meeeehhh i’m wary of cis men who reblog loads of feminist stuff because i just kind of think “do you really believe this stuff or do you just want girls to like you”
support feminism but you’re kind of preaching to the choir here
if you wanna help go talk to guys who aren’t educated on this stuff you know
Well, if we know the characters, we’re going to carry right on assuming they’re smoking hot. If the AU makes the hottie confirmation necessary for tone - yeah, rejigger. Otherwise don’t worry about it imo.
It’s kinda like… Character A thinks that Charact B is a hottie, so it feels like Character A should be conscious of their hotness from the get-go? I think I just need a quick line or something early on so people know that, yup, there’s that kind of attraction going.
Clark Gregg is back around the 45 minute mark. He is sitting in a black car, wearing a black beanie and turtle-neck, staking out the Poppers.
DUDE. YOU ARE TOO CONFIDENT. THIS WILL NOT END WELL.
Hey! So, Coming Out Day is coming up soon (Oct. 11) and I just want to post a very stern reminder to NOT out anyone without their explicit permission.
Do NOT out anyone.
Also, keep in mind that if you are not ready, or are not in a safe place to come out, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO.
Seriously, I know there’s pressure there but do it in your own time when you’re safe and you’re ready.
DON’T PRESSURE ANYONE TO COME OUT NO MATTER WHAT DAY IT IS!
Yesssss. And Clint would get grumpy, like, “Why aren’t you saying anything about HIM showing all that flesh?”
"Because Sam actually looks classy when he does it."
"Oh, sure, you’re on first name basis with all the classy dudes."
"Mmhmm." And then Phil just peels away from Clint and goes and hangs out with with Sam and Steve in their stunning dresses.

According to a recent study conducted by Harvard University, it is now literally impossible for a student to write an essay pertaining to the themes or symbolism in the popular F. Scott Fitzgerald novel The Great Gatsby without it technically being considered plagiarism.
"I’ve had a number of instances where students would ‘accidentally’ plagiarize another piece of work," says Eugene Smith, an English professor. "Sometimes what they write just happens to be almost identical to what someone else wrote. This was less of a problem earlier in the century, but lately… every essay seems identical to one I’ve already read before."
The study claims that, due to the sheer quantity of papers written on The Great Gatsby, there are “virtually no formations of words pertaining to symbolism and/or theme in The Great Gatsby that have not already been written at least once. Henceforth, any organization of words about the aforementioned novel will, inevitably, bare enough resemblance to at least one, but probably many more, previous writings on the subject, and would therefore technically be considered plagiarism. It’s now linguistically impossible to say anything about The Great Gatsby that has not already been said multiple times, almost verbatim, no matter what.”
One English teacher, who wished to remain anonymous, said that he gave up entering students’ essays into plagiarism detecting programs, as they always showed up multiple results, dating back for decades, even when no conscious plagiarism was performed.
Teachers are currently debating whether to finally remove The Great Gatsby from the curriculum, as there is now “literally nothing left to say about it.”
If a woman writes to a sex advice column and says “My boyfriend is pressuring me to have anal sex but I don’t want to” and the advise columnists answer is “It shouldn’t be painful if you do X, Y, Z” instead of “Dump any asshole who tries to pressure you into having sex” then the person giving that advice is perpetuating rape culture.
