Consent: A Short Story

Person #1: Hey can I touch you there?

Person #2: No.

Person #1: Okay. <p>It isn't complicated. Sam Pepper should be prosecuted for what he did.</p>

Hi, and thank you so much!!

That’s a great question, and I get lots of Irene asks, so I’m just going to go for it here…

Irene Adler: The Woman, The Myth, The Meta

Let’s start with A Scandal in Bohemia. Often, when writers set out to create another Sherlock Holmes adaptation, they decide to use Irene Adler as his love interest, despite the fact that she only actually appears in one canonical story. Why? Because she’s beautiful and clever. So naturally canon-Sherlock was in love with her.

Of course, anyone who actually bothered reading the story knows that isn’t the case at all. 

Canon Sherlock Holmes is intrigued by Irene. She’s highly intelligent and she outsmarts him. He keeps a photograph of her as a souvenir once they part ways as a reminder of the woman who beat him. 

If I had to make a list of guesses to Canon Sherlock Holmes’s sexual orientation, “straight” wouldn’t even crack the top five. So it irks me to no end that people assume his interest in Irene must be sexual. God forbid he really is just impressed with her mind. Who cares how powerful her brains are?? Look at her boobs, for chrissake!

There was no romance between them in the canon story. Period. 

I imagine Moffat and Gatiss were beside themselves with glee when they wrote this episode. They made it through the first season loading all three shows with crazy homoerotic subtext, setting up the beginning of their slow build to Johnlock, reading reviews and criticism that pointed out All The Gay while at the same time heralding it a fine bromance, with a minority of fans crying “queerbait.” Queerbaiting? the writers thought. No no no. Quite the opposite, dears. Just you wait.

Enter: The Woman.

the female body is hardcore as fuck. 

Yes is it.

so is the male body

OP is praising the fact that women hold a fucking infant in their belly the size of a ribcage, get the fuck over yourself for 3.5 seconds.

*~*~follow for more fragile male ego~*~*

The male body is more susceptible to hereditary diseases because of their lack of a second X chromosome. Their testosterone production ages them faster and causes them to die sooner. Their center of gravity is higher because of their tiny little hips and overgrown shoulders, making them easier to topple. Their gonads are placed outside of the body, in a very vulnerable position, because they do not function properly if they get a little bit warmer than usual. They have non-functional nipples, but still enough breast tissue to get cancer.The male body is not hardcore. The male body is to the female body what a shoddy, unstable mod is to a well-estabilished piece of software. Sit the fuck down. And try to not crush your fragile pathetic outside gonads when you do it.

Fandom Public Service Announcement: 
In addition to running Archive of Our Own and the Transformative Works and Cultures academic journal, the Organization for Transformative Works also runs Fanlore, a fandom-oriented wiki dedicated to hosting information about fan activities, fannish vocabulary, and the histories of fan communities.
On July 5 2014, Fanlore passed its most recent goal of reaching 30,000 articles — which is awesome! But as with any wiki that relies on user interest for the creation and maintenance of pages, there are still some pretty noticeable gaps.
Some of the most prominent authors and pairings in popular fandoms have almost nothing on their pages — or, in many cases, have no pages at all. (As of September 21 2014 the Steve/Bucky page barely has anything on it, and Thorin Oakenshield — one of the main characters in The Hobbit books and movies — doesn’t even have a character page.)

The Fanlore Challenge:
To help fill these gaps, I propose a simple three-step solution.
Create an account with Fanlore. 
Think of 5 things that you consider important to YOUR fandom experience and that you think other people should know about. (Your favourite pairings, characters, fanfic authors, fanartists, remarkable fanworks — whatever makes you think “this person/thing deserves to be recognized.”)
Go contribute to the Fanlore pages for those 5 things.

That’s all it takes! Saying “X Author is a significant author in Y fandom” with a link to their AO3 page or adding the links to a few Notable Works for a particular pairing is more than enough to qualify. Know of an awesome rec list for that pairing? Add a link. Remember a meme that sprung up about a certain character? Throw that in too. It doesn’t have to be much.
And if you have the time and energy to really flesh out those 5 pages? Even better. 
Providing a balanced and well-rounded fandom wiki is pretty much impossible for one person to do. But if everyone who sees this post makes just 5 constructive edits, we can all work towards making Fanlore into an even better resource and repository for all of us to use. 

Happy editing!

FUCK I JUST WOKE UP MY ENTIRE HOUSE

harrison ford deserves every single oscar for this one scene

I’m gonna go ahead and think that his expression in the last second is down to him being a multi-amorous, pansexual who now has the possibility of having a threesome with opposite gender twins.

Perfectly worded.

This is Alexandrite, it’s also called “emerald by day, ruby by night”
It changes colour based on whether the light source is from the sun or from a candle.
It does this because Alexandrite strongly absorbs yellow light due to chromium ions in its crystal structure, leaving the other colours behind. Light from the Sun emits all colours, but it peaks in the green, and our eyes are most sensitive to green, so in Sunlight Alexandrite is green.
Incandescent lights are things like candles and filament light bulbs. They also emit all colours of light, but they peak far, far into the red, so there’s not nearly as much green or blue, so under those, Alexandrite is red. 
Gemstones are awesome.

Languages do not die. They don’t just grow old, weary and ready to embrace the coldness of death. They are killed, murdered by policies, intergenerational traumas, and external as well as internalised oppression all stemming from another language community which seeks to subdue it by force, either seen or unseen by the very language community being ushered towards the end of its existence.

"Most mass murderers do not go from zero to 60. Rodger made escalating assaults on women (splashing coffee on them, attempting to shove them off a ledge) before his killing spree. Both Cho and Justin-Jinich’s murderer harassed women before they killed anyone. When such acts go unnoticed and unpunished — because we expect men to harass women, and it’s not outrageous or even noteworthy when they do — they can become stepping-stones to more conspicuous and less socially acceptable acts of violence."

Interesting to note that while a history of animal cruelty is widely accepted to be a link with becoming a serial killer, the link between cruelty towards women and killing women is still up for debate. If a guy abuses a cat and then shoots women we say "we should have seen it coming that guy was nuts", but if abuses women and then shoots women we say "we had no way of seeing it coming that guy was a perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human
