bisexual-community:

In the comic books, Constantine alludes to past relationships with both women and men and is periodically depicted leaving the bed of male lovers. But NBC’s Constatine, played by Matt Ryan, doesn’t have any same-sex dates on his dance card at the moment, it seems. 

And while Cerone is right in noting a few instances where Constantine was seen getting out of bed with a man, it was more than just "one or two issues." Throughout the comic, Constantine alludes to more than just a few sexual encounters with someone of the same sex.

It’s bad enough networks don’t create bisexual characters let alone when they "straightwash" one. Make your voice heard!

  1. Sign the Petition then signal boost it to your friends on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and anything else you can think of
  2. Tweet using the hashtag #BiBlazer (A combination of Bisexual and Hellblazer) to stop the bi erasure of a canon bisexual character. Direct your tweets to @JohnConWriters and @NBCConstantine.

"If biology were the principle factor in human behavior, all around the world we would find women behaving in one way and men in another. Men and women would be just like male spiders and female spiders, whose genes tell them what to do. In fact, however, ideas of gender vary greatly from one culture to another-and as a result, so do male-female behaviors."

Slurs are not oppressive because they are offensive, they are oppressive  because slurs by nature of being slurs draw upon certain power dynamics  to remind their target of his/her/their vulnerability in a certain relation to power and as an extension of that, to threaten violence and exploitation of that vulnerability.

Love it! I have GOT to try shellac sometime soon.

It is a freaking miracle invention. I am SUPER hard on manicures and my last shellac mani lasted three weeks with nary a scratch.

Several very good methodological critiques, but I just want to add one that applies to virtually all academic research on Facebook right now: the experimental condition of zero acquaintance is almost never met in actual use. It’s true that profile photos are one of the few pieces of profile info that are almost always kept public, but generally if you see someone’s profile pic, even if you don’t know them, you share some interest or acquaintance that put them in your view in the first place.

Basically, people virtually always approach Facebook profiles with some degree of prior knowledge and accompanying biases. I’m sure there’s still a lot of negative judgment of profile photos for being “too sexy” or “too sloppy,” but there are a lot of ways that prior acquaintance could affect results in studies like these. For one thing, I suspect the specific context of prior acquaintance (eg coworker, classmate, chatted with at a party, etc.) might exert a heavy influence on the impression made. Studies like this can’t measure that, and they need to explicitly acknowledge that.

How people can understand why a pudgy white guy with a minimum wage job might want to escape to a world where he doesn’t have to deal with the mundane, but they can’t understand why a black person might want to escape to a world where they’re a human being.  We can understand why you don’t want to be a cashier in the land of Thedas, but you can’t understand why we don’t want to be a servant, backwards freak, or a slave in the same universe?

MY ORIGINAL DESIGN WONDER WOMAN IS DONE!  Designed by me and created by my wifey.  And somehow I got a little red dress out of it, too. The entire costume (wig and all) will premiere on 4th of July at CONvergence, I am so excited!  

The only thing missing is the yellow piece but I really like this better.  Man the wifey knows best  <3

Own your awesome, cosplayers of the world!

Yes!

My 14-week-old is cutting a tooth. I know because I can feel it coming through the gums. It seems to be a molar, also known as the ones that REALLY hurt.

I just. Seriously? On average, they get their first teeth at six months and they’re usually front and center.

She also pulled herself noticeably forward during tummy time today. Outliers all over the place.
