Gender Spiral
Never ever forget that

mid-childan-puella-magi:

-Steve Rogers was raised by an Irish-catholic single mom in New York in the Depression era
-Steve Rogers grew up with a ton of disabilities
-Steve Rogers had an apartment in an incredibly gay section of New York
-Steve Rogers was a fine arts student
-Steve Rogers completely missed the Red Scare, McCarthyism, the Cold War, Vietnam, Korea, etc.
-Steve Rogers was written by two Jewish guys
-Steve Rogers had a gay best friend and did not consider his love to be any less valid or less real
-Steve Rogers worked with Japanese-American and black soldiers in, again, the Second World War
-Steve Rogers was just in a movie about how utterly fucked up the military-industrial complex is
Basically if your Steve Rogers is a conservative commie-hating uber Christian who would be at home in a racist southern church, you’re doing something wrong.

this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow

The difference between an American figure and a Japanese figure is fucking night and day

Well yes, because American figures are generally marketed to kids, and are generally fit into a standardized pricing structure.  Japanese figures are generally specialty collector items that are individually priced to maximize the quality of each one.  

These items may also be at different scales, not enough info to judge. 

Like, there is a surprising amount of apples vs. oranges in this comparison.

reasons to not have a two-year hiatus for your tv show: fans will have a lot of time to realize the problematic things about the show and will be disillusioned when it finally airs again

#and a better adaptation of your source material will emerge and take your fans

Bad books on writing tell you to ‘WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW’, a solemn and totally false adage that is the reason there exist so many mediocre novels about English professors contemplating adultery.

Joe Haldeman (via maxkirin)

I have said this a million times. “Write what you know” is bullshit.

LEARN THINGS TO KNOW THAT ARE WORTH WRITING ABOUT.

Retro-style posters that were given out to the cast and crew of the Captain America films. I absolutely love these, and really wish they’d been the official one-sheets. The First Avenger poster is absolutely beautiful.

everybody I know has used heterosexuality as a stepping stone to coming out of the closet as gay or bi, so I think we need to have a serious conversation about whether heterosexuality exists
