Zuko through the years
“I got both of them from local shelters. When I got her in 2006, the staff told me she was a shepherd husky. I go to the dog park, I’m meeting people with shepherd husky mixes, and they look nothing like her. I get in my car, I’m driving, I look in the rearview mirror, I see these eyes and I’m like, I’ve got a wolf in my car. Then, when she was 10-months old, there was a shepherd breeder and trainer in the dog park, and at the end of the lesson, the trainer came up to me and asked, ‘What kind of dog is that?’ And I’m thinking, Shepherd husky. You should know, you are a breeder. She said, ‘That’s a wolf.’”
Thats mildly hilarious
#i get very emotional thinking about this scene #our last shot of sharon is sharon determined to keep going #a lot of people see this and go OH GOD BUT SHARON KILLING STEVE #and yeah okay maybe they meant this as a nod to that #or set-up to that #but more than that this is sharon #this is /sharon carter/ #this is about her character #sharon’s world falls apart and she moves on #in the fiercest fucking way possible (tags via: theladymonsters)
#Also I don’t know why everyone keeps going OMG SHARON SHOOTING STEVE #Cause like #What the fuck her entire final act scene was her wanting to kill Rumlow and missing him #So what do we see? #HER PERFECTING HER MOTHERFUCKING HEART SHOTS #Which would be right where Rumlow’s gun belts cross #YOU GIMME A THIRTEEN/CROSSBONES FIGHT GODDAMN YOU MARVEL (via robinsgirlwonder)
People keep going OMG SHARON SHOOTING STEVE because fandom is pathetic and keeps worshipping Brubaker’s uncreative bullshit in the desperate hope that the Cap IV will be BuckyCap and thereby ruin everything good and positive about this franchise by forcing us to suffer through Bucky manpaining it up on road trips through the rain while Seb Stan cries prettily for the camera.
I have two potential ID pictures and I know exactly which one I’m going to try to submit
I under stand that my head is tilted by a professional smile???
How is my smile not professional???
Let’s try round 2.
I’m very confused. I must inquire further.
LEGITIMATE LOUD SCREAMING THIS IS IT, THIS IS THE DAY I DIE
i never knew friendzoning boys was as easy as saying thanks im gonna use my manners more
further evidence that straight boys think compliments are magic words that are supposed to make women immediately strip naked
What’s the appropriate, non-friendzoning response?
"You look pretty today."
"Okay, fine, I’ll suck your dick."
when will straight boys stop
blackboard is the worst invention of all time because there’s literally no way to escape your homework. sick with the flu? homework’s on blackboard. snow day? homework’s on blackboard. house burned down? used your fucking phone because the fucking homework’s on blackboard
Or you could, like, you know, just be happy that someone’s making an effort towards rape prevention. But yeah, let’s complain that it’s not perfect, that’s good.
This isn’t a complaint at all- it’s simply saying that instead of coming up with every “inventive anti rape” device under the sun, people need to start paying attention to the real problem- stopping rapists from raping.
I think it’s great that four college men came up work this product-it’s a great deal of chemistry and hard work that went into this project. I commend them. I really do think that it’s a step in the right direction.
But there are a few dangerous misconceptions that women face, when it comes to rape, that anti-rape products like these don’t help.
1. That women are most often raped by strangers.
This is simply not correct. It does happen, but not in the frequency that some people seem to think- a staggering. 66% of rapes and 75% of sexual assaults are committed by someone who the victim knows.
No amount of color-changing nail polish, pepper spray, cat eyes key chains, rape whistles, etc will be effective if you’re not on the defensive. If you’re just hanging at a friends house. If you’re at work. If you’re with your partner. These products are all great, but only if you’re expecting to use them. If you’re at ease with people that you know around you, then what?
2. That if a woman is raped, it’s her fault.
Was she dressed modestly? Had she had sex before? Was she drunk? Was she out at night? Was she carrying a rape whistle? Pepper spray? Anti rape nail polish?
After a woman is raped there are many questions, but the blame is often times put on the woman for not avoiding the rape. Nothing justifies raping another person. If a drunk woman walking naked alone at night in the street gets raped, it should be taken just as seriously as a woman “doing everything right” with her pepper spray in hand and keys between her fingers like little knives. Both were violated and both deserve to be treated with respect. But how would the media report these? Very, very differently. Because the responsibility of the rape is rarely put on the rapist- but rather what the woman was doing, or should have been doing, to protect herself.
Here’s the bottom line- these products are great for personal safety, for personal awareness. I carry every protection product you can think of. There are a lot of great products out there, and if it makes you feel more protected, and if it makes you feel like you could escape an attack- by all means, USE these products!
But this does not solve the problem. The problem is that so long as people are not taught what consent really means, and are taught NOT TO RAPE- all the anti-rape products in the world won’t stop rapists.
I’d encourage everyone to read this awesome article, which makes many points on why this is great, but there is so much more to be done. Also linked to some stats on rapists.
From the article:
“Encouraging women to buy products to make themselves safer is sort of like cutting off the weed at its stem, instead of at its root: It might give you something to do, but you aren’t going to actually eradicate weeds from your garden. To stop rape, we need to teach men not to rape, not teach women that it’s their responsibility to prevent it.” (Elizabeth Plank)
Telling me, a trans male, that you dated has no physical chemistry with you made me kind of :/ especially when you can’t explain to me what physical chemistry is :// and then proceeding to tell me, still trans male, you felt AWKWARD hooking up with me :/ and then outing me to your twitter and friends as if I gave you the consent to make the tweet :/// sad
