|—||Grant Gustin on the difference between Glee and comic book fans (x)|
"Of course there aren’t any gay characters in animated movies! THEY’RE FOR KIDS!"
Yeah! Kids’ movies are supposed to be innoc-
Because telling kids that they can love whoever they want is TOO TERRIFYING AND CONFUSING. But showing them murder, execution, death, frightening images, war, and bullying is just fine.
Not to mention 101 Dalmatians where a crazy woman wanted to SKIN 99 PUPPIES

This article is heartbreaking. And true.
There is a reason I throttled back on doing a lot of creative gaming content a few years ago. And why I still avoid taking some jobs in the gaming world when they’re offered to me. And why, when we have a female host on any of our Geek and Sundry gaming shows, we have to monitor the comments on YouTube extra, to remove the many comments that are offensive and pollute our community’s spirit of equality. Because I hate that shit.
There is an endemic acceptance in the gamer world that “well, it comes with the territory” when a woman receives threats and harassment and the hateful anonymous internet dialogue is focused on her body and whether they would “do” her or not. I don’t know why this became okay. It’s a vocal minority that has been given way too much power over the industry dialogue, and I am so happy to see more and more articles like this shining the light on what reasonable gamer men and women have been conned into accepting as a given.
NOTHING is a given in this world. And frankly, it taints the art form we so love and keeps it back from becoming more respected and more diverse to not at least TRY to fight it. Gaming deserves more than complacency in this area.
Even posting this link will cause me to receive hateful Tumblr PMs. I can always tell when something I write gets linked on certain places on the internet (like 4 Chan or a few other forums of troll-hood), because I’ll immediately get dozens of hate mails along the veins of what is posted in this article.
Well, I’m a lucky one to be prominent enough to have 10 supporters for every hater. I mostly feel sorry for girls and women who aren’t in my position, who may just give up on gaming when they’re too beaten down to fight anymore.
We have to change that. For the good of what we love doing, gamers! Okay, back to work :)
Week 2, Aug 10th - 16th: Friends 4 Life
What if the New York group were all geniuses? What if the New New Directions lived in the 70’s? What if the entire story was something a parent was telling their kids? What if these were the best FRIENDS you’ve ever had?
Let’s crossover Glee with these awesome comedies about friendship: That 70’s Show, The Big Bang Theory, The New Girl, How I Met Your Mother and Friends.
"Kurt’s the hot shot now."
He always has been
1) The preview of Principal Sue is so interesting. So terrible that there’s nothing she or the school can do about Karofsky bullying Kurt until Kurt is physically hurt. The same rules apply to domestic violence situations (or did, once) and that’s so awful. I like that Sue resigned in order to be an extra pair of eyes in the hall for Kurt.
2) Rachel leading the meeting of glee girls with boyfriends because “if something bad happens to Kurt, we’ll never forgive ourselves.” While her ways are antiquated, her heart is definitely in the right place.
3) So intriguing that Mike and Artie are the first two who confront Karofsky. Both are typically quiet and tend to avoid conflict.
4) Jane Lynch and Carole Burnett sound amazing on Ohio, particularly Jane’s low harmonies.
5) Carole and Burt’s wedding is the most fantastic. I love that, as much as it’s about them getting married, it’s also about them, and Finn and Kurt, becoming a family. And I just noticed another level of Just the Way You Are awesomeness. Because as much as Finn wants to dance with Kurt, he respects Kurt’s hesitance and doesn’t force anything. He only moved forward when Kurt took his hand. So happy and positive.

He’s still a hiccup
I FREAKING NEEDED THIS GIF FROM THE MOMENT I SAW THE MOVIE I MEAN VALKA IS JUST LIKE RUNNING EFFORTLESSLY OVER THE ROCKS AND HICCUP IS FALLING DOWN THEM AND SCRAMBLING UP TO KEEP PACE WITH HER JUST WHAT A DORK
I like how Toothless is there to stop Hiccup from falling on more than one occasion (ending of HTTYD, GOTNF) and here he’s just like “up you go my silly uncoordinated human we don’t have all day for this, damn your booty’s getting heavy man”
Okay but can we please just appreciate this clip
think about it
someone animated that
As usual they post but they dont credit!

The guy in the green floral pants is Kurt …… Blaine convinced him to try boatshoes.
Last night my little sister (5th grade) was making an e-mail account
She saw gender and went to click female when she noticed the “other” choice
She looked at me confused and I started to explain that some people don’t think they fit in with strictly male or female
"Oh! You mean like transgender and stuff like that. I was freaked out for a second- I thought they meant robots."
Yet another example the kids are more open-minded than adults
"He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee."
BUCKY BARNES IS NOT THE VILLAIN OF THE FUCKING STORY
BUT DO YOU REALIZE WHAT THIS MEANS
HARRY POTTER HAD SO MUCH RESPECT FOR THAT AMAZING WOMAN THAT THE MOMENT SHE WAS DISRESPECTED HE WAS FILLED WITH SUCH A POTENT RAGE HE WAS ABLE TO CAST AN UNFORGIVABLE CURSE
Okay so I never (like… never) put captions on posts. I’m breaking my own rule for this one.
This scene makes me so fucking emotional and it just reinforces the fact that Minerva McGonagall is such an important (yet drastically forgotten and overlooked) character and person in Harry’s life.
The only other person Harry on whom Harry tried to use the Cruciatus curse was Bellatrix, right after she killed Sirius.
The indignation and hatred Harry felt toward Amycus Carrow spitting in Professor McGonagall’s face equalled that of Bellatrix killing his godfather.
I could go on about how much of a mother figure McG was to Harry for ages (like hELLO SHE WAITED ALL DAY SITTING ON A WALL IN HER ANIMAGUS IN LITTLE WHINGING TO SEE WHERE DUMBLEDORE WAS LEAVING BABY HARRY AND THEN TOTALLY TOLD HIM OFF BECAUSE SHE KNEW THE DURSLEYS WOULD TREAT HIM LIKE SHIT).
But the fact that this scene was left out of the final film - that Harry fucking torturing a Death Eater was deemed not important enough - makes me so angry because this scene shows so much of his character and his deep love and admiration for such an important person… And we all know that Dame Maggie Smith would have killed this on screen.
