This is awkward
Roxy decided that she needed to be in the photo
This makes me laugh so hard. Like a photobombing bird torpedo.
I’ve never been more emotional about any social media post in my entire life
UPDATE: guys Beth Broderick tweeted yesterday that this Salem is THE SAME SALEM!!! He’s 20 years old man!!!! 20!
That Salem is still kicking is all I care about.
You could say I’m an optimist.
When I see people complain (and with reasons!) about the misogyny, the one-size-fits-all portrayal of women, the lack of agender/ gender non-conforming characters in fantasy books…
I’m like, can we interest you in a slice of Discworld?
Where characters making sexist claims are called on their bullshit; where women come in all sizes and shapes, professions, ages and species—and usually save the day; where there’s no seamstress-shaming; where women’s motives can’t be summed up with “men”; where impractical female armours are distinctly criticized. Where there’s a whole community considering themselves as gender-neutral…
Hell there’s even a novel called Equal Rites!
And it’s the same with racism, social injustice, everything…
I really need to read/watch the Discworld stuff.
Discworld is a lot more important than people give it credit.
I keep saying it, and I’m gonna KEEP saying it
This is one of my favorite exchanges in all of Pratchett’s works, and that’s saying something.
Seriously. Read Discworld.
If you include someone designated female at birth in a woman’s group, and that person isn’t a woman, you’re saying that having a vagina or experiencing “”“female socialization”“” (the problems with that deserve an essay) or something similar makes them essentially a woman.
That is cissexist, and many DFAB trans people are pissed off when they see it. Not everyone likes being misgendered.
And by equating womanhood with something that doesn’t apply to many trans women, you are degendering or misgendering them by proxy.
Fun fact! Trans and nonbinary people who choose not to go on hormones, get surgery, etc. are still totally valid! Nonbinary people who choose not to present as “androgynous” are still totally valid! Binary trans people who choose not to present traditionally feminine or masculine based on their gender are still totally valid!
Stop policing everyone’s identity. It isn’t difficult.
I’m re-reading Night Watch and one of the major refrains throughout the book is Sam Vimes keeps telling other cops things like “We can’t mutinee, we’re not soldiers,” “They didn’t desert, they quit, they’re civilians not soldiers.”
It just seems rather insightful given recent events in the US re: cops thinking that they’re not just soldiers, they’re soldiers in a Call of Duty game.
you have 10 seconds to think of a way to make the average vampire movie fresh and new and exciting again
A vampire going through the daily struggles of trying to hide his ever lasting boner— as rigor mortis is an unkind friend.

Everyone talks about Supernatural, but I think we’re forgetting the original way to get rid of demons:
