limn-the-night:

While the topic of boundaries and consent has been discussed before, it wasn’t until I re-watched Disney’s Sleeping Beauty that I realized just how much of skeezeball Prince Phillip was in the 1950s version of the story. He grabs Aurora no fewer than three times, ignoring her obvious discomfort, and sneaks up on her as she tries to escape.

I wonder now if the newer scene from Maleficent on the right was deliberately set up to parallel the old one: both take place in the woods on Aurora’s sixteenth birthday. But unlike Phillip, Maleficent respects Aurora’s wish to be left alone and doesn’t chase after her when she runs away.

Because if you think about it Philip literally just met her and didn’t give a shit that she was scared or uncomfortable, he felt zero obligation to her feelings or what she wanted. To him, he’s a prince and she’s a peasant, he can do whatever he wants to her.
Whereas Maleficent had cared for Aurora all her life, sees her as someone she loves and wouldn’t purposefully try to do anything she didn’t want. She has a level of respect for Aurora that Philip could never have had upon just meeting her, because old Philip just wasn’t that considerate of a guy cause he didn’t see any need to be.

Like sunlight, she chases away the shadows, withering these walls of thorn.

Maleficent is amazing, everyone should go see it. ;-;

A/N: student/teacher is my favorite thing. honestly, i wrote this for myself, but i hope another enjoys it. i drew more from elle/angelina than their characters, so if that bothers you, fair warning.

Aurora needed excuses to see her.

cue the bllions of fanboy tears

I like it

"It’s currently unclear who exactly is filling the role of Thor going forward, as the original character wasn’t gender-swapped."

No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR.

"And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute – she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!" "

" "This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe."

meanwhile DC’s like “we love ubisoft”

YES

do you know how many sad fanboy comments i read whining about how this messes up the mythology omg i just wanna roll in them this is so golden
making asgard a floating island in space is a-ok but oh my gosh dONT YOU TAKE AWAY DAT PENIS

This is pretty fuckin cool

Well at least it’ll be an easy point to start reading from if you’re new. It’s a pain in the ass finding somewhere to start from all the old stuff

Is this really happening?? You go Marvel.

You’re much stronger than you think you are

I prefer Michael Straczynski take on a similar scene

Superman: A being capable of moving the heavens and Earth itself, will always take the time to let you just how important you really are

THINX Underwear:

OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY

AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:

For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.

AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:

After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.

THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM

I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS

LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME
