We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry

The whole article sadly hits very close to home.

my mom has been a cop for over 20 years and she is the one who constantly warns me about police aggression and young male cops and told me that if you’re ever alone on a rural road and a cop throws their lights on to put on your four ways and drive to the next gas station before stopping because so many cops are scum and it’s not worth the chance of getting hurt. the fact that SHE feels the need to tell me this shit scares me to death

In a continued effort to bring new readers to the world of comic books, Marvel teamed up with ABC’s The View to promote the next story arc in Thor, God of Thunder. Looks like a new hand will be wielding the mighty Mjolnir, and it’s not the typical male archetype we’ve come to expect from our Asgardian hammer tosser. The new Thor will be a woman. 

“This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before,” said series writer, Jason Aaron. 

Aaron will be joined on the book by Cyclops artist, Russell Dauterman.

Just who will take up the mantle of the God of Thunder? Marvel may wait til San Diego Comic Con next week to drop that bombshell on us. But on The View, a little clue was hinted about her origins, “The story behind her is she created herself. She was saved by Thor and she came down to Earth, followed him, and made herself look like Thor and so now she’s taking over.” 

REALLY looking forward to this!

THIS IS ALL I EVER WANTED!

a (mortal human?) woman picks up Mjolnir, and is WORTHY and possess the power of Thor. No Girl-Thor, Lady-Thor, gender-bent-Thor just a woman who embodies the god now. Thor was once a disabled man, now he is a woman. THIS. IS. AMAZING.

Thor is an equal opportunity powerset. Just so long as you are good of heart (among other things) you too could BE THOR.

This chick IS THOR. not a knock off, not a hyphen, not an appendage. She is not adjacent to Thor. Not his sidekick. not his love interest. SHE. IS. THOR. 

This means SO MUCH.

You explain it better than that TheView people. I gotta agree.

The hype is real.@Squidlici0us

all-tsun-and-no-dere said: Your Anthy cosplay is lovely but a lot of cosplayers of color have spoken out against white cosplayers using makeup to imitate other races.

…Good thing I’m not white?

What is even the point of this ask? Why preface it with a nice compliment if you were going to attack me over an assumption? I’m still wrapping my head around the accusation of imitating a fictional character’s race, and the fact you’re accusing me of using make up to darken my own skin.

For reference, I used a primer in my own skin tone and Benefit’s “Hello Flawless Brightening Suncscreen Make Up”, also in my skin tone. And for the record, I’m an olive skinned Middle Eastern woman.

Please stop policing minorities and groups you don’t belong to and stop the abuse of this call out culture. It does no one any favors, and in this case only alienates and harasses POCs.

a lot of ‘cosplayers of color’ have also said that they have no issue with makeup use if it is done respectfully and without mallice

so????
