ and if I eat healthy food, then they think ‘Well, who’re you trying to kid, love? You didn’t get to that size by eating salads.’”The fat experience in a nutshell. Bloody hell, My Mad Fat Diary is brilliant.
I once had a nurse practitioner say the exact same thing as the last gif.They hit the nail on the head every single time.
This is the most successful gifset that has come up from the show. Look at the notes, is crazy!
It’s bittersweet moment, a triumph for this amazing show but the sad reflection of society’s double standards.
Thankful for this.
Oh god thank fucking christ.
I usually don’t reblog these, but I feel like some of my followers could probably use the reassurance. I definitely have these kinds of thoughts sometimes.
so i’m not crazy for randomly thinking such thoughts? what a relief!
Edgar Allan Poe had a name for it too: The Imp of the Perverse. he compared the impulses to a demon that urges people to do the wrong thing simply because it can be done
The compulsion to jump from high places is called “l’appel du vide" in French. The call of the void. I think it’s specific to that one instance, but I think it’s a cool phrase for this phenomenon in general.
I think about this with random sharp objects laying around, too. “What if I just jammed this into my eye or throat right now? … oh god WHAT.” Just… fucking christ, brain. Don’t.
Invented allies of Mordor: The Chieftains of the Haradrim
«Harad’s tribes were divided —at least in the minds of the men of northwestern Middle-earth— into those of Near and Far Harad, although there were many tribes of the Haradrim, often mutually hostile.
Those of Near Harad were brown-skinned, with black hair and dark eyes, whereas the people of Far Harad had black skin.
Many say they only banded together due to the fact Sauron was slowly regaining power, and were fearful of Sauron if they continued to war against one another.»
