Guys this picture is so important to me. Sometimes i back out of cosplaying a character because im worried people will judge me or shame me for doing it because im black. Im constantly worried people wont take my cosplays seriously because im just a black girl dressing up as iconic white characters. And sometimes that fear makes me feel like I shouldnt do it, like cosplaying isnt for me and I shouldnt go to cons.
But meeting this little girl made me understand how important it is to show my love for characters even if they arent my race. This little girl came up to me and asked for a picture at LexCon, and I almost cried. She came up to me the ONLY black Harley in a sea of perfectly “accurate” white Harleys. And I was so happy she did, and so happy I was there. Im glad I chose to cosplay a character I love, and to be there representing black cosplayers, because now this little girl might have a little bit more confidence in herself. Maybe my being there helped this little girl see that even girls like her can be geeky and cosplay whoever they want.
I really hope so. I know this made me feel more confident. And this is a picture im gonna treasure forever!

posts about asexuality that are quick to point out that not all ace individuals are sex repulsed but don’t take into account those who are don’t sit with me very well.

in some cases there’s a certain element of trying to bring perceived “normalcy” to the asexual spectrum when there’s the quick “not all of us hate sex!” addendum, seeing as heteronormativity includes the desire/comfort of having sex. if it’s not handled well or carefully, that comment can be perceived as trying to crush negativity towards asexuality by introducing a typicality, which is harmful in a lot of ways.

asexuality is a spectrum which means the needs and wants and comforts of the individuals are vast and varying, and any attempt at negating one for the benefit of the whole is unproductive in the long run.

I watched The Winter Soldier today for the second time and oh man i drew that crossover BC THAT METAL ARM i couldn’t stop thinking about Ed whenever Bucky showed up ;;

At first I wanted to draw Al as Steve but then i thought.. wouldn’t it be great if Winry was the main main character?! I just loved the idea of her being the main hero, so yeah, i drew her as Captain OHMY and besides they’re both blondes with blue eyes

Also, in this AU everything what’s happened in the first movie of CA would be a whole different, probably Win made ‘the automail’ for Ed before they took him for the experiment,mb he’s lost his arm in some fight idK, the idea was so random, i just really wanted to draw them like that, but now, after finishing sketching it, i’m realizing how much plot of Captain America would be changed in this AU and how many characters wouldn’t be even included (such as Peggy bc Ed would ‘take’ her role partly too) 

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah holy shit im in love!!!!

NEVER BE SORRY FOR SUPERHERO WINRY AND HER TRAGIC STARCROSSED ROMANCE WITH BRAINWASHED ED

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)

I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.

I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!

this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.

I CAN’T WAIT

So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway.  Ask box is open, slam away.

When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people.  By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.

Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it.  A BLACK orphan?!  Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.

this sums up what I couldn’t quite put into words
