    "The frightening thing is that, like most of their other campaigns against women, they see themselves as just warriors fighting for what’s right. This is primarily because they firmly believe that any woman who speaks up on women’s issues is completely disingenuous and only doing it for the purposes of self-promotion, and that any man who does is looking to get laid, because they actually cannot possibly imagine a scenario in which someone would genuinely give a shit about women.
     
    Members of this board, as well as “Men’s Rights Activists” in general, tend to go apoplectic at even the most mild implications that women might be human beings. For them, this is simply “not allowed” and must be punished swiftly and severely, as they appear to believe that feminism is the one obstacle in the way of all these pathetic neckbeards getting their pick of supermodel girlfriends who obey their every whim. The goal is to make it as uncomfortable to speak out about misogyny and women’s issues as possible, which is why they go to the wall in terms of harassing women like Emma Watson. At the end of the day, this is the crux of it. It would be sad if it weren’t so vile."

    You often hear about how mental illness is being overused or somehow romanticized in literature these days, and even though I can’t actually disagree with that, I don’t think it’s something wrong to write about.
    But I’ve seen many writers go through an amazing plot with well…

    If Stuntmen from the old movies don’t have your full respect then I just don’t know what to say to you

    l tried really hard not to reblog this

    Yeah, it is indeed really hard not to reblog a fucking thing.

    Can we all agree that the man in the first gif is the manliest man in the world?

    Are we just going to all silently acknowledge that the last guy is clearly dead and that we just saw him die. 

    HOLD UP FOR A SECOND

    ALL OF THESE GIFS ARE ONE MAN

    THE SINGULAR BUSTER KEATON

    WHILE FILMING THE GENERAL

    HE SNAPPED HIS NECK ON THE RAILROAD TIES AND WENT HOME AND ICED HIS BODY

    AND CAME BACK FOR WORK THE NEXT DAY

    HE ONCE GOT HIS HIP RIPPED OUT OF ITS SOCKET BY A MALFUNCTIONING ELEVATOR AND WAS DISAPPOINTED WITH HIMSELF FOR BEING INJURED

    HE ONCE HAD TO FALL 100 FEET DOWN A WATERFALL INTO A NET

    A STUNTMAN TESTED IT AND BROKE BOTH LEGS AND DISLOCATED HIS SHOULDER

    BUSTER DID THE STUNT ANYWAY AND LANDED WITHOUT A SCRATCH

    IN ‘THE HIGH DIVE’

    BUSTER DID A TRICK DIVE THROUGH A CARDBOARD DECK THAT WAS CAMOUFLAGED TO LOOK LIKE THE REAL DECK

    ONLY HE COULDN’T TELL FROM 100 FEET UP WHERE THE CARDBOARD STOPPED AND THE REAL DECK STARTED AND THERE WAS ONLY LIKE A THREE FOOT MARGIN FOR ERROR

    AND WHEN HE HESITATED A SUDDEN BREEZE LITERALLY KNOCKED HIM OFF THE DIVING BOARD AND HE HAD TO JUMP ANYWAY

    AND HE MISSED THE REAL DECK BY LESS THAN A FOOT BUT HE MADE IT

    IN THE SECOND GIF HE’S RECREATING SOMETHING THAT THE ACTUAL GENERAL PURSUERS HAD TO DO IN THE CIVIL WAR

    IF HE MISSES THAT TIE

    THE TRAIN WILL BE DERAILED AND HE WILL DIE IN THE EXPLOSION

    IN THE THIRD GIF AN ENTIRE HOUSE IS FALLING HE HAS ONE TAKE AND IF HE HAS NOT DONE THE CALCULATIONS CORRECTLY HE WILL BE CRUSHED

    HE HAS AN INCH-WIDE MARGIN ON EACH SIDE

    AND THE HOUSE LITERALLY BRUSHES HIS LEFT SHOULDER ON THE WAY DOWN

    YOU CAN SEE HIS LEFT ARM JUMP BECAUSE HE’S FLINCHING FROM THE PAIN

    THAT LAST GIF

    HE WAS SUPPOSED TO MAKE THAT JUMP

    HE WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO FALL AND THEY HADNT PLANNED FOR IT

    BUT HE SURVIVED

    BUSTER KEATON SURVIVED 100% OF THINGS THAT WOULD HAVE KILLED LESSER MEN INCLUDING WWI, TORNADOS, HOUSEFIRES, ALCOHOLISM, BROKEN NETS, CRUSHING DEPRESSION, THE DEPRESSION ITSELF, THE MCCARTHY WITCHHUNTS, THE END OF SILENT CINEMA, AND ABOUT 900 MORE OF THE STUNTS YOU SEE ABOVE

    BUSTER LIVED TO BE 70 YEARS OLD

    FATHERED LIKE FOUR KIDS AND EIGHT GRANDKIDS

    HE CAME OUT THE OTHER SIDE OF ALL THAT

    THINKING THAT LIFE WAS GOOD AND PEOPLE WERE WONDERFUL

    BUSTER KEATON IS NOT JUST A STUNTMAN

    HE IS A GODDAMN SAINT

    BUSTER KEATON’S PARENTS WERE PART OF A TRAVELING SHOW.

    THEY WERE ACROBATS.

