Body comparative #44 (1,2)

When I do charity events dressed as Batgirl, all the children of color are absolutely overjoyed. They literally embrace me and I can see them realize that their own race and skin color is not a hindrance to their creativity, as everything they see and experience has been telling them ever since they were old enough to process media.
The white children are hesitant and some attempt to quiz me or insist that I’m not ‘right’ or ‘real’. They are repeating what they have been told and what they have seen all their lives. I explain that Batman believes that anyone can be a hero if they are a good person and work hard, no matter what they look like. So of course Batgirl and Robin can be Black or Chinese or Spanish or anything, because that doesn’t change who they are.
The kids accept this and by the end of the event we’re all holding hands and talking about video games. I think representation is more important than ‘accuracy’ and I won’t be involved with an organization that doesn’t agree with that.

Jay Justice, on whether costumers who dress for charity events should only portray characters ‘accurately’ or not, with implications that ‘accuracy’ means that a non white person should limit themselves to canonical characters of color. (via msjayjustice)

Jay Justice is more Batgirl than anyone I know.

ohhhhh look at me i’m a straight teenage boy and i feel the need to jump and touch the doorframe every time I walk through it


SOMETIMES I DO THIS??? But only in schools and universities?? And mostly like ‘I CAN DO THIS, LOOK, HEIGHT AND WINGSPAN’ but mostly also -smack!- I DON’T UNDERSTAND




my life got about a thousand times better once i stopped censoring myself

and by censoring i don’t mean i suddenly embraced indiscriminate swearing; i mean i stopped trying to sugarcoat my past or my feelings; i stopped lying by omission; i stopped having guilty pleasures; i began unabashedly enjoying whatever i liked; i became very honest; i cut out of my life poisonous people and negative ideals, and i am so, so much happier for it


The residual momentum from blasting the door knocked them down the hall three feet.

“It wasn’t me! It was the science!”

ISWM update!

i don’t get why people believe feminists hate men

i don’t get why a movement that is for women is so misunderstood to the point where it’s still about men

She is definitely one of my favorite actresses. She looks so adorable yet like she could kill anyone at any point. :p

Fan: So I was just wondering, this is specifically about Cosima and Felix and, like, queer representation in the media. You kind of already got some positive feedback about Cosima, but I’m wondering, like, what other type of feedback you got and if the queer community’s something you keep in mind when creating those characters.

JG: Yeah, um, actually that’s a really interesting question because, from the LGBT community, the reaction to Felix was brilliant. Um, I did receive a couple of little things from the straight community, actually. Where they felt he was a bit of an ugly stereotype. And he—um, he was a bit of a cliche, over the top, blah blah blah…and my response to that has always been this…

JG: So, I feel that Felix…[CROWD BEGINS CLAPPING] I-I just don’t know when, as a society, in television and film it sort of only became okay to represent gay people in, like, the traditional sense. Where they have a great job and well-adjusted parents and maybe a surrogate, or adopted, child. Like, when was that the only way you could represent gay people…
