did theorlandojones seriously make a rape joke tonight
what the actual fuck
see here…when he made that sally hemmings joke last year and many of us called it out for being tasteless amongst other things, fandom quickly forgave him. i noted it and kept it in mind because his apology really wasn’t anything to write home about, but i figured that maybe he’d educate himself on rape culture, in particular when it comes to black women and other women of colour, but apparently not.
DAMMIT theorlandojones! Come on.
I’m so disappointed.
During World War II, Josephine Baker served with the French Red Cross and was an active member of the French resistance movement. Using her career as a cover Baker became an intelligence agent, carrying secret messages written in invisible ink on her sheet music. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre, and received a Medal of the Resistance in 1946. In 1961 she received the highest French honor, the Legion d’Honneur awarded by then President Charles de Gaulle.
Our loss, U.S.A….
If you don’t admire the shit out of J. Baker, who was also pretty openly bisexual and adopted NINETEEN children in addition to the badassery mentioned above, I want you to go sit in the corner and think about your life choices.
um she was also a huge civil rights activist and her refusal to perform for segregated audiences at major clubs that were fallin over themselves to book her helped de-segregate vegas performance venues
aaaand she had a pet cheetah
aaand she slept with Frida Kahlo.
Black queer sex workers continue to shit on all your faves
where do grandmas and aunties even buy this shit? It’s not in stores???do they have a dealer who sells to them????
you go aunty mmmbuttery
OK OK this is funny. However I feel I have to point out that when fans have spoken like this about her husband she has gone completely nuts and accused fans of all sorts including exposing her children to porn (despite the fact that Mr Freeman has appeared in more than one film naked and engaged in sexual acts, which is a lot easier to find online than explicit fanart) . I would like to know why it’s ok for her to talk like this but not the rest of us???
The irony of this act floors me. Not funny when you consider the source.
Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.
1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.
2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.
3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.
Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.
The thing is, though, while I’m deeply disappointed in SHIELD for not trying harder maybe they didn’t try harder on purpose like ‘let’s ease him into this we can’t hide it but let’s not make it too drastic’
also I like to think that Steve’s brain was putting up pictures in his head, like a side-by-side visual analysis (bc photographic memory) and doing checks like ‘no no no nope’
at one point I was handing over someone's dutch pot????? from one side of the river to the other??? yeah someone wanted to get their pot from one side of the river to the other but we were in the middle crossing from the other side so we were blocking them so we were like 'give it over' and they handed us the pot and we passed it over
hah operation DUTCH POT RIVER CROSS
my sister ended up doing some kind of warrior 1 pose with the pot over her head so that someone behind her could get it
that river was real fast and the current was tugging us and you know how hard it is to keep your balance with a dutch pot in hand
so next time you're at the river YOU JUST SAY NO TO POT YOUNG LADY
Josh Thomas talks about male suicide
I wonder how feminists will react to this
Probably ignore it then go back to making male tears mugs and gifs
Actually this is a very common idea among feminists
It’s something feminists have been talking about for years it’s called toxic masculinity and it’s one of the common threads among the topic of ‘Patriarchy hurts men too’. If fact the first time I read about toxic masculinity was on a feminist blog.
If you actually read things feminists talk about instead of straw manning them you might know this but OH WELL
THIS is why we need feminism. Men suffer from patriarchal systems as well. I really need to people to stop ignorantly perpetuating the myth that to be a feminist, is to hate men. Men need feminism too! Feminist ideals allow all of us to be human.
I hate when people take serious issues, such as suicide to say, “in your face feminists” when you do that, you cease to care about male victims. Men commit suicide should be a complete sentence. Talking about suicide shouldn’t be something to use as a cudgel against women.
As someone in this thread said, it’s called toxic masculinity. Who primarily reinforces hyper masculinity? Other men, but somehow that dudebro culture is entirely off the hook and women are entirely to blame. If you really want to talk about this issue seriously, then men are going to have to start taking responsibility for the culture that hazes men for showing a semblance of emotion. poppypicklesticks
Some (late) inktober stuff with prompts from make-a-guess! Thanks for the requests!! I made both because I liked the ideas so much. <3

As for tattoos, omg I totally had to draw another Iruka with tattoos. I drew him with a huge back tattoo some time ago as well for one of megyals story, and this is a really different take, but I enjoyed drawing it either way!! So I hope you like them! ^_^
