I really love subcultures.
Like a lot.
It's pretty unreasonable.

Going to a (pretty shit actually) Canadian university for a Women's and Gender Studies degree. I have a life-long love affair with fandom as is evidenced by this blog. I'm a slightly (lol) intense lesbian feminist. I like books and cats. And also dragons. I have a posse of dragons with me at all times. so rawr

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)

Hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnngh. We could’ve had Idris Elba as Batman and instead these fucking imbeciles in Hollywood picked Ben whitebread Affleck? Give me an entire break kthnx.

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts

Why don’t most superheroines look like this?

Because most comic books are drawn by men.

Reblogging for artistic reference.

Yes. Artistic reference is why I am reblogging this.

This is why I hate it when people draw the likes of Wonder Woman or Power Girl or She-Hulk without making them muscular because ‘that’s not feminine’. Because clearly, you know, it bloody well is.

Totally reblogging for the artistic reference. Definitely.

HELP HARVEY GET TOP SURGERY

horrorchampharvey:

I hate having to ask for money like this, but I’m in a bad financial situation. I’m currently in university, which I’m paying for on my own, and have zero disposable income. Last month I only had 20$ in my savings account and somehow stretched it for a few weeks.

I’ve really messed up my back by binding my chest. I never meant to hurt myself like this but I can no longer bind for more than 30 minutes without being in pain. Even when I’m not binding, my back gets numb patches on it, I can’t even wear my safety vest at work with things in the pockets without it causing me pain. On top of that, there are plenty of other complications. 

Whatever money I’m not spending on school, I’m spending on treating my back problems so I can still function as a human being. So, I haven’t been able to put money away for top surgery. I desperately need it. I’ve been living as male for five years but I can’t continue to bind at school because of my health problems. The only long term solution is top surgery.

If you’re able and willing to donate, I appreciate it so much! I can’t do much in return for your kindness besides give you my heartfelt thanks.

This winter: wizards trying to prove they’re manly masculine male men without comparing wand size.  Beards and bear fur will be trending, although we hear that never went out of style at Durmstrang Institute.

Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.

Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)

OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.

Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.

Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.

Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”

Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).

Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.

Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.

Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.
