PAVONI Couture Fall/Winter 2013

Marvels of construction, but those weird beige-y pink ones would only look good on Lupita.  Mainly because anything looks good on Lupita.  She could show up in burlap and she’d still win the red carpet.

malvolio421 asked: Can you use your Deadpool clout at Marvel to finally write that Invisible Woman limited that we've all been waiting for? =P

gailsimone:

HA!

I don’t have any Marvel clout at all, Deadpool or otherwise, but yeah, a Sue series would be sweet!

I WISH we could have a Sue series.  Something to remind everyone that she is an incredible character with more going on than being Johnny’s sister, Reed’s wife, and Franklin and Val’s mother.

Whenever I hear the "Women are paid $.78 for the man’s $1" I flip it around.

Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.

It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …

bisexual activist and queer theory blogger Patrick RichardsFink 

this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1

A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes

A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes

A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes

A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes

A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes

That’s some bullshit right there.

Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.

Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.

'Why is Sansa such a bitch to Tyrion?!? He's only trying to be nice!!!!!!!'

Sansa is kept against her will

She is married against her will

Her father-in-law killed her mother and her brother

Her husband’s nephew has abused her countless of times and he killed her father

We as the audience know that Tyrion is kind and cares for Sansa, but she doesn’t know that. And even if she did, she has every right to place some resentment on him. Why does nobody get this.

Also SHE IS A FUCKING CHILD.

AND NOBODY HAS THE RIGHT TO TOUCH HER.

Is bodily autonomy really that hard for people?

Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.

The second one would be my ex. ASSHOLE.
The first one has NEVER happened to me. I don’t think a lot of guys know how to put together an outfit complete WITH accessories.

It looks like a woman’s handwriting in both, TBH.  At least I know I’m in the kind of relationship where neither of these would ever happen, and that’s a big fucking relief.

#john barrowman is having none of your misogynist bullshit

i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant
"hahahaha women do laundry right john?  you with me, john?"
"don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”

This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.

Bolding mine.