    THEY TOOK BABY BUSTER UP HIGH IN THE AIR WITH THEM.

    THEY DROPPED HIM.

    LUCKILY SOMEONE WHO WAS STANDING UNDER THEM CAUGHT BABY BUSTER.

    THAT MAN WAS HARRY HOUDINI. 

    HARRY HOUDINI SAVED BUSTER KEATON’S LIFE.

    if you don’t think that’s the coolest shit you can get right out.

    I AM SO HAPPY TO SEE BUSTER KEATON LOVE ON MY DASH YOU GUYS HAVE NO IDEA
    WHERE IS THE BUSTER KEATON FANDOM SHOW ME THE WAY

    Ven, I’ll always remember the afternoon we spent watching The General and you realized the Buster Keaton solves all his problems WITH AN AXE.

    i started reading this thread and thought “what’s wrong with you mooks, that’s Buster Keaton not some rando Stunt Bro” and then everyone got it and there was some Buster Keaton gospel preaching and yeah, Buster was the shit, still is the shit and thank goodness there are people like that. (Also, he, you know, directed and wrote pretty much everything he did)

    I tried not to reblog this. 

    Nah, I didn’t try very hard.

A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

"cop breaks and enters with state approval, gets his ass shot"

brah………………. BRUV……………………..

this happened in Texas where it is perfectly legal to shoot and kill someone who is breaking into your home

Literally everybody knows that in Texas you can open fire on someone who comes onto your property without permission. What in the hell did they expect??

Where the NRA at? In the largest pro-gun state of Texass, those second amendment rights only apply if you’re white.

Oh no stand your ground for the homie right???? NO STAND YOUR GROUND FOR THE HOMIE RIGHT????!????!!!!

    Nicole: No. I think what happens is it turns into less a conversation about my blackness and more about relating to humanity, because that’s really what we’re trying to do. We’re just realizing that people are capable of doing it. We’re underestimating people because people said we weren’t viable.

    The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

    oh for fucks SAKE

    Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

    http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

    He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

    and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

    Exactly! This is evil.

    Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

    Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

    This dude was cosplaying.

    He was dressed up in a costume.

    Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

    Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

    Jesus Christ, American law enforcement. Get your fucking shit together.

    "Superman spent his childhood baling hay on a farm, he’s a working class hero and people don’t like that. Whereas Batman is a billionaire who sleeps until three in the afternoon, puts on a rubber suit and beats the shit out of poor people. Now that’s a wish fulfillment fantasy."

    forever reblog, especially with those tags

    (via whenyourenotsavingtheworld)

    Funny because I just argued about this point about Batman only a few short days  with a guy who, otherwise, is intelligent and well spoken.  Yet, this idea that Clark is an “othered” figure was totally lost on him.

    This is why it doesn’t just make me angry but actually makes me uncomfortable when dudebros get super excited about Batman beating the shit out of Superman.

    The last 3 live action adaptations of Superman—-all of which found huge audiences—-have particularly focused on this idea that Clark Kent grows up feeling othered.  (In one of those adapations, Clark Kent was actually played by an actor who is bi-racial and was abandoned by his father at a young age btw.)

    In several of these adapations, Clark Kent learning to accept his body and accept his heritage balanced with his intense love and identification as a human is not only a right of passage but the driving force of his identity and self-discovery.  The fact that a lot of this self-discovery also often includes a human female who accepts him fully and without fear or persecution for his “otherness” is vital and important.   Superman is not supposed to be “wish fufillment” for all of your white, male privileged bullshit, guys.  He’s also not supposed to be wish fufillment for those of you that believe that if you had Superman’s physical power and looks you would obviously use them to bang the hottest girl in the world AKA Wonder Woman.  He’s not supposed to be wish fufillment for your shallow, macho BULLSHIT.  He was wish fufillment for two Jewish men who longed to be accepted in a world torn with bigotry and oppression and longed for the love of a human working woman that worked one desk over.

    So when I see people talking about how “awesome” it would be for Batman to come into Superman’s movie and “beat the shit out of him”….I’m not just annoyed with you.  I’m not just angry at you.  You actually make me uncomfortable.   Your thoughts about fictional icons and myths make me uncomfortable.  I’m uncomfortable with you taking a unique and special male icon that actually is meant to challenge oppression and bogging him down with your god forsaken privilege.

    1. all of this is wonderful and good and ghostorballoons actually enlightened me to the fact that superman’s original basis was the strong man, who is pretty important in jewish american iconography so even taking away his “stupid underwear” as so many people have wanted to do for so long (and succeeded) is actually an effort to remove superman from his roots as a jewish figure.

    2. who played superman that was biracial? 

    (via alienswithankhs)

    Dean Cain.  His background looks mostly flavors of White, but his paternal grandfather is Japanese.  He was born in 1966 as Dean George Tanaka, but his wikipedia page says his mother married film director Christopher Cain in 1969, so… (Also Christopher Cain adopted Dean and his brother)

    Also Superman himself is adopted and an illegal alien.  Let’s not forget that.  He accepts both his birth family and his adopted family as family and doesn’t make one family more important or “real” than the other.  He has both parents and they love each other and their son very much.  It’s not the typical adoption story that we tell, where the birth family is called the “real parents” and either the child or the adopted family is vilified.
