women are more likely than men to develop a mental illness but you rarely hear about women going on shooting sprees because men won’t be with us or love us or fuck us, bottom line, if you’re willing to relate mental illness and mass murder while also refusing to relate misogyny to women dying at the hands of men, then bye bye no time for you

Give me a break.
Considering that on the left we have a drawing created by a male comic book artist, while on the right we have a black woman reclaiming her sexuality…
Yeah, there’s a big difference here.
When posting these #photoshop comparisons, there are inevitably multiple comments along the lines of “They look better without photoshop, anyway!” or “But they looked just fine!” This is missing the point:
Such comments show that these women are still being judged based on their appearance - Do not continue the trend of prioritizing their body’s aesthetic appeal instead of respecting their actual worth as people or their right to bodily autonomy.
This isn’t about you and what you like - Even if the Before photo was somehow disgusting to your eyes, that version is still more important and inherently “better” than the manipulated after shot. Trying to legitimize an image by saying “I like this body better” is a way of putting emphasis on how someone looks while also implying that your personal preferences are relevant to the conversation. But the thing is: They aren’t. These bodies are valid and valuable simply because they belong to these women. Whether or not you’re attracted to them is entirely irrelevant, so stop judging them according to such standards.
All images on the left were found in tumblr’s #fitspo tag while all images on the right are the originals. Before reblogging or sharing fitspo, please consciously ask yourself: Is my motivation and inspiration being derived from how much I respect this person, or by how much I’m attracted to them? Are you more interested in the body or the person? And most importantly: Did this person consent to having their photo spread online in this manner? If you don’t know and if you aren’t willing to look up this information, then it would be best not to reblog.
When Utah residents saw 22-year-old Darrien Hunt carrying a toy sword, they called police who shot and killed him. But when 22-year-old Joseph Kelley carried an assault rifle to a JC Penney store in Utah, he walked out without a scratch on his body. They were both the same age. Both in the same state. But only one was considered “suspicious.” And you still believe America is color blind?
The guy had a blunt sword, part of a costume. Was leaving a cos-play event.
Utah is horrible.
America is horrible.
isn’t it cool how some phobias are unquestioned and considered “normal”, like fear of heights or spiders, but mention that you have social anxiety or a fear of driving and people immediately jump to “why? what’s so scary about that? that makes no sense??????” and by it’s cool i mean it’s really fucked up because all phobias are irrational it doesn’t need an explaination that’s what makes it a pHOBIA
Actors/writers praising Sophie and Sansa
"I really like Sansa in the books. I have no objections to her at all. I think she’s misguided in a lot of ways, but she’s by no means in any way lesser than any of the other children. I think she does some brilliant things in the books."
"You know who I really like and is turning into a really interesting character: Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner). She quite often is typecast as this little weepy girl, and what Sophie brings to that role is great."
"I think the very very interesting storyline is Sansa’s. Whereas Sansa’s always been the down beaten one, the one who’s had a really hard time, she starts fighting back which is really interesting. And I think Sophie Turner’s an incredible young actress."
"I’m just lucky enough to work with people like Sophie Turner, who is just, I think, one of my favourite actors"
”Sophie’s the best! I had so much fun working with her.”
"I have this sincere love and respect for this wonderful blossoming that’s happening in young Sophie as an actress"
"I remember this day and I remember the way Sophie, on her own, completely naturally cried on and off for hours. It was the most beautiful, natural performance. I know teenagers, they have hormones going around, but it was natural tears the entire time. She was beautiful"
"It was really good this season to join the family proper, you know? Really get in there and… [smiles at Sophie] …hang out with you.”
"She’s like every 17-year-old girl, freaking out for Justin Bieber. [Laughs] She makes jokes of my English. She keeps telling me wrong words in English, and I believe her, so I will use these words, and in the end, she’ll start to laugh at me. “These are the wrong English words. I was just making fun of you.” That’s really mean! But that’s Sophie. I love her."
"I love Sophie! I feel like a mother—she’s growing so fast! She’s so tall, too! She was a kid in the first season, and now she’s a young woman, even more beautiful. I feel like I have to take care of her in private life. I love her.""Last season, she had a really difficult scene where she had to cry as she watched Littlefinger’s ship leave without her. It was such a heartbreaking scene, and she did it so well—she couldn’t stop crying! She’s a really good actress.""I got to see a lot of great actors — young actors — children, like Sophie (Turner). Seeing her grow up was very special."
“One of my favourite scenes, actually, and Sophie really came into her own and is so wonderful in it, is the scene with Littlefinger, it’s the ‘Trial of Littlefinger’ as we called it. That scene is brilliant, and she’s incredible, they all are, but that’s the beginning of a big storyline and especially with Sophie pulling off the shell game of the trial.”
"Now I think Sansa gets a bad rap. I’m gonna— I’m gonna address some critics of Sansa. She is one of my favorite characters, and I have great affection for her as a character. […] I think Sansa— she’s been told that the world is a certain way, and through the course of this season and indeed the series finds out that it’s not. And some people find her behavior annoying and selfish, but she’s a kid—she’s a teenage girl, you know. I think in many ways some of the stuff she does in the later episodes are every bit as heroic as the things that Arya does. She just has to play a different game than Arya.”
"If you had to pick one character to give a hug, who would it be? I hemmed and hawed and went with Sansa"
"Sansa has been a piece that other people have moved about the board to achieve their own goals - using her, discarding her, using her for a different purpose. You’re going to marry Joffrey - no, you’re going to marry Loras. You’re going to marry Tyrion. She’s beginning to at least try to understand how she can play the game of thrones and be not a piece but a player - with her own goals, and moving other pieces around. And she’s not a warrior like Robb, Jon… she’s not even a wild child like Arya, she can’t fight with swords, but she has her wits"
"[Who’s your favourite character] Tyrion, because he’s the wittiest. But I like them all. I like Arya, Dany and Sansa […]"
