[W]e live in a sexually liberal society, not a liberated one. A truly liberated society is one where sex is value-neutral and not having sex is just as acceptable as having a lot of it.
The fact that asexuals are considered weird, sick, abnormal, mentally ill, repressed, etc is a bold indicator that we are not living in a sexually liberated society but in a liberalized one.
I saw this new Pantene ad and I almost cried. For the Philippines, this is something new. Baby steps into progress. Especially that dedicated-selfish one, which is especially rampant in this country, which stills believe that men work, women stay at home. This ad shows exactly how unfair the treatment of women is. Believe it or not, some people actually think the Philippines is “progressive” and matriarchal, when in fact, it operates under subtle benevolent sexism.
Pantene itself, as a corporation, isn’t excused with its history of sexism, but I see this ad as positive.
"You can’t ship them they’re not gay!"
"You can’t ship them their age difference is too much!"
"You can’t ship them they don’t even like ea…."
Actually that’s either a noun acting as a verb (unlikely) or a verb which looks like the plural pronoun of knife because it has an S on the end, but isn’t, because its construction is actually “was knifed”/is knifed/to knife/will be knifed” etc. English is a weird language.
#syntactician hat on
"(to) knife" is a verb. English is full of noun-verb pairs like this: cut, look, knot, mop, spoon, etc. etc. It conjugates like a normal verb:
Present: She knifes people all the time.
Past: She knifed him.
Progressive: She is/was knifing someone.
Perfect: She has/had knifed someone.
Passive: He was knifed (by someone).
The first gif above refers to variation in whether people still voice final ‘f’ in certain plurals. So “leaf~leaves” becomes “leaf~leafs” for some people — like the hockey team. The plural of “Maple Leafs” actually shows that this voicing applies only to specific words in English, and once you turn one of those words into a name, the rule (if you have it) no longer applies.
Hello friends! I run an Etsy shop called Bright Strange Things where I sell a bunch of stuff, including Teen Wolf inspired jewelry stylings. Since it’s gift season, I thought I’d give you guys some presents: a 10% discount, and a giveaway for a $25 gift certificate!
Through December 17th, enter the coupon code FULLCOLDMOON at checkout, and you’ll get 10% off your total order of anything from my shop. Why? Because you’re awesome.
THE GIVEAWAY PRIZE
The winner of this giveaway will get a $25 discount code for my Etsy shop, which considering my prices will probably score you more than one item. Awwwww yiiissssss. You’ll have to pay for shipping when you order, so please bear that in mind. The code will be good for any merch in my shop, not just the Teen Wolf stuff, and only works in my specific shop, not all of Etsy.
THE GIVEAWAY RULES
- Both likes and reblogs count as an entry, so you can get two entries. A winner will be chosen using a random number generator. No giveaway blogs, and please only enter from one blog.
- You can enter from anywhere.
- You must have your askbox open so I can contact you if you win.
- Please be aware that a lot of my stock is somewhat limited edition… I may only make a handful of any one item and not be able to acquire the exact same supplies to make more. So you’ll only be able to order from whatever I have in the shop when you order. You can use your $25 toward a custom order, but only if it’s a custom order I can actually do. :D
- You don’t have to be following me, but if you are you’ll an extra bonus with your order. :)
Contest ends DECEMBER 17th, the night of the full moon, so you’ll have plenty of time to order some swag before you go for your naked moonlight werewolf run.
If you have any questions, feel free to drop me an ask.
I have a mistletoe necklace from brightstrangethings shop and it’s lovely!
Mine is Hawkeye. I’m dead, unless I can convince him to recruit me to SHIELD.
LOL, Same here. And he has an arrow aimed RIGHT at me, from what looks like about 10 feet away.
ha. haha. I have Clint and Coulson. I’m doomed. DOOMED.
Coulson and Fury…
It’s been nice knowing you guys.
Mine is Commander Shepard. I’m going to plead for my life & promise never to be seen again, she might let me live
HA! Mine is Tony. So def. fucked, but probably not in the intent of the meme. :)
I always knew seagulls had it in for me. D:
zooey deschanel gets stuck in lucy liu’s dress
This is the least surprising photo I’ve ever seen.
Is it wrong that I love how Lucy Liu is like ~this is not my problem~ ~I am a cyborg princess and this is beneath me~
WHERE IS THE FIC. GIVE IT TO ME. GIVE ME THE FIC.
I mean, I love this moment?
But man, I am not Lucy Liu in this situation. And I’m feeling increasingly that the fact that I don’t look at this photograph and think “all hail Lucy Liu” but rather, “oh dear, Zooey, that is totally what I would do” is why I’m feeling like maybe I don’t belong in fandom, at least as it’s spoken about on tumblr.
Eh, I think most of us would like to be Lucy Liu here, or admire and are in awe of Lucy Liu for being Lucy Liu, but we’re all Zooeys really. Some of us just manage to hide it from the other side of the computer box.

Welcome to Night Vale.
I’ve been working on this for a while. How many Eternal Scout badges and eyes can you find? How many angels? Where are Carlos and intern Dana?
Have fun in Night Vale.
