    can i make a band called bizzaro world where we rewrite happy songs into really fucking awful morbid shitty songs but to a point where its more funny than upsetting 

    pretty sure there would be copyright infrindgement issues with like

    the bizzaro part and the rewriting parts

    technically, I think what you’re talking about would fall under ‘fair use’ (and I don’t know why there would be any issues with “bizzaro” being in the name). Realistically, those with the most money can generally do what they want, so you’d want to do like Weird Al and get permission from the artists you’re parodying.

    bizzaro is a dc comics villian and i would specifically be using that use of the word and spelling and that why i thought about copyright

    idk if its spelled differently 

    Ah. My first thought was of that one comic strip that used to (might still be maybe) be in the newspaper funnies. But I thought it was more of a general cultural concept. I’m pretty sure you could get away with it for a band name, easy peasy, but I might be wrong.

    more fanfictions about muggle-borns sneaking in pencils and calculators, and trading them illicitly, little black-market eraser dealers and “yo I got some graph paper if you wanna fuckin pass astronomy this year” 

    can they be nicknamed smuggle-borns or

    Portraits challenge what it means to be LGBT

    These are just some of the many ways members of the LGBT community identify themselves in a beautiful photo series from San Francisco-based photographer Sarah Deragon.

    Deragon’s “The Identity Project” has taken her around the country as she “seeks to explore the labels we choose to identify with when defining our gender and sexuality.” Her portraits show the amazing diversity and vibance of a queer community that for too long has been defined by outsiders.

    See more and quotes from Deragon

    look at this nasty bullshit that just got recommended to me by tumblr.

    "cisgenderqueer"
    What the fuck.

    "gender blind"
    You are a liar and probably avoid trans women on the rare occasion you see one.

    "top/bottom"
    These are not fuckin gender identities what are you doing

    "~THREE SPIRIT~ *is a white person*"
    WHAT. THE FUCK. ARE YOU DOING. LOOK AT YOU APPROPRIATE NATIVE CULTURE, WAY TO GO, SIT DOWN AND REEVALUATE YOUR ENTIRE LIFE.

    OH AND LOOK AT THAT WHOPPING ZERO TRANS WOMEN, INCREDIBLE.

    Personally, I don’t think we can assume what you do from ‘gender blind’, and, while some of them do describe themselves as tops and bottoms, they also use descriptors like ‘feminist’, ‘black’, and ‘provacateur’. I don’t think that the intent was for everyone to only use gender and sexuality identity labels for this project. Like, I don’t think ‘top’ and ‘bottom’ are terribly useful as identities, certainly not for me, but clearly they’re important to some people.

    That said, that they neglected to include anyone who specifically identified themself as a trans woman is somewhat disappointing. (Though, it’d be more disappointing if they included people who specifically identified as trans men.) The probably white “”“”“Three Spirit”“”“”” person is hella sketch though. Gross. “Cisgenderqueer” too. Wtf.

    You reach down a girls pants, ready to reveal her dick for the first time. Your hand emerges after a firm grasp only to be spilling over with a handful of peanuts. You’re not sure what to do. She’s looking at you longingly, like she thinks you know what you’re supposed to be doing.
    You just don’t know. The room is silent. The peanuts are uncomfortably warm. Her eyes glisten with hope and you still don’t know what to do.

    can you imagine what would happen if arthur weasley discovered google 

    The Harry Potter books are set in the early 90’s. I bet that he discovered the Internet around 2000, and was captivated. He probably spent years getting the Ministry to adopt wi-fi, and now he spends his lunch breaks perusing Wikipedia. At home he has a state-of-the-art computer rig with like four massive monitors and he marathons “How It’s Made” on Netflix.

    Learning self respect

    realsocialskills:

    I’m twenty years old and I can’t help but think that everyone thinks I’m stupid. I stutter, I feel slow, I say dumb things, and I sometimes catch people giving me judging looks. No one’s ever said that to me except maybe once or twice when I was much younger, but I can’t help be bothered by it. I feel like there’s something wrong with me mentally, but people don’t want to address it. I hate it. I’d rather be messed up and not aware of it than this. How do I learn to love and be okay with myself?
    realsocialskills said:

    The most helpful thing I know about this, I learned from Dave Hingsburger’s book _The Are Word_. And, in the simplest form, it’s this:
    You’re ok. They’re mean.

    If you stutter and think slowly and have cognitive problems and have trouble communicating, there probably are a lot of people in your life who think you are stupid.
    They may think that, but it isn’t true.

    You’re ok. They’re mean.
    People who think that you are stupid are being mean. People who give you judging looks are being really mean.

    You’re ok. They’re mean. 
    The way you talk doesn’t make them look down on you. The way you think doesn’t make them look down on you. Your voice is not the problem. Your brain is not the problem. They’re mean because they’re bigoted and mean.

    You’re ok. They’re mean.
    And, in the words of Laura Hershey: you get proud by practicing

    I know it hurts. It hurts terribly. It’s not your fault, and you won’t always feel this awful. It takes time. It takes practice. It’s slow, and incremental. Try not to be hard on yourself for struggling with this. We all do. It’s hard. That’s not your fault, either.
    You’re ok. They’re mean. And as you practice understanding this, and as you practice getting proud, it will be easier to feel ok and harder for them to hurt you.

Nothing says “I support gay equality” like a straight couple kissing in public.

… I’m a girl
We’re both girls

nothing says “I support equality” like assuming someone is a boy because they have short hair

ok but the “Only Gets it Missionary” sign

    People are losing their fire and forgetting about Ferguson. That’s exactly what the police want, though: for all of this to just go away and for people to forget about it.

    Don’t let that happen.
