That awkward moment when someone tags their photo with “#curves” but immediate follows it with the tag “#thinspiration”.

I feel like they don’t know what the last one means….

This is so tragic — and meaningless. Utterly pointless death, thanks to a lack of understanding of reality on the part of bigots.

VIVA LA PLUTO MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!

While I do think that gun laws should be amended in some way, and that media portrayals of violence perpetuate violence within our culture, I believe that a shift of focus is necessary… I feel that a greater emphasis needs to be placed upon the societal perception of masculinity and how these perceptions lead to violence. The facts are this: 1) our larger cultural and social message of manhood is that being a “real man” is directly related to the embodiment of power, dominance, intimidation, and violence; 2) statistically speaking, men disproportionately perpetrate all kinds of violence… not just against women, but against other men. Violent masculinity has become a cultural norm instead of the exception. We need to change our definitions of manhood to something that is more inclusive of the male identity in all of its forms in order to reduce violence. We need to value and respect men that reject the “tough guise”.

TECHNOLOGY IS MAKING THE YOUNGER GENERATIONS DUMBER!!!1

It’s on nights like these, when I’m afraid of monsters and other men, that I miss one monster of a man the most…

Leaving for Ireland in 19 days… holy shit!

"Frankly put. I am a FAKE GEEK GUY. I admit it. I like geek stuff, but I don’t love geek stuff. Not the way most geeks do. I’m an interloper on the geek scene. I’ve seen the movies, but I don’t know the canon. I am not a true fan.

All those things about not really loving the source material and “just watching the movies” or only reading the one book that everyone has read. That—all of that—applies to me.

But here are some things that have never happened to me. I have never been quizzed about who Data’s evil brother is to prove I like Star Trek. I have never had to justify my place in a midnight line to see Spider-man II by knowing who took up the mantle of Spider-man after Peter Parker’s death. (Peter Parker dies? Really? That’s so sad!) I have never had to explain who Nightwing is in order to participate in a conversation about Batman. (Nightwing is like….Robin on steroids, right?) I have never been asked how battle meditation works in order to voice my opinion that Enterprise shields would probably make a fight with Star Wars technology one sided. (Battle meditation is something that was in that Jedi role playing game, wasn’t it?) I have never had to beat everybody in the room (twice) at Mario Kart to prove I liked video games. I have never had my gender “honorarily” changed by having enough geek interests to be accepted (“you’re one of the guys now”). No one has ever insisted I tell them the difference between a tank and DPS in an MMORPG before allowing me to discuss raiding Molten Core. I have never been dismissed as a faker at a prequel screening because I didn’t know which admiral came out of light speed too close to the planet’s surface in The Empire Strikes Back. I have never been quizzed about Armor Class in order to get past someone who was blocking my path to the back of a game store where my friends were waiting at the tables. I have never been told I’m not a real fan. I have never been shamed for coming to a convention despite my lack of esoteric knowledge. And I have never, ever, EVER been invited to leave a fandom because I didn’t like [whatever it was] enough.

Every one of the things I have listed, I have personally witnessed happen. To women.

That’s not elitism. That’s sexism."

Yes, my friend JoEllen wrote this and I couldn’t agree more or be more proud.
