The internet’s most beloved geek Wil Wheaton calls out misogyny in gaming, and confronts the men who attack him for doing so. Incredible. 

Yeah Wil messes up sometimes but generally he’s a good bloke.

Arggggh, cramps. I hate you body at times. 

Death threats drive Anita Sarkeesian from her home

The thing is, agree with what she says and her vids or not, like her or hate her, she has done nothing, NOTHING, that warrants this. It is disgusting, pure and simple. The crap she’s been put through for making videos is amazing.

All this week we will be highlighting #27BiStories from bisexual Advocate journalist Eliel Cruz with graphics by Trivo Studio 

Part 2 — #27BiStories: When Did You Come Out? What Was The Response Like?

Hoping to shine a light on the myths about the bisexual community — both in and out of lesbian, gay, transgender, and queer spaces — The Advocate has launched a four-part series written from interviews with 27 self-identified bisexuals, all of whom happen to be in relationships. Earlier this week, we asked our sources to confont the biggest misconceptions they face as bisexual people, and today, we’re turning our attention to the “coming out” stories that so often unite members of the LGBT community. 

Do those stories provide the same kind of “we’ve all been there” unity that many in the lesbian, gay, and transgender communities experience when sharing their own coming-outs? Or do bisexual people face ridicule and disbelief from the very people who claim to want to liberate others from the closet? Read on to find out. 

This is #27BiStories. 

Also, the way the LGBTQ community treats bi people in relationships with different gendered people as outsiders intruding in on the community or appropriating it? Is disgusting.

Angelina Jolie is bi, she isn’t an outsider who says nice stuff now and then, she’s a part of the community, it doesn’t matter that she’s with a man. Lady Gaga is bi, and think of you what you will but she is not appropriating the LGBTQ community as an outsider, she is a PART of it.

I am SO goddamned tired of this shit. 

damn, they won’t let up. we can’t run and we can’t surrender. what do they expect us to do? they killed this woman over what some merchandise? you let out on some garments what twisted universe do you gotta come from when a overtime punching rent-a-cop even bothers to chase and then pull a gun? smh rip because there is nothing but war on this side of the final curtain.

I cannot.. I can’t….

trillaryclinton thehomiejazz
y’all hear about this?!?!?

What the fuck

Remember all the famous white girls that were caught shopliting and not shot and killed? Remember when white tumblr went and did life hacks for shopliftin because it was “sticking it to the man” in their upper middle class world where they read one post about Marxism and liked a picture of a sweatshop in china one time

This mother was killed without a second thought its not about shopliftit its about killing black people, its genocide on our people

I’m just past being surprised at hearing about all this. Oh, another black person has been shot by a cop or some guy claiming to be standing his ground, oh there’s another mass shooting, oh some poor kid accidentally killed a guy with an uzi cause her parents were idiot gun nuts. 

Just, when it comes to America I am so far past being surprised and that is wrong on so many levels. This stuff SHOULD surprise us, this woman should not be dead. Just.

Who the frell thinks it’s a good idea to shoot a woman for shoplifting, especially in front of her kids!

because nothing says christmas like your soulmate dying of radiation poisoning giving you one last goodbye through the glass while your knees crumple under the weight of your sorrow, the upcoming 2015 wrath of khan hallmark christmas ornament is a must have!

Someone seriously thought it’d be a good idea for an ornament for a time of year meant to be about joy and togetherness?

I mean, easter sure that’d fit but…. this is Kirk loosing his t’hy’la, his best friend and soulmate and Spock dying from radiation poisoning. How is that appropriate?

Now, the Uhura one looks nice. 

No, I got mixed up. I think because there is chicken pox vaccine I knew there was a pox vaccine and I grouped small pox/thought it was part of the routine childhood vaccines along with chicken pox, etc

I heard there was a chickenpox vaccine, don’t think there was when I was a kid and don’t know a ton about it. But no, smallpox isn’t in the standard bag of vaccines and this is true for every country so far as I can think of.

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

My library card already gets me multiple “real” books, e-books, audiobooks, magazines and movies per month. For free.

Kindle Unlimited offers nothing from big presses, and no guarantee the authors will get paid fairly for their work. Libraries buy the book up front for a higher price (and a better binding). Kindle Unlimited offers the authors a variable percentage of a as-yet-undetermined-and-unannounced amount of money. 
While Amazon touts Kindle Unlimited at “Netflix For Books!” the reality is Netflix signed contracts with everyone whose work they offer so that actors, screen writers, best boys, and the rest of those people get paid for the shows and movies you watch. Amazon does not.
That means your favorite author isn’t being compensated for their time or work. If you love a book series and want to see the next one get published: buy the book or hit the library. Starving authors quit writing because they like eating. 

I couldn’t hit the reblog button fast enough.

So much reblog.

Bolded for reasons. Stop by your local library today and find out about all the FREE stuff you can get, physically and digitally. (oh, and also, we don’t track your purchases or store your history in our databases…if you like privacy - choose the library.

PSH! #diaryland

Of course I did, what do you people take me for? Most geeks of my generation did. Not that I use it anymore but I kinda miss it.

I miss mine as well. Everyonce and awhile I feel bad about abandoning the couple I had (One for real life, one for fanfic)

I’d kinda stopped using it much before I got onto tumblr though. I think it was that I had too many people on there and it was too hard to follow. Which is something I’m trying to manage here so the same doesn’t happen.

Wait, I thought it was with the general vaccines just in case… well I feel like a huge moron.

Okay, now I’m confused. What specifically are you worried about cause I was originally just posting about smallpox and not others and it sounds like you mean more than that so?
