After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

This is terrifying

A Hufflepuff and Slytherin Are Friends

lilah80:

Ok, I just started contemplating Hufflepuff/Slytherin friendships and it’s made me sad.

So Hufflepuffs TOTALLY get Slytherins’ attachment to family and (non-harmful) traditions, and they’re not ones to write off a whole house of people just because of their historical…

mismatchedwhite asked:
I've read that ask you got before about Coraline, and just really wanted to tell you that ever since I read it (when I was 12 - 5 years ago) I don't think I became brave, but I think I understood I already was brave. You see, ever since, every time I get afraid (aka anxiety hits) I remember Coraline, and I remember that time when she said "when you're scared but you still do it anyway, that's brave." So thank you, Mr. Gaiman. That was one of the most wonderful gifts I've ever received.

neil-gaiman:

I was in my thirties when I figured that one out, and wrote CORALINE mostly to tell it to my daughters. I’m glad that it’s spread across the world. I’m glad it made your life better.

Red & tumblr text posts (pt 7)

We do exist. I am a black woman who at one time wished to write comics. I know of other black women who are currently writing comics: Marguerite Abouet, Carol Burrell, Spike (C. Spike Trotman), Alitha Martinez, Ashley A. Woods, Regine Sawyer, Jennifer Crute, Starline Hodge, etc. You’ve likely not seen them at many conventions due to the minuscule budget that self-publishing provides, but they exist. Perhaps they are not in great numbers, but they exist and are doing everything financially possible to increase their visibility (websites, interviews, etc.). When established male creators at well-known publishers go on popular, high-traffic websites and state that black women who write or wish to write comics don’t exist it makes it harder for the black women writers that do exist to gain visibility. People will make no effort to seek them out. An offhand comment, even one that is well meaning, can have a negative impact and be demoralizing.

Can we just talk about Smart Car doing math on how much bird - it would take to damage their cars?

Here’s serious advice. Even the nicest people have their limits. Don’t try to reach that point because the nicest people are also the scariest assholes when they’ve had enough.
