As it is Columbus Day I have decided to finally go into that house I like and declare it as mine. Sure, people live there, but I really want this house, you guys.

A punk stops during a gay pride parade to allow a mesmerized child to touch his jacket spikes.

I lost control about reblogging this picture. 

and this is the perfect “fuck you” to people who stereotype people like this. 

literally one of my favourite pictures ever

nothing more punk than letting small children touch your clothes spikes or hair spikes

I want to marry this man.

I’ve never reblogged something so fast

Okay, but this movie wins the award for Best Use of Manpain, tho.

In any other movie, Raleigh would’ve spent 90 minutes being like MY PAIN IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR STUPID WAR, and instead, he snaps back into action as soon as he meets Mako. That’s awesome. But what floors me is that he uses his own grief to help Mako survive hers. He knows how awful it is to lose your family. He knows what she’s going through. And instead of whining or thinking his pain makes him entitled to opt out of his responsibilities, he empathizes with Mako, supports her, and encourages her.

Raleigh’s greatest strength is his compassion. And that’s the kind of male hero I’d like to see on my screen, please.

Plus, like, a bazillion more movies about Mako Mori.

I have a friend who thinks Pacific Rim is the best expression of true, non-toxic, GOOD masculinity in recent times.

All agreement.

Let’s talk about Stacker Pentecost in light of this, though. Because we learn, towards the end of the movie, that the day he met Mako is the day he lost his partner. He gets out of that jaeger after having piloted it alone, after having his body burned for hours by toxic radiation, after losing the person he was mentally linked to (family? partner? friend?) and what does he do? He adopts a young girl, and more than that, he promises her her right to revenge if that’s what she wants. Tries his best to keep her safe but gives her the tools and skills and support and eventually permission to fight. Respects her enough to rely on her. Gives her a home and family and meaningful, important vocation during the goddamn apocalypse. Let’s talk about the kind of masculinity that uplifts others that completely. That takes all kinds of pain and stands up in the face of it because of the people who need to see him still standing. That has purpose and drive and passion but above all understands other people and believes in them.

Stacker fucking Pentecost everybody.

BREAKING: I wish I were making this up, but sadly I’m not. Police currently in Ferguson, MO have a sniper on the roof of one of the buildings near the Ferguson October protesters. Wow.

Reblog if you dont shave your legs everyday.

I just want everyone to see how unrealistic some expectations are.

Nope.  But then, I don’t wear shorts anymore, either.  Too many people shouting at me in public about my weight and how ugly I am.

What, you thought it only happened to youngsters?  I was forty when I stopped.  I could afford cotton slacks in the summer.

Every couple days at MOST, and that’s only when it’s hot enough to wear shorts.

And I’m trying to find the confidence to stop, because if anyone thinks my bare hairy legs are “gross,” that’s their problem.

Seriously. Because I have an idea for one, and I want to see whether I can make it work. I don’t know if I can find an artist who’d be interested in collaborating on it, but if I can, I…

Am I the only one who finds gendered pronouns really weird?

Not just you. All of Finland, for example. XD
