asking for straight pride is like asking for able bodied parking spaces
thats a really good comparison because there are about seventy able bodied parking spaces to one disabled and able bodied people still insist on using the ones that arent theirs
this is seriously a great post
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience (via derikisu)
Keep this one in your back pocket for the next time someone acts like an ass and then tells you they’ve been through a lot of stuff. Respectful and yet still firmly keeping respect for yourself.
I find it really interesting that the historical men like Vincent Van Gogh, Winston Churchill and Richard Nixon portrayed in Moffat Who are always three dimensional and treated respectfully, while the historical women like Elizabeth the First and Nefertiti, are always love sick idiots drooling over the Doctor.
It almost seems like Moffat cannot take women seriously, even if they ruled nations.
im so sad about stucky like all the time like i’m at lunch with my mom and she’s like “so what are u gonna have to eat?” and i’m like “mom please. steve rogers dropped his shield because he couldn’t fight bucky. he let bucky punch the shit out of him because it was the best option he had. he stole his old uniform from a museum to wear when he went up against bucky in the hopes it would spark his memory. i’m having pasta.”
being 17 is weird because you can get hit on by 14-year-olds and 20-year-olds and it’s THE SAME AGE DIFFERENCE
It’s also weird because you can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life. You are the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Half your age plus seven is so much better than a legal, binary switch between 17.99999 and 18.
Half of 17 = 8.5 + 7 = 15.5
Half of 20 = 10 + 7 = 17
There is a much larger difference between the maturity of a 14 year-old and a 17 year old than there is between a 20 year old and a 17 year old despite the number of years being the same. Half your age plus seven is remarkably accurate in reflecting the reality of this (at least in cultures I’ve been a part of.)
Also, is there a single 17 year old on earth who has seen “Threes Company”? This seems like a weird thing for there to even be a GIF of… but you never know, maybe there’s a huge Jack Tripper fandom on Tumblr? If not…let’s make it happen…
