dank-potion: I’m really going to need people to stop saying “that makes you just as bad” to any marginalized group, whether they be PoC, women, the LGBQT community, etc. who hold anger, mistrust or resentment.

rubywhiterabbit: My little brother got into outer space and stuff so my step-mom bought him a place mat with all the planets on it. When I first saw it, I was upset, because it was newer and so Pluto wasn’t labeled. I was about to say something when I noticed something… Pluto is there. The artist remembered Pluto. Guys… The artist drew Pluto crying.

Son of Baldwin: Briefly: Marvel's THE AVENGERS →
sonofbaldwin: I finally saw Marvel’s THE AVENGERS last night. It’s probably the best action film I’ve ever seen. It was as light as it was dark; humorous as it was serious.
