President Obama (via 6dogs9cats)
The Republicans are getting more absurd by the day. Did you know they are now talking about suing the President for delaying the employer mandate? That’s right—they’re suing the executive for failing to carry out a law that congressional Republicans have voted 54 times to repeal or weaken.
#we’re all on the same page re: his Batman but I submit to you that his Bruce Wayne would be out of this world #all chuckles and goofball smiles and unintentional sext selfies and tuxedos and acting sloppy drunk yet maintaining full adorableness #he’d be pulling faces and wearing Kanye shutter shades at the polo and he’d have a casual shoe collection that needed its own room #and everybody would be like ‘daawww that Bruce Wayne what an airhead but so cute right? did you hear he bought lunch for like 8 paparazzos who were waiting for him outside his fave restaurant?’ #and he’d just be this big goofy pouty celeb built like a brick shithouse #meanwhile #he’s working out on the parallel bars in the batcave - face like thunder and the righteous fury of all time
and i especially love the idea of his fakey bruce wayne-y acting he has a watch collection he has a wing of japanese art at the Met named after him and he stumbles around at the gala opening smiling benignly and asking people to explain things and then mispronouncing them and acting all embarrassed and being photographed rollerskating (badly) next to a model in the jogging lane of gotham central park and his cars are brightly coloured and difficult to insure and how he’s at a bar and the news flicks over to a story of a breakout at Arkham and he gets all still and whoever’s at his elbow is like ‘hey bruce - what’s with you?’ and idris!bruce just says ‘i have that same shirt as the news anchor - does mine look that bad?? you’d tell me right?’ (all tags from harrietvane)
I need this like burning. All of it. Please. Please give me the thing.
From their announcement:
For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.
We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.
Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.
Personally I have not really cared to much about this whole 4chan tumblr war. In fact I thought people were overreacting a bit, as I hadn’t seen anything suspicious. But I just went in the 4chan tag to see what was going on and I saw someone had posted this:
DO NOT DELETE SYSTEM32 . I do not know too too much about computers, but I do know that system32 is basically the most important thing on your computer. It is on /every/ working computer and basically holds everything you need for it to work properly. Now I don’t know if the person who posted it got it from someone who was trying to convince people of this, and they just honestly didn’t know, but that doesn’t matter. DO NOT DELETE SYSTEM 32.
Ps. If you don’t believe me, just do a quick google search. Don’t follow any posts like this unless you research what the so called virus is first, please!
Look at the original post’s notes.
There are people ACTUALLY reblogging it.
That’s exactly why I made this post.
I made it right after the original was made, but it was gaining posts quick. I know this is one of the oldest tricks in the books, and “only an idiot” would believe it, but so many people actually did.
We should teach young boys to respect women, but we should also teach young girls to respect women. Women should not see each other as enemies, but as allies. Stop telling young girls that the best they can be is “not like other girls”.
From 1989 to 2011, Barbara Gordon was widely considered the best-written disabled character in mainstream comics. She remains the best representation that the disabled community have ever had from DC Comics. Her disability did not prevent her from being a hero. She had no superpowers to fall back on, unlike characters such as Daredevil and Professor X. As Oracle, she moved out of Batman’s shadow to become her own woman, without forgetting where she came from. She led her own team, became a member of the Justice League in her own right, and provided a unique role linking together the heroes of DC Earth.
In 2011 DC put an end to that, stripping her of her leadership role, making her younger, regressing her back into a girl dressed like Batman, and deciding that representing the disabled community simply wasn’t worth the effort. One of the most distinct silhouettes in mainstream comics was abandoned to give her back the standard young able-bodied attractive heroine body.
I can understand that the designs for female heroes’ costumes are so bad that there’s a lot of excitement for one that’s remotely practical.
But it does sadden me a great deal to see so many people effectively applauding what is one of the biggest steps backward mainstream comics have ever seen in terms of representation and diversity.

I miss Oracle so freakin’ much.
