wear your armor

whether it’s makeup, a band tshirt, your fandom pins, tattoos, jewelry, your favorite ripped pair of jeans, or something no one else can touch or see like your favorite song repeating like a mantra in your head, the sound of your own…

hoodiecap said: Cap visits a school assembly and they have him lead the pledge of allegiance but "under God" wasn't added until he went under the ice so he doesn't know that part so he doesn't say it and the next day all the headlines say "CAPTAIN AMERICA FORGETS GOD" and FoxNews freaks out.

additional tags from penguinsparade: #and let’s be real here #Steve grew up dirt poor during the Great Depression#and missed the Cold War #so he probably has what are today considered radical views on communism #i.e. ‘it’s not terrible’ and not synonymous with the antichrist#’a bunch of the people on my block were communists’ he says when Fox News asks for an interview #’they just wanted jobs down in the shipyard so they could eat and not lose a hand trying’ #Steve just rolls his eyes with a smile#every time Nat calls him comrade from then on

Can we all just take a moment to envision the Colbert Report section on COMRADE AMERICA and the subsequent interview where the first question is ‘so, why DO you hate America?’ and Stephen keeps accidentally propositioning Steve for the entire interview and ends up proposing to him.

#I don’t understand how anyone could hate america #says Stephen #I LOVE America #I love america’s great traditions #its love of freedom #its commitment to its ideals #its… lithe yet powerful physique #Steve is just sitting there with his lips twitching #trying not to crack up #gravely agreeing that there’s a lot about America to love

THIS IS A THING OF GREAT BEAUTY

I got unfollowed by two people who I previously liked very much because I dared criticize Joss Whedon and express reservations about how he’s going to handle Avengers 2.

If I unfollowed everyone who had a different opinion from mine, I wouldn’t be following anyone. Sorry to put a pinprick in your idea that Whedon is a wonderful progressive genius who is going to save us all.

Good riddance. There’s the door; don’t let it hit you in the ass on your way out.

I don’t understand this whole Joss Whedon worship thing.  I loved Buffy in her high school years, began to scratch my head when she went to college, watched Angel because, well, it was there and I loved Lorne and Christian Kane.  I loved Firefly until I started to think about it and certain language darts stuck in my skin, and other people said things that made me think (I try not to think about my junk entertainment, or pretty soon, I’ll have no entertainment left).  Dollhouse made me very unhappy.  Very.  He promised no fallback to prostitution, and he fell back to prostitution, also rape and battery.  I bailed.  I watched Dr. Horrible for the fellows, couldn’t help but noticed my beloved Felicia Day was wispy and fridged.

And yes, the broken women speech was wonderful.  Women also make great speeches about women all of the time.  We can save ourselves, thank you very much. 

Whedon is no longer a name that automatically puts my hand on the remote or in the theater.  And if people unfriend you because you’re honest about what you think, then they’ve kinda missed the point of knowing your own mind.  We aren’t supposed to be drones as feminists.  We’re not supposed to be pre-teens squealing over the newest hot guy.

A lot of Whedon’s work was very important and formative for me.  Nothing’s going to change that, just like nothing’s going to change the fact that he is problematic in many ways.  He killed the Final Girl.  A thousand Slashers couldn’t do it, and he did.

I am not a Whedon hate blog, but I will always question, and will never be able to fully trust.

The fact that he’s supposedly some kind of “feminist hero” and he failed to pass Bechdel in Avengers 1 is telling. Also, he isn’t very good at writing Steve.

Co-signing basically all of this. :/ Many things that Whedon does are excellent! And many… are a bare-pass feminism that we’re giving to him becase … well, a bare pass is possibly the highest standard we’ve got, when it comes to men? :/

"Human beings don't have a right to water."

Across the globe, Nestlé is pushing to privatize and control public water resources.

Nestlé’s Chairman of the Board, Peter Brabeck, has explained his philosophy with “The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. That means as a human being you should have a right to water. That’s an extreme solution.”

Since that quote has gotten widespread attention, Brabeck has backtracked, but his company has not. Around the world, Nestlé is bullying communities into giving up control of their water. It’s time we took a stand for public water sources.

Tell Nestlé that we have a right to water. Stop locking up our resources!

At the World Water Forum in 2000, Nestlé successfully lobbied to stop water from being declared a universal right — declaring open hunting season on our local water resources by the multinational corporations looking to control them. For Nestlé, this means billions of dollars in profits. For us, it means paying up to 2,000 percent more for drinking water because it comes from a plastic bottle.

Now, in countries around the world, Nestlé is promoting bottled water as a status symbol. As it pumps out fresh water at high volume, water tables lower and local wells become degraded. Safe water becomes a privilege only affordable for the wealthy.

In our story, clean water is a resource that should be available to all. It should be something we look after for the public good, to keep safe for generations, not something we pump out by billions of gallons to fuel short-term private profits. Nestlé thinks our opinion is “extreme”, but we have to make a stand for public resources. Please join us today in telling Nestlé that it’s not “extreme” to treat water like a public right.

Tell Nestlé to start treating water like a public right, not a source for private profits!

Nestlé is such an absolute garbage company run by garbage humans.

O.o… so, going back to boycotting Nestle, then? Right-o. Any fellow Australians got a rec for Milo-like substance that isn’t Nestle?

So someone said to me that you can never meet a good person off the Internet. I want to prove them wrong. Reblog if you’ve met someone from the Internet and they’ve turned out to be one of the best people to ever exist.
