I have a massive fear that no one actually likes me, rather everyone is just politely tolerating me hoping I leave them alone

Sep 1

It’s been less than a month since Dov Charney was ousted as American Apparel’s CEO after numerous accusations of sexual harassment, and now the company has rehired him as a paid “strategic consultant” – and will let him keep his huge salary. It’s also been less than a month since that long magazine profile reminded everyone that photographer Terry Richardson has been accused of multiple sexual assaults (two settled), and he’s still partnering with Playboy magazine on a special 100-page issue – shot entirely by him.

Everyone is always pretty concerned that men accused of sexual misconduct will have their lives ruined, but it looks like these guys aren’t just avoiding the many consequences of those accusations – they’re actually flourishing!

Why is it – in a culture purporting to take allegations of sexual assault and harassment seriously – that victims suffer more social punishment than their accused attackers?

If you ever need to someone to talk to, to vent, or just comfort in the form of a hug (even if it’s just a GIF-hug), my ask is always open

okay
today i wore a v-neck to school, something that is totally normal for 99% of the girls there, one of the girls in my french class was wearing one similar to mine in fact.
but my french teacher came up to me and told me that i was out of dress code and that i was asking for something to happen to me.
and all day long i had to slap guys who found it perfectly okay to grab them.
im a 32DDD, 5’1, and 115 pounds. due to this im known around the school as the walking boobs, the girl who grew in other places, and BITS. I constantly get called a whore and a tease. 
Girls are always accusing their boyfriends of sleeping with me.
and there have been times when i have had to tell teachers that my eyes are up here.
i grew boobs in the eighth grade, i was a DD then, and i cant tell you how many fights i got into with guys who thought it was alright to stick their faces in them. 
the point of all of this is that its bullshit. 
i should be able to wear a v neck to school without worrying about who is going to grab my boobs next, or who is going to throw a gum wrapper in them, or what girls are going to say next.

Fuck that shit! I would report any teacher that needs to be reminded not to stare at your chest. That is not okay in any sense.
Also, I’d say screw slut-shaming, but this isn’t even a matter of dressing how one wants, but a matter of a woman’s natural state being the reason that men think it’s okay to sexual harass or assault her.

Hey, this is something that happens to me as an adult, on a daily basis.

Your work has been a gift to mankind. You shaped a century. And I need you to do it one more time. Society is at a tipping point, between order and chaos. Tomorrow morning we’re gonna give it a push. But if you don’t do your part, I can’t do mine. And HYDRA can’t give the world the freedom it deserves.

headcanon: Bucky Barnes + Bucky Bears

actualmenacebuckybarnes:

Bucky doesn’t see the big fuss, really. They didn’t even get the costume right. As if he’d wear little sky-blue booty shorts in war with tights and thigh-high boots. 

"I think they’re cute," Steve says, smiling as he picked one off of the stand. 

"Don’t buy that." Bucky says, snatching it out of his hand. Steve just picks up another one. 

"You used to collect Captain America comic books back in the day," Steve points out. 

"That’s different." Bucky sniffs. "Those were a riot. This is character assassination.” 

Steve laughs. “Maybe if we gave him a little bottle of bourbon and a tiny sniper rifle?” 

He finds one on Natasha’s bed. 

"I can explain." She says, walking in to find him staring at it. He turns to look at her and she grins. "Actually, there’s nothing to explain. I’ve just always wanted to say that." 

"I feel like you’re stepping out on me," Bucky says, picking up the bear. It even smells like Natasha, like it had been snuggled against her neck night after night while Bucky was mucking through the swamps of Panatal. He was jealous. 

"That’s such an adorable accusation I’m not even going to get angry at you," Natasha says, plugging in her hair straightener and fixing her makeup in the mirror as it heats up. 

Bucky squeezes the bear as hard as he can, making its little glass eyes bug out of the domino mask. 

"Uh huh," Sam says unsympathetically, slurping on his three berry smoothie. "Yeah talk to me when Falcon Bear gets so popular that Natasha cuddles one to sleep every night. Then I’ll cry with you." 

"That would be weird, though." Bucky says, stirring his own strawberry banana smoothie. "A bear with wings?"

"A Falcon bear." 

"But it would be a bear, but also a bird?"

"No, it would be a bear in a Falcon suit-" Sam smacked Bucky on the arm as Bucky started cracking up.

 For Christmas, Bucky buys a plain bear and digs out an old leather jacket of his that had gotten torn up on a mission. Painstakingly, he sews a little leather Falcon harness, complete with a full set of wings painted silver. And little goggles to boot.

It looks so good that he makes a little Black Widow bear too, choosing a bear with reddish-colored fur and scouring the internet for weeks to find an hourglass charm he can make into the belt buckle. 

Captain America already had a bear, though it had never attained the popularity of Bucky Bear. So Bucky makes a Steve bear. Complete with a gingham shirt tucked into khaki pants, and an artfully rumpled trench coat. In one paw it held a falsified army recruitment form. 

"Wow, that’s so thoughtful," Clint says, when he saw them. "Way to blow all of us out of the water forever, you douchebag." 

"Oh these aren’t gifts," Bucky says lightly, packing them in boxes. "These are revenge.

Falcon, Black Widow and preserum Steve Rogers bears hit the stores a month before Christmas, and quickly become the best selling toys of 2014, quickly outstripping the classic Bucky Bear, who most modern children could no longer associate with The Avengers. 

"Really?" Steve demands, "A falsified army recruitment form?" 

"I think it’s cute," Bucky laughs, eyeing the shelves and shelves of bears. "A riot.”

  • stop pitting mary jane watson against gwen stacy
  • stop pitting natasha romanoff against bobbi morse
  • stop pitting jane foster against sif

support the ladies of marvel, and stop trying to tear them down because so-and-so was a better girlfriend to whomever.  recognize them as the individual, kickass women they are.  not the men they’re connected with.

Stop saying sorry. Say thank you instead. When you say, “sorry for being a jerk” the other person is forced to either call you a jerk or say it wasnt a big deal. Instead, say “thank you for being so patient with me” so the other person has a reason to say they love you.

- I saw this gem on Reddit tonight.  It was posted under a topic of “What ‘little’ things you can do to improve your relationship with your significant other.”  I’m definitely taking this piece of advice with me into my next relationship. (via blakebaggott)
