You’ll see that her fears and resistance to Hook in certain ways are based around what I can’t talk about.
As your girlfriend, I will make it my duty to turn you on at the most inappropriate of times.
dear teen wolf and teen wolf actors and teen wolf fandom,
please please please please please stop referring to stiles as a “spaz”.
i’m hardly the authority on ableism, but i wince every time someone says it in canon, i winced when my fave (haley webb) tossed it down in her bitecon panel, and i wince every time someone gifs or quotes that “hyperactive spaz” comment of derek’s. it’s a slur. i know it’s not a huge deal in the scheme of things, but even without hurtful intention, normalizing slurs can be really damaging, and it’s such a little change to make! please phase it out of your vocabulary and stop reblogging it.
reblogging myself because derek used it about stiles aGAIN so it’s in a billion sterek gifsets this week. like, what the fuck, guys, we’re better than this, come on.
Dissecting a character to fit a heteronormative box is sloppy and irresponsible. Bisexuals deserve to be represented in media too — not erased or straight-washed. If NBC can’t handle portraying a bisexual male character, then perhaps the network shouldn’t take on John Constantine.
Sexuality is always a part of a character — however minimal — but some sort of romantic or sexual relationship is usually a significant plot point in superhero stories. A bisexual male superhero would disrupt the hetero male template of, “hero saves damsel in distress” that we see consistently in iconic stories like Superman, Spiderman, and Captain America. But it’s 2014, and sometimes men need saving too.
There’s something particularly elusive about bisexual male characters. There is a deeply ingrained misconception that a man can’t be romantically involved with another man and still be interested in women as well. It’s centered on the idea that masculinity requires a wanting, and “getting” of women, and not men. But the depiction of Constantine in Hellblazer proves that is a false assumption.

straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bys, pretty much anywhere.
the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments
is that you hobby lobby
Am I the only one that’s a just a tiny bit pissed off that this is still an issue?
The Original Series wasn’t even in the general VICINITY of fucking around yo

When the Melissa McCarthy led Tammy came out, it made less than a lot of analysts predictions and lead to a lot of disappointed rumbling. This is surprising because the film made a lot of money at the domestic box office, relative to its budget (it cost $20 million to make, and took in a little more than that in just its opening weekend.)
So why were people so disappointed? Probably because Melissa McCarthy’s films have a history of ridiculously overperforming. (The Heat, Bridesmaids, Identity Thief). For Melissa McCarthy, incredible return on investment is the norm.
When I examined the 100 highest performing films in 2013 and 2012, as well as films released so far in 2014, a pretty clear pattern emerged: female-led films leave male-led films in the dust, once you pay attention to their production budget. Melissa McCarthy is just an extreme example of this trend. I’ve included highlights from my analysis under the read more.
TLDR; Looking at box office take relative to production budget, female-led movies have overperformed for the past three years.
