    Hmm… I think that it is that we really need a Wolfrider to die soon? The Wolfrider deaths we have had so far is Woodlock, One-Eye, Rainsong and Wing, and of these only One-Eye’s death was one we saw. Yes, Rayek whisking off the palace into the future did mean that at one point someone would die. But it has been what, more than thousand of years since someone who was a Wolfrider died? So far we have had, chronologically Skot (Go-Back), Zhantee (Sun Villager), Surge (Wavedancer), Ruffle (Sun Villager) and Krim (Go-Back.) Ruffle’s death did give a big impact on the Wolfriders, but it still wasn’t one of their tribe, and considering that they are mortal… 

    (However, not Ember. The girl needs to answer the call of recognition and she and Teir to break up, they simply aren’t good for each other.)

    politicalsexkitten:

    History lesson cause this is like saying reverse racism exists!

    Being seen as lighter was good in Victorian eras and women would use lead powder to achieve a whiter look because that meant they didn’t need to work outside and be in the sun, since that was a slave’s job. Whiteness was an indication to where you are in the social classes.

    NOW white people go tanning and it’s seen as ideal cause tan = sun which means they have more time to be outdoors instead of being stuck inside, working in an office. So it’s the opposite for white people. Still a symbol of social status.

    BUT being tan is only ideal if you’re a white kind of tan. Not if you’re a tan PoC. Then you’re just dark.

    And whitening/bleaching products are known to have harmful and carcinogenic ingredients, but people still use it because of European colonialism in Asia and modern white standards of beauty still imposed all over the world today. So while white people can tan, everyone else with darker skin times are still taught that lighter = better. We are taught that being pale is the only way we will be seen as beautiful.

    So the argument that what’s the big deal with saying someone looks better lighter, when white people go tanning to get darker, is completely invalid cause you fail to recognize the history and racism that comes with it and how colorism affects all PoC.

    Note to trans women:

    Your lack of shaving DOES NOT make you anything except unshaven.

    You do not look like a boy. There is no way to look like a boy when you are not. Men look like men because they know they’re men and it’s visible.

    You are beautiful.

    This is important.

Wow Google, thank you for the stunning support! The effort you put into representing this cause is fantastic! Like, wow, this doesn’t even compare to what you did for the DW 50th!

Word.

The Google Doodle usually depicts holidays, fun anniversaries, and exciting events.  More serious causes, like remembering 9/11, anti-abuse, and cancer awareness, are represented in a solemn manner with a ribbon at the bottom of the page.  The ribbon is a more respectful way for Google to show support than plastering it on every page in the form of a novelty “doodle,” especially when it may be triggering to some Google users.

"Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same; Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends…friends…friends…friends… Harry felt a great rush of affection for Luna" — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    you ever notice how if a person wants horn implants or to look like a fucking barbie doll or something it’s all fine but if a trans woman wants boobs she has to wait and go to counciling to make sure she ~REALLY~ wants them.

    Swear to god, some guys are terrified that girls are faking common interests to impress them and act really hostile towards anyone they even SUSPECT of doing such a thing

    but then they turn around and fake a whole friendship in the hopes of getting sex out of girls, and get mad at them when it doesn’t work

    and they super do not see the irony in that

    Coming Out Simulator 2014 - a half-true game about half-truths

    Coming Out Simulator is exactly what it says it is. It’s a free-to-play conversation simulator based on/inspired by the personal story of coming out of its creator, Nicky Case.

    There’s no easy answer in Coming Out Simulator, no optimal ending to be achieved if you collect the requisite amount of points. Case based the game off a pivotal moment in his own life as a teenager. And just like in real life, the moment of “coming out” in this game is traumatic no matter which way the player chooses to approach it.

    Ultimately, it’s liberating as well. But that’s not what the brunt of the experience playing Coming Out Simulator is actually like. […] There’s power in exploring a fantasy like the one in Mass Effect 3, but there’s also power in being reminded that “coming out” the way one does in that game is a fantasy, and a pretty far-fetched one for many people who faced far more difficult challenges when they actually came out.

    Coming Out Simulator is a game about that second experience. It’s a painful one. But it’s also a necessary one, that I think more people who’ve never had to struggle with their own sexual identity should see for themselves. 

    this game made me cry omfg
