apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
I’m in on this feud and I have chosen my side.
MARA WILSON, YOU HAVE MY SWORD.
AND YOU HAVE MY BOW.
AND MY AXE!
These are the best gender neutral new baby greeting cards I have ever seen in my entire life.
Aaaaaa THAT IS SO CUTE AND GOOD
a little girl who grows up thinking all doors are automatic but actually she’s haunted by a really polite ghost
Children’s gender roles as imposed on adults. Very ,very, very well done.
thats the reasest shit
fun story time, when i was in a line to buy something at disneyland the other day a woman pushed in front of me to ask the cashier if a t-shirt her son wanted was for boys or for girls
the cashier says “it’s unisex”
woman: “yes but is it a boys or a girls shirt?”
cashier: “any child can wear that shirt”
woman: “yes but is it for boys?”
this exchange went on for several moments until the cashier gave in and politely said “yes boys can wear that shirt”
and i feel super bad for her because she clearly wanted to tell this woman to buy her son the damn shirt because he’s five years old and five year olds can wear whatever the hell they want (and so can anybody for that matter) but unfortunately she couldn’t say that to a customer.
some parents really need to calm down with the gender expectations
And here they are:
Thermoception: Ability to sense heat and cold. Thermoceptors in the brain are used for monitoring internal body temperature.
Proprioception: The sense of where your body parts are located relevant to each other.
Chronoception: Sense of the passing of time. Your body has an internal clock.
Equilibrioception: The sense that allows you to keep your balance and sense body movement in terms of acceleration and directional changes.
Magentoception: This is the ability to detect magnetic fields. Unlike most birds, humans do not have a strong magentoception, however, experiments have demonstrated that we do tend to have some sense of magnetic fields.
Tension Sensors: These are found in such places as your muscles and allow the brain the ability to monitor muscle tension.
Nociception: In a word, pain. This was once thought to simply be the result of overloading other senses, such as “touch”, but it has it’s own unique sensory system. There are three distinct types of pain receptors: cutaneous (skin), somatic (bones and joints), and visceral (body organs).
anyone know what this is from?
"Judgement Day" by EC Comics. From wikipedia:
The story depicted a human astronaut, a representative of the Galactic Republic, visiting the planet Cybrinia inhabited by robots. He finds the robots divided into functionally identical orange and blue races, one of which has fewer rights and privileges than the other. The astronaut decides that due to the robots’ bigotry, the Galactic Republic should not admit the planet. In the final panel, he removes his helmet, revealing himself to be a black man.
Apparently the Comics Code Authority tried to prevent the author from making the main character black.

i was in a full-sized cinema with perhaps eight other people. in cardiff central. the busiest part of the capital city. on the same day the film was released. oh wales, i love you.
and i really liked it! it was a funny action packed movie that left you with good feelings all round. it had a great cast, an excellent soundtrack, not too many problematic things (a few ableist jokes but everyone was clearly unimpressed with the character making the jokes? i guess?), well fleshed out character relationships that didn’t just focus on romance (especially refreshing for the leading women) and GROOT MY PRECIOUS TREE BABY
two things that needs to go under a cut for spoilers:
Improved the Hawkeye poster for Avengers 2.
Over the Garden Wall — Behind the Scenes
It’s no secret we’d do just about anything to support the wonderful work of former Adventure Timer Pat McHale, so it shouldn’t be a surprise we’d post this behind-the-scenes video for his upcoming Cartoon Network project, Over the Garden Wall. It looks so good!
This looks really cool!
