Miranda. 23. Filipina-Australian, cisgender, and bisexual lady-type. Useless wastrel who daydreams in sequins, comic book expressions and musical numbers.

You might know me from that one glasses meme.

Prone to posting intersectional feminist quotes, various and varying babes, items of the literary and comic nerd culture and the occasional tentacle.

Any reaction images/gifs I post (unless they are of my face) are almost definitely not mine.

AU Where Steve survives the war, but the serum begins to lose it’s potency and degrade in him system and he reverts back to normal. He is now in full health, but no longer has his post human abilities. He tries to fight in the Korean War, but feels he is a liability without his abilities, so resigns his commission.

He still wants to help and inspire people so he uses his fame to start a TV show for children. He doesn’t want to be associated with war and violence so the producers can’t call it the Captain America show.

So Steve puts on a cardigan and calls the show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood

I hate you. Why would you think of something like this??

Kids please don’t think that it’s unusual or special to be dating someone with whom you can watch netflix and eat pizza and hold hands and also have hot sex with

It concerns me when I see millions of notes on a post that’s like “fuck me hard but also be sweet with me”

Like what kinds of relationships are you in that you think this is a revolutionary thing to ask

A Proposed General Rule about Pictures of Naked People

fishingboatproceeds:

I mean, I’m not saying that we can enforce this as law or anything. I also might be wrong about this. But:

Just as a general rule, I feel like we should not look at pictures of the breasts or genitalia of people who would rather we not look at pictures of their breasts or genitalia.

As a corollary to that general rule, I would add that I don’t see anything wrong with looking at pictures of breasts or genitalia of people who have invited us to do so. There seem to be plenty such pictures for us to get a reasonably good grasp of, like, the diversity of unclothed human anatomy without having to look at people who wish we wouldn’t.

This seems pretty straightforward to me. Yes, the photographer(s) who photographed Kate Middleton’s grainy distant breasts were violating her privacy. But so do people who choose to look at those pictures.

So maybe we can just agree not to? And this goes not only for princesses, I would argue, but also for people who send things to their romantic partners, who turn out to be jerks and release those photos publicly. Or people whose phones are hacked. etc.

In this world where most every curiosity can be satiated, it seems to me genuinely heroic to resist the urge to look at everything that can be seen, and instead to respect the wishes of those who feel violated or hurt by the availability of images they wish were private.

Seemed a good day to reblog this.

the very fact that the philippine government is actually passing an anti-selfie bill is just fucked-up in and of itself

and god i wish i was kidding about this

what the fuck

their selfie game is soooo weak that they’re using the power of the government to shut the competition down smfh

Thanks Tumblr for once again taking things out of context

"According to Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Zarate, there’s a bill in Congress that seeks to bar taking photos of people without their permission."

Like that’s the second sentence.

I know the article is obviously click-bait title but c’mon.

Also, if you wanted to get mad about the bill, why not get mad about how this bill might affect things like citizen journalism?
